We just returned from our week in Jaco at the Bahia Azul condos. This was a great place to stay. Although our condo was first floor and right next to the Security Guard stand so we could hear his walkie talkie squawking, it was very convenient. A not so short but easy walk into town allowed us to forgo the car rental. Although at night we did take cabs which cost around a $1.50 each way. We were literally across from the ocean and were able to witness beautiful sunsets and the sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep every night. My kids loved the beach (although beware of rocks until you are out into the water a bit. There is a lovely pool that we hung out at prior to showering and heading out to dinner. I would highly recommend this complex. Although I rented directly from an owner, the staff at Day Star were extremely helpful and easy to deal with.
