We have a time share here and are here almost every year, and I have never had a complaint. The service has been quick and efficient, pleasant people and over all this is the cleanest place I have ever stayed. I think that the only comment that I have is that the drinks and the food are a little pricey... More

This was our first time to Costa Rica. Had a wonderful time. We had a family suite. There were two balconies, each with a fantastic view. We did not purchase the all inclusive plan. We did have the breakfast plan. It was delicious, definitely worth the money. There were several restaurants nearby for dinner, all within walking distance. Also, shops... More

They don't... More

This hotel completely met our expectations. Having read the reviews, we knew there was only one restaurant and we knew that the drinks would be expensive. We opted for the Breakfast plan which was perfect. Going all-inclusive at a place with only one restaurant seemed ridiculous. We were very happy with our choice. There are many restaurants within easy walking... More

Our first visit to Costa Rica and he whole family loved it. Clean facility, friendly staff, great food (and lots of it). The beach was clean and plenty of space we never felt crowded. Plenty of close by restaurants within walking distance, very relaxing atmosphere, plenty to do during the day if you cant sit still and relax, boat trips,... More

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this hotel. The beds were clean, the pool was clean and the food was very good! There were many restaurants in the area. Three were in the area and two other were close but not walkable, but the restaurants provided transportation. The sea star was an awesome restaurant along with Coco Loco. The beach... More

I wanted to plan a vacation that would be enjoyable for my husband, 3 kids (ages 9, 6, and 3), and me. When looking for places to stay in Costa Rica, Flamingo Resort came to fit our needs and budget for an 8-day trip. When we arrived, the front desk was so accommodating after a long red-eye flight from Los... More

We loved the location right on the beach. It was great to be able to watch the sun set during dinner - though the sun sets so early that we needed to get to the restaurant right at opening at 6pm if we wanted to eat at sunset. The pool was fantastic - it's shallow enough that our 8 and... More

It was a very clean hotel, very friendly staff and the food was amazing! The pool had its own bar and the bar tenders were great. Beautiful hotel. It was on the beach and the water was crystal clear once you got past the waves.

This hotel earns 5 stars as far as Costa Rican hotels go. Definitely a lot of Americans, but the pool was gorgeous and not too crowded (we visited in the green season though...fewer tourists in general). Clean rooms and very kind and helpful staff. The photographers were really funny and would do an entire photo shoot for your family for... More
