Costa Rica

We stayed at 2 different hotels in Costa Rica and this was somewhat of a let down. The food was limited and wifi was horrible. Maybe they have better rooms, but we didn't get one. I would not stay here again.

Awesome Location

The hotel met our expectations in terms of cleanliness, ease of access to nearby attractions, and for being pretty much right on the beach. Other reviews talk about crossing a road to get to the beach, it's more like crossing a two foot path. You ARE on the beach and one of the nicest beaches in costa rica for sure. The pool and restaurant food was pretty good. The vibe is nice here, we noticed mostly a family/older crowd. Beakfast got monotonous but what else could we expect. It was filling and did the trick and definitely the best deal as the full all-inclusive I don't think it worth it. What we didn't appreciate was some services lacking that we usually expect when staying at an all inclusive: we didn't notice many of the activities mentioned on the website happening. There's no beach volleyball there's a sad little net across a sad little second pool behind one building, when we finally had time to use the beach towel service the service window was either closed for lunch or closed early making it more of an inconvenience than a luxury and the main desk won't help you during the supposed service window hours. There was also some sort of issue with us asking for breakfast to be packed on the days we would have to leave for touring trips before breakfast started. When we checked in the front desk said it was a non-issue just let them know the night before. The first time this work the second time we got a call from the office saying we had to order/pick-up from a different location. We said this was fine. When we picked up our breakfast the next morning staff informed us if we had to do this again we would have to speak to the manager. Suffice it to say we just skipped the hassel and left it alone the morning we went to the airport. So no breakfast for us that day. If you get this for a good price location and access make it okay to stay at but don't expect a full all-inclusive experience.

Beautiful Quaint Resort

We loved this resort and definitely would go back. The resort is right on the beach. The pool is gorgeous and super clean. Loved the swim up bar. The breakfast was just ok. However the salads are amazing, as well as the entrees and desserts. As for the vegetables, they are grown on their own organic farm, which is cool. The service was outstanding.

Stay here

Don't expect Mexico resort style convenience and you'll be just fine, but most people that travel to Costa Rica tend to be adventurous and don't plan on staying at the resort anyways. The location is good for diving the Catalina's some zip lining, horse riding, jet skiing and atving. About an hours drive to tamarindo for surfing. Water pressure is low in the shower but aside from that, no notable negatives. The pool is clean and the grounds are well maintained. The food is decent but not worth getting the all inclusive Hope that helps I traveled with my wife and 2 kids3/4

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Tubla for Italian and coconut beach for seafood was my choices. Just across the street is Marie's for decent food as well if the resort food doesn't meet your needs. Lots of restaurants are closed during the low season

Great All-inclusive deal

I stayed at the resort for a destination wedding for 4 days. Booked a double and was given a king, so before I arrived, friend asked them to move us to a double, which turned out to be a handicap room. We kept the room simply bc it overlooked the pool. Beds were really comfortable, but showering without a tub made for a flooded bathroom. (Definitely not a wise idea to blow dry your hair after showering). Bar/waitstaff were great, unless you had one of the young kids pouring drinks. In that case, drinks were less than a shot of liquor. Good was great. Beach was right there, only problem, there were no beach chairs available. Most amazing sunsets I've ever seen. I'd definitely recommend this place!

family getaway

We enjoyed our stay very much. This isn't a place if you are looking for nightlife but a place for a quiet romantic getaway or for families. The resort set up a lot of excursions that are affordable and the beach is right across from the resort. One thing is that this hotel is on the pacific side fyi so the waves are a little bit stronger than if on the caribbean side. The rooms with a balcony are on the smaller side but offer a great view and very clean. The food I would say varies and is average. There are a few restaurants in walking distance to change it up a bit. The best part was probably the pool bar and the awesome bartenders manolo, leo, elias to name a few that became part of the family and extremely entertaining. Pool bar is open to 6 and then there is an open air restaraunt and bar that opens at 6 and alberto is great as well. This is a small resort so you feel like you know everyone and we met a lot of people, some that even knew the same people as us. It was great and just what we needed!

Wonderful family vacation

We can't speak highly enough about the wonderful time we had at the resort. The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The pools and rooms were clean. The food was delicious. The wait staff were very attentive. The beach was clean and the best in the area. Without a doubt, would recommend Flamingo beach resort!

Met expectations, had a great week

I read reviews before booking and found most to be right on, except for the real negative ones, disregard them. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach,but advise the ocean is not for non-swimmers. The hotel staff was great (courteous and prompt) and able to help english only guests better than we have encountered before. We found the food to be excellent, would advise non or light drinkers to not choose the all inclusive option, otherwise it would probably be better. There are no shows or entertainment, and tours are a bit costly, as reviewers have noted. I would suggest the hotel support some local musicians and have occcasional performers. We would definitely go back to Flamingo beach, especially if a deal came available.
