A group of 5 adults shared H5, a 3 bedroom condo on the top floor while in Jaco for a wedding. Our hosts, Stephanie and John were very helpful and helped return a piece of luggage lost on our flight with United. There were no bad rooms in the condo, each had a king size bed and was more than comfortable for a couple. One bedroom (the master) had an ensuite bathroom, while the other two shared a walk-through jack and jill style bathroom. There was lots of space for 3 ladies and 2 guys to get ready for the wedding :) The condo was very clean and well maintained. The elevator to our condo was out of service for 3 days of our vacation which wasn't a big problem, but it was a big effort to walk up 5 flights of stairs.
We all enjoyed spending time on the two balconies. The downstairs balcony was perfect to enjoy coffee and fruit (fresh from the market, as recommended by Stephanie) for breakfast, while the upper one was amazing for a glass of wine while watching the sunset. The pool area was very clean and well maintained. The condo is approximately 10 minutes walking from the shops and stores in town. Cabs are cheap and easy to get in Jaco if you dont want to walk from the far side of town.
The only downside was the rooster who lived next door and he couldn't tell time, and was crowing from 5 am until 9. Most of us were up at 5 am and varying success at getting back to sleep.
Overall we all enjoyed our vacation very much!!
