Family game area, movie theater, workout facility, shaded kiddie pool. WiFi needs help. Connected to service, but slow and spotty. Not that you should be working while here, but you won't get...

This Chicago family of 5 found that the Flamingo Beach R&S combines a great pool and deck with soft sandy beach just steps away. Both were safe and clean and even better than the website photos. Food was excellent with zesty local flavor and safe favorites for kids. The Staff was exceedingly courteous and willing to help with casual Spanish...

My family has been coming to this hotel for several years and it seems to just get better each time we stay there. The hotel staff is friendly, available and helpful and the rooms and grounds are in very nice shape. The pool area can get a little cramped, but you are literally steps from one of the prettiest beaches...

We recently visited CR and stayed at this resort. It is a beautiful resort that is very family friendly (which is what we needed). The beach is right there. It is technically across a road but it is a dirt road with very little traffic. There are tours companies not associated with the hotel that we did not use that...

The room (had to be renegotiated), but I eventually ended up with a nice room near poolside. The service was optional, but I had them make my bed everyday. I found that I had mixed reviews about the poolside bar staff. At first they were "cool towards me and my family" then they definitely turned "cold towards the end." We...

You cant get a bite to eat, a drink or a bottled water after 10pm. The whole hotel closes up with no exceptions! A bit ridiculous for a resort.

I highly recommend Martin, who is from Venezuela. I booked an HERBAL FIRMING WRAP and the ONZEN ANTI-AGING SIGNATURE FACIAL. He made me feel very comfortable upon arrival and had me in a very zen state during and after my treatments.

“If you want the main pool view then it appears you need odd numbered rooms. The rooms with hammocks were on ground level.”
