My husband and I were married at Flamingo Beach Resort at the end of April. We stayed there for 5 nights with 50 of our wedding guests. Everything about our stay was perfect! The resort is amazing, beach is beautiful, food is great, and staff is fantastic and extremely professional. The resort is on the small side, which added to...

Upon arrival we were not checked in until exactly 3:00pm (their check in time). It was 97 degrees and we sat in the lobby sweating for two hours. The hotel was not full and we found this very odd. The beds were very comfortable, however, we found the bathrooms to be gross. The toilet wouldn't flush and tub wouldn't drain,...

Flamingo B, Owner at Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa, responded to this review

As the owner of the Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa, I was mortified to read your review and I apologize for the negative experience you had at our hotel. I do not know the date of your stay, but If the hotel was not extremely full at the time you checked in, you should have been accommodated quickly into a...

The location of this resort was absolutely perfect for us, thanks to previous trip advisor reviewers who helped us choose the town and resort. Gorgeous white sand beach, steps away from the large pool. Nice sized clean, pool-view room in the southwest building, with a very comfortable bed. Although they did not have us in the king bed pool view...

We loved our stay at Flamingo Beach Hotel. We stayed at an ocean view suite and the view was perfect. The hotel has a huge swimming pool and part of it is on the shade so for the ones that do not want to much sun or for those that are with children it is a plus. I have received...

We recently stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The hotel was nice and had all of the amenities that you could want. The pool was nice but the beach was amazing. The hotel sits right on the beach so you only need to walk a few steps and you're on the beach. The hotel also provides lounge chairs for its...

My family (me, husband, and two children, ages 9 and 2) stayed at the Flamingo Resort for three days and had a very relaxing seaside vacation. The resort is small and charming, perfect for a family with kids. The pool: The pool area is very nice, not too big and not too small. I love the ledges where you can...

There are so many good things to say about this resort that I'm not sure what to start with. We like to stay at all-inclusive resorts when we visit somewhere for the first time and this hotel definitely is one of our favorites. Unlike many all-inclusive resorts that only serve a buffet, at the Flamingo all-inclusive guests can order from...

Overall we had a good experience at the Flamino Beach Resort and Spa. The staff was friendly and helpful...finding us a room to check-in to early (that had recently been rennovated), providing a second room to use across the hall when our air conditioner malfuntioned (sounded an alarm every 20 minutes). We didn't want to switch rooms because none of...

Walking up the front stairs and seeing the sunset right through the lobby and across to the beach was a fabulous first impression. Our room was on the second floor and was considered a suite which we needed due to having four people. It was a nice room and the beds are extremely comfortable. You should know all suites face...

We spent 4 nights here after being up in the Arenal Volcano area. Very relaxing resort. We had a great breakfast everyday and then headed to the beach only steps from the resort. They provide towels and chairs to hotel guests. There are trees to sit under if you need shade. Also you can rent an umbrella if you want...

“If you want the main pool view then it appears you need odd numbered rooms. The rooms with hammocks were on ground level.”
