if you can tolerate the mice and errant birds in your room, this might be
an interesting place for a weekend visit.  if you're "traveled"
and have in excess of 200 logged dives, you'll find that visiting any
longer than that will render you bored.  the shops and work out facility
seem to be open only while you are out diving and the casino opens at bed
time.  Divi Flamingo boasts sameness Caribbean diving, an unvaried
restaurant menu of unmemorable offerings where even the
"Specials" didn't seem to change and boats crewed by dive masters
who provided little more than transport to the dive sites.  the
gregariously oppressive resort manager is actually a tactless bore whose
single topic repertoire, from arrival to departure, was an incessant pitch
that you return. 
the single attraction of the resort would have to be it's close proximity
to town and easy access to the pleasant change of friendly, smiling faces
of the townsfolk.  the highlight at the resort proper seemed to be a toss
up between the plus's that our air conditioner worked and the toilets
flushed but i can't speak for everyone in our group.
