I can only say what I percieve to be true about this place. This is a rinkydink operation that should not be allowed to call itself a resort. There is a tiny lobby with nobody on the reception desk and a generally rundown look everywhere. The pool is tiny and the bar around the pool has been closed for years. There is no gift shop, no restaurant, and wifi olny in the lobby. The walk up to the property from the main road is almost a 45 degree slope and would challange all but the fittest person.
Some of the photos used to advertise this property are not the Flamingo Marina Resort. They are photos of the privately owned condominiums at the beach level below this resort. They also advertise access to a private beach which is also used by the condominium clients and, the locals have every right to use that beach too and they do. So, not so private. Most of that beach is dangerously rocky and often very rough anyway.
Oddly, the flamingo Marina Resort has no Marina. There is a marina being built down the road but it has nothing to do with this resort. The noise and dust from that marina construction was horrible. Trucks were dumping rocks all day every day. The construction is supposed to take years.
Some of the reviews that I have read about Flamingo Marina Resort are actually written about the private comdominiums, which are very nice but they are a completely different business. Read carefully!
Really folks, there is nothing resort-like about this place. It is in decline. Don't be tempted by their lower prices, there is a good reson why they are lowering prices. It is way over priced for what you get.

Dont book a room here!
The room we were given was not the room we booked. This was easily seen since this room was very torn down and there was a CONSTRUCTORAL difference, it did not have the VALTED ROOF, nor the GLAS DOOR in the living room. More over:
- It lacked the aircon in the living room
- It lacked plants and paintings
- It lacked the armchairs
- It lacked the sofa table
- Furnitures were very old and torn

But worse was that the appartment was very very dirty. Even though the receptionist claimed they had just been there cleaning when we checked in, there was a trail of ants in the kitchen by the sink clibing around on the kitchen bench. The outside of the once white cupboards were brownish of dirt. It was dust on the shelfs and the duvet in the bed had large brown stains. It was also a hole in the closet and a hole in the roof outside the door. I would say that this place was a dump...
Also, the pool bar, restaurant and dance floor had been permanently closed. Seemed like a dirty ghost hotel from the 70’s.
Since we are travelling with a 9 months baby and need to cook we showed the receptionist the ants etc and asked if she ad another room available (the one we booked that obviously was given to someone else). Unfortunatelly she had nothing to offer us so we had to check out and leave since it was already late.... and we still had to pay 200$ for a place we couldnt stay at! Horrible Hotel that shouldnt continue to scam people!

My husband and I had a live in private chefs position for a week here.This resort used to be a hotel and it shows.Sadly the reminisces of the long closed hotel are still here.An unstaffed reception,A closed boutique store and restaurant. It was a bit sad.Flamingo was once full of thriving hotels which have now been turned into huge condos.That being said,Flamingo Marina was a great experience.The condos are beautiful.The grounds are right on the beach and lovely for walks or sunset.The pool was beautiful, but again, the thatched beach bar is long closed.It would be lovely to see it opened again.You need a wristband to use the pool but again,we didn't see anyone who would verify that.The pool,although incredible was mostly empty but the views are spectacular even if a poolside Marguerita was missing and a closed restaurant that could have added that special touch.If you want to buy up a little piece of paradise,Flamingo has it all,even if the marina resort hasn't.

As Americans we forget that not everything is at our fingertips and we go to another country. With that said. You have to have the amenities that people advertise such as propane in the gas grill, Wi-Fi internet, and how about locking doors. Those are just some things that are a must when you advertise them. You should never have any trouble. Ther main issue is it was listed by a company who knows nothing about the property. The pool they sent me pictures of was of someone else's...somewhere else in another location. Not the one we were staying at. With all that said though we did everything we could to make it work and we did just fine. But I'm sure there's better updated locations even though the view was amazing.

This is a great location with beautiful bay views from the rooms and outdoor balcony. Sunrise scenes were amazing. The private beach was very pleasant with wonderful swimming, and the beautiful Playa Flamingo is within walking distance. The manager was always available and very helpful with local recommendations and also helped when we had communication issues with a tour company. I would give this place 3 1/2 stars, but aren't able to give 1/2 stars on the Trip Adviser reviews. WiFi was only available in the lobby and pool area, but free. There is a lot of potential for this location, it would take some investment, but this could be a 5 star resort.

Room tip: There may be some construction, ask for quiet room
