I traveled with my granddaughter on spring break, so the resort was a bit noisy and touristy for me. But it was just one half of our trip and had the activities and beach that we wanted. Turned out to be very fun, for her especially, since she met several other teens while there. The room was a standard hotel room. They had WiFi in the lobby but it was sporadic. They also had a small gift shop and a couple of restaurants there. Any other shopping you had to travel to small towns around 15 minut... Read more

The facility and rooms need some renovations such as the bathroom (shower heads, bathtubs, toilets, etc). The mattress protector needed to be replaced and/or cleaned. HOWEVER, the staff members from the hotel lobby to the spa to the restaurant/bars were amazing! They were so accommodating and made us feel like we were royalty! So that made up for the lack of renovations. Also, the e-concierge contacted me before to make any special arrangements and also informed me of what the resort has to offe... Read more

We chose the all inclusive plan which included all meals, anytime, along with drinks. If you are looking for a large city, this is not the place. We enjoyed staying on the property and beach. We were there for rest and relaxation. There were some activities such as water aerobics, salsa dancing, and Spanish lessons. We boo... Read more

It was an amazing experience! Everyone we so sweet and helpful. I definitely recommend it!! The beach was close and the pool was great. If you want to grab a bite I recommend coco loco which is a 5 minutes walk. The view was simply wonderful. Although I had the pool view it was still lovely. I actually went with my friend. We both had a blast and it's totally safe to walk around there. Although I don't recommend to walk out so late but overall a good experience!

A modern hotel on the beach with very comfortable rooms. There's lots to do at this resort. There's a large and really nice swimming pool in the central courtyard; a poolside bar, a restaurant and lounge steps away; a well-equipped fitness center and a family recreation room. A concierge can book additional activities.

We stayed here after for three days after a few days at the Arenal Observatory. It was the best place to relax after all of the hiking and 'adventurous' stuff we did. Staff were friendly and able to answer any questions we had. Breakfast was included each morning of our stay (eggs, plantains, bacon/sausage, tamales, rice and beans, fresh fruit, assorted pastries, etc.). The pool was amazing and the views were great. It was only a few steps away from the beach. Definitely recommend if you want a... Read more

We purchased a groupon which had us spending the last 3 nights at Flamingo. The kids and I all agreed that it was the best part of the trip. I recommend going ahead and splurging on the all inclusive package if you have children or enjoy some drinks. If you don't get the all inclusive package, you may be stressed by the unreal food prices and there simply aren't a lot of other restaurants around. If you are looking for an extremely posh hotel accommodation, this might not be the best choice. May... Read more

The suite better fit our family of five and the balcony with view was unbeatable. If we returned we would save to stay in the suite again.

Great service, enthusiastic staff, amazing food, delicious coffee, clean rooms, beautiful beach/pool, superb weather, and full of adventure. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. My family and I loved our stay and would be more than happy to return to this hotel. My only complaint was no local nightlife, finding activities in the evening would require you to drive 20 minutes or more.

There is nothing bad to say about this resort. My family and I reserved 4 rooms and had an awesome experience. The resort is absolutely stunning, from the spotlessly, clean hotel rooms, to the beautiful pool and grounds; and a truly awesome surf. All of the staff are so friendly and personable. Especially Orlando, Erika, Yeison and Elias. We will definitely be returning soon!!!! Thank you for giving us such an amazing experience and vacation!!!!!!!!!!!

I was a little bummed they didn't have chairs on the beach - although it's a shallow beach and at high tide the water comes up almost all the way so I'm sure that's why they can't.

We purchsed the all inclusive package for a premium price, which includes all food, beverages, including alcoholic beverages. I was shocked upon my departure to receive a bill for soda, water and beer that was stocked in our room refrigerator. Why would I drink the water in my refrigerator, when I could walked less than 100 yards and get one or several for free? These charges were not explained when we arrived, and I felt the charges were very unfair.

Pool bar service is slow and bartender Yesson was rude and dismissive when we asked for refills. He definitely did not make us feel welcome. We ended up having to order our drinks from the restaurant where the staff was courteous and kind. On the plus side, we were upgraded to an ocean view suite upon check in. This resort also offers scuba certification with open water dive. Could use renovations as the resort is starting to show its age.
