The Palms

  • 5 of 5

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!

: Sun + service + swim = sublime!

  • 5 of 5

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.

The Best Resort We Have Stayed at in the World!!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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 tropical 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!!!

The Palms, Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a week stay at The Palms. This was our 2nd trip to Costa Rica and by far, the best. Flamingo Beach is hands down the best beach we visited in Costa Rica. The Palms and its location on the beach is truely the closest thing to paradise that I have encountered. Even though we visited in July (the rainy season) we encountered very little rainfall and almost perfect weather. The staff at the Palms were exceptional and always there to help and line up numerous daily excursions. The afternoon sail on the Catamaran was amazing and still our favorite excursion. I would highly recommend The Palms and Flamingo Beach for any vacation plans!!!

Over the Top Five Star Resort on the Best Beach in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

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.

In summary, if you go to North Pacific Costa Rica, stay at The Palms.
