Overview

Your escape to Margaritaville Beach Resort at Costa Rica’s Playa Flamingo takes you to a relatively undiscovered beach in the Pacific northwest. Margaritaville offers guests a four-star resort experience for a surprisingly affordable price. Inspired by Jimmy Buffett’s lyrical life as a tropical sailor, the 120-room resort reflects all aspects of relaxing ashore, swinging in hammocks, and sipping freshly made fruit cocktails without a care in the world. Resort amenities feature an ocean view restaurant, roof top lounge, swimming pools, swim-up Tiki-bar, tennis courts, and a modern gym. There’s a host of changing daily activities, such as aerobics classes, and a beachfront yoga deck. A large conference room can lend itself to business retreats or provide the perfect accommodation for a memorable beach wedding. The Family Center contains a variety of games, plus a kids’ pool and playground. An array of relaxing onsite Spa services can be purchased.

Just a few steps across a dirt road and you’re on a gorgeous stretch of beach and shade trees. Beautiful Playa Flamingo has long been overlooked until road improvements allowed for easier access. The gentle tides make it safe for swimming and body surfing. It holds the prestigious Blue Flag designation for its clean waters, unspoiled beach, and planned sustainability. The small town of Playa Flamingo is experiencing rapid upscale development, but the protected quiet beachfront remains pristine. Playa Flamingo provides popular tours for off-shore sport fishing and scuba diving. During season, nesting leatherback turtles can be found 12 miles away. Several area beaches have surf breaks and Playa Tamarindo offers an exciting nightlife.

While enjoying your stay at Margaritaville, you can relax in a hammock, lounge at the pool, sip something cold and delicious from the swim up bar, participate in one of the daily activities such as salsa dancing or taking a guided eco-walk. The fitness center features modern work out machines and the tennis courts are lighted at night. There’s a lot of fun at the Family Center with pool tables, ping-pong, bingo, and even a movie theater! A specially covered kids pool helps protect them from the sun. You can also rent a kayak, bicycle, or boogie board to play at the beach.

Looking for that lost shaker of salt? Look no further than Margaritaville’s Banana Wind Restaurant serving up delicious locally sourced seafood concoctions and grass-fed beef seasoned with fresh organic herbs and vegetables grown right at the resort. Both the open-air section and air-conditioned area of the restaurant faces amazing sunsets that blaze across the ocean every night. A Pizza Bistro provides Italian fare in the evening plus delicious coffee and freshly made pastry in the morning. You can also dine in the 5 O’clock Somewhere rooftop bar to catch the sunset. And down at the pool, there’s The License to Chill swim up bar. At Margaritaville you’ll have a choice of meal plans from no meals to all-inclusive, or breakfast only.

The 120 light, airy, tropically decorated rooms at Margaritaville Beach Resort all include air-conditioning, cable TV, safe, mini-fridge, and a coffee maker, among other items. Guests can choose from a variety of room options depending on the size of their party and their personal preferences. Please refer to the Amenities Section for a complete list of Room Types and what is included with each room. Overall, the Margaritaville Beach Resort provides a unique tropical oceanside experience with plenty of onsite activities in a gorgeous, relatively undiscovered beachfront location.

Bathroom could use some updating but the room was lovely and quiet. Food was good although the Italian restaurant could use a little more atmosphere. We were very happy with the all inclusive. The beach was beautiful for walking but not all that comfortable for sitting on (fumes from cars driving by). Staff was very nice and friendly. Nice music in the bar every night.

Loved this place! Loved being so close to the beach. The staff was great!

Food service was slow, hotel started playing loud music at 630am

If i could make one recommendation it would be To get a decent wine list. Spa was amazing and reasonably priced. Front desk atatf super accomodating. New years eve was a blast. I didnt like being on a main road and maybe the resort could try to prevent school buses from blocking guest room views. But we loved our stay

12/30/2018

Nice resort and nice beach. The New Years party was fantastic. I would stay here again

12/28/2018

Had a leak in the ceiling above our shower, but otherwise the accommodations were good. The staff and food were excellent.

For a Jimmy Buffet hotel, we had no idea what to expect. This place was great. We would love to stay here again. All of the staff were fantastic, but Luis and Fionna were particularly great.

Nice resort, nice food and staff. Beach is beautiful, but not as beautiful as I expected, although i can still give the beach a 4 star for its beauty.

We had a couple of friendly servers and staff people, but there were definitely a couple who either ignored us or didn't want to be bothered, especially in comparison with the staff at Arenal Springs. I was super appreciative of balloons and fruit they put in my room on my birthday. There were not a lot of dining options during the day. It wasn't too crowded which was nice.

12/08/2018

We had to change rooms twice because the aircondition wasn't working. I have to say though that the Manager went above and beyond and gave us one of the biggest rooms in the hotel for the rest of our stay to make up for having to pack up twice and move rooms. Breakfast wasn't really that good. The Italian Restaurant at the hotel was wonderful. Very clean hotel.

Had a great time!
