The Flamingo is a great place to stay when on a budget. It is reasonable, clean, comfortable and offers a great view and has easy access to the beach. There are A/C units in the bedroom area (entrance into the room) and the living/dining area (door to balcony). Our room (2 queen bed, plus sleeper sofa) would easily sleep six people, but might be a bit tight with that many. The kitchen is the size of an efficiency apartment; big enough to fix breakfast and lunch, but might be a challenge to fix dinner as there isn't much counter space. They have a coffee maker, dishes, glasses, and silverware for 4 to 6. There are cooking utensil, but not a lot of pots and pans. There is no toaster.
There are two TVs with cable; 32" flat screen in the bedroom and a 19" standard in the living room. There was no DVD player, but did have hook ups for one. There is WiFi, but it's sketchy at best & on the balcony it's almost non-existent.
We definitely would stay her again. The only complaint we had, other than the WiFi was the humidity. I'm not sure if it was just our room, the change in weather, or what, but when we first got there the A/C had been left on super cold and everything in the room was damp (literally floor to ceiling). We stayed three days and it never did completely dry out. We mentioned it to the front office and they seemed surprised. So, obviously no one else had that problem. Leaving the bathroom exhaust running the whole time did help a bit, but when we packed to leave even the clothes we had handing on hangers were damp.
At any rate, give it a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.
