“Heaven on earth”
What a wonderful place. My husband and I just came back from a really special week there. It was the first time we'd been away without kids since our honeymoon and I can't image a more romantic destination. Everything was perfect. The property, the staff and the incredible white sand beach location. We went to several other beaches while we were there, and Flamingo is the best. Beautiful white sand, uncrowded, consistently nice surf, very special. We came walking back from the surf without towels one afternoon; we hadn't even left the sand yet when one of the staff met us with a big smile and two towels, the staff is hands-down superb! They took care of everything and helped us plan day excursions and find secret spots - that really helped make for a special trip. And don't miss Roy's poolside drinks and goodies. Make sure to try his ceviche - best ever. The condo is really something else too. Everything is gorgeous and very well maintained. The glass walls, (doors) facing the surf fold away, making you feel as if you are sleeping outside on the beach with the sound of the waves and tropical birds. The entire wall facing the water literally goes away - amazing doors. Pure heaven! I wonder why I'm writing all this. Pura Vida. I have to share. Don't miss this treasure!
Our stay at The Palms was an absolute treat! The beautiful villa was very well appointed with everything we needed. Our 1st floor bedroom had an incredible view over the Pacific and the white sands of Playa Flamingo, one of the best beaches in the area. The friendly staff went out of their way to make our stay extra special. Highlights: witnessing a green turtle nesting on the beach in front of The Palms; sipping cocktails by the lovely pool; beautiful sunsets and boogie boarding!
“Sun + service + swim = sublime!”
One of the best getaway spots ever. The beauty of Playa Flamingo and the sumptuous facilities were only the start. The service from the concierge staff and their support staff was exemplary. Truly, the personal attention we received - no detail too small - turned this to a most memorable visit. The villa was well-appointed, comfortable and in our case easily accommodated two families. Food and beverages supplied by the concierge staff were top flight - prepared with care and mindful of our personal tastes. My wife and I recommend this villa unreservedly.
“First class accomodations”
The Palms in Playa Flamingo is a treat. Excellent accomodations with all the amenities of home. While there is not a restaurant on the property there is "Roy" who will cook for you, make restaurant and excursion reservations, arrange transportation or whatever you need. This is a private and quiet location good for all those who don't like huge resorts with lots of children.
My wife and I stayed at the Palms in November of 2011. We were lucky and just missed the "green" season so everything was beautiful both inside and outside the resort. There is nothing in the Guanacaste area that compares with the Palms. There are larger resorts (Westin and Four Seasons) that may be similar in quality and comfort but nothing with the white sand beachfront location and views. It was truely spectacular. We really liked the "boutique" feel of the Palms and the personalized service of Roy and Joanna. They took care of anything and everything we needed from the rental car to golf and dinner reservations. We also really ejoyed the poolside and palapa dinners that Roy prepared. The fresh snapper was to die for! The great thing about the Palms is that you can choose to simply relax by the beach or to explore the sights and adventures Costa Rica has to offer. It's all at your fingertips. We hope to return again soon.
“World Class Resort in Costa Rica on Flamingo Beach”
The Palms in Costa Rica on Flamingo Beach is by far the best place we have ever stayed in our world travels. We have stayed at other "Five Star Resorts and Hotels" but this by far was the best. The views of the ocean, beach, pools and landscaping were breathtaking. Everything stated on their website held true. We have been to other places where the pictures look great but then when you arrive at the property you wonder where they got their photos. The condo's interior was also first class. The finish carpentry, flooring, furniture and decor were all gorgeous with top of the line appliances. The staff at the Palms truly pampered us. Although there were nearby restaurants and a spacious kitchen in our condo we often ordered breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks at the resort. These were prepared by the staff and you could be served poolside or in your condo. We took advantage of several excursions all of which were arranged for by the on site staff. The beach was literally steps from our condo, as were the pools and lawn. My wife swam laps every morning in the edgeless pool and we both enjoyed swimming or kayaking in the ocean or walking the beach. We are hooked and look forward to our next stay!!
“Costa Rica Paradise”
Our family stayed at the luxurious Palms for a week in august. This 5-star condo is truly first class, with elegant furnishings and lots of granite and marble throughout. It has a spacious kitchen, with granite counters, state of the art appliances, and lots of room for cooking, eating and lounging. The welcome of the staff at the Palms was exceptional and they were always there to help and line up numerous daily excursions. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a Passion Fruit beverage and a welcome package of groceries to tide us over until we could visit the market nearby. The Palms provided free equipment for any activity such as kayaking, surfing and snorkeling. The grounds are equally fabulous with an infinity pool, just steps away from the fabulous white sandy beach, gym, and a barbeque area as well. Flamingo Beach is quiet, private with perfect waves and definitely one of the best beaches we visited in Costa Rica. Even though we visited in august (the rainy season) we encountered very little rainfall and almost perfect weather with amazing sunsets. We did an afternoon sail on a Catamaran which included snacks, beverages and snorkeling which was really fun. I also recommend an excursion to arenal Volcano. It's a 4-hour drive from the Palms in Playa Flamingo, but well worth the trip. Once there, we rappelled down several waterfalls (Pure Trek), did zip lining (Sky Tram) across the rain forest, and visited Tabacon Springs Resort to enjoy the thermal pools. However when we returned, we were convinced we had truly found paradise at The Palms and didn't really need to go anywhere else! We can't wait to return to The Palms, which reminds us of the way Mexico and Hawaii used to be. Pura vida!!!
Response from the owner Hi Jill, Thank you so much for the kind words regarding your stay with us. You have a great family and it is always nice to see one as active as yours! I don't believe you left many activities undone. On behalf of Roy, Joanna, and the rest of the staff.....we enjoyed having you sepnd time with us! Come back and see us again soon. If there is anything you ever need from us please let me know. All the best, Jim Jim Jackson The Palms | Private Residence Club 2654.5476 CR Office 800.867.5762 from US www.palmscostarica.com
Fantastic in every aspect. The condos are spectacular with every amenity you would desire. In less than 100 paces you are standing on the beach or in either pool. The area is so private and the staff is very accommodating. Restaurants and light shopping are an enjoyable walk away. You always feel safe, never uncomfortable, because the Costa Rican residents are so hospitable. This was so different than experiences we have had, where you felt you could not leave the complex where you were staying. The staff will arrange for your every need, with regard to taxi service and reservations to all the many sights and adventure experiences you desire. Truly one of our most relaxing and enjoyable vacations.
“Over the Top Five Star Resort on the Best Beach in Costa Rica”
My wife and I and young son just got back from a week at The Palms. We headed out each morning in a rented SUV on our daily adventure. Each day we returned with more and more confidence that The Palms' stretch of beach was the best part of the best beach in Costa Rica -- a perfect crescent made of white fine sand with gentle waves perfect for wading, body surfing and boogie boarding. The construction and finishings at The Palms are top notch by first world country standards. It compares favorably to even the Four Seasons and comes with a more relaxed, but just as attentive staff. Towards the end of the week our adventures got shorter and shorter as we chose to simply enjoy the property. The restaurants nearby are great, from traditional "Tico" (authentic Costa Rican) to fine dining, and the food at the Palms was resort quality without the resort price. This is my third time to Costa Rica. I stayed in "luxury homes" the first two. There's no comparison. If you go to Costa Rica, stay at The Palms.
“A relaxing stay in paradise.”
My wife and I have just returned from a luxurious stay in paradise at The Palms. How can you top 90 degree weather with a trade wind breeze to keep you comfortable? The attention to detail and great service at The Palms is exemplary. The welcoming attitude of the entire staff compliments the quality of construction and idealic setting on the white sands of Flamingo Beach. Onced we arrived at The Palms, we didn't want to go and anywhere else. We can't wait to return to The Palms, which reminds us of the way Mexico and Hawaii used to be.
