Great resort on a beautiful beach

Posted Jan 9, 2018
Pros: The beach, the pool, very clean, good location, nice small size. The staff are great, especially the concierge Flory.
Cons: The biggest thing - better food in the restaurants. Updated bathrooms. More beach toys available (boogie boards, frisbees, etc.)
Location: Many of the activities are 2-2.5 hours away. Zip lining, rain forests, hot springs, horseback riding, etc.
Would definitely recommend this resort. It was nice and small, so everything was very convenient. It's right on the beach - it takes about a minute to get from the pool to the beach. The pool area is beautiful. Everything is kept very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach is great for swimming and walking. Hard packed sand and not to crowded. The concierge was really helpful in planning day trips and making restaurant reservations. Some small negatives - the rooms were very clean but the bathrooms were dated. The showers could use some new tile and plumbing fixtures. Our air conditioner broke towards the end of our trip and they weren't able to fix it successfully. The biggest negative is that the food is not great. The breakfast buffet is pretty good (not fantastic, but pretty good). But the lunch/dinner buffets were really poor. The food you can order from the menu is pretty good but not great. I definitely would not recommend the all inclusive package because then you are stuck with lunch/dinner buffets. Lunches from the menu were OK, but we preferred to go to nearby restaurants for dinner when possible. Coco Locos is a 5 minute walk down the beach - you can eat right on the beach and the food is good. Also, it would have been nice if they had more beach toys available like boogie boards. Every time we tried to rent a boogie board, they were out. All in all, we loved our visit and had a great time. We would stay at this resort again.

Lovely Beach front Hotel

Posted Jan 8, 2018
Pros: Smaller hotel, not too rowdy, peaceful, beautiful pool and beach.
Cons: I wish they had more things to do after 7pm, maybe more music in the nighttime.
Location: Not much to do around, needed taxi to go mostly everywhere.
I loved everything about my stay at Flamingo, from the amazing breakfast to the lovely swim up bar pool to the gorgeous beach which is only steps away from the hotel and just plain BREATHTAKING. The staff offered and signed me up for an excursion to Granada, Nicaragua, best decision ever. The trip was amazing which included bfast, lunch and pick up service from the hotel. The staff was super friendly and very accommodating. i would definitely come back to Flamingo Beach Resort and Spa.

A 2 Star hotel with a 5 Star Price

Posted Dec 23, 2017
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: See my comments
People were very nice. Room lacked good lighting. Beds were small and shower did not work. The parking lot was unnecessarily noisy. The excursion was a bust. The omelets was awesome but the other food was below average.

Excellent for transition....

Posted Dec 15, 2017
Stayed 3 days Dec 7-10 2017. A great way to transition into Costa Rica, especially if you have a week or less and have issues (mobility, safety, pregnancy etc.) that make a reasonable all-inclusive option preferable. I prefer local and non-chain travel if possible and Playa Flamingo is a good and reasonably cheap option if you just need a few days adjacent to a stunning beach with a pool, unlimited food/drinks, and a great place for groups and kids on a budget. Staff and space were totally fine and had a tub (big plus for Costa) and decent restaurants with a late evening bar and an undeniably stunning sunset. Every night. From a pretty good bar. If you are a budget surfer or true explorer or want a full-on Tico experience this isn’t it. But Playa Flamingo is very comfortable. Easy (ESPECIALLY with the expensive but direct shuttle from Liberia airport after a long series of flights) and comfortable with accessibility, minimal language issues and excellent value. Issues were marginal. Slightly dated but a non-issue IMO. Some ice machines weren’t functional (excuse to hit the bar/socialize) and adjacent gardening/construction messed with sleep ins (4 hours of chainsaw does suck regardless of time) and prices in the resort shops are kinda brutal. Great value and easy for those who need a few days in the sun with all you-can-eat & drink. Good for groups and good for kids with unbelievable sunsets.

Great pool, right on beach

Posted Dec 11, 2017
Gorgeous location, nice rooms, terrific breakfast with fresh custom omlettes. Only negative was the price of drinks at the bar. Highest we paid anywhere, made you want to bring your own. Otherwise outstanding.
