Everyone here is spectacular. You must meet Karla, Elias, Glenda, and if you're so inclined...Manuel. The food is not particularly fantastic, but watch out if Elias makes you a drink! Order a caparena and you'll be hooked! Spectacular views and the beach is just as fantastic as all the reviews say. Plan to leave the resort for a tour, we HIGHLY suggest Javier Vargas Morales. He's not associated with the hotel, and that's probably to his credit. Pacific Coast Diving has poor customer service and the excursions are disappointing. Javier's trips are unique and his knowledge of the area is exhaustive. He makes a personal connection with his guests and we spent our entire week hanging out with Javier and his driver Carlos (Uncle Charlie). Contact Javier and Carlos at ph. 8386-5414. We have high hopes for the food and beverage director, he seemed to be making improvements from day 1. Angelina's (across the street) has amazing cuisine. The ambiance and menu can't be beat for the value in Playa Flamingo.
WARNING! "All inclusive" is misleading. Be sure that you can prove EXACTLY what your rate includes. Upon arrival the resort enformed us that we had not purchased an all inclusive package and that the name of the resort is in fact "Playa Flamingo All Inclusive Resort." We were able to contact Hotwire and clarify the package that we had purchased (which was in fact all inclusive), but many of the guests we met at the resort had not been so fortunate. Read your confirmation very carefully, you will need to prove that you purchased an all inclusive trip.
