Resort was lovely....staff so accommodating...food plentiful and tasty. Drinks very good! The Spa was wonderful; 1st class!! We had the 'all exclusive' and it was definitely worth it. So relaxing! My son's wedding was held here and it could not have been any better... The venue on the beach, flowers, food, music was awesome! The only thing I wish was...

If you're under 60 and you still like to have fun at night, I would avoid this one. But if all you're looking for is a comfortable resort on a beautiful beach with NO night life or entertainment what so ever, you would be pleased. I'll give the resort credit for it's nice, modern rooms, nice pool, friendly staff, and...

We understand your comments and we're sad that you didn't find a better fit for your vacation style than our little family resort. It's true, we are not party central, but nor do we pretend to be. We like to think we strike a happy medium between spring-break-style partying and "grandma's dream resort" so I have to admit, your comments...

After one week of adventures in the jungle, it was awesome to have R & R at this hotel. It was very quiet, with the exception of the wedding on the one weekend. The beach was wonderful and the waves were great for boogie boarding! The hotel did not give us the room with a king bed which we booked...

We are sorry you didn't get the King Bed that you booked, but let me use this opportunity to do a little consumer education: We don't expect our guests to understand hotel property management systems, but truthfully speaking, specific room types can never be truly guaranteed by third-party agencies like Expedia because they do not have real-time access to our...

Welcome to Flamingo Beach Resort, and that is how they make you feel. Service unlike the hotels in the U.S.- bell cap, a term probably unfamiliar to some, they actually load your luggage on a cart and take it to your room for you and point out all the features of your room. The accommodations are clean and comfortable with...

We were originally going to another resort. However after reading mostly very positive reviews,we switched to the Flamingo. We are quite excited to be going there,but have concerns around the way our emails have been handled. Our supplier does not sell the all inclusive package. We were able to buy a package that included breakfast. Through these reviews,we've learned that...

We usually prefer that our guests at least STAY with us before writing a review online, as doing it this way could be perceived as a "coercion tactic," a way to try to get something for nothing by threatening to write a bad review. Unfortunately, that is what gives these self-review sites a bad name among hoteliers. Imagine having to...

Great beach, comfortable beds, good food, best yoga teacher......all in all....very nice get a way! Local wildlife....ocean full of life....fish, rays, pelicans, all vibrant and healthy. The staff was helpful and pleasant, especially Lulu, the activities director. I also was able to purchase some local crafts at the gift shop.....interesting puzzle boxes.....and not outrageously expensive.

We stayed at the resort for 3 nights in February 2013. From the parking lot, the hotel does not look especially impressive but once you enter, you are in a spacious, relaxing environment. It is sort of understated, which I enjoyed, i.e., not ostentatious. The rooms were clean and average size with a nice balcony. The three of us (my...

I will give the A+ for everything. Customer Service, attention to details, food,and accommodations where more than we were expecting... Pool and beach are convenient and easy access. Our package included breakfast, and I have to say that it is worth it... Totally recommended! The hotel is a little far from the airport, so I recommend to rent a car.

We stayed at the resort for 9 days in January 2013 with 3 other couples. Beautiful resort! Gorgeous beach! Incredible pool and pool bar! Wonderful service, especially from the bar staff( Elias, Manolo and Carolina) The breakfast plan was well worth the extra $10 per day. Hated to leave. Will definitely return!!

What a wonderful review of your Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa vacations; thank you so much! Nine days is a bit longer than most of our guests stay with us, so the fact that you were happy and contented for all of those days says a lot. We truly appreciate your business and do hope that you will return soon....
