Recent Flamingo Beach reviews

  • Quiet and peacefull

    "Pro’s: The house sits on a beautiful and peaceful piece of beach. On average I’d say there were no more than 20 other people walking/playing on the 3 miles of coast. The ocean is warm, waves were perfect for a 4 year old and the undertow was light. Boogie boarding was a daily ritual. The pool was engineered perfectly, shallow part for kids, deep portion for adults and a nice sitting area in the other corner. Weather was consistent, ~95, ~75 no clouds. Thank goodness for the new AC and fridge. The house sits perfectly on the plot. The house was clean and Thomas / Janet were always there by 9am to tend to other matters. Joan, Dervin and G were accommodating and great to work with. They had the screen doors repaired and lubed as they didn’t move well. Neutral: The house has a security system and a local nightly security guard. I appreciate safety but at the same time it made some of us uneasy. The security system is loud! No shortage of little bugs and ants. They don’t bite but you’ll find them in the kitchen and we would find ants crushed in the bed with us. You’ll hear critters running on the roof in the AM - the roofline and walls are sealed very well, no worries. Con’s: The house is showing its age. It’s built very well, just needs a good craftsman to give it a once over. Our bedroom had some paint bubbling off the walls, some doors are warped and really loud, the shelving system in two of the bedrooms were pulled off the wall. We found 2 cockroaches, 1 in our bedroom and 1 in the common bathroom that we quickly killed. The dishwasher was serviced 4 times and never worked properly. The lounge chair brackets were rusted or broken on two of four. The umbrella could only be used about 5% of the time because it was flimsy – it flew out one day and needed to be repaired by Thomas. The wi-fi had difficulty connecting with our Apple devices. Weirdly enough, the one Android phone and Windows computer connected without issues the entire trip. The 4 iPads and 5 iPhones only had wi-fi for ½ the trip. Overall, it was a quiet and fun house to visit – you rent it for the great pool, good ocean view, laid back local establishments and relaxing area. When I have time I will add notes to my trip advisor page."

  • A Week in Paradise

    "My family of 4 spent a week at the Palms in Keith's Villa in March, 2015. Having been there earlier and having stayed at another not so great villa in the same complex, we were a bit apprehensive about the quality of the villa. Fear not. This Villa is a true gem, decorated tastefully with international art and crafts. The linens and towels are of top quality. The owner is a true host, not just someone you rent from. He took great care of us, and addressed any possible concerns (such as a complicated but working coffeemaker, replaced immediately). Every villa is individually owned, and you are at the mercy of the owner's tastes and budget. Keith goes the extra mile to make sure you have a great vacation at Playa Flamingo. We arranged for a private tour of the Palo Verde National Park with Eco Travel. It is cheaper and better than going through the options given at the Residence Club. Our guide Carlos was wonderfully knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Highly recommended. Playa Flamingo is probably the best beach in Costa Rica. We will return to this villa soon. Thank you Keith!"

  • Beachfront Condo

    "I enjoyed our stay at the Flamingo beach. The condo was beautifully outfitted and very comfortable, air conditioning was outstanding. Renee, the Condo manager, was very friendly and helpful, before and during the stay. Her recommendations of tour guides was most appreciated. The only fault I would bring up was the water pressure was terrible, This made showering and getting rid of the fine sand from the beach almost impossible. By the end of our stay I had sand in the bedding that I couldn't get rid off. In hindsight I should have contacted Renee but didn't. I am not sure if she could have helped but I am sure she would have tried. I think that the problem was with the entire complex as they were not watering any of the grass at the grounds even though sprinklers were present. This made the grounds somewhat brown and not as pretty as they could have been. Yes we were there during the dry season. Although the Condo sleeps 4 it only had living room furniture and dining furniture for 2 which meant the balcony furniture had to be moved in for all of us, a party of 3, to be together. When I had booked the condo the prior pictures showed different furniture that would have actually accommodated 4 people. This was unfortunate as we were constantly moving chairs in and out. The balcony over the bay was an oasis with the waves crashing against the shore most relaxing. There are no grocery stores in walking distance of the condo other than a very overpriced convenience store so consider picking up your groceries on the way in if you do not have transportation. Our tour guides that we had on Renee's recommendation were always most helpful with stopping on the way back from a tour to pick up things at a larger grocery store."

  • Breathtaking.

    "We spent a wonderful week at Casa de Serenidad. The whole place is amazing. To start with of the hosts, Babe and Don are friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our unit had the most amazing views perched like an aerie over the Pacific. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen well supplied. The AC sufficient. The unit had a nice private deck to hang out on or have dinner or have a massage. We remember one moonlit night with the surf glowing and lights across the bay twinkling, Breathtaking. The rest of the property was equally amazing. The architect had some fun. There is a cable bridge between the tops of two of the buildings. What a kick. And a spiral staircase to get down from one of the roofs. Another bit of fun was two hammocks suspended over a wading pool under a ramada on the roof of a building perched over the Pacific. These hammocks were a wonderful place to read. There is space for grilling out. There is an indoor cool Jacuzzi which turned out to be wonderfully refreshing on a hot day! We highly recommend Casa de Serenidad and we hope that we can return soon."
