The Aqua Restaurant & Bar
A delightful open air restaurant in our lush garden where service begins each morning with a wonderful mexican or american breakfast, followed by a wonderful selection of mexican lunch favorites…. The Aqua Bar is the place to be for meeting friends after an eventful day of fun…..taste one of the many exotic tropical cocktails or sip a cool mexican beer in our aqua lounge…always alive with the sounds of our diverse selection of recorded music…..when the weekend comes our Cuban band lights up the night and things really get hot with salsa dancing….

Wonderful Stay -- We will go back!!

The hotel is a small, non-beach accommodation but the cleanliness, friendliness and everything about it were absolutely phenomenal. The free breakfasts are the best, and Ivan the bartender can recommend anything you need to know to eat or go. It was perfect!

When you arrive in the Airport (if you fly into Cozumel) ignore anyone even if they look like official airport employees if they tell you all travel accommodations must channel through them. We had prepaid transportation to our hotel, and we fell for it as the girl looked like an airport employee. We ended up in and endless awful timeshare hardsell nightmare! Just keep your head down and walk through to outside!!!

Awesome Vacation!

This is a small boutique hotel that is in the perfect location for shopping and dinning. The staff is super friend and helpful, we stayed in a Superior room that was nice and big. The 2 down sides there was no pool and no ice machines. but they had a stocked fridge with very reasonably priced drinks. Ivan makes a mean mojito at th e bar. Breakfast was good and very inexpensive if you wanted more that just toast and a fruit plate. We are planning on going back again in November. We rented scooters from Isis, which is right around the corner and explored the island everyday. Best Vacation ever! Cozumel is a refreshing, relaxing break from Play del Carmen and Cancun!

Cheap, clean, great location and great service

This hotel is located at the center of town. Practically everything is walking distances. You can rent scooters just around the corner (ISIS) or you can set up your diving. There are couple of eateries across the street from the hotel as well, an Argentina Asado type grill place and a local taqueria. In general you will not be disappointed with the food in Cozumel. Breakfast (with the $2.50 upgrade) at Flamingo is really a good deal. Room has AC, wifi (sometimes reaches the room!), clean bathrooms, sheets etc. Location is safe. I have heard people complain about the hard mattresses, but, I didn't find it uncomfortable. Oxxo (7-11 type places) are nearby and so is a mega (walmart type super store ) 1 mile away. The ferry terminal is also close by. The staff at Flamingo (Adrain, Ivan, Elisabeth) are phenomenal. Very friendly. I recommend this place for adults, looking to do their own thing. Not a lot for kids to do.

Fantastic couples getaway

Clean/comfortable. Walking distance to great local restaurants. great bartender took care of us and enjoyed mingling with other travelers. they had a refrigerator mini bar in the room which was kept stocked daily with beer, wine, soda, bottled water and more. We never had to shop or set foot in a store all week. Rented a car and went to a different beach everyday and explored the island. Great fun!

Relaxing Week in Cozumel

I stayed at the Hotel Flamingo for a week in early January and had a great time. The hotel is a perfect location to walk to everything. You can walk a few blocks to the square for dinner/shopping or a few blocks to the water. This is a not a good hotel if you want to be on the beach, but you are a short taxi ride from great beaches. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff is great and very helpful to schedule day trips or help you rent a bike for a tour of the island. The breakfast and coffee were great in the morning and the margaritas at the bar were excellent in the evening. The room was very clean and friendly staff. The only problem was the water pressure was a little low since it is an older hotel. Need to let the water run to warm up. Great little hotel for the money and the location could not be better. I will be back again for a another stay soon.

Dreamy

We love this place and raved to all our friends that if you are in Cozumel this is the place to stay! Given that we are use to air conditioned lives we were so thankful to have a/c in the room! You will not regret your stay in this beautiful hotel.

Great Value, Nice first night in Cozumel

We had a nice "first night" stay in Cozumel on our way to one of the resorts. From this hotel it is easy to explore the rest of the city. We'll be back if the price is as competitive as our last stay!

Great Boutique Hotel in Paradise!

I stayed here with two friends for a 4 day weekend. It was so nice. The hotel is pretty, has a nice continental breakfast, helpful staff & is in a nice location near delicious restaurants. They were doing a bit of construction on the stairs near our room in the morning which was a little noisy but not too bad. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
