This New Condominium is located on the South end of the exclusive Playa Flamingo. The Palms at Playa Flamingo is THE ONLY condominium complex ON the REAL Playa Flamingo.
This complex has undergone a three year long COMPLETE makeover, completed in 2009, that has made it arguably the most prestigious non-resort condominium complex in all of Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
from the living area and master bedroom. It is less than fifty steps to the white sand beach. Enjoy the sound of crashing surf and Howler Monkeys as you relax inside this upscale, brand new condo.
The Palms has twenty four hour guard gated privacy and two pools with a creek connecting them. The Palms has a fitness center with an assortment of Cardio and weight lifting equipment and has floor to ceiling windows that directly overlook the beach.

We live in Orange County California and have been going to Costa Rica for 20+ years. We finally purchased our own place in May of 2004. We love it down there and decided to share our property for others to enjoy.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2004
In 20+ years of traveling the beautiful country of Costa Rica, we decided on Playa Flamingo because of its white sand and exclusive ambiance.
Our property is on the south end of the exclusive Playa Flamingo. There is only one condo complex on the entire Playa Flamingo and ours is it. The south end of the beach has no commercial enterprise thus is quiet and uncrowded.
We spent a week at Playa Flamingo and stayed in #6 condo at the Palms. The condo was awesome in every respect: Clean, comfortable, well stocked, luxurious. The views were great and the location can't be beat (right on the beach). Owner was responsive and very helpful. He suggested a charter boat for offshore fishing, which turned out to be three amazing days on the water. We caught sailfish, roosterfish, tuna, mahi and to top it all off we caught a 250# and 1000# blue marlin. That's not a misprint, the "grander" was a record fish for the boat after 28 years chartering in Costa Rica. I will definitely be back and would not hesitate to stay here again. I also had my wife and two kids, age 8 and 14. They too loved the place.
If you are still searching for a place to stay in Costa Rica, you have found it!
My parents and I had the pleasure of staying here for a holiday vacation. I wanted to go to CR to attend the CPI school and my parents are contemplating retiring to CR.
We searched and searched and searched and finally found something, this gorgeous condo!! It was close to the school, steps away from the pool and beach and an overall nice place to be.
At first I was leery about booking a place sight unseen and did not want to be a victim of an internet scam. Totally the opposite. The condo was CLEAN and spacious. Everyone took great care of us.
The poolside service with the drink of the day and meals were awesome. We were unsure who we had to settle the tab with and was headed to the office that handled our booking. But you settle the tab with the office on the premises. Just letting anyone know so they would not be slightly offended as I was when we were leaving. Settle your tab at the office on the premises!! :-)
My only complaint. There is no TV in the 2nd bedroom and the WiFi is sporadic upstairs. These were no biggie, just letting others know so you may plan accordingly. My father stayed on the TV downstairs and my mother on the TV in their room. LOL LOL
Overall, I would recommend this place time and time again. It has EVERYTHING you need and more!!!!
Thank you for sharing such a great place!!!
My wife and I had a wonderful stay. The place is simply amazing. Perfect balance of luxury and comfort. Steps from the beach and pool. Opening the Nana wall gives terrific indoor / outdoor feel. Staff was very kind and we highly recommend having Roy prepare a private meal in your villa. Very reasonable in price and absolutely delicious.
I'll sum it up this way: I'm sitting on the terrace of the Four Seasons, our final stop in Guanacaste, and am missing The Palms #6. We will definitely go back!
We had an awesome 2 weeks. The description of the villa was right on. Roy, the concierge, was very helpful and a great chef. We spent many nights enjoying dinner on the patio listening to the crashing of the waves. Hopefully, we will be able to come back next year. The villa was well appointed and did not lack for any creature comforts.
We were 2 couples celebrating our 30th anniversaries and wanted something special. We certainly were not disappointed with our choice ! The entire staff went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and answer numerous questions. We cannot say enough about good things about Sarah, Mae, Mark and Alex and the entire grounds crew. Sharon at Special Places was also excellent to work with.This condo is steps from the beach and an amazing pool. This was the closest thing to paradise we had ever experienced.
We did 3 wonderful private tours with Diego from sibutours.com and balanced that with 5 full days at the condo.It was a perfect introduction to Costa Rica and we are already aniticipating a return trip.
The condo was well appointed and the kitchen fully stocked.Washer and dryer is always nice to have.Excellent internet and TV. We could not find a serving tray or 2, that would be nice to carry food to patio.One couple loved the hard mattress, the other not so much ( seems like hard mattresses are common in CR).Pillows lumpy,linens were pilled and the mattress pad torn in guest suite.It did not take away from our experience but should be noted for owner to remedy.
We ate locally in Brasilito and enjoyed every meal. We met Roy the day we arrived but he left for vacation the next day, much to our dismay. We heard (and saw) rave reviews. The grills were wonderful as we ate in one dinner.
The grounds,pool,private beach and access to body boards,kayak,and paddle boards(all top notch) made this a vacation to remember and will help us get through the cold and gray Michigan winter !
This is the 3rd time we've stayed at this resort. It just keeps getting better every trip. But first, the condo... Gorgeous and recently remodeled. Stone floors, granite countertops, free WORKING wifi (decent speeds), Wall mounted Flat-Screen, comfortable beds, NICE linens and pillows, AC units in each room. Not sure how we missed this last time, but the entire wall on the bottom floor folds open. We had 1 day that really rained. We just opened the entire wall and enjoyed it from the family room. By all means, reserve a dinner on the beach. They setup Tiki torches, linen covered tables and lighting just for our group of 6. Food was very good and not expensive for the experience. I think it was about 35-40 depending on what you ordered, but included appetizers and dessert as well. (tax and tip come to I believe 23% of the bill, so just know that up front. They told us ahead of time).
Also new this trip was an assortment of water sport equipment. 2 very high quality body boards, a foamish surfboard, kayak for 2, and 2 very high end paddle boards. The paddles are adjustable, which I hadn't seen before, but worked well. Important because paddle length is a big issue.
I think the gym was open last time we stayed here, but I had never gone. It's on the far end of the condos (2nd story) with floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides. The equipment is good. Standard treadmill, ellipse, and bikes. (2 of each as I recall). There are also a multi-purpose lifting, bench, pulldown machine, bowflex dial-a-weights and several other items. There's a Bose iPod dock speaker system in the gym as well (we had to prop up the iPhone a little to get it to work, you're milage may vary)
The staff was all very helpful. There are quite a few of them all around the resort. A lot of them are doing small maintenance tasks like cleaning up the beach, landscaping, working on the new pool, etc. But if you stop and ask them to help you they will.
We're already planning another trip next year. This time we'll be bringing the kids with us. If you have a party of 4-6 you really can't do better on the beach. We've also stayed at 'The Beachhouse Flamingo" which is great for a larger group but it's too much for only 2 couples.
Thanks again for another great week. We'll be back again!
