My girlfriend and I just returned from a 9 day trip to Costa Rica, the last 4 of which were spent at the Flamingo Beach Resort. We loved our time here, and slipped into a state of extreme relaxation, after 5 days of adventure on the earlier parts of our trip. Upon arriving, we were given a welcome drink, and...

We arrived at the Flamingo Beach Resort and Spa late at night. We were impressed with the security and helpful front desk staff. Our room overlooked the pool, which,even when a girls US soccer team visited, was not noisy! The room was adequate, highlights included the extremely comfortable beds, and I mean comfortable! The balcony was nice and the curtains...

We appreciate your comments about your recent stay at our Resort. It is especially gratifying to know that you found your room overlooking the pool to be comfortable and NOT NOISY, because we just invested in changing all the original wood-framed windows and balcony doors to aluminum frames with double-paneled glass, in a modernization with the goals of energy savings...

Loved being greeted with a fruity (yet virgin) drink! the staff was wonderful and super friendly! the room was great, clean, and spacious. The pool area was wonderful! If you want a prime spot or one with an umbrella...wake up a little early and throw you towel and magazine on the chairs. Heading to breakfast I would do this, and...

We chose to stay here since it was an American style full service resort. The location is beautiful but that's about it.

The pool area is nice but...
