The beach was great. The pool was good. The bar was meh. The restaurants were disappointing. The entertainment was non-existent after dark.

We were suppossed to stay in october 2017 but had to reschedule for april 2018 even though there was a delay in our visit, we could not have had a better time. The resort looks just like the pictures. The staff was so pleasant and helpful. We did not want to leave and plan on returning.

On the Beach

Pros: Right on the beach. The room was large and very comfortable. The pool is very nice as is the upstairs bar which is opened to the outdoors.
Cons: The male staff in particular can use customer service training. Just apologize and remedy the matter rather than argue it's partly your fault.
Location: Lost of water sports and activities; sunset cruises, kayaking etc. Many local eateries with very good local food.
The hotel has a perfect location. You are right on the beach. There are kayaks for rent and they equip the beach front with chaise lounge chairs. The stay comes with breakfast which has a good variety of options. I would not recommend eating at the hotel restaurant as just down the street are very nice local eateries with much better ceviche and other offerings. The staff, while polite, seemed to be ready to blame us for failings in service. Upon registration, they did not ask us for a credit card for additional charges. When we went to the restaurant, they stated that we did not have a credit card on file for charging the dinner. When we noted that they had not asked us upon registration, they responded that it was out responsibility to have thought of it. When we ordered a salad that was advertised as having goat cheese, we were served a salad that had shredded mozzarella. We asked the wait staff about the cheese as it was clearly not goat cheese. She came back and said the chef stated that they had run out of goat cheese and served feta instead; it was not feta. We stated that if they no longer had goat cheese they should have notified us so that we could make an informed decision. This point was also argued rather than apologizing and taking a simple recommendation that would have made a better experience for the customer. Several other incidents like this took place. The staff is not rude; could use customer service training.

Dated hotel

Pros: see above
Cons: Remodeling the rooms
Location: right on the beach which is nice, but nothing else close by to do.
Stayed 3 days. Breakfast buffet was always very good. Hotel restaurant ordering takes too long. Right on the beach. Good security at the hotel. Rooms have safes. There is not much in the area, so you are pretty confined to the hotel unless you are willing to drive 1 1/2 hours. Pool bar is nice. Hotel seems pretty old so take that into consideration.

Beautiful Beach

Pros: Breakfast, which was included, was very good. Those few meals we had at the restaurant were also good albeit a little pricey. Staff are very good and
Cons: There are power glitches in the middle of the night. Not long. Could be a few seconds, or a minute or two but it causes your AC system to beep. That
Location: The ATV tour really showcases the beaches and the surrounding area and how poor it is. Definitely recommend it. Coco Loco restaurant on the beach.
The hotel and staff are very good. The hotel identifies you as a guest with a brightly colored bracelet (which also identifies you to everyone else you meet in town or in a national park). This bracelet helps to keep unwanted individuals off the property. Pool is spectacular and the beach is equally as nice. Sunsets are incredible. Going to and from the beach you have to run a gauntlet of individuals selling deep sea fishing, ATV rides, hats, and massages. You get used to it. They have an outside agency that works as a Concierge that can help you book tours. It seems that everywhere you go, and for any destination you are considering, i.e. natural springs or canopy tours, you will have to pay. Its different than going to a US National Park. US dollars are welcome and equally traded. The Beach does have fish so I would bring fishing gear if you are so inclined. (difficult to rent fishing gear). Sailboats and Catamarans are a nice way to spend the afternoon.

Dear G, Thank you for having selected Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa and taking the time to share your review. We are glad to read about your positives points and your location descripcion of the surroundings areas, once again thank you for bringing to our attention the areas where we can improve our services and you can be sure they are being taken on board. We really don't recommend to buy tours outside the resort because this informal agencies usually don't have insurance in case of accidents or when tourist get hurt,, also they don't pay taxes and people could be rip off. About the power off, we have a power source plant in order to keep the resort with the electricity service for more than 24 hours and when the cut occurs usually the plant takes around 30 seconds to starts. Thank you again for your time and we look forward to your next visit! Best regards
