We loved the view, beach and accessibility to go kayaking around a nearby island. We enjoyed all the iguanas everywhere and being able to walk to a few interesting places on our own. Took advantage of a snorkelling excursion onsite ... even though the owner is obviously a Scuba-snob and was not accomadating to our schedule even though the hotel... More

In February 2014, we spent time at Playa Flamingo and loved the gorgeous white sand beach and warm waters. Our one bedroom suite had been totally updated with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and lots of pots/dishes, two gorgeous bathrooms with the glass (updated) showers. There was air conditioning in each room and a beautiful balcony overlooking the bay.... More

Going to flamingo it's a great decision, it's a beautiful beach, but the Marina Hotel it's not that good. The hotel hotel it's very well located, and has an amazing view of the beach, but the infrastructure and the furniture are very old, and looks like they haven't had much maintenance. The rooms are very spacious to fit a family... More

The hotel is very well located in flamingo beach, The view of the rooms are amazing, and there is a lot of space. But the building and the furniture look like they belong in the 70's and they haven't had maintenance since. It's very old. The service wasn't good, wasn't bad.. They didn't paid us much attention.

I'm guest at this hotel for Eastern week being the first time I was visiting Flamingo. When we arrived the room it was dirty. The microwave, kitchen and bathrooms dirty as if they were not cleaned after the last guest checked out. Besides that, I specifically asked for a futon for my kids and they didn't prepare it. The outside... More

The location of unit #603 Flamingo Marina Resort on the beautiful bay side beach was great but the condo was in need of a serious upgrade and the lawn chairs were terrible. The area was quieter and much classier than Tamarindo but someone could have told us that it was 30km away from Tamarindo. We had 3 coffee mugs and... More

We rented a condo at the Flamingo Marina resort from Special Places, Costa Rica property management company. It was so easy. I sent an email, they responded with details on how to rent it and I followed the instructions. We had room 205 which had a private balcony with an unobstructed view of the ocean; no rooms or buildings looked... More

We discovered the FMR via a search for Costa Rica condos on VRBO. Unit 411 popped up and instantly fit the bill. While in the same complex as FMR it is managed privately through SeaView Rentals, who we highly recommend working with on your trip. The Unit: Unit 411 is an upstairs, beach view unit with 2 average sized bedrooms,... More

We arrived Oct. 18 - 25 with our Interval Exchange. It was dark when we arrived at 7pm and Louis was at the reception. He acted like we ruined his day by showing up, I made reservations 8 months ago! He sent us off to a room with a very nice guy that spoke NO English. The whole place was... More

We stayed in late January 2013 and are going again in February 2014 because we enjoyed it so much. Playa Flamingo Resort is not one of those all-inclusives so-to-speak and in fact, that's a good thing for my wife and I at least. since we prefer to "go native" as much as possible. We rented a condo here via "Special... More
