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
25th Anniversary! Who knew 25 years ago we would be coming back to celebrate again! Ready for the next 25 years!
Will always use the Flamingo for our stays in Vegas, central and fun all in one place! WHAT A DEAL!!
Nicely updated Vegas mainstay. Located in the heart of everything this hotel is more intimate than the larger sprawling properties in the same area. The rooms have been nicely updated and check in can be done via a kiosk in the lobby and check out can be completed via an email link they send on your departure day. There are a number of moderately priced dining places as well as an upscale steak house on premises. Was not able to experience the pool area as it was snowing in Vegas during our visit. Be sure and see the namesake flamingos. Another nice feature is that is located along the monorail route if a convention at the convention center brings you to town.
Great central location with a monorail station and close bus stop. Room was on the strip and clean and comfortable. Except for the pillows..those were cheap foam. Booked a couples massage at the spa that ended up being cancelled by the spa which was disappointing. But after seeing the spa am kind of glad. It didn’t look great. Casino is super smoky. Dinner buffet only on the weekends. Thought was told at the front desk the internet was free but when we went to sign on it was $14.95 a day for only 2 devices. Then when we checked out we were shocked to learn there was also a $39.68 per day resort fee no one mentioned!
15 floor room nice beds and baths, casino is near great dinning and entertainment. Big pool for summer fun, elevators are quick. Casino floor has good variety of game options and good ventilation and friendly staff
We booked 2 rooms several months in advance and both reservations requested to be close to one another. When we arrived we had to wait in line an hour (the kiosks they have weren't working correctly.) When they gave us our rooms one was on the 14th floor and the other the 25th. They said they couldn't move us because they were preassigned before our arrival and they were "Sold Out" although neither one of us saw or heard very many ppl on our floors and you could go on the webiste and get a room. Also, even though we were on a non-smoking floor the one room smelled like marijuana the entire week.
