“Great place to stay, great view, great balcony............”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

My wife and I are staying at Diamante del Sol for 2 months. Nice spacious 2 bedroom condo with a large deck, overlooking the Pacific Ocean giving us a spectacular view. The sunsets are simply amazing! The buildings are one block from the main street of Jaco where there are plenty of places to eat, shop or stop for a cool drink. One comment I should make is that we were very disappointed with the cleaning staff, the first 2 weeks they came in to clean left a lot to be desired. All in all I would recommend Diamante as a great place to enjoy you vacation.

Best vacation Yet! Staying in the penthouse of Daystar Diamante Del Sol. In the heart of Jaco, within walking distance to local dining, bars, shops, and so much more! The Daystar employees all have great costumer service skills and are very knowledgeable about the area! (Lisle, Angle, Sira, Helen, Pablo, Melissa, and Estaban are all wonderful contacts!) The property is clean, secure (security guards around), and right on the beach with amazing views not only of the water but the mountains too!

Just returned from a week at beautiful Jaco Beach and staying at the Daystar Diamante. The property was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. A couple of things really stood out for us about it. Firstly, the location was exceptional. It is located right in the middle of town so you have quick and easy access to all of the various restaurants and nightlife, this was so convenient. Secondly, had to be the service from the staff at the condo. Everyone from the cleaning staff to the front desk went out of their way to make sure we had an awesome time. Among the most notable was the actual Manager named Lisle, who gave us tons of helpful advice and went well above and beyond to help us with some pretty cool daytrips and excursions, which proved to make this one of the most interesting adventures we have ever been on. We would definitely recommend these condos to everyone, as it was key to us having such a great vacation.

Room Tip: I liked the higher rooms, the view is beautiful.

Our stay with you was the best experience I have had in the 16 years I've been coming to Costa Rica. Our rooms were very clean and beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless. The staff was professional and very attentive to our needs. Sharing a bottle of wine on the beach by the edge ocean under starlit skies is a memory that dreams are made of.

I will definitely be back.

You can book these through several sources: Daystar themselves, VRBO, or through Best In Jaco. Management was accommodating when we had problems. We stayed in 2 bedroom 3 bath unit, 402N. You must clean up well after cooking. Ants will appear regardless. Not the fault of management, it is the nature of the area. Spray the countertops and oven area with Windex to discourage the extra guests. Take them up on the offer to grocery shop in advance. You won't regret it! You'll need to run AC continuously to keep musty smell down, again it is the price you pay for staying in an extremely humid area! Washer and dryer was an unexpected plus. Management was very helpful with booking transportation and Jaco area events and excursions. Restaurants and nightlife only a short walk away. Read up on Jaco area in Trip Advisor for good advice on restaurants and activities. Unit is accurately shown in pictures, but could benefit from minor maintenance (paint job). Electronic safe available to secure valuables. Wifi worked well. Security so-so. Beach is not private as description may imply. Next to muddy river, so be ready to see surf turn brown after a heavy rain. Based on what other properties we saw, this appeared to be the nicest in the Jaco downtown area.

Great experience at this beautiful resort. The management went above and beyond. Lisle was more than accomodating while setting up all our daily activities, restaurant reservations and nightlife experiences.

My friends and I went to Jaco for a 5 night stay and the hotel was amazing. 4 bedroom and 4.5 baths with 3 balconies with amazing ocean front views, you can not ask for more! Property manager goes beyond normal job to take care of his guests to make sure we get the best experience possible. Highly recommended!
