“great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2009

We had such a good experience. The staff was so friendly and very attentive to our needs. The room was clean and the feather bed made our experience so much better The mosquito net added such a romantic touch to our experience. The bartender Ivan spoke great English and made us the most amazing cocktails. The hotel is located in a quite street and yet in the heart of downtown Cozumel. We could walk everywhere, we felt safe. Great experience, great value

I've been to Mexico twice now, the first time I stayed at The Flamingo. The staff was welcoming and friendly and the hotel was in the perfect location. It was my cousin and I's birthday and they MADE us a cake and sang Happy Birthday to us! The second time I stayed at an all inclusive resort. I will never stay anywhere but The Flamingo now. The resort was miles outside of town, The Flamingo is a 5 minute walk from the center of town. We rented a car and drove into the city just to visit the staff and hang out for awhile. The Flamingo is not just a place to stay when your out of town, it's your second home. (And they make the cutest swans out of the towels and leave them on your bed!)

The staff (top to bottom) is always just a step away from your needs, from breakfast-to-bedtime. Very attentive and easy to talk with about the island and any current event. The cozy hotel has rooms with effective a/cs and COMFORTABLE beds with plenty of pillows. Within walking distance of any dining or shopping needs you will have, and towel animals to look forward to each day. Cold beer at the bar. No hesistations to stay here again.

Spent 5 nights at this great boutique hotel. Stayed in a superior room which was very clean and roomy. Note that there is limited drawer space for storage but that was a minor inconvenience.

The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive and Ivan's mojito's were fabulous! Breakfast (which was included) is also great and I highly recommend the coconut french toast. Will definitely stay here again!

Just got back from a long weekend trip to San Miguel, Cozumel for some diving and relaxation. Hotel Flamingo was a perfect choice for both. We stayed in their penthouse which was very nice. . new LG refrigerator, lovely patio and comfortable all around. Was perfect for the couple and 2 singles in our group. The people at the hotel were so friendly and took care of any request or question you had. We so enjoyed ordering food from across the street and hanging out in the bar or the sidewalk tables while enjoying Ivan's mojito's. Our stay in the rooms was wonderful and they took care of all of our diving arrangements as well. Sergio and Alberto with Aquatic Sports were the best! See you guys soon!

We had a very excellent stay in the Penthouse Villa at the Flamingo. Very reasonably priced and all the staff was courtious and polite and very very helpful to my wife and mother while my scuba partner and myself went diving during the day. Tom, the owner was very great, he went scuba diving with us on our second day. Ivan at the bar at night was excellent and we were able to sit on the street drinking Cerveza and eat tacos ordered from the little eatery across the street. Julian in the morning made the best Huevos Rancheros, and served very excellent coffee, Starbucks. Laticia and Xantal were very helpful in giving suggestions/recommendations and also assisting when we needed something, i.e. calling a taxi, etc.

When we first came to Cozumel, we stayed here - just a shot in the dark. After 5 trips back, we have decided that we will NOT stay anywhere else! We tried that once and won't make the same mistake twice! Tom is the owner and is very attentive! Ivan, Julian, Xantal, Erika, Veronica, Elizabeth, well, the entire staff is unbelievable! We have now taken 13 people down with us, and everyone agrees that this is the place to be! Small enough to give you the attention you deserve (they even remember your name, not your room number!) but big enough that you have your privacy when you want it! The new paint and new sidewalk area are amazing! While you're here ask Ivan, the bartender, to make you a "swimming pool"! YUM!
These people know where the good food, the good car rentals, the good SCUBA places are! If they recommend it, listen! They are amazing!
On behalf of my entire family Tom and crew, THANK YOU!
Can't wait to come back!
