- Newly upgraded

- 1 bedroom, 1 bath

- One of the few units with a fully equipped kitchen!

- Fast Wifi - we have our own private connection, plus the complex itself has a connection. So if you need internet - you've got a back up!

There are several restaurants within very close walking distance like Hotel 9, Morgans Cove and The Point Bar & Restaurant. And its a beautiful 10 min walk along the beach into town.

There's no question this is one of the BEST values in Jaco. I will be happy to assist you in booking your accommodation and suggesting options for air transportation, booking tours, etc. I can also give you a list of restaurants and fun things to do. No need to rent a surf board one will be provided for you!

Please note to accommodate 4 people, 2 would sleep on the same bed in the room and 2 on futon. The place is not massive, but the location couldn't be better for enjoying the beach. Book it while you still can.

Location was good

  • 2 of 5

Quiet complex in very close proximity to the beach. Grounds and pool were well maintained. I wish I could say more positive things about it, but unfortunately I can't.The condo itself was sub par. The overall cleanliness was not good. It looked like it had had a quick once over, but the broom, mop, etc were left in a dirty corner between the refrigerator and kitchen cabinets. Towels, sheets and other items were tossed in the bedroom cabinet in such disarray that I wasn't sure if they had been washed prior to our arrival and since none of it smelled fresh, the smell test was useless. One of the cabinet doors above the sink had a hinge loose and I thought it was going to completely fall off and hit me. The shower head was very wide, but so clogged by deposits that it barely trickled out. I had to remove it altogether to wet my hair enough to shampoo and rinse. The a/c worked well in the living space, but the one in the bedroom was useless for anything more than noise. Hopefully this review will alert the property owner or manager to address these issues and thus improve their next customer's experience.

Owner's Response: Hi, We're sorry your experience was not a 5 star experience as that is what we strive for. Unfortunately our regular housekeeper was out sick the day of your check in so we had to ask help from someone else, had we known about any of the issues you mentioned we would have sent someone immediately to take care of them. As you can see from our previous reviews and ones that I'm sure will come after we do take care to ensure our clients are always happy and stisfied with their stay. We hope that if you come back this way you will give us another chance - we'd even like to offer you a free night stay (based on availability) so you can give us a chance to show you that things can and will be better next time.

What we expected

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in Jaco in October 2015. The condo complex was quiet, had basic kitchen needs, isn't terribly far from the grocery store for walking, and the laundry was easy to deal with. The surf camp keeps the beach in front of the condo clean and there is a tiki bar just down the beach. The condo is quite a ways for walking to access any night scene for those inclined, but we weren't so it was perfect. The owner was easy to communicate with and the wifi was good. There is a great hiking trail up to the colosseum looking structures on the hillside if you walk up the roads towards it (or up the beach and across the highway).

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute decision to say in Jaco on our drive. The place was awesome. Location can't be beat. Right on the beach and the pool was very nice as well. Would definitely stay again, wished we could have stayed longer!

Right on the beach

  • 3 of 5

The location is great, right on the beach. The Pool is Great, it's a true lap pool length which makes it nice to keep up with my swiming exercise. The down side is the maintenance guy just has to clean the pool every time I chose to use it, even though he has more than enough other things to do. The manager of the condo Ana is wonderful and very helpful. Unfortunantely not everything worked so well. First the tolet broke the first night and ran water all over the bath room floor, which distrupted our sleep and caused us to have to stick around half the day untill everything got fixed and cleaned up. The internet connection was week and slow or not working at all and the cell phone provided for local calls was none functional, which wasn't a big deal but still one more thing less than advertised. I would have liked to given a high rating but just to many things that just did't make the over all experience excellent.

Beautiful...location, location, location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Steps to the pool, a few more to the beach. What more could you ask for? Clean, secure, friendly neighbours but not too much so. James was so helpful in providing details regarding do's and don'ts prior to our arrival. Ana ensured we settled in well and wanted for nothing. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
