4 night visitPosted Mar 1, 2017
Pros: Nice little beach below resort to swim in ocean by marina or you could go to larger Flamingo Beach which lovely if you want bigger waves.
Cons: Hot plate didn't work which was annoying so could only cook with microwave.
Location: There is good restaurant in Plaza about block away down hill, Angelina's.
Ended 4 week holiday here and enjoyed our stay overall. We stayed in room 209, it was right above bar but noise didn't seem to be big issue as it closes around 9:30-10 and room was comfortable over all. We loved Flamingo Beach (close drive with lots of parking or walkable if you don't mind climbing hill home) and Flamingo Marina where resort is located has quiet beach below resort to spend days relaxing, swimming and no vendors bugging you to buy stuff, yeah!

Family vacation with teensPosted Jan 2, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel location is good but beach is small right by hotel. There are lots of stairs so may not be suitable for all. The apartment/ condo definitely needs to be updated but clean. We loved Bosco and took a kayak tour with him. It was a highlight of our trip.

Amazing staff and service!Posted Jun 14, 2015
I was there for 9 days with my 6 year old daughter. By the time we left, we felt like we had a family at Flamibgo Marina Hotel. They took amazing Care of us from day one. The Monkey Bar cant be beat!

Horrible HotelPosted May 8, 2015
Terrible Hotel,we had our reservation from May 4th to the 7th and we stay just one night,we have two rooms ,in the first one when we open the door was blood on the floor ,both rooms had dirty sheets and stains,The person in the front desk Bosco did take care of the rooms right away ,however we are frequent travellers and is the first time we see a hotel room in a "four star hotel" in this poor condition,little bit later that night we went to the "famous monkey bar" is that a joke?They don't have half of the dishes in the menu and way over priced ,we went after to the pool which is the late night pool and they don't even have lights around the pool ,next morning we had the most disgusting breakfast we ever have in Costa Rica I see the hotel at day light and I decide to go to The Flamingo Resort just down the road ask for two rooms and move my family out of this Hell Hole,I paid more money in this hotel because I truly believe that was what they advertise but this is just a joke and they are lying to the tourist ,Expedia ,trip advisor and any other company that endorse or sell the Flamingo Marina packages should stop selling them,even my 5 year old twins where disgusted by everything in this place ,one more thing Bosco was the only person in this resort who speak English fluent ,most of the workers couldn't communicated not even on a very basic English ,They don't give us the receipt when we check out and told us they could not print it,awful experience.

Way worse than others nearbyPosted Mar 5, 2015
This trip, due to availability, stayed half at Flamingo Beach and half here. Can't believe they are in the same "class." Staff speaks little english, promises things that don't happen, and can't help with almost anything. Answer to every question is "The person that can help with that isn't here yet" Bar is okay, food is terrible, pool is smaller than a suburban house pool.

TerriblePosted Jan 13, 2015 on Hotels
Terrible. We cheched in at 9:00 pm and everything was closed, even the bar and restaurant. Room wasnt clean, TV and AC were broken. I woke up earky to work and there was no water to take a shower. I called hotels.com and inmediatly went to a different hotel for the rest of the week. They called the Hotel and refuse to give me a refund, I paid $600 for 3 nights, only stayed less than 10 hours. The place is worth, in my opinion $15 a night.

Not family friendly!Posted Dec 4, 2014 on Hotels
We stayed only 30 minutes of our 11 day reservation because we did not feel safe! The website lead us to believe this was a family friendly resort. The resort has 5 pools and children are only allowed in a small 6 foot diameter pool. The bathroom window would not close, the welds were broken on the balcony railing to the point that the railing was unsafe to lean against. I would not recommend using this resort to anyone!

Loved the room layout.Posted Nov 1, 2014 on Hotels
The room was grate, only disappointment was there was no hot water and the cleanliness of the bathroom was not complete. But loved the room and the breakfast was very good. I would come back.
