The first time we came to Flamingo beach we were swept away by the natural beauty of the beaches, islands, and mountains all within 1 square mile! We had never experienced such an appealing combination of natural beauty, spectacular weather, great food, and remarkably friendly local people.
For these reasons, we chose Flamingo Beach as our wedding destination. A beautiful ceremony at sunset, right on the beach.
We return to Flamingo Beach as often as we can to enjoy our most favorite place on earth.

Our first time to Costa Rica and this condo was located perfectly to restaurants, grocery stores and beaches. The owner gave must do list for first timers and was very helpful. A fabulous place and vacation. Kitchen well stocked with baking and cookware. Will recommend to friends.
We enjoyed a fabulous 5 nights at Sunset Heights. The condo was perfect for our family - lots of space and modern amenities. The deck was the perfect place to sit and enjoy the view. Conveniently located - close to some great restaurants, a small grocery store and, of course, the beach! We wouldn't hesitate to book this space again.
We had a great time in COSTA rica. Sunsets on the beach were as described. Restraunts and food selection were excellent. My wife would have liked to have a portable fan to help make the condo a little more comfortable.
This was our first trip to Costa Rica and first top on our trip. We stayed in Sunset Heights for 5 nights in January 2017. This condo met the needs of our family of 4 perfectly. Our daughters each had their own bed on one side of the unit, along with their own bathroom. The kitchen and living area in the middle is very spacious. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook at home, including little things like a coffee grinder to grind your own local coffee! The master bedroom and bath were very large and comfortable. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a nice benefit as well.
The location is very convenient to a few restaurants and the beach. It's only a 5 minute walk to Playa Flamingo, although we found it was easier to drive down the hill once we brought boogie boards, towels, etc. The best find was La Cuchura Verde, a small cafe located very close to the unit at the base of the hill next to the small market. Our family is vegan and La Cuchura Verde had plenty of healthy options that met our needs. The smoothies are amazing!
During our first night in the unit, the wind was very strong and woke us up several times. However, it died down the rest of the week and didn't create the howling sounds of the first night. Some longer term residents told us to crack the sliding door and open the small window in the bathroom to reduce the howling sounds and also keep the room cool. There are no bugs so no need to worry about them getting inside.
The balcony was incredible, overlooking Portero Bay. If you are up early enough, you can catch a great sunrise over the mountains across the bay. We ate several meals on the balcony as well, enjoying the views and flocks of parakeets that fly by.
A couple other notes that would have been handy to know:
- Recycling is available next to the guard station. There is a blue 55 gallon drum to the right of the guard room that you can put bottles, cans, and cardboard in to be recycled
- The second pool is a bit hidden but much warmer due to it being more exposed to the sun. Instead of going up the stairs, keep walking straight to the end of the building and the pool is on the left. It's across the street from the sign for the Monkey Bar
- Take the elevator to Level 1 and it will drop you at street level to save the walk around through the parking lot
All in all, we fully enjoyed our time here and would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great location in Playa Flamingo
We had a wonderful stay, great location! Lots of fun things to do at walkingdistance. We went surfing every day, which was about a 15min drive from the condo to playa Grande.
The condo has everything you need, it has a big fully equiped kitchen for homemade dinners. We made some big tuna tartars in this kitchen, but also one of the great things to have at Angelina's.(Local restaurant).
Oh and the sunsets are epic!
Our family of four had an amazing stay in Doug's condo. It's spacious, very clean and in a great area of Costa Rica. With a convenience store just steps away and a small grocery store a few miles away, it was easy to settle in and make ourselves at home. There are also several restaurants nearby, our favorites: Marie's for breakfast (try the espresso and coffee milkshake), Angelina's for dinner (amazing brick oven pizza and the best frozen mojito).
The pool was so nice to come back to after hanging at Flamingo beach for the day (10 min walk)...it was clean and never busy. There are two pools, but we only swam in the one with the amazing ocean view.
While Flamingo beach is amazing, there are many other beautiful beaches not to be missed very close by: Playa Danta (15 min north) is a black sand beach with SUP rentals and howler monkeys!! Also, Tamarindo is 30 min south with an amazing beach, 15 more min south is Playa Avellanas with best restaurant ever, Lola's! You can also meet the 400 lb pig, Lolita.
It's very safe and quiet around the condo. We loved the huge deck and spent most of our time out there. Cable TV and wifi worked great. Our kids loved having their own room and bathroom, too.
Amaya (manager) was really helpful and answered the few questions we had. Thanks Doug for a great stay!
