“Wonderful stay, great staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

Ferdinand and Julie were responsive and helpful from our 1st contact. Their suggestions were spot on and thank you so much for doing our initial grocery shopping. Those expecting "luxury" as defined in the states will be disappointed, but the condo was very nice- the fluffy white robes are a nice touch.
All staff very friendly, felt safe with my 3 children.
My only complaint was a group of "meatheads" who thought a side of the pool belonged to them- blasting completely in appropriate music( x - rated lyrics). Grow up, body building does not make u a man.

We stayed at The two floor f5 and it was amazing. The apartment is a 3br 2 1/2 bath facing the ocean with a roof deck. Close enough to go to town to buy things and claritas has great afternoon food. Would definitely stay here again. Great sunset view and large enough to host 5 people.

Our group of 4 friends stayed at Bahia Encantada - A2 for 9 nights. The condo was perfect for it's location - it was far enough out of the main area of Jaco but close enough that we walked into town almost every evening for supper or daytime for groceries. The location within the complex was also very delightful - being right in front with the sand right below us and the ocean view unobstructed by other accommodations made our breakfast on the balcony very peaceful and serene. The pool area was very substantial with both shade and sun areas and 3 different pools - nice to have a few options for swimming instead of just one small pool. Although we did have a few inconveniences - our A/C quit one day, our dryer was not heating and our entrance cards kept getting deprogrammed, it did not have a negative effect on our vacation. The staff, in particular, Fernan the manager and the security guards (in letting us in) were very helpful in correcting these issues. We only had to sleep one night without the A/C and wait a couple days for the dryer. The only downfall for this particular condo was the owners lack of necessities - a toaster that works on both sides, maybe a few plastic cups if glass is not allowed by the pool, a couple of better knives with a sharp edge to cut the amazing fruit that we enjoyed for breakfast. It would be in the best interest for the owners to put a little money back into upgrading this condo. Overall these inconveniences were minor and we would still recommend this property to anyone interested in Jaco.

Stayed in #G-2 during my recent fishing trip. The condo was very, very nice. 3 bedroom condo was very spacious, nicely furnished with a beautiful balcony that gave a direct pool and beach view. The staff was very helpful.

Bahia Encantada exceeded my expectations.

We showed up and everything was perfect with the condo.This condo J2 has Air conditioning, that's very important, it's my understanding that not all of the condos have air conditioning. The condo had 3 nice sized bedrooms, & 3 Bathrooms, very important for everyone. Each bedroom has it's own balcony. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Unit J2 was great!

Booked this condo using the feedback and great reviews on Trip Advisor. Wasn't disappointed. We spent 9 days (family or 6) in a 3 bedroom condo Dec. 27 - Jan. 5 and loved it!!! The condo was well equipped and tastefully decorated. Location is at the north end of the beach which appeared to be slightly quieter and less busy than in the central and southern end. So we had no issues with noise (except New Years Eve :-) ) The grounds staff was very friendly and helpful and the DayStar Property staff were as well. Even though it is at the far end of the beach there are several 'Sodas' and good restaurants within a short 5-10 min walk. The beach is literally steps from the pool and lounge area. The waves are awesome and our two kids (12&13) had endless fun in the waves and then switching to the pool to chill out. Overall, highly recommend this resort!!!

We just returned from 2 weeks staying in condo F1. We rented the condo through the owner Chris Wyborne from California. The condo was absolutely beautiful, it was on the ground floor facing the ocean. It had 3 bedrooms and was perfect for our family of 4. I would highly recommend this condo unit to others. Fernan the building super is on hand every single day. He is wonderful. We rented a car from Zuma car rental in Jaco would highly recommend them as well. They picked us up and drove us back to the airport. We had a fantastic holiday and would stay here again in a heart beat.
