Curt was the best host as usual, he picked us up from the airport, which a safe ride is priceless with little ones in costa rica. He went out of his way to take us to on all the good tours and is very knowledgeable about everything there. Thanks so much. We will be back!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were at El Encanto in february for two weeks.We loved our stay there,the condo was clean and the kitchen very well equipped with a lot of pots and pans.An important point for us because we loved cooking .Really enjoy the swimming pool ,small but very nice.The place is at walking distance of everything,large groceries stores,restaurants,shops and bars but far enough to be quiet.We really enjoy Jaco and the proximity of the park Carrara and Manuel Antonio.Taxi from the condo to Jaco is less than $2.00 and there is a very good service by city bus to go to the Herradura beach in 20 minutes for 50 cents Curt and Dinah are very friendly and a good source of information.We appréciate the picking and dropping at the airport. We felt safe and we were like at home in Jaco and at El Encanto.Thanks at both of you.We will tell friends and be back for sure.

Not worth the money

  • 1 of 5

Horrible location, dirty rooms, no towels, unsafe stove, no where to relax outdoors, dirty pool with no privacy from building around the property. There are much better places to stay in Jaco that are the same price or cheaper. The location that they boost as "walking distance to the beach" is very misleading...yes, you can walk to the beach...but you have to walk 15-20 minutes down a long, unshaded street that has no lights in the evening. Did not feel safe being outside our room on this street at night. We booked this place for 2 weeks, and left after 2 days...did not get a refund at all. Do not pay for this place upfront, you will end up spending a lot of money on a horrible mistake. But we could not stay any longer. Dirty bed sheets, only provided two towels for a family of four, the apartment smelled like mould, the shower walls were covered in grime, the stove was unsafe, the kitchen was not equipment with most of the things you would need to cook any meal (we didn't have a pot)....I can go on and on...and have pictures to prove the horrible state this place was in.

We ended up finding many places in Jaco, at the same price point that were soooo much better. Cleaner and with breakfast included. Stay somewhere else, do not book this place, you WILL be disappointed.

Owner's Response: (The problem really was) LaLa She brought her mother that was not feeling well and has not been out of her house in four years ever since her husband past away I really feel for them I have a member in my family with mental illness also. But you really can not expect to bring someone out far from there comfort of their home especially to a different country and expect them to feel safe I only know this because her husband came up to me the second night and told me what they where going through and said that his mother en law was driving them crazy and the where going to have to go home. LaLa at first booked one week in March then a week later she wanted two weeks she made her booking in early February I got $100 deposit check from her sent to my residence in Florida they paid me the rest when they arrived and seen the place. This is in the high season when you take it off the internet for weeks it's unlikely to get a full two weeks on a last Minuit booking He was OK with that night the next day she wanted her money back I told them if I can rent the place for the time they booked I would refund them for everyday I booked of their dates I put back on the internet that night she was not happy with that that. I know that is more than any other Person or hotel would do. They left sometime the third day and left a note that said to email her when I rent it and she would send me the keys then through her friend that was staying here in town they would give me the keys back. I never did get the keys back. Her husband assured me everything was all right with the apartment she was very mad at him for that I feel for him too. Sincerely Curt

Great for the price.

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I enjoyed our stay at El Encanto. Close enough to downtown Jaco, but far enough away. I have stayed at many places in and around Jaco and El Encanto is far a better bang for your buck. Plus Curt is really a cool and mello dude. Had a great time on the waterfall tour he runs. Rooms are comfortable with plenty of hot and water and cold a.c.

Loved our time there. Curt and Dinah are a delight. Curt very knowledgable about the area and the tours. Only drawback was the wifi was inadequate and often down.

Curt gives enthusiastic fun tours to the jungle and waterfalls.

I recommend staying here
