“Best condo in Jaco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011

I stayed at Diamante del Sol with my family and friends who were traveling to Jaco for a wedding. We rented three 3 bedroom condos and four 2 bedroom condos, for approximately one week. I've stayed in other condo/hotels in Jaco and had initially organized to stay at another condo, but then changed our group stay to Diamante after learning about this newly built condo. From the first email correspondence with the staff at Day Star (owners of Diamante del Sol) I knew we made a good choice! The staff were all very kind, informative, and flexible in organizing our group stay. Special thanks to Veronique (Reservations Manager) and Anna (Diamante receptionist) for being all the support I could have asked for! I actually kinda miss them :)

Diamante Del Sol is centrally located in Downtown Jaco (close to banks, grocery stores, souvenir shops, and restaurants) and sits right on the beach. I was very impressed with the modern and luxurious design and finishes of the spacious condos (it made it difficult to go back to my small apartment in New York City).

This hotel is definitely a good value for larger groups; especially able groups who prefer and/or don't mind taking care of themselves and exploring the town (as opposed to traditional hotels with restaurants on site and daily room service).

My experience at Diamante del Sol was awesome. I definitely recommend this condo/hotel and can't wait to go back.

Diamonte del Sol is an upscale, high rise oceanfront condo conveniently located in Jaco. Accomodations are very nice. We felt this was a good value if you need more than one bedroom. The condo was well-appointed, although it smelled musty. The air conditioning worked most of the time, but not always.
Excellent pool. Beach is the worst in Jaco - rocky, not maintained, river runs in front of property. Staff is friendly and helpful, but only availabe from 8 to 5 (with some gaps when the office is closed for unknown reasons). Restaurants and grocery store nearby - we realy didn't a need a car. Ask about Graffiti restaurant, which is very close and excellent.
We would recommend, if you are not expecting first-class hotel type accomodations. If that's what you want, stay at the Marriott Los Suenos.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view. Big difference.

We stayed in unit 2-7C for the first week in July. This project was still in the process of being completed and is one of the higher end properties in Jaco. We were able to walk to everything, but did not hear the noise of downtown. It is directly on the beach with a great pool. The onsight management is out of this world and I felt like they were more like extended family helping us enjoy our vacation to the fullest. This was our second trip to the area and we love it so much that we purchased a unit in this project before we left.
