“Villa Flamingos is great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

We have been on Holbox many times and Villa Flamingos is a wonderful place to stay. Many improvements have been made and it is a quiet oasis on the beach with all the amenities. We first stayed at Flamingos 11 years ago so we've seen the improvements over time. The rooms are nice, the gardens and surroundings are beautiful and quiet. It's the perfect place to relax. The staff is friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Stayed at villas flamingos for 4 nights and we wish we could have stayed longer. The gardens and surroundings are quiet, peaceful and very well maintained. Do not expect many tourists and entertainment but if searching for a place to relax, this is it. Breakfast was made as you wish, the pool is nice, warm and clean and the staff is friendly and helpfull. Sleep in you hammock on your balcony, drink a wine on the terrace or read your book somewhere in the garden...we considered to keep the name of this place quiet so nobody would discover it:)

Pros: Loved the individual palapa rooms. Beach location was great. Short walk to quaint town. Cons: front desk staff was slow. Breakfasts were plain / repetative. Bar was often out of rum and mint (mojitos)

We spent 3 days in the hotel. We arrived in Cancun and we took the wrong way and missed the last ferry. We called the hotel and they arranged a boat to pick us up. Next day we went for the whale shark tour the hotel arranged for us. The boat picked us up at the beach of the hotel. We were lucky with the weather and there were plenty of whale sharks in the sea. We and the kids had a great time. We got a house overlooking the sea which was great. There was a big jaccuzi on the second floor and it took long time to fill it up. We slept well every night. The only thing that we were not used to was the toilet. No flush. That's part of the deal of eco-hotel. Breakfast was nice and included in the room rate. I have a 4-year and a 10-year old and they charged the full price for both of them.

We stayed at Flaming Villas for the Labor Day weekend. Our overall experience was very nice, the staff is very personable and friendly always willing to make our stay a pleasure, The hotel rooms are very comfotable and spacious and the food at the restaurant Los Mangles is delicious. I like this location because all rooms are ocean front. We plan to return next year.

Room Tip: stay in a Bungalo These rooms are two- storied with a jacuzzi bath tub closet space is ample

This was our 5th vacation at Villas Famingos, and it continues to get better. The island continues to grow in amenities without changing the charm of a small village. Villas Flamingos has kept its status as a eco-resort while adding hot tubs, second floor lounging areas, and wonderful views to each cabana. Air conditioning was also added, although with the constant sea breeze, not offten needed. The in-house restaurant as expanded their menu, and the dishes are always interesting, flavorful, and presented beautifully. The beach, the water, and the walk to the "point" were as perfect as ever. My best recommendation; We are planning to return in 2013. It doesn't get better than this.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, but the cabanas are the way to go!

Came to stay here for a few nights in June after a wonderful stay in Cancun. Needed another vacation just to recover from the first!! Lol!!! But we both found it too quiet and a bit on the boring side.... sorry!!! not a thing happening around the hotel or in the hotel except sunbathing.
