- Very Good
We rented for a month. It was a good home base. Very secure and safe. Great little kitchen to cook in. Grab some fruits and veggies from the stand a block away. This is much cheaper than most hotels and you have your own apartment. (we paid $1300 for a month) Curt made sure we felt at home and he is very nice. He also has a van and can be hired to take you a number of places including the airport. I recommend you ask him about this. His rate is reasonable and he drives very well. Many of the Tico drivers, drive like crazy. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to beach and the main drag. You can take a cheap taxis to other nearby beaches ( I recommend Playa Hermosa it is gorgeous)Take a 20 minute taxis up to Villas Caletas for the sunset and a drink/food. Take a boat across the bay to Montezuma and other great spots. Curt has info about a number of tours as well.
“The best deal in Jaco beach period! unforgettable hospitality.”
Just got home from the best costa rica vacation ever. We booked all of our tours and transfers fron Curt and saved a fortune. Those guys run the best rainforest and waterfall tour, ask for the turtleman tour. Breathtaking and refreshing. If Curt and Doug dont have it, you dont need it. Wi go pool cold a/c you name it and they will make it happen. They ordered us delivery food, took us all over costa rica for a fraction of what I have paid in the past. I will never stay anywhere else in jaco. These guys know costa rica and customized our vacation and it was flawless. Thanks Curt and Doug, truly unforgettable! See you next year.
“My Encanto Stay”
Our stay was great. We had the best time and a lot of it is because Curt was such a great host. He picked us up and dropped us off from the airport. Everything is as posted. Great location and we cant wait to go back to El Encanto!.
We stayed at El Encanto for a week and had an amazing time. The place was perfect for what we were looking for, 2 bedrooms and a pool out back, and only a few blocks from the beach. Everyone that stayed at the complex was extremely friendly. Curt was extremely helpful with every excursion on our trip, coordinating each activity we wanted to do. We merely told him we wanted to fish and zipline, and he made the arrangements with a local fisherman and ziplining company that was extremely well priced, much cheaper than if we had set it up on our own. He corrdinated any transportation when we went to Manuel antonio for the night, along with airport transit that was much cheaper than the going rate.
Response from the owner Thanks Domenic Really enjoyed you guy's It's really nice to meeting young professionals like you guys to assure for the future of the U.S Thanks again come back anytime
“Exceptional week and all that I hoped for.”
Curt was absolutely the best. He picked me up from the airport and gave a running commentary of sights all the way to Jaco. He took me to the grocery store and helped me understand the prices. The condo was nice and cozy and had everything I needed. Hot water & pressure excellent...a/c in all rooms. Curt was always available for any questions and took me on a little tour of the town and along the coast. Doug gave an excellent tour of the rain forest and stop at a soda at the top of the mountain for lunch. His knowledge of the rain forest was excellent. I had a wonderful relaxing week and would absolutely return in the future.
Response from the owner Arlene Thank you It's always a real pleasure meeting nice people like you and you are always welcome here. Keep in touch And I will help you find a permanent place here call or email me anytime. Thanks again Curt
“Big bang for your buck!”
My wife and I stayed at El Encanto apartments for 5 weeks in Jan.- Feb. 2013. The apartment was more than adequate and easily met all of our needs. It was spacious and clean. The location was perfect, we were 10 minutes from the beach and five minutes from the main strip. The owner (Curtis) and side kick (Douglas) were very helpful and greatly enhanced our memorable vacation. Curtis picked us up at the airport then took us to do groceries. The cell phone he offers with the apartment came in pretty handy as well. Both Curtis and Douglas were a wealth of information when it came to anything we wanted to know about Costa Rica. This was very helpful to us seeing that this was our first time visiting this beautiful paradise. Thank you both for all your help, it made a world of a difference...They also offer a variety of excursions that we took advantage of. Most notably was Doug's unforgettable rainforest bomb tour. What a great day! It's an absolute must. Another highly recommended tour is the Calypso catamaran tour. You'll be amazed as to the pleasurable day spent on the water and Tortuga Island for the cost. Curt can also get you a discount on this tour. Overall, our stay at El Encanto, Jaco beach far exceeded our expectation. The humble and kindred spirit of our hosts coupled with an excellent environment made this awesome vacation our best ever. Kudos to both of you and we will definitely be back at El Encanto next year!
This was my first time ever traveling out side of the USa and staying at El Encanto made the experience all the better!! We were only a couple short blocks from the beach and surrounded by some great shops and restaurants! Not only was the location of the condo superb but the condo its self was more then satisfying. There was a good size kitchen with all that we needed to cook. There was a living room area that was great for relaxing and have a social drink before heading out! The bathroom was great with a shower that had good pressure and hot water. The bedrooms were a nice size and both offered a great view. There was aC in all the rooms but it never seemed to get too hot in the condo but was nice to have when needed. There was also a balcony that was nice for sitting and hanging beach towels and suits after a day at the beach. Curtis was an amazing host. He lived in the same condo complex so he knew what was going on in the neighborhood. It was nice to know what he was there if we needed him (made me feel good being it was my first time in acountry like this) he picked us up from the airport and gave us a great tour and layout of the city. He brought us to the store to get food and was very helpful in understanding the money exchange and where the best place was to get things. He drove us to wherever we wanted to go and was more then happy to do so. I would be more then happy to stay at El Encanto again!!! Thank you Curtis!!!
“Great Condo in Jaco”
I had a great experience at El Encanto. The condo was very comfortable and it had aC and Wifi and a nice little pool arranged with chairs. The condo was fully liveable with a stove and a fridge and a freezer and a warm shower and an electric skillet and dishes. Also Curt, the owner, is a really friendly guy from Florida. All the service is excellent. Curt showed us around and he knows the ins and outs of the Tico culture. Also he provided very reliable transportation to and from the San Jose airport. The location is decent, right next to a health clinic and not far from any food. Also it's a short cab ride to anywhere in Jaco.
I stayed at El Encanto with my girlfriend and another couple and El Encanto couldn't have been more perfect for us. We had enough space, working showers, AC and a were just a few blocks from the beach. We were walking distance to everything that we needed (stores, restaurants, shops etc). Curt was great. He picked us up from the airport gave us a tour around the town and helped us out with whatever we needed. Having someone to help guide through the city and the surrounding area was so great to have. This was a great place I will definitely go back if I return to Jaco.
“Best deal in Jaco”
My friends and I rented a condo at El Encanto over the 2012 holiday season and we could not have been more pleased. The condo was super clean and comfortable for two couples. Plus, great air conditioning in every room and HBO, and Wifi for when we were beached out. Not only was the atmosphere safe and relaxing, Curt was an excellent host going above and beyond the call of duty making sure we got the most out of our 7 day vacation. He provided rides and discounts on activities that would have taken us precious beach time to figure out on our own. Thanks Curt! Hope to see you again!
