Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the buses for cheap transportation. It is safe and you can see the locals. It costs 65 pesos (under 65 cents) Ask the Hotel staff where to pick it up. Alot of Americans take it. The only draw back was this hotel is at the marina to far from El Centro (downtown) and we took the buses all the time.

Great staff, worn out facility!

Not having been to Puerto Vallarta in 12 years, we remembered the marina as a developing area...the Flamingo is trapped in time! Upon arrival, the hotel looked welcoming and quaint. Actually a bit better than the bargain hotels downtown. The advantage is that all the rooms have a balcony. The staff is GREAT. Every member was friendly, tried to speak English and did all in their power to accommodate guests. The rooms are clean, the beds hard and room decor is dated. There are no amenities (NO hair dryer, iron, micro, coffee maker, fridge...! If you need any of these the staff will help you. We rented a fridge for $10.00 for the week. You'll need to get ice from the pool bar/only restaurant. There is NO music or entertainment on site. A first floor room is set up with internet access (plug in your PC)area. The pool is clean and well maintained.

Frequent guest

Very inexpensive, convenient place to stay near the airport. Perfect for an overnight on the way to another location. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean. There is a pool and bar AND great resturants within walking distance. The marina where it is located is charming and quiet.

Hard to find, but worth it

We needed somewhere to stay for a single night because our flight arrived a day earlier than our hotel reservation elsewhere. This looked like the kind of Mexican-run hotel we like, so we took a chance (at about half what I would have expected to pay). The hotel turned out to be charming and (at least in April, post-Santa Semana) quiet, with a relaxed and helpful staff. It's quite close to the most laid-back end of the Puerto Vallarta marina, near the fantastic, bargain seafood restaurant La Coleguita. The catch, at least for those driving a rented car, is that you'll have a hard time finding it, especially at night. It's only five minutes from the airport, but we took an hour, including a ten-minute stop at a marina restaurant getting directions. Basically, you turn into the marina (at the Neptune statue), take the first left and then left again to head for the marina boat launch. Just before the launch, there's what looks like a blind alley heading off the street to the left. The dark alley is actually a road that bends and snakes along to the Flamingo. There's plenty of parking at the end. Later in the week, we learned from some Mexican friends who also happened to be staying there that they have a great breakfast included in the price of the room. We'll remember that for next time. This has got to be the best combination of price and location in the PV marina. You can be close to everything there at a fraction of the cost of a night at one of the big resort hotels.

La Coleguita, just past the boat launch when leaving the hotel along the marina, may not be much for atmosphere, but it has some of the very best seafood in town at a great price. Don't miss it.
