We loved every single minute we stayed at Villas Flamingos. The property is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and the food was also tasty. We felt at home here and would come back in a heart beat if we visit Holbox again. The bar/ restaurant which belongs to Flamingos and is right next door (Luuma) offers great cocktails and food and has a great atmosphere.
This hotel is located outside the villa of Holbox, but not very far. A short 10 min ride by the bikes that are provided by the hotel and you are there. The view of the sea is beautiful. Rooms are good, but noisy - we could hear all the noise made by guests and room service from the levels above and neighbour room from early morning till late at night. Food was ok - breakfast was included and it was served in a adequate buffet style. The restaurant served good options for lunch and dinner but overpriced for the island. After our second night we explored the restaurants in the villa, superior to the one in the hotel. The service was not that great. Everybody seemed tired, not making any effort to please. We enjoyed it, but next time in Holbox we will try a different place.
we dropped by during a morning stroll on the beach and asked if we could have breakfast. the buffet was great- with fresh fruits, eggs as you want them, pancakes and mexican treats, just to mention a few. it was reasonably priced and the waiters were very friendly.
I loved how this hotel has tried to minimize the impact on nature. There are bicycles for guests to use, and there are iguanas and raccoons living around the grounds. Judging from the building works not far from the hotel, there will be more and more development soon in this area. There was no aircon or TV in my room, which was just perfect. Staff are great.
This was our fifth time in Holbox but the first time to Villa Flamingos, and I have to say, what an amazing stay! We spend a weekend with other friends for a birthday celebration and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we fell in love with this magical place, due to its very tasteful product, good service, excellent food quality, the room product and its location. What most of all blew our minds was the birthday celebration set up, which was organized on the beach inside the sea, torches were placed around the table, water proofed lights placed inside the sea water providing a unique setting, the food was outstanding and the service impeccable. This was truly a special evening and a night to remember for a very long time. Congratulations and without any doubts the best hotel in Holbox!
The Villas Flamingos was a fantastic venue for me and my wife's honeymoon. Our room was lovely and even included a private pool. The service and food at the onsite restaurant was excellent, and we had many of our meals there, not feeling the need to travel to downtown hardly at all. They also provided bike and kayak rentals free of charge for the guests, which allowed us to bike to the downtown to go shopping. The Villas Flamingos is one of the resorts that is farthest away from downtown, but we found this to be a positive, in that it felt more isolated and private. And we were still able to walk or bike to the downtown if we wanted (it was only a 15 minute walk). We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Holbox.
Holbox, is a special place in the world. It is like heaven; beautiful beach, white sand, charming town, no cars, clean air. You can go by yourself, with your couple, family or with a group of friends because it is for everybody that loves nature and life This is my fifth time there and this time my friends and I stayed in Villas Flamingos!! This hotel is the best in town without any doubt. It has privacy, their own hammocks on the beach to chill out, relax or take a nice nap. The food is amazing; don’t forget to order the guacamole with mango and octopus carpaccio. We were celebrating my friend’s birthday and we planned to have a dinner on the beach. I thought that it was going to be the normal dinner that the hotels offer; however I was wrong. It was on the beach but this time it was completely different. They do not only surprised my friend but all of us. They wowed us; it was one of the best experience I have had in my life. Dinner under a sky full of stars, feeling the water on your feet and an amazing culinary experience. The rooms are great; the most comfortable in Holbox, with a lot of light, has their own Jacuzzi and with a tasteful decoration. I am counting the days to return to Villas Flamingos very soon. I really love this unique place.
My wife and I stayed at Villas Flamingos for the wedding of our two close friends. The wedding itself was unbelievably charming and a great blend of Canadian (Bride) and Mexican (Groom) culture. The wedding had mostly booked out the resort, so there were friendly faces everywhere. We stayed in a second floor room directly above the lobby (and iguana house) but found it quiet and comfortable every single night. The clean white concrete against the dark wooden beams and handmade decorations complemented the vibe of Holborn. The beach stretches for miles in both directions and found ourselves often wandering carefree following schools of fish and other sea life. The highlight of this hotel is certainly the food. The various kinds of guacamole and fish tacos were fresh, authentic and enjoyed practically every day!
This place was amazing. It is a large, well-maintained property with lots of places to hang out in hammocks or beds outside, and a gorgeous large pool overlooking the ocean. The rooms are large, clean, air-conditioned and atmospheric. The buffet breakfast is plentiful, with assortment of fruits, cereal, breads and a variety of hot dishes. And there are paddle boards, kayaks and bicycles, free for guests to use. A few in our group were vegetarian and it's too bad we didn't find out until our 3rd day that they are happy to make special meals - if you talk to the head of restaurant services, they will make just about anything to supplement their somewhat limited dinner menu. The only suggestion I would make is that they have water footpaths in front of each room so that you don't track sand into the room. Also - beware that they give you 500ml/person of water each day, but that's not enough! You can go into town and buy 4L bottled water jugs very cheap. This was by far the nicest looking hotel (we walked along the beach to town).
Got upgraded to the master suite. Beautiful room and beautiful property. The service was excellent! They really go above an beyond! Definitely will be coming back and recommending it. It was a shame that we came during rain season.
