Wonderful Beach Front Location. Centrally located near Jaco town center, this stunning beach front complex houses some amazing condos. Great amenities, including a stunning pool and beach front views. You definitely get your value at this location.

This is the perfect place for large groups or families. We had a group of about 12 split between 2 rooms. If you like the comforts of home - this place is for you. Our room was on the top floor. Elevators are tiny and didn't always work. The condo was spacious - 3 bdrm 2 bath. Kitchen was furnished...

The hotel is on the North end of Jaco and we rented the apartment directly form one of the owners. The air conditioning worked really well but it would not turn off. The breakfast bar had absolutely nowhere to plug in and there were almost no outlets to be found. There was a party in the condo next to ours...

The condo building is terrific with wonderful pools. Our phone was not working for long periods. Lost Beach staff are very polite and seem responsive but complaints either don't get resolved or are done very slowly. Three nights every week Claritas, next door, have loud music playing until midnight. It is not unusual for guests to party all night in...

Hi Gregor. We apologize for the inconvenience with the phones we where in the process of changing internet providers and phone service as well. This has all been resolved. As for Claritas we are fighting this problem every week with the local authorities as it is against the law to play music past 10pm in a residential area. Thank you...

Jaco CR is a great destination location for those looking for sun, relaxation, and a hopping nightlife. Bahia Encantada is a nicely appointed, safe location for you to hang your hat during your visit to Costa Rica. You enter a guarded gate that has a 24 hour security guard that was very attentive and always greeted us with a smile....

My friends and I stayed for 6 weeks and kept extending our trip so we wouldn't have to leave paradise! The views of the beach and sunset are iconic, and it's one of the only places with a cute little bar next door for cocktails day or night.

Condo was nice lots of room and most amenities. Close walk to town. Nice sunset and close to the beach but very rough and not for young children or non swimmers.

Hi Cathy. I apologize for this and this situation has been brought up to security. This should never happen at Bahia Encantada. We are a family resort and make that very clear in our agreement. Hopefully we can make this up to you in the future.

Booked through Home Away, at a very lucrative rate. On arrival we were blown away. 3 bed, 2.5 bath condo for five of us for a week.
