The husband and I spent four nights in the Mangle Bungalow in early December. This hotel is not close to the main town square area, which offers plenty of peace and tranquility. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. The hotel staff were always courteous and friendly. We were able to use bikes and standup paddle boards at no charge and the breakfast spread was always delicious. Our room was comfortable, clean and relaxing. The decor and ambiance is meant to evoke natural surroundings. So, if you can't live without a strong wifi connection or need a multi shower head system, this is probably not the place for you. If you are looking to unplug your devices and enjoy some peace for a bit, Villas Flamingos is perfect!

Loved staying at Villas Flamingos. A peaceful hotel, right on the beach, with lots of space between the sunbeds. No annoying sounds from the golf cars running up and down the rest of the beach.
The rooms are simple but beautiful and perfectly clean, the breakfast buffet is small but good. Staff are discreet, friendly and service minded. You get a few complimentery water bottles every day.
You can borrow (but not book) bicycles and SUP-boards for free.
It's a 20-25 min walk to central Holbox (or 50pesos for a taxi), but you walk along the beach which is especially romantic at night in the moonlight.

The restaurant has ok food, and if you want to eat somewhere else, just pick any restaurant or beach bar next to the hotel.

Staying here for 5 nights to kick off our stay in Holbox, this was a little slice of heaven.

It is a long way out of the way but that only adds to the tranquillity. the private beach means no one randomly walking through the resort.

The Villas are amazing and the views from the Hot tubs are amazing. the beds are firm but as are the pillows but they are not the worst night sleep you'll have.

The showers and taps are odd. the outdoor shower was much better than the inside shower as it was more than a trickle.

the bar staff were attentive and the drinks were tasty and well priced. £5 for a Pina Colada hit the spot.
The breakfasts were basic but more than enough to kickstart the day but the evening menu was fantastic.
The Romantic couple's meal during the sunset was the perfect and worth every penny.

This place has bikes you can use to get into town and back for which is a 5-minute ride
Paddle boards are also available to make the most of the amazing water.

The staff were great. the new front of house lady organised everything we wanted including whale shark swimming and added it the hotel cost which was very easy.

It wasn't cheap but on the whole, but it was worth what we paid.

definitely a 4 . 5 star experience

We are a family who have just spent 4 nights here. When we arrived at the hotel we were all very disappointed as all we could smell was the horrible seaweed (think rotten prawns!!). About ten men were clearing the seaweed and creating a mountain of it right outside our room. Even inside our room we could not escape the smell and would definitely not be able to use our outside terrace because of it.

After our first day here and having to walk to a beach club further away (15 mins), we asked to be moved to another room away from the smell. Luckily we were offered room 23 which was lovely and had two outside areas, so we could choose where we wanted to be.

Even after 4 days, there was still a big team of men clearing the seaweed. This hotel is NOT CHEAP. So why not invest in a machine or a permanent barrier to help with the obvious seaweed problem?!!

Honestly, think very carefully before coming here. The only reason we stayed is because we were upgraded and that we could escape during the day to various beach clubs further away where there wasn’t such a putrid smell!

Food pretty average. Staff hardly smile. If we came to Holbox again, we would choose to be somewhere further back from the beach.

I do hope this hotel can start to manage this huge problem with more success.

The hotel location is away from main area which we loved. Rooms are beautiful, pools amazing. We stayed here 3 nights in November and we were really glad we booked another hotel after that.
As previous reviewer mentioned, there were seaweed and this was the only hotel who didn’t take good care of it.
Smell is unbearable. Staff are not very friendly especially management who sits in the lobby.
Food is really mediocre as well. And they demand tip for free breakfast.

We stayed las Tortugas after here and it was so much better overall. Staff super friendly, lovely rooms , food amazing and they take excellent care of seaweed. There was one day we saw massive wave of seaweed and next morning it was all gone.

Unless they implement new process to take care of seaweed I don’t recommend staying at villas flamingo.

The hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained. Its about a 20 minute walk from downtown Holbox, but the seclusion made it very relaxing. However, the service at Villas Flamingos was extremely lacking and every small request seemed like an inconvenience to the staff. On our first day we were told we couldn’t take a drink to go and sit in a beach chair by the water…they wanted us to sit at the very sterile restaurant (the beach bar is only open if it’s sunny apparently). Breakfast each morning was inconsistent and average. Some days we got bread and juice, and other days they didn’t even bring us a menu. When it came time to checkout, we were literally kicked out of our room 10 minutes early. I thought the staff had arrived to help carry our bags, but they were actually there with cleaning supplies. I say all of this because we spent our first two days in Holbox at another hotel (Hotel La Palapa) for half the price and the service was outstanding, and the food and drinks were some of the best. Villas Flamingos has great potential but not until they reevaluate their staff and loosen up a little. Consider spending your money elsewhere on the island.

Villas Flamingos was recommended to us by a young Mexican couple and it did not disappoint. From the minute our feet hit the sandy floor in their warm and cozy lobby and downed their refreshing welcome drink, we wanted to stay forever. A stunning beach of calm refreshing, crystal turquoise water with diving pelicans greet you every morning. The staff and service impeccable. Reception (Fabian and co) is helpful, patient, generous with time and kind. Chef Santiago turns an exceptional ceviche but is also capable with a pasta and home made chicken soup when stomachs go under. Andreas, the kind restaurant manager attended to us meticulously, making sure every need was attended to. Beautiful interior and, comfortable furnishings surround.
An artistic bath with a wood beam spewing your shower!!! The highlight was meeting wonderful international gues and witnessing a lovely wedding on the beach! We enjoyed diverse activities-kayaking, swimming, horseback riding, reading, walks on the beach. As frequent travelers who never return to the same place, we are breaking the rule. Thank you, Villas Flamingos for the most amazing, relaxing vacation. We love all of you and can't wait to see you next year! If you want to be treated like family, this magical place will grab you and not let you go. Any negative reviews say more about the writer than the place and its staff.

A perfect vacation paradise! The rooms all have beautiful water views, most with sunset views. The restaurant is terrific, the bar is fantastic, and the entire hotel staff is amazing. They could not possibly be more accommodating.
The hotel is walking distance to town center but if wanting to go by taxi it’s only $7.50 U.S. each way.
Can’t wait to return!

Located at the end of the hotel zone and pretty much where the beach ends, Villas Flamingo is a good option for a stay on the island. The service is the strength of this hotel. The rooms though in the Holbox style are not up to expected standard and have no tecnology. The rooms have little to know wifi, TV or cell connection, which I do understand may be fantastic for some, but found a dozen people in the check in area getting wifi in the morning.

great place to relax and enjoy the fantastic water around Holbox.

Holbox is a great spot for a different experience. This Hotel was recommended to us and we could see why as the location is really excellent. It is almost the furthest from town, making it lovely and quiet, away from the road and noisy taxis! it also meant we did not suffer from the piles of seaweed along the beach in front of some of the other highly rated hotels.

The food in the restaurant was truly excellent with a really wide range especially at breakfast and lunch. With breakfast included, those people who enjoy a late breakfast and skip lunch will love this.

We did not bother visiting the small centre of Holbox. we drove through it on the way and it did not seem worthy of a trip back.

One small warning about Holbox. It is advertised as being vehicle or car free. This is really nonsense. Whilst it is fun to see that all of the roads are simply sand, there is continuous traffic of the open air taxis and motorbikes. If your hotel room is next to the road, you can expect to hear this all the time unless you are at the far end of town as we were.
