Our travel was great and the shuttle service was decent although long (over an hour) and cost about $79. The hotel itself was decent, the rooms are nothing special and are generally pretty bare, but the staff does a great job of attending to your requests. The real gem is the grounds and the beaches, some of the nicest I've...

My friends and I just returned from Flamingo Beach Resort after an incredible first time in Costa Rica. The resort was everything we were hoping for- great food, great drinks, very friendly service, beautiful, and clean. As soon as you walk into the lobby you're greeted by the wonderful staff and an awesome view overlooking the pool and ocean. They...

After my sister's good experience with this hotel in January, 2017, I decided to spend ten days in mid-March rather than go to south Florida because of the greater reliability of the weather and the ease of reaching it through a non-stop flight from Atlanta to Liberia. The weather was beautiful, with temperatures over 90* F every day, and the...

We came to Costa Rica for our honeymoon. As soon as you arrive the lobby is open so you have a view of the pool and the ocean out to the distance. The hotel is beautiful with really great staff. We had the ocean view suite. The restaurants that are located in the hotel are convenient and pretty good This...

My boyfriend and I came to Costa Rica for a nice long vacation and picked the perfect spot. We first thought about Tamarindo but once we saw how touristy it was, I'm so glad we picked Playa Flamingo. The beach is gorgeous and the resort itself is really nice with great rooms. The lobby and rooms are all open to...

We had an amazing experience at the Flamingo. Our room was great, the food was spectacular but the reason we would return is the way we were treated by the staff. They simply are wonderful. I fully recommend getting the all inclusive option as not worrying about your wallet is a wonderful way to stay at the Flamingo. I must...

Thanks to Santos, sorry about the amount of sand and wax we left in your taxi!! Resort is great. Beach is fantastic. Great snorkelling to right hand side of beach over the rocks. Staff were amazing...

The resort overall was clean and well maintained. Our room was on the ground floor facing the pool so it was nice and close. We also had a hammock outside. The room was musty smelling so you need to run the AC all the time. It is a 3* so bare that in mind. However, I gave it a very...

The staff definitely made our trip enjoyable! They were so kind, helpful and accommodating. The first night we were accidentally put in the wrong type of room, but they were able to quickly fix it first thing the next day. The only con to the entire place was our bathroom in our 2nd room was a little out-dated. But I...

We enjoyed our week at Flamingo Beach. The staff was friendly and willing to help. The pool is beautiful and with the beach just steps away the location is excellent. There are only two restaurants plus a pool bar. The restaurant food was good with a mix of Costa Rican food and other options. We enjoyed the all inclusive. You...
