My husband and I could not have been happier with our stay in these condos as well as Playa Potrero. The pictures and descriptions more than match reality. In fact it was even better than I had hoped. Great price too for what you get. This property is well maintained and clean, the view and sunsets are AMAZING. All the while lots of wildlife to enjoy in the nearby trees with many birds and butterflies. The beach is quiet and lovely and the ocean here is truly perfect for swimming. So nice! The management are extremely helpful, friendly and for English speakers, have excellent English. Eduardo and Maria were especially helpful and sweet, wanting to answer any and all questions and make sure we were well satisfied. The management can also help arrange any tours or excursions that you may want to do. We had them arrange a trip to Monte Verde for us. It was a dream come true! Our guide, Juan Carlos, could not have been better.He shared a wealth of knowledge with us regarding wildlife, the country, culture etc. His Engilsh was fantastic. He knew how to spot wildlife and birds and would stop our van to show us the incredible birds along the road like toucans, macaws, trogans and more. My husband and I had booked one other excursion ourselves, based off trip advisor reviews, but it wasn't nearly as good as the one the Krain management booked for us. Trust them, they have good connections. I am pretty picky about where we stay and you would have to be pretty critical to not like this property or beach. It is great! Plenty of other nearby beautiful beaches to visit and lots of restaurants and mini markets close by. If you are into small and quiet this is the place for you versus luxury all inclusives. It's pretty perfect in our opinion!! Thank you Krain management for a wonderful first time experience in Costa Rica.
Our family of four(2 teen boys) stayed at this apt for 5 nights. The apt was just like pictures - very nicely decorated, equipped kitchen, roomy and comfortable beds.
The views and location was perfect! The condo is located on a residential beach - very quiet and private. The sand was a bit dark, but water was clear and perfect temperature. The beach was calm enough for family with young kids, yet provided enough waves for some good boogie board fun.
There is a "boutique" supermarket and few restaurants within walking distance. Many choices for dining and shopping within 5-10 minute drive.
Flamingo beach is a 5 minute drive and 10 min drive to Playa Conchal - by far most beautiful beach in the area.
The reason for 4 stars is because there were painters in the building 3 of the 5 nights we were there and they started early in the morning (6:45am) making it impossible to sleep late. We were not notified of this beforehand - a big mistake on Krain's Mgmt part.
