Our family of six stayed at the Diamante del Sol in Jaco July 13-18, 2013 in a spacious 3-bedroom condo on the 5th floor. Our first reaction when we walked in was WOW. The unit was absolutely beautiful and the views were amazing. We were shocked to see that the unit also had 3 1/2 bathrooms, a large living/dining room area, a beautiful kitchen, and 3 balconies. The picture of the condo does not do it justice. What you see on the picture is exactly what you get, down to pictures on the wall. The view from the living/dining room area is breathtaking. The large patio doors and the tall ceilings gives you a view of the ocean that keeps you mesmerized. I found myself waking up at 5:30 in the morning to sit on the balcony to watch the surfers. If it wasn't for the family wanting to eat and hang out, I would have stayed on the balcony all day. The office staff is fantastic (especially Tatty - she's the best) and their response time for any issues or requests is quick and professional. The security staff is friendly and welcoming no matter how many times you come and go...you are always greeted with a smile. The beach area is steps away from the pool and the sunset over the mountains in the evening looks like a postcard. Our grown daughters and granddaughter had fun on their excursions (horseback riding and a crocodile tour). Our most favorite place to eat was Los Amigos (the red curry is awesome). It was so good, we went two days in a row. We had a rental car so we were able to drive around the country side at our leisure. I highly recommend Diamante del Sol if you're looking for a place with ocean views, direct beach access, luxury, and mountain views all in one place. I hope to go again one day but the memory of our trip will always be in my heart.
