“Great stay...safe, clean, affordable, and convenient.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

My husband and I stayed here Jan 11-18th and had a great week! The condo is awesome, 2 bedrooms, 2 bath, kitchen with plates, cups, utensils, etc,, a safe, and a washer and dryer. The condos also have wireless internet access so bring your laptop (yeah!). The condo is about 1.5 hrs from San Jose airport. Jaco is not a fancy area so be prepared for first impressions to be a little less than what you may originally expect. After wondering around downtown for a few days, we learned our way around and felt comfortable. Lots of places to eat and hang out, a grocery store across the street. The beaches are pretty if you look at the big picture (meaning beach with mountains in the back) but the shore has a dirty looking sand, and it just doesn't look clean. If you catch a day with big waves, you'll see lots of surfers which is pretty cool. My husband loved a gym that was on the beach (within walking distance); he called it a "Rocky" gym with a couple of boxing rings, not a lot of equipment, and no windows, just the ocean breeze. Cristain in the office helped us arrange a fishing trip and a zip-line trip. You can also take a taxi over to the famous Los Suenos Marina for $10-$12 (worth seeing) Over all, we had a GREAT time and I wish we'd stayed a month instead of a week.

Monte Carlo Condominium is just beautiful place to relax and feel comfortable.
Condos are very specious, beautifully decorated and furnished, with private outdoor area.
Everything is surrounded with lush, tropical landscape.

Management and staff is very kind and friendly, and prompt on all requests, especially Cristian. He helped us a lot with organizing tours and places to explore.

Definitely recommend Monte Carlo condominiums to anyone who plans to visit Costa Rica. This is your place to stay !!

this is a beautiful property with a great staff. All the reservations/transportation issues were handled great via email with very prompt thorough answers to all questions. the property itself is beautiful with a lush courtyard and beautiful pool. the 24 hr guard and in condo safes werte a great sense of security. my father and i spent a week in the condo which was very nice with everything you could need. we traveled to costa rica for significant dental work and would highly recommend dr chaves located right across the street. Over all a great stay and i look forward to returning in the future.

We have stayed here for 4 or 5 times during 2011. Condos are great and very clean, management and all the staff are very friendly.
It has a great location in Jaco, with a movie theather near by, super market and a lot of restaurants as well.
We go there every month if possible since it is a secure place to be at and it is only 90 minutes away from San Jose.

I stayed here with my wife on our honeymoon. Staff was very nice, quick to respond to the few requests that we had. Condo was very nice, high end materials, and very good prices. Security was good, which is nice to have in Jaco. I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to my family and friends.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room. We were shown a bottom floor room, which was nice, but if you don't m...
