I want to start by saying that we personally know the owners of the condo that we rented in Bahia Encantada so I do not want that to alter my review. We enjoyed our stay very much. The condo was equipped with all of the amenities needed to make our stay comfortable and accommodating. The overall building/complex did have a...

Wonderful accommodations. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The pools are well maintained and very clean. There is a bar next door that serves an excellent mojito and good food. There is a small market just a few yards outside the gate but some grasp of the language is almost required. Next to the market is a soda called...

I travel to Costa Rica several times a year, but this was my first experience with Bahia Encantada specifically Unit 3 E. During our four night stay we had several issues. Some were taken care of by "Lost Beach" the rental agent and some were not. The beds in the unit are some of the worst I have ever slept...

B,C,D,K,J,I units have multiple balconies facing the pool courtyard with side view to the beach. E,F,G...

My first time in Costa Rica and loved staying here. Our condo was right on the ocean and the view was absolutely beautiful. The security was wonderful and we always felt safe. They were so helpful and kind, I truly did not want to leave and I look forward to the day I can return. Pura Vida is definitely true!!

We have had our unit for two weeks & have been very happy with our two bedroom two bath condo. We were able to get the beachfront unit, overlooking the gorgeous pool. The unit is fully furnished, including a washer & dryer, which is really great to have with an extended vacation. The beach is very long & easily accessed,...

We rented a condo for 10 days, our unit L2 was right by the beach with an amazing view of the sunset every night. Bahia Encantada is well maintained with very friendly staff and the pools are always clean. I think Bahia Encantada is the best in Jaco, it is closest to the beach and within walking distance from the...
