MUCH FARTHER FROM AIRPORT THAN EXPECTED!Posted Apr 29, 2015
Pros: LOCATION ON SWIMMABLE OCEAN BEACH
Cons: UPDATE ROOMS AND FOOD QUALTY
Location: OCEAN/WATER ACTIVITIES TO DO
CHOSEN FOR PROXIMITY OF DEPARTURE AIRPORT - THE PUBLISHED 21K MILES DISTANCE WAS MORE LIKE 90 K ACTUAL DRIVE MILES WHICH WAS NOT ANTICIPATED

Great locationPosted Apr 23, 2015
Checking in we happen to have our granddaughters join us for a few days. I asked Sergio if we could get an upgrade. I was told that he couldn't do anything because we booked through expedia. We were charged 60.00 for the 2 additional people per nite. We noticed that guest were receiving a cocktail when they checked in. We didn't receive any. Guest should all be treated alike. Wi-Fi didn't work well in our room. The resort is located in a nice area, in the morning you can walk out on the beach, nice swimming poolm

Beautiful facilty - excellent staff.Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: Beautiful pool - right across the street from a fantastic beach - restaurant right there - tours can be booked on site.
Cons: Not sure I can recommend anything to be improved. Again, the food was very good, but not fantastic. But I wasn't expecting a 5-star restaurant.
Location: Very quiet area, safe to walk outside the resort, but if you're looking for a place with a lot of night life you need to stay somewhere else.
This facility exceeded my expectations. Pictures make everything look great, but this resort looks even better in person. The food was very good, not fantastic, but very good. the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Amazing stay, above and beyond what was expected!Posted Apr 18, 2015
Pros: Comfortable, cosy, warm and inviting staff, where you are pampered.
Location: There are plenty of activities and tours the hotel overs or you can take a ride to the other beaches. Tamarindo has a lot of shopping and restaurants.
My girlfriend and I went to this hotel, because of overall great reviews and hearing about a beautiful sunset. Staff was amazing and friendly all-through out and would bend over backwards to make sure you are having a good time, Especially Elias, Omar, Leo, Orlando, and Manolo (and Manolo makes the best drinks!). When we came there were a lot of families present, and by the end of the stay the hotel became a destination wedding. The photo staff can try to push you to become their models, but the photos are amazing. Overall had an amazing stay and am looking forward to coming back when i can.

Will be back!Posted Mar 22, 2015
Location: Beautiful location, it is not too commercialized! Great restaurants nearby!
My husband, children (ages 18, 20, 21, 24) and I had a wonderful experience at Flamingo Beach Resort. Although the resort was filled to capacity, it never felt crowded. The staff at the front desk were so helpful answering questions, giving suggestions, and arranging transportation. The pool bar staff were fun, friendly and very efficient. Drinks were wonderful too! Rooms were clean and adequate size, we spend minimal time in them because we were too busy being outside. Loved the size of the resort, not too big yet it had all of the needed amenities. This resort is located in such a beautiful part of Costa Rica. We loved that it is not a commercialized area, natural beauty. We will be back!

Best Vacation Ever!Posted Mar 19, 2015
Pros: The pool was great, room was very clean and nice. Bartenders were very friendly. The breakfast was pretty good and the drinks were great!
Cons: Only thing I could recommend is that they have evening entertainment. Everything pretty much dies down as soon as the sun goes down.
Location: The location was great! We went on 2 excursions that were about an hour away (booked through the hotel). Both were a lot of fun.
This was the best vacation we have ever had! Didn't want to come home. People are so friendly and nice. Hotel was excellent! Poor was great, beach right across the street. The beach was gorgeous.

Relaxing StayPosted Mar 15, 2015
Cons: Offer more room options for Families.
Location: A cab ride to Tamarindo is worth the time. Great place to walk around and shop.
Location to the beach was fantastic. Resturant while overpriced was good food. Would highly suggest talking a walk down beach to Coco Loco. Their food is great and you sit on the beach to eat. Only disappointment was our room smelled horrible. We could have moved but needed to be next door to our kids. Our adjoining rooms were not adjoining as we were told so our options were limited. Staff was fantastic. Always courteous and helpful. We did book several tours through the hotel which we found easier. They will negotiate on the price for larger groups. For planning purposes, I would caution travelers on tours, if they say it takes 3.5 hours to get to the Arenal you need to add another 1.5 hours. We left at 7, stopped to pick up others from different hotels, then lunch at 11:30 and did not get to Volcano until 1:00. Good tour but way too much time on the bus. At night we left Arenal at 6:30 and did not get back to hotel until 11:30 and that was with very quick bathroom breaks. Wasn't just on the Arenal tour where the time was way off - same with Blue River. Two and half hours was easily 3 and a half. All and all we enjoyed our stay at Flamingo Beach.

Very nice, quiet, on beach, great staff!Posted Mar 10, 2015
Stayed here for eight days in March this year, really enjoyed it! Staff was very helpful and friendly, food was very good, prices is not bad for everything and nice friendly dive company on site. Flamingo was a pretty small town, but some good restaurants close to other activity centers like Tamarindo.
