Recent Flamingo Beach reviews
"We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica!! The Palms at Playa Flamingo cannot be beat! Great location, steps from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The pool is great and we enjoyed ordering food and drinks from the pool bar. This unit, in particular is amazing. It felt like home to us from the moment we opened the front door. The furnishings are very nice and the condo is spacious. We are a family of 5 with teenagers and we were extremely comfortable. The view of the ocean from either the master bedroom terrace or the one off the living room was just amazing. This condo exceeded expectations. Barbara was a pleasure to work with and was helpful with any questions we had. When we come back, we will definitely want to book this condo again!! Thank you Barbara and Jay!!"

"Condo was as described. Had everything that was needed. Home away from home. The View from the balcony was the highlight but that's not to discount anything else about the place. Renee was very resourceful and if she couldn't personally help you, she would go out of her way to find someone who could."

"My husband and I plus our two teenage granddaughters spent the week of June 21, 2015 in this lovely unit. The first thing you see when you walk in is the view straight out the sliding glass doors. It overlooks the Flamingo Marina and beaches across the bay. The balcony is the width of the condo with table and chairs, 4 Costa Rica Rocking Chairs, BBQ grill and Kyak.
We could not get enough beautiful photos, especially at sunset! The two pools overlook Flamingo Beach . A full kitchen with all the amenities you need. The bedrooms are separated by the living room, one on each side. Each bedroom has it own bath which was very helpful with teenage girls. They had a bedroom with two queen beds that opened to the balcony and we had the master bedroom with a king bed that also opened to the balcony. There was a good supply of linens, beach towels, a small cooler, beach chairs, etc.
The top 4th floor offered beach ocean views. This condo also offered free membership to the Flamingo Resort which sits right on Flamingo Beach. You can walk to it in 5-10 minutes or drive in 2 minutes. They have a swim up pool bar, a small casino, a rec room, spa, exercise room, restaurant and steps to the ocean. Waiters were quick to wait on you and the pool bar was fun. The sand on Flamingo Beach is white and you can have a beach massage from the locals for $40.00 an hour. She actually took 1-1/2 hours with me. The rental price for this condo is a very good value. Probably the one hotel room at the Flamingo Beach is somewhere close to the price of the condo and you get so much more. TV's in all rooms, individual AC in each room, WiFi, Elevator, laundry room and exercise equipment on the bottom floor. The condos offer plenty of parking and security guard. It was very easy check in and check out. The owner's manager, Amaya, was super and very easy to reach with any questions or tours."

"This condo is first rate in all aspects. The furniture, the appliances, the AC, the beds…. Very, very comfortable.
The two King Suites each have an view and private, large balcony- the views and sunsets are amazing. The third bedroom looks out on the ‘other side’ of the bay and the view there is really nice itself.
Internet access was easy, reliable and fast. There are two flat panel TVs and, using the menu to switch to SAP mode made quite a few channels work in English (and impressed my 11 year old daughter immensely – one for dad!).
There is a guard to monitor the comings and goings. The condo is located on the top floor. There is an elevator and you can hear the ocean from both floors.
Now:…. The trek to and from the beach, while short in distance – maybe 2 blocks - is quite steep. Doable but you are going to feel it. It wasn’t a detriment for us and you can easily drive the very short distance if need be.
Around and About
The beach itself is very nice, not too crowded and certainly not overcrowded. A pleasant surprise.
The Condo is in a very nice neighborhood. Very comfortable and safe with a nice little shopping center nearby.
There are lots of fun little daytrip events right there. Surf lessons, snorkeling, zip lining, hiking, restaurants, shopping…... fun, easy.
Across the way is the Monkey Bar. If you go there and ‘buy a drink’ you can use their pool. They actually have three pools and the main one has a wet-bar, nice tanning lounge chairs and a super view of the ‘other side’ of the bay.
There is a restaurant called Coco Loco just down the beach… as short drive or a long walk. Great food, arrive an hour before sunset to get a table on the beach. That sunset you get won’t disappoint.
Special Places (Kenny/Phem) were great to work with. Clear and fast communication. Understandable paperwork. Good/relevant information about local events. Their office is about a block away from the Oceanica 807 so that was convenient as well. We arrived on Sunday night about 715pm… they were there and ready to go. Super easy.
We highly recommend this area of Costa Rica (not that we are big CR experts). We are so happy that we have already recommended this area and this unit to our friends and, I know it’s cliché’, but we are already planning a trip back for 2017 and will look to stay here again."
