Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa is located on the beach of the lovely Flamingo Bay. One of Costa Rica's best beaches. Very quite (probably due to the lack of surf swell) and pristine. The hotel itself is good, although it could definitely do with some renovations here and there, but overall it's pretty good. Decent sized rooms, either with balcony...

The food was really great at this hotel. Never had a bad meal there. It's very large and has just about everything you need. The staff was friendly and accommodating, especially in the restaurant. The beach access was nice. There were normal "peddlers" as you walk out to the beach, but it was nothing obnoxious.

I really enjoyed my week long stay at Flamingo Beach Resort! The staff and sunsets are amazing. I felt catered to, cared for and valued during my stay as a female solo traveler. I really admired how they took care of all of the guests during the Hurricane Otto scare. The staff did a great job of keeping everyone informed...

Such a nice place! Spacy, elegant and perfectly situated at the lovely beach. Marvellous staff everywhere, from reception to bars and restaurants. One minus thought iş that the hotel is a typical all inclusive. For those who only have breakfast it is hard to find restaurants ın the neighbourhood. The hotel iş very lonely situated. But a tip iş to...

We stayed here on an all inclusive basis for 5 nights. The staff were very happy and friendly, the food was good, and the cocktails were plentiful. The rooms themselves were very nice but nothing to rave about. The best part is the beach just outside the grounds of the hotel. It's a beautiful long white sandy beach with resident...

We were there for 2 nights and enjoyed all the amenities of the Flamingo - the people were so friendly and nice, the food and drinks were yummy, the grounds were beautiful but the one thing that made us not enjoy the hotel was the overwhelming smell of mildew in our room. That was why I gave it a 3...

We had 2 fantastic weeks staying here. Met some lovely people. Bar staff were brilliant - especially Jason (that's how it's pronounced) & the other one, can't remember his name. Really enjoyed the food. Put on 5lb in two weeks! Staff were absolutely lovely, friendly, helpful and always smiling. Went on Blue River trip to see animals, saw more animals...

Fabulous time . Very friendly service. The concierge was very accommodating with booking excursions (definitely recommend scuba diving off the coast of the Catalina islands). The wildlife was abundant. The food was wonderful . Beautiful sunsets with the resort positioned perfectly. Wish we could've stayed longer. Corey, Angela, Jacob, Nathan, Dan & Judi

You are right next to the beach, plus they have a huge pool with swim up bar. You can walk to a variety of restaurants or it is a 20 minute taxi ride to Tamarindo/less than 10 minutes to Brasilito. The staff is what makes it special - all of them ALWAYS say hello and smile. I was having printer...
