    a guest from Surrey, BC recommends this vacation rental

    Great property. Loved the roof top terrace. Awesome location. The directions were on point , easy to find. The condo was clean and had everything you would need. The boogie boards in the closet were a bonus ! Along with the coolers and beach towels. We had many fun days on the beach surfing, boogie boarding and playing football. Nice sand beach with literally no rocks. We had quite a few meals at the far south end of the beach 'club del mar'. In town we had a fantastic meal at 'Wishbone'. Which also had live music. I would definitely recommend Mar arena. I look forward coming back to Jaco Beach again next year.

    Robbin R G from Taylors, SC recommends this vacation rental

    This unit was perfect for a little beach getaway. We could walk to the beach, several bars and restaurants and we had a great balcony to ourselves with a great view of the pool and the ocean. The AC worked great, the beds were comfortable and Gabriel was very accommodating. We arrived by shuttle from San Jose and he took us to our unit. Our last day he helped us set up a hike at the nearby waterfalls. It felt like being at the beach back in the 50's. I would definitely stay again.

    Overall we had a wonderful experience staying here and Gabriel was extremely helpful throughout our trip! The condo was clean and cool, with a beautiful view of the ocean and the night sky from our spacious patio. The beach was easily accessible and the walk into town was a slightly lengthy but enjoyable stroll. We walked into town to buy groceries the first morning and then cooked most of our meals in the condo which was very convenient. Judging by our walk on the beach, it did seem like we were on the best part/least rocky area. Pura Vida!

    Cindy R from Edina, MN recommends this vacation rental

    As this was our first trip to Costa Rica (my husband and I, with our 3 teenage sons) we were not familiar with the area and were not sure where to stay when it came time to making a reservation. We could not have been happier with everything about our stay at Mar Arena #32!
    -the location was ideal, away from the busyness of Jaco
    -the setting was exactly what we were looking for, with a very nice pool area and the beach right outside the complex
    -the complex was safe and secure
    -the pool area was clean and well-maintained
    -we were given excellent directions to Jaco and then to the unit
    -we arrived on Christmas Day, picked up the key and instructions from the management office lock box, then were called later that evening to make sure everything was okay
    -the unit was very clean, well-stocked, and freshly painted
    -we spent our 4 days here reading on the large patio or by the pool, walking on the beach/watching the surfers...very relaxing
    I hope you find this review helpful and reassuring. Any hesitations we had very quickly vanished after arriving. It was a perfect stay and exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely stay here again and/or recommend it to friends!
    Small aside: after leaving and dropping off our keys at the management office we ran into car trouble. Gabriel very kindly helped us out of a jam so that we could catch our flight in time - thank you for that!!

    This place worked well for our family. The bedrooms were a bit dusty (and therefore sneeze-causing), but overall it was very, very acceptable. The one downer was that there are no elevators for this third-floor condo.

    This property has everything you need and the location is perfect. Although the local food is very good, we mostly prepared our own meals in the kitchen. We played in the ocean every day and swam in the pool every night. We rented bicycles for the 5 minute ride to downtown and got amazing fruits and vegetables at neighborhood stands. In town you can arrange for trips and tours and other transportation.

    Wesley P from Lewisville, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    As everyone has stated before, the view is what you are paying for here. It's the rainy season and I only had 2 sunsets, but they were spectacular. It's quiet and on the beach close to private resorts and residences on the best part of the beach for surfing beginners and boogie boarding (boogie boards in the closet) and just hanging out. Gabriel was great and very accommodating. It's about $3 or less for a taxi to town if you don't have a car and it rarely took more than 5 minutes for one to show. I did not get a car as the taxi was very convenient. No worries with this place, it's a great beach condo with a great pool that is very refreshing and clean.

    Randy T from Ingleside, IL recommends this vacation rental

    My wife and I traveled to Costa Rica with out 13 and 14 year old duaghters for Spring Break, WOW!!! This property lives up to the description, the view from the sun deck is amazing, the location is convenient and the beach was fabulous. Even the pool on the property is excellent. Riding the surf on the boogie boards we found in the closet was the cherry on top. Since this was our first stop on our grand tour of Costa Rica we had a rental car and there was even secure parking on the property. This is probably the best accommodations we've had for this price, Five Star value. Don't get me wrong this property is not a Five Star all inclusive resort so if you've had your fill of those and want to be adventurous then you should love this property. Do a little grocery shopping stock up on beverages and have great stay. All of the activities you dream of are easily arraigned. Plenty of good restaurants and anything else you need is near. Gabriel from BEACHHOME Costa Rica Vacation Rentals was very helpful and always available to assist us! Paradise!

    We stayed for a week at Mar Arena #32 and it was really great. The property is located directly on the beach. It is a little bit further from the majority of the restaurant, but it also means that the spot is quiet. From the balcony you have the most beautiful views. The condo is spacious and the pictures of the space does not do justice to the condo. Also family firendly, we were traveling with a 6 month old and my parents. Overall a great spot.

    We had a wonderful stay. Very clean room, nice cool air conditioning, fabulous view, and Gabriel was always available to help us out or provide suggestions. There was only 2 of us, but the spare bedroom was perfecr for all our luggage and clothes we used it like a massive walk in closet! The batteries died in our remote and they were replaced immediately. Plenty of towels, warm shower water and all the amenities we were hoping for. We LOVED the oversized terrace. Very private and we enjoyed the company of a large lizard who lives on the roof. He was there to greet us day & night and never threatening. :) We loved the coffee maker, oven, microwave, boogy boards and washer/dryer. They definately made our stay more comfortable and accommodating. My husband is already ready to come back and stay "in this exact location". Haha! There wasn't any noise since the location is just south of the hustle and bustle. We rented a car and were pleased we did since we're adventure seekers.

    Overall we couldn't have picked a better place for our 5 year anniversary! Highly recommended. And this coming from world travelers who have recently visited Kauai, Belize, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Bahamas and more. Enjoy your stay!

    Felt that the property could use some updateing. The unit was very clean and comfortable however. We were not able to use the AC in the bedroom at night as it was too noisy.

Its overall location was convienient. Overall we had a good stay.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 6 week stay at Mar Arena #32. The unit is spacious, quiet and the location is perfect. The outside deck is large with lovely views. Many hours we spent sitting beneath the large umbrella. The pool in the center of the units is well maintained, large and provides welcomed refreshment. Strolls on the beach were something we enjoyed. It was nice that all we had to do was open the front gate and we were on the beach.
    The property manager was very helpful in answering questions and meeting our needs.

    I would recommend this condo for the following reasons. It is on the best part of the beach and it has the largest pool in Jaco, good security,good management. The cons, this is a very badly laid out condo. It has only one loveseat in the living room, no counter space for prep, and is lit with bright unpleasant lighting, the washer and dryer are were the fridge should be, the kitchen cupboards are made for giants. The beds are comfortable and there is Wi fi and cable tv. It's still a good choice, you're not buying it. We had a great time here, great sunsets from the balcony.

    Overall our stay at Mar Arena on Jaco Beach was wonderful! The view is amazing and the grounds are impecibly maintained by a friendly maintenence crew. The rental unit was very clean and property manager very friendly and accomodating. The furnishings inside the unit are a little outdated but in good condition. The property is located a greater distance from town than I originally thought. I was told it was a five minute walk but it was about a 15 minute walk. Otherwise the property was beautiful and as promised.
