... easy. It was an awesome experience.
Once again, Joanne and I found ourselves at the front of the boat while we rode over the waves of the blue crystal water. With a slight breeze against our face, the ride around the island was beyond words. This will be one of my happy places... I just loved being here... :)
We also stopped at another beach to swim around. While swimming around, one of the staff of the boat would throw beer cans ...
... around before dinner. After I got dressed, I ran down to buy bandaids and more contact solution for Rob while he got dressed. We headed down to the Concierge Lounge for a few drinks before dinner. About 10 minutes after we sat down, a waiter came over and asked "1748?", and we said “Yes.” He asked if we were joining the Chef's Table, and we said no, that we were going to Chops. Turns out there was ...
... the kids would fill John & I in on what they had learnt about the other countries & cultures. Here's a strange coincidence - a girl from Melbourne that Lucy became friends with, actually knows another boy from Melbourne who Lucy made friends with on a previous cruise! Very small world.
Our stateroom attendant, George, was a lovely man who was upbeat and ...
... wandered on and stopped at a little beach shack and had a guavaberry margarita – it was really tasty.
We walked along the gorgeous beach, and the locals tried hard to sell us a cabana for the day, but since it was almost departure time we declined. We met up with everybody over dinner and compared notes – I think everyone had a good time at our first port of call.
Joanne later told me the French man was very nice - even offering us to have lunch with him and his family and then suggesting he take us back to the headquarters for the boat company. It would have been fun as well - If I had known. Then again, we had paid for this tour and we did have fun on it.
Overall, this was one of our best ports ever. The weather was perfect with sunny skies and lots of ...

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.
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!
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
Just returned from my second trip to St. Maarten and the Sunterra Flamingo Beach Resort.
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.
