I started my trip from Liberia and this beach and hotel was the perfect way to start my two weeks in CR. The beach is beautiful, hotel is beach front and very well maintained, people are super friendly (like in rest of the country) , rooms are a nice size, very clean and comfortable beds. the pool is big. Did not try the restaurant only the bar. Brasilito is 10 minutes away or less if you want local food. three nights well spent, hotel is located in a beautiful area where you can drive to other beaches. I am not a fan of Jimmy Buffet's music but if you are you'll be in paradise. totally recommended.

Hotel's Favorite
Myself, my wife and our 10 year old daughter enjoyed a wonderful eight night stay at the Margaritaville Hotel. This was not our first or even our second stay at this property, in fact we had visited here four or five times previous to Margaritaville taking over the running and operations of the hotel, and so we were very familiar with ‘Flamingo’ both before and after the Margaritaville transition and the Jimmy Buffet vibe and mantra had its corporate theme of approval stamped on the resort. Not in a bad way though, not at all, I am happy to add. I have always given this resort top reviews on an annual basis and that is still the case now after our February visit once again this year. We have always been very fond of the staff at Margaritaville and fortunately many of those kind ladies and gents are still plying their trade at the hotel. That is a big net positive and plus, since we have always been treated so well by so many, if not all of them - Manuel, Elias, (Jaime, Erica, Janette - Capriccios), Manolo, Orlando, Michael, Cynthia (TAM Tours) et al, et al, et al. Everyone across the entire spectrum of employment at the hotel are great ambassadors, super sound, friendly and good people - Thank you all for taking such good care of myself and my family on our most recent visit. We went to the rodeo one evening in Brasilito (Manuel’s recommendation- thanks pal) which was interesting, we did two catamaran sunset trips - Panache was the best (booked expertly through the always helpful lady Cynthia at TAM Tours in the lobby), also a day long trip to Diamanté Animal and Adventure Park, two dives with the on site Rocket Frog Divers (English Hannah and Taryn from Savannah (via Belfast like me!) were both professional, fun and excellent) and plenty of invigorating swims in the Ocean and relaxing family dips in the pool amongst daily Temple bar esque visits to the swim up Oasis for a yarn and a brewski served up in always fun fashion by Elias or Manolo. The bar food was great, also dinners at Capriccios Restaurant under the stewardship of Jaime (best waiter and loveliest bloke) were delicious, breakfasts were okay, not as good as on previous visits perhaps, but the wonderful Costa Rican coffee and a table outside in the mornings made the lack of porridge and limited variety of buffet not that much of a big deal. The live entertainment upstairs in the bar was always enjoyable when that was on the itinerary on some evenings and the servers were always friendly and hospitable. I did politely ask at reception three times for a second chair to be allocated to our room / balcony (like all the other rooms had) but we never did receive twin chairs, which was a marginal disappointment, but yet again, hardly a major grievance and don’t read much into that minor omission. Hopefully we shall continue visiting Margaritaville in our future trips to Costa Rica. We love the country, we love the lifestyle and we love the people and I’m happy to say that Margaritaville enhances that overall complimentary and positive experience myself and my family enjoy and have enjoyed on many occasions as your guests. Keep on keeping on. Cheers. Be well my Margaritaville friends.

My wife and I just returned from a week at this location. The customer service was amazing. Any questions or request were always handled immediately. They definitely appreciate their customers. We never waited for breakfast, chairs besides the pool, or anything else ... however we saw that some late risers did. Highly concentrated on cleanliness with required hand washing and masking during certain instances. There are some resident coatis that live on the property, which are an added bonus. We passed the Westin, which looked a little "grand-er" but overall were very happy with our pick. Would definitely return and cannot say enough about how much the staff care about their customers. Highly recommended.

We stayed in a family bunk room that accommodated up to 6 (we had 5) and it was perfect! Playa Flamingo is a beautiful, less crowded beach with white sand and our kids loved it. Pool was nice although in-pool bar seating was closed due to Covid, which was a bummer. Staff was responsive to issues (our safe didn't work, but they helped us a few times).

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the pool area. The staff were friendly and gracious. Really enjoyed the breakfast options which were delicious and the view of the sea while eating was so relaxing! The only thing that we didn't love was literally wearing our room key the entire time on our arms as a bracelet. The hotel was good value for money and we would definitely consider coming back.
