Margaritaville Beach Resort Playa Flamingo celebrated its opening in Costa Rica with a festive ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, November 30. More than 100 special guests gathered at the property to mark the successful completion of its multi-million-dollar rebranding. The 120-room destination resort is located on a Blue Flag Certified ecological beach in the Guanacaste Province in Costa Rica, just minutes from some of the area’s best attractions.
“Today is an exciting day for Margaritaville Beach Resort Playa Flamingo – one we’ve been anticipating for quite some time, and we are thrilled to officially welcome Margaritaville to Costa Rica in the best way possible, with food, drinks, and fun,” said Pedro D’oñas, general manager of Margaritaville Beach Resort Playa Flamingo.
Throughout the ribbon-cutting celebration, attendees enjoyed light bites and tropical drinks from the resort’s new dining concepts, including 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill, along with live entertainment. A program of remarks featured D’oñas, along with Carlos J. Rodriguez, Chairman & CEO of Driftwood Acquisitions & Development, which owns the resort, and Rick Cunningham, Vice President of Hotel Development for Margaritaville.
“It’s an honor to welcome travelers from near and far to the new Margaritaville Beach Resort Playa Flamingo,” said Rodriguez. “We’re proud to have overseen the successful renovation and rebranding of the resort and are confident it will make a great addition to Costa Rica’s booming hospitality scene.”
