Great location....nasty food

The location of the Flamingo Cancun Resort was great! We were located right across the street from Margaritaville, Outback, and Bump Gump Shrimp which came in handy. In addition, the shopping centers and nightlife were not far at all. The food was not good at all and hand very little variation. If you did not tip you would surely know by the service you receive. Make sure you keep pesos of dollar bills....we made that mistake. The drinks were watered down but the bartenders were the nicest staff members. Loved Cancun but will not stay at the Flamingo again! I guess we got what we paid for with traveling right before Christmas on a budget.

Really nice stay!

The staff is great! The hotel has a really good location. We had a nice beachview room, the only bad thing was that the AC didnĀ“t work correctly.

The hotel was about average. I wasn't planning to spend to much time in the room, so I chose this hotel to save money. The biggest downer was the internet at the room. You had to buy a prepaid card ($15 US) that was good for one device, for up to 24 hours...if you turned the computer off, session ended...have to buy another card... The hotel is a smaller hotel, so meeting people was harder then at the larger hotels. The 5 nights I was there, only meet about 4 other English speaking guests...

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

All the hotels in Cancun only allow people that are staying at the hotel (everyone has wrist bands). If you're looking to bring someone back to your room, they have to be guest at the hotel...

Double charged, staff won't help

I stayed here back in March of 2013. I was double charged for a room upgrade ($125), and the staff won't do anything about it. I have tried repeatedly to get a refund and even sent bank documents verifying that I paid twice, at the hotel's request. Still nothing. Going on 6 months now and can't get my money back.
