Margaritaville Beach Resort Playa Flamingo to Open November 1

Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa in Costa Rica has announced that it has closed to finalize preparations for its multimillion-dollar rebranding. New project details have been released on the new Margaritaville Beach Resort Playa Flamingo, which will debut with a soft opening on November 1. 

The rebranding will include a new modern design in all rooms and public areas, signature Margaritaville brand dining concepts, new activities for kids and adults, and more. Reservations are now available, with special soft opening rates and an early booking discount for travel in 2019.

Guestrooms & Exteriors

Guests will be greeted by an all-new lobby with views of the resort’s refreshed pool area – and beyond that, the shores of Flamingo Beach. All buildings have been painted white accented with a blue trim, and an enhanced driveway with new water features will provide a tropical vibe. 

A 12-foot giant blue flip-flop sculpture is being added to the lobby, bringing a Margaritaville signature design element to the resort. Guestrooms will showcase a “casual-luxe” design and “soothing” color palette. Catering to families, the re-designed resort will now have specialty Family Suites with bunk beds and more.

Dining Concepts

Several new signature Margaritaville food and beverage concepts will include:

  • Banana Wind Café, with locally-inspired dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as frozen concoctions.
  • License to Chill Bar, the new rendition of the resort’s swim-up pool bar, will now offer an extended menu for lunch, snacks and a variety of light bites along with its signature cocktails, beer, wine and other refreshing beverages.
  • 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill, serving up items such as burgers, tacos, seafood dishes and signature cocktails along with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. A stage will feature live entertainment multiple nights each week, and multiple large screen TV’s will keep guests up-to-date with sports.
  • Capriccio’s Pizza Bistro & Café, the resort’s classic restaurant overlooking the pool, will continue to offer guests gourmet pizzas, pastas and salads.

An all-new indoor/outdoor kitchen has been added to facilitate poolside orders from License to Chill Bar, along with a new pool deck with additional seating.

Amenities & Activities

The interior of the new resort will provide guests a new look for the resort’s amenities, including a 24-hour fitness center and family center, and a theater room screening the latest movies in Spanish and English. The resort has three pools, one with the swim-up License to Chill Bar, a covered children’s pool, and an activity pool with a volleyball net. It also has a spa, lighted tennis courts, a photography studio, a water sports center and an on-site tour concierge.

Margaritaville Beach Resort Flamingo Beach will offer a revamped line-up of activities for guests including aerobics, aqua aerobics, dance, Zumba, Pilates, tai chi and yoga. Special activities will be designed just for kids, and babysitting services will be available. Unique excursions will showcase Costa Rica, with day trips departing daily to popular nearby attractions and an on-site concierge to help guests decide what they will love most.

Meeting & Wedding Facilities

Couples looking to exchange their vows against a tropical backdrop can do so at Margaritaville Beach Resort Playa Flamingo. With a team of professionals readily available, the resort is giving couples a new fully customizable One Particular Harbour Ceremony Package

The newly refurbished resort has facilities for small corporate groups, offering two fully renovated and equipped meeting rooms on its ground floor – the 1,784 square-foot “Fins Left” and the 1,480 square-foot “Fins Right.”
