Flamingo Beach CR is beautiful, not overly touristy, peaceful, quiet and laid back. We are pleased to have stayed in a supposedly quiet rental right on the bay however, when we were there, they were doing noisy construction next door starting from way too early am. We would recommend Patricia's place to stay in and would stay there again if we ever returned as it was very roomy, comfortable, nicely set up and in a convenient location close to a store and restaurants and the ocean beach. Everything we needed was within close walking distance and Patricia was more then cordial.
We had a wonderful week at Patricia's condo. The location is amazing -- right on a small beach, very close to Playa Flamingo and other beaches. We visted all the nearby beaches, including Playa Tamarindo and Playa Danta several times, though my daughter said she liked "our" beach the best. We particularly enjoyed the porch area where we had breakfast every day. I would wake up at sunrise and have a few hours to myself, looking at the ocean and sipping coffee. A delightful vacation. The AC and internet worked very well, rooms were comfortable, and the resort had a lot of internal tourism at the time so we enjoyed going to the Monkey Shack and hearing the conversations in Spanish.
We were made to feel very welcome by Janina and Patty and had no problems with any communication.
Janina your manager met us and helped us get settled in. Her driving directions were excellent, no problem getting there. We were so glad we reserved 6 nights. Everything was very pleasant and met our expectations. We loved sitting at the table on the patio listening to the waves, watching boats go out in the morning. Wonderful private beach, I was able to see a few colorful fish by snorkeling over the rocky area on the end at low tide.
We really loved having our own kitchen to prepare the fresh food we enjoy. It was easy to find what we wanted at the market 5 minutes away by car.
Our favorite time was sunset at the larger beach a 10 minute walk from our door. Thank you for sharing your place with us.
l'appartement de Patricia est très bien placé. on peut dire les pieds dans l'eau et à ce prix c'est un cadeau!
This apartment on the beach was lovely. True to the photos it had an ocean view from the living room and patio which we enjoyed for our three day stay. There were a couple of minor issues that came up and they were resolved promptly. Overall a great place to stay for the price.
The good thing: the place is amazing, the pictures really stay short in describing how close the apartment is to the beach, which is secluded, next to the beach there's an area where to fish if you want. The apartment is completely furnished and impecable. No washing machine, but no hotel has. Air conditioned for the local hot weather. Has access to the hotel's facilities a few steps away. By car it's easy to reach the famous beaches around it.
The bad thing: I'm coming back, so I shouldn't have written such a review, may have problems finding room for me!
