4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Flamingo is a quiet beach north of all the hubbub of Tamarindo and that ilk. The resort has three sections, a center lobby/gym/rec area, and two buildings for rooms. The rooms are small but well kept with great A/C. The pool is a perfect temperature and the beach is just a stones throw away. The on-site dining is so-so, but... More

The restaurant is near the pool and the food was really good. The beach is right across the street and very nice. There are no... More

You sit by the pool and only hear meditative music nothing upbeat or entertaining . Only one restaurant in which to eat in. There is absolutely no the nightlife for entertainment. There is... More

I searched and searched for a Costa Rican hotel with traditional Costa Rican food and not an "all-inclusive international style menu/resort". So for the second time, I chose Playa Flamingo! Their excellent service and personnel could not be replaced. Public areas were clean. Our room was perfect! My husband and I felt welcome here. All staff were friendly and more... More

We stayed at the Flamingo Beach resort with our two young children (6 and 7 years old). We chose the resort as we wanted to be close to the beach and we were looking for family friendly amenities. The pool area is fantastic and the kiddie pool is huge and shaded! We had a second floor room overlooking the pool... More

It's very disheartening to read such a negative review, but we do appreciate your feedback and will use your comments to strive to do better. We are a bit puzzled about your comment regarding the menu being "American fried food" because the only fried food we really offer is on our Kid's Menu; our menu always features fresh grilled fish,...

I spent a week at the flamingo beach resort celebrating my college graduation, and I must say it was top notch. The staff were so friendly and Sergio at the desk was more than helpful! We used the dive operation there and had a truly memorable experience, thanks to Joe, Risky, Jess, and Juan! Also did a few land tours,... More
