Aparthotel Vista Pacifico
Ranked #9 of 40 Hotels in Jaco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2009

We have been travelling in Costa Rica for the past 3 weeks and have stayed in 6 different hotels....the Vista Pacifico was by far the best.

It's in a great location in the hills overlooking Jaco.The rooms are spotlessly clean and there is a really nice pool area to chill out.

However, the best thing about the hotel is the owners Jan and Greg, They were endlessly helpful recommending places to eat and things to do in the area. They also went the "extra mile" to help us plan our travels through Costa Rica.

My friend booked our room at the Vista Pacifico, and I couldn't have been happier with our stay! Jan and Greg were friendly and welcoming from the get-go, providing us with information on where to shop for food to stock our kitchenette. Every morning we ate breakfast in the rancho with the other guests (it was the low season, but Jan and Greg still provided juice, coffee, delicious fresh fruit and pastries), and Jan and Greg helped us plan our day, giving us tips on where to park, which restaurants and beaches to check out, etc. They also provided directions and maps to every place we planned to visit. We spent our last full day in Costa Rica lounging by the Vista Pacifico's pool, because my friend and I couldn't imagine staying at this beautiful hotel and not enjoying its amenities while we had the chance! The other guests were very friendly, and I think the environment Jan and Greg provided encouraged a lot of positive interaction among their guests. I would absolutely stay at Vista Pacifico again.

The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are bright and clean. We stayed in a 2 story, one bedroom and the rooms have a view of Jaco City. The grounds are beautifully kept and the owners, Jan and Greg are beyond friendly and helpful! This was our first night in Costa Rica and wee stayed in many places, some OK and some not so great. As hotels go in this country this place is fantastic! Next time I hope to spend at least a week there and get one of the rooms with the towers! Highly recommend this place!

Stayed at the V.P. for four nights with a friend for a hastily-assembled cheap vacation. We loved the hotel.

Location was great, up on a hill overlooking the mountains and ocean. Nice and quiet. Convenient to the businesses in Jaco, but set off from the all-night party noise, which is a plus.

Our room was well-equipped and felt homey. The other guests were fun to hang around with, and the owners are just too nice. They went out of their way to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves and to offer recommendations for things to do, whether it be finding a secluded beach to fall asleep on or full-day tours if you wanted that kind of thing.

Definitely a deal, especially in the off season. The V.P. is the kind of place where I'd take anyone, from my best friend to my girlfriend to my grandmother.

It's a great place to relax (the pool is especially awesome), close enough to civilization but quiet and secluded enough to forget about home.

We loved this little retreat in the mountains! We had a great time and loved being above the town with the mountain breezes. The owners Jan and Greg were so helpful and fun. It is the best hotel in Jaco. We will for sure recommend the Vista Pacifico.
