Palms Residence Villas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 4, 2012

I stayed here for a week with my wife and family when vacationing in Costa Rica. I was really surprised at the level of service this place offered. When we arrived a nice bottle of Red Wine was waiting for us along with fresh fruit, and flower arrangements. The staff went above and beyond to answer all of our questions and Roy the concierge makes the best Margarita and Passionfruit martini we ever had. The pool an grounds are in incredible condition and the location is right on the Pacific Ocean

I can honestly say that the Palms in Playa Flamingo is one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITES! We visited in March during spring break with our 2 teenage daughters. Every aspect of our stay was perfect. We arrived late in the evening and were greeted by Sandra the night manager. Our kitchen was stocked with drinks, milk, juice, coffee, fruit and cereal. What a nice treat! The facilites are new, luxurious, comfortable, and clean with a well appointed kitchens, robes, daily maid service etc. The grounds are impecable, the pool and pool bar are situated within close proximitey of every unit (so there is not bad unit). We enjoyed 7 beautiful pacific sunsets. Having no restaurant on site is not a problem because Roy, the English-speaking-multitasking-always smiling, and ever so helpful concierge is also a chef/cook who can prepare a lunch off the menu (until 4) or a custom dinner. The prices are very fair, ie $3 for a beer,and about $13 for a chicken sandwich or ceviche, unilke the robbery that goes on at most hotels. There are also several excellent restaurants close by (Papaya- Brasilito), Mar y Sol, Maries, Angelina's, who will send a driver to pick you up. Roy also arranged our fabulous day of horses, zip lines, volcanos and mud baths at Boriquen. Roy's brother Walter is a cab driver which made it easy for us to get around as we didn't rent a car. The other wonderful staff members are Joanna the manager and Sarah. What a great staff they have! They arranged in room pedicures and massages which were about $30 each. What a deal! Another feature is FREE long distance to the US and local, and wireless internet. We will definately go back. We just hope it doesn't get too popular and all of the units sell!

Room Tip: There is no bad room at this perfect property. Fly into LIR which is about an hour away. Pay Costa...

Beautiful facilities. This was an amazing experience from the moment we went thru the gates. The personell at The Palms are there to make sure vacation is one to remember. Everyone is kind, professional and they want you to be comfortable and happy. Roy gave us exceptional service and was ready to make us any drink, lunch request or special dinner. He is a fantastic chef and bartender. He guided us on recommendations of sites to see, tours to take, private fishing trips and restraunts. All very good and reasonably priced. The Villas were so beautiful and tastefully decorated. There had all the comforts of home and all age group could enjoy this resort. Would love to invest in this beautiful resort.
