“Interesting - great view”
Review of Los Flamingos

Los Flamingos
Ranked #82 of 376 Restaurants in Acapulco
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 23, 2010

John Wayne and Johnnie Wisemuller used to own this restaurant - a place visited by many old Hollywood stars years ago. Old pictures around the outside of the building gave it character and the view from atop the cliff was awesome. But the place was a bit run down. The bathroom was pretty poor.
The food was ok, the service very good. The coconut drink (coco loco) was good and cute with a flamingo of fruit decorating the coconut for $12. The site and history are interesting but overall not a great value.

The hotel is situated on a cliff offering incredible views of sea, sky, birds & vibrant vegetation. The ambiance is old hollywood and glamorous. I wanted very much to like the place but the overall filth-- rusty broken curtain rod, cob webs, scorpion, lizard feces in sink, ant colonies around windows-- was in the end impossible to ignore. The prices of the rooms are reasonable (as they should be given above) but the food and drinks are remarkably expensive and at barely mediocre. The hotel restaraunt charges extra for every little thing--milk for coffee, ice, etc... To top it all of the service is inattentive and surly.

This is a great place that not many people know about as it is in the old section of Aca. It is high on a hill and the view of the sunset is great. Johnny Weismiller and John Wayne dined here many years ago.
