This is my second time staying at this property. I love the location across from the beach. The pool is huge and there is a bar with stools in the water. We did the meal plane and the food was wonderful. The room were very clean. The front desk was very helpful and bi-lingual. The desk near the pool area...

Initially we were given a room on the ground floor which had a musty smell. After complaining we were upgraded to the 3rd floor and a much better room. My husband is a tall man and we are accustomed to a Queen to King sized bed. This room apparently the only other unit available had 2 double beds that could...

Flamingo hotel was a great vacation spot to just relax and enjoy the pacific ocean. Its located on the Guanacast region of Costa Rica, about 2 hours drive from Liberia. The locals Ticos are nice and most know a little english. Its isolated and bit pricey though. Pricey in nearby Tamarindo too. Rent a car. Don't drive at night and...

Nice resort with very helpfull and outgoing staff... food is good and consistent. Rooms are nice and clean. Both the pool bar and the sunset bar is great for adults and children. However... Rental of water sport equipment is very over priced and the tours advertised are basically very long taxi rides we spent 3 hours travelling for a 30min...

I feel we got our monies worth. The staff. Absolutely magnificent. All of them. Friendly, approachable, can't do enough for you. Pura Vida, guys. Pool Bar. Fully stocked, with enough alcohol to sink a battleship and a wide range of non alcoholic drinks, made, shaken, stirred. Beach. The hotel is on the beachfront which is why we chose it. Its...

What we THOUGHT it would be is like- drinks, food, coffee, tea included..like most all inclusives. To our surprise, only breakfast was included and I had to pay $4.00...

This is of course not a 4-star hotel but the front desk is very good and especially because they made an free room upgrade for us (well, mainly because they've run out of our rooms category and tried to give us a worse room at first). Familily suits with sea view are simply great. Flamingo beach is 30 m close...

We spent 9 days at Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa and we really enjoyed the whole vacation. Professional staff, really nice pool area (great for the kids, both small and youngsters). The beach is just on the otherside of the small road. You do not go to Flamingo for the night life since it is a small village. Just a...
