I spent one night in the Krystal Vallarta and the room smelled like a recently flooded crawlspace. Everything was kind of dirty. Checked into the flamingo, and was pleased to find friendlier staff, a better view, and a very clean room. WiFi was problematic, but hey, it's Mexico, at least they tried. I found that the marina offered better dining... More

I only stayed here 1 night as my final destination was Sayulita. That being said, I knew it was on the Marina - not the beach, so if you are a beach person, this is not the best choice. But I like the Marina area. it has been many years since I was in PV. I have always stayed in... More

Good location and price if you need a layover near the airport, but otherwise shouldn't be considered a destination. Poor wifi, noisy, smelly, and outdated. Bathroom facilities were not good. Marina view is always pretty though.

The marina area is our favorite for long walks. Flamingo's WiFi signal is strong, but its ISP is poor, so part of a morning walk includes the Starbucks out by the whale sculpture which marks the marina entrance. Explore more deeply: wander by Velas through the residential area by the golf course, around to Marina Plaza (a strip mall with... More

We've stayed at this hotel every winter for the last 11 years. This year, there were many positive changes at the Flamingo- beginning with a new general manager, Mr. Castro. He is visible (& approachable) as he inspects the property & staff daily to ensure they meet expectations. He is reachable to answer questions or address any concerns you may... More

For the price really ok place to stay for few nights. Ok clean room. Really not much to eat at the breakfast if your vegetarian. This area is just too boring for me. it feels like time has stopped and i miss my beach. But take a trip to see whales from next street Ecotours! I prefer romantic zone area... More

Front desk " Christopher " is a gem for this hotel. The hotel is well maintained, great landscaping and the pool very clean and has an elevator. Has a restaurant on the premises and mega yachts a few feet away, rooms with balconies look across garden area, pool and marina. Easy walking to lots of restaurants, small grocery shops and... More

We needed a hotel for one night close to the airport or Nuevo. This one is situated on the marina near the airport and we found it to be quaint with Mexican décor, clean (except for a stain on the loveseat) with a nice outdoor restaurant and pool area. It's pretty basic but has a nice Mexican feel and a... More
