Nice but could be better.

We enjoyed staying in the Flamingo Beach Resort and Spa for 3 nights but felt that this us a hotel that could be improved. Staff were friendly but lacked a certain 'can do' attitude, there was no real attempt to please the customer at any time. Breakfast was delicious and the pool area, plus the location right on Playa Flamingo, were real highlights. The ripoff was comfortable and the AC worked well. Gym was fine too. Overall a good, but nit a great, hotel which has the potential to be so much better.

Costa Rica Tour

Der erste Eindruck war sehr gut. Koffer wurde in die Zimmer getragen. Das Zimmer war im Parterre und hatte einen starken beissenden Chlor Geruch, so dass die Augen tränden. Im Kühler befanden sich kein Getränke und die Obstschale war leer. Dies stellten wir nur fest, da unsere Freunde einen vollen Kühler und eine gefüllte Obstschale vorhanden. Ich habe beide Zimmer zuammengebucht.Im Bett waren in der Zwischendecke noch Haare vom Vorgänger. Das WLan funktioniert am ersten Tag mit etwas Glück, am zweitwn gar nicht mehr. Super war, dss der Starnd direkt vor dem Hotel ist. Beim Dessert gab es ei Eisbecher mit Büchsenfrüchten. Das Frühstück war sehr gut und reichhaltig. Bei nach der Abreise hatte niemand das Interesse die Koffer zum Auto zu tragen, schade.
