La Casa Hotel
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Have been frequenting the Flamingo over the last decade, most recently 2 years have passed since my previous stay.
Am relieved to say nothing has changed.
This despite them being swallowed up by the voracious North Beach Village Group, who has made it their mission to take over this entire neighborhood! To be fair, the area has been in decline since the arrival of the monstrous W/Hilton/Ritz beachfront towers that shadow the streets inland. NBV has taken many of the run down properties and re-imagined them in an all-white, clean line design....with spare, Hospital/IKEA chic rooms... clever branding...but rather bland.
Glad to see they have allowed the Flamingo to stay it's course with it's classy, creamy yellow exterior and character filled interiors. The rooms remain unchanged since my first stay....and have stood up remarkably well due to a combination of the initial investment in quality fittings/furniture, upkeep by the staff and a clientele that I dare say treats them like a friends "guest room"! Also amazingly unchanged is the staff, most who have been here for many years and who also seem determined to keep the status quo.
Professional, friendly and intuitive. (loved how my room was made up so quickly as I breakfasted!)
It truly is the little things that make the Flamingo stand out, the incense burning in the foliage, sun tan lotion available, beach chairs for use and the offer of a drink (or 2!) in the evening.
Kudos to ownership/management not to stream-line these niceties for the sake of the bottom line!
(did visit North Beach Village's "Royal Palms"...very flash in the aforementioned "white" way...but would find it intrusive to have my resort taken over by a weekly dance party and a constant stream of outside traffic using the food services/facilities.)
So, overall the Flamingo continues to fit my need for a quiet, private retreat for a break.

ps: Perfect? Well no....rooms lack any real lighting suitable for reading and while the beds/bedding are comfortable enough the flat, hard pillows made me ultimately long for home!

This was our second stay at the Flamingo Resort. They continue to set a high standard for quality with their beautiful property, lush, tropical plants in the courtyard/pool area and the beautifully appointed rooms. They staff is friendly and professional. The room service was thorough and exceptionally fast in the cleanup of your room each morning.
They offer a true "happy hour" each evening to encourage guest to get to know one another and them. Again, quality through and through.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are adequately sized and beautifully decorated. There are a variety of room size o...

First of all I want to thank the great staff at the Flamingo for there wonderful hospitality.
This resort with its beautifully decorated suites and lush landscaping, provides one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The staff is very attentive and efficient and are always concerned for the guests well being.
It was really nice to lay poolside and work on my tan, without being disturb by outsiders, The one thing I like most about the resort, They do not allow day passes, so while I am there I felt very safe, knowing no one will be crusin me or my partner. and we can have our intimate time to relax.
The Flamingo is our home away from home and we look forward to return again and again , and again...

Room Tip: Sun all day and very private courtyard.

I have stayed at all of the all male - clothing optional places in Fort Lauderdale. This one is by far the best. Manager Tony Singh is so accommodating - he gives personal attention to every detail and responds expeditiously to all requests. The interiors of the rooms all have character. There is no "day spa" - this affords better security than there would be otherwise. The clientele is refined, yet not stuffy. Many of them come back as regulars. Happy Hour brings everyone together if one so desires to join the group. Bill Pelle

Very pleasant resort, in a walking position from Sebastian Beach. Very nice, well kept, clean and, above all, with nice and pleasant hosts. Rooms are nice furnished and the small pool in the green yard makes your staying very pleasant during the wet summer days. Highly recommended!

Our stay was a last minute, simple over night stay in Ft. Lauderdale. We had the fortune of meeting Tony earlier in the Summer when he gave us a guided tour of the property for future stays. This was a spontaneous stay in Ft. Lauderdale and when we reached out to check availability just prior to the closing of their office at 7pm...we reached Kevin as Tony had already left for the day. Apparently they do in deed have a process to secure a key for after-hours arrival, but Tony said that he would confirm the accommodations and await our 10 minute arrival to greet us. The next morning we were welcomed with just the right touch of an expanded complimentary continental breakfast... presented beautifully in Five-Star style in the Morning Room where we met Jorge who was pleasant and accommodating. We also enjoyed the immaculate kept pool and sun deck which are basked in a crisp "Sunshine Yellow" motif with a plethora of chaises, a few cabaret tables & chairs and a central focus of a yellow gazebo. I had done my homework prior to our initial tour and learned that the design of this boutique resort had been created by the previous VP of The Ritz-Paris, henceforth my high expectations prior to arrival. We have stayed at many Gay Resorts and only one other in the US compares to the Flamingo. Enjoy your stay...you will not be disappointed and you will return!

Room Tip: Enjoy the suites if you are staying longer!
