I'm a Marriott Vacation Club owner who normally stays at The Ko Olina Beach Club in Oahu. This year I used the points to go to Costa Rica. The staff at this hotel raised the bar beyond my expectations. First of all everybody knew my name and pronounced it correctly- no easy task since it is French in origin. I live in the Midwest and my name gets butchered constantly. The location is central to the following activities: surfing, ATV exploring and deep sea fishing. A world class Marina is a 10 minute walk away. Jaco Beach is a great place to surf and is a 10 minute drive away. Same distance for the ATV experience. The concierge will gladly arrange the trips but my online experience arranging my own excursions worked very well and was much more economical. About the staff: we got really dirty doing the ATV trails. I was embarrassed as to how much we dirtied the room so I left a very generous tip for the maid. When I returned later in the day the room was immaculate but the tip was still there. I confronted the maid and told her that the tip was for her but she said she was just doing her job. Then I told her it was a gift from me to her so she gladly accepted it. I can't say enough good things about the staff here and Costa Ricans in general. My vacation club points included two 90 minute massages which were essential ways to end the two days spent on Jaco Beach surfing. I arranged my own charter fishing-make sure to tell the service to bring live bait otherwise you could spend valuable day light watching the first mate catch sardines. The hotel chef cooked my catch to perfection, added sides and made a great display for only $20/person.
