“Lovely place in Cancun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Comfy hotel directly on the beach, it is a nice small hotel, we found it as an advantage, beacuase the beach was not overcrowded and we had no problem to get a sun umbrella and chair. Accross the road there is Flamingo mall, where you can buy souvenirs, short walk away from the hotel there is La Isla Shopping mall and Cancun Sea Aquarium.
Hotel staff was very helpful, they appreciate when you speak Spanish, though "un pocito" :)
I would recommned to take a lunch/dinner in Albatros bar and try burritos or fajitas, it was very tasty. All inclusive program was ok, food was average, nothing special, we enjoyed the sea view from "La Fuente" restaurant when having breakfast, it was gorgeous.
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and we love Cancun! The beach there is absolutely amazing.

The room is a bit dated. Location is really great and view of the beach for the sunrise was nice. Pool area was in the middle of the hotel and was relaxing. Lots of kids and the crowd tended to be people other than Americans. The price was cheap so I assume the Americans choose the more up market places.

DO NOT use the ATM in the lobby. It charges USD$30 to withdraw cash and is a complete rip off. I'm used to paying $5 or so and just pressed the accept fee button and got the nasty surprise on my receipt. The staff were very apologetic and they recommend people use one across the street. Management really need to do something about this!!! Yes the bank charges the fee but you have accepted that it's in your hotel. Fix this or properly sign post it. I'd rather give your nice staff a tip than pay the bank.

Other than that the resort was fine for the one night we stayed (passing though). It's a little dated but was cheap in comparison. You get what you paid for

I am delighted I chose this property for my trip. I traveled from Dec 14 to Dec 19. I had a wonderful experience. The service is really good, the staff are very friendly. Few tips - don't go for the all inclusive package. Just go with only breakfast. There is whole lot to eat in the neighborhood or in downtown (take route 1 or route 2 = Per trip 9 peso in the bus which is less than a dollar). Next to Flamingo itself there is whole lot to do. Go to Flamingo Plaza or two blocks away is the La Isla Plaza. If you are booking your rooms with Ocean view, one tip - ask for rooms in the higher floor.

Room Tip: Ask if you can get rooms facing the ocean, you need to push them to get it at no extra cost.

well a shorter trip this time only ten days, but it seemed much longer, no stress vacation, the resort staff made us once again feel like royalty. We are repeat visitors and were greeted by a nice upgrade as they promised and had all our needs quickly handled.

Room Tip: We like the main floor junior suits but quite frankly if you like ocean view most of these rooms fit...

My room was dirty and the photos were not what the room actually looked like. My experience with the staff was somewhat unpleasant. The location was pretty good though. Maybe it was the season I went to Cancun, but the price was way too high for what it was.

I booked the Hotel Flamingo through Groupon Getaways and had a good experience. This was my first time to Cancun and I was looking for a place that was safe, had a good location, was on the beach, and had amenities such as pool and hot tub. I found the Flamingo satisfied all of those needs.

The Flamingo uses traditional, Spanish inspired architecture - many of the corridors are open air and the building itself is only 6 stories. The building is painted white and is wider than it is tall. This is in contrast to some of the more "Americanized" resorts that are towers with large windows and balconies.

Because of the very low price I paid, I didn't expect to get an ocean view. If that were important to me, upgrading to an ocean view would only have cost an additional $35/night. Rooms are very basic - which is a good thing when you're looking to minimize the cost you spend in a hotel - you should be out in Cancun, not sitting in a hotel :). My room had all tile floor, a simple chest of drawers, a 32" flat screen TV with basic cable offerings, night stand, floor lamp, two chair and a small table. When you first enter the room, there is a small hallway with a closet on the right and the bathroom on the left.

Facilities were kept clean. I always saw maintenance workers trimming plants, paiting, mopping, etc. to ensure hallways and common areas were clean.

I would not recommend the all inclusive option for your entire stay. There are too many excellent dining choices near the hotel. The money you save from not doing all inclusive can be applied to meals at any of the outside dining establishments. I would recommend doing the all-inclusive for the last two or three days of your stay. The hotel has a buffet and a sit-down restaurant. I personally only used the buffet during my stay, but the food was always hot and the variety was good. Both times I went, I experienced excellent service from an attentive staff. Prices were reasonable $15 for dinner, $10 for breakfast.

Finally, I would recommend looking at Llomas Travel - they are right inside the hotel. I booked three tours with them for under $300 - a speed boat / atv outing, snorkeling with lobster dinner, and Mayan Ruins. The Llomas Travel personnel provide transportation, snacks, and light refreshments. I found them to be very informative and flexible with tour dates, etc.

Room Tip: I had a room that faced the street (because I booked through Groupon and paid ~$70/night. This didn...
