“Good, above-average condominium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Just got back from Jaco and stayer here. Nothing fancy but it is clean, well-kept, well-equipped, and very convenient. The condominium that we stayed in was the same as so many resort units but that is not a bad thing. The Daystar staff is outstanding and I liked that we were given a late check out until 5, even though we had to pay a little for it. If you have to stay in Jaco, this is as good a place as any.

We stayed at in Costa Rica at Paloma Blanco for 5 days and 4 nights and it was wonderful. The condo was 3 bedrooms and 3 baths with a large patio from the living room and access to the patio from the Master Bedroom. There were stairs from the patio to an upstairs deck. With 2 pools and facing Jaco Beach was the most incredible view.

Concierge was great with setting up everything for us. We did have an issue with the AC not working in the secondary bedroom but we did not let that ruin our time spent there.

All in all, one of the best properties my family/friends and I have ever stayed in.

We stayed there last week and would love to live there full time,,,,,it is that nice. It is a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. There is an elevator so you don't have to walk up steps like a lot of the places. Master has a queen size bed, flat screen tv, and door to the large balcony that had a couple chairs and a table and chair set for 4.overlooking the big pool. There was a small balcony off the living area as well as access to the large balcony from there. My son is a surfer and we could watch him surf from the little balcony and even tell which surfer he was sometimes...so that says how close we were to the beach in this condo complex. We lacked for nothing here. Plenty of towels, sheets, kitchen equipment, etc. Loved having the washer and dryer so we had clean clothes for the rest of the trip. There is a cleaning fee that you pay since it is a condo, so you need to figure the additional charge in the price.,
They were putting a roof on one of the buildings and a full timer said they were doing a lot of other repairs to make the place look even better so there may be some construction noise. .
It is on the quiet end of Jaco and is very secure with the gates and guards to the parking and beach. I am not a fan of the main drag in Jaco so loved staying in the neighborhood of the condo. Couple good places to eat without going to town. The one thing....they could use more parking. The spots are tight backing into if you drive SUVs. If it is a busy time, I have no idea where the park the vehicles for 1/2 of the condos.

Just returned from our vacation to Costa Rica. La Paloma Blanca is a terrific place to stay. Our unit on the 3rd floor had 3 bedrooms/baths, a large patio, and stairs that go to another rooftop deck. Unit was spacious, clean, and all that we could ask for - just gorgeous! My wife and daughters couldn't have been happier. Complex has several pools and the beach is only about 100 yards away. Daystar was a pleasure to deal with and we can't say enough about Karina, who was always there to help us out with any questions. You won't regret staying here - one of our very best vacations ever,

We are currently staying here. First off Tatty...what can we say that would do justice to all her help? She is the BEST reservation specialist I have worked with ever. Unit J1 is ground floor, 3 BR with a semi private pool. Although the pool is open to everyone, it is small and opens out from this unit, making it feel like your own place. The kitchen utensils and cookware are in need of replacing and you will not find near the amount listed on your inventory. The unit is much larger than it appears on their VRBO listing and more than enough room for our party of 5. The unit is very nice. My only complaint would be the living room furniture is very uncomfortable and some of it is in disrepair. That being said..who should be inside? There are two large patios on the ocean side with a table seating six and a smaller table on the other. Two small balcony type patios with no seating off each of the other BR. There is one great master, an additional smaller master, and one queen room. Perfect for us. We were pleasantly surprised that the unit was very large. Cabs are 2-3 dollars, american money accepted most everywhere. I have been extremely happy with Day Star and this property and TATTY WE LOVE YOU!

Room Tip: the units on either smaller pool are ocean front or view..to me the best~ J1 was my favorite for co...

This is my third time staying at La Paloma Blanca and once again, we were not disappointed. The condos are clean and 4 adults can comfortably stay in the 2 bedroom/2 bath units. In the past, maid service was available approximately every third day. This trip, unless you wished to pay for service...you were on your own. As far as I'm concerned...this was a good thing. I prefer not to have strangers in my place. There are washers/dryers to do your own laundry/towels/linens. A broom/mop is provided for cleaning, and if you NEED more towels/toilet paper the attentive and friendly staff are more than happy to oblige. I have only ONE complaint - and others might scoff at what this complaint is. Many of the other units had 2 flat-screened televisions...one in a bedroom and a larger one in the combo living room/kitchen area. The unit in which we stayed had a 24" tv...attached to the wall which was almost impossible to see due to the small size and the location. We were in Jaco during March Madness...and the guys would have enjoyed being able to SEE the scores. Recommendation - add tv's to the master bedroom, and update the size of each tv in the main living area.

Room Tip: Request a first floor room or one of the larger units.

Lupe is the best! She helped me setup a massage in our condo for my wife on her birthday. Knowing my wife would be at our condo at that time Lupe showed up with a cake and birthday candles for her. Made my wife's day! Lupe is a very special person, Daystar is lucky to have her on their team!
