“Excellent modern condo in the middle of everything!”
This fully stocked condo at Cariari is the perfect place to stay to be able to take tours everywhere in Costa Rica and walk to very interesting places. Ours was on the 2nd floor with a few steps up. It is charmingly decorated and has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Paolo can plan overnight tours for you and they either pick you up right at your condo, or just down the street at a local hotel. Paolo is a phone call or email away and answers all your concerns promptly, especially if you don't speak Spanish and need him to help you contact people. The added feature is the free direct phone line to the U.S. and Canada, another phone for local calls and you are given a cell phone to contact Paolo if you get lost. There are buses, taxis nearby and parking places inside the gated community if you rent a car. There is a modern shopping mall just a 10 minute walk away, with restaurants, shops, a grocery store, movie theater (English speaking with Spanish subtitles) and every fast food you can think of. If you go behind the condo area there is a longer walk to a huge farmer's market on Saturdays where everything is very cheap. There are familiar franchise restaurants nearby such as applebee's. A bowling alley is only a block down the street, and if you walk over the walking bridge over Highway 1, there is a Hard Rock Cafe, a steakhouse, another shopping area, souvenir stores, etc. We highly recommend not renting a car and exploring on foot. It's a healthy way to see what's around you. Staying in the Central Valley makes it a shorter trip to both coasts for a 2 or 3 day trip, and to visit 3 of the most popular volcanoes. And, the breezes coming in the windows at night make for a wonderful night's sleep. No air conditioning or furnace needed here. Ceiling fans are all you need. We highly recommend staying at a Cariari condo. Paolo and Sara make your first stay in Costa Rica worry free.
This condo is truly as good as it looks! It is even more beautiful than the pictures and well equipped. Wonderfully comfortable beds and high definition flat screen Tv's with Blue Ray in the master bedroom and living room make it a great place to relax.It is in a great location, walking a short distance to the mall, restaurants, bowling and movies! Highly recommend it!
“Will Definitely Come Back”
The city of San Jose is such a large area, location just cannot be stressed enough. The location of this condo is perfect. It's in a quite location, so you can relax and enjoy your time at the condo. But it's also close enough to walk to the nearby mall and shopping area so you can get food and other things without having to pay the expense of a taxi. (In Costa Rica taxi's are very expensive.) It's also close to the airport which is very convenient. Being only ten minutes away from the airport is always a plus. Then there's the condo itself. The setup is so nice that you really lack nothing. There's a kitchen you can use if you don't want to go out for food. You can do your laundry right in the condo. There is phone that you can use to call the States for free, WiFi internet, cable TV and a Blu-Ray player. The condo was very clean the beds were very comfortable. Can't wait to stay here again!
“Home away from home”
In July 2013 we had the pleasure of meeting Paolo and Sara while staying at the Cariari Premium Vacation Condos. It was like meeting old friends; they were so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We stayed at the Lapa condo and it was cozy, comfortable, tastefully furnished and had all the amenities. We even got a cell phone with Costa Rican number to use during our stay!! We came for medical reasons but I definitely want to return on vacation. Thank you Paolo and Sara for your hospitality and hope to see you again real soon.
We stayed in both of the condos that Paolo and Sara have at Cariari and we loved both of them. They were very cozy and have everything we needed. It was very safe, clean and the beds were very comfortable. The condos are located only 10 min from the airport and 10 min to San Jose which was a great location for us. We booked all of our tours from Paolo and Sara and they gave us a great deal and they gave us some great advise about what we should do while we were there. Paolo and Sara were so accommodating and they helped us with every aspect of our trip and were there to answer any questions we had even when weren't staying in their condo. I can't wait to go back!
“Every effort was made to make our stay enjoyable.”
Next time we stay over in San Jose' we would stay here again. It was an easy shuttle ride to the airport so at the beginning or end of your longer trip to San Jose' this would be an excellent choice.
“The entire experience was amazing!!!”
I truly can't say enough (positive things) about Parklands and the Cariari Premium Condo. My family and I enjoyed a fabulous vacation in Costa Rica for about two weeks over the Christmas and New Year's holidays. Paolo and Sara at Parklands treated us like royalty. They went beyond our expectations in an effort to satisfy our needs by assisting us with our various events/activities/adventures. Needless to say, after a day of exploring, it was an absolute pleasure to return to our condo to relax for the evening and enjoy a good night's rest. The condo was not only beautiful, but also very well maintained. It was the perfect set-up for a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids). Also, its proximity to the mall and various eateries was indeed a bonus. Would I recommend Parklands and the Cariari Premium Condo to my friends? I already did!!! Thanks Paolo and Sara!
“Cariari Premium - is really Premium”
This was an excellent location and Condo. We stayed for about a week and the condo was really everything that we hoped and a bit more. Everything was is super good condition and really well kept. We will definitely come back to stay here again! and will recommend it to both friends and family! The service we got in regards to everything with the condo was way better than what we have got in any hotel, condo or villa that we have been at in Costa Rica. We really felt like we were genuinely cared for. From Cariari Premium Condo i would recommend some day trips to Poas volcano and the La Paz waterfall gardens. Or just a stroll in any of the many parks in the central valley. As a Scandinavian it was a pleasure to stay in a high quality Condo, and I hope to do it soon again! With Regards, K, L & J + baby
“Extraordinary location, amazing sleep & a real fun stay”
This condo is the best! So beautiful and so close to San Jose. From the condo we walked a few minutes with the kids to Mc Donald's and the movie theater. Another day, for a crazy cultural experience, we left the rental car safely parked at the condo and took the $1 bus to downtown San Jose one day. It was much quicker and easier than I had imagined. Getting to the volcano to see all the animals and waterfalls was easy, too. Fun! From the condo, the views of volcanoes and mountains were gorgeous. And the breezes and sun... marvelous! My wife and I loved the queen bed master bedroom. We felt like we were 'floating into the clouds'. The mattress and linens were Intercontinental hotel quality, not what we expected in a vacation condo. The owners were focused on our needs. Everything was hassle free. They even told us to call them any time of day or night if we needed help or advice. This was a perfect choice, and we are coming back!
