My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights in August 2013, and couldn't be happier with the experience. The whole premises is very well maintained, the staff is friendly, the food is good, and the drinks are strong. We did the all-inclusive package, and it was well worth it. The menus had lots of variety for our lunches and dinners,...

We totally enjoyed our stay (early August 2013) at the Flamingo. All the meals were excellent, including the buffet breakfast and lunch. The swim-up bar was great as was the beach and waves which were a thirty second walk from the pool. Our room was more than satisfactory with an excellent view (a little more expensive of course for the...

The pool is nice, the room are just ok. But the beach is perfect more quiet and less touristic than other beaches around. Right outside the resort in the front of the beach you can find Christian. who works with Rigo Suave CR tours & transfer, he will help you to book any tours you want to do. Christian helped...

I visited the resort in August for a friend's wedding. The location was perfect. Nestled in the jungle and spilling out into the beach. The pool with the swim up bar was great for relaxing after the days adventures. I can’t say enough about the staff! The bartenders, Elias, Manolo, Bryan, Edwin and Wilmar were great! Always smiling and providing...

This resort is located on a beautiful, secluded and peaceful beach but the hospitality of the staff is what sets Flamingo Beach Resort apart.

We visited in August and the resort was not very crowded at all. Granted it is the 'rainy season' but we only experienced 3 small downpours in an entire week. The weather is unpredictable though! The drive was about 4 hours to reach Flamingo from Arenal and I think it might be about the same distance from San Jose. The...

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay; we deeply regret that you had some problems with both the check-in procedure and maintenance issues in your room.

Having stayed at several resorts in various locations over the years, I will say that Flamingo Beach is my favorite. The beach and pool are never overly crowded and the staff is always friendly. The other draw of this place is that the prices are relatively reasonable for a resort. I find it's easier to relax when you don't feel...
