On the shores of the Pacific Ocean, pretty little boats are anchored in one of the bays of the small, peaceful village of Flamingo. The beaches here are so beautiful, a number of holiday homes have been built by the rich and famous from around the world.This is the setting of the Flamingo Beach, a small hotel that is secluded in spite of its location in the village. The hotel opened in 1983 and was renovated in 2007, and is a simple, square, symmetrical building on the sea front. Once you are through reception, the blue sea can be seen a few feet away. Between the two, and in line with the reception, an external stairway leads down to a large swimming pool with a section for children. It is surrounded by wooden deck chairs, and four enormous sunshades shaped like palm trees. Then there is the lawn, and the restaurant space to one side. Small walls mark the edge of the property. Do not forget the second little swimming pool that is dedicated to activities and, inside, the casino that opens from 8.00 pm to 3.00 am.
