With 4 pools(including swim-up no service bar pool..BYOB) We were actually right beside the beach(condo L1), directly in front of the main pool.

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...

Went here with our 3 children, location is perfect. It is close to town, and right on the beach. There were several kids for my children to play with in the pool. Beautifully maintained; they are currently working on updating some of the outside areas. Love the location!

I have stayed at Bahia Encantada twice so far in 2016 and I'm completely sold on this place. The location is great, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Jaco, but close enough to a convenience store, soda (aka cheap locals cafe), beach bar, and a 2 minute walk from Crocs casino. The rooms are spacious...

Our family stayed in a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom suite. We had a wonderful stay. There were a few concerns, however. We came with our 2 year old son and the balconies were not safe for small children. A child could easily fall through the railings. Also, the sliding glass doors to the balconies didn't lock, so we had to...
