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.

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.

Great Staff

We recently stayed at the Flamingo Resort and Spa. The hotel didn't have anything that really set it apart from others EXCEPT the staff. They were friendly and accomodating and made you feel very comfortable. The staff would recognize you and go out of their way to meet any of your needs. Overall, the hotel was clean and had very good restaurants nearby. Unfortunately, there was not many other things nearby.

Excellent Value

All of the Flamingo Resort staff were super. They had great suggestions for off-site dining and transportation to get there. The opportunities to book various excursions was fantastic. We booked three excurision on three different days. They were all as described and very affordable. The only problem we encountered during our six day stay was one night in the resort restaurant they were out of steak. What a disappointment. However, our second choices were superb. The pool and swim bar were great.

Nice Hotel

The hotel is very nice but kind of far from nightlife if you aren't planning on renting a car. The taxi's basically rob you; charging you $35-$40 to get to Tamarindo (the center of all the nightlife in this part of Costa Rica). There are a few restaurants outside of the hotel that are good but other than that not very much. The staff is very helpful and accomodating. We asked for a room change b/c our airconditioner was broken and were able to move to another room across the hall without any problems. The guest rooms are nicer than the studio's so don't bother upgrading. On another note about the staff, don't ask them for dinner recommendations. They will all send you to this place called Camerones Dorado. The food is okay but the service is slow. They send you there b/c the hotel gets some sort of commission. Do other research before you go to find out about good places to eat. Many are in Tamarindo. By the hotel, Amberes and Marie's is pretty good. The gym at the hotel is a joke. The food at the hotel is horrendous. Those would be my only two complaints. Otherwise, like I mentioned, the guest rooms are clean and really nice. The pool is a good size and the beach is right in front of the hotel. Don't listen to people who complain about having to cross the street. The hotel is right there. The area in general looked very safe. It's not the most developed part of Costa Rica but it's a great location if you plan on doing excursions. Most are only 2-3 hours away. Also, after adjusting to it, it was kind of nice to be in an underdeveloped area. Wherever we went you were able to mingle with other travelers and locals
