Recent Flamingo Beach reviews
Great condo right on the beach!
"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!"

"Our family of four had a great stay at this property. Loved the proximity to beautiful Playa Flamingo, and ability to walk to restaurants and bars. Spectacular view of the beach from two patios, and easy access to pool and rancho (bbq area) - great for younger kids. Note that Flamingo is a hilly place - so beach is down a set of steep steps. We always walked it, but if anyone has difficulty, can easily drive them down in one minute (seriously) and there seemed to be plenty of parking. Felt secure with gated access and friendly guards. Short drive to other great beaches (Conchal, Penca, more), as well as farm stands, fish vendors, and markets. Really well stocked kitchen made cooking easy, and owner provided plenty of bath towels, beach towels, and even beach toys. Although couch and bed spreads make it a little dated, would definitely recommend this to others."

"We based our visit to Costa Rica from this terrific condo that was about 100 steps from the amazing white sand beaches of Playa Flamingo. The pool is right in front of the condo's doors. There were good restaurants within walking distance but the grocery store was about 8km away - a bit too far to walk in the mid day heat! Rental cars and taxis are available nearby. Many local places between 2 and 10 km away in Potrero, Prieta, Brasilito...We will probably go back."

"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."
