Restaurant manager Orlando and staff cater to your every need. Good food reasonably priced, nice beachfront setting with cute little raccoons foraging in the evening. Several good restaurants within walking distance. Awesome beach shared with locals. Good tours available & beautiful sunsets.

Let me begin by saying that I am a pilot and my wife is a flight attendant, we see a lot of the world and eat and stay in a lot of places. There are countries , cities, hotels, restaurants etc. that we do not care to visit ever again. Costa Rica, and in particular, the Flamingo Beach Resort, do...

We stopped here for the day with a tour group. The beach was lovely! We really could have stayed here the whole time and would have been perfectly happy. The spa offered massages on the beach, under the shade of the trees. As I was laying there, listening to the sound of crashing waves, I thought, "It certainly can't get...

We just got back from a family vacation where we stayed at the Flamingo Beach Resort. Our room was fantastic, with beautiful views of the ocean and sunset! Pool area was nice and relaxing and you can walk in between the pool and beach. Employees were friendly and everything was clean and well managed. I would give 5 stars other...

Really nice hotel to go and relax, it's calm and the pool is very nice, also the beach is arround 3 meters away from the hotel, if you want to stay calm and relax it's your hotel. The beach is not the most spectacular beach of Guanacaste but you can get to see the most beautiful sunsets of your life.

Flamingo beach is a good overall resort. The location is right on the beach with a beautiful pool and friendly staff. The rooms are pretty simple and sparse, but clean. We were lucky to be upgraded to a suite with a beach view on the second floor and it was fabulous! The back side of the hotel overlooks the parking...

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...
