A Great Value! Comfortable and Ideal Location

  • 4 of 5

Raphael and his wife were there to greet us when we arrived at the condo. They gave us a "tour" and were very welcoming and friendly. The condo is almost like the pictures - well, the layout and view are exactly as pictured, but the bedding is different and there was no coffee table in the living area. The condo was clean, comfortable and in a great location. We cooked in several nights and had all of the utensils, etc we needed. There is a small store at the bottom of the hill and it is 1/4 mile walk to the beach (Flamingo Beach is awesome for waves and sunsets - also try the Coco Loco restaurant on the beach, really good food). We did the Lazy Lizard snorkeling/sunset cruise and that was fantastic. While we didn't see much snorkeling, we loved the experience. The larger grocery stores (we recommend Auto Mercado and Mega Super) are on the way to Tamarindo and are about 30 mins away. The pool at the complex is awesome with a wonderful view of the beach.

A couple of things to note: the view is of the marina and not Flamingo Beach. It is a sunrise view. It is spectacular, but there is a small road that runs beside the condo, and this is relatively well traveled by trucks and cars (they are doing construction of the hill). It didn't bother us, but we did notice it.

Overall, a GREAT value!

Perfect condo for our tripf

  • 5 of 5

Rafael was a perfect host, he called us several times before we arrived to make sure our arrival was flawless. The condo had everything we needed and the views from the balcony were breath taking. We spent early mornings watching the sunrise and enjoying the peaceful views. While not everything is within "easy" walking distance everything was close by with some great restaurants and shops and we enjoyed the Monkey Bar across the street. It was perfect to have access to a grill and we took advantage of it to cook our tuna we caught deep sea fishing! I would recommend this condo to anyone looking to spend some time in Flamingo. Rafael was super easy to work with and very accomadating.

Our Costa Rica vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our trip was delayed two days because of weather and the owner, Raphael picked us up at the airport himself after having to cancel his driver so many times because of flight rescheduling. After showing us the area he helped us get settled in and showed us the unit. It is quite spacious with fantastic views from both the front and backside of the condo. The front looked out over Potrero Bay which offered just as spectacular views of a full moon rising over the bay, as Flamingo beach did offering the most amazing sunsets you will ever see. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need to prepare meals, which we did quite a bit of. It had spacious bathrooms and huge bedrooms with comfortable beds. We were quite satisfied with the unit itself. The only reason I don't give it a five star is the washer and dryers downstairs that everyone uses were dated and only one of the three washers would spin your clothes. ( No fault of the owner). Food is high at all restaurants as well as grocery stores, but the places we ate, the food was very good. The Shack in Potrero, Tikis in Brasilito, Loco Coco in Flamingo just to name a few, all very good food. It is a beautiful area with friendly local Ticos that are glad to help all they can. I would definitely go again and would not hesitate staying in this unit again. Go and enjoy.

Perfect location with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well maintained condo with comfortable beds in the perfect location. Can't wait for our next trip. Owners are wonderful people and had our beer on ice as we requested, when we arrived. I have and will continue recommending this to family and friends. Suggest Marie's for breakfast, then a massage on the beach, back to the condo for a dip in one of the cooled pools to start your perfect day. We enjoyed ourselves greatly and the condo and owners couldn't have been better. ENJOY!

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

We recently returned from a one-week stay at this unit. The hospitable owners were there to greet us on arrival (and departure) and show us around the space. The condo was an overall good place to base our family although we now wish we had rented a vehicle as there is not much use of taxis in Playa Flamingo and some seemingly close places are long walks in the heat of daytime.

However, the key thing we wanted to share in this review was a significant lapse in communication as the building ran out of water out first day and we received no details of what was going to solve the problem from the owners when we communicated the situation to them. If you travel here, you should be prepared for occasional water and power outages throughout the week. Perhaps this was the busiest week of the year and others will not experience it, but there was no backup water in the condo when we arrived/water went out. We had no water for 12 hours-and It was a holiday with many stores and restaurants closed. We left the condo with filled bottles of water for this purpose and hopefully the owners consider this for future guests as it was a very stressful way to start our trip.

Owner's Response: Guests wishing to rent a car in Flamingo can do so from Economy or National Car Rental just a short walk away from the condo (less than half a block). Informal taxis can be found across the street from Economy or National. Flamingo is a small beach resort and anyone can steer you to one of the car rental agencies or taxis if you are not the walking type. Guests are provided with the owner's cell phone number and email address. In the event of emergencies it is more effective to contact the owner by phone as an email may not be seen or read in a timely fashion. Guests not having a local cell phone need not worry as the condo has land line telephone service. The guest's complain of a water shortage on December 23 was the result of a public water system failure. The main pump serving the neighborhood failed and it took AYA (Aqueductos y Alcantarillados) several hours to replace. This was an isolated event and not a recurring problem.

Great place, great value & amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo with everything we needed for our family of 4 for our 2 week stay.

Being picked up at the airport by the owner was a great way to start our Costa Rican holiday as he provided us with lots of info about the country. He even stopped at the grocery store so we could load up on a few items. Terrific customer service! For our return to the airport, he arranged for a driver so it was easy travelling.

We loved the wrap around deck and watching the sunrise or enjoying the afternoon views in the shade! The kitchen was perfect for our family, we could make our meals and have 3 seated at the bar stools. Having the ice machine meant we could make lots of cool drinks or top-up our water bottles with ice

before heading out for the day! The master bedroom with King-sized bed was huge, with 2 accesses to the deck and with the walk-in closet, it was easy to keep everything tidy and organized. The second bedroom was perfect for our two teenage daughters. That second bathroom meant we could all get ready to go out to one of the many amazing restaurants within walking distance of the condo. Angelinas and Coco Loco were our favourites! The condo pools were never busy and always clean, although the lounge chairs by the pool do require some minor maintenance.

The added benefit to this condo was access to the Flamingo Beach Resort! Just a short walk down the hill, where we could get beach towels and lounge chairs at the pool with the swim-up bar or gain access to the beach. Coming off the beach, the showers at the resort meant we weren't tracking sand back up to our condo.

Perhaps the best part was the photo staff. They suggested a family photo session where we had lots of amazing photos taken and the price for the photos was a deal with no sitting fee! We are so thankful that we were given this option and their staff are very talented at unique family and individual poses.

For activities, we went horse-back riding at sunset at Basilito, great deal with a nice local young man. The zip lining at Castenguay was great value and a set of photos from them was a great bonus. We took a river trip where we saw a lot of wildlife and also spotted howler monkeys on the side of the road.

We highly recommend this condo and will definitely be returning to this condo and Flamingo Beach.

The condo is ideally located in the center of Flamingo within easy walking distance to the marina, language school, Flamingo Beach, and many of the finest restaurants in Flamingo. A small grocery store, car rental office and pizza place are at the corner. The famous Monkey Bar is accross the street at the Flamingo Marina Resort. The Flamingo Beach Resort is within one and one half block. The Conchal and Hacienda Pinillas golf courses are a mere 10 minutes away by auto. The town of Brasilito 5 km. away on the main road offers additional restaurants, grocery stores and souveniers.

Flamingo is serviced by two major banks, the Banco de Costa Rica and Banco Nacional where you can conduct all financial trasactions, and of course ATM's are available for your convenience.

In addition to Playa Flamingo the area boasts some of the best beaches on the Pacific coast. Beaches such as Conchal, Playa Grande, Playa Danta, Sugar Loaf and many others are close-by.

No trip to Flamingo is complete without a day or half-day of deep sea fishing. There is a sports fishing fleet anchored in the bay of over 30 vessels that will take you to the best spots for yellow fin tuna, mahi mahi, sailfish or marlin. A sunset sail can cap-off a perfect Flamngo day.

The Baulas National Park, a sanctuary for the leather-back sea turtle is 20 minutes away and merits a visit when the turtles are laying their eggs and the hatchlings are making their way to the water.
