Nice facility and pool area with bar.

Posted 20-Mar-2017
Service staff are excellent, friendly and speak English well. Very willing to give opinions and suggestions for getting around town and other restaurants and bars to frequent. Rooms are clean and comfortable, sometimes have to wait a bit for the water to get warm in the shower.

Nice enough hotel and grounds. A bit small.

Posted 26-Feb-2017
Food was horrible and food service was horrible. No butter for toast cream for coffee. Had to ask for everything especially condiment wise. They brought it if they felt like it. Ran out of food especially at breakfast (ie toast, bacon etc) and didn't replace it. If your a senior citizen looking for a nice quiet small hotel and not picky on food or service, then chk it out.

Convenient to Marina

Posted 23-Feb-2017
Pros: Garden and pool, location close to marina restaurants and shops. Reasonable price.
Cons: It's tired. They are making improvements. Wish they would put a fridge and coffee maker in the rooms, or give the option of paying for them.
Location: Marina is very pretty. You can take a bus to the Old Town. Costco and Walmart are close by, plus a modern indoor mall with movie theatre.
We were not happy with our first room, being seniors we did not want to walk up & down a flight of stairs, the bathroom was awful, and there was no couch. We had also paid to upgrade to a marina view with balcony. This had a brick wall around the outside. But - we were shown other rooms the next day after people had checked out, and ended up with something more suitable. We had this experience last year. There is a variety of rooms, and you need to insist on a change if you're not happy, they try to fob off the least desirable. That said, the staff are very pleasant, there is a pretty little garden, the pool is lovely (especially for families), and you walk out directly on to the marina promenade with many good restaurants.

small, quiet hotel

Posted 23-Feb-2017
Pros: Smaller hotel, beautiful location, laid back atmosphere. Not expensive.
Cons: Some room updating, food options
Location: Beautiful marina location, quiet area. Fishing and boating excursions right there, shops and restaurants in walking distance, easy transportation.
We picked the Flamingo for this trip because of the price, the location and availability. It is an older facility that is being upgraded as of this review, there was some construction going on while we were there but nothing to take away from our experience. The hotel is small and uncrowded, with most of the visitors being at or neat retirement age, so it is also a quieter, laid back site.This is probably due to the fact that the hotel is not on the beach.The staff was friendly and helpful. Food was average buffet style fare, not bad but not great. Room was basic but clean and comfortable, bed was OK, shower had good pressure and hot water. Our room had a beautiful view of the pool and marina. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. If you're looking for a place that's not crowded and more relaxed for a good price and nice location, this is a good option.

the all inclusive was a waste of money

Posted 22-Feb-2017
Pros: staff, shuttle to the beach,
Cons: better food and more selection, large bin of bacon at breakfast instead of a small pan. hot coffee not warm.
Location: location was ok, close to walmart, free shuttle to beach was appreciated.
hotel staff were great. food was sub par. hotdogs are not sausages fyi. coffee and bacon was hard to come by at breakfast. same food almost every day and not much selection. dinner buns were drier than a popcorn fart. Ended up eating at other restaurants. Free shuttle to the beach was nice.

A couple's getaway from the snow.

Posted 20-Feb-2017
Pros: The marina area . The staff for the most part were very good. The room was comfortable .
Cons: In my opinion the food , very basic and not much change from day to day. The pool was on the cool side. The bar was stingy with the drinks.
Location: The marina area was nice , we did a couple tours . Pirates night was fun , we toured to Sayulita and Bucarius .
We spent ten days at the Flamingo , overall I would give it a 3 star. The Marina area was nice with shops and restaurants close by.
