The oldest resort on the Strip, Flamingo Las Vegas boasts a stellar location and is bursting with character. Founded by notorious mobster Benjamin ‘Bugsy’ Siegel in 1946, this retro resort features a massive 7200 square-metre casino, with slot machines, blackjack, crap tables, roulette and much, much more. Plenty of restaurants and bars will fuel your Vegas adventures, while two pools and a spa offer places to chill.
Established before its neighbours, Flamingo Las Vegas is centrally situated on the Strip, with the area’s best-known attractions having set up alongside. It’s opposite Caesars Palace and Bellagio – and its fountains, and is flanked by The LINQ Promenade, which offers restaurants, shops and the world’s second-tallest observation wheel, the High Roller. Paris Las Vegas is on the resort’s other side. The city’s monorail stops right outside Flamingo Las Vegas, so you can easily scale more of the Strip if you desire. Harry Reid International Airport is just over three miles away.
With architectural design reminiscent of 1930s art moderne style, bedecked with palm trees and pink neon lights, the Flamingo could easily belong in Miami or Havana. Flamingo pink is the theme throughout this resort, and you’ll see it everywhere from the walls to the floors, and into the rooms and suites. Accommodation varies in style, and some offer stunning views of the High Roller observation wheel, towering 550 feet above. Although GO and Fab rooms are functional and offer great value for money, they could benefit from a refresh as the decor is a little tired in places. If you're looking for added comfort, we recommend upgrading to the refurbished Flamingo rooms, providing a modern twist on the resort theme, with a mid-century touch, bright white bathrooms and artwork celebrating the property’s history.

The vast outdoor space covers a total of 15 acres, filled with gardens, winding streams and cascading waterfalls, adding a sense of serenity on the bustling Strip. There’s even a garden chapel, where you can commit to a loved one at a wedding ceremony, or you can buy a commemorative brick to be inscribed with a message of your choosing and laid into the pathways of the gardens. Please be aware that these gardens are also home to the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat, which houses exotic birds, turtles, fish, and of course, flamingos.
On the pool front, you’ll find the best of both worlds, with the Beach Club Pool providing family-friendly waterfalls, a lagoon and a water slide, and the GO Pool offering DJ tunes and cabanas for rental for those aged 21 and over.
In the evening, get the party started with international showbiz headliners providing plenty of entertainment. They are joined by the sultry X Burlesque dancers, who provide a more adult-orientated style of entertainment. The huge casino is home to 130 table games, including blackjack, poker, roulette and baccarat, over 1600 slot machines and a sportsbook.
Afterwards, revitalise party weary skin at the spa, where relaxing, customised massages and comforting facials are provided. If you’d rather work up a sweat, the fitness centre is packed with plenty of cardio and strength training equipment.
There are various restaurant options within the resort, including Flamingo Food Court, host to international outlets, from burgers and shakes at Johnny Rocket’s, to Pan-Asian dishes at Pan Asian Express. Mexican hot spot Carlos 'n Charlie's transforms from a family-friendly venue into a late-night party bar, serving everything from chimichangas to scorching secret habanero salsa. Three-storey Margaritaville serves Caribbean-inspired bites alongside its famous cocktails. Designed in collaboration with celebrated designer Jonathan Adler, Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse is hidden behind an inconspicuous faux bakery front.
When you’re lounging poolside, Beach Club Bar & Grill is on hand with snacks and chilled drinks, or indoors, Club Cappuccino offers hot drinks and snacks to fuel your day. Nook Express provides pastries, grab-and-go items, and a selection of drinks from early morning.
Kick-start your evening at The Count Room, a chic speakeasy-inspired bar with cocktails, small plates and sweet treats (for ages 21 and over). For vintage Vegas vibes, 24-hours a day, Bugsy’s Bar serves cocktails under neon lights, next to flat-screen TVs showing the biggest sports games. Under a ceiling of colourful birdcages, Bird Bar provides beer pong, an outdoor patio on the boulevard and plenty of drinks.
