“Peaceful and out of town”
Reviewed 11 May 2011

My Husband and I stayed at the Aparthotel Vista Pacifico for one night as part of a four week trip around Costa Rica. We arrived late afternoon looking for a room and were given quite a large cash discount for our one night stay. We were given an apartment over two floors, with a living area, kitchenette and bathroom downstairs and then a master bedroom and second bathroom upstairs. The hotel was very quiet and is very out of town, ideal if you want to experience the area without experiencing Jaco! The owners were very friendly and happy to provide lots of information on the area and places to visit and eat. They also stored our bags the following day so that we could go walking in the National Park without the worry of having our bags in our rental car. Breakfast was very nice and served outside, taking in the beautiful views from the hotel's hill-top location. The only issue we had was that none of the outside lighting (on either balconies) worked so we had to sit outside in the dark to enjoy an evening drink. We would certainly recommend unless you wanted to have a “true Jaco” experience because it is too far to walk into town.

We enjoyed our stay very much, with it on the edge of town on top of the hill, with great views, nice friendly helpful staff, clean spacious rooms, nice cool pool, good healthy breakfast. But if you want to party and have lots of night life (which we didn't), I recommend staying in town. The drive up the hill isn't one to make after you've been drinking.

Jan and Greg were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean as was the bathroom (although don't expect a large luxurious bathroom).

The place is peaceful and makes you want to relax and enjoy every minute that you are there. Jan was right when she told us that by leaving the windows open we would get a nice cooling breeze.

During our trip, we stayed in some places where we felt that everything should be locked up or that would be a target. Vista Pacifico is up on a hillside away from everything and felt like one of the safest places we stayed during our trip. That alone meant that we could relax and enjoy our surroundings.

I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

The Vista Pacifico is away from town, up on the hill, with breathtaking views. It is a beautiful hotel in a lovely setting, and Jan, our host, was giving us a one hour guidance what to do and what to see in Jaco. A lovely breakfast is served by the pool, with beautiful birds landing in nearby trees. The staff is meticulous in maintaining the rooms. We were staying over Christmas 2009 and also at New Year's eve, when Greg and Jan invited us to a nice evening with food, drinks and a view over Jaco with fireworks. Altogether we stayed for 3 wonderful weeks with surfing at the Jaco beech, taking pictures of all kinds of birds and traveled by a canopy zipline down a mountain nearby.
Many thanks to Greg and Jan from Christer with family!

My wife and I found this hotel on tripadvisor and took a shot on it and it blew every other place on our costa rica trip out of the water. The hosts, Jan and Greg make you feel like family at their breakfast table every morning . They we so memorable that the inside joke "It ain't no Jan & Greg" was born and used for all the other places we stayed at. (this term can also be used to slam any facility that has decent to lame hospitality, please spread like wild-fire). The room we stayed in was humongous and had a private tower! for the $ you can't even come close to the value you get. We felt like we had gone to Costa Rica and were staying in our aunt and uncle's place. You'll love it. See you soon hopefully you two.

On the last few days of our trip I had booked a hotel in Jaco with a "fancy mosaic sun in the pool" and was actually very disappointed when we arrived and even more so when we stayed one night. One quick phone call to Greg and we had a room immediately (we didn't have to wait until check in time!) Jan greeted us at the gate and I new we had made the right decision to change hotels. The atmosphere is phenomenal - such friendly fellow Canadians !! The views are beautiful. Our kids had a great time in the pool and watching the dogs play. The rooms are great. Two full bathrooms and a completely equipped kitchen. The wooden sliding patio doors that go out to a lovely deck face the ocean and Jaco and let in a beautiful breeze. Jan gave us a map of Jaco and sent us on our way to the best pizza and garlic bread we had (Rioasis)!! Thankyou Jan and Greg for a wonderful day and a half with you! That was the BEST cup of tea my entire trip!! Stay with Jan and Greg and you will feel right at home!
