Travel Blogs from Cozumel
Awww, back in Akumal tonight and catching up with all my blogs. It was so great to be welcomed home to waves crashing ashore, turtles popping up their heads and a big place! Love it here. Especially, after being in Cruise ship mania.
When I'm in Playa del Carmen I always wonder whats that glitzy world with all the lights doing on the other …
Después de un día volando llego a Cancún. El lugar donde estuve es una hilera de Hoteles a cada cual más grande puestos encima de la playa. Aprovecho para quedarme unos días y visitar algunos lugares de la península de Yucatán: La isla de Cozumel: una vuelta por la isla en moto, un baño y poco más. La parte más bonita se encuentra en la zonz …
... center as well as a pilgrimage destination of the Mayan women, who came from all over the mainland to honor the Mayan goddess of fertility, medicine and weaving Ixchel.
Funny, we liked seeing the ruins but what we enjoyed looking at the most were the iguanas. There were tons of them walking around and sun bathing on the stones. I took tons of pictures of them - seemed as though they were posing for me. (lol)
Perhaps hiring a beat-up car without a working handbrake wasn't such a good idea. To be honest it didn't exactly seem the best plan at the time either but as we run onto the highway to stop a multiple pile-up we're cursing our impetuous choice of rental car agreement. And it had all started so well! Wind back a few hours and we get up nice and early and make our way down to the ferry port next to our hotel for the 8am crossing. After all, we've been watching ...
... me loads of tips on where to eat cheaply and where's good to snorkel on the island. I once again walked to this hotel where there is a wall of coral, it was meant to be 3km, I thought that didn't seem far. It was far, and actually 4km in like 90% humidity, arg! Thank GOD it was cloudy! The hotel, once I arrived, was super nice. The snorkelling was pretty awesome and it was literally just off some stairs, easy! Lack of sun again, go away clouds! There was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Flamingo Hotel Cozumel
Thanks for a nice time
we had a great time at hotel flamingo. the owner, tom, was very helpfull with organizing my dive trips. check out the roof terrace, it is lovely to sit there with a corona and enjoy the sunset. maybe if you are lucky you get a ride in tom's lovely old vw beetle convertible.
Quaint to the Max
Something about this place makes you immediately feel laid back and ready to have a great time in Cozumel. The friendly staff seem to stay out of sight until you need something and then they accommodate your request almost 'before' you ask. This was our first trip devoted to Scuba Diving so, we really appreciated the relaxed atmosphere. The delicious food and drink was enjoyed by both tourists and the locals who frequent the hotel. The owner, Tom, discussed his plans to refurbish the hotel. My advice was to never lose the quaint charm this hotel offers. We're already talking about returning to our new friends at the Flamingo.
I recently stayed at the flamingo and amazed at the changes since I was there 5 years ago. I guess the owner has been making some more improvements and in addition to the great bar, there is now a full restaurant. The food was excellent with the mango shrimp being my favorite. The service was top notch and the staff was very friendly. They also had internet service available and laundry service which was nice. It is downtown on a quiet street near the waterfront. I understand from the management that they are in the process of upgrading the rooms more to a 3 or 4 star rating and that a pool will be going in later in the year. I was very happy overall with the stay.
Hotel Flamingo - Best spot in town!
Chose the Hotel Flamingo for a dive vacation for April vacation with my 15yr. old son based on price and reviews from this site.
What a great choice, the Hotel is convenient, quiet, affordable place to sleep while your diving from 7:30 - 4:30 everyday.
Restaurant is great, bartender is the best, and the owner and staff will bend over backwards to help you make the right decisions during your stay.
The Penthouse sweet is a great get a way!!!
A very quiet place near the plazza (5min with foot).
Far from the tourist agitation of downtown area. personal are sympatic and give good councils. Very nice bar where you can meet globe-trotters or divers. Tom, the owner is a diver and he advised me to dive with Sergio. It was a very good choice. I also advise it to you (very secure, ecologist and lover of his island and sea) Rooms are comfortable. Very good quality-price ratio.
Will stay here every time!!!!
Great price, clean rooms, best service in cozumel. Kelly Mattheis the hotel manager was one of the nicest and most helpful people we met on vacation. We spent two weeks in cozumel one at Allegro Cozumel by Occidental and it was one of the worst places I've ever stayed and the second week at the flamingo and will go back every time.
This hotel is comfortable. It is small and it is very friendly. New matresses, great restaurant with a good ribeye steak and a shrimp dinner that is very delicious. The top is available for watching great sunsets or day time sun bathing. I really like the general friendly environment. I think it starts with the owner, Tom, from the USA. The lobby is an oasis in Cozumel. Great coffee, food, music, bar and nice people. This is my home away from home. I'll be back soon.
The Flamingo was a nice surprise...a quiet respite from the bustle of downtown cozumel. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful with answering any questions I had. The food in the new restaurant is great and reasonable. They serve a great dinner with seafood and there is live cuban music on the weekends. I loved the location, very near everything, but in a quiet spot. Over all, I was very impressed and I understand that they are doing more improvements to the property this summer to make it even better.
I stayed at the Hotel Flamingo from October 17- 30, 2003 and enjoyed it very much. The things I liked about the hotel were:
Our first trip to Cozumel was wonderful! When I wrote to several hotels asking about prices Tom (the owner) e-mailed me back within an hour. He was the olny one to reply! He offered advise on what to see and do while we were down there visiting. The hotel is cozy and beautiful! The rooftop offers an amazing view of the ocean. At sunrise and sunset you can get the 'postcard picture' everyone wants! The staff very friendly and always smiling. Breakfast (waffles) was wonderful, margaritas (by Julian) were YUMMY! Laura, Desire, Carmen, Jose, Julian, and Tom made our first trip to Mexico unforgettable! When we go back we will not stay anywhere but here!
