This was my "first" time to Costa Rica. I booked this resort last minute on Booking.com. I wanted to be where it was relaxed, not a lot of crowds ( I work at airport ). Also, I wanted All-Inclusive, I didn't want to worry about anything. When I arrived it was late. My room was located on main level, which...

Their staff is terrible no criteria of customer service. They are more focused on kicking people out than servicing their paying customers. My travel was due to a family event and I invited one of my friends to have a coffee in the pool side and they kicked us out because my friend was staying in another hotel.

The hotel is clean but the rooms are dark since almost all rooms face the pool instead of the beautiful beach. The food was decent. They claim to use organic vegetables from their own garden. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Playa Flamingo Resort has it all. The beach is absolutely gorgeous. Great pool with pool bar. Accommodations are fine and staff is very friendly. We went in October which was off season. Had we known most surrounding restaurants were closed, we would have chosen the all inclusive package rather than just daily breakfast. However, breakfast buffet and omelet bar were...

We stayed 5 nights and it was a perfect end to our 2 week tour of Costa Rica! Our room was on the third(top) floor overlooking the pool – views of the sea, reception and bar were a bonus. It felt like it had been refurbished in the last couple of years – the bed and bathroom were super. We...

We booked our reservation thru a vacation site and when we got to the hotel after 5 hours drive ...our confirmation didnt match...! The hotel staff were very supported in order to follow up with our booking! There are wonderful beach views with great sunsets.

We stayed for 7 days without all inclusive package. Hotel and room a bit dated but clean and friendly, overall no complaints. Not on the beach but close enough that it doesn't matter, it is literally steps to the beach. We very much enjoyed this resort, the staff was always friendly, helpful and very welcoming. PURA VIDA completely. Restaurant is...

We had a great time in the Playa Flamingo Beach resource. The location is beautiful and the staff are excellent. Nothing was a problem for the staff and they were really good with the kids. Thanks again to Eric Quiros and the team in the restaurant. The hotel is right on the beach and the sunsets are stunning.

My wife and I needed somewhere affordable to getaway to. We searched a bunch of different websites, including Costco, Expedia, Hotwire - but we wound up booking using Booking.com. We were actually sort of skeptical of the great deal, because the resort is rated so highly, but priced so much lower to comparable American run resorts. We were not disappointed!...
