Great hotel for the value

For the money you spend,this is a great hotel. The pool is pretty cool,it's located right on the beach,which is amazing,and a couple of bus stops from the nightlife scene(if you are interested in that). The food is decent,especially in the restaurant by the beach(you have to make a reservation for this one),but even the buffet one is good.Overall, I would definitely opt for the all inclusive deal,especially if you are into drinking as well(who isn't when on a vacation). There are also two bars(one by the pool and one in the lobby). The staff is nice,especially if you actually leave tips,they will go out of their way to get you anything you want(The chef even brought me some tequila from his office,that was cool). Anyways,it's not a 5 star hotel,but for the value,it's really good and i would definitely stay here again if on a budget.

Average vacation

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach was nice. No beach side service. Im used to having this in Mexico. Would not go back to this hotel due to no beach side service. Expensive food. Gym needs some upgrades. Our Housekeeper was wondeful. Wish I could bring her home.

Excellent Beach Location!!

The beach is absolutely Amazing one of the best beach fronts ever! The food was a VERY BIG DISSAPOINTMENT!!! They had limited options with the buffet tried the all inclusive for two days and found ourselves going out to eat. Our room had a broken shower head and the telephone was not working.you pay for what you get. I like the fact that the hotel is central to the malls and resturaunts .

Very good family vacation

Hotel was very nice it had an amazing location with a mall and a restaurant/bar margaritaville and stake house right across from the hotel. The only thing that was bad was food in the hotel itself and the specific smell that was in the room.

Awesome, family friendly

Middle of the hotelzone, it sounded like private hotel and beach area. Nice to relax near pool area. Very family friendly. Great food and drinks. Worth for the money we spent. I will definitely consider going back for relaxation in future...

Good Value - Flamingo Cancun

Flamingo Cancun is a basic hotel. Amenities are limited. No room refrigerator or coffee maker. Staff is not overly friendly and appear to police your stay very carefully. You have to pay for internet if you want this in your room. No complaints however. AC worked (December), toilets worked. Location is the best part of this hotel, both beach-wise as well as on the strip (Kukulkan Blvd)

Great Deal, but you get what you pay for

pros: The price and location could not be beat. It had a lovely beach, right across the street from a pharmacy and an ATM, 15 minute walk away from the market and a shopping mall. Additionally, the staff was very accommodating. cons: room smelled a bit moldy, bugs in the room, hot tub/jacuzzi doesn't get hot, some of the rooms dont have a safe (though they have small ones at the front desk), our room did not have a 3 pronged outlet

Not a Good Experience At All

The Flamingo Cancun Resort did not provide a good experience overall. We purchased the all-inclusive package for vacation. The food and drink quality was very poor, and my group often found ourselves hungry because of the selections available. The hotel staff was not friendly to my group at all, and I am not sure if the poor service was related to us being African-American. I would not recommend this resort to anyone, and my group regrets spending our vacation there.

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.
