Everything and everyone was amazing!!! The condo was perfect- amazing view, walk to the beach, clean and comfortable. Randy in the office was so helpful booking activities and getting taxis. All of the staff were friendly, thanks for a great vacation.
Excellent winter getaway!!
The villa was very nice. Had everything we needed. It was in very good condition. The view was fantastic especially at sunset time. The pool was nice. The grounds were nice. It was a 5 minute walk to a very nice beach or to restaurants even though it was a bit of a walk back up the hill. An overhead fan on the balcony would be nice but the floor fan helped especially when the grill was being used. We would not hesitate staying there again.
We spent a month in this condo, having grandchildren stay with us periodically throughout our stay. The condo was clean, well equipped and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Because we had to pay for electricity, it was a great advantage that each room had its own AC unit so we could simply close off rooms that were not being used. The views are spectacular. We loved the shaded balcony for breakfast and morning coffee...hot sun hit about 2 pm. The unit has a portable fan to help cool things down.
Special Places was fantastic in responding quickly to our requests by email and by sending out supplies or maintenance. We could not have asked for anything better. They also will recommend and help arrange tours.
We had amazing food at Angelina's...who thought duck confit in Costa Rica? But their local fish dishes and pizza were also delicious. Recommend reserving a table by the outside to get the breeze. Hotel Flamingo on the beach served good food, good value. Maria's restaurant has great weekend live music, but food is average and wine list nil. There are few restaurants within walking distance but cabs are inexpensive and readily available in the tiny town. Smoking Pig restaurant has great ribs and jazz on certain nights.
Local grocery is expensive and sparse on fresh anything. Tamarindo is a $25 cab ride away ( each way) and has a great supermarket with fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, amazing fish, wines. We spent the morning looking through touristy shops, had lunch on the beach, then found a cab to take us to the grocery store and wait for us before returning to Flamingo Beach for $30... Though we generously tipped when we looked at the driver's time and distance travelled.
Our only negative is the steep walk from the condo to the beach, but that is our age issue. Just be prepared.
It was a memorable visit!!
Beautiful location and condo
The property is beautiful and located steps away from the gorgeous white sand beach. The walk to the beach is a short distance but it is very steep, good exercise! The condo itself is very well equipped in the kitchen, plenty of linens and comfortable beds. During our 3 week stay, there was a mechanical issue in the building but Special Places property management dealt with it very well, no problem. Nearby is a good basic grocery store and further away is AutoMercado for more American style products. Our favourite place to eat was Coco Loco's located right on the beach. Overall, it was a very relaxing vacation.
Other Activities: Tours: Canopy and zipline, deep sea fishing, volcanoes, casino, snorkeling, horseback riding, paddle boarding, surfing, sunset cruises and much more!
