Location can't be beat!

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Cons: Rooms were a bit cramped and there were a few bugs and small geckos here and there. Casino needed a change machine so you could get american dollars.
Location: Coco Loco restaurant was a great find! Boogie boarding was amazing!
If you are looking for a lovely hotel away from the bustle of Tamarindo, stay here. Location is amazing with a beautiful beach just steps away. If you like boogie boarding or playing in great waves, this is the hotel for you. Be sure to ask for a room overlooking the beach or pool.

Beautiful beach front location, great value

Posted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: Nice location. Not too overcrowded. (Came in the off season though)
Cons: Exercise room was boiling hot every day. They have a difficult time regulating the AC in there for some weird reason. The Photographers are too pushy.
Location: There are several local restaurants to choose from within walking distance or short drive. Lots of tours available off site. Tennis and game room.
The Flamingo was a great pick for us. Not too overcrowded, or commercialized, personalable staff, rooms nice and roomie, buffet breakfast offered lots of options. Plentiful activities and something for everyone.

Relaxing with great beach setting

Posted May 26, 2014
Pros: The food and staff, as well as the location.
Cons: A few upgrades, our room refrigerator wasn't real cool, and one bathroom light needed replacing even after we advised the staff.
Location: A quiet location with only a few outside restaurants, one small grocery, and one outside gift shop.
We stayed for 8 nights for our 35th anniversary. The hotel is smaller than some resorts we've stayed in, but the staff and service made our stay extremely pleasant. The food is excellent any time of day, a very good value. We were very comfortable and relaxed. The sunsets are amazing as well as the beach.

Nice family orientated hotel close to beach

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Pros: I liked the small size of the hotel, as this was quite and personal service. We were comfortable putting the baby in the room and sitting pool side.
Cons: Really petty but clean glasses and cups daily would have been nice! They never replaced them in 8 days, washed them in the room! More restaurants.
Location: You could go fishing, snorkelling, zip lining! We did most of our adventures before we arrived. We enjoyed the beaches and the pool! It was 39 c
The staff was excellent, friendly and accommodating. This is a small hotel, very good for small children. There was only one restaurant so the after 8 days the menu became old, although the food was good. Overall the hotel could have been more accommodating with our need for adjoining rooms. But they did put us pool side and close to our daughters room, so this helped as we had our 10 month old grandson. We could put baby in the room and sit outside with a baby monitor. We would never been comfortable with this in a bigger hotel!

Steps from the beach

Posted Apr 19, 2014
Right on the beach. Several trees to lay under shading the sun. Great for relaxing. About 1 hr from the airport. Everything is very spread out in the area. Staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating. Anything I asked for was brought to me in minutes. Food was pretty good. There is an option of having all inclusive for all or part of your trip with a minimum of 2 days. Good breakfast in the mornings. Lots of fresh fruit. Beds were comfortable. Ac worked great. Rooms were very CLEAN. Only thing we hated was the shower. Water pressure was terrible and water temperature would shift often. Be careful with the hot water. Getting out was quite a step down. May not be appropriate for older people. Ask for a special room before going if you have mobility issues. Went white water rafting. Had a wonderful time. Guide was excellent. 2 hr trip to get there, but would definitely recommend going. It was the highlight of our trip. Must try Coco Loco that is just a walk down the beach. If you have a car also try The Shack. Both had delicious food at reasonable prices with a fun atmosphere. CL is great to watch the sunset. The only thing I would change with my trip would be to split the trip and spend a few days in the rainforest. Thanks for the good time FBR.

This hotel is right in front of Flamingo Beach. Nice pool. Rooms need remodeling, especially bathrooms.
