I am a little reluctant to give the stellar review Playa de Flamingo deserves because I want to keep it all to myself, but I really can't be that selfish. Everything about this experience was top notch. Just steps away from warm, crystal clear pacific waters, the house itself is truly stunning and well appointed. If the ocean is not always your thing, cool off in the private pool and then warm up in the hot tub!
We traveled with four adults and four children, and there was plenty of room for all of us to sleep comfortably. The house was kept at a perfect temperature, and the on-site staff was amazing. The gate guard was always available to answer any of our questions, and the housekeeper ensured that we didn't have to be responsible for any of the upkeep. Even when we planned to do our own dishes or wash our own towels, she always beat us to it.
Kenny was fantastic. He hooked us up with a tour company that not only got us to and from the Liberia airport, but also helped us arrange the incomparable Palo Verde river cruise, zip lining and surf lessons at Tamarindo. In addition, he stocked our fridge and pantry before we arrived and introduced us to Adrian, who was our chef for the week. Adrian was incredible. We gave him basic ideas of what we liked and didn't like, and asked him to prepare fresh, local seafood and produce as much as possible. He went above and beyond! We ate like kings and queens all week.
With four young children, we expected someone to complain about something...that's what kids usually do, after all! But that was not the case. Every one of our party had a fabulous time. The only negative about the entire trip was that we had to leave!
