This spa experience was excellent. We got use of the hotel facilities. We’re able to have a luxurious soak in the hot tub with a glass of juice before our treatment. Liberal foot soak and glass of tea. Then Delmis did my deep tissue massage, she is SO STRONG! It was incredible. 60 min wasn’t enough. Hahaha. The whole experience was probably closer to 2 hours. Very relaxing I never felt rushed and honestly just had a lovely time. Well worth the money I would definitely go back again if I were in playa flamingo in the future.

We signed up for the romance package. Private mineral soak with chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne, then foot scrub and massage, followed by wonderful massage. Two hours of bliss! The massage therapists, Delmis and Janie, were excellent and very professional! Most relaxed I've been in ages.

I had a pedicure at the Spa and it was really nice. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to both myself and daughter. I really liked the ambiance and would definitely recommend it to others.

Can I say more.... I was so impressed with the level of expertise from the physical therapist 'Jerson Perez' working at this hotel Spa. It is the first time in my life that I have ever experienced such a quality massage other than through a therapist in a private practice in North America. I had a one-hour Onzen Massage, it was shocking to me that it was so good. I never expected a therapist of this ability in Costa Rica. I must congratulate the Hotel in obtaining such a wonderful therapist for it's Spa. I will absolutely be back again.

We stayed in the Flamingo Beach resort for the first week of our honeymoon.

We made the most of our time and got some scuba diving in so decided to treat ourselves to a couples massage on the final afternoon.

We started off with a foot soak and rub before having the Costa Rican hot stone massage.

I'm not totally certain but I'm fairly sure that I was so relaxed during this that I fell asleep during the massage as I was so relaxed.

I would certianly recommend anyone to go to Onzen on your final afternoon and really relax and unwind before travelling on.

Don't read into the last reviewer who obviously had there card stolen by someone. Her negativity in the review had nothing to do with the actual experience at the spa. I was there 7-1-15 and was told I can use all the facilities of the resort the entire day of my appointment, so I highly doubt they kicked caridadbou out unless they were acting up or causing trouble. My wife, sister, and I all had different massages done, and were overwhelmed by the professionalism and relaxation of the work performed. I had a 30 min foot and ankle reflexology and massage done. It was very relaxing. I have had tendon repair work done in my feet and visited several doctors and reflexologists who did less than the my therapist at onzen did for me. I left with my feet feeling better than ever. My sister and wife both are going back with me later this week for round 2! The price was 50 dollars for 30 mins, which is a great price for a professional reflexologist and massage therapy visit.

Had an Onzen signature massage by Cindy, who is the most talented therapist I've ever encountered. Most of the massage used hot stones, which in the past has not added much to the quality of my experience. Cindy, however, used the stones expertly to provide deep tissue work and release knotted muscles that no therapy has ever come close to relaxing. Recommended her to my wife, who voiced a similar reaction after her massage. Wish we could clone her.

I did not stay as a guest at the resort, but I did use their spa facilities, making an appointment on December 31st 2013 for a pedicure. I arrived, had my card processed, signed, and went for the pedicure. The pedicure itself was only so-so ... not great exfoliation and I wasn't given time to let the polish dry before being asked to leave the spa.

However, the problem came 2 weeks later, when I realized there were THREE transactions on my account, all from "FLAMINGO BEACH RESORT GUANACASTE." One was processed Jan 2, the other two were Jan. 13 -- almost two weeks after my appointment. I didn't think much of it at first, thinking it was just a banking error, but shortly thereafter, I found several fraudulent charges from iTunes on my account. I cancelled my CC, called my bank and iTunes, and was told that someone from Costa Rica had made the purchases. Then I asked my bank about the Flamingo Resort charges and they told me they were ALL initiated by someone at the resort. I called the resort and was VERY rudely treated by the front desk manager and the operations manager, both of whom told me that it was normal to be charged and then refunded and then charged (for a higher amount!) later. They then told me that their resort NEVER shows up on VISA as "Flamingo Beach Resort". They also said that they had "no idea how these later transactions (2 weeks later) happened, as CCs are not kept on file unless you rent a room." In short, after a very frustrating phone call with the hotel, nothing was resolved. They THEN suggested that the charges were authorization holds, which is not true -- authorization holds don't get posted to your bank account and then refunded. They then accused me of saying their staff are thieves. Hello? No, I didn't. But clearly something is wrong here if you don't even recognize your own Visa name on a transaction...

I have no idea what happened, but it was CLEARLY a case of someone using my credit card illegally because I have not used the card otherwise in CR (nervous about exactly this kind of thing!). The most frustrating thing about this is that the manager was completely unhelpful -- he kept giving ridiculous answers saying he didn't know, he didn't know how long it would take to find out information, that he wasn't inclined to help me, and that really, what could he do about it?

The hotel looked lovely -- if overpriced for the area -- and the staff were quite helpful (although I'm not fond of the bands they make you wear to "tag" you as a guest of the hotel. However, given my experience here, I would NEVER recommend this resort to ANYONE, because even if the majority of folks are nice, friendly and trustworthy, if anything goes wrong, this resort does not stand by the maxim of "the customer is always right."

Also, everyone monitor your credit card statements for at least a month afterwards -- you can never be too careful!
