Great spot

The hotel staff was friendly and when we had trouble with our first room they switched us to a new one quickly (by costa rica standards) Practically on the beach and big pool with swim up bar.

There is a great italian restaurant that makes oven baked pizzas, huge glasses of wine and fresh salads about a 5 min drive to the right of the hotel. Ask the staff for the name but it is well worth the short drive. It is moderately priced for the tasty dinner we had.

Beware of Additional Fees

When I arrived at the hotel I was hit with additional charges for an extra guests. Normally when I travel its 2 ppl to a room but that is not the case here. In addition the staff person was very rude about the charges. And they always charge you more than advertised at the restaurants.

Decent

I would rate quite good in terms of service. The rooms could do with carpets or rags for more comfort and cleanliness of the floors. And the prices of food, drinks and other related items are excessive.

Loved it!

Amazing beach, good room, great pool and free breakfast. Great location - town is tiny but the beach is just so wonderful! The bathrooms could use an update to give an overall cleaner feeling, but the room was clean and comfy and large. Very safe and would live to come back here!

Not bad but not fantastic

There is only one restaurant, the big pool is dirty, and there are birds above the kid's pool and they defecate in It. The activities are boring and very few. The staff is helpful, but definitely I have been in better 4 star places than this.

Great for quiet relaxation

I enjoyed the stay. Staff was very helpful. I few things in the room did not work right, but they cased minor problems only and were fixed upon request. The food was good, but far from outstanding. The place is a bit isolated and to get there from the airport is expensive. Activities were good and the beach outstanding.

Dissapointed

This is not a 4 star hotel .Also you are in a very secluded beach area that has a small town about15 min walking distance away. But you do not want to go there. The room we stayed in was big and partial ocean view. The furniture was a little dated and banged up . No hangers in open closet area. Asked for hangers. They brought around 15 mismatched old wire hangers.The bathroom tile looked dirty because it was old and patched up. The shower leaked, had to put big towel on floor when showering. The beds were the best, nice linnens. Staff was nice. Overall resort needed some sprucing up. Also the city of tamarindo is 30 min away and it is ok. cab ride round trip $50. Stayed 2 nights. I am from southern California 10/15/12

Friends' getaway

Great location on Flamingo Beach. The staff and hotel cleanliness was very good. There is one main restaurant and the pool swim-up bar can also serve food & drinks. Breakfast was included, but get the all-inclusive if you plan on staying at the resort the entire time...it will pay for itself. The room with king bed was extremely spacious...a pleasant surprise! The town itself is very small and you will likely need transportation to get to any other beaches.

Angelina's or Marie's are very close and offer good food/drinks. If more on a budget, then try Mariner Inn.
