Flamingo Beach Resort is a beautiful facility located in the Guanacaste area in northwest Costa Rica along the Pacific coast. As you step into the open hotel lobby your eyes go to the amazing view looking down onto the pools and directly out to the ocean. Wonderful staff, comfortable rooms and outstanding food at the Arenas Restaurant.

We spent the last three nights of our week-plus tour of Costa Rica at the Flamingo, after spending much of it in the rainforest. We arrived with plenty of damp or wet clothes from our previous adventures, and we were dried out in no time in the glorious sunny weather of the coast. While our stay at the Flamingo wasn't...

We stayed for about one week and loved it, the staff is very friendly and the food is very good. The pool area is very nice and enjoyed a lot the beach just crossing the street, the water temperature was perfect for us, the hotel was recommended by IAT Costa Rica and they were right to send us there.

After listening to traveler comments in Arenal, Monteverde, and Nosara, we began second guessing our selection of Playa Flamingo rather than a spot in Tamarindo. However upon arrival, we quickly confirmed the validity of our decision. Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa has a one of a kind location with direct beach access...great surf for swimming, boogie boarding or walking. We... More

We went for our honeymoon. It was amazing. Close to a lot of fun attractions. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. Even the maids were great. We went on the catamaran and went snorkeling. It was fantastic. The lady at the concierge desk, Floyra, was incredible and set us up with wonderful adventures. ATV rides, boat rides... More

We just returned from our first trip to Costa Rica and were blown away by the country and this hotel. It was a great value for the cost and was the perfect setting - on the beach, with a great pool. We had a pool view room on the shady side, so we were able to sit out on our... More

This small resort has lovely rooms, a nice pool and a beautiful beach. Sunsets are fabulous and beach walking is tops. The food in the all inclusive package was quite good. Option of eating off of the buffet, ordering from the menu or combining both. . Staff is excellent, very friendly and accommodating. No blasting music at the pool, no... More

This resort is somewhat a dream. With a beachfront steps away from the hotel, and a pool overlooking the beach, I couldn't have been more in heaven. Which do we do first, beach or pool? This is the question we found ourselves asking. The beach is perfect, with white sand and bathtub temperature waters. The sunset is almost perfect here.... More

Generally I inspect hotels for a living so you would think after a while it gets tiresome? Once in a while you find onbe so pleasant and fun that you don`t want to leave!
