Playa Flamingo is a nice resort. More family oriented, but not much around. It is kinda a stand alone place. The swim up bar closes at 6:00. The restaurant and other bar is 10:30. The restaurant for breakfast was good. Nothing to do in Playa Flamingo after dark. The roads arent great. You dont want to drive much after dark... More

I've had the pleasure of experiencing numerous beaches in Costa Rica and this my all-around favorite. I actually got married here. Make sure you visit at a time of year when the weather is nice (dry) and you're sure to have a good time. The beach is very nice and usually pretty quiet; allowing you to get away with playing...

My boyfriend and I visited Playa Flamingo as part of a tour of Costa Rica. The resort is beautiful and very relaxing. Staff and service was great, very attentive without ring intrusive, the resort is very clean and rooms comfortable and spacious. We were at the resort for four days and didn't once leave! Except to see the sunset at... More

Situated at approximately 10 Meters from the very nice beach this Hotel complex has everything you expect from a 4 Star establishment. Nice looking Pool area, well sized rooms, Casino, Fitness Centre, Game Centre etc... Breakfast buffet was also a delight but unfortunately the “à la carte” dinner was a bit disappointing. The taste was great, but the quantity was... More

We had a great time at Flamingo Beach in April 2013. The staff were very friendly and our room was fantastic (Honeymoon suite). Some of the plumbing needed upgrading but I understand that is underway. The little village has a few restaurants within walking distance. Will definitely be back to this beautiful location. The Cubano sandwich in the bar can't... More

The rooms were nice, we had a pool view room. We had went there with a breakfast plan but were convinced by management to change to an all inclusive plan. It might have been cheaper do book this in advanced but it was worth it. We did not find much to do in the city of Playa Flamingo so your... More

we had a wonderful experience here! the location is beautiful, the beach had soft sand and warm clear blue water. The service staff always greeted you with a smile and a hello. The servers in the restaurant are very personable and genuinely cared for their customers. We had great service from Rosaura, Tashany, William, Olger, Orlando, Carlos, Rocio and Elias)... More

Nice location, beautiful beach. Staff friendly, upgraded to ocean view room at check-in. Lucky for us the first floor was being renovated so we had to move up. Breakfast included and decent. Coffee delicious and you can order omelets, eggs, french toast, pancakes fresh from the kitchen. Nice pool area, clean and warm. No waiter service at pool you had... More

Nice resort with good beach access directly from the hotel. Just cross the dirt road and you’re there. Upon check-in, we were outfitted with fluorescent pink scratchy plastic wristbands identifying us as hotel guests. They did put them on loosely but the edges were very scratchy and on more than one occasion at night, one of us would accidentally scratch... More

Thank you very much for your feedback, it was truly a gift. While your comments on your room and the hotel's location were gratifying, your review of the service you received while on property upset and embarrassed me. Our staff was immediately called to task for their lack of attention to your needs. There was a frank and open discussion... More

We stayed a week in October when it was slow season. The weather was warm and it didn't even rain everyday. We met a local named Minor with major tours. Meeting him was the best thing that happened on our trip. He sits out back with his little dog and can set up any excursion for you. We had so... More
