“Great personal attention at Parklands”
The Central Valley is the best, with breezes and 75 degree aver. temps. We stayed 3 months at Parkland condos, 2 at alegro Premium and 1 at Cariari Vista. Both condos were great but different. Alegro is isolated near the quaint town of San Rafael. Without a car, bus service is a short walk at the entrance, so we could take trips to many towns and explore. Within the gated area is a pond where there are ducks,turtles and tilapia. Close to the area is a strip mall with a small grocery store, 4 cafes and many other businesses. The grounds and pools are beautifully landscaped. The breezes are great for sleeping. The Cariari condo was a short walk to the Plaza Cariari Real mall, which has a movie theatre and many shops. Every fast food restaurant is there, as well as sit down restaurants. A walking bridge across Ruta 27 highway gets you to the Hard Rock Cafe Costa Rica, a steakhouse, souvenir stores, another shopping area, etc. There is a bowling alley a block down from our condo. Buses and taxis are close by. I got spoiled with weekly cleanings and beds changed, towels washed, etc. by a housekeeper. Both condos had a phone for free calls to the U.S. and Canada. Another phone gave us free local calls. And we were given a cell phone to carry with us with instructions to call Paolo if we needed help or got lost. The best part of booking a Parkland condo is Paolo and Sara. They take care of you to the max. Paolo booked tours for us, ordered taxis, solved every problem we had and answered all our questions, even when he wasn't in town. He even called us one day to say he had business in Panama and wondered if we wanted to ride along for the day. Not having a car turned out to be a plus for us, because we both lost about 20 pounds in the 3 months we lived like the "Ticos" and walked everyday to different adventures. There are so many things to do in Costa Rica...volcanoes, beaches, lakes, rivers, rainforests, etc. I would highly recommend staying at Parklands.
Response from the owner Thank you for choosing to trust Parklands and come stay in beautiful premium condos in Costa Rica's central valley where you enjoyed a relaxed lifestyle, wonderful activities and sights, rental cars, shuttles, and good eating. Your attitudes were very flexible, and you embraced a new, diverse life style in a tropical friendly land and culture with total optimism. Costa Rica was blessed with your visit! We were honored helping you with weekly plans. And you really did look so healthy and well after those 12 weeks. It's really true, you lived out the slogan: "Come to Costa Rica to de-stress, relax, have fun, eat, exercise, and get healthy.... painlessly!" :-) So, when can we have you back in Costa Rica or Panama? :-) PS. The walking bridge near Vistas Premium Vacation Condo that you refer to actually crosses Highway 1 to the Wyndham Hotel Convention Center and the Hard Rock Cafe in Real Cariari, while Alegro Premium Condo in the far western location has direct access to the modern Highway 27 (taking you straight to the Pacific Beaches one way, or CIMA hospital and Escazu's Multiplaza Mall and the Sabana Stadium the other way)
Anyone who stays at Parklands with Paolo and Sara as their guides will just enjoy it to the ultimate experience of Costa Rica! The condo was fabulous and comfortable. It was a great place to stay that seemed like home. We (my husband, 8 month old son, 9 yr old daughter and myself) stayed 30 days and not only did they have adventures for us to try we also had the luxury of rest at the condo. The condo has everything you need and more.. It is definitely the place for a family getaway at Parklands!! Our daughter so enjoyed the atmosphere.I highly recommend the condo for a Romantic Getaway as well. Paolo and Sara are the best!!!
“A comfortable condo with very accommodating and helpful owners.”
Paolo and Sara took great care of us during our first visit to Costa Rica. They were able to reserve a tennis court and the barbecue for our use, sent us on a fabulous rafting trip and organized a couple interesting and entertaining tours for us. We enjoyed the facilities. It was great to have a washer and dryer right in the unit and our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) slept, ate and lived very comfortably for almost a week. The owners are very knowledgeable about Costa Rica and were quick to make suggestions for us without being pushy. We look forward to coming back some day. The location was excellent - far enough away from San Jose to avoid the hustle and bustle, but close enough to get into the city and do some touring. It's also just a couple minutes from one of Costa Rica's main highways.
“Positive introduction to Costa Rica--Service, Atmosphere & Clean”
Our family of five (three teenagers) stayed for almost a week. While out of San Jose, the condo serves as an oasis! It's incredibly well-equipped, clean & in a great, little, condo neighborhood. Paolo provided fantastic suggestions, service & support. We never would have experienced the rafting, coffee tour, water falls & city destinations without his advice & attentiveness. This is a such a great location for families because you can serve yourself in a great kitchen with comfortable spaces throughout, and you easily can access activities that make Costa Rica a great, energetic destination!

“Great condo and great managers”
I love the condo, I felt safe and welcomed by Paolo and Sara. The condo was clean and stocked with everything a person could need to have a great experience. Everything in the condo is top-notch and Paolo and his great family are very kind and help with everything. I will stay at this great condo again in the future for sure.
My experience here was absolutely amazing. The view is breath-taking, while you are lounging at the pool, you are surrounded by lush green mountains and beautiful trees. The accommodations were perfect. The entire house was comfortable and clean. The kitchen was a good size and the T.V was big and made for a cozy night in. The price was affordable and fair. thoroughly enjoyed my stay here!
It was what we need it, close to the city but far away from noise and people. The bed, the tv, the sofa, the kitchen... everything makes your time there more than pleasant.
This condo was absolutely beautiful and beyond clean. Paolo and Sara were great hosts and have a beautiful family. They made sure I knew everything when I checked in and was there to answer any question I could possibly have. I felt safe and relaxed beyond words can describe. The condo is well stocked and comfortable, it has everything a vacation rental should have. I was given help with rides and shopping, the full tour that is needed to be comfortable. The guards are great and constantly make you feel safe by walking around enough to be comfortable but not enough to feel like its too much. I would and will stay at this great condo again in Costa Rica.
“Great Place to Stay”
My wife and I arrived at Parklands Vacation Conda in Nov./2010. We were celebrating ou wedding anniversary. We couldn't have had a better 2 weeks anywhere else. The condo was clean and comfortable,and the grounds and pool area were just great. We were able to come and go with ease with the use of our rental vehicle and a cell phone and GPS supplied by Paolo and Sara. There is lots of shopping, resturants and many tourist sights to see in the area. Paolo and Sara also arranged some guided tours for us that we really enjoyed. We would recommend Parklands to everyone. The service was exceptional, the property was beautiful, and most of all we madwe some friends( Paolo and Sara) who we will never forget and hope to see again soon
