Recent Flamingo Beach reviews

  • House was Great: Location/View...Neighbor with vicious, barking German Shepards was awful!

    "We had a large group and were very comfortable at Casa Miramar. The house is very large and there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the highlight of the house. It was nice to jump in the pool during the day and soak in the Jacuzzi at night. We walked to the beach and local restaurants on several occasions and the hike back up to the house was good exercise! We rented a 4-wheel drive SUV, highly recommended for any of the Costa Rican unpaved roads! We made good use of it and drove to lots of the nearby beaches. Donald was great and cleaned the pool and balcony area daily. Marta made the beds and swept, but did not empty the trash in any of the bathrooms or kitchen. We also had trouble getting the appropriate number of bath towels for our party and had to share the first few days. We started out with only one spoon and after mentioning this to the rental staff, Marta brought up a handful the next day. The house could use more glasses and coffee cups. Also, we were told toilet tissue and paper towels were included, but we never got paper towels and were limited to 2 rolls of TP per bathroom for our 10-day stay. I would suggest charging $100 more per week and let people have as much TP & PT as they need! The staff at Special Places was very helpful answering emails and arranging excursions prior to our arrival. However, they seemed a bit disorganized after our arrival asking all in our party to come into the office to sign credit card receipts for our excursions despite us submitting a credit card authorization form prior to our arrival. They never mentioned we would have to come into the office and do this and it was a bit irritating since we wanted to start our vacation! The neighbor next door with the dogs was awful. She encouraged the dogs to bark at anyone walking by and the dogs barked at all hours of the day and night disturbing our sleep. The car gate at the bottom of the driveway needed repairing one day and the neighbor left the dogs outside to bark at the repairmen for hours. If you could get rid of the neighbor and her dogs, the house is ideal!"

  • Fantastic views

    "We booked the home for a family vacation all adults. 6 in total. We found the set up was perfect as the rooms being separated gave us all our own space. We found we all gravitated to the beautiful infinity pool as well as the patio all the time. The view of the beach and the ocean was fantastic. The surf was great, beach is secluded and not crowded. The proximity to Coco Loco (local eatery) was advantagous as their menu was great. The staff Oli and the daily visits of Maritza helping out to keep the property clean and attend to our needs was welcome. Oli and Maritza are true professionals. We highly recommend this property. It can be perceived a little rustic but this is the charm of this home. We Would book again again."

  • Beautiful & Romantic

    "The condo: This condo is so beautiful and romantic! My boyfriend and i had the most incredible time staying there. The condo is on the second floor, just a stones throw away from a small semi-private beach. The balcony is nestled in the palm trees and feels super tropical and private with the ocean completing the stunning view. We definitely took full advantage of the wifi to post pictures of that gorgeous view to Instagram and Snapchat haha. There is a table and two super comfy lounge chairs to enjoy the view from. We had breakfast and coffee on our balcony several times and it was absolutely wonderful! The living room has a couple of really comfortable recliners and a smart TV. On a few nights when we were exhausted from our adventures, we happily relaxed in the recliners and watched Netflix on the Smart TV! The AC works perfectly and it was so nice to come home to a cool condo after a day of running around. The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous! It is mostly marble and much more modern than I ever expected. It came fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. and even had a blender to make pina coladas for my beach cup! There is also a traditional Costa Rican drip coffee maker and it made some of the best coffee I've ever had. The master bedroom is HUGE and was so comfortable! Since the little beach is so close, you can hear the waves crashing at night. I usually have trouble falling asleep, but the sound of the waves was so soothing... we have never slept better. We woke up so refreshed in the mornings too! There is plenty of storage space in the closet and they have a safe for your passports and valuables. We didn't use the other bedroom or bathroom, but they looked nice. I was (weirdly) excited about having a washing machine and a dryer because I didn't have to pack as much. I also tracked sand in the bed once and was glad I could wash the sheets. The area: Flamingof Beach is just a short walk down the hill. BEST. SUNSET. EVER. There is a little Plaza at the bottom of the hill with a few good restaurants. Marie's has a great breakfast and Angelina's has the best burger I've ever tasted. My absolute favorite place to eat, drink, and hang out was Las Catalinas. It's just a short drive through Potrero, but it is totally worth it. I think we went there about 6 times in a 9 day trip."

  • Perfect location for rest and relaxation

    "The condo is in a perfect location for rest and relaxation, yet close enough for active adventures. The condo is just as pictured. The view from the condo is outstanding. To see the blue sky and hear the surf from the front window is heaven on earth. The condo is nicely appointed with all the comforts of home. Beds are very comfortable. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and Rita from the property management company greeted us and led us to the condo to give us an overview of everything. She was most helpful and readily available for any questions we may have. The information provided by Kalli was wonderful. She did not miss a thing in terms of what is provided as well as recommendations for dining and recreation. We took advantage of having groceries delivered to the condo on the day of arrival so that we could have a restful evening and enjoy breakfast items in the morning. We took long walks on the endless beach and enjoyed cocktails and appetizers at the Beach House, which is walking distance from the condo. There is a fruit and vegetable stand just as you enter the property and the pineapples were sooo sweet and delicious. We had a private chef come to the condo on two separate occasions and it was worth every penny. We also had two massage therapist (Alejandra and Karen)come to the condo for heavenly one hour massages. We were so impressed that we had them come back again. Roxanne was the name of the concierge we worked with prior to our arrival and she is the one who set up the private chefs as well as the massage therapists. What a wonderful service. I do recommend renting a car since it is a distance from areas that have more action, such as Tamarindo. Tamarindo is about 25 minutes by car. Everything else is within walking distance; the Beach House, The Shack (best Tico breakfast in town), Playa Flamingo and its beach vendors. I would not hesitate to rent this condo again. Kudos to Kalli, Rita and Roxanne for a job well done! Pura Vida!!!!"
