We rented one area with two big beds inside to get a high (low-season) cost from the 2nd week of June. The resort appeared to have few other guests around, but those who were there were favorable. We also rented a car and managed to park within a two block radius daily, but I could imagine how busy this area has to maintain high season.
I genuinely feel as though we had a far different experience of town since we were just over the primary tourist destination and could go even further out to the local regions of city for great tacos and supper on the nights we did not eat in walking distance. Beautiful Uruguayan restaurant next door in addition to an excellent bakery, ideal for snagging a 1-2 pastry before dawn dives.
Since we had been diving we did not drink much, but Ivan’s margaritas are mythical – multiple individuals had been staying there. We want to try the snorkeling tours in cozumel the staff suggested. Additionally, I discovered the 24/7 reception to be useful, and we could leave our keys, so neither of us was locked out of this space, we were on various dip programs.
Should you remain here and also have a vehicle, do take a while to drive southeast of the island beyond Punto Sur and learn more about the windward side. I invested a lot of downtimes there since it was close my dive center, but my friend whose dip boat was in the marina just got to watch El Mirador on the previous day once I brought him out there.
The Flamingo is a well-run little hotel that was precisely what I was searching for – a secure, comfy room with a few island flair nearby downtown. While not elegant or luxury, the rooms were comfy and inviting. The only drawback was a local dog that begins barking several early mornings (which cannot be assisted from the resort ). The staff was great to socialize with too. I will definitely plan to return.
My husband likes to dive the place enables me to walk around the trunk areas in serenity, avoiding the sometimes excruciating vendors once I feel like getting out. Additionally, it is conveniently located to a range of several excellent restaurants as well as the Plaza.
Breakfast was delicious and served fast, letting my husband escape by 7:30 a.m. I really like the fresh fruit dish. It is lovely to have the ability to quit at the pub evenings after returning to this resort after dinner, have some drinks, and fulfill a number of additional guests. Both Ivan and Oscar are all fantastic sources of advice.
