You feal you landed in France the minute you get there. The beach is great. The pool at the villas are fun after a day at the beach. The staff are all very nice.
The hotel is one end of the beach , so it is quieter and the people from the cruise ships land at another part of the beach.
Other secluded beaches are nearby. Pimel island is a lot of fun.
The Coco beach restaurant needs improvements. We tried other restaurant on Orient beach which were better, one called Bikini.
"Wonderful hotel close to the beach and fine dining"
This was a vacation for our 25th wedding anniversary - my wife and I wanted a very special time together and our expectations were far exceeded. The Alamanda was wonderful. The check in went very smooth. The breakfast in the morning was fresh and delicious. The staff was excellent. The room was very good - comfortable bed, clean, very nice size. The balcony was furnished and an excellent place to relax.
Fine dining was a 2 minute walk away. We ate at 2 of the restaurants - Cote Plages and Le P'tit Bistro. The food was excellent at both. The foie gras at Le P'tit Bistro was incredibly delicious!
The Orient Beach was also a minute walk away. The sand, surf, and water were the most beautiful we have ever seen. The time we spent on the beach together (about 6 hours each day) was awesome! The beach front had restaurants that served lunch and drinks all day. We ate lunch at Andy and Cheryl's. It was very good.
My wife got a pina colada at Kontiki - it was superb!
The atmosphere at the Orient Beach was completely relaxed and chill. People were cool and friendly. Totally hassle free!
The prices for beer, drinks, and food at the Orient Beach restaurants and bars were reasonable.
The vacation was like having the best of France and the Caribbean in one place - a paradise of sensual pleasures and an excellent way for a couple to celebrate their marriage!

Overall this was a very satisfying stay. The staff was friendly and the facilities were great. One or two small service glitches (50 minutes to wait for ice) didn't detract from a very nice experience. Our junior suite was virtually on the beach and was perfect for us. Room was large, spacious, bright and clean. The little kitchenette was a great part of the room and allowed us to have breakfast, snacks, drinks etc. in our room or the very nice patio.
Flamingo Beach Resort was absolutely perfect. All the staff and management went out of their way everyday to make sure that all of our needs were meet. We were greeted every moment with a smile, lots of energy and laughter. The hotel shuttle from property to property was very helpful too.
I would definitely recommend Flamingo Beach Resort to family and friends and I hope to be back next year to visit again.
