Flamboyant Le Village
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
After reading other reviews, it's obvious that your experience will be determined by who you rent from. We rented a 2-bedroom unit on the third floor overlooking the lagoon side of the complex. The condo was impeccable for both its cleanliness and quiet location. No noisy motor bikes as others have mentioned, and security men patrol the grounds. The steps-away boulangerie/patisserie at the entrance of the complex swept us away. Every original intention for cooking breakfast IN flew out the window after visiting this awesome bakery option. The beach is good looking, but not a viable swimming option. The pool is perfectly maintained, and the on-site restaurant/bar is adequate. Drinks from the poolside bar are reasonably priced. Don't expect any concierge services from the resort's front desk as you will find that has been totally abandoned.There are many great restaurants within walking distance from this location. We ate at La Cignale (expensive), Mezza Luna (more Caribbean than Italian) and Ma Ti (the most creative compositions we experienced all week)—all of which are within walking distance from Flamboyant.
We have returned from a fabulous week at Le Flamboyant in St. Maarten. We had a great room on the second floor, very spacious. Absolutely LOVED the outdoor kitchen! Rooms are cleaned every third day, so twice a week, which is perfect. Fresh pool/beach towels every other day, friendly helpful staff, great location. Will definitely stay here again! Thanks for having us!!
We just got back from 1 week at Flamboyant. We rent a studio apt. on the lagoon side and have found the place nothing but great. We did go through the unit owner and not the property management. The location is convenient to Marigot. The pools are well maintained and monitored. The bar/restaurant with Joanne bartender and Lucerne chef cannot be beat. Andy in the office was helpful when we had a problem with rental car. Claude from Discount Car Rentals is right across the street from property, very accomodating and price is good. Bakery a short walk to get fresh baguettes and croissants every day....who cannot like this!!! Gas station right next door. Yes, I agree it's not the Ritz but for the money it is well worth the stay.
First and foremost this is not a Hotel in reality. It is a a collection of appartments that are mostly let out to permanent residents. The few appartments that are let out are intermingled with these permanent lets.The rooms are only serviced spasmodically, twice in the week we were there. The standard of maintenance is low, the toilet stack pipe in the first appartment we occupied was sealled with a plastic bag from the supermarket and black tape; the security lock for the sliding patio door was a length of wood inserted into the track.After 3 days we had to ask to be moved as 2 out of the 3 mornings there was insufficient water pressure to flush the toilet or take a shower. We were told that this was normal for St Martin and had to insist on being moved to a lower floor where we had no further problems, this took a one hour argument and a call to the travel company.There was only 1 restaurant, not 2 as advertised. The one that was open was only open Tuesday through Saturday (as was the Bar) and in reality was no more than a snack bar. The staff had the radio volume so high ear plugs would be advisable. The two pools were fine. Apart from this no facilities.The public areas are not well kept, dirty windows, doors off hinges etc.However the rooms are of good size and we found comfortable. Although positioned on the lagoon there is a good beach in easy walking distance along with a few decent restaurants. Plus Marigot is a short (€10) taxi ride away.Would we go again, probably not. Would this meet the standards expected by my friends in the USA, definately not. Basically 2 star establishement.
What was once a lovely Resort has turned into an sadly uncared for property. The rooms match the outside overall neglect. Total disregard from the Management, who seems to overlook even the minimum Security Rules; entry gates are out of service since ten month now !!!! How long can it take to repair or replace material ? This property is today a mixed privately owned + hotel room establishment, with owner paying high monthly property management fees. Where are these amounts flowing to ? There should be no excuse for the poor condition of the property. Tourists are getting rare, bad reviews understandable, but nothing seems to provoke the slightest efforts to host the small remaining clientele like it is supposed to ! Very sad when you know it would just take a few efforts to upgrade the property and make the Flamboyant shine again ! But…no illusions left, it looks like it is too late, the advice is to stay clear, other lovely places are around in Nettle Bay today who welcome the clientele with elegance and care.
