Few vacation destinations offer the stunning natural beauty of Costa Rica, where vast stretches of white-sand beach give way to lush tropical forest and misty mountain peaks, and where whale watching, marlin fishing, zip-lining, snorkeling, orchid hunting and sunbathing are tempting diversions. Now you can own a piece of this paradise. Ideally located steps from the ocean on Playa Flamingo, The Palms is a beautiful privately-owned luxury villa community that combines the benefits of home ownership with the amenities, pampering service and conveniences of a resort hotel.

When watching the Costa Rican sunset, with a cocktail in hand, in the Infiniti edge pool, that seems to be the question that you first asked another guest you saw. It’s a gem of a property and feels like a slice of heaven—like it’s a secret that you kinda don’t want anyone to know about.. It’s quiet, secluded and exclusive. Only 32 privately owned units, some of which are available through rental program. We have been twice with our family and hope to return again soon. Covid: no test to get in, only test to get out. We had our test on thurs for our mon departure. The concierge there arranged it all. Doc to the door, printing out results, etc. The concierge is there to also book dinners, excursions (private sunset abs snorkel tour is the best), dinner on beach, etc. They also have an on premises outdoor massages for $50 an hour—best massage ever.

We rented Villa 18 for a week in early June. This place is incredible! Our unit had everything we needed and tons of space for a family of four. We even overpacked with the ability to do laundry. On site management and staff go out of their way to make your stay perfect. Food and beverage at the pool was great, especially the ceviche! Very secure and they actually keep an eye out for you. Beach location is perfect! Those sunsets! Sandy beaches, mild waves, and a bit of snorkeling just to the left. Walkable to restaurants in the town. We will definitely return! Don't go to the Westin/W down the way. This is the place you're looking for.

The Palms was an incredible vacation residence !!! Each villa is 2 floors with a deck that goes right to the pool. The food at the pool was really tasty and twice a week the bakery truck stops with breads/donuts/pastries/cakes. So yummy

Costa Rica=Playa Flamingo=The Palms=Casa Chocolate #22. You need not look further for the perfect vacation. This was our first trip to Costa Rica. We chose The Palms because of the stellar reviews of the staff and the accommodations. We picked Unit 22, Casa Chocolate, because of the high end electronics, location of the condo, and eye appealing decor. We had just come from The Springs Resort and thinking this part of the vacation would be a let down. Boy, were we wrong. Kristen met us as we drove through the guard gate to take us to our condo and Ariel, the bartender, brought us a welcome drink from the outside bar. Casa Chocolate was everything the VRBO review stated and more. The kitchen cupboards were well stocked with the basics, which was a plus. You can prepare meals from the gourmet kitchen, or order off the menus provided for simple and tasty meals, which are made in a kitchen on property and delivered to your condo, or wherever you plant yourself on the property. If you give them a credit card at the Office you can charge everything and settle up on departure. If you are going to prepare your own meals don’t wait until you get to Playa Flamingo to buy groceries. Although the local grocery store is very nice, and includes liquor and beer, it isn’t very large and your selection will be limited. You can also purchase fresh fish from a vendor that comes every Tuesday and Friday, and delicious German baked goods from another vendor on Tuesdays. The Palms also offers a delicious meal prepared by the excellent on site Chef, Louis, every Friday evening ($75 per person), which includes an open bar and a band. Call the Palms office to confirm these amenities, as different seasons may have different offers and prices. There isn't a restaurant on property, but after watching the beautiful sunset at The Palms, Coco Loco’s is only a quick walk on the beach with excellent food and friendly servers. On the way back you have the brilliant stars and moon to light the way back. A shout out to the awesome office staff; Karina, Alejandro, Sarah, Johnathan and Denice. They will set up tee times for golf, horseback riding, sunset snorkeling/sunset cruises, ATV tours, zip lining, and very reasonable transportation to all these activities......before or after you arrive. We can’t close without mentioning Carlos, the owner of Casa Chocolate. His response to all inquiries were answered within hours, if not less. He has managed to offer a high end condo with all the bells and whistles with a comfortable family feel. ALL the staff at The Palms mirrors Carlos for providing the best possible vacation, and we were 200% happy with our vacation.

With a full kitchen and Coco Loco close by, you can have it all. The pool was great for the kids. The staff is very helpful. There are lots of options for excursions. Small menu exists for Breakfast and Lunch.

Highly recommend - white sand beach, well kept grounds with nice pool and pleasant service. We stayed for a week and took day trips with Javier from lovingcostarica.com and had a perfect vacation. You'll have opp to get beach experience here and then take day trips into rain forest, volcanos, etc. within 90 min from here.
