Recent Flamingo Beach reviews
"We stayed in March 2015. The location is fantastic and the sunsets are phenomenal. The House was great for our entire family. The pool is a excellent midday hideout from the heat of the afternoon. The house may be a bit dated for some tastes, but the location more than makes it a great get away. The view from the upper level deck is excellent all day long. The beach is so quiet and relaxing compared to resort areas.
Jorge is a outstanding host, he can arrange almost anything you may need or wish to do. He can make arrangements for dinner, fishing, kayaks,take you grocery shopping ,seafood delivers or sightseeing. He made our trip a fantastic get away. We hope to return in the future.
The Beach house restaurant and the Shack were great places to eat, and the Grill makes a great Mojito and Margarita. We went zip lining and followed that up with a short trip to Cocoa Beach for noon lunch for a half day get away."

"Villa Bougainvillea is absolutely immaculate, beautiful and has all of the amenities you are looking for in a "home away from home". Although there are other properties near Villa Bougainvillea, the landscaping makes it feel completely private and comfortable. The ocean waves are audible from the terrace or the living room if you leave the patio doors open. There are 2 private "en-suites" which make it great for large groups / families that want their own privacy. For travelers going during "dry" season, please note that at times your water will be turned off. This happens not just in Villa Bougainvillea, but throughout Guanacaste, especially the last month of dry season - which is when we traveled there. It is usually turned off in the early morning for about an hour. Not too inconvenient. If you travel any other time, you should not run into this problem. Location is great and "centralized" to get to many other places easily. "Special Places of Guanacaste" concierge services were outstanding and made excursion arrangements ahead of time and also last minute. They did a wonderful job, and our family did not miss out on any Costa Rican adventure. The locals around Villa Bougainvillea are so pleasant, and the nearby Restaurants were great and have some live free entertainment - fire throwing-belly dancing-flying yoga and more. Make sure you explore the volcanoes, go white water rafting, surfing, horse back riding and ATVing. ATVing is so much more fun in Costa Rica than anywhere in the U.S. Also, if you think that it is impossible to surf, guess again. Special Places hooked us up with a SUPERBOLOUS surf instructor, and my kids and I actually "rode the waves" for the first time ever. EXHILARATING!
Villa Bougainvillea is HUGE, beautifully decorated, has the most comfortable sleeping arrangements, incredible view, large and clean pool and a wonderful waterfall in entrance foyer that has great ambiance. Any family would enjoy there stay here!"

"Property was clean, spacious, and well equipped. It had an amazing view of the beach. Only a few minor repairs that were needed to some of the condo's fixtures. Overall, great property in walking distance to the beach."

"My family of 4 travels really well with 3 other families/amazing friends of ours. This was our 2nd annual Spring Break shared Vacation. There is no way I will be able to say enough about what an incredible time we all had at Casa Playa Bonita.
Where do I start? Lisa is so prompt and pleasant and made planning our trip a breeze. She and Yoko answered all of our questions immediately. Yoko will book your transportation and any day trips, she will make reservations for dinner, she is available to answer any questions at any time before and during your stay. When I called, she picked up. We were taken care of. Herman and Blanca were a dynamic duo for sure. Blanca is one stealth woman! She was like a ghost. We bought tons of fruit and she would cut it for us every morning and set it out without anyone seeing her. Any time we would try and wash a glass or dish she would stop us. She cleaned our rooms every day and I swear I rarely ever saw her! Herman and Blanca have perma-grins and they are wonderful human beings. Make sure you arrange at least one dinner cooked for you. They made us the BEST Tuna we've ever had. Even the non seafood eaters tried it and loved it!
Casa Playa Bonita is a perfectly designed home. 4 families, 14 people and there was plenty of privacy when needed. Best location, gorgeous sunsets, steps to the beach, a quick walk to Coco Loco's. It's like you have your own private resort. Coffee every morning looking out at the ocean, listening to birds and watching dragonflies buzz by was so incredibly relaxing. We rented sea-do's down the beach, kayaked and paddle AND boogie boarded right in front of the house. Fish would swim between our legs and the kids saw a sting ray. There were no vendors bugging you on the beach, it's super mellow and GORGEOUS. White sand and clear water. Yoko set us up with a 4 wheel/canopy tour and everyone had a great time. So much so that the kids decided to go on a 4 wheeling guided tour later in the week to ride again. We swam in the pool for hours and took advantage of the kiddie pool to float because we have no little ones. I want to be floating right now! Read the house book that Lisa will provide front to back. Everything you need is in there. We cooked in the amazing kitchen, went to Angelina's for dinner (tried octopus and LOVED) and there were daily walks to Coco Loco's for a coco loco served in a coconut. YES! I want to write more and I'm being cut off so....JUST GO. We can't wait to return. Pura Vida!!"
