After doing my research on TripAdvisor, we finally booked here not really knowing what to expect. We chose this location because of an ATV tour we wanted to take. I was in charge of making the whole itinerary for a group of five and did not wanted to disappoint anybody. What a big surprise when we got there. The location...

We are very pleased that your research led you to us and that you were quite happy with what you found! Thank you for your positive review. We regret that you had trouble with WiFi, but it is a problem with the carrier in the area and the lack of bandwidth provided by our ISP.

My wife and I stayed at Flamingo Beach Resort Jan 25-29, 2014 celebrating our 40th anniversary on the 27th. Our room was always perfectly clean and the food was delicious. Service was exceptional. What stood out most was the attention to detail provided by the staff for our Romantic Dinner on the Beach. Juan Carlos Rojas and his staff exceeded...

Every now and then, every hotel owner has to deal with a guest who wants something for nothing and when they do not get what they want, they threaten to write a terrible review on Trip Advisor. We regret that you were unhappy with the standard room that you booked. We would have been happy to upgrade you, however you...

I was here two nights last November as part of my honeymoon in Costa Rica. The hotel has beautiful grounds, a huge pool with swim up bar, a great restaurant by the pool with a second story lounge area (where you can enjoy great views of the beach right across the street). There's also a game room and a casino....

What a fabulous and comprehensive review; we truly appreciate that you took the time to do this and that almost everything was so positive.
