Recent Flamingo Beach reviews

  • Cindi B

    "The six of us ladies just got back from a week at the most beautiful beach. Our villa had a view that can never be outdone. We spent hours just sitting in the pool and on the large deck staring out at the Pacific Ocean. The location of the villa is second to none on that entire beach. And of course, thanks to house manager (Oli), we were able to do many truly memorable activities. Oli was able to set us up with great events and people, maximizing the entire Costa Rican experience. We all could not have been happier with the location, the view and the staff!!! Great time had by all."

  • 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!!"

  • 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!"

  • Prime location!

    "I couldn't have found a nicer place to live for 7 weeks! All of the amenities here to enjoy a wonderful and relaxing vacation. I enjoyed my daily walks to the beach and to places in and around Playa Flamingo. The CPI school is less than a mile away so I took some Spanish lessons while I was here. The condo has WiFi, cable TV, a well appointed kitchen and 2 great bedrooms with televions and private baths. The balcony offers a picnic type table as well as 4 Costa Rican rocking chairs that you'll love sitting in while you look over Portrero Bay. The front door has a gorgeous view of trees below as well as of the Pacific Ocean and its sunsets. In short, a grand place to stay while vacationing in Playa Flamingo, CR."
