Most disappointing resort I have ever been to

This morning I woke up to the sound of hammers pounding. Still happening as I write this. I am not sure why they thought a remodel on the room next door at 7am was appropiate at a resort but you get what you pay for. The food is terrible. If it wasn't all inclusive, I would not pay a dime for it. When I arrived, I was forced to pay $200 as a security deposit because they thought I was a spring breaker. With this deposit came with a contract I had to sign that promised I would not have any food or drink at the pool. Sort of false advertising for the swim up pool bar. I talked some older people here that informed me they were not required to sign the contract or pay the deposit. I would have been fine paying it if I would have been notified that they are discriminatory towards age but I was given no notice. Another thing is the last three times I went to check out a towel, they were out. Sounds nitpicky I know but wanting a towel for the beach is not unreasonable. I still have three more days here. Hopefully the rest of my stay goes more smoothly. Ps wait staff is great.

poor service / dirty rooms

this review ha been long over due. i live in Cancun for the past 2 years and booked my mom and godmother here. they don't speak much English so i of course checked them in with the front desk and assisted them to their room. on the 2nd night, there were roaches in the tub, i informed the front desk and they said they would spray it down. thats it?? so my mom told me no one entered and nothing was done. now i know everytime a friend visits me, i know they will not stay in flamingo hotel.

Upscaled hotel without internet

The hotel is very comfortable and expensive but its internet service is: - not free - slow and unstable - only for single device I need to do some work and paid for internet. The thing turned out completely useless and after a couple of hours it stopped working. I was able to survive because there is Outback Steakhouse right across the road offering free WiFi. For the hotel price it is just ridiculous to provide so bad internet service.

Not for me

I ordered and prepaid for a ocean view room. The whole lookout view was covered in compact palm trees blocking any view of the carribean. The room was very nice & clean and looked like the advertisement, which was just what I had expected all but the blocked view. I did not have a private terrace - the sliding doors opened out to ground floor with one long deck with wooden chases available for use. I opened my sliding door for fresh air and hopefully to hear the ocean but instead cigarette smoke rolled in and upset my asthma, the neighbors partied smoking and drinking a lot and being loud, they should for its their vacation - this would not have happened if the terraces were private, I was a little scared and kept my sling doors closed for when they partied, they would forget which sliding door to open and I was awaken by them trying to force my terrace doors open by accident. I was told I would get water and 2 sodas replaced in my room daily, came 4 of 7 days and left beverages only 2 times. I requested a new room with a view and they said they could only put me in a lesser room with a view, but could not upgrade without increasing my cost. I went to the lesser room, drab, smaller and needed updating, the view was blocked half way up with concrete, you did not have a view unless you stood on balcony and looked out. The breakfast food was very good, lunch and dinner not so much. The snack bar had very good hamburgers. For those that like to drink from 10am - closing - this is the place for you. I was told that if you drink a lot of alcohol, the cost of free alcohol would pay for your hotel stay and more. The heavy drinkers come back every year for 1 week - 3 months. I like seeing others having a good time. I was there for oral surgery and just wanted to look out and set on a private terrace, seeing and hearing the ocean. The Royal Islander, last year, was 100 better. My complete stay at this hotel was a great disappointment, they falsely advertised an ocean view room that was anything but!

Spring Break trip with my friends

We visited Cancun for our spring break. The hotel was nice and clean, and also it was close from the beach. It took only a minute to get the beach from the room. They provide buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! That was a great vacation ever!
