Recent Flamingo Beach reviews
Location, view, pool, beds all the best!
"We stayed here for 5 nights in August and had a great time with our three kids - ages 13, 10 and 8. The house has a very good location - easy walk down to a small tienda, a few restaurants and Flamingo Beach. You do want a car to reach other beaches and places to visit in the area. Although the driveway is a bit of a pain to navigate.
The private beach is very nice at low tide - but not ideal for swimming (rocks) and lots of debris from the ocean while we were there. Perfect to dab the feet, maybe a cool off, looking for rocks/shells. Pool is awesome in all ways and is in the shade in the afternoon - so perfect on hot afternoons.
Kitchen is fully equipped - only complaint is the small coffee pot!! Ha! - but very clean and easy to use. Like many places in Costa Rica (and everywhere in the summer) - lots of bugs inside and out. Food can't be left out on counters, or new friends move in quickly.
Bedrooms upstairs and down had AC which was good to have at night. Common area did not have AC, but ceiling fans, cross breeze keeps the area somewhat comfortable in the hottest part of the day. If you have younger children, you may end up with them upstairs as it "feels" a bit of a ways to the lower rooms.
Towels, sheets are all good and the beds were very comfortable. Hot water, nice bathrooms, etc.
The maid who was in and out when were there was wonderful and helpful."

"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!!"

"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."
