Flamingo Beach Resort
Reviewed 24 November 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Flamingo Beach Villas in the first week of October. When we arrived at the airport, we opted to take the bus to the resort since the cab charges $10.00 a person. The bus (mini van) was only $ 2.50 each( no brainer), dropped us off at the Flamingo's sister resort Royal Palm Beach resort, where they have a free shuttle to the Flamingo. The Royal Palm is right on the main street, easy walking distance to the local restaurants.
The staff at the Flamingo was wonderful, helpful and polite. We were in a one bedroom villas. The villa was very rooming and clean...The beach and pool were clean..... The shuttle service runs from 9 to 5. So we had to cab it if we wanted to go to the main drag. We rented a cell phone for $ 40 for the week. XTreme Communication right on the strip next to the Royal Palm. Ask for Doris. I would love to visit the St. Maarten again. Probably at the Royal Palm, since it's close to everything.

My husband and I spent a week at the Flamingo Resort this past October. This resort is beautifully maintained, the staff friendly, and quick to respond to any questions or problems. We had a studio room, with a full kitchen and a great ocean view on the top floor. It was so relaxing to have our coffee on the balcony every morning, with the sound of the ocean surf, the breeze rustling through the palm trees, and the sun rising over the hills!! We would definitely recommend this resort to our family and friends.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor, with an ocean view facing southeast and overlooking the pool area.

I love, love, love this resort! This year, 2013, I have visited the Flamingo Beach Resort 3 times, which is the reason I call it My Carribean Home. The beach area is beautiful. The staff are all friendly and will go out of their way to make you happy. I had Mosquitos in my room and they were quick to give me a spray that worked well on the bites and changed my room quickly. They even followed up to ensure that I was ok. My favorite bartender, Stevie, is funny and friendly plus, he makes the absolute BEST frozen mimosas in the world. Restaurants, a casino, the Piano Bar and even a small grocery store are all within the resort that you can walk to. It's very safe and a beautiful place to relax during the day, watch sunsets in the evening and party at night. #TFWPassion. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The ocean view room on an upper floor is worth it!!

Good location, good value, nice beach in front of the hotel with beach chairs and umbrellas, 2 minutes far away from supermarket, activity desk available, car rental from hertz with cars starting from 51 usd per day, good restaurant/bar on the beach, 15 minutes far away from airport. The rooms are big, with all the necessary equipment that you need, even if outside is very hot inside the room the walls are keeping chill air. The staff is very helpful and friendly, all the resort has security, it's safe. For sure we will come back here !

My wife and I were delayed in Saint Maarten coming back from our honeymoon. We found the Flamingo Beach Resort online. The price was right so we booked. We got in late and the man at the desk was very helpful and offered to hold our bags while we got something to eat as the room was not quite ready. When we returned and made it to our room, we noticed that the corridors were very barren and, frankly, ugly. When we entered our room, we were hit with a musty smell and my wife and I agreed that the room was probably top-of-the line...in the 80s. It did not feel totally clean and the walls and base-boards had numerous chips and scuff marks that evidenced that the room desperately needed some TLC. All of that said, the view was amazing, the price was very reasonable and the service was excellent. With some work, this hotel could be a gem.

Just returned from a week at this resort. It is just amazing, we keep going back. From check in to check out just perfect. The staff is always beyond helpful, the accommodations clean and fresh. I started each morning with Kevin doing water aerobics. He really does a fabulous job instructing and so knowledgeable in giving great exercising tips to do even on your own. Can't wait to return. The reservation team, front desk, bar staff, and restaurant all pay such close attention to making your stay memorable. Can't say enough about it. Just wish they had an exercise room on site, but you can go to their sister property to work out.
