We stayed at this location for 13 nights starting May 15. It is about .25 miles from the beach. There are a total of 8 apartments in two buildings with a central pool and a couple of beautiful parrots in a large cage. The site is well maintained, secure, and a great place to get away from the crowds. There... More

The apartments are nicely furnished and reasonably priced. The photos they they show of their exterior are accurate- their pool area is great! Check out the talking birds poolside- sorry I do not know what the birds are called.

We spent two weeks in March at this beautiful place. From the first moment Miguel welcomed us like an old dear friend that he hadn't seen in a long time. There was nothing he wouldn't do, so that this vacation would be unforgettable and stress free. The apartment itself was a little paradise. There is a pool, lively parrots and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights during our Costa Rica trip. The owner of the hotel might be one of the most friendliest person I met in my entire life! He helped us with everything, drove us almost wherever we wanted to go! Lovely times !

Beautiful & quaint little property, with a cute courtyard, nice pool, colorful mosaic wall and accent lighting, comfy couches, and friendly blue macaws. Our family (with two young kids) was comfortable in the two-bedroom apartment. The kitchen had what we needed to prepare meals. The rooms were nicely appointed. In fact, we liked one bit of decor enough that we... More

The place was lovely, staff very helpful. The pool, garden and Macaws are really made a lovely setting. There is a supermarket next door which is great as you get your own kitchen. you are a few blocks from the beach but the walk is on a road with no sidewalk so you may want to drive there anyway.

The apartments were very nice and the kitchen fully equipped. Everything worked and the managing (and I believe owning) family very attentive and genuinely friendly and helpful (although I would not recommend contacting them by email as some other reviewer attempted as they live right next to the property). Pool was smallish but nice and clean. The only drawback is... More

My boyfriend and I lived in Playa Flamingo from Feb - June 2015 and LOVED our say here. This place is a lush oasis, private and secluded with beautiful apartments, each unique and lovely. The owner, Miguel, and caretaker, David, are stars! They made us feel like part of the family, always helping us out and taking an interest in... More

I booked this apartment with mixed feelings - I needed cheap accommodation for a few nights to keep down the cost of my holiday, but some of the reviews I had read were not so positive, so I went there hoping for the best! These apartments are slightly hidden away from the main road, so our taxi driver struggled a... More
