Every morning we had breakfast on the terrace with the most incredible view. At night we saw an awesome night sky and display of fireflies off the same terrace. We visited during low season so the hotel was very quiet. It would have been nice to see lots of people hanging out there. The management and staff were a huge...

I did call to Expedia on August 2013. I did ask to help me to find the nice hotel which one located very close to the ocean because we need to swim every day. Expedia sold to me the room at El Sabanero Beach hotel. I am 60 and my husband's sister is 55. We are from Washington State- it's...

I struggled with whether to writing a candid review about this hotel, because it may hurt their business, but I wouldn't want anyone else to be drawn in by the wonderful web photos they provide and then have to spend valuable vacation time at this rundown resort. My daughter and I wanted to end our two week vacation at a...

We stayed at the Sabanero for 3 days and we had an amazing time. With a great location, the view is impressive and it is really close to other beaches such as Conchal, Brasilito, Potrero and many others. They have a private beach, very nice and safe (but I am sure that once they fix the stairs, it would be...

This hotel has a superb staff, great view (one of the best in the area), is safe and rooms are fine. Negative things: the cleaning service in the rooms is not one of the best, the first day they did our room just fine, second day they almost didn't clean and instead of making the bed they just left the...

It looks like this hotel used to be a better place. The new owner is trying to fix the place and it's not bad at all. The view is impressive, I really loved the view. My room had the swimming pool right next to the backdoor. Also the location is good because you can go to Playa Flamingo, Playa Dantas...

My stay at el Sabanero Beach Hotel went great and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Flamingo beach is on the expensive side, at least for Costa Rica, so this hotel isn't cheap, but it is very competitively priced compared to other hotels in the area. The view from up on the hill where the hotel is located is...

Hotel has one of the best views of Playa Flamingo. Sunset is superb! Staff are very helpful and friendly. This is all the positives I can say about the hotel. Here are the downsides: hallway, exterior dining area are dirty and are not cleaned everyday. Breakfast is ok but we had to wait for fruits, eggs when we stayed there....

Dear guest, I am really sorry that you feel that way but did not make us aware of any problems during your stay. We are in Costa Rica and we cannot control the poops of Iguanas or toads. 2 of the very large Iguanas are being constantly fed by our guests and we cannot chase them away. We entered their...
