This place is not the "nicest" place to stay in this area but we still had a great time! The pool and beach were nice and clean. Drinks were cold and delicious. Food was decent. We had one issue with the jet ski rental place on the property but other than that we were taken good care of by the... More

The resort in itself is amazing! Comfortable beds, decent sized rooms, working aircon, fans and TV with cable. The resort restaurant had a few vegetarian options and you had to get creative for vegan options. Right across from the beach and access to some local restaurants. Also a swim up pool bar which does snacks too! Prices are quite high... More

Another incredible family vacation is in the books. From the horseback rides on the beach to the zip lining the snorkeling off the catamaran the sunset the food. Just incredible. The people and the culture of this beautiful country is something that should be shared with the world. We have never encountered a rude person in all the vacations we... More

My wife and I booked to stay at the Flamingo Resort in January 2015 for our much needed vacation, and to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and my 40th birthday early. We stayed a week with the Flamingo. We just got back home 2 weeks ago. Everything was great! We didn't know what to expect really, being that we... More

let me begin by saying GREAT PLACE TO VACATION! I had made a mistake in making the reservation though hotels.com and the currency conversion in which we made the payment, was to say the least, very confusing. With that, we nearly cancelled our reservation. I am very glad we didn't! BOOK DIRECTLY WITH THE HOTEL. Melissa in reservations and Sidney... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica. All hotel staff members were friendly, helpful and efficient. We had a ceiling fan on our balcony; it wasn't working and we told the woman who was cleaning our room. Within FIVE MINUTES a workman with a ladder showed up. He found the problem and fixed it while we sat and watched.... More

I can't begin to say how much fun we had in Costa Rica! The hotel and beach were lovely and we really enjoyed the all inclusive plan. The bartenders/staff (especially Harry) always took great care of us. Also Abi the hotel photographer is incredible! Only $8 per picture. I had our family do a photo shoot on the beach, which...

We had 5 relaxing days! The beach had soft sand and sometimes too strong surf but it was only a few steps from the hotel, literally. The sunsets were picturesque. It is great for families and couples enjoying chatter around the pool bar. We rented ATVs and indulged in several beautiful empty beaches. We drove to Tamarindo, a nearly artsy... More

My family and I visited the week of July 18 - 25. Our room was very comfortable and overlooked the pool. The beach is steps away and we had a wonderful time playing in the surf. It could be rough at times, but that's the ocean for you. The pool was great, especially the swim up bar. Food was ok.... More

We appreciate your kind feedback, especially the recognition of several of our hard-working staff members. In addition to our great bartenders, we also have some excellent bellman at the property, so we truly apologize that for some reason you did not receive their proper service. We also regret that you had issues with the mini-bar; we are seriously reevaluating our... More

Was hoping for an extra special 2 days with hubby. But was surrounded by screaming kids, we got constantly splashed while trying to enjoy pool side loungers and balls were being thrown everywhere - seemed like no adult supervision at a kids pool party. Staff was exceptional except Leo the big headed pool bar guy was rude and snarky. Drinks... More

Thank you for your comments. We deeply regret that your stay with us was not up to par and apologize for the issues that caused your dissatisfaction. While some of the negatives you mention are not quite within our control--e.g., other guests that do not properly supervise their children--in all of the areas that we can improve we will work...
