“Best place to stay in Jaco!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2011

Although I haven't stayed anywhere else in Jaco, after staying at Vista Pacifico with Jan and Greg, why would I try anywhere else? The rooms were charming and well kept, breakfast was tasty and filling, the pool and gardens were refreshing and the view is beautiful. But the best part is the atmosphere that allows and even encourages guests to mingle and meet each other. Jan and Greg go out of their way to make it easy to book excursions and often can save you money! They have great recommendations on things to do in the area. Our teenage daughter felt right at home there, welcomed and accepted.

We really enjoyed this place, the owners, and other guests. Each morning was a gathering with free ample continental breakfast and a swim in the pool. It was a great location for us, away from the Jaco beach area proper. We enjoyed our apartment and the kitchen allowed us to store beverages and snacks but would be great for travelers who want to cook. This was my first time at a B and B, so I was a little unsure about it. I thought I wouldn't have enough privacy, but this was not the case at all. The owners keep just the right amount of presence so that they can provide for your needs without intruding. I loved it.

Jan and Greg, the owners, make you feel as part of their family. Great location, overview the bay, away from the crowd. One of the highlights of my trip to Costa Rica. Highly recommended.

The owners Jan and Greg are friendly, relaxed, welcoming and helpful. This was my second stay here and I will be back. The views are fantastic. I felt safe and I could cook my own meals in my apartment like room. Miss you guys.

This is our 3rd and final night, and hoped that we could show 6 stars instead of 5. There are two major characteristics that make this hotel outstanding. The first is the view from all four sides of the hotel, which is several hundred feet up overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the city of Jaco, and the splendid tropical foliage beneath. The second are our hosts, Jan & Greg. This management team goes out of its way to make sure you have the best possible vacation, From dining to driving suggestions to providing an excellent staff for hotel cleanliness, these owners are your guide for all your vacation needs, Enjoy Greg]s healthy yogurt drink for breakfast!

Lovely place, very clean, and very well furnished. Friendly owners, very nice breakfast. Highly recommend. Felt secluded in a nice way, great views. Lovely pool area. Friendly owners who were very helpful. Everything was very well thought out and put together.

We just spent 4 nights and 5 days at Vista Pacifico. We were traveling with our children, ages 16 and 13, and friends with children close to the same ages. We could not have had a better experience. Jan and Greg, the hotel's owners, treat everyonw like their personal friends. They are so helpful in every area. They recommend and book tours, give you great dinner ideas, and do whatever else they can to make sure you have a great vacation. The hotel is located atop a mountain with fantastic views and tropical breezes. It is immaculate - very very clean. The pool is great too! We would go out of our way to stay here. It is a fantastic deal for the money. Thanks, Jan and Greg for helping to make our Costa Rica vacation absolutely fantastic!
