My wife & myself much prefer smaller boutique type hotels, by reading the reviews on here it sounded ideal.After a 5 hour delay with Thomsons, the long flight from the UK & hour transfer we were not in the best of moods by the time we arrived. On getting to the resort our mood lifted massively, the staff were just so friendly, understanding & efficient. We were in our room within 15mins(a record btw). The morning dawn saw me down on the beach, a truly beautiful place. Scoped out some nice overhanging trees to the right of the hotel for my wife to get some shade while I explored some of the coast with my fishing rod, then back for our first breakfast. The food was great for the whole 2 weeks. Breakfast catered for most tastes, lunches we are not fussed for but seemed to be plenty, evening meals were great. You could either go buffet or a la carte. We ate buffet most finding plenty of options, a la carte when we did have it was superb(mahi mahi awesome!), best of the stay was a Spanish Mackerel I caught off beach that the chef cooked for us. Entertainment was low key which suited us, just a singer in the sunset bar a couple of times a week. The hotel is definitely missing out big style by not having more traditional singers & guitarists playing, it creates a lovely atmosphere. The best singer we heard in all our time in Costa Rica was the barman Rene at this hotel, if you get invited to management welcome meeting make sure you go, this seems to be the only place he sings, such a shame he is so talented. Main highlights for us was how friendly the people are in Costa Rica, the staff especially so. Whether on a guided trip, or while walking an isolated beach as the sun came up with my fishing rod, if you met a local it was a smile & a greeting often followed by the words that mean so much Pura Vida!
My mother and I visited Costa Rica 4/12-19. We stayed at Flamingo Beach Resort the last 4 nights of our trip in 2203. The hotel was 20 mins away from Tamarindo-strip of stores, restaurants and a spa on the beach ($50 taxi RT) and 10 mins away from Conchal beach-shells and white sand ($20 taxi RT). It was 1 hr away from Liberia airport ($90 each way). We truly enjoyed our stay. The room was nice. The beds were super comfortable. The room had a shower and tub. The tub was a pretty good size. We had a balcony looking at the pool. The only thing I had an issue with was that we didn't have enough hangers and we had to request an iron and iron board for the room. The buffet breakfast in Arenas restaurant was delicious. Charly at Arenas was fun and made sure we were satisfied at breakfast everyday. The pizza at Capriccios was to die for. Jaime at Capriccios was friendly and helpful. He actually helped us calculate colones. He was eager to find out where we were from. He told us about places in the area to go and referred us to the concierge for the best tours. The pool bar Magallanes had great food. Isella (concierge) helped us pick out the best tours for our lifestyle and told us about places that we could go to close by to shop or lay on the beach. She packed us a on the go breakfast for our early morning tour and had something special delivered for my mom's bday. She told us her honest opinion about tours and wasn't all about getting our money. Manuel (bellhop) was always smiling and eager to help us with whatever we needed. Dayshan at the front desk is the one that made our visit worthwhile. He treated us like we were family. When we checked in he recommended we purchase the breakfast plan to save money and upgraded us to a better room. He was very concerned about my mom having to walk up and down the stairs everyday so he made sure we were on the main floor.
I didn't want to leave this hotel.I have only just got back yesterday and I was there 2 weeks from April 3rd to April 17th.I was in room 1220 which over looked the small pool at the back. I would have liked a room with main pool view/sea view but apparently the company I traveled with do not allocate those to their customers.There are plenty of sunbeds round the pool but not enough umbrellas for shade really. There are 8 umbrellas in total that are large with a small table/shelf attached to it. As I was there during the Easter week it was quite busy around the pool. A few times people put towels down but then hardly used the sunbeds during the day which isn't fair. And when it was busy you had to be up early to get the sunbed/shade you needed. There was entertainment most nights but not every night. And there are activities during the day in the pool with Greddy who was great. I was known as Scotland lol!!The food was good but isn't A La Carte just in case you're expecting it. I thought the portion sizes were huge, way too much for me!Now to the staff......totally amazing!!! There's Charly, Roy, Jose, Christopher, Wilberth, Rene, Greddy.....the pool bar guys (apologies for this guys but I am terrible with names).The only one I found to be miserable was a guy that dished out the sunbed towels - maybe that's why he does that job!I will go back without a doubt!!
Terrific family vacation to this wonderful beach front resort in Costa Rica! Staff were extremely friendly and provided excellent service! Great Big shout outs to Cristopher, Elias, Manolo, Diana & Charly! They made a lasting impression and really made our vacation! Resort was spotless! Environmentally friendly, excellent food with beautiful sunsets! Definitely a vacation to remember!The Rios-Castro Family
Great family resort located steps from beach. Wonderful pool. Great restaurant at Capriccios -highly recommend. Nice breakfast buffet. Happy hour 2 for 1 drinks daily 5 to 6. Family game area, movie theater, workout facility, shaded kiddie pool. WiFi needs help. Connected to service, but slow and spotty. Not that you should be working while here, but you won't get much done remotely! 3G signal better. Ditch the screens and enjoy :)
