Why Angela and Curtis Owen chose Playa Flamingo

Why Flamingo Beach? We have visited numerous tropical locations, such as Mexico, Hawaii, Jamaica, Florida Keys, The Bahamas, and Dominican Republic. But, when we came to Costa Rica, we fell in love with the country and the people.

We also love the dry climate. When we come here for vacation, even in the green season, we hardly ever lose any days to rain.

What makes this condo unique

You are also within walking distance of a grocery store (less than 1 minute), several smaller beaches, a language school, a beauty salon, several other restaurants and bars, a pharmacy, souvenir shops, a pizza place and tour offices. On site at the condo, there is a lovely pool and gym. The views are spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The condo is well suited and fitted!

The hill is interesting and burns calories.

Playa Flamingo is our kind of place.

The property was clean and well managed.

  • 4 of 5

We had a beautiful view and were very comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with the necessary hardware to cook but there is nothing such as spices in the cupboards so be prepared to purchase all your ingredients. The apartment was clean but certain things needed attention such as the toilet seat in one of the bathrooms and the door handle on the sliding glass door. Overall we had a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying and for the comments. We try to keep the spices filled in the cabinets, but many guests choose to take them home with them when they stay. It is difficult to always have those available, but thank you for mentioning it. I will have our management company keep a little better eye on that. I have already created a request to repair the items you mentioned. It should be fixed very soon. I am sorry it wasn't done prior to your arrival. I know those things can be frustrating. Again, thank you for staying in our home. We hope you had a wonderful stay in Costa Rica.

Almost perfect!

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I spent 11 nights here in this wonderful condo, which had way more space than the two of us needed as it has an extra bedroom with 2 double beds along with the master which had a very comfortable king bed. We were more than happy with the unit though and we spent most of our time while around the condo out on the large deck relaxing and enjoying the warmth of Costa Rica after leaving the cold of Alberta, Canada behind. The owners have thought of everything right down to having a blender in the unit which came in handy for making Pina Coladas! Having a washer & dryer right in the condo was nice, along with two bathrooms! The only downside is that it is a little bit of a walk to the beach especially in the heat and up the hill, along with the construction being done on the road in front of the condo the entire time we were there and they started at 6:00 a.m. every morning and finished exactly 12 hours later like clockwork, even on the weekend! This is not the fault of the condo owners though and I am sure it will be done soon! All in all a wonderful place!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the condo. That is a bummer about the noise outside. Sorry about that. Costa Ricans are definitely early risers and work very hard. I hate that it was a bother. I understand how that can interrupt the feeling of serenity. But. I am glad you enjoyed yourself otherwise. Thank you for the review and for visiting our home.

Nice and Roomy

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and roomy! We had two teenagers and they had their own space and own bathroom, so that was a first for us. We spent most of our time out and about enjoying adventures of Costa Rica, but the beds were comfy and we have no complaints. Everything was clean and we left it as we found it. The balcony was a very generous size.

The area of the condo is quiet with little action around. The concierge was helpful via emails, but once there, we were on our own to figure things out, so that was a surprise. But we are resourceful and everything worked out fine when we found another local who helped us reserve the best adventures for our visit.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed our place. I feel bad that you felt alone when you got there. I will visit with our property management company about this. They usually help take care of anything you need, but may not have communicated that well to you. They have guests that want no contact and some that want more. They should have let you know they were there for whatever. Again, I am glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for booking with us!

Awesome! Peaceful and quite!!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I loved it. Very peaceful and the best thing, close to everything. Stores, beach, restaurants, everything is close by. If you look for a place to relax, this is it. And with a lot of places so close, you can enjoy the nightlife as well. Wonderful.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family (3 kids: 8, 5 and 3). There are several beaches to choose from all less than a 20 min drive away. Lots of variety ranging from white sand with hardly any waves to full on surfing beaches. Beyond that the kids loved playing in the two pools on the property. Great restaurants to choose from nearby, though we were able to do most of our meals in the condo's kitchen, which is always convenient with picky eaters. Everything was clean and in relatively good working order, and the owners as well as the local management company were responsive and helpful.

The balcony connecting the three rooms is what makes this location. It overlooks the bay and mountains beyond and is a great place to sit early in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee watching the sunrise, take an afternoon nap in one of the loungers, or hang out in the rocking chairs enjoying the evening. I would definitely want to have a car here-- there isn't much within walking distance. It is a sleepy beach town, it shuts down early, so if you want the late night fun stay somewhere else.

Hope to come again!


- Danta/Dantita - park at Las Catalinas which is secure and they will let you go through to Playa Danta which is a good boogie boarding beach. Walk across the rocks at low tide, or hike up and over the mountain to Playa Dantita for a much calmer beach. Nice restaurant and ice cream shop in Las Catalinas

- Conchal - go to Brasilito and then drive across the beach (or walk if you are worried about driving on the beach) and you will find a beautiful beach made up mostly of ground up shells - fairly calm water

- Flamingo - just down the street from the condo - bigger waves, for boogie boarding, and the best sunset around

- Tamarindo - if you want surfing lessons this is the place to go - a little too busy for our young family, but could see teenagers or older really enjoying it


- Coco Loco - down the road along Playa Flamingo - great place for dinner and watching the sunset

- Tubla - pizza from in town - delicious.

- A lo Nico - good burgers and fries and really friendly staff. Variety of foods

- Sol y Mar - great for a Costa Rican dish (casado)


- It is a bit of a drive but the big cat rescue center (Centro de Rescate las Pumas) near Canas and Waterfall/Catarata Llanos del Cortes in Bagaces made for a nice trip when we needed a break from the beach. - DON'T take Route 911, it is about 20 km down a bumpy dirt road
