We were in San Blas for the holidays. I had stayed at the Hacienda Flamingos 30 years ago and loved it then, so I had to go back. It has been restored now and is beautiful. It is truly an extraordinary experience to stay in a building with so much history and beauty. We had rooms Catarino and Alejandro which had terraces and hammocks outside on the pool side of the building. These rooms were really wonderful and worth any extra cost.My teenage sons spent hours looking at the wonderful coffee table books available everywhere in the courtyard. They told about everything from Mexican history to art. Who would of thought my family would spend hours sitting the the courtyard looking at art books? The atmosphere is so elegant, relaxed and unique. Each family member from teenager to adult loved it. You will not find another hotel like it. To visit San Blas and not spend at least one night here would be a tragedy. Their web site in no way portrays how lovely and extraordinary it is. It was built in 1863 and served as a German consulate for many years before becoming a hotel. We also found the restaurant to be very good and just as affordable as the other places in town. The location is also perfect, being only a couple of blocks from the city center and also close to where the fishing boats come in. Saturday there is a market right around the corner. I can't say enough good things about our experience at Hacienda Flamingos.
