Villas Flamingos
Ranked #2 of 20 Hotels in Holbox Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I just stayed at Villas Flamingos for 2 nights with a couple of friends and let me tell you it's just amazing! Recently remodeled after a fire in February, the owner (Alejandro) went out of his way to make living in paradise possible. Every room has its charm, he gave us a tour of the different suites in the hotel and they are all amazing. We stayed in a two bed beachfront suite with its own jacuzzi with a view of the tranquil waters of Holbox. The beds are incredible! and the outdoors shower is a great surprise. With queen size swings at the beach you can be assured you will relax completely. The service (David was great!) is just on point, the whole team goes out of their way to make you feel special and pampered. The food is good, not much to brag about but great snacks and cocktails for a relaxing time at the beach. Iván was very accommodating, he helped us relocate after we were not completely happy with the room we first got. Compared to other hotels in the area, the big plus I can see Villas Flamingos has is that it is right on the water, other hotels you need to cross the road (with the trouble of noisy golf carts disturbing your peace) but here you are secluded and the quiet is very welcome. All in all, we had a beautiful time in paradise! If you are ever in Holbox this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: The beachfront suites have an amazing jacuzzi where you can relax watching the amazing sunsets Holbo...

The new and re-built Villa Flamingos is one of the best hotels I've ever been. All the Staff and Alejandro (owner) were really friendly and service oriented, always caring about you!. Rooms are spectacular with gorgeous views, and an impressive design and decoration. Best chef in town, excellent food, bungalow rooms with jacuzzi at the top floor with stunning views, and those on the beach level with a swimming pool within, impressive!! Nothing to do with the old Villa Flamingos. this new hotel got re-invented after the fire back in feb 2014, and allow me to say that I've travel the world and after being there, this is one of the Best in Class hotel ! You wont regret the investment!

Room Tip: any room you choose will be perfect! but bungalows either on the top floor or lower level are the be...

Beautiful hotel. Staff so friendly and accommodating. Rooms are lovely; spacious, clean, well maintained. Rooms with jacuzzi and top floor sitting area are fantastic. I could spend days here looking out at sea or walking along the beautiful beach. Food is very good even if menu stays the same, but there are easy options to go to other hotels or restaurants in town for variety. Custom made cocktails are wonderful; they will mix whatever you like. Very easy to rent a golf buggy or get a taxi to have mobility. Trip to whale sharks is a must do. This place us such a welcome break from the hustle of cancun - peaceful and relaxing. Well worth combining with a trip to a large resort hotel to give you the contrast. We came with three boys aged 8-13 who love this place. Highlight of our trip to Mexico. I cannot understand anyone who could criticise this place. Everyone tries so hard and they really deliver a carefree rest. From the outside this would appear the best choice in holbox. Really good value too

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.
