We stayed at a condo just up the road from the resort and we had visitor priviledges to the resort. This we found very enjoyable and alot of our 2.5 weeks were spent by the pool. The days we were there we ate lunch at the restaurant and the food was very good. The service was excellent. However we found...

Thank you very much for your feedback regarding our resort. We definitely don't water down our drinks, but since most of our venues are outdoors, the ice does melt pretty quickly in the tropical heat. Every couple of months we do price surveys in the local area as to what other hotels and restaurants are charging for their food and...

So here it goes. Location great as it is located in a very private-remote beach. The hotel itself is in need of a bit of updating. The rooms were average; the bathroom clean but terrible water pressure! The towel situation NEEDS to be addressed. Bot in-room and pool they are a bit worn down. Internet is hot or miss but...

It is always good to get customer feedback even when it is not as positive as we would hope. Thank you for choosing our hotel, we regret that you were not extremely impressed. Every year we stock up on brand new towels and linens, so while I am surprised that you found towels to be a problem I promise to...

I stayed here as a part of a three destination package tour to Costa Rica. I am more accustomed to backpacking and this hotel wowed me with it's design and location. I spent a lot of time swimming in the pool and relaxing in the courtyard. I also started off every morning by walking to the beach a 100 ft...

Thank you for such a positive review of your stay at the Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa. We agree that we have the privilege of being located on one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Costa Rica. When the tide is low, it is also the most perfect beach I have ever been on for walking. You also...

My husband and went here late June 2011 for our honeymoon. Words can not describe how amazing this resort is. Yes the pool is a little small BUT with the ocean just a few feet away.

This hotel was fabulous! We had reserved an ocean view room with a king size bed. When we checked in, even though the hotel was nearly empty, they upgraded us to the honeymoon suite with all inclusive privileges! It was our 25th wedding anniversary, and we used a local travel agent named Jamie from Greenstone Travel, and I think that...

We are so sad and sorry that your vacation was marred by the fact that we had some student groups on property at the same time, which caused you to feel that the resort was too crowded. As we are located on a very secluded and beautiful beach that seldom gets crowded, and many of our clients use us their...

I checked with the manager regarding your comments and there was definitely a misunderstanding with regard to your wants and needs at check-in for the type of room and bed configuration you preferred. Perhaps also due to this confusion, the proper explanation was not provided to you at check-in regarding the procedures for keeping track of the pool towels. Unfortunately...

Great hotel, within steps of the beach. Beautiful pool, food is pretty good-nothing spectacular. Swim up bar, game room, movie room, spa-all on site. They offer daily activities and you can sign up and pay ($$$) for ATV/jet ski tours. My only complaint-our room smells like a mix of mold and smoke. When I spoke to the front desk abt...
