“Very Nice view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

I really enjoyed having a drink at that hotel and the Nice sun coming down. Old like all comments but i loved the nature. The staff were wonderful. You could take a Nice Walk and enjoy the view. Not too far from la Caletta, busy spot in Acapulco.

Well I returned again this year and stayed for 2 months. Need I say more? I love this place. Everyone who works at this hotel is sooooo nice. The guests are also so,pleasant. The hotel is old, but it has so much charm and character, it cannot be surpassed. I'm looking forward to next year when I can return to my home away from home, hotel los flamingos.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

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.

The prior review by RFNJ explains this property best.

As someone who is not a hotel guest but a frequent visitor this is a must visit property especially if you are into all of it's Hollywood history.

Located in the Old\Traditional section of Acapulco Los Flamingos boasts incredible views out at the Pacific.

We were fortunate to catch Whales breaching the surface for about 30 minutes on their scenic patio.

We had 3-4 drinks while on their patio Cervesa's are 25 peso Margaritas 65 each and are very good.

Go close to sunset like all the travel tips tell you it is worth some down and relaxing time.

I have been a frequent guest at Hotel Los Flamingos, having eschewed the big modern hotel offerings on the strip in favor of great views, service and ambiance.
The hotel is an old hotel - there are no flat-screen TVs, and only some of the property has wifi access.
It is set off the strip in the old section of Acapulco, but getting downtown is never a problem. And what it lacks in modern convenience, it more than makes up for in charm, style and service. I have never met anyone there who did not pass me with a warm smile and greeting. They respond very quickly to requests, know the city and are very helpful.
And as mentioned over and over, the vista is incredible, and sunset cocktails in the restaurant become the highlight of many a trip.

I have been to this hotel several times, first time was around 2001, 2002. And have returned almost every year after that. Maybe it is because of it's amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, or it's tranquility under the palms and next to the pool. I have had the best chats over Coco Locos. And the most romantic time in its suite 16, under the restaurant. Not to mention the best service Mexico and Acapulco can offer.
If you're a fan of Mexican cuisine make sure to visit on thrusday, when they do the most delicious Pozole.
If you're a film buff this place is a Gem for you!!

We stayed in Los Flamingos for 2 nights in August with a couple of friends and their kids. The reputation of this hotel and it's Hollywood beginnings were what tempted us and so we'd reserved the RoundHouse (Casa Tarzan) which accomodated all 6 of us. Isolated at the far end of the cliff-tops on which the hotel is built, there's even a private little path leads down to a spectacular and private viewpoint of the best sunset in Acapulco!

There were other guests at the hotel, but the swimming pool next to the Casa Tarzan was always deserted, which made it feel like it was our private resort!

The hotel up-keep feels slightly neglected - there's no need for air con in the roundhouse as there are simply anti-mosquito screens that soften the cooling sea breeze! The owner is clearly against modernising probably for fear of forgetting the past glory!

But you don't come here for an air-conditioned, simple room. You choose Los Flamingos for other reasons! And, after reading the newspaper articles and admiring the photos on some of the walls, you head to the bar for a Coco Loco, half expecting John Wayne, Cary Grant and Johnny W to be propping up the bar waiting for you!
