Recent Flamingo Beach reviews

  • Great location, beautiful beach

    "Working with Sid was easy. he was very respectful of our privacy, but would respond any time we had a question. He has an absolutely beautiful villa at a reasonable price. We stayed in the larger villa on the middle floor. It was spotless when we arrived. We cooked in-home several times, and were not lacking for kitchen supplies for beans, rice, breakfasts, tacos, etc. Everything was there, and in good working order. He even had a colander. He gave us alternate directions to get to the Villa from SJO in order to avoid construction. He referred us to a pretty good tour operator who offered nice excursions for reasonable prices. His maid, Maritsa, was sweet and a great cook. She made us comida tipica one evening and it was REALLY really good. You should ask for her to cook for you. She was super timely with laundry - which meant we didn't have to pack as much! The villa itself is nestled in a hillside with a great view in the morning of the mountains. The pool below is a play-pool, which means that the water was quite warm in our week of travel. Still, after being beaten up by the ocean, it was very nice to just float and relax in the pool. The tropical landscaping around the property is very pretty. We saw a few interesting birds, and very pretty flowers. On our last morning, the howler monkeys gave us a show in the trees just outside the perimeter of the property. The walk to the beach is down a somewhat steep walk. You'll want to wear shoes. After being tossed around the ocean, the walk back up the hill can be a bit tiresome. It would be difficult for someone who lives a sedentary life, but just stop to breathe and you'll make it. Bring bug spray. Bring sunscreen. Bring shampoo. Sid provides shower soap, but it's what's available locally. The pix don't show bathrooms, but they were all very nice. Nice bath towels and linens. Beach towels were thin, but hey, dry off on the beach in the sun! The A/C worked just fine. In the hot week we were there, we opted to use it. Sid has you put down a cash deposit for damage. Just use the coasters to protect the finishes, and treat the place respectfully. He provides all the basic necessities and many nice amenites. Enjoy!!"

  • Great Spot!

    "My wife and I enjoyed a week at the House of Summer Sand. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we were concerned with things like safety, traveling around, water, etc. Kalli provided us detailed information from the beginning and everything was just as we were told it would be...clean, safe, easy, and great fun. The sunsets are amazing and we enjoyed every minute of our stay."

  • Wonderful place!

    "We stayed in Playa Flamingo for 7 days with 17 family members and wrapped up our trip at El Destino for the last 3 days with only 7 of us. We had 4 adults, 2 toddlers and an infant and this condo was perfect. It was huge and very child friendly. The owners have stocked it with everything you'll ever need and the staff are friendly and very helpful. It is within walking distance of several great restaurants and a grocery store. Chris was extremely helpful and provided us with a recommendation list that was spot on. I can't say enough positive things about this place! We will be back!"

  • Amazing escape, where time stands still.

    "Villa Bougainvillea is beautiful, within a short walk to restaurants and the beach and always bright and full of sunlight. The house is fully equipped and the Special Places offices are nearby with friendly staff willing to assist with directions and recommendations. We spent a wonderful week in Playa Flamingo and wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend both Special Places and Villa Bougainvillea."
