Comments There is not much good about the Divi Flamingo Beach Resort. Their website says that the rooms have been refurbished. Unfortunately, I came to understand that meant some (not all) of the furniture was new and the faucets in the bathroom were replaced. They showed us 3 different rooms and all were a nightmare. They never bothered to paint or removed the 1+ inch of caked on mold around the baseboards. When they opened the door to each room a swirl of "other peoples hair" came to rest on my shoes and lower legs. All three rooms had an overwhelming stench of mold and were absolutely filthy!!! There was no way on earth we could spend our vacation at this resort(?). The divi resort refunded most of our money but kept $300.00 because "we were the one's cancelling". This was extremely unfair and I am still angry about it. We moved over the Plaza Resort but had to pay "rack" rates because we did not book through a travel agent. The whole fiasco cost us about $800.00 in extra expenses and several hours of wasted time returning to the resort to try and get a refund. This is the first time I have ever written a negative report about any resort but this one is well deserved. Shame on you Divi Flamingo Beach Resort and Casino!
