We stayed at the Flamingo Resort for four nights after touring for a week. We wanted to relax, and enjoy the facilities and this resort was perfect in every way for this. The staff were so friendly in every way - we could not fault anything at all. The food in the restaurant was excellent and we loved the pool...

My husband and I stayed at the Flamingo Resort March 6-12. We had a Standard room which was much larger than we expected. The double beds seemed smaller than at home but that might have been because our last room had a King bed. The water pressure wasn't great but we managed and I understand that this will be fixed...

Location, location, location....right? It all depends on what you want to do while you are here. Are you a person that likes to hang at the pool with a cool one in your hand? Check! Are you a beach type that wants to lie on the sand and bake? Check! Looking for surfing out the front door? Not here. Looking...

We have been visiting Resort Playa Flamingo for many years, and our last visit was exceptional. One of the reasons we enjoy this resort is the friendliness of its employees. After 10 years, we still see many familiar faces, and that is always a treat. The staff is helpful in every one, from the pool bar to the restaurant to...

We'd been adventuring for a few days when we arrived at this hotel and everything about it screamed RELAX. Which is exactly what I wanted to do. The rooms are very comfortable and nice. We had a poolside view on the first floor which was very convenient for just coming and going through the balcony slider. The wait staff was...

My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed March 1-8 and could not have been happier with this hotel and its location. Absolutely gorgeous beach is just across a small road. Though no bar service here, you can still get lounge chairs carried where ever you want. Pool area also amazing and able to accommodate both the sun-loving wives...

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay there. The lobby and beach were lovely and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Two minor issues was the fact that we had to change our electronic room keys at least 6 times during the stay due to some malfunction with the system that none of the staff was too concerned about and...

My first impression of the hotel was favorable, the lobby was lovely,the staff very efficient and helpful, especially Pedro at the reception desk. They changed rooms for me easily, as too many stairs can be a problem.The beach is beautiful, much nicer than Hermosa or Playa Grande.The pool area is nice also. Dining was open air or inside, and the...

One of the highlights in this place is the beach. Trully fantastic and a beautiful spot. The sea is gorgeous and perfect for swimming and having fun.

stayed here for 3 nights in February, 2013. The Captains Suite was large and had a full sized fridge, micro! 2 Queen beds and a decent sized bathroom. Also, the terrace was large with gorgeous views of the ocean and pool area. Really nice staff and great breakfast included. The downside was the price of the drinks! (we aren't in...
