Recent Flamingo Beach reviews
Flamingo Beach getaway!
"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."

Beautiful Home, Great Location, Amazing Views. We're ready to come back!
"It's my final morning here. We are about to pack up and leave, and I already miss the house. The house is beautifully located on a hillside above the beach. It's about 1/4 mile walk to the beach, but you can still hear every wave crashing and see the water from every front window. Ana Marie deserves a raise, as she was here every single day cleaning, doing our laundry, and making the place look and smell cleaner then before. Ernesto washed our rental car for us and was diligently working in the yard all day everyday. Raking, watering plants, sweeping, and keeping the property and pool in tip top shape! The huge front porch, and gazebo were great for eating out, bird watching, or just relaxing and listening to the ocean and monkeys down below. The Rouku was great when it wasn't trying to load. Mic had it set up for our local television. We were watching a tornado and storms hit an area close to home as we were sitting in CR enjoying our beautiful weather. The dogs were the best part about this house. There are 4 dogs living on the property, although we only got to meet Rusty once (he was tied up at Ernesto's house the entire time we were at the home except for one morning when he must have broke away), he was my favorite. We spoiled Kanga, Jack and Sky with dog treats we bought at the store, attention, a walk to the beach, and letting them sleep in the air conditioned bedrooms most of the time we were there. Every time we come to Costa Rica we like to stay in a different area, but those dogs make us want to come to Villa Bueno Vista next time we come back. I have a feeling they are going to miss how much we spoiled them. The house is in close proximity to very nice grocery stores, 2 banks, lots of restaurants (Sol Y Mar being the best and cheapest), and lots of beaches. There isn't really anything bad I can say about our 8 nights we stayed here."

"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."
