About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Full bath, 1 Half bath

Very Modern, new 3 BR/3.5 BA oceanfront condo with full panoramic ocean views. It has 3 separate balconies, one off each bedroom. The wraparound main balcony is directly facing the sunset and the ocean. You could literally hit a golf ball into the ocean from the balcony. Free Wireless Wifi, of course.

The furnishing are all very high-end with white leather couches, granite countertops, top of the line appliances, all facing the ocean in an all glass living room. The walls making up the entire corner of the living room/dining room are glass with 4 huge glass sliding doors that open to the ocean.

Pool is right outside of the condo, balcony is above it, waterfall, etc and you walk from it directly on to the beach, under the palm tree grove.

In the evenings always with a sunset, we have dinner outside, watching surfers with a glass of wine on the balcony. We love it down there. You will too.

Convinent and Safe: The property is right on the beach...overlooking the ocean and only one block from the main street in central all of the resturants, shops, and activites are right in walking distance.

The onsite management is there everyday and the security guards are there 24/7.

The management can help arrange any number of activites in the area with ease.

About Terrell Joseph

My wife and I live in Vail, CO and have two small children. We both work at the hospital there and love to take the kids to Costa Rica to get away from the snowy mountains. The unit is very easy with little people as the pool and beach are right there. You can walk to all the restaurants, shopping, activities, etc.

Terrell Joseph purchased this condo in 2010

Why Terrell Joseph chose Puntarenas

We have been to Costa Rica 8-10 times and it is a safe, kind country. The population is educated and we find the country interesting and fun. Very little crime, especially against visiting Americans, as we indirectly protect them; they have no military and we have many Marine bases there. The country looks like Hawaii without all the 'rules' of the US and is much less expensive and FAR more interesting. It is by no means third world anymore.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved how close the condo was to the ocean!...My mother would watch me surf from the balcony and then we could jump right in the pool. The pool was right on the beach also and had waterfalls!

Great place/great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall, a great experience in Jaco at the Diamante del Sol..The view is spectacular, the location is as close to perfect as you can get and the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating as we planned our trip... Only negatives (and these are very minor in comparison to the overall experience) are the air conditioning ( which never seemed to be able to keep up with the heat), and some minor issues with parking due to building renovations and some key confusion upon our arrival ( we assumed the Daystar office was open till 10 pm and it was not open at 5:30pm when we arrived and security seemed unaware of the location of our keys)... It all worked out fine in the end.

We absolutely loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very spacious and the floor to celing windows make the incredible view a part of your living space. Everything is as advertised. We didn't want to leave. Great location - on the beach and a block from town. We didn't have to rent a car although we did for a couple of days to visit some neighbouring towns and fantastic beaches. We were in the ocean and the pool everyday and both were warm and clean. The nightly sunsets were amazing! The staff at the management company were wonderful and we booked all of our excursions and airport shuttles with them. Make sure you go on the cruise to tortuga island. It was an unforgetable day. Our best vacation ever. Thank you!

Stunning condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just as described - beautiful! We loved that each bedroom has its own bathroom and how spread out the condo feels! The kitchen is stocked with all the gadgets you will need. The pool area was wonderful. We travelled with two kids- one being 4. He loved the shallow area where he could sit and play. We enjoyed seeing the iguanas around the pool as well! The security guards added an extra level of security; they were not only at the front entrance but also by the pool to ensure only guests were coming in from the beach.

Our only "issue" was the AC. We never seemed to get on top of the heat in the condo. We had the AC turned down as low as it would allow and still struggled to feel cool. Our son got a heat rash the first night sleeping even though we left it on in his room all night with only the sheet on the bed. The warmth by no means ruined our stay; we would stay here again if we are ever in Jacó.

somewhat disappointed

  • 3 of 5

The booking process was uneventful.

The picture on the website looks better. The ocean view was blocked partly by the North tower. The wifi didn't work in the third bedroom at all. The sofa was quite worn and no longer looking creamy white as in the picture, more like grey cream.

We booked the place mainly for the ocean view. There are two buildings. We stayed in the south building. The ocean view towards the north of this building is completely blocked by the north building. There is only the ocean view looking towards south. The sunset is completely blocked.

We asked the desk if we could get the wifi to work in the third bedroom. He said no. But one day the desk asked us to let a repair man check our wifi for some other problem. I took the opportunity to ask the repair man if he could make the wifi work in the third bedroom. He said that we needed a repeater or a hotspot. He told me that he had just given the last repeater away. We were disappointed that when we complained to Daystar immediately when we realized that the wifi didn't work in the last bedroom, they didn't offer to set up a repeater for us.

We had to get someone to come out to reset the security box. The pins were locked in the closed position. I was told by Daystar to try a code which didn't work. I would be shocked if it worked, which would mean anyone could open the locked security box with a code. They send a repaid man which took about an hour. The repair man came in and tried different codes, which also didn't work. He left and came back again and continue to try codes blindly. I talked to the desk asking them to send the repair man away since we were on holiday, we didn't want to waste time waiting for the repair man to fix the security box. By now, we had spend almost 2 hours waiting for that to be fixed. He eventually took out a screwdriver and took the battery out and reset the lock that took less than a minute. We couldn't understand why he didn't do that in the first place or the desk didn't just come out with the screwdriver, which would take less than 15 minutes.

The balcony was nice, but the furniture was quite underwhelming. There are three good size balconies. The first has a set of rattan love seat with two arm chair and a glass top coffee table. The second and the third each has one single chair.

Owner's Response: Not sure which way they were looking. Have been there 20 times, never had the sunset blocked. Ever. Most don't come all the way to Costa Rica to sit in a 3rd bedroom and fiddle on the internet. The internet works fine in the condo. Never had a renter like this. Some can't be pleased.

Fabulous luxury

  • 5 of 5

We'd come from 7 days on the Caribbean side (nice house but in the jungle and a little roughing it) and from the moment we walked in, we were floored. First, everything in the home gives a luxurious, solid feel. The floors are marble and the kitchen is full-featured with dishwasher, fridge with ice-maker, coffee maker, etc. Would have been nice to have a few sundries like sugar, salt and coffee filters, but the grocery store down in the plaza across the street had everything (except dishwashing detergent . . . even the Maxi-pali didn't have that! I thought there was only 1 dishwashing tablet in the condo when we got there but we found a second one as we were cleaning up to check out.)

The beds in the bedrooms are all comfortable. We didn't need to use the air conditioners much . . . just 25 degrees to get some circulation going and we left it on 30 degrees in the living room, which dehumidified the room and any colder would have been too cold. Speaking of the living room. Wow. Words really don't describe the view. The wrap-around floor to ceiling windows/doors give a 180 degree view of Jaco beach and the ocean. Stunning and we never got tired of sitting on the balcony in the mornings and taking it all in.

The security guys were all friendly and the pools were clean and were large with an innovative design. All in all this condo was nicer than I expected and I still find myself going back and viewing photos. A magical stay.
