We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Flamingo. The room was comfortable. We liked the cotton sheets. The staff was helpful and friendly. There was a great restaurant across the street. Ivonne, thanks for the recommendation.The hotel could improve by doing some small maintenance and fixing the small details of the paint, such as, strait lines. We were a little sad when we went upstairs to check out the hot tub, and we saw a cute little dog who had a shock collar. The dog wanted to greet us, but he was scared of the electric shock.

My partner and I are here right now for nine nites....we love it! The breakfasts are awesome and the beds are super comfortable. Lots of pillows. We rented scooters just down around the corner and were having a blast on them. Checking out a different beach every day and finding cool out of the way places. You can really explore the island with a scooter. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Update to a superior room....it's worth it...

The hotel was cute with several great outdoor spaces to relax or have a drink. The rooms were large and very clean, although some of the modern furniture felt a little cheap. Breakfast was really a highlight. Great location for walking around Cozumel, and near a ton of shops and restaurants. It was an excellent value for the price. I did not think it lived up to the glowing endorsements submitted by other travelers, but it is still a great option for those looking for a budget friendly casual environment away from the resorts.

This is a great place at which I have stayed in past years. It is very nicely updated, and rooms are very clean, people friendly, good breakfast, great location, quiet, close to everything, which can really save on cab fare. Good air conditioning in rooms, comfortable beds, and good sized rooms. Very nice neighborhood, with good restaurants close by. A short walk to the piers and plaza and all the shopping. I would not hesitate to stay again or recommend. Although, it is on the high end pricewise for what it is. Perhaps one can negotiate a better price.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a Superior room, and ask for one on the north end - quieter. Mine was on the...

I can't say enough about this hotel. This is a boutique hotel - not one of those huge impersonal hotels. Perfect in every way. Lush rooms, lots of places to read during the day and just chill out. Rooms were beautiful, clean and modern. Someone has put a considerable amount of thought into the design and use of this place.

There is a great rooftop area with plenty of sunloungers and views of the sea (and a jacuzzi). I spent a few afternoons up on the roof with a book, enjoying the view and the cool breeze off the ocean.

The bar downstairs is great and Ivan makes the most delicious margaritas and mango daiquiri's.

Rooms come with breakfast which is another added bonus - you don't have to go out trekking for food first thing in the morning.

Adrian, who manages the hotel, is a great source of information about diving and snorkeling and can organise diving days for you - which includes a taxi pick up service directly from the hotel.

This hotel is nicely situated - away from the touristy area (which is concentrated around two blocks off the main square and as you get off the ferry) yet still in walking distance of absolutely everything.

This hotel had done it right.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect - a no brainer! We chose a 'Courtyard Room' which to me was luxurious...

It's tucked away, but in a lovely location. If you want to get away from the large condo's, and walking distance to the Supermarkets, this is the place. I also felt very safe walking back at night to the Flamingo. Ivan and all of the staff are just lovely, not to mention helpful. I really enjoyed the artworks around the hotel, and the common rest area's on each level. Breakfast included was always delicious, weather you wanted a simple croissant, or a hot meal. I would choose to stay again.

This place is very clean, confortable (great beds and pillows), and very cozy. It is also calm with a great relax vibe. All staff is so helpfull, professional and kind.

Also, the hotel is located downtown, near from all activities, but not in the crowded tourist central place; just perfect to experience the mexicain culture.

The breakfast is fresh, healthy and tasty. Coffee is excellent.

I trully recommend this place for couples, families or people travelling alone or with friends. But it isn't a party place, so you have to go at Playa del Carmen for those who wants to go out clubbin, by taking the ferry near from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with new A/C unit.
