Aparthotel Vista Pacifico
Ranked #10 of 41 Hotels in Jaco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 February 2010

You just cannot go wrong staying at Vista Pacifico. Jan and Greg are absolutely the perfect couple to run a B&B/hotel of this sort. My wife and I are seasoned travelers for business and pleasure. Believe me, if you go to Jaco, stay at Vista Pacifico! While it is a couple of miles into town, cabs are readily available and affordable. The views are spectacular. The buildings and property are well kept and charming in every way....truly a home away from home. The breakfasts are simple, but more than adequate to get your day started. My wife and I went fishing while in Jaco. Jan and Greg allowed us to grill our fish on the BBQ on property. They allowed us to invite the other couple on our charter over. They helped us organize a small potluck with other guests on property, uncorked a bottle of wine....or two...or three. We had such a great evening.....even kept Greg up past his bedtime! They arranged for our transfer from the airport in San Jose. What more can I say, stay at Vista Pacifico. We stayed there for one week. We were able to get free internet access at the dining area. We stayed in unit 8 which has a private balcony with a beautiful view, but no ocean view. We enjoyed the room.

It is hard to know where to begin but the above line is a start. This was the fifth trip to Costa Rica (in the last two years) for my wife & I. We have stayed in several different areas in several different types of accommodations. This was absolutely the best combination of location, comfort, quietness, and hospitality. The owners, Jan & Greg, have been most successful in creating a comfortable, clean, & charming place to stay. The breakfast was wonderful. The pool & surrounding tropical flora were hard to leave even for a minute. The night-time & day-time views overlooking Jaco & the Pacific from 80 meters up were spectacular & the elevation virtually eliminates any noise (except for the birds, of course). The dynamics of Jaco were a blast - lots of choices in restaurants, a beautiful long uncrowded beach with great people watching, beautiful surfing, fishing, etc. We did the zip line canopy ride in nearby Playa Hermosa & it was a serious (but safe) rush. This place & this location at this price can't be beat. Glenn & Teri - Florida

My boyfriend and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel and we can't wait to go back already! The owners are the loveliest couple we had the pleasure of meeting during our entire stay in Costa Rica. The view is breathtaking, the rooms are clean, the pool area is a great place to relax with wonderful views and the breakfast has great selection...all at an incredible price. The owners booked a great snorkeling excursion for us while keeping our budget in mind as well as referred us to a wonderful car rental company in San Jose. It truly was like staying with family and we are so thankful to have found it. Don't stay anywhere else in the Jaco area...this is the gem!

Jan and Greg are really helpful and take the time to make the stay in Jaco a great one. The rooms are clean and have more amenities than most including some dishes and a microwave. The hotel is a little ways away from the town so if you don't have a car, the taxi rides are about $3 one way. The pool is clean and the lounging chairs are comfortable.

Great stay!

We had a perfectly delightful stay at the Vista Pacifico. Our room was immaculate with a spectacular view of the coast and the vistas of the mountains. The kitchenette was equipt for long term stays. Our hosts were on top of everything and great fun to just share conversation. Although we had to be out early for a golf tee time, breakfast was being prepared and it looked wonderful. I would stay here again preferring the Vista Pacifico to almost anything else around the area. A very good value.

A beautiful hotel that gave my wife and me the most relaxing stay we have had in years. Jan and Greg provide an atmosphere of friendship and every morning an evening is an opportunity to meet with fellow guests to discuss the day's travels. This hotel is small enough to get to know your neighbours and large enough to get away from those whose company you don't desire. Very clean and cozy rooms and a comfortable pool and lounge area. I highly recommend this hotel.
