Comments
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.
