“We were in paradise for 2 weeks!!”

person found this review helpful

Having been to Costa Rico only once before, we knew we wanted to return for a family vacation to the Guanacaste region on the Pacific Coast and this was the winter when we really needed a break. After searching many websites I stumbled on Blue Water Properties and called them for advice on how to access their website. The staff was immediately helpful in tutoring me through the vagaries of the internet and in immediately recognizing that for our needs, Playa Flamingo as opposed to Tamarindo was the place for us. Their website for rentals was clear and easy to use.
When we arrived we met first with our concierge Mateo who was wonderfully helpful in suggesting trips and activities to enhance our stay.
The Oceanica condos are literally a few hundred yards from the best beach in the area with only a steep paved walk and flight of stairs to climb up on the way home. The views from every direction are breathtaking. The apartment at 824exceeded our expectations on every level. It is large, clean, well equipped and well maintained. Sitting on the balcony morning, noon and night became our favorite activity because the view and the breezes are incredible. Our only suggestion is room darkening curtains for the bedrooms. The infinity pool at the condo was never very busy but also immaculately maintained and kept at a cool temperature to help offset the 95+degree days of endless bright sunshine.
The staff at Blue Waters responded immediately to every call or question and always with patience and courtesy. They felt like our family while we were there.
Playa Flamingo is a charming small town with several good restaurants - especially Maria's - stores and really anything you need.
This was a perfect vacation for our family and two weeks in paradise go by really fast.
We felt so lucky to have stumbled on Blue Waters because they made this a successful and perfect vacation for our family.

“Best R&R Vacation Ever”
Reviewed 29 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

When planning this trip we decided we wanted a very laid back vacation. We chose Costa Rica and decided we wanted a condo so we had more room and could cook if we wanted to.

The condo was very roomy - 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (the en-suite bathroom lead to a walk in closet). There was 4 decks to choose from and the timing of our vacation was perfect to lay in bed and have the full moon shine in through the master bedroom patio doors.

Playa Flamingo is a small community with a surprisingly wide variety of restaurants to chose from. There are many water activities if you desire and you can book a variety of adventure tours if you are looking to keep busy. The condo is a 3-4 minute walk to the beach.

There is also a pool at the condo and we seldom found more than a few people there although this could have been due to the time of year we stayed.

There are several grocery stores available by car or cab. Cab fares are inexpensive but we always asked first so we knew what we are paying up front.

The condo was very clean with all the essentials. What I enjoyed was having a washer/dryer on hand. This allows for less luggage and the bonus of being able to walk in the door when arriving home and putting away clean clothes instead of heading for the laundry room! Who would think being able to do laundry on vacation would be such a plus.

We found the Oceanica online and booked through Blue Water Properties of Costa Rica. All the staff were very friendly and most helpful.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Oceanica and will return!

Liked best: Location to amenities and the view!
Liked least: The condo is located on a hill. I have had knee surgery (some current knee pain) but was able to manage. Walking to & from the condo would pose a challenge for anyone with physical limitations.
