great hotel

The Flamingo Hotel was a great choice for our family. We were very satisfied about everything and it is a great address for a very reasonable price. The staff was very kind and the breakfast delicious. The room was clean and we had an ocean view.

As always, we absolutely loved staying at The Flamingo. We return each year because of the great service and warm, cozy feel of the hotel. Staff is always gracious, place is always spotless and it's so convenient to everything around you.

Would visit again

The Flamingo in Cancun was very pleasant. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The environment was beautiful and relaxing. The hotel was conveniently located to other restaurants and the local bus system which is easy to use. The concierge was very helpful and had convenient hours. The hotel beach was gorgeous and had waverunner rentals and parasailing nearby. My husband and I would definitely go back again.

Good hotel for a good time.

My opinion this should be 5 star hotel. the employees are very friendly and attentive, the food and drink are very good, the pool very clean and the whole hotel, the beautiful beach, the bar in the hotel lobby very nice, definitely recommend it but pick a junior or deluxe room with sea view, you will not be disappointed. my only complaint is with the internet service, they charge $ 15.00 dollars per day, but the speed is very good and one can connect around the hotel, but you can connect a single electronic equipment.

No bells & whistles

No bells & whistles here. But if you are looking for a comfortable inexpensive hotel with a great location this is the place. We have never stayed at an all inclusive hotel because there are so many great restaurants and places of entertainment in Cancun that it would be a waste of money to us. If we do ever decide to try an all inclusive resort this would not be the place. There is basically one restaurant. They also have a beach front cafe and they cook burgers & hotdogs at one of the pools. The food is fine but I imagine it would get a little boring. We do however eat breakfast there quite a few times during our stay(it's a decent breakfast buffet for $12.50). We like to walk while on vacation and this place is perfect for that. You can walk across the street to the Flamingo Mall or to La Isla Mall about a mile, or to the point almost two miles, and countless restaurants in between. This year the beaches have eroded again in Cancun, so no matter where you stay call first to make sure your hotel still has a beach. The Flamingo does, but if is much smaller. We also upgrade to a junior suite which is one story above the beach and have very large patios. Even if you don't upgrade to a junior suite, at least get an ocean view room. We have been coming to Cancun on & off for 21 years.

Very friendly staff made us very comfortable stay

The reception lady at the front counter did her best to get the room we dreamed. The room and its beds are neat. The whole environment are so beautiful and clean. It is easy of access the beach, pool and car parking lot. This hotel's location is wonderful at Cancun. The luxury shopping malls are just at walking distance (10 minutes or less) for night activity. And short distance to downtown Cancun by bus. And very good drive way to Maya ruins. We had a very good time.

Comfortable and Centrally Located

The Flamingo Cancun resort was everything one would want in a vacation hotel. The junior ocean front suite was larger and more comfortable. The room had large closets and drawer space. It was also clean and brightly decorated. The food was great and the service staff was friendly and helpful. Located in the center of the hotel zone and close to a shopping mall. Housekeeping was creative with towel folding and the mini bar was always refilled daily. It was especially nice to have a biligual staff.

Great Location, Friendly Staff

This hotel is right in the middle of many restaurants, malls and close to Tortuga Beach, which is the location to embark into the boat that takes you to Isla Mujeres. It has two swimming pools, restaurant, bar, and it is right in front of the beach. Hotel is clean, staff is friendly and the food is pretty good (Specially Breakfast). Remember to tip well, so you get the best service everytime. I will highly recommend Isla Mujeres to anybody looking for an entire day of fun.
