For families looking to relax poolside with a beautiful beach just steps away, this child friendly hotel on Guanacaste's Playa Flamingo is just the ticket. My husband and I have been visiting Costa Rica for 11 years, and although we now have a place of our own in the mountains, Flamingo Beach Resort is the beach hotel our children and grandchildren look forward to when they come to visit each summer.
The pool, huge and fairly shallow at a uniform 4.7 feet, with great lounging areas both in and out, is absolutely the centerpiece of the property. The swim up pool bar and friendly bartenders, as well as a large jalapa stype kids's pool (all attached) make it a place for families and couples alike. There is also an awesome kids' playground area with nice equipment near the pool.
We prefer to purchase the breakfast only plan so we can enjoy nearby restaurants, but many choose the all-inclusive option. The food is delicious morning, noon, and evening.
FBR is not a new hotel by any means, but the rooms are well kept, very clean, updated regularly, and large. We enjoy having both a bathtub and shower. We prefer the poolside rooms and the nice large balcony area.
It is always fun to return and be greeted by many of the same staff whom I originally met during my first stay in 2003. The longevity of so many staffers speaks well for the management. The employees seem genuinely happy to be there, and the helpfulness, smiles, and overall hospitality of the entire staff adds to the pleasure factor considerably.
Flamingo Beach, directly across a narrow dirt road from the pool and restaurant, is one of the most beautiful in the country. Sunsets here are a marvel, and guests and locals gather to capture the moments on film. The beach is long, great for walking or finding a secluded area, with a powerful surf at high tide. Low tide is perfect for playing in the surf.
We usually stay 5-7 nights, but for just a long weekend even, Flamingo Beach Resort is an awesome choice! Looking forward to a return visit!
