A taste of paradise on The Friendly Island

Crystal blue water, immaculate powder-white beaches and evening skies streaked with sunset-orange clouds - it doesn't get any better than this. Take it all in from the Flamingo Beach Resort, situated at the water's edge on Simpson Bay -- the Dutch side of St. Maarten. Spacious suites are flooded with natural light and cooled by sea breezes. Stay busy with scuba diving, windsurfing, snorkeling, hiking and a host of other activities, all within minutes of the Flamingo Beach Resort. Or, take the opportunity to lie in the sun and do nothing at all.

Highlights
  • Spacious suites with a full kitchen and balcony or terrace
  • Minutes from Princess Juliana International Airport
  • Within walking distance of casinos, shopping and restaurants
  • Infinity edge pool, plus beachfront filled with water sports and an activity center
Rooms

Bright, fresh studio and one-bedroom suites at the Flamingo Beach Resort offer the comforts of home, like spacious sitting areas, fully equipped kitchens, air conditioning, coffee-makers, flat-panel TVs and satellite channels. But the main draw:  Balconies or terraces, some with views of the Caribbean, swaying palm trees and the sounds of rolling waves.

Features

An activity center at Flamingo Beach Resort helps guests plan everything from deep-sea fishing to parasailing. There's also plenty to do without leaving the resort -- stop in the gift shop to pick up some souvenirs, and enjoy great meals and drinks at Topper's by the Sea Restaurant. A sparkling infinity pool provides a great spot to cool off or the perfect backdrop for soaking up some rays.

Duty free shopping is a highlight of any visit to St. Maarten. Flamingo Beach Resort guests who need a little retail therapy can venture to Front Street in Philipsburg, the open-air market in Marigot or the high-end, European-style shops on the French side of the island.

Dining

Topper's by the Sea is a popular gathering spot for great dinners -- crab-stuffed Mahi-Mahi is a favorite -- as well as events like the Caribbean show and buffet, lobster party and live music Tuesdays. Chill out under a grass-thatched umbrella overlooking calming Caribbean waters.

Location ruined all

This is a wonderful resort we own a timeshare in. We booked three extra days and were placed in Building 4, which is a walk from the beach and the main building we have always stayed in. (We were not aware of this when we booked.) The room had no view, and the balcony attracted mosquitoes so we couldn't sit out there in the evening as we normally do. We were told we had been upgraded from a studio to a 1BR, but the 1BR was considerably smaller than the spacious studio in this resort. The kitchen was so small there wasn't enough room for the equipment, so all the plates and bowls were stacked on top of each other. To get a dinner plate you had to first take out the salad plates and bowls. (In fairness, the bathroom was quite large.) The location really ruined the experience for us. I would not book here again unless I could guarantee I would be in the main building.

The Peli Deli, which is in the resort, has great pastries delivered from the French side of the island every morning around 9. They go fast. We also buy the local paper there and learn what's going on around the island.

Perfect stay

I was looking for somewhere to relax for 3 weeks and found it. Everything was perfect; large comfortable well equipped rooms; beaches lovely. Housekeepers, security and maintenance staff very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff however was not helpful at all. All of them; the concierge, car rental agent and all the front desk agents had serious chips on their shoulders. Find people that don't mind helping guests. The switchboard operator was very helpful.

great 2 week getaway

The unit was above average; some difficulty with maintenance, but the staff was good and made up for some of the wasted time by my wife and I. The location was so near the water and beach and snorkeling and water sports are a plus. Beach towels were hard to get, the return building was not always open, so you would have to go to the front desk and stand in line and that took time away from other things that we wanted to do. Being on the 5th floor without a working elevator was a little inconvenient as well.

overall quite satisfied

The room, or rather an apartment, is huge. It has everything you need. It is kept at a nice temperature (not too hot not too cold) and even though it's not right by the water, it is only a 3 minute walk to the pool/beach area. The check in/out time is indeed a bit inconvenient (and they do reinforce those), but it didn't bother me too much. The location was great for me. I didn't rent a car so went around by bus (quite convenient!), and the hotel is about 10 minute walk to the main road where you can take the bus to either Philipsburg or Maho Beach.

another great vacation in Saint Martin!

Great hotel and very good location which is a short drive from the airport. The hotel has everything one could ask for located directly on the beach in Simpson Bay. There are other hotels with restaurants within walking distance. I rented a car but if someone did not, there is plenty to do within walking distance. The staff is very friendly. The pool is spacious and clean. Excellent view of the bay from the pool. Restaurant on the beach with very good food. After some research, I discovered that the rates for this hotel are very reasonable! Second time staying at Flamingo. I hope to return in less than a year!
