“Comfort and Luxury right on the Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

The condo was very nice. All tile, nicely furnished, and had all the things we're used to. The best thing about this place is its location. You can step out from the property onto the beach. It is gated with security personnel there 24/7. Even access from the beach is tightly controlled. Pool was good, beautiful landscaping. The large balcony was a plus.

I had a fantastic trip to Costa Rica and to be able to sit on my deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean as the surfers are out trying to catch a wave was amazing!

A fantastic unit I stay in. As a owner of multiple timeshares in the U.S. (via Starwood and Marriott), I would rate Diamante Del Sol equal, if not better that most of the places I have stayed!

Thanks for a great relaxing vacation.

My wife and I, her sister, husband and son stayed at this property mid February. Very nice location right on the beach and close to many restaurants, grocery stores, etc. We seemed to have arrived at a time when there was a lot of work going on (renos, painting, AC cleaning). The pool was pretty dirty for the first week, but was cleaned out and great for week two.

A couple of picks; the unit was lacking in decent cooking pots and pans and there were only a couple of garbage bags. When I stay in a condo I don't expect to have to pick up garbage bags. I will use them to keep the place clean, but they should be there.

The next thing; no barbecues!!???!! Really! I know they are tough to find in Costa Rica and are expensive, but when on vacation its nice to be able to barbecue some steak or chicken. We bought a couple of large fresh Red Snappers and had to cook them in the oven which I really hate to do in such a hot place.

Aside from those couple of disappointments, the people at the office were extremely helpful and responsive and helped us arrange airport transport and a last minute sightseeing trip. They were great.

Love the location, the people, the food, everything!

I have stayed with DayStar Condos for several years. Always loved staying at BahiaAzul, then we started staying at Diamente, still like the complex however there had been some problems with our rooms in the past, but things have changed with a new management at DayStar and so much has improved. I understand all vacation rentals have their issues, but now the reservations desk at DayStar helps you right away or at least lets, you know what is going on. DayStar is the place to book tours, get info on restaurants and to stay. They have the best prices in town and the variety of units to choose from. We will always stay in a DayStar condo.

Just back from a week at this condo right on the beach in Jaco. The unit was very nice! Furnishings were very comfortable. Nice big balcaony to sit on and watch the surfers and the amazing sunsets. Nice central location in Jaco. Across the street from grocery store, pharmacy, Subway etc. The grounds are spotless and well maintained. The pool area is beautiful! Even a few iguana's around. My only issue with the units in this complex are the showers. They have the larger heads that spray little streams under low pressure. They are also at about 8 feet high! I have short hair and would take me 10 minutes just to rinse it. The wife would be in there for 30 minutes!

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!
