hotel is close to beach and restaurants

Pros: hotel was ok
Cons: staffs should be more attentive and do what they promise to do
Location: close to everything
The hotel is close to the beach, restaurants, and stores. It was easy to get around. However, the hotel management sucked and the staffs were not helpful at all. We stayed there for 5 days and 4 nights and did not get our room cleaned once. We asked the front desk staffs and they said the hotel only cleans the guest rooms every 3 days and our room would be cleaned on the 3rd day. On the 3rd day, we came back to our room and it was still dirty and we had no clean towels and toilet papers. We were tired to ask for the clean room so we just asked the front desk for some clean towels and toilet papers. They said the staff would bring up to the room in 15 minutes. It did not happened. We stopped at the front desk on the way out and reminded them to bring clean towels. There were still no towels when we came back. We had to physically go to the front desk, asked for all the stuff and carried them upstairs with us. On the 5th day, the hotel offered a gift for our trouble but we did not want it. If we come back to St. Marteen, we will not stay there ever again.

Location!

Pros: As above location! View! Beaches!
Cons: Rooms themselves are outdated. Hot water.
Location: Restaurants, Casino & Piano Bar
What is so special to me about Flamingo Beach is its location. I love the beaches, the sunsets at night, the pool. There are some issues with the hotel itself. We were on the first floor with a pool and ocean view that was awesome! The rooms are spacious and have everything you need in them full kitchen, blender, microwave, coffee pot & toaster. There are 2 flat screens TV's. A pull out couch and 2 chairs. A nice table inside and table and chairs on the balcony. It is dated though if your looking for plush this is not your resort. The service and security people are all very friendly and awesome. We did lose power while we were there 3 times it was not a big inconvenience for us and alot of times we did not have hot water it was warm. What is so special to me is this is walking distance to many restaurants also right across the street is the Piano Bar which had some great music and also right there is Hollywood Casino which has Texas Hold Um Poker which worked out good for us too. Would I go back YES we have stayed there the last 3 years but I understand its not for everyone.

Great hotel, beaches, walk to restaurants & grocer

Pros: Suite and grounds clean and neat, staff friendly and helpful.
Location: Great location with all amenities a short walk away.
Have no complaints at all about this hotel. We're even given an unsolicited upgrade which was fantastic, especially after airline delays of 24 hours.

nice hotel by the beach, but wi fi was bad

Pros: our room was nice the kitchen was great, the place was clean, friendly staff and nice views. reasonably priced.
Cons: WI FI, they give a password but it didn't work most of the time!
Location: We enjoyed bay Rouge, the nicest beach and maho beach by the airport was fun.
It was nice but as much as I like to forget everything else while on Vacation I still want to know that my home and job is ok with out me, I had to go to the front desk to connect to WI FI and that was a bit annoying, waters are beautiful, the restaurant on the beach at the hotel was like fast food at sloww and distracted service. the snorkeling is so so, not a lot of fish but still enjoyable! the best meals We had where the ones we cooked at our room, the kitchen was pretty complete, very happy about that, staff was friendly, I would come back.

Overall we were happy

Visited in late August 2013 - The front desk staff was nice, the room was fine, it was nice having the fully stocked kitchen, our view of the beach/ocean was good, awesome sunset view, the beach was never too crowded, the pool was open late into the night (or at least nobody made us get out), the activities desk was convenient, there were always taxis waiting outside, and Bon Appetit across the street was a convenient breakfast spot.  If you have an ocean view room there's a chance you'll hear noise from 5am to 10pm from Topper's restaurant right downstairs.  The sound of dishes clanking, the kitchen exhaust fan running, and most of all the shopping cart full of dishes that they push back and forth on a brick pathway to where they're washed was annoying.  If we went back I'd try another resort, but I don't have any major complaints.
