This is a great place to vacation, very nice beach in front of hotel. Suggest buying breakfast package( no brainer ). The casino was closed while we were there 11/25 - 12/2, so don't plan on it being open, very small space anyway!! Good food at Maria's next to hotel, also Shrimp king. I suggest if you like to fish,... More

My husband's life dream was to visit Costa Rica. We also gave serious consideration to moving there. After some research, we decided to celebrate his 70th birthday in Costa Rica. We researched several resorts and were very impressed by the reviews Flamingo received. The reviews did Flamingo justice. The resort itself is small but that is part of it's charm.... More

In our North Carolina home we make regular trips to the beach & mountains. We also spend a few weeks in the Keys each winter by car.  We... More

Flew into LIR and took a short drive to PF- to stay 3 days and get married on the beach. PFR kicked off the week nearly perfectly! Wedding ceremony on the beach was perfect. Grounds were beautiful. Staff was over the top friendly. Great breakfast at hotel restaurant but dinner was just meh ( thus 4/5 stars). Highly recommend!

I'm planning our honeymoon here and wanted to know more about transportation from San Jose. Do we take a domestic flight from San Jose to somewhere close to the resort or does the resort have private transportation available, etc. Also what the Casino is like. Do they have wheel of fortune slot machines? I would love any helpful information.

Me and my wife stayed at this resort a year ago. This was actually the place where I proposed. From the time we arrived to CR we were happy with the friendliness of the people.

The resort itself is very nice with a beautiful beachfront location. The swim up bar was a lot of fun and we met a lot of fun people.

Nice resort in a really nice but, very quite area. But, then I think most of CR is a quite place. The rooms were ok, I know they are working on updating rooms and ours probably wasn't one of the updated ones. Bed and bedding were fine - no real complaints. Bathroom was large but, problem with shower, every time... More
