“Great place...”
Reviewed 13 July 2006

Although we were planning to stay in Playa Del Carmen and only realised we were staying on Conzumel on the way to Playa we were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the island.

The Flamingo is very nice, basic but the A/C and TV worked the rooms were clean and the beds comfy, the staff are very nice and the owner Tom very helpful with places to go etc...We did lots of snokerling and horse riding and really liked the beaches at Mr Sanchez beach club. If you can drive rent a car as you'll see so much more and the taxis can start to get a bit pricey. The location of the hotel is close to the town but not beaches.

I would 100% recommend eating at the restaurant if the 19 yr old guy is cooking he is amazing (sorry I forget his name) The fish was delicious the best food I had in Mexico without a doubt. The bar area is nice it was hard to drag ourselves away for an evening out.

This is a fantastic cheap option for the island and a great place to stay make sure you take a beer to the terrace and watch the sunset!

I have been to the Hotel Flamingo a number of times in the last 6 years, and the hotel's charm continues to increase. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and speaks great English. The restaurant and bar have become something of a watering hole for some locals, so this is a good place to meet the locals. On Saturday night, the hotel has live Latin music, and it is a very lively and fun place to have a dinner. And this hotel is in the heart of the downtown, and near the square, which allows for many activities without getting into a car. This hotel is truely a local gem. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants something more than a plain vanilla US-style hotel.

This is my first time at the hotel.. I love it... the staff are helpful and friendly and always smiling.. Not to mention very cute... Very clean and safe.. You can leave your stuff out in the room and never have to worry about. The food and drinks are perfect. Ivan the bartender is mucho good at making a drink and will learn to make any drink for you if he does know it.. Carlos the manager is great, he makes sure you are always smilling. I will be returning again..

Thomas and his entire crew were very nice, met and exceeded all our needs. Very helpful with hints of where to do, what to do and what to avoid!

The rooms were spacious, I recommend the superior or the villa(for 4 persons), although the bathrooms left something to be desired. This has been recently corrected (according to Thomas via email) by renovation, and the minor problem they had was corrected in one hour. (water pressure was lost for an hour or so).

THe food and drinks were awesome, aand a good value. the band was a nice diversion as well.

we didnt use the guide or rental services, and the spa is new to us as well so cannot comment on these.

overall a very pleasant service and enjoyable experince away from the cruise and touristy pier scene!

Other hints: utilize the bakery two blocks east of hotel for packing a beach lunch, breakfast/lunch at the museam or the small cafe across street, Isis car rental 2 1/2 blocks away, and go to the square on there weekly "local" events. Also stay away from the scooters for rental-we've heard a lot of horror stories, and always take before and after pictures of anything you rent to prevent additional charges no matter who you rent from!

Most of all enjoy, relax and eat where the locals eat-we did and loved it all!

We were two couples and an 18 year old son staying at the Penthouse at the Hotel Flamingo - unfortunately for only two nights. We found the employees very helpful and the Penthouse pleasant. Where else can you get a rooftop patio right next to your room, and a complete kitchen even equipped with a Broncos Barbeque grill? We had a lovely ocean view, a living room and two bedrooms at a VERY reasonable price. The town square and the ferry were within easy walking distance - all the shopping that we could handle and many non-tourist restaurants (79 cent tacos!) were very close as well. We did not use the restaurant but the Margaritas were good. Sunsets were great. We will be back unless all of you readers beat us to it!

Having used the hotel as a destination 5 times over the last 12 years some of the pluses have been to see the hotel evolve to a spot as a hangout for a lot of local living americans and it has always been an extreme pleasure to chat and share drinks at the bar to get a feel for what the island really is like.there are so many interesting characters that grace the premises that the hotel itself is a trip!!! not since "JOES" was a hotspot on the island has there been a better place to hang on saturday nights ,the live music and the feel are unbeatable.one of the other pleasures is the way the front desk handels travel issues and scuba plans,it creates a worry free stay.
