Was promised early check-in at 1pm, came at 1, then at 2, later at 4 and could finally check in at nearly 5. Plenty of people were queing to be accommodated and got really annoyed as front desk staff didn't care. Was told by long serving hotel staff that this situation occurs regularly in December, so management has not done...

WiFi don't work, cleaning service 1 time a week, electricity going out a few times, coffee maker with no jar (I asked for a jar and it comes...

We enjoyed our stay at this resort. The rooms were partially updated. Our ocean view room (which actually had view of the bay and partial ocean view) was large and comfortable. I was going to give it a 4 star rating mostly due to the fact that the on site restaurant is sub-par, but also due to several little misses:...

The hotel/resort is located on the very opposite side of Simpson Bay from the airport at the end of Billy Folly Rd. The beach and views were great and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. There is also a convenience bar and grill right on the hotel beach. The king room with sofa bed was spacious and sliding...

Absolutely the worse check in experience of my life. It took one hour from arrival until keys to the room were given. And yes the room was available. The room was just so so. Clean but hardly worthy of a Diamond Resort. The sliding door to the balcony weighed a ton and the view from the balcony was of a...

Flamingo beach resort is a large hotel /timeshare property with good beach access, free in-room wi-fi for multiple devices and an on-site bar and restaurant. We stayed in a Studio apartment and we were surprised at how large, modern and well equipped the accommodation was. If we come back to Saint martin / Sint Maarten - which is a good...

My room was only so so. It had a sliding glass door that weighed a ton and was almost impossible to lock. WiFi was very inconsistent. Sometimes it would work, sometimes not. Forget about trying to stream Netflix though. Lucky if you can even connect. Maid comes once every three days. Overall just three stars. Staff was nice though.

So far we have enjoyed our time at the resort. We like the location and the beach here. The pool just reopened today so it was nice being able to sit by the pool but also be able to run into the sea for a swim. The island is having power outages but the resort had plenty of backup power...

The rooms here a little awkward, A side and B side it seems. B side is definitely much bigger, A side is smaller than your usual studio. The internet and cable were out much of the time, not sure if this was an island issue but when driving around seemed like It was just the hotel. The pool was being...

Beautiful white sand, sparkling blue waters, sunny skies - where else can you find all of this but in Saint Martin/Saint Maarten in the Caribbean? When you stay at Flamingo Beach Resort, you will have all of this, and more. Here you can have the most relaxing vacation of your life, or enjoy some of the many outdoor adventures in the area. If you love water sports, you can go windsurfing, swimming and snorkeling. See the scenery on horseback, or go for a hike along the many trails. You will never be bored while you are staying here, unless of course you simply want to sit back and do nothing, which you are more than welcome to do. Just imagine spending a week or longer just lying around on the beautiful beaches. ... more   less
