This is the second consecutive year we've stayed at this hotel in November in a Deluxe Suite (all-inclusive). It's a first class hotel with beautiful comfortanble rooms, eating facilities, grounds, and beach. The food and beverage manager, Augustine, and his whole staff make it clear their every effort is to make the guest's stay and experience the best possible. The food quality and service were both excellent, and the food options quite wide-ranging - something for every taste. We'll be back next year! RECOMMENDATION: when selecting the port from which to leave Cancun to Isla Mujeres, recommend Puerto Juarez, which we used last year. This year we used Tortuga Beach and it was more inconvenient in that the distance to/from the boat to land transportation at the port was longer and more difficult which is especially inconvenient during hot, cold, or rainy weather.

My husband and I booked a week at Xaloc to relax and unwind, which is exactly what we got. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, the location is amazing, and the accommodations were modest and clean. We will be back for sure!

We were pleasantly surprised by how new everything seemed. The room was perfect and as clean as could be. We had a lovely patio overlooking the plaza that was cooled with a nice breeze. We had dinner in the restaurant below the rooms and had a very enjoyable meal. Although the staff spoke limited english we were able to commuicatre well and we were treated very wel. Well worth the cost. I would be surprised if anyone would be disapointed.
"Great base for swimming with the whale sharks-beautiful and laid back"
We went to Isla Holbox for the first time to swim with the whale sharks. As a family on a budget, this trip was worth every penny. The hotel was beautiful and well built. It was in a quiet area of town and yet plenty close to walk to the plaza and the beach. The gardens were exceptional and the pool was a welcome treat after spending all day on a boat and in the salt water. We thought we might miss being right on the beach but didn't miss staying on the beach at all. The a/c worked great. Isla Holbox itself was better than we expected-very laid back and comfortable, kind of like our family. We hope to go back to Isla Holbox and would not hesitate to stay at Casa Barbara again.
Before arriving to Villas Flamingos, we thought that the pictures on the website were too good to be true. In fact, the resort and island are even more beautiful in person. From what we saw of the island, Villas Flamingos seems to be the nicest resort on the island. The beach is immaculate. The rooms are beautiful and have stunning views of the ocean. The staff is extremely helpful, even if you don't speak Spanish. And the food and drinks are excellent and reasonably priced. I cannot recommend this resort enough, and we will certainly be coming back in the near future.
