The service was impeccable from the greeter to the massage. The management really has a good handle on how to make the spa experience AWESOME! They easily fit us in on the schedule and included a few extra items. They even helped us find a good salon. Thanks to everyone there.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in Feb 2017. The location is superb, just a few yards from a very nice beach but it's hard to chose between the beach and the large pool, which is suitable for all ages. We can't fault the staff, every one very polite and went out of their way to be helpful. I don't want...

Loved the hotel and the staff - really great. I'm a solo female traveller so feeling safe is important to me and i certainly did, both in the hotel and in general in Costa Rica. I like smaller hotels too - the staff get to know you a little and i think are more friendly. the room was lovely, clean...

Highly recommend the all-inclusive option as the best budget choice. Meals add up quickly. (We lunched off property only one afternoon, ordered two Imperials each - the...

For a family wedding and vacation, we stayed at the Flamingo Beach Resort and Spa, during 5 days in February. The accommodations, the food, the staff and the atmosphere were outstanding. Our group ranged from 10 months old to 78 years. Everyone had fun! I would especially like to recognize Reinaldo, the masseuse at the Spa; the serving staff, Oscar,...

Stayed here for a week. What can I say?  Super solid place. The maids where on point with everything.  The poolbar had amazing drinks and was overall very good. Entertainment by an energetic and positive Costa rican. The receptionist all did an amazing job and was very friendly and service minded. 5 stars. Salute to Elias, Isella, Jaime and Fiorella...

The hotel staff was great. Elias and Manolo worked the pool bar and always remembered what we liked to drink and very courteous. Geancarlo and Olger were very good waiting on us during our meals. It's a great family type environment and the employees here are obviously personally invested to ensure their customers come back. Mel and I look forward...
