“Jaco Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

What a wonderful place, condos are wonderful and safe. In fact the whole town Jaco is safe, no problems. We were there for a month and the staff is excellent. Planning on maybe coming back next year. Its very hot here, but no rain, only sun. Everything is close, supermarkets, liquor store, and all restaurants, that's a plus. The beach is about a 10 too 15 minute walk from condo. Probably the part that we don't like so much or the beaches, dark sand and Stoney and rip tides, but pretty too watch sun sets.n

Room Tip: Only two stories tall, lots of shade, we have friends staying on both levels, no complaints. Very qu...

This is a great place, units are excellent, grounds are perfect and the staff is top notch.

Everything you need is in easy walking distance. Any and all tours experiences can be booked for you by Christian or Fany in the manager's office. Great 24 hour security at the gate and grounds.

Love, love, love this place.

We stayed for a week with our 13- and 11-year old kids. The location couldn't be better - 1 block from the beach and close to restaurants/bars/shops. Christian and Fanny were extremely helpful setting up our tours, and providing restaurant recommendations. Even when our luggage didn't arrive, Christian helped communicate with the airline. Beautifully landscaped; modern; great security; well-equipped; comfortable. We couldn't recommend it more!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this property. The gardens are lovely and the pool was a great place to socialize and cool off during the heat of the day. One suggestion I would make is to make it clear that guests are not to "reserve" lounge chairs around the pool by putting their belongings on them and not showing up for hours. The property is perfectly situated, close to restaurants and shopping and the beach. Cristian was extremely helpful, prompt to attend to our every need. A few days after we left Jaco, we realized that my husband's bank card was missing. I let Cristian know about this and he made every effort to try to track it down for us. Thank you again Cristian!

Thank you for taking your time writing us your review. It was a pleasure helping you tracking your missing card. I hope everything is taken care of.

We will implement some ideas to make sure no one reserves a pool chair while not using the pool.

Not only was our condo perfect, but the grounds are beautiful and the staff is excellent - thank you Cristian! The location couldn't be better - close to the market, the dining, the shopping! Even though it's located only 1 block off the main street, you walk into the courtyard and you're in a tropical paradise - no street noise at all! The only thing we missed was a fitness center, other than that, the property and our stay in Jaco was absolutely fabulous!

Room Tip: We stayed in Suite #5 and it was perfect! Second floor, great view of the pool area, relatively nois...

I spent a month, and I wish it could have been longer. The standards were everything you could expect from the word 'luxury'. Christian, the manager, was extremely helpful, with impeccable English and a very charming manner. The location is excellent - in the centre of the town and very near the beach, and the security was of a very high standard.

Room Tip: As far as I could see, they did not vary very much.

My GF and I stayed for 2 nights and would have loved to have a couple more, we had a 2 bedroom but for the price it was well worth it, we should have invited friends! Christian the manager was a huge help giving us advice on food, transport, and setting up tours. This place is very clean, they have a guard at the gate 24/7, not that you have to worry about safety here as we never felt in any danger even when we were out at the bars late at night. It was would great for a multi-family place to stay or for two couples, and even for us with on two people it was half the price of a similar quality place in the states. Full kitchen with ice maker in our room, and TV that had two football games on Sunday! Thanks!
