Perfect in every way
Perfect in every way
We spent several nights at Casa Chocolate and we just loved it. The location is amazing as it's right on the beach. The villa itself is fully stocked with high end furnishings and amenities. The personal concierge was there to help with anything we needed. The AC worked perfectly, the bed was incredibly comfortable, the pools were great and the gym had just what you need. Waking up and taking long walks on the beach in the mornings were a great way to start the day. They had a kayak for us to use whenever we wanted. We stocked our fridge on the way into town for our breakfasts and had lunches at the little place on the beach right next to the development. We drove to a few great Italian spots for dinner and really enjoyed our trip. As I have family who lives in Costa Rica I will be staying here again and highly recommend it.

Steps to the beach!
Steps to the beach!
Our family had a great stay at Casa Chocolate. The main reason we picked it was its location -- steps to the beach! We loved the infinity pool & were the only ones in the pool most of the time. There were always towels available. We definitely used the pool bar -- the kids loved the smoothies! We also made use of the kayaks (& life jackets), boogie boards, & sand toys & gym. The villa had all the amenities we needed (kids loved having the Apple TV to escape the brutal afternoon sun). We used the grill, too, to cook our own dinner one night. It was great to walk to Coco Loco for dinner (twice). Loved the breakfast nook in the master bedroom. The staff were all wonderful. We were especially grateful to Jonathan who called a doctor when our daughter got sick. Our only suggestion: little tags on the light switches, or a map of the switches & lights. We spent so much time turning lights on/off trying to find the right ones. & sometimes still couldn't find them! We had an amazing week at the villa!

Owner response: Your suggestion about the lighting map is great, thank you! We'll get on it immediately. To be honest, it's a little confusing even for us sometimes, although the soft-on and full dimming features are very nice. We're very happy you enjoyed your stay, and hope to have you back soon.
We had a wonderful vacation at the Palms on Playa Flamingo. The property is truly beachfront -- no long treks to and from our villa. The beach is awesome, and the ocean/waves were wonderful -- perfect water temperature, nice waves for body surfing/boogie boarding. Got good use out of the boogie boards and paddle boards that the Palms have on hand -- I am nearly a pro SUP'er now!! The pool is very nice and directly approximate to the beach. Nice to have the availability of drinks/snacks/lunch at poolside also when desired. All the staff at the Palms were very nice/helpful/accommodating, especially concierge Roy. Nice, casual on the beach restaurant just 100 yards down the beach (Coco Loco) and other good restaurants in the town just a pleasant 15 minute walk down the beach. Gas grills available on property which we used 3 nights to cook our dinner. Our villa was tastefully decorated, nicely outfitted. Master bedroom king size bed awesome with its tempurpedic mattress. We had some difficulties with the toilet on the main floor which limited its use during the week, but I guess those things happen and the staff was responsive and apologetic about the inconvenience to us. Only suggestions we have is to consider a larger dining table in the unit (We have a family of 6, but only 4 chairs for the dining table and seemed to be enough room for a larger table and six chairs), a few more dinner plates/eating utensils, and a few more lounge chairs on the patio. Highly recommend this location!!

Owner response: Thank you so much for your helpful review. Since this villa is basically new, we may have unintentionally overlooked a few details so we're very appreciative of all comments from guests and will take them very seriously. I have already placed an order with my furniture supplier for a larger glass tabletop and two extra chairs for the dining area. I will be taking with me on my next visit another 6-person dining and flatware set. I will also be visiting a few outdoor furniture vendors to add to the patio downstairs. My aim is to make all of my guests feel completely at home and will strive to make the experience as unforgettable as possible.

About the owner: Chocolate maker and chocolatier, owner and operator of Danta Chocolate in Guatemala.
Why the Owner Chose Flamingo Beach:
Always loved Costa Rica as an investment destination, and The Palms, with its unique beachfront ownership (only 3% of Costa Rica's oceanfront is titled property) seemed like the perfect choice. The clincher was the super-short, 30-second walk to fabulous Flamingo Beach! The bonus is The Palms' amazing staff, who make you feel like you're staying at the finest 5-star resort.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Since The Palms is a private residence club, guests get to reap the benefits of staying at a private condo, while getting the services and amenities of a luxury hotel. The Palms only has 34 villas, so no matter how full it is, there's always ample space in the property to feel uncrowded and at ease.
