Just spend 4 days at this little gem of a hotel. Great for couples, singles, or families. Very relaxed atmosphere where nobody judges you. Nice rooms, great family pool with a swim up bar. Food is good, with an occasional great item. Nice beach with decent waves to boogie board surf on. Very safe with security around 24/7. Fantastic spa...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and it has been great both times. Check in was bungled up a bit this time and we had to wait about 40 minutes after check in time to get into our room but it wasn't that bad. My somewhat grumpy husband left a pretty bad review because of this but...

Many thanks to Linda and Milady for their amazing work and help - it was everything we could have hoped for and more. The wedding was low stress, they took care of even the tiniest details we...

Right on the beach, great swimming pool with covered kiddie pool and swim up bar. Two pretty good restaurants (we chose the all inclusive package, and it was the best way to go for us (three picky kids) but maybe not for the hotel!). There is also a nice pool bar. Staff good, some were kinda long suffering. The blasted...

We had 10 adults staying in Flamingo Beach Resort and while the location was great with respect to the beach and Tamarindo, I was very disappointed with the information we were given and our room in general. We paid for the all-inclusive package (food + drinks) and were given the appropriate bracelets. When we signed the contract with the terms...

We booked a family suite and had two double beds in addition to a pull-out sofa. I thought my boys (12 & 14) were going to complain about having to alternate between the regular bed and the pull-out, but to my surprise my youngest reported that the pull-out bed was very comfortable and he was content to sleep there all...
