Reviewed 25 April 2014

Myself and two friends stayed at this hotel in April last year - beautiful location right at the bottom of the strip of beach that leads up the the main square - peaceful, clean, just a lovely place. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, and when we ate in the restaurant it was great. I couldn't recommend this place more!

The hotel is just amazing, rooms are full of little details that makes this place very unique. I wouldn't change a thing. The staff (like everybody on the isla) is cool & funny (and additionally very efficient) The food is delicious. The beauty of waking up in such a magical place is priceless, I would go back tomorrow if I could :).

All of the staff were amazing! All friendly, attentive, funny, etc.
The pool was great! The house iguanas provided entertainment during the day.
The bungalow was amazing. No TV, but good wifi strength. The beds were comfy and the upstairs Jacuzzi had great views of the beach and beach bar.
The breakfast was made to order and tasty. Their lunch food was also very tasty.
Will go back 10 out of 10!

Room Tip: Bungalow 1 was in a great spot!. Staff would bring drinks to your porch from the beach bar. Wifi str...

The hotel is a good 2 star hotel but the amenities of the hotel are like a 1 star hotel. Location is also very poor and basically you are too far from everything. If you are to visit the area, avoid this hotel and probably Holbox all together and try Cozumel or Cancun as there is nothing happening here. We were even more disappointed as the hotels labels itself as an EcoHotel to justify the basic amenities that every hotel should have. Also if you need Wi fi forget it if you are staying here.

En verdad me da lástima leer que no les gusto el hotel y tampoco le gusto Holbox.
Pero creo que les dieron una información equivocada sobre el concepto de la isla y de los hoteles que están en ella. Efectivamente el hotel esta a 15 minutos del pueblo. Pero ese es el concepto del hotel que este alejado y privado de todo con el fin de que nuestros huéspedes puedan disfrutar y relajarse.

En mi opinión creo que no se informaron bien del concepto de la isla y del hotel.
Quiero recalcar que haremos todo lo posible para que nuestros huéspedes no se sientan como ustedes se sintieron

Saludos.

Best location- best hotel and super service. Perfect safe beach and pool for kids. Ivan the receptionist gave the best service. Remember to visit Zapata resaurent i town, super seafood and stake. Both absolute monys worth. We vent 9 people- family of 3 generations- and all had a great trip to this hotel in Holbox. Allso a super kitespot, kiteschool 100 meters away and lots of spot only a few minutes away by cap. We have stayed many places in the world and this Hotel is a place to remember.

The hotel is beautifully set in a tropical garden, the rooms are spacious and clean. We had one of the beach bungalows which comes with its own indoor jacuzzi - perfect not only for rainy days! The private terrace with hammock and seating area is lovely if you want to escape the sun for a bit.

The staff is very friendly and helpful - whatever you need, just ask them and they will provide it. Food at the restaurant is also okay and reasonably priced. Loved the pool deck looking out on the sea which was perfect for sundowners and for watching the pelicans close by.

Please note that the hotel is located quite a bit outside of the town center and its restaurants. It is about a 10-15 minutes walk along the beach if it hasn't rained, as rain makes walking kind of difficult as the streets get flooded easily.

We have been to many hotel resorts, and nothing compares with Villas Flamingos. We keep coming back because it is not at all like other resorts, it's like a bed & breakfast. We are not one of hundreds of guests, there is only about a dozen rooms at the resort. I believe they have other apartment style houses available as well. The staff have all been there for several years; they get to know you personally, and they truely enjoy working at Villas Flamingos. Like a B&B, the owner is on premise and is always available for advice, suggestions or just conversation. With winter approaching, I find myself anticipating our next March vacation with everyone at Villas Flamingos.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms!
