This hotel suffers from lack of detail. Allow me to explain: The good: price is good and the hotel does have a great ocean view. The So-so: most everything fits here. Food is not great, but not bad either, just food, kinda forgettable. There are tons of missing details that in and of themselves are not important but when you...

Don Rodrigo, thank you for taking the time to write such extensive and complete review, we appreciate your comment. We are working still in improve our hotel, I won´t lie, it has been an expensive and slow process. That is the main reason of our very low rate, no other hotel has the view and location that Paradise Flamingo has...

This was the first (and only) place I found in Costa Rica that I felt like I got true value for my money. You are nickled and dimed everywhere in Costa Rica and that isn't even taking into consideration that everything is overpriced to begin with. We showed up looking for a place and they gave us a great room...

The first impression you get of this hotel is the up hill slope and the crowded car park where our rented car was dented. The reception people seem clueless at all times but eventually they deliver. I f you are in the Ocean view rooms you get to carry your baggage by yourself down the staircase which at the time...

Can't complain about a thing. Our server, Charlie was very accommodating and friendly. Upon his recommendation we started off with 4 different types of ceviche which were served with plantain chips. All of them were delicious. The 4 fish dishes that we shared were awesome as well. Rice with Octopus, Sea Bass, Lobster, and Mahi Mahi were great and more...

We stayed in room 503. It is now called Paradise Dream Hotel and Casino. First, I'd like to admit I'm a lighter sleeper and work night shift. The receptionist, Shirley, when we arrived and left was fabulous. She and our waiter, Charlie, were the only ones deserving of any stars. She was kind and allowed me to try some Spanish,...

Hi! thank you for your comments. I am sorry that you had a bad concept about our facilities. The work that was being done in the room next to you had an issue that needed to be fixed right away, an unsuspected problem was the cause, that is the reason why we did not offer you another room earlier, but...

This is an interesting place. Wonderful views, private beach, nice gardens. The stairs to the beach have been renovated and there is some major ongoing work to render the outside of the building more appealing. Unfortunately there are several caveats. Important considerations are: NO ELEVATORS (you need to carry your suitcase down the stairs, since the entrance is on the...
