What Past Guests Are Saying
The other reviews say it all. Everything was great. The accommodations, the view, the staff can't be beat. Roy is a real gem. He made all our dinner reservations, got us to the grocery and cooked us 5 wonderful meals. It was the perfect vacation. If you can swing it, The Palms, Villa 7 is the place to go. Working with the owner was very easy.
Paradise! Best Vacation, ever!
Our family of 5, two adults and 3 boys aged 16, 14, and 11 had a absolutely wonderful time at The Palms #7. The villa and grounds are even better than the pictures! The property is located at the quiet end of Playa Flamingo, and we had the amazing white sand beach almost to ourselves all week. The finishes in the condo are top notch, everything was sparkling clean! We loved the balcony off the master and enjoyed coffee there every morning as we gazed out onto the beautiful grounds and ocean. The pool was super clean and the gardens were wonderful. The ocean conditions were amazing during our stay. The waves were larger when we arrived, so we were able to use the complimentary boogie boards, which the boys loved. By the end of the week, the waves had died down, and we snorkeled at the south end of the beach and saw lots of fish and an eel. We also took out the complimentary kayaks, and enjoyed an amazing view of the beach from the bay.
One of the best things about this location is the amazing staff at The Palms. Maselle and Roy are available at the pool to order delicious food and drinks during the day. Every evening they make the most amazing cocktails at sunset, passion fruit or blackberry martinis, passion fruit mohitos, margaritas, to name a few. It was fun to gather with the few other guests that were staying at The Palms and talk about our adventures of the day. Roy can also help with reservations, booking excursions, and arranging local transportation to restaurants. The security staff and grounds crew are always around making sure the property is in tip top shape, and we felt very safe during our stay.
Elyne was great to deal with and our arrival to the property was a breeze. We will definitely be back, and want to thank Elyne and Joan for sharing this amazing slice of paradise with us. Pura Vida!
Amazing Stay at The Palms
We just returned from a fantastic stay at The Palms. The photos, while beautiful, do not do the rental justice - it's hard to imagine, but it's actually better. We have rented many homes over the past 10 years and this condo tops the list. My husband and I and our girls (ages 8 and 6) loved everything about our stay here - from the gorgeous views of the Pacific, the amazing infinity pool, Roy, the concierge, bartender and chef extraordinaire (I highly recommend the frozen mojito!!), beautiful Playa Flamingo - one of the prettiest beaches around, the gorgeous grounds, the hard-working and courteous maintenance staff, the fully-equipped kitchen, the comfortable beds, the flat screen tvs, the balcony and the porch - perfect spots to enjoy the amazing sunsets - everything was perfect. The service and the staff were top notch, from the fresh flowers throughout the unit when we arrived to the daily maid service - my girls loved the different creations the housekeeper made with their blankies and stuffed animals :). In addition, the location is central to every type of activity. Elyne was very professional and helpful - any questions I had were answered quickly. I would highly recommend this property to a friend. Thank you Elyne, for sharing your beautiful home with us - we hope someday to return.
Absolutely wonderful location and accomodations
This is a beautiful condominium in a picture perfect setting. The beach and pool are steps from your patio and the surroundings are breathtaking. Roy, the manager, is wonderful and very willing to make arrangements for excursions, dinner reservations, transportation and he cooks too! We give this vacation rental an a+!

My wife and I, along with another couple just returned from our first, and definitely not our last, visit to Costa Rica. We started with a week at The Palms and immediately entered into a world of serenity. What an amazing Condo and location! It is huge and with two large bedrooms (each with a spacious ensuite) that have king beds allowing each couple to have their own space. The condo is first class all the way with "top of the line” everything. It is very clean, spacious and maintained in all aspects. Easily a 5 Star rating.
The outside is just as spectacular as all the property is trimmed and cleaned daily so it is like a huge garden. The main deck is probably the best deck in the complex as it is close to everything including the pool and the bar. A perfect deck for coffee in the am and for little cocktail parties at sunset (and the sunsets are perfect every evening).
The pictures and descriptions on the web site are great but it is actually better than the photos. It is very centrally located to restaurants and if you like to walk it is amazing. We walked the beach to Brasilito & Conchal and also walked from the condo to endless beach and beyond to Lola's. Long walk (about 15 km return) but incredible views and the cervasa never tasted better!
We used the boogie boards, the gym, snorkeling equipment and the kayaks that you can use for free. We never had to wait to use them and the waves were perfect.
All the staff at the Palms are very helpful and happy people. The Palms manager, Jorge and Roy went out of their way to help us.
I have done a number of Vrbo rentals before and Elyne was very helpful and professional to deal with. There is no need to look at any other accommodation; this one is perfect in every way for everyone!

Wonderful place to stay
Condo #7 is pure luxury. Extremely well kept, clean, with everything one needed. The bedrooms are very spacious and especially liked the fact each has an ensuite. Location is amazing, inches from a gorgeous pool & meters from the beach & ocean. Complex employees were the most courteous, helpful and friendly people around. Staying here is like living the dream.
Overall a wonderful experience!
This was our second visit in two years to The Palms #7. This property is really lovely - wonderful location on one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The condo itself is just like the photos - beautifully maintained & decorated with all the amenities one could ask for. The owners attention to detail is evident in the furnishings, up-to-date appliances, cooking utensils & large flat screen TVs in every room. The Palms property is top-notch with a gorgeous infinity pool, beautifully maintained landscape & a staff that goes out of their way to ensure your stay in relaxing, enjoyable & fun. Since our stay last year, The Palms now offers a light lunch & early dinner menu which is excellent. Roy, the bartender/chef/concierge is a delight. He makes a fantastic cocktail (Passionfruit Martini!), can be your personal chef & knows all the best places to dine, sail, golf, horseback riding, - any activity/adventure you're interested in, Roy can make the arrangements. One important thing to know about Costa Rica is that plumbing can be very sensitive - the previous occupants had an issue with the Masterbath toilet & the issue was still not resolved completely by the time we arrived.
Late life traveller
Out of this world experience
I've been before to Unit 7 at the Palms in Playa Flamingo. It is hard to believe but the second time 'round was even better than the first. Last time loved the water, the pool, the place and the day trips. This time, all of that and now I could order in fresh food when the whim occurred to me. The Palms now has a great chef and meals are delivered right to the door. This year, I saw giant leatherback turtles laying eggs (69 of them) at night. Once again, I also visited the Spa. So whether I was busy on day trips or just relaxing in the pool, this condo is ideal-I love luxury.
All the amenities of a 5-star resort coupled with the privacy and spaciousness of our own vacation home on the beach. The condo itself is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation, including boogie boards, deck chairs, televisions upstairs and down, and dvd players. Both bedrooms are large and have tons of space to unpack and spread out. There is an in suite bathroom in each bedroom and another bath downstairs. The kitchen is wonderful and every pot, pan and utensil you can think of is provided. The condo is literally steps from the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica. The views of the ocean and the spectacular sunsets from the deck and upstairs balcony were breathtaking. Although the condo is privately owned, the rental includes the services of The Palms complex. This is where the resort experience kicks in. Roy is the concierge, but this title hardly does him justice. He is a master chef and will cook and deliver dinner either to the outdoor eating area or to the condo. We had grilled lobster one night and pizzas and salad another. Both were delicious! He also arranged for two day trips and made a number of restaurant recommendations. Most incredibly, when our 19 and 21-year-old sons expressed an interest in the night life of Costa Rica and told him that they like to dance, he took them to Tamarindo to learn salsa dancing! Daily maid service, beach towels, kayaks, beach chairs and umbrellas are also included. In all, we had a perfect nine days. I cannot recommend this rental highly enough. We cannot wait to return!
Superb condo, this is 5* living!
We stayed at #7 The Palms in april, with our 2 boys (ages 15 and 13) and had a brilliant time. The condo is absolutely superb - the condition of the property is immaculate, the kitchen has every convenience (we made great use of the many different types of cocktail glasses thoughtfully provided by the owner!) and everything was exactly as described.
The Palms complex is only small (24 condos) and provided everything you need for a great beach holiday - kayaks, boogie boards, surfboards, snorkelling equipment... We didn't get around to using the supplied Bbqs, like we'd intended. There's plenty of sunbeds and sunshades, both around the lovely pool and under the shade of palm trees. The grounds are beautifully kept, and the small bar by the main pool whisks up mean drinks and super food at very reasonable prices. The fruit smoothies and daiquiries kept our spirits up on long, hot days... this is living!
Best of all is the location - one of very few properties with a genuine beach-front location. You can walk from the terrace of #7 straight out across the lawn and onto the sand, no crossing roads, nothing between you and the lovely white sand and pacific waves. It's like a private beach.
Quite simply this is millionaire living, especially as The Palms is so quiet. The staff set out to provide 5-star service and I believe they do - everyone is really helpful and friendly. Roy in particular was great, he suggested we travellled to a local town's fiesta which turned out to be one of the most memorable moments of a hectic Costa Rican holiday.
Think Four Seasons and you won't be wrong. It is worth every penny (or cent, I guess!) If you want Pacific Coast beach and luxury this is definitely the place.
Wonderful Condo, beautiful location
We were thrilled when we walked into this condo! The view of the ocean through the living area was spectacular, the first thing we did was walk onto the patio to take in the view. There were very few people staying at The Palms which made our stay even more relaxing. The condo had everything we needed, we did not cook much as we loved Mar Y Sol restaurant and ate there 3 of the four nights of our stay. We highly recommend this rental.
Wonderful time at the Palm Flamingo Beach.
As soon as we opened the door to the condo,it looked that we were in paradise,The condo,described in pictures and description certainly was better in every aspect than we had imagined. The quality of construction and furniture was first class. We did a lot of cooking in the large kitchen,which was equipped with everything you possible would need,to create a good . We certainly recommend this wonderful place to anyone for a great holiday
A Fantastic Family Vacation
How does this sound for a relaxing days itinerary? Breakfast, beach, pool, ,lunch, nap, beach, pool, dinner, bed. Well, multiply that by 22 days and you will have an idea of how relaxing our time in Flamingo was. We took full advantage of the beautiful surroundings here and we enjoyed every minute of it. Elyne & Joan, we understand why you spend so much time here. There are no worries and each day flows effortlessly into the next. Emma and Joe started calling it "home" after just a few days so we can safely say they enjoyed it too. Thank you both for allowing us to share this wonderful home you have here. Summer, Jeff, Emma & Joe Redlands, California

Summer, Thanks for sending your family comments. Yes, we too find it very relaxing here at the beach. Luckily, we get pretty lengthy stays and really enjoy the Costa Rican "Pura Vida" lifestyle. Elyne & Joan

Beyond my imagination
The beach here is so quiet. Arising early I walk it on my own (30 steps from beachfront door), enjoying the sun and breezes. I meet no-one, the quiet and serenity are just what I had hoped. The homes here at The Palms are wonderful. The endless lap pool exquisite. If peacefulness, serenity and superb accommodations are what you seek...you'll find it at The Palms #7. During my 2 week stay I did manage a visit to Tabacon Hot Springs and another to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, enjoyed massages and saw the illusive Quetsel and amazing flora. Really, a trip of a life-time. I hope to be so lucky to return to this beautiful country and Guanacaste someday.

Lynne - We are very pleased to hear of your wonderful holiday experience. Thanks for your comments. Joan & Elyne
