“Perfect Hideaway in Jaco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

We found this place through TA, and once again you did not lead us astray.
My boyfriend and I only stayed for one night, but this hotel would really be perfect for a longer stay and for exploring all the Central Pacific beaches.
Vista Pacifico is located up on a hill just before reaching the town center of Jaco. It is best for guests with cars, but I'm sure that you could also negotiate trips with local cab drivers, and the owners can also book tours.
The best part of this place is the friendly, peaceful vibe, so different from what you find in the center of Jaco (which is great for people watching, internatoinal food and drinks, but kind of sleazy). The owners are very kind, the gardens are lovely, the rooms are spotless, cozy and very private. We stayed in #8 which had a view off into the mountains, and an ample kitchenette. There is also a pool/ deck area where breakfast was served.
Breakfast was perfect for us: yogurt, granola, fruit, banana muffins, coffee and juice, just enough to get the day started.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

My husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary. The small hotel was perfect! Juliana and her husband we so friendly and welcoming. The one-bedroom apt was big, comfortable, clean and perfect for our 2 night stay. The pool was super clean and a nice way to cool down in the Jaco heat. The location was perfect for us. Away from all the noise of Jaco, but only a few min drive into the heart of everything. We will for sure recommend Vista Pacifico to our guests here traveling to Jaco and we will visit again! Pura Vida!

We stayed here over thanksgiving and had a blast! The room they gave us was a good sized apartment with kitchen and the most beautiful view especially at sunset/sunrise. There was a nice pool, but we mostly swam at the beach.
The place is off on its own so it's stats quiet with a fun drive up!
The price for this place is the best deal you'll ever find.

I visited this property with my parents three years ago and fell in love with the place. We returned this week from another fabulous trip together! We have stayed in rooms #4 and #7 and both were perfect for the three of us...two levels, incredible views...even a kitchen! I enjoy the relaxed feeling & environment of this family owned & managed oasis. The pool was sparkling clean...saw it being cleaned daily. Breakfast in the Rancho was delicious...a variety of tasty fruits & juices, pastries, yogurt...the cinnamon bread was my favorite! What a wonderful way to wake up before a trip North to a volcano or a drive south down the Pacific coast to Quepos or Domincal. We went south almost to Panama and back one day...it was amazing. This hotel has the best location right on top of the hill...million dollar views from the sea to fields. The grounds & gardens are well kept and inviting. The service has always been friendly and the accommodations lovely. We will return again soon.

We booked a night here after a 24 hour travel time from VT to CR. After being delayed, layed over, lost and slightly sacred Aparthotel was like a shimmering hilltop beacon of sanity and accomplishment. A beautiful hotel/inn perched high atop the busy little town of Jaco. Quiet, wonderfully decorated and lanscaped. The owners were great (from Canada eh) and very helpful with directions and suggestions. We only got to stay one night as we were enroute to Uvita. Can't say enough good things about it but i think the overwhelming feeling on trip advisor is this place is amazing. See you again soon!

This hotel is GREAT!
Reasonable rates, good location, clean and friendly! We enjoyed the privacy and quiet after a busy day in Jaco. Our room had a beautiful view.
The staff are great. Very helpful, always with a smile. I would recommend this hotel for my friends traveling to Costa Rica, and I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Rooms with a kitchenette are good for long stays

We stayed at the Vista Pacifico in February. We had a very quiet room with lovely clean kitchen and bathroom. The pool was awesome. James and Jules were so helpful. The breakfasts were the best we had on our entire 38 day trip. Thank you for a great time. We would go back for sure.
