my husband,David, daughter Alexis and son Nick stayed at Hotel Flamingo from feb 20th to Feb26th 2013. Adrian the hotel manager was what one could only call the wikipedia of Cozumel. Any question you might have, he was the person to ask. I wanted fresh coconuts and he hopped onto his bicycle and bought me some. He introduced us to Sergio Sandoval, a divemaster who dove multiple times with Jacques Costeau. although since I have a pacemaker, I could not dive, my family did and Sergio held my daughter's hand to give her confidence. We went to Sergio's home so that my family could have dive lessons and I sat by the pool, with his wife Lolita eating fresh pineapple. Adrian set this up for us and was absolutely fantastic. There was nothing you wanted to do, or eat or see, that he could not give you guidance, advice and help with. Adrian, if you are reading this you are one in a million. The bartender, Ivan, became a friend for the week. He created mexican cocktails from scratch, fresh juice squeezed daily. He played music, joked and gave suggestions on things to do and places to see. 5pm on became our social time. freshly made guacamole and chips from the little restaurant, Abelardo's across the street. really worked on my tolerance of hotter and hotter sauces. Ivan almost got me with the freshly made habanero sauce. Ivan. The proud daddy of Teotl, was delightful in his love for his newborn son. I would recommend to anyone that wants a mexican getaway, Hotel Flamingo is the place to go. A little out of the way, you need to take a ferry ride from Playa del Carmen, this hotel is a little piece of heaven. The streets were safe. restaurants close by and the staff definitely made you feel special. A big thankyou to Adrian(pronounced Ahdreeann), Ivan(pronounced eevonn) everyone there was great and made my family's first trip to Cozumel memorable. Finally, Ivan, thank you for being so gracious in macheteing my fresh coconuts for me.
