My husband and I just came back from our honeymoon and spent the entire week at Flamingo. The entire trip was amazing! Everyone at the resort was helpful and accommodating. It was never overly packed, and the beach being so close was definitely a bonus. The pool was a perfect temperature, the food at the restaurant was good, and the... More

My family and I stayed at a house in Guanacaste and decided to get a day pass at the Flamingo Resort. The day pass and drink package cost about $300 total for 5 of us (would be cheaper without a drink package which is optional). The pool was heated and super clean, the drinks were good, I would not recommend... More

I'm so glad this was our last stop in Costa Rica on our trip because nowhere else could've beat it. The beach out front was spectacular and private. The service was amazing and everyone was incredible friendly, helpful and happy. We were able to really relax here, especially thanks to the spa. Our experience was everything I could have hoped...

Lots of drunken Americans but accommodation very good. Buffet food is not very good more selection on the menu. Staff are very friendly and will do anything for you. Basement rooms overlook carpark with no balcony a little claustrophobic but the beach is beautiful

The resort is somewhat small, but neat and clean. The rooms were average, but comfortable. The pool area was very nice and the beach was just a few steps from the resort. The food was average, but plentiful, but there were several restaurants that you could take advantage of. A couple that were close, across the street, were Angelina's and... More

it was everything we expected. Very much an American resort. Lots of drunk Americans. The biggest complaint we had was the lack of inclusivity. There was no 24 hour food or mini bar service. Everything was extra. They need to learn to charge $20 more and make everyone not worry about anything 24 hours. I'd never recommend this place as... More

Great bang for your buck in Playa Flaming. The service was amazing, everyone was very friendly, talkative and helpful to help in any way. The pool area was great, large pool with a swim up bar. The beach area was nice, just across a walkway, soft sandy beaches. If you have children(which we dont) they have a small play area... More

This place has the best kids pool ever. Is is totally covered so no sun burn. Adults pool is also awesome with a swim up bar. The ocean is like bath water and was perfect for body surfing and snorkeling. Just depends what time of day you are in the ocean. We only ate breakfast at the resort and it... More
