Guanacaste Lodge
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Playa Flamingo
Reviewed 8 December 2013

The hosts were very friendly but they do not speak English very well and we don't speak Spanish, but this wasn't really a problem.

The rooms were big but the beds a bit hard to be honest.

Supermarket is next door and the "nice" beaches a 5min drive away!

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed at this hotel for 1 month and when we were leaving we felt like we are leaving our family.. First of all hotel is very clean and rooms are very large and comfortable..There is a lovely garden and a very nice and clean swimming pool.. Location is very close to the beach.. There is a supermarket nextdoor and best pizza restaurant in the town is 3 minutes away :)
I can never forget the great hearted people there.. especially I will be thankful forever for their amazing support and help in the period after I had an accident at the beach...

Nice little hotel, located close to all the beaches, Potrero, Flamingo, Conchal, Tamarindo, great service and place is very well kept. We had a blast and were able to go to all beaches since it is close to every one. The breakfast was great!

Room Tip: Any, very well kept, calm and on the main road

The Guanacasta Lodge put us smack in the middle of the most wonderful beaches in Costa Rica. The Lodge itself had a GREAT swimming pool and the rooms were comfortable. They served breakfast that was simple but included in the price. Attached to the hotel/motel was a GREAT restaurant and their food was Excellent.

The location is great for seeing multiple beaches. You are right between flamingo and brasilito. Luis the manager is very helpful. Pool is refreshing and clean. Rooms are nice and a good value. I will be back.

We stayed here in Feb 2012. we did not have a reservation in the area and we were in need of a place to stay. we tried the lodge by chance and they had room for us. the manager luis was great in helping us with everything and making us feel very welcome. the lodge is not on the beach but is in a great location for eating and seeing all the local beaches without much driving. the rooms are clean and the pool is awesome. very good value.

We stayed at Guanacaste lodge during our trip to Costa Rica at the beginning of January 2012. We stayed 5 nights and it was perfect for us. We were 2 couples and we rented two side-by-side rooms. The place is very calm and clean. Breakfast is included. For the price we payed during our stay there, it is absolutely perfect. There is a restaurant just beside the hotel, so we went there every night to get some drinks, before leaving for dinner. We eat at the restaurant twice and it was very good. The service was perfect as well.
I will recommend this hotel to anybody that would like a clean, cheap hotel in this area.
The only thing is that it is not on the beach, but it is at around 250 meters from there.

Room Tip: Cheap and quality rooms. Service was excellent.
