Historical Traveler Reviews Flamingo Beach Resort Philipsburg
Flamingo Beach Resort--just wonderful!
My husband and I and our 3 boys, stayed at the Flamingo the last week of August. Very nice resort; great pool, good beach with good snorkling right there. Our one bedroom was very roomy, had a few minor problems with the TV, stove and optaining a cot for my oldest son; but the staff fixed our TV and our stove and my son just brought in the chaise lounge from the patio and used that. The resort was close to a little convenience store with a resturant on top, we had access to use the pool at the Peligan Resort, we felt very satisfied with the overall resort and location. The only thing I would improve on was their laundry facility..needs to have a few more machines in it. We would definately go back and stay at that resort!
we love the flamingo and have been there 3 times. i usually check out other places on the island just to be sure that i am staying at the best you cannot beat the location -- close to 4 other top hotels, water sports, and restaurants. the management is very accomodating and really tries to stay on top of maintaining the property. have a great trip!
Review from a St. Marteen Local
This hotel is beautiful. There are many places to go from here. The beach is pretty and the people are friendly. There are several clubs in the area and if you are looking for a good time you must go to the Orient Beach. Other places include:Mullet Bay, Pinel Island and Cupecoy Beach.If you have any questions and need to meet a friendly local E-mail me for any questions.
Don't Go to the Dutch side
We Stayed at the Flamingo Beach Sunterra Resort on the Dutch side of the Island.The accommodation is inferior to our usual standard. It needs refurbishment. The staff are over worked and underpaid and it shows they are grumpy and unfriendly. One cannot sunbath topless here if female but obviously all males can. Sexual discrimination. The beach is beautiful but full of very overweight loud Americans. I think this is the poor Americans bolthole similar to the UK and Player de las Americas in Tenerife. BUT The French side of the Island however is fun. Full of good restaurants, superb beaches, topless sunbathing and many slim beautiful French friendly people. Its a shame we stayed at the Flamingo Beach. We spent a fortune hiring a car and travelling to the French side. If you go go French Side.
Flamingo Beach Resort- Awesome
I visited St. Martin in August of last year and stayed at the Flamingo Beach Resort on the Dutch side and it was fabulous- the staff were very accomodating and helpful. The resort was exceptional clean and staff very curtious. I would highly recommend the Flamingo Beach to anyone thinking about staying ther!!!
Loved the Sunterra Flamingo Beach
What a lovely resort! The staff was excellent and so warm and friendly. When we arrived on Sunday afternoon, the room we were assigned was undergoing some minor repairs. So, the bellboy (without any prompting on my part) promptly moved our luggage to a penthouse suite that was complete with sundeck and rooftop jacuzzi -- FABULOUS!!! The beach bar/restaurant was very good with excellent drinks and freshly prepared grilled items ranging from steak pitas and burgers to pork chops and grilled fish. I highly recommend the Sunterra Flamingo Beach Resort!
Very enjoyable Caribbean getaway
Overall the Flamingo is a great place to stay. The rooms are clean and large, our balcony had beautiful ocean and pool views and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The beaches are very nice and the water is crystal clear and blue. The pool is great too but it is a bit shallow--5 feet--so its more of a wading pool. The beach bar was good--affordable drinks and good lunch items and they also sponsored bingo games. A word to the wise: I'd say 80% of the people who stay here are over 50. If you are looking for a crazy spring break environment, it is not here. But if you are over 50 or don't care about a more youthful environment, then the Flamingo is ideal. Also I would strongly recommmend renting a car for your stay. You will definitely want to venture out to Grand Case and Marigot for the fabulous food and also to Orient beach for a bit of the French Riviera in the Caribbean. I highly recommend the Flamingo.
Best place in the Carribean
Been going there for 12 years now and the Resort has the most friendly staff on the Island. Their nightly Entertaiment for everyone there and throw good parties. quite right on the beach and if your at the age of 16
Great place! Friendly people! Beautiful Beach!
Just returned from my second trip to St. Maarten and the Sunterra Flamingo Beach Resort.
It's a great place located right on the water where you can go swimming 24/7. The beaches are very clean (they are raked in the morning by the staff) and well-maintained (chairs, etc. brought in each evening) and the people are very friendly and make you feel welcome.
There are so many things to do during your visit: Swimming, snorkeling, exploring the island (both the Dutch and the French side) by car or on a scheduled tour, shopping in Phillipsburg, dining at one of the many restaurants located nearby, taking a boat trip to one of the neighboring islands... all while getting a nice tan as the weather is always at least in the 80's. Be prepared to wear your bathing suit every day.
We took the catamaran trips to St. Barth's (a beautiful French island with narrow roads and beautiful beaches) again this year and also to Prickly Pear (a deserted island where there is some of the best snorkeling) and had a barbeque lunch there prepared by chefs who came in by boat. It was a lot of fun and a lot of swimming and great food.
Sint Maarten/St. Martin is a wonderful place to vacation and the Flamingo is a great place to stay during your trip.
We LOVE Flamingo Beach
We will visit Flamingo for the 2nd time next week. Our first trip, we were in a studio unit. Very nice, with a full kitchen and sliding curtains to separate the bedroom/kitchen area from the living room area. Very important when you snore and have a wife who is a light sleeper.
Full kitchen with microwave, full sized fridge and full sized stove/oven.
Very nice, though small, beach. Drop towels down early to reserve one of the "tiki huts" on the beach.
This time we'll be in a 1-bedroom unit. Even larger. Also very nice.
Front desk staff very nice.
The only drawback is its location on the Dutch side. We'll be trkking out to Grand Case for dinner every night (about 30 minutes), but it's well worth it if you want - and can afford - a tremendous dinner every night.

... homes of the very rich (some famous, some not). We snorkeled with one lonely turtle and later splashed about in the surf. We had a lunch similar to our chicken, fish, and rice lunch in Grenada (and pretty much the same as the one we had the following day in St. Lucia). Of course, this being a Caribbean catamaran cruise, the bar was open after snorkeling and rum flowed freely.

Anyway ..... after the stroll we went back to the hotel. I engaged in my typical buzz head shower and then .... Sleep came quickly. I tried to make some moves on my wife but she was having none of my wine fueled shena****ns.

Another shore day but we are keeping to the shade ! Temperature is 28 degrees today. "80F" very, very warm . Five ships in port including Royal Caribbean's "Anthem of the Seas" which makes our "Oceana" seem very small, In fact we have large ships either side and one behind us so feeling a bit hemmed in. !.30 pm here [4 hours in front of you]. Seems to be getting hotter although people returning from shore are taking up positions on the sun deck loungers. Even iced ...
As we have been here before on our Christmas cruises when we lived in Florida, we decided just to visit the Dutch side of the island - St. Maarten and not go to the French side this time - St. Martin.
After quite a long walk from the ship - plenty of shade provided by the huge cruise ships docked on either side of us - Allure of the Seas, Regal Princess, Celebrity Silouette and the Carnival Freedom - we caught the ...
