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

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

Wife and I opted for the all inclusive plan and were not let down at all. Cesar met us at the front desk and started our great experience. Room was nice, basic, but clean and refreshing. The staff was more then helpful and always had a smile and "pura vida" for you. Drinks... Elias is a master, just ask and... More

We have been coming to this hotel for many many years. We are fractional share holders. The layout, the play room with pool n foosball n ping pong, the tennis courts, the incredibly gorgeous beach with perfect body "womping" waves, etc etc., all wonderful. BUT, it's time. The rooms need paint, especially the bathrooms. If you're going to temporarily put... More

Comfortable room w/kitchenette perfect for eating breakfast & making coffee in the morning. Good restaurants within walking distance of hotel. Beach and pool steps away from room. Great place to relax and enjoy the sun, beach and listen to music and read. Not much night life, but plenty of activities like water sports or night tours to watch sea turtles... More

The hotel was great and amazingly clean but a bit remote. Long ride from the airport. Although it was an all inclusive we only opted for the breakfast plan which was reasonably priced and the food was good. We did have a lite dinner also good and reasonably priced. Beach was cute and the pool spotless!

We visited Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa when grandma was visiting us at the end of August and were very fortunate in many ways with this resort. First of all we got a great deal on the Presidential/Master Suite so we had tons of space and the little recreational pool right in front of our terraces (the bad news with... More

The beach itself is great, we chose it because it was more quiet and peaceful then some of the more popular beaches, and we were right, its a small beach with only a few hotels/resorts and great sand and tranquil ocean (safe for young kids). There aren't many choices here for hotels, so this probably is the best one. That... More

Thank you for your review. First, we would like to counter that our price point is actually very reasonable among Costa Rica resorts, and I personally don't know of too many places in the world where you can stay steps away from the ocean, with lots of amenities, on a beautiful beach and pay less than $100 per night. I... More

My husband and I spent the first few days of our Honeymoon at Flaming Beach, and we had the best time. The food is delicious, we especially loved the breakfasts each morning. The daily two for one happy hour was great - the drinks were strong and delicious! The pool is beautiful, but the beach was our very favorite part... More
