This condo was very close to the beach making it extremely attractive to rent. However the appliances were dated and should be updated. The 2nd bedroom as well needed updating. Since we were only 2 people it sufficed. We also were not there a lot. The condo would suit a couple with one orvtwo children but not 2 couples. That...

Let's see--where shall I begin? I couldn't find anyone at the front desk the 3 times I tried. First time the security man helped me find him, but the next 2 times I just came back to the room after waiting around the area for several minutes. There is a bell but it didn't work. My husband said someone was...

I concur with other reviewers. This place is tired, tired, tired. Stuck in the 1970s and looks it. The only redeeming factor is the view but to get the view one must be sitting on one of the decks that face the cove. And for that you must be staying in one of the condo units. Keep looking until you...

Flamingo Marina Resort IS NOT located on Flamingo Beach- that is a 5 minute walk away. It is located near a small beach that one takes a series of steps to reach. The "resort" consists of mostly privately owned condos, most not in great shape. They have 3 pools but the one by the Monkey Bar is closed as is...

We were so disappointed with this property, mostly because it was misrepresented on the VRBO site. The owner (Mickey) never once responded to our emails or phone calls. To start off, he told us it was it was unit #26 and that the security guard would have the key for us. After driving around for an hour we discovered that...

BEWARE OF THIS OWNER! I stayed in this unit for six nights in August, 2016, with my sister and our four children. On a positive note, this unit is very well-located. It’s about a minute walk from a small, lovely beach with gentle waves that were perfect for children. The unit is also quite spacious. The unit had a few...

Nice, clean resort and just yards from the beach. The restaurant has a fence around it. I assume to keep birds out but most places are completely open air and we never noticed a problem. Security is pretty tight to keep non guests out. This may prove challenging if you just want to visit the restaurant or bar. Since it...

I am so happy I stayed there. Though the stairs up and down to the beach are inconvenient, there are pools. I liked the stairs, good excersize. It was the nicest resort I have ever seen. The monkey bars is outstanding.

This is the Guanacoste Region which was in drought season. Room 104 had an awesome view from the lanai of the small, rocky beach, marina and mountains. There are 2 nice pools. Ask for beach towels. The room itself was "tired" and in need of a coat of paint. Kitchen had bare minimum of supplies. Romeero & Phillipe work long...

We recently stayed in unit #603. It has been renovated and was a very good accommodation for us. The location is excellent, with an ocean view, close access to a private beach, ocean swimming, and several restaurants within walking distance.
