"We spent 9 glorious days in Costa Rica at El Destino...and what a destination it was! When we saw the condo from a distance as we were driving by our daughter said "Wow...look at that house!" Imagine her delight when I told her that was our home for the next week! We had 2 families totaling 9 houseguests and had more than enough room! Needless to say, the house was well prepared with directions to local attractions, eateries and shopping as well as fully stocked with anything you would need! We enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking in our front yard, swimming in our private pool, walking to restaurants and eating dinners on the porch as the sun set! I would highly recommend this Penthouse to anyone looking for a beautiful, tranquil, clean and safe place to stay while you explore Costa Rica!"

"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."

"We recently stayed at Playa Flamingo Villa 6 and it was as amazing as ever.
Easily the best beach in Costa Rica and no crowds. Hung out in the pool and drank the best booze and fruit drinks I have ever tasted. The staff is awesome and the room is modern and convenient. Most importantly it has everything you need pots, pans, silverware, etc. If you book a stay here you can do as much as you want ( zip line, water reft, etc. ) or as little as you like. It is a nice mix. Also you do not need a rental car.

"my 2 daughters and I spend 10 days in this beautiful condo, located right on the beach! We loved everything about it and Kally was most helpful from reservation to inside information about the area! We enjoyed this peaceful location with seemed like private beach. Many trips to nearby towns and the Rainforest. Rental car is highly recommended and 4x4 is really helpful! Thank you Kally for letting us enjoy your little paradise!"
