Have some Florida with your Nevada at Flamingo Las Vegas, which brings beachy architecture, plenty of pink and – yes – a flock of preening flamingos (among other exotic birds) to Sin City. This Caesars Entertainment getaway will have you thinking you’re in SoBe, until you remember that few others have defined the Strip more than this one. Chalk that up to a fabulous array of first-class amenities, from a seasonal 15-acre pool to a 15,000-square-foot casino to a lineup of high-profile entertainers (the current headliners are Donny and Marie Osmond).
The restaurants total eight, including a Margaritaville; a food court; a steakhouse; and waterfall-view Paradise Garden Buffet, open Friday and Saturday nights. There are three bars; a bounty of shops, where you can pick up a flamingo-pink boa, a bachelor or bachelorette gift or a Marie Osmond doll (naturally); and a burlesque “university” to accompany the nightly X Burlesque show. In the preening mood yourself? Spring for a body or beauty treatment at the spa and full-service salon, with a eucalyptus steam room, three whirlpool tubs and a menu of indulgent therapies and services.
You’ll get the same amount of bold, feminine style as throughout the rest of the hotel in your room, featuring pops of the signature Flamingo pink. Vintage Vegas artwork and patterned rugs complete the picture, as do chic lighting fixtures. GO rooms are more modern and designed for the tech-savvy traveler; upgrade to one of these for electronic window treatments, a larger TV, a separate TV in one of your mirrors, a frosted-glass door and walls in your bathroom and a refrigerator.

If you like piña coladas… you’ll be happy to know about Flamingo’s outpost of Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, set next to the Margaritaville-inspired casino. It spans multiple levels and serves all the signature tropical cuisine and cocktails that you’ve come to expect from the chain, also including the famed Cheeseburger in Paradise. There are seven other full-service eateries at the resort, such as Paradise Garden Buffet, which opens Friday and Saturday nights and overlooks the waterfalls, and a food court that has a Johnny Rocket’s location. Two bars mix up tequila drinks and other beachy sips for your Caribbean-meets-Floridian-meets-Vegan vacation, while a third specializes in martinis.
Following a recent remodeling, the spa is looking better than ever – and so will you, after a couple of hours sipping tea and hanging in its three whirlpool tubs, eucalyptus steam room, sauna or treatment rooms. If you take the treatment route, you can pick from a long menu of massages, facials and other experiences; the Brown Sugar Body Polish is a favorite. Relocate to the full-service salon for a beauty service, or to the well-stocked fitness center for a training session.
The oldest continuously operating resort on the Strip is also so jam-packed with things to do that you may not even get out and explore the Strip. If you’re feeling lucky, 15,000-square-foot Margaritaville Casino offers 22 gaming tables, 220 slot machines and a $200,000 jackpot. Once you win big, the shops are the perfect place to celebrate, with jewelry, stylish apparel, candy, liquor, bachelor and bachelorette gifts and Marie Osmond dolls on hand to help you spend just as big. Of the two pools, one opens seasonally and the other, open year-round, hosts DJ sets and comprises much of the 15-acre pool-deck area. Another must is the Wildlife Habitat, home to hummingbirds; pelicans; swans; ducks; and, of course, flamingos.
How to Get There
We could not have been happier at the Flamingo, unless we won more money gambling. We arrived from the airport hours early, and the hotel check-in staff treated us like royalty. We announced that our main objective for being in Las Vegas was to get married, and they waived the early check-in fees for us. They also immediately upgraded our room, free of charge, from a 3rd floor room overlooking the "courtyard", to the 27th floor overlooking the fountains at Bellagio. The bathroom had a stand-up shower and a tub, and a TV screen embedded in the mirror. The king bed was EXTREMELY comfortable, and the room was very spacious. We had no problems with temperature control or housekeeping, and the room was quiet at all hours. We ended up getting married at the waterfall near the Garden Chapel, and Pam helped everything go smoothly with less than 24 hours notice. Since my wife had never been to Las Vegas, having a 24-hour coffee store just off the lobby was very convenient, and I watched the sunrise on wedding day from the patio next to the coffee store. When we go back to Las Vegas, you can bet that we will return to the Flamingo.
First time staying here and will be the last. Needs a good vacuum, the corridors are filthy along with our room. On arrival yesterday there were long blank strains of hair all over the bathroom floor, sink and shower and are still there today after it was cleaned! Been approached twice to buy cochcaine today, once by the pool and the 2nd time in the gambling room. Definitely won't be back. Leaving Sunday and counting the days!
Weve stayed here 4 times over the years and I'm thinking this will definitely be our last. We arrive around 9pm on Sunday, try to check in at the kiosk and it doesn't work. I'm told I have to go to the desk & wait in a THIRTY MINUTE line?? Are you kidding me! After I booked this room months ago and already checked in online
!! Furious! An associate asked me if everything was ok I advised NO, they ended up upgrading us to a run down Neapolitan suite, broken toilet, broken curtains, broken closet door. There was no way I was standing in line again to complain about these issues. They tried to make it right, but I booked a NEW executive room that shouldn't have been given away! The pool used to be the best on the strip! Now they have totally RUINED it trying to be a "day club", nasty security, long lines to get in, the pool is open to the public!, insanely priced drinks & dont even think about going to your room if it's on the pool side ! The music is so loud you cant think. Next time we're staying off strip or somewhere else, sorry Flamingo
We booked a Neapolitan Suite for four nights beginning July 13th. Arrived on the 13th and was given 18107 as our suite. Arrived at approximately 2:00pm to the suite and the living room was pretty cool but the bedroom was HOT. On top of that the toilet was broken and the drapes in the bedroom were broken (Thank goodness I travel with giant binder clips!). Called guest services and gave the rundown of issues. Great apology given. No one from engineering arrived so call first services again and asked for another room/suite. Was told I need to visit front desk. Being a Platinum Rewards member we went to the Platinum/Diamond desk. Related issues to “Tina Marie” and was told no rooms available and walked away from us! She was far colder than 18107 ever got during our stay! Then “our concierge” Ivy contacted us about our experience so far. She got an earful and our toilet was fixed - but drapes not repaired until Monday and we just gave up on the air in the bedroom. That was our first and last conversation with “Ivy” until she told us how to checkout on Wednesday. The first night we went down to the casino and it was HOT! The dealers and put bosses all sweating. Apparently the A/C for that section of the hotel had been out since Thursday - apparently this was the section our suite was in as well. I cannot believe that 1) we weren’t made aware of the A/C issue at checkin 2) no one seemed concerned about the guests not having A/C in their suites and 3) the nicest staff were the housekeeping team! So, apparently it means ZERO to the Caesars organization that Platinum members exist. We’ll be shredding out Total Rewards Visa and Platinum cards when we get home! M-Life here we come!
Room nice, clean food was Ok but kinda low for vegas, . Pool closes way to early 6pm close time at a pool in vegas (really)??? , Parking is not free for guests and should be, stay away from the Whyndam tireshare employees-- I bet i was asked 20 times to go to there presentation for timeshare.
