“Great Bargain in Celestun”
Reviewed 24 November 2007

We stayed in this hotel recently. It is immediately next door to the Mangalares (nice hotel but more than 2x the price) The beach is the same. Flamingo has clean rooms, Sky cable TV, otherwise basic. Nice small pool overlooking the beach/ocean. Free beach loungers available, no restaurant. Get the end room by the pool & you may be able to take a midnight skinny dip if all is quiet. We did. In the off season most restaurants close early - by 7pm. There was only one which stayed open until 10 pm.
Be sure to take a boat tour of the area to see the flamingoes and mangroves. If you are a birder ask for Ismael at the government tour facility at the entrance to Clestun by the bridge.

Reviewed 16 November 2006

Looks run down from the front, but it's right on a nice beach, walking distance to town and restaurants. Pool is small but very nice and great view of the sea. Rooms are simple but clean. Price is right at about $30 US dollars. Price considered, this was great place.
Next door is the much nicer Hotel Manglares -- but their price was almost triple and they still haven't built their pool, not even any action towards that. We preferred the savings and the pool.
The for sale sign appeared during our stay -- maybe the next owners will clean up the front view!
