“Home away from home!”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

My fiance and I returned here in November and had another fantastic stay. The magic of the Costa Rican "Pura Vida" lifestyle reigns supreme at this little slice of paradise. Set atop a hill with a lovely breeze away from the bustle of town (but centrally located so that any activity is within reach), the Vista Pacifico has become one of my favorite places in the world. Juliana and James are gracious hosts who truly care about the well-being of their guests. They are constantly working to improve the hotel (although I think that it's perfect the way it is!), and all that they do is especially impressive since they have a (beautiful!) one-year-old son. I highly recommend this lovely locale for anyone looking for a respite from the rush of modern life. Take a break, get to Costa Rica, check out the Vista Pacifico, and breathe deeply. You'll never want to leave!

Room Tip: We stayed in #4 this time, which was bright and spacious!

We stayed at Vista Pacifico this last week, seven of us in total, 3 adults and, 4 kids. We had rooms 3 and 4. Super clean, comfortable all the amenities required. As previous guests have commented it is a beautiful spot. The hosts are very friendly and chilled. We had a wonderful experience at Vista Pacifico - And we are already planning our next trip.

Just returned from another wonderful two weeks at Vista Pacifico, Jaco. Loved cooking in my apartment/room, the friendly atmosphere, the amazing view and, of course, the fabulous weather.
Can't think of a more comfortable place to be in the sun. Also enjoyed Jaco's incredible beaches and wonderful restaurants and shops. Thank you again. I will be back. And, hey, warm empanadas are delivered to the gate by a friendly neighborhood vendor. Who could ask for more ?

Room Tip: Rooms range from rather typical hotel room to a complete apartment with terrace and multiple floors...

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Costa Rica and the stay at Vista Pacifico was one of the many highlights, James and Juliana are wonderful hosts and really went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. They are friendly, down to earth and extremely knowledgeable of the many activities and places in and around the area. The pool is a nice respite at the end of a long day and the provided breakfast hits the spot with some nice treats as well as healthy choices for all types. The best aspect of AVP is the peace and quiet brought by the surrounding areas. It's far enough outside of Jaco to get away from all of the noise and hustle and bustle, but also close enough for a nice dinner via a 5 minute ($4) taxi ride. Stay here for a real piece of Costa Rica's Pura Vida.

We had a very special birthday party at this delightful, charming hotel in early November. The staff and accommodations were exceptional! The property is tranquil, well maintained and the gardens and pool are perfect for catching up on the New Yorker articles you never get to finish, with and a nice Gin & Tonic. The location is safe and quiet with spectacular views of the ocean and the valley. Bonus = there is a tucan who frequently visits.
Our hosts, Juliana and James, are relaxed, charming and unobtrusively attentive. They make you feel so welcome, and thoughtfully stocked the basics and wine for our arrival (just fill out the form on the website www.vistapacifico.com).
This visit was my second, and most certainly, not my last. One of Costa Rica's gems!

My 2 sisters and I stayed here for one week, Dec. 7th to 14th. We loved every minute of it. This little hotel is quiet and relaxing. Good for the soul if you lead a hectic paced life. Our units 6 & 7 were perfect. Juliana and James are the perfect hosts. From shopping for us before we arrived, arranging our car rental, organizing and reserving trips and restaurants for us, couldn't have asked for more. This hotel sits on top of hill and overlooks the town of Jaco. Jaco beach is great to walk on during the morning when it's quieter. Watching the surfers during the day was great fun too. Everything Julianna recommended for us was perfect. We even got brave enough to try zip lining. We can hardly wait to go back again some time in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for unit 7 as it has a great tower you can climb up to and have a great view of the area.

During our 3 weeks trip to Costa Rica, we spent 2 nights at Vista Pacifico. You can find the Vista Pacifico on a hill site a little outside town center of Jaco. So having your own rental car is very practical. The view from our balcony was absolutely superb. The hospitality of the owners was impeccable. They helped us a lot and we got directions to our next B&B in Manuel Antonio. They even catched a very big spider in our room which was bright, clean, cool and quiet at night. The grounds are very well maintained, and the pool provides a great in-house spot to socialize and take in some sun and a cool swim. The breakfast was good. All that said, it was one of the best hotels where we spend some nights in Costa Rica.
