This was our first time to Costa Rica (Playa Flamingo) I traveled with my 27 y.o. daughter. The name for this hotel is confusing as we at first hit Flamingo Beach resort which was way out of our league. The beach is to the right and about 500 yards from the turn. Food is prepared by a chef, which was different. We ate once at the hotel for dinner. Drinks are a bit high-American $8 for 10 ounce. There is open lobby with no A/C, but you don't need it. There are two pools with a swim up bar. There is also a hammock. The beach area is not a place to walk down to as on this side of the peninsula, there is black rock and sand, but no place to set up a chair. All the wait staff are there to help you. We bought local fruit at the fruit stands and the lobby receptionist gave us the names and how to eat them. Parking is minimal-maybe 20 spots. There is no ice on the floors for the room-you have to get it at the bar. There is no coffee pot in the room.
