Good but not perfect

Usually we got surprised because the hotel is better than the photos I saw on the travel web pages! They have to update the hotel photos asap! Please get a better photographer for this! The location is just great, you have access to everywhere... The hotel is simple if you compare with the other ones on the zona hoteleira, but is comfy! All the staff is really good, they threat you very well, and even if you bought the inclusive package, tips in dollars are very welcome! So be prepair to have a lot of dolars-singles in your wallet! The all inclusive drinks are not strong at all, so you have to beg them for a better shot if you want something stronger! (Get tips ready for it)! Food is ok! Both restaurants repeats the menu almost every day! (Not very local food, they respect american taste too much in there)! They charge US$ 7 per day and per advice for WIFI... And doesn't work well in all areas at all! Very expensive for the poor service, should be free as all other resorts around offers... The gym wasn't open, closed in construction! They have poor entertnmeint in there, they should AT LEAST to put music at the pools... We are happy on vacation, we just need the hotel to keep that vibe! (We saw other hotels making parties at the beach, with loud music and we got jealous! Flamingo should do the same by the way)! Cancun is amazing, and we want to go back! We did like Flamingo, they are good but they have the potential to be even better! Thank you! Carla Portella

Great for the price

Everything was great. The staff, food , drinks were great. The food was good, you do have to go to the steak restaurant at night. Make your reservations the day before seating is limited.

Family vacation

Not a good experience!. The room assigned to us was located in the second floor right in front the swimming pool; there was a lot of noise even during night time, from the pool, and from the main street outside. Our room was somewhat connected to the room next to us and only it was only divided by a regular room door; as a result we were able to hear our neighbor's conversations and the noise produced by their TV set. When I brought these concerns to the staff at the front desk, I was told that they were going to switch us to another room and that never happened during the whole week we stayed there!. This was not a good hotel experience at all ands I will definitely not recommend to my friends and/or relatives.

Great Value and Great place

Very good location with a wonderful beach front. Almost all the staff is bilingual. We opted to do the all inclusive option and were not disappointed. Several of the reviews I read prior to going were critical of the food selection, with the exception of breakfast I never felt that way. The Albatross restaurant was exceptional, I had the best stake of my life there! The room temperature was set perfect and the rooms themselves were clean and nice, not extravagant by any means, but clean and nice. Would recommend this place to stay at. Good value for the money.

Hotel was clean. Food was not that good. Normal alcohol like Jim beam is a premium.

Very boring!

I know you get what you pay, so my recommendation is pay! Before I arrived at the hotel, I called from back home to ask their policy on having visitors at the hotel/room. They said it's fine, I can pay a certain amount for a day pass. When my visitor got there, they gave me all kinds of policies and said the only way to get them in was to pay for their stay (in my room) for which they wanted to charge me 4 times what I paid for myself. The guy was very rude too. The hotel really wants to be an all-inclusive resort but than tries to do everything possible to limit their expenses. I gave a one star for the location because the lounge chairs were uncomfortable and there was no service on the beach. Cannot go shirtless or shoeless to the nearby restaurant to get your drink either. They try to make you as uncomfortable as possible. The pool with the bar is inside the hotel surrounded closely by rooms. The atmosphere was not relaxing. The staff wanted to constantly check the wristband although I don't see why anybody would try to sneek in that hotel. Most people were trying to sneek out. Felt like a retirement home.

Generally OK

I said it's OK instead of good, because every area it's just a 3 star hotel. And wifi is expensive, cost 7USD a day.
