My husband ad I spent 3 nights in Hotel Los Flamingos in late March, 2013. Los Flamingos is an old, traditional, established hotel that was the playground of the Hollywood stars such a Johhny Weismuller, Errol Flynn, John Wayne and many others. It is located on a cliff with a beautiful view of the Pacific ocean.
The staff of Los flamingos is extremely courteous and helpful - I would give them a definite rating of 10. They were the best of the hotel. Second best was the large kidney shaped swimming pool which is well maintained.
The rooms, however, leave something to be desired. We stayed in a "superior" room. It was relatively clean, however we did find some spiders and a baby scorpion. These things were easily taken care of and might be fairly common in the tropical environment of this hotel which is surrounded buy lush gardens. The beds were very firm, something which we like, but might not be high on everyone's list of desirability in beds.
The biggest problem we found was the extremely low water pressure in the shower. I asked the staff to check this out and they even changed the shower head, but the problem wasn't solved. I'm imagining that since this hotel is quite old, possibly the water pipes are blocked by mineral deposits and this is what causes the problem of the low pressure. It was quite difficult to wash my medium length hair. I can deal with spiders but I like a strong or at least reasonable shower.
This hotel would be spectacular if it could solved the water problem and have a bit more maintenance to it's facilities.
