Great Beachfront Location!

  • 5 of 5

I started looking staying in Jaco as a central location between the activities we planned to do from Puntarenas and Manuel Antonio. I decided on trying to secure a condo at The Palms to be able to use the amenitities at Croc's Resort. I selected this Beachfront condo as it presented as clean, up-to-date and nicely decorated. I was very pleased with my choice as it delivered on all counts! Donna answered all of my questions during the booking process. The property managent company was terrific - had lots of recommendations and was very accommodating with our later Sunday arrival (Thank You, Vivian)! The condo itself was much more spacious than I had imagined - very spacious for my family of four. It was very clean, well-provisioned and the sunset views from the balcony are amazing. My very favorite "perk" was listening to the waves crash in the evening, such a soothing experience! I should mention that we found wifi in this part of the country (not condo-specific) to be quite frustrating at times having just come from the Guanacaste part of the county where it worked 100% of the time. I mention this only to suggest coming with info you might need saved on your device (printed) or be prepared to use your data.If If I find myself planning a stay in the Jaco area again I would certainly look to stay at this property. I would recommend it as a good value for your money and a very suitable choice for families!

Overall Good

  • 4 of 5

There is a man selling food on his bicycle every morning at 5 a.m. so if you are looking to sleep in, forget about it. He will honk his horn repeatedly for the next 2 hours.

That was the largest complaint that we had with the place.

Normal wear and tear items were noted and some were repaired immediately by a very attentive property management staff. Other items such as soap trays and tooth brush holders that were falling out of the wall were left un-repaired however.

Great staff, good location!

  • 5 of 5

The staff very friendly and willing to help! Condo was step up perfectly for 2 couples and a toddler. Loved the little pool for my kid and loved being able to use the crocks casino pools next door. Parking was was very limited! (6 spots for a 10 story, 4 per floor complex) I would recommend a rental car if coming during a busy tourists time.

Hidden Gem of Jaco

  • 5 of 5

I have lived in CR for 6 years, and stayed in Jaco several times. This place takes the cake. Beautiful spacious condo overlooking the pool and beach. The best part is you can have a relaxed pool experience or the resort feel in only a few steps. Crocs casino is seriously 10 steps away. They have a huge pool, great service and prices. We spent Christmas here with the family. The adults and kids had everything and more. The best place in Jaco for sure, can 't say enough good things about this place.

Great memories of Jaco

  • 4 of 5

Good location. Right next to new Croc's Casino and Resort. Loved that The Palms residents have access to their amenities. New restaurants. Ate at pool restaurant and thought the food was very good. The condo was very clean, and large. Because we are in often, we found kitchen was quite basic. Loved the sunsets that we were able to watch from balcony. Staff were extremely helpful. The owner was also excellent to deal with. Great memories.

spacious apratment with great views

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the apartment. It is very spacious with a large balcony, nicely and comfortably furnished, well-equipped large kitchen. The apartment offers a great view of the ocean. The beach is right in front of the building. Quiet area.

Problematic was the lack of parking space on building property. Most of the time we had to park on the street. Given the large building the pool is tiny and a disappointment, it is not suitable for swimming, there were only 5 sunbeds available at the pool area, not nearly enough for the many people and were occupied early in the morning most of the time. It would be nice to have at least 2 sunbeds on the balcony; this would be no luxury in view of the very high rental price.

The people of the management company were very helpful.

Jaco has a large and wide sandy beach, which we enjoyed a lot for walking. Swimming in the ocean is difficult because of the high surf. More suitable for swimming in the ocean (and for smaller kids) is for example the public beach at the entrance of the Manuel Antonio National Park or in the park itself (very crowded) but this is 1,5 h away.

Owner's Response: Sorry that the Crocs pool with additional seating was not available during your stay. there are additional chairs at our own pool. We have added a sofa on our own balcony as well as beach chairs and an umbrella for those who would like to enjoy the beach. Hermosa Beach, just 10 minutes away is a prime surfing beach too. Great contests on the weekends at 4 pm.
