  • WOW

    "It all began with a rainbow....what a perfect way to start a vacation. Keith the owner of unit 18 at The Palms was incredible to work with and very accomatating. His condo (18) was tastefully decorated as well as very quiet and clean. We had incredible sunsets and a great beach to walk on. Alexandria the was a blessing as well, from setting up our dinner reservations, to having a private chef come in on our last evening to prepare a wonderful meal for us. This is one place we would visit again. Thank you Keith for helping us with some incredible memories."

  • 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!!"

  • 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!"

  • 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."
