"Many thanks for your place in Playa Flamingo. It was delightfull and very nicely appointed"
First of all, this place is located in a beautiful spot! Second of all, the condo was everything the listing promised it was and more! My husband and I stayed at this condo with another couple for 5 days. There is plenty of privacy, due to the fact that the two bedrooms are on separate sides on the condo and each with their own full bathroom. The place is absolutely beautiful. Clean, modern and has all of the amenities you could ask for. The view from the balcony is breath taking! Having full access to the resort is a huge plus. The resort and its staff were wonderful. The beach was perfect, especially for long walks. The walk to the resort and the beach from the condo is less than five minutes. There are several very nice restaurants within walking distance. Thank you for letting us stay at your beatiful place! We would love to come back!
This was a clean, spacious condo with an amazing location and a beautiful ocean view !
Before our journey to Costa Rica ,Maria provided all the details for us so we were prepared to come to Costa Rica with important phone numbers and tips and suggestions for our stay.
Walking distance to everything we needed, from grocery store, restaurants and a beautiful resort we had free access to right on the ocean! So you could stay by the pool or lay on the beach by the ocean!
With 5 adults, we had plenty of room and enjoyed the opportunity to cook our own meals, especially the delicious Maie Maie we caught deep sea fishing!
Or go to the few restaurants available within walking distance.
Brian was recommended to use for transportation and he was a real big help with the transportation, tour recommendations and Costa Rica advise!
Very knowledgeable man!
We will return soon, everything you need for your holiday in one location!
We could not have been more pleased with our stay--the location, the amenities and the view!
This condo is FANTASTIC - and exactly as (well, better than) described. It was refreshing to rent a property and find it as reflected in the online pictures and description. Our stay here was absolutely everything we expected. View was amazing, caretaker was excellent, accommodations were beautiful. Everything you need is already in the condo. The condo is a walking distance from restaurants, bar and beaches.
If you want a “pura vida” place to relax and enjoy beautiful beach ambiance, this is the place to be!
My family of four stayed in Maria's condo for a week in July and absolutely loved it! The condo was very clean, in fact the whole complex was very well kept. It was spacious and stocked with plenty of towels and kitchen supplies. Being able to use the resort was a huge plus and the beach was beautiful! Great waves for Boogie Boards which we rented right next to the resort.
We used Brian Gonzales for setting up an afternoon Catamaran tour and also for our transportation back to the airport. I would definitely recommend him for tours in this area.
I also would recommend Marie's for breakfast and dinner. She makes the best Espresso milk shakes! We also had delicious pizza at Angelina's. As far as food at the resort, we liked their lunches and drinks at the pool but were disappointed in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast.
We also used the resort for transportation to and from Playa Tamarindo. It's a great beach for surfing and the town is filled with shops, bars and restaurants. If you go there you have to eat at Patagonia Grill! I also recommend Iguana Surf for lessons and renting boards!
We had a wonderful stay at Maria's condo. We had a family of 4 and the condo provided all of the space we needed to relax and unwind from a full day of activities. The two rooms were separated by a family room area with a walk-out balcony that spans from one bedroom to the next...and the view, what can we say...magnificent! We watched the sunrise every morning and took in the breath-taking view. The beds were extremely comfortable and the condo was very clean and modern. It was a beautiful place!
The condo was within a 5 minute walk to the resort and beach. We enjoyed all of the amenities of the resort and we were able to take advantage of the pool, pool towels, swim-up bar, restaurant, and family center (where we played pool and relaxed after a long day). The walk from the condo to the resort and beach takes you past three fantastic restaurants (Maria's & Angelina's & The Monkey Bar directly across the street from the condo), a small grocery store (which met a majority of our needs), and gift shops. The Beach was beautiful...We recommend taking long walks down the beach and viewing the beautiful homes.
Maria provided a detailed information sheet with recommendations for tours, emergency phone numbers, and a brief lay of the land. ATM's are within a 15 to 20 minute walk just past Marina Bay (2 banks) but I would recommend renting a bike or having your tour operator (if you take advantage of the numerous tours) stop by the Bank. I found BCR Bank dispensed both Colones and USD$.
Maria recommended Brian Gonzales as a tour guide; however, Brian was out of the Country during our stay. His friend, Memo @ memoadventures set us up with numerous activities and I highly recommend him. Memo made our adventures very personal (avoided groups) and provided transportation to and from the airport...just a fantastic individual. I highly recommend the Buena Vista Tour to Ricon' (zip lining, water slide, horse-back riding, mud bath/spa, & Tarzan swing)..you won't be disappointed.
The condo was everything we wanted it to be from the overall space, views from the balcony, and amenities associated with Flamingo Resort. As this was our first trip to Costa Rica, the location could not have been better! Everyone was so kind and helpful! Although we did not get a chance to meet Amaya (condo contact), she was very responsive to answer any questions or provide help when we needed it.
I highly recommend this location and cannot wait to return!
The rooms were very spacious and had a perfect location for restaurants that the owner suggested like Angelina's (best mojitios ever) and Marie's. The patio was amazing and huge and was perfect for watching the sunrise and evening storms. The staff was very friendly and the pool on site was very relaxing as well. Thanks for a memorable time.
The Flamingo Beach is a top tourist destination and is located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. This town and its stretches of golden beaches have plenty to offer its visitors. Flamingo Beach is one of the most pristine and exclusive Beach Communities in Costa Rica. Gorgeous million dollar homes dot the hillside overlooking the incredible white sand beach. The beach is one of the few to win the coveted Blue Flag, an Award given only to the finest beaches in the World.The town of Flamingo offers fishing, jet skiing, kayaking, snorkeling and diving. There is an International Sport Fishing Tournament held here every year. Of course if none of the activities above are appealing enough, then one can always choose to laze around on the beach. Flamingo Beach is good all year round.
Other Activities: Sun bathing, Deep Sea Fishing, Small casinos, Canopy Tours, Internet cafe
Golf: If you love golf, then you will be thrilled, because Flamingo is surrounded by several championship world-class golf courses, such as Hacienda Pinilla, Paradisus Playa Conchal and Royal Pacific Coast.
