Sunterra Flamingo Beach Resort

Hi everyone,

My wife and I will be staying at the Sunterra Flamingo Beach Resort in beautiful St. Maarten this summer.

1) Are there other restaurants (i.e. other than the resort's), which are reasonably priced, within walking distance? Names?

2) What is the average price range of cocktails at this resort (at times other than the 'Happy-Hours')?

3) Any food stores within walking distance? Names?

Regards,

I'm also off to the Flamingo on 1st September, and asked a lot of similar questions...do a search on "Seriously tempted" and you'll see my post plus a lot of really helpful info from sxmlover.

Perhaps we'll bump into you at the pool!

4 weeks, two and a half days and counting...

Hello Jules,

Thank you for your reply.

We will check out your thread "Seriously tempted" for this info.

My wife and I will be back before you go - so we will not get a chance to have a drink together at the pool.

We hope you have a great time - the resort and beach look nice.

Cheers,

Bob & Cheryl in CT

Sorry - have never been to Flamingo. Typically drinks prices at resorts or with meals are higher than buy your own in the store or at a bar.

There is a small shop across the street from Atrium and I believe Pelican has it's own little store. Both are near your resort and are probably fine for a few items.

As for a "real" grocery store, not walking distance.

We have stayed at both the Pelican and The Flamingo.

Price for alcohol are pretty much what you would pay for a drink at home. We usually buy some rum and have a before dinner cocktail on our b alconey then head down the hill to dinner. If you are playing at the casino, the drinks are free.

I would check out Pineapple Pete's, Tutta Pasta, Peg Leg Pub, etc. There are so many places nearby to eat.

Enjoy.

Hello New England neighbor loanlady,

We thank you for the info.

Getting a 'bottle for the balcony' is now in our plans. :)

Will have to try some of the restaurants many of you have suggested.
