During the slow season here in Costa Rica - Sept to mid Nov - it can be hard to scare up a little fun. But not on Thursday nights at the restaurant of the Flamingo Beach Resort. Radio Dos, some would say Costa Rica's most popular rock radio station, broadcasts live from the 2nd level oceanfront palapa restaurant at this... More

So we just returned from our trip to CR. Wanted to share a few things to help fellow travelers! Pros- beds are super soft, beach was awesome for boogie boarding waves or just hanging out, photographer at sunset was great and very enthusiastic however pricey ($8 per photo but they will give you a disc with no copyright) happy hour...

The resort is very nice. The beach is beautiful. The staff and the food were great! The atmosphere wonderful. We just returned Saturday and I must say how much I miss it already. Minor from Major Tours really made our week! He sits outside of the resort with his little dog. He is very friendly and speaks very good English!... More

Be sure to ask for one of their nicer rooms. One could easily spend an entire, relaxing week here - watching the sunset from an elevated spot for La Hora Felice, enjoying the breakfast buffet with fresh, tropical fruit, etc., enjoy participating in numerous, organized around or in the pool activites, just relax in padded lounge chairs or in the...

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and to this beautiful resort! My daughter and I will definitely return next year around the same time, low season, September 11-18.

We stayed at this resort for 7 nights last week and had a wonderful time. Every single staff member is incredibly friendly and helpful. The pool and bar were perfect. The food in the restaurants was always very good. Our "pool view" room actually had a great view of both the ocean and the pool! (Or maybe we were upgraded... More

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. It is very true that there are many perks but also trade-offs for visiting a resort during the off-season. We hope the renovations didn't disturb you too much and it will enable us to offer a better product going forward. We very much hope that you do return with your kids in... More

I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel! We stayed there last week, during the rainy season, so there weren't many people at the hotel or on the tours we went on. It was awesome! I don't want to go anywhere during peak season ever again! :) All of the front desk staff were so friendly and... More

I really liked this hotel. I love to travel but this was my first time in Costa Rica. My friend made the reservations and chose not to get all inclusive (because he usually eats at nearby local bars/restaurants off resort property) but the restauarant at the resort (Arenas) was excellent! He even said (after the fact) that he wished he... More

We are very appreciative of your positive review of your recent stay with us, and very happy that you enjoyed the food (which is probably the area that gets criticized the most in any hotel).

This hotel is just in front of one of the most beautiful beaches in Guanacaste, Flamingo, which has white sand and amazing sunsets. The hotel it's literally in front of the beach, so a minute you are in the pool and the next one you are in the beach... that easy! From here you have also access to beaches like... More
