Visiting this resort with y friend in a wheelchair was a good experience. The resort has elevators in 2 places to get us where we needed to go. The kiddie pool provided shade and waiters did a great job of keeping our drinks full. Upon arrival I was disappointed that we could not get up to the bar/restaurant upstairs near the beach. The staff was great and offered the menu downstairs. I was concerned about only 3 restaurants on property and an all inclusive stay. They were fantastic and offered and made us special order meals on a regular basis. This resort was a good choice.

Hotel's Favourite
Myself, my wife and our 10 year old daughter enjoyed a wonderful eight night stay at the Margaritaville Hotel. This was not our first or even our second stay at this property, in fact we had visited here four or five times previous to Margaritaville taking over the running and operations of the hotel, and so we were very familiar with ‘Flamingo’ both before and after the Margaritaville transition and the Jimmy Buffet vibe and mantra had its corporate theme of approval stamped on the resort. Not in a bad way though, not at all, I am happy to add. I have always given this resort top reviews on an annual basis and that is still the case now after our February visit once again this year. We have always been very fond of the staff at Margaritaville and fortunately many of those kind ladies and gents are still plying their trade at the hotel. That is a big net positive and plus, since we have always been treated so well by so many, if not all of them - Manuel, Elias, (Jaime, Erica, Janette - Capriccios), Manolo, Orlando, Michael, Cynthia (TAM Tours) et al, et al, et al. Everyone across the entire spectrum of employment at the hotel are great ambassadors, super sound, friendly and good people - Thank you all for taking such good care of myself and my family on our most recent visit. We went to the rodeo one evening in Brasilito (Manuel’s recommendation- thanks pal) which was interesting, we did two catamaran sunset trips - Panache was the best (booked expertly through the always helpful lady Cynthia at TAM Tours in the lobby), also a day long trip to Diamanté Animal and Adventure Park, two dives with the on site Rocket Frog Divers (English Hannah and Taryn from Savannah (via Belfast like me!) were both professional, fun and excellent) and plenty of invigorating swims in the Ocean and relaxing family dips in the pool amongst daily Temple bar esque visits to the swim up Oasis for a yarn and a brewski served up in always fun fashion by Elias or Manolo. The bar food was great, also dinners at Capriccios Restaurant under the stewardship of Jaime (best waiter and loveliest bloke) were delicious, breakfasts were okay, not as good as on previous visits perhaps, but the wonderful Costa Rican coffee and a table outside in the mornings made the lack of porridge and limited variety of buffet not that much of a big deal. The live entertainment upstairs in the bar was always enjoyable when that was on the itinerary on some evenings and the servers were always friendly and hospitable. I did politely ask at reception three times for a second chair to be allocated to our room / balcony (like all the other rooms had) but we never did receive twin chairs, which was a marginal disappointment, but yet again, hardly a major grievance and don’t read much into that minor omission. Hopefully we shall continue visiting Margaritaville in our future trips to Costa Rica. We love the country, we love the lifestyle and we love the people and I’m happy to say that Margaritaville enhances that overall complimentary and positive experience myself and my family enjoy and have enjoyed on many occasions as your guests. Keep on keeping on. Cheers. Be well my Margaritaville friends.

My wife and I just left the resort and had a great time. The first day we met a man Minor Gonzales just outside the hotel property. He has access to all types of excursions. We signed up for an awesome sunset cruise. We told him what we were interested in seeing in Costa Rica. We had rented a car so one day he went with us for an entire day. Took us special places to see monkeys, huge iguanas, beautiful waterfall. Rain forest and saw a bright blue river celeste rio. You tell him what you want and he will make sure you see it The hotel had an amazing staff. Everyone pleasant and the entire hotel took covid protocols to the maximum. Even making sure all guests followed the rules. Hotel was very clean. Beautiful pool. Direct access to the very nice beach. All the food we had there was very good but not a lot of change choices. We have never stayed at an all inclusive as we like to explore. From what we observed there are probably better all inclusive resorts but for us it was absolutely perfect. Would go back in a heartbeat
