I have stayed at Bahia Encantada twice so far in 2016 and I'm completely sold on this place. The location is great, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Jaco, but close enough to a convenience store, soda (aka cheap locals cafe), beach bar, and a 2 minute walk from Crocs casino. The rooms are spacious... More

Our family stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom suite. We had a wonderful stay. There were a few concerns, however. We came with our 2 year old son and the balconies were not safe for small children. A child could easily fall through the railings. Also, the sliding glass doors to the balconies didn't lock, so we had to... More

We stayed in L1 for a week and were very disappointed. Pros: great location on ground floor near the pool and looking at the beach. Cons: it was so dirty and rundown. There were food splatters on the walls, fingerprints and dirt everywhere. The towels were dingy, stained and thread bare. The wicker patio furniture was falling apart. We had... More
