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
Pro:: Room was on the top floor with a great view of the strip.
Con: Room vents were dusty and full of lint, baseboards and tiles in bathroom dirty and moldy, shower pressure not good. Garden Paradise Buffet simply terrible, pricey not good value and food very disappointing. Not a family friendly hotel whatsoever. Family pool not easily accessible and area small, dirty and very congested,and it sucks as it.closes at 5 pm. Resort fee atrocious at $40/day which allows for connecting 2 devices only and does not include parking which is an additional $12/day. Parking garage was full both days on weekend and we had to park at Paris instead. How does Flamingo Hotel justify charging the same resort fee as Paris and Caesars Palace. We visit Las Vegas several times a year and we have stayed at almost all of the other Caesars properties this was our first time at Flamingo and never again.
In the heart of Las Vegas, of course there is plenty to do around the Flamingo hotel! I was here all weekend, however for the Flight Sim Expo 2018. Check - in was supposed to be quick with self check - in/out machines but for some reason I still had to go through the line anyways. I wish when I had booked my room that they let me know ahead of time that they were putting me in a tower that was constantly noisy from being under construction, I opted for a smoking room as I am a social smoker but you could REALLY smell the smoke upon first walking in. My view was nothing but the roof of another building and the construction crew, not a big deal as I did not opt for a room with a view, a few of my friends had GORGEOUS views of the city. I visited a few other friend's smoking rooms and even though they had already smoked in them, I guess the newer towers must have better ventilation, as it still smelled fresh. I'm not the only one who had constant wi-fi issues, always randomly making you sign in again. Very annoying for virtual/webcam conference meetings on top of the construction noise going on right outside. Though when the wi-fi WAS working, it was very quick. The botanical gardens/wildlife areas were a nice touch. I went to visit the GoPool and my friends advised me to bring my room key & that I would be charged $10, I also read many reviews that said you may or may not need your room key and to pay to get in. All they did was i.d. me to be at the GoPool but for some reason, not even mere hours prior, my friends had to show room keys and even got CHARGED $10 to enter. The GoPool closes at 6, WAYYYY too early, especially for as beautiful as it is and how many people were always still there around closing time, they do charge extra for cabana, I did not participate in that. Plenty of casinos, shopping and overly expensive food/drinks. I'd definitely go anywhere outside of the hotel for food/drinks at reasonable prices for the same exact or even better meals. Being able to use your room key and even the automatic license plate reader for parking was convenient. There was supposedly a $100 deposit fee that they still have not returned to me a week later, I also opted out of room service to receive a $10 'coupon' good for some food/drinks inside Flamingo, yet when I used it, they still charged me $10 anyways for the meal. I should have opted for room service, as the floor made my feet black with dirt not even 2 minutes walking around on it and I cleaned it myself just to make sure it would be CLEAN at all. Charges I will now have to dispute. As far as I can tell they also overcharged my bank account compared to the receipt they gave me upon check out as well. Without most of these issues, it COULD be a 5 star review, I feel it has the potential but unfortunately I had to just give it 3. Definitely just taking a lot of advantage of their constantly busy location.
Had a good time at Flamingo and Elmer Lakindanum was a really nice man who works for Flamingo and was very helpful.
A Big problem was Uno Salon at the Flamingo two of us made an appointment for wash and blow dry for the next day. I went in said my name and said for wash and blow dry the lady said come in here and we went into a room and she said lie on the bed. I thought what's happening but thought this must be something they do here. She started rubbing my face and told me my skin was dry and she started putting something on my face she then said I've taken your makeup off so I will have to put it back on and that this would cost me with hair done $380 I was so shocked I didn't say anything and when we went out she said it's a 20% tip so total was $450 US and over $620 Australian and I was in there for just one hour. I had booked for Saturday but went down the next day and cancelled it and when I told the girl at reception she was shocked as well. I am 73 years of age and was not aware of what was happening because it was not explained to me at all until she said what it was going to cost me. This still upsets me and next time if there is a next time I will be very aware of things now and I will walk out. I have to also say that the Flamingo was good and it's not their fault that there are people out there who are greedy.
This is the first hotel on the strip but everything is up-to-date and renovated.
The location on the strip is perfect and near other great hotels.
The self check-in and out can make you avoid the crowd at the front desk and get to your room in 5 minutes.
The Flamingo resort was very pretty and clean. It's location was perfect! The only reason why I didn't give it a 5 star is because the room hallway smelled like marijuana. Yet, my non-smoking room was free of the smell.
