Undoubtedly, the best location in the Simpson Bay area. Hard to imagine a better location in all of SXM. The Flamingo is right on the point of Pelican Key with a much nicer beach than any of the other Simpson Bay accommodations. Hotel and grounds were very well maintained. My room (7403) overlooked the pool and the beach area. Hard...

We stayed 7 days in a first floor studio at this resort. The room was decent. Small kitchen across from the bed. There was a small sitting area with couch, table and TV. We were lucky however. Open the door, walk about 20 ft and we were on the beach!! The room faced west so we saw incredible sunsets every...

This review is more about St Maarten in general, rather than just the Flamingo Beach Resort. The "suites" were quite nice - very clean and updates to the kitchen area and bathroom were quite evident. Parking was tricky, thankfully most rentals in St Maarten are compact!! The beach area is not very expansive - we found it better to drive...

I booked 5 rooms six months in advance of my trip to celebrate my birthday for a 7 night stay using diamond points and through orbitz. I emailed the resort many times asking that they try to accommodate me in a beach front or beach view room. After traveling over 16 hours to the resort, I arrived to a room...

We are truly sorry to hear that your recent experience here at Flamingo Beach Resort was less than perfect for you. The resorts positioning may prevent us from being able to offer ocean views to every guest of the resort however, we assure you that we do our best to honor every request asked of us regretfully it is not...

Went to St Maarten for a long weekend with a friend for a quick 5 day getaway and had a great time. The location is excellent, (they are currently undergoing renovations but doesn't make the property loud or uncomfortable), the staff was friendly, and the property is clean and comfortable. As far as location, you can get any better than...

My husband and I booked the Flamingo Beach Resort through RCI. Overall the stay was fantastic. The resort overlooks Simpson Bay. Our unit was in the Hilltop Building #4. We did have a view of the ocean and evening sunsets from our balcony. The unit was equipped with a full kitchen, toaster, microwave, blender, dishwasher and washer and dryer. It...

I could not find the Villas, a Diamond Property and connected to the resort. The villas are not beach front and only 1-bedroom. Small and weathered, our paper towel holder fell apart, the paint was coming off the moulding, the kitchen was small, no cutting board to we had to improvise. Parking is on a hill; the best thing about...

Stayed here for a week over the Christmas holiday in the beach villas. Property was very clean, everyone very friendly. The only thing keeping my rating from being 5/5 was that the front desk was not very helpful at all when it came to answering questions about directions, or even some general questions about navigating roads on the island (I...

Every encounter with staff included greetings and smiles as if we were at a five star resort. Our room was outdated, but clean and comfortable with a large balcony overlooking the ocean. We found a secluded part of the beach to swim, and enjoyed most days there. We bought some burgers and enjoyed grilling one day as there are grills...

Clean older property but, diamond is improving everyday . They put a new stove in while we were there, and had good quality cookware which made it more enjoyable for 2 weeks, especially since restaurants are expensive on st Martin.

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.

Just imagine spending a week or longer just lying around on the beautiful beaches. ... more   less
