Went here with our 3 children, location is perfect. It is close to town, and right on the beach. There were several kids for my children to play with in the pool. Beautifully maintained; they are currently working on updating some of the outside areas. Love the location!

I have stayed at Bahia Encantada twice so far in 2016 and I'm completely sold on this place. The location is great, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Jaco, but close enough to a convenience store, soda (aka cheap locals cafe), beach bar, and a 2 minute walk from Crocs casino. The rooms are spacious...

Our family stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom suite. We had a wonderful stay. There were a few concerns, however. We came with our 2 year old son and the balconies were not safe for small children. A child could easily fall through the railings. Also, the sliding glass doors to the balconies didn't lock, so we had to...

We stayed in L1 for a week and were very disappointed. Pros: great location on ground floor near the pool and looking at the beach. Cons: it was so dirty and rundown. There were food splatters on the walls, fingerprints and dirt everywhere. The towels were dingy, stained and thread bare. The wicker patio furniture was falling apart. We had...

Hi Terri. We apologize about your experience in L1 at BE. This condo is owed by an individual. We have reported your comments to him and he is in the process of addressing them and getting his condo to the basic standards. We hope that we can invite you back to the property as this isn't reflection of all the...

We rented a 2 bedroom condo on the ground floor stepd from both of the larger pools.

Wonderful Beach Front Location. Centrally located near Jaco town center, this stunning beach front complex houses some amazing condos. Great amenities, including a stunning pool and beach front views. You definitely get your value at this location.

The hotel is on the North end of Jaco and we rented the apartment directly form one of the owners. The air conditioning worked really well but it would not turn off.

The condo building is terrific with wonderful pools. Our phone was not working for long periods.

Hi Gregor. We apologize for the inconvenience with the phones we where in the process of changing internet providers and phone service as well. This has all been resolved. As for Claritas we are fighting this problem every week with the local authorities as it is against the law to play music past 10pm in a residential area. Thank you...
