I just stayed a couple of days at Flamingo Beach resort as part of an organized tour of Costa Rica and I was quite disappointed with the choice. Maybe this is not the best season, but the area looked quite lonely and somehow "abandoned". It felt like this was a nice place to stay years ago, but at the moment it lacks of any charm. The hotel is a bit old and not renovated, it does not feel like Costa Rica, you could be anywhere in US and it would be the same. In fact the entire hotel is packed with all inclusive groups that enjoy spending the day just sitting at the bar, if this is what you are looking for then this is the right place. Rooms are very clean and spacious, but again no particular charm. It feels like the hotel is somehow understaffed. The beach is ok but nothing special, we could not swim as waves were too big and you could not even sit closeby. We found a nice place for lunch not far from the hotel (coco loco) and an excellent restaurant for dinner just outside the hotel (Angelina). We moved now to the Manuel Antonio area which is a true paradise in comparison. So overall flamingo beach is ok if you are looking for a US feel, old facilities and no special nature or blue sea.
