Lots of restaurants in the marina.

Posted 15-Jan-2017
Pros: Nice view of the marina.
Worst hotel we have every stayed in for noise. Also, we were not told that there would be construction all week at the hotel or we would have cancelled our reservation. Between the jack hammers and slug hammers there was no peace. Also, one night at about 11:00 they decided to bring out the chain saw to cut down a tree. That was a real treatreat to say the least. Not impressed!

Good stay

Posted 13-Jan-2017
Pros: good wifi, right on the harbor, friendly staff
Cons: I don't really expect more for the good value
Location: Walking distance to airport, many fishing charters in the harbor, many shops and restaurants / bars.
Good location, several employees were fluent in English, good eats nearby.

Great Staff and Great Location

Posted 21-Dec-2016
Pros: Staff, location, drinks, restaurant, pool area, nightly entertainment, taxi service.
Cons: Maybe offer fridge to the guest rooms.
Location: Numerous possibilities to eat and drink but mostly it is a very enjoyable destination for people watching and strolling the marina front.
The Flamingo is a fantastic option for the average traveler who wishes to capture the essence of Mexico by staying at a truly Mexican hotel. The staff works endlessly to please and the front desk personnel is knowledgeable and equally accommodating as the rest of the staff. I can say that I had the most memorable stay in all the years I have been to Vallarta and I hope to continue being a patron of the Flamingo Marina Resort for generations to come. Thanks to everyone who made my stay exceptional and a particular thanks to the staff for making me feel welcome and offering friendly chats. Thank you my new friends in Vallarta and hope to travel here again very soon.

OK for short stay

Posted 14-Dec-2016
Our room was fine for a one night stay. The one major problem was a drunken foul-mouthed woman in a nearby room who came home excessively drunk and got into a screaming argument with another woman. The rooms are not at all soundproof and this woman's screaming and cursing kept us from sleeping till 1:30 a.m. There was no action taken by the hotel stall to curtail her yelling and cursing.

Better Than Expected

Posted 11-Dec-2016
Pros: We liked the friendly, attentive staff, the quaint Mexican charm and the safe location with easy access to restaurants and shops on the marina.
Cons: The pool water is very cold. There are no umbrellas for shade but, one side of the pool stays shady most of the day. Wifi was spotty but, under repair
Location: The location is quiet and close to the marina shops and restaurants. The bus is a block away. There is no beach access.
The hotel is like a mini resort. It has a well manicured garden area, with a pool and bar/restaurant giving a great view of the marina. While we were there for a week they featured several special entertainment nights and food buffets. It is an older facility but, is undergoing some renovations and upgrades, a room at a time, so it is not disruptive. It is kept exceptionally clean.
