“Fantastic Condos Right by the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for one week along with our 5 month old daughter. The condos are fantastic and the location is also great. It is a short walk to the beach and there is a great pool on the property. There is a great patio overlooking the courtyard and pool. Some of the furniture inside the condo was a bit old and could use replacing, but mostly great. One of the mattresses in the 2nd bedroom was broken, but we did not use the 2nd bedroom.

I'm not sure where all the complaints about Jaco are coming from. The beach is not the best in Costa Rica, but the town itself is great. It's mostly locals and is not overrun by American tourists like most of the country. The beach is almost all locals.

My only complaint about this property is that it is gated and seemed rather isolated from the area. Everyone staying inside the property was American and I sometimes felt as if we were staying in the USA rather than in Costa Rica. However, this seems to be a problem in most of Costa Rica & Panama, not just here. We travel to experience culture, and this is not necessarily the best place for that. That being said, if we returned to Jaco, we would stay here again without hesitation. All the people staying there were extremely welcoming, helpful, and friendly, though I did find the frequent Obama bashing from one group rather irritating.

For the past 8 years we have been staying at club del sol, its become a home rather than just a place to stay. The location is great!! There is a minimart, soda, and surf shack right across the way. The beach is about a 2 minute walk, and an 8 minute bike ride into town.. a taxi into town will usually cost around $3. The cleanliness of the rooms are great! Very nice modern decor.. The staff is always so friendly and wiling to help with whatever you need. its also a plus to have a washer/dryer/dishwasher! Trust me every time you go to club del sol your bound to make new friendships. We were fortunate enough to become good friends with David, Kelly, Steve, and Melanie. We see them every year and always have a great time with them! If your visiting Costa Rica and need a clean, friendly, roomy, great location place to stay, than club del sol is the place for you. Pura Vida!!!

5 stars, but I would list 10 stars if I could. The place is right near the beach, great staff, beautiful property and the rooms decor were inviting and relaxing.
Plenty of room and the pool's eco-friendly (alternative to chlorine) didn't burn our eyes and made swimming in the water much more pleasant.
Great Place to Stay!

Room Tip: rooms farther away from the main highway

These condos are great. Amazing value, clean, safe and the staff was unbelievably helpful. The pool was great and the walk to the beach was quick. We felt safe and were treated like family. Thank you guys for everything. We will be back and hopefully sooner than later!

This was our second stay at Club del Sol. First stay was for the summer of 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Julieta, Lenin and all of the staff are friendly and very helpful. Condos are roomy, clean and cool. Kitchens are not lavishly equipped but adequate, appliances work (washer/dryer/dishwasher), wi-fi usually works and pool setting is gorgeous. Some road noise but got better later in the night. Added bonus was our daughter and friends joined us for a week and she met Mr. Right while zip lining - and this lead to our second stay here for her wedding.

Great place if you are staying more than a couple of nights and prefer some eating in, doing laundry and relaxing.

Room Tip: If you are real sensitive to noise, ask for a room away from the road. Feel free to ask questions...

Great value, great rooms. Quiet! Clean. Friendly and a nice pool. The family loved it. The niece loved the pool. Walking distance to the beach. And the room was cool, the bed was not the best but it was a minor thing.

We found this condo through TripAdvisor, and as usual, were very satisfied. The condo was bright, spacious and well equipped. We were a family of five with 10 thru 16 year old kids. We stayed a Thurs. and Fri. night. Someone below us had music playing loudly, but it was only heard in the master bath, so we could shut the door and keep out their entertainment.
The pool was pleasant, the beds were great. Wish we'd stayed longer here, as the laundry in our condo would have been very beneficial later in our stay!
We drove to town and beach, though you probably could have walked to the south end of the beach relatively easily from here. Tortuga Surf School was just down the road (on the beach).
Also saw many multi-generational families coming in for the weekend.

Room Tip: Our room was 2 king size beds and a pull out sofa. Washer and dryer with soap provided!
