Stay here!

We absolutely loved our hotel. The owners were very friendly and helpful along with the rest of the staff. Playa Flamingo is pretty quiet so we spent a couple of evenings hanging out at the hotel for dinner and had a chance to get to know the staff, and the area. The hotel was beautiful and we ate breakfast every morning on the balcony. The view was amazing and make sure you wear sunscreen (even to breakfast) as there may not be a place to sit in the shade. The food at the hotel, including the free breakfast, was very good. My husband and I quickly grew to love casado or rice and beans with breakfast. This place is a great bargain and a great hotel! Only complaint: there was no where to sit in our hotel room other than the bed or two plastic chairs outside. A small love seat would have been a nice addition. Don't let the hill discourage you! We walked up and down it multiple times a day!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You don't need a car! We either took a taxi or walked up and down the hill. It limited the area we could check out but saved us a ton of money!

There is a pizza/sub restaurant at the bottom of the hill. It is very good and not too pricey considering it is targeted at tourists.

Missing photos = bad sign

Rooms not shown on website.....for a reason. While lobby and pool are wonderful, bedroom and bathroom need major remodeling, redecorating. Bath towels are thread bare. Stained ceilings, very hard beds, stained, dirty, cracked grout in bathroom. Pool chair options: white resin patio chairs or wooden slatted lounge chairs with no cushions. Pool towels: thread bare bathroom towels in a previous life. Indoors and out - this "I could be a priceless gem" of a place needs "hotel Impossible" help. is in a total state of disrepair. Sadly of all: the staff are all wonderful, friendly and very customer service oriented. Wish the hotel could live up to the reputation of the people who work there.

Hotel in HIding

We nearly booked another hotel even though we had paid for this room because it was so difficult to find. We drove around Playa Flamingo for 1 1/2 hours just trying to find the hotel. The security guard at the neighboring hotel didn't know where this hotel was! It turns out there was not one sign for the hotel! Not even on the hotel itself. It is ridiculously inconsiderate of hotel guests to book them and then not even post a single sign to allow them to find your hotel! What a PAIN! I wish I had never booked this room.
