“Serenity on a Hilltop”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

Members of our clan returned recently from a week at VistaPacifico. What a lovely situation: on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, catching the breezes and offering splendid views in all directions. The hotel was sparkly clean; the hosts offered an above-and-beyond ethos of service. Staff were personable. I can't say enough good things... I recommend it heartily.

Staying at Vista Pacifico was by far one of the best accommodation choices of our trip. From the moment we were greeted so enthusiastically by Juliana and James, the management duo of the hilltop residence, we were treated more like friends than guests at a hotel. Our room was spacious, bright, clean & even had a door that opened right into the jungle! Day trips to the town of Jaco wound down very nicely with homecooked meals in the kitchenette (and on the BBQ) & late-night dips in the pool. To top it all off, Juliana & James had excellent advice to offer on local eateries, hiking trails, and different tours in the area. We simply cannot emphasize how wonderful a place Vista Pacifico is, and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone wanting to experience Jaco in comfort & a super friendly environment.

After seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to go with Apatthotel Pacifico.

They made the trip perfect. Jan and Greg are absolute amazing hosts.

Our room was upgraded due to it being the low season. We got room 1. It was a one bedroom, with a kitchen and it was beautiful.

The room was clean with an amazing view. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pots and pans. The bed was a little tough but nothing that was impede a good nights sleep. The room did not have air conditioning. It did not need it. The breeze was great and they provided us with a fan just in case. We didn't use it.

The hosts helped us plan one of the most amazing vacations I have ever had. They have a book with all the activities and Jan is incredibly knowledgeable. She helped us plan and plan and plan (we changed our mind a few times). Kept up with our schedules and with all the changes we kept making. If you go there... When you go there make sure to surf with Ernie. If you get the opportunity go see the turtle hatchary.

The property itself is kinda on a hill outside of downtown. Which makes it at the perfect soft to be away yet still in the middle of everything. The pool is smaller but perfect for the property.

Overall, it was just incredible. Thank you to them for everything.

Greg and Jan have officially handed down the reigns of this amazing property to Jan´s daughter Julianne and her fiance James. These two know they have big shoes to fill and in my opinion they have done just that. The most amazing part of this new management team is that it is more than obvious that they are concerned way more about the guest´s experience over just making a buck. These two have gone out of their way to make the stay I had with my girlfriend the most amazing hotel experience of my life. This unbelieveable service coupled with the fact that the hotel itself is less expensive than most in Jaco makes it in my opinion the only place anyone should stay. Do yourself a favor, book this place early so you don´t miss out. 7% discount for paying in cash, and if you´re looking for a longer term rental the Casita is amazing.

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing!!!

Wonderful views, clean rooms that are light and bright, welcoming and friendly staff. We wished we could have stayed longer. The breakfast was great and we had the pleasure of eating on the deck with toucans visiting us in the trees. They offer a gas bbq so we purchased some marinated steak from the local market and had a nice dinner by the pool. Our family will return again some day!

Only spent two nights, but the hotel is fairly new, nicely laid out, has spectacular hillside view, with lush gardens, nice small pool. I want to go back and just cocoon there for a week to read, relax, and chill with my wife. Breeze gently rolls from one side of the hill through the rooms and out the other side. Only thing they need is better coffee and a more substantial (healthier) breakfast. C'mon this is coffee country. Just a short drive into Jaco where there's plenty of restaurants and cafes. Owners are Canadian and live on the property. Nice folks.

As everyone else has said this place is great. My wife and I aren't really into the party scene anymore so being a 5 or 10 min drive from town was perfect. The view is great and of course Jan and Greg a super warm and accommodating. How cool that they get to hang out, run their hotel, and meet all these awesome people from around the world! Thanks a lot, we had a great time
