We are retired in Costa Rica. When we have guests that want to go to the beach this where we go. We call Flamingo Beach an adult beach, meaning there are not always a bunch of loud drunks and college kids around, making noise all night long. The beach is just what a couple likes to walk on and swim... More

I stood here last month for 5 days. It was my first time going to Costa Rica and I wasn't sure what to expect but I immediately I fell in love with the resort! We did the all inclusive package and it was so well worth it especially when in the pool all day drinking. The hotel staff everywhere in... More

The hotel has 120 rooms on three levels. The first level is below grade. My entire family & I stayed here at the end of June. We had a family suite on the 2nd floor level (2212). The room had a tile floor, 2 double beds, a pull out sofa, refrigerator, microwave, a little kitchenette with a sink and 3... More

Very nice stay. We had a room that had 2 full beds, a couch that made into a pull out bed, table and a mini kitchen. The room was a nice size. The pool was really big and nice. Really liked the swim up bar. We did the all inclusive for 2 days and if you plan on staying there... More

I recently stayed here for one night only during a transition from a house we rented and getting back to San Jose. Hotel is nice. Great pool! Right across the street (very little street) from the beach. The beach had great waves and a lot of fun but most people stayed at the pool. The food wasn't that great, only... More

Friendly enough, though prejudice is just there. I actually found myself going out of my way to avoid the desk staff on a recent two week vacation with my oldest son and just graduating senior. TAM adventures and outings were fantastic and nearby restaurants were wonderful to dine at with great affordable food at Marie's. The casino they advertise is... More

My husband and I recently spent 6 days at the Flamingo Beach Resort. This was our first visit to Costa Rica, and we were hoping that we made a good choice, and boy did we! First of all, the location of this resort is just perfect. From the lobby, you can look out across the pool and past the restaurant... More

Stayed here for five days and enjoyed every minute of it. The pool were beautiful with a very convenient poolside bar. Service and food were great. I recommend the Carolina fish tacos (I think that's what they're called) and the green monsters are overly refreshing...

When I first arrived, I almost cried at how beautiful it was!! I'd never stayed at a hotel, literally steps from the beach! My room was very nice (although I was hardly in it), but the water pressure for the shower was great (an potential deal breaker for me), and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were super friendly,... More
