Great place to stay!
The Palms is a beautiful piece of property. It’s wonderful being able to walk right out to the ocean or pool as well as waking up to the views and sounds of the ocean. There are comfortable lounge chairs with umbrellas right at the edge of the sand to look out and see whales, fish, and birds or just enjoy the amazing sunsets. The staff were friendly and helpful and having the bar right at the pool is fun to order some tropical drinks which were just on a tab and paid for at the end of the week. We rented jet skis which were delivered right in front of the palms. The store is pretty close by to pick up some groceries for the villa. We arranged a chef to come to the villa (Juan from Let Me Cook For You) and prepare dinner for the four of us which was the best meal we had the entire week! It was $55 per person and worth every dollar! We enjoyed eating at Coco Loco which is in walking distance. We did rent a car for the week from Adobe which included WiFi which proved to be very helpful using Waze for directions. The roads are rough so we appreciated having all wheel drive. Being October, we were pretty lucky in having sunshine most of the days and enjoyed the lightening and thunderstorms almost every evening.
The men in our group had a great fishing experience with William Moran of Cacique sport fishing and caught huge Dorado and needlefish. It was $280 for half day.
We also enjoyed massages in our living room for $40 an hour.
Would totally come back to the Palms!
Side note to the owner: I would suggest adding some oven mitts to the kitchen as well as fixing the refrigerator door shelves (which are all broken) for those of us that need to fit a lot in the fridge:)
What a beautiful place to stay! So nice to have a pool and beach right outside your back door. Pictures online are true and accurate. Very nicely kept and cared for. All onsite staff members extremely helpful and friendly. Concierge happily assisted with excursions as well. We'll look forward to a return visit some day!
Fabulous End To Our Costa Rica Vacation
I typically don’t write reviews but this last stop for our family vacation in Playa Flamingo was fabulous! The serenity, views, and condo luxury were perfect! The owner of Unit 18 really stepped up the condo furnishing like high end/extensive kitchen appliances (example Vitamix blender), extremely comfortable furnishings, large TV and best of all bikes to ride into town! The infinity pool with the white sandy beach view was luxury at its finest. The owner is very responsive and you get house cleaning every other day which in my experience is unusual for VRBOs (although I’d rather pay less than have this cleaning so often 😊). The only downside was that we stayed only 4 nights but we made the most of our stay with Scuba/ Snorkeling tour, bike riding, beach massage, one day Tamarindo shopping and surf lessons, eating at great restaurants, working out in their exercise room with beach and iguana views, supermarket shopping and enjoying the beach/pool with a yummy bar drink or blending one ourselves. Pura Vida until our next Costa Rican visit!
The Palms #18 Flamingo Beach
We really had a great and relaxing time staying in this beautiful villa at Flamingo Beach. We were there in early August 2019. The Villa was well equipped with everything that you need and the staff at the Palms was very attentive and helpful. This gated and relatively small resort is right on the beach. It was great to open up the patio doors in the morning and listen to the waves. The grounds and the two swimming pools are meticulously maintained and are a great place to just chill without a lot of people and loud music. There was a small bar and staff at the pool to bring you lunch or your favorite beverage. If you’re looking for a resort with a lot of people and a loud pool party then this is not the place for you, but if you’re looking for a beautiful villa on a beautiful beach and a great place to relax then I would highly recommend The Palms #18 at Flamingo Beach.
Great overall experience! 2 adults and 4 kids stayed for 5 nights. Location is great, the property is fantastic and the people working there make you feel at home. Loved it!
Couldn't Be Happier
This property was exactly as described. It was definitely one of the best places I have stayed at. The view from this unit was unbelievable! That staff on the property....great!! I could go on and on. I will definitely be staying in Keith's unit next time I travel to Costa Rica. Thanks for making this a vacation to remember, Keith!!
