Acapulco Hotels

Los Flamingos


  • History is intriguing
  • Epic views


  • A little wear and tear in rooms
  • Bathrooms need updating

Fodor's Review

This hot-pink, cliff-side hotel was a favorite hangout of co-owners John Wayne and Johnny ("Tarzan") Weissmuller. A young busboy at the hotel in those days, Adolfo Santiago, is now the owner. He plays an amazing guitar and, if in the mood, will share some good stories. Today Los Flamingos draws an international clientele for its fine views and its coco locos, tequila drinks served in a green coconut. Rooms have bright pink walls and spartan, shower-only baths. Weissmuller liked to stay in the circular two-bedroom master suite. The hotel provides free transportation to the beach and downtown.
