This place is at best a dump!!!! We had to have the AC in the master bedroom fixed 3 times. The bed is a 4" matress on wooden slats. The maid service wouldn't leave clean towels even though we asked for more towels 4 time in 5 days. There is only one tv per condo. the wi-fi that's advertised only... More

First impression of this place was really good, it looks fancy and clean from the outside, but once you get into the buildings everything chances, cracks on the the walls, bad paint jobs, broken elevator buttons, and 4 out of 5 of the A/C's where broken as well. The ONLY good thing about this place was de pool.

This was a disappointment. The unit itself was spacious, but very cheaply furnished. Large cockroaches spotted scurrying across the floor. Strong sewage smell coming from the dishwasher when opened. Reception desk was useless. No recommendations or information about the area provided. Everything about the place seemed bare-bones, excepting the pool. I can't figure out why this property received so many... More

My wife, daughter, son-in-law and I just returned from our first visit to Costa Rica. We had a wonderful vacation and plan on return visits. Included in our great vacation was a 5 night stay at the Jaco Bay Condos by Ramada. Prior to our trip I did read some of the less than satisfying comments and reviews. After our... More

The complex is a work in progress. It seems like it was being built and someone ran out of money because two of the towers remain unfinished. The two towers that are unfinished are a bit of an eyesore and should be wrapped to cover the blight. There is no full time reception desk; The reception desk is located in... More

I have stayed at this complex four times and will be returning spring 2012. The complex has gone thru some growing pains and I will be the first to admit the 2009 visits were less than satisfactory while under the management of Ramada, who no longer manage the place. The complex has retained the name of Ramada only. I met... More

I'm just wrapping up a 6 week stay at this location from October 28th until Dec 12th. I read some of the previous reviews and see that two of the "bad" reviews occurred at the same time, during a power outage. In the 6 weeks here the power did go out twice. Both times it came back on within an... More

First of all, Jaco is not the best place in Costa Rica. It is a tourist trap, the beach is lousy, and it's dangerous -- more dangerous than other towns of its size. That being said, if you stay in the Jaco Bay Condo, it is not a terrible place to stay assuming that the price is right for you.... More

This was supposed be the best family vacation ever. Ended up being the worst vacation ever! Where to start?When we arrived, there was no power in our condo. We rented from a private tenant and he failed to pay the electric bill on time. We had to pay out of pocket to rent another room. Power wasn't turned on until... More

We were robbed (burglarized) at this condo resort and we believe that the management of the resort may be involved. The burglary was clearly a planned heist. No less than 10 minutes of our departure from the condo on our first day of a one-week rental stay, a burglar entered our room using a card key and stole two diamond... More
