We recently stayed at the Paloma Blanca for a month, and though we got off to a rough start (the condo we were originally scheduled to stay in - I1 - wasn't what we expected because the condo owner let the unit fall into disrepair), Lost Beach and their staff, headed by Lupe, saved the day. They fixed the situation...

I can't say enough good things about Jaco, Costa Rica & La Paloma Blanca. The resort felt so private and intimate, as if we had the place to ourselves. The grounds were so well maintained and kept very safe as guards were posted at the front and back gates 24/7. Not that it was even needed as Jaco is such...

You can't come to Costa Rica and not stay at La Paloma Blanca! From the amazing sunrises to the amazing sunsets. La Paloma Blanca is located right on the beach in the south of Jaco just steps from the beaten path. Close enough to the action but far enough away to feel the true Pura Vida Costa Rica has to...

We just returned from our second year at La Paloma Blanca and we are already counting down the days until our next visit. The condo units are clean and spacious and very well maintained. They are all steps from your choice of pools and the beach. The balcony is just perfect for watching the sunrise while drinking your morning coffee...

This condo was amazing. It was seconds walk to the beach! We were here for the 4th of July and a friends birthday. In total, four of us stayed in a three bedroom condo on the first floor with two of their four pools directly in front of our balcony. The staff was amazing, in particular Lupe and Mario. They...

We had a great stay at La Paloma Blanca! Seriously was an amazing experience and would not have wanted to stay anywhere else in Jaco beach. I have traveled around the world and this place ranks top in my list. My friend and I stayed in A3 which was a beach house on the water with a private roof top....

We had a great stay at Paloma Blanca! Some friends of ours own an apartment in the Paloma Blanca complex and it was really great! Their apartment had 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, one fully equipped kitchen, living room and 2 balconies. Paloma Blanca is right on the beach and it also has 3 adult pools and 1 kids pool....

The condo was clean and spacious. I really appreciated having two bathrooms for my guests and myself to use. It came in very handy when having to shower and get ready after a day at the beach. And WOW - the location was absolutely perfect! Walking out to the beach and hear the waves crashing each morning was a great...

We moved to Jaco a couple of months ago and booked a condo in La Paloma Blanca temporarily while we looked for a more permanent home. This place is so wonderful that we are still here and have made this our home. There was just no better place in town. The condos are very clean and well stocked. The environment...

the place is awesome, clean and quiet. You can relax in the swiming pool (actually there are 4 of them) and a fews yards further you are on the beach. Go furher a few yards and you are surfing (well if you know how to do it, otherwise there is a surf school just in front of the Paloma Blanca)...
