I have lived in The Flamingo for 6 months now and my experience has been pretty solid. I dont bother anyone and no one bothers me. When I need help, after a few pleases and being generous the people help. A few minor obstacles with security but when I called the property manager Luisa she fixed it for me. As far as hidden fees, I have not experience that at all. I will say this, I think the Flamingo North Tower needs to be cleaned more. I had to call a couple times to report dog feces and trash left in the elevators. I enjoy my apartment and neighbors, I did get a notice for loud music but that now that is not a issue anymore. Overall, I would recommend The Flamingo to everyone. The prices are expensive but if any thing breaks in my apartment I contact Jaime and its fixed within a week so to me its a benefit.

GO TO SOUTH GATE\ GO TO DECO PLAGE\ GO TO GEORGIAN\ GO TO MIRADOR\ DON'T DEAL WITH THIS PEOPLE IF YOU LIKE YOUR PIECE OF MIND AND MONEY.
I left the North Tower. They will NOT return your deposit, regardless of how you leave the unit. The carpet, they will charge you FULL replacement no matter what, so do not keep it new or clean it, do not waste your time. Get use to deal with roaches everyday, they say they exterminate, roaches crawl everywhere all the time. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THEY GET AWAY WITH THE HEALTH CODE. They over charge for everything, the parking is the most expensive in South Beach at $162 + tax for cars, and $25 a month for a scooter!!, even though the parking space is empty. Miami Beach Parking does not offer parking since they provide it. The units are very very old, the washer/dryer useless, and add all sorts of fees to the monthly rent to end up paying for a 1/1 close to $1900. You will not sleep due to your neighbors noises and super thin walls. Really, I am puzzle how this place still exists. Management is clueless, AIMCO does not give a s#!t at all!!... You will be another sucker lured by the pool and the supposed location.
I'm leaving this terrible place (North Tower). People are doing sublease business, "guest" shuffle in and out, they party after midnight. And worst, management office keep their eyes closed and do not respond to residents' complains!! I would definitely not recommend this place to any friends! NO NO NO! I wish there is a zero star for this rating!
zero stars should be, bunch of thieves, overrated, everything is falling apart, i left on Monday after 3 leases there, horrible experience, and they sent me unreal fake bill, once already i deal with them and my attorney help me out, after all sent them proves in pdf and other doc that they are giving me fake bills, and overcharged me. when we decided to move out , we signed yellow paper (notice of intent vacant), my brother Vladimir and me, and cleaning fee was $70 , signed by your management title RRM and my brother and me, if the case that cleaning was $200 or $250 we will not sign and discuss about that,they charged me for broil pan?!?! i never saw that in my life until i use google, and i can guess that is for owen/stove,and i ask other peole who movedout about that and answer was that they never had that and was not charged, so it was only me, then charge for about drip pans, please see attachment and proof that drip pans was changed,i sent them on email prove from their maintenace that was changed so if they changed again something new and already changed i dont want to pay.bout carper change ,got prove about repair not just one about big time problem with AC leak, and when i got back home from work i had a swimming pool between my closet because AC was leaking , i am at work 8 hrs, and and was destrying my dresses, shirts, and i left many towels down to remove that swimming pool on the carpet, and i reported and maintenance came next day, and what i find out that i share AC with apartment next door, and damaged carpet i reported right away and asked for remove and you said that will be ok when i move, after all i have numerous recorded phone calls and conevrsation with your management office and i can use that against you, after all that carpet was not damaged by me by AC and your poor maintenance, and if I have to pay for carpet change then i will charge you for damaged dresses and shirts and towels and as well send those proves.by contract was 3 of us, and you gave us ONLY 2 keys, 3rd apt key i made at the building, 1st floor next to entrance of central tower, your maintanace made me a key because noone else can make copy (of course) and charge me $40,n the Notice of intent to vacate said that after 1st inspeciton which was scheduled (pre move out inspection) on 21st August, said that inspection will leave some not about damages , i didnt received ANYTHING. worst building ever.
