A luxurious stay in your own private villa with all the comforts of home, on a white-sand Pacific beach

The Lowdown

What does paradise mean to you? Is it a spacious luxury villa on a white-sand beach? If so, you’ll take quite a shine to Flamingo Residences, whose namesake vacation homes are set around the pristine shores of Costa Rica’s Playa Flamingo. The seaside setting and well-appointed, kitchen-equipped two-story abodes aren’t the only things to love about this TripAdvisor favorite, either – as a guest, you can take advantage of all sorts of fun tropical activities, like surfing; snorkeling; sea kayaking; and swimming in the two pools, one of which has an infinity edge.
After a busy day of bocce ball, basketball or beach volleyball, or a lazy day of doing nothing at all, retreat to your well-appointed digs, which also boast a kitchen, a dining room, a living area, two terraces and two bedrooms. Arrange a meal with the private chef, who might prepare produce from a local market or the groceries that were purchased before your arrival; receive a treatment from the massage therapist; or plan an outing for a later date. There are tons of other paradises to explore in the region, if you can tear yourself away from this one. Ask the concierge to set up a tour of a cave or the cloud forest, a bath in hot springs, a casino night or a leisurely tube down a peaceful river.

While staying here, you’ll be able to enjoy a variety of watersports, like snorkeling, surfing, paddleboarding and sea kayaking, and fit in as much sunbathing as you please. On the property’s grounds, also try out bocce ball, beach volleyball or soccer, or avail yourself of the indoor basketball center. Work with the concierge to arrange off-site outings to caves, the cloud forest, hot springs, mud baths, whitewater rivers or zip lines, or classes in salsa, cooking, karate or surfing.

Perfect resort and location!

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.

Amazing vacation

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
