Kings of Jaco lived up to the hype! My friends and I went down to Costa Rica for my Bachelor Party last weekend from all over the United States. Niina and Tia were the best and they showed us a good time and were very knowledgeable with any questions that we had. I love that they took the time to hang out with us and took us out, showed us around, and even went hiking with us! The Villa that we had rented was amazing, very clean and had a lot of amenities.10 out of 10 I would recommend! Hopefully I can go back to Costa Rica soon :)

Our goup of 25 men spread out amongst 2 houses on the water had a blast. ATV, whitewater rafting, boat cruise, excellent dining experience, in house chef for dinner night, different club every night, and staff to support cleaning, security, transportation arrangements. Erica Gomez our Concierre was the best. She did a great a job taking care of any concerns or questions we had. she made herself available to us during our time there. she provided great recommendations for restaurants and clubs. If you book with kings of jaco ask for Erica. you will not regret it.

I wanted to say how amazing Kings of Jaco was for our group of 25! We rented the two Dulce Grande homes right on the beach and from even before we arrived everything was top notch! Kat who was our organizer before the trip helped with the itinerary and organizing everything for us and was simply amazing and very responsive. Our host when we got there Erika Gomez was beyond great! She was there everyday and night making sure everything and I mean everything went well. I couldn't imagine a trip this good without her help! Again thank you to the entire team from Kings of Jaco! Simply perfect!

We came to Costa Rica for a bachelor party and had an unreal time. The Kings of Jaco took care of our every need at any minute throughout the day! Whether it was food, excursions, or something simple like getting ice, they took care of it!A very big shoutout to Tia and Nina who catered to our every need and always had smiles on their faces. We are super happy with everything they provided and whenever we return we will be reaching out to them again. If you want a great experience then look no further and book the Kings of Jaco!

Kings of Jaco really made our group feel like true Kings! Erica, our concierge was phenomenal she filled in the gaps where we were unable to maneuver. She knew all the great nightlife and dining spots and even got us extra time for our half day boat excursion. She truly was the best and a sweetheart! Cannot wait to come back and book with Kings of Jaco again. Until next time Costa Rica ✌🏼

Casa Macaw is an ideal location! We loved our week long family vacation. Tia planned our whole trip with wonderful fun full attractions. Everything was perfect!! White water rafting, fishing, horseback at sunset and surfing were all huge hits with our kids being 14, 11 and 8. Easiest vacation to plan because Tia took care of it all!!

Our experience with the people at King's of Jaco was fantastic. The accommodations were perfect, great location and comfortable. Kat did a great job pre-arranging all of our bookings. Once we arrived, Tia took over the concierge duties. She did a wonderful job arranging all of our requests from, golf bookings, stocking the condo with all of the necessities, organizing daily shuttles, booking dinner reservations and in room massages. She went above and beyond! I would highly recommend King's of Jaco as the go to service provider for all of your travel needs in Jaco!

We came as a group of 12 celebrating my brother’s Bachelor party with no experience traveling to Costa Rica or Jaco more specifically. Before you go to Reddit and do your research let me tell you that the pictures you see do NOT do this place justice. Casa playa del ray is absolutely gorgeous and from your back door you have the beach at your feet. I don’t know about you , but when I step on a black sand beach it feels much better than one you’d step out in Miami or Cancun. The waves are beautiful to watch and on Saturdays you see the whole town out on surfboards having fun.As far as the facility itself, you feel like you’re in a villa. The rooms are clean with TV and strong A/C all surrounding the hot tub and pool (which are are cleaned daily). You walk into the main building and there’s a fully stocked kitchen, gas stove and dining area. We played pool and foosball sat on the patio played games! They have a huge grill so we took one night to grill out and have a family style dinner. It’s very conveniently located, being minutes to downtown and all the food, bars, clubs, etc. Whatever you’re looking for you can find it and pay maybe 3$ for a Uber.But what really stood out here for us was the staff. We’ve travelled around the world but hats off to Tia, Kat, and especially Niina for treating us like family. We might be a stressful group sometimes but you all took it in stride and took care of literally everything we imagined. From our bartender Cindy to our own personal DJ with lights and everything, to organizing our boat trip, ATV, tables at the club, late night bites I mean I can go on. The best part is that they genuinely cared about us and you can really feel it. We’re sad to go but happy to know next time (and there will be a next time) we go to Jaco, we will only go if we’re with the KINGS!10/10 👍

Two blocks away from the beach. Nice location and excellent property. Tia was very cooperative and great host. Also the house help lady Maria did the great job in maintaining the house during our stay. Will definitely consider for our next visit.

Kings of Jaco really was the game changer for my trip to Costa Rica. Tia provided a concierge experience that took everything to the next level.Upon arrival Tia immediately sourced a car rental for me which actually wasn’t easy to find, but she locked it down for me!!! Next she booked tee times for me and my party at the exclusive La Iguana golf course at the Los Suenos resort. Then after finishing our round, booked massages for us that immediately arrived at the house we rented. It was so luxurious and relaxing and most importantly the massages were incredible.The house was exactly as anticipated. It was clean and expansive with no surprises and with all amenities and Tia was there when we arrived which was super helpfulAmazing experience!!! I will never go without booking my accommodations through KINGS OF JACO again. Complete game changer!!! Ask for Tia!!!

We stayed at Casa Dulce for the second time in 2 years. The location is great: close to the beach and the town but far enough from the main strip to eliminate unwanted noise. The maids cleaned the condo around our, somewhat erratic, schedule. Tia, our concierge, was (is!) spectacular. She suggested activities, booked them for us, and arranged for transportation when we needed it. After an ATV tour where our clothes became too dirty to pack, she even found an inexpensive laundry service that picked up our clothes and returned them clean later in the day. All of this done day or night with a laugh or a smile! I have stayed at a couple of 5-star resorts in other parts of Costa Rica and did not receive the quality of service that Tia provided for us. We will certainly be back!

This team was amazing! From the start, Kat set the tone on her responsiveness and recommendations in establishing an itinerary for us during this trip. Upon arrival in CR, Kat then handed us off to our personal concierge, Erika, who was simply amazing! Erika was available for us during the entire trip, ensuring everything went smoothly. Starting from the pick up at the airport, to ensuring we were settled into the house, to setting up our daily chefs, to scheduling all our activities, arranging transportation every day, and even being available to help us pick up stuff from the pharmacy when a couple of guys got sick, she simply made her self available with a smile. Erika remained with us until the very last moment when the shuttle picked us up from the house to drive us back to the airport. This team ROCKED!!

Cannot say enough good things about our experience with Kings of Jaco. From the start everyone was ready to help us with anything we needed. Found us a perfect villa, airport transfers to Jaco, a boat, a chef (legend), anything we needed.And Erika was the absolute best. Couldn’t do enough to help us with anything we suggested even last minute. And put up with our banter and became a friend.We’ll be back and we know who to call. 6 stars!

Great experience (as usual). Location is great right next door to Casino but quiet. Tia was great at arranging transportation and excursions. Condo had the best sunsets right from the balcony. Appropriate for any type of travel groups - it is very comfortable. Personal chefs and massage therapists were amazing. Would recommend getting a golf cart.

I had an absolutely excellent stay in Jaco with this team. Upon booking, I was reached out to and offered proper transportation to and from the airport, chef services, activities, basically everything to make my stay easy and feel like the vacation I planned. What made it even better was our host Tia. She made sure that whatever we needed at anytime was done as soon as possible, whether transport, reservations to restaurants etc. Overall I would highly recommend as it was my first time visiting Jaco, Costa Rica and my time was well spent and enjoyable because of Tia and her team! Thank you

*** Update***Kat offered us $50 of her own money 😂 because the owner of the boat said no. We asked for his info so we can speak to him directly, she blocked us. Shame on kings of Jaco, Kat and her friend the boat owner Alejandro.Highly disappointing!Before heading to Costa Rica we called around for a private catamaran. We came across Kings of Jaco and spoke to Kat who sold us on a luxurious catamaran tour. We asked all the questions about timing and what’s included. She told us 2 hour boat ride to island 5 hours on island and 2 hour ride back. Well that’s not quite how it went. We were picked up at our house and dropped off by our driver on a beach with no Kings of Jaco staff member in site. We called Kat as we were stranded on the beach and she said the owner Alejandro will arrive shortly. He did, took our money, cash…. $2450, bragged about the boat being an 2018 beauty, complete lie, we researched it. Old 2013 run down catamaran was the actual condition, and went on his way.We got on the boat and began the long journey to the island. It took over 3 hours to get the to the island which is much longer than originally told. Once we got to the island it left it about 2.5 hours to eat lunch and enjoy the beach before it was time to pack it up and return which also took over 3 hours. What was suppose to be 4 hour travel 5 hours beach turned into 6+ hours travel and 2.5 hours beach. We asked the captain if he can go any faster, he was going to slow, and he ignored our requests while drinking our beers. We contacted Kat when we returned to express our concerns and she responded with “well you drank 100 beers you must of had fun” and insinuated we were drunk. First off most of the adults on the boat had a few beers and her crew happily drank and took the left overs. She also said it has never taken that long to get to and from the island. We asked to have some of our money refunded due to the lies they sold us of this excursions. She said she would speak to the owner, he refused. Not shocking as he showed up with a $40,000 Rolex on his wrist. Makes his money ripping people off. Shame on Kings of Jaco and shame on Kat and Alejandro. Do not use them for your vacation excursions

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing King of Jaco's exceptional services during a memorable bachelor trip to Costa Rica. Their concierge, Erika Gomez, made planning excursions and dinners a breeze while maintaining a laid-back and enjoyable atmosphere. She effortlessly tailored our itinerary to our preferences, even when we had last minute changes/updates or assistance for my other friends stay in San Jose. She took care of every detail with professionalism and enthusiasm. Her knowledge of the local area and her infectious energy made her a joy to be around and she felt like she was apart of the group. We cannot recommend our concierge enough for their outstanding service, which truly enhanced our trip and made it one to remember.

We had a blast at our stay the house was exactly what we needed. The best part of the stay was our amazing concierge “ERIKA”. She always communicated and made our excursions painless. ERIKA was incredible, super positive vibes and great energy. She honestly felt like one of us. On our next trip to Jaco we will for sure request Erika and I recommend her with my eyes closed. Thanks Kings of Jaco and specially “ERIKA” for our amazing trip and experience.
Beautiful house located on the beach. Full gated community with parking for your vehicle. Very clean and secure pool is with in foot steps of you back porch. We came in June and Jaco is very quiet. We enjoyed walks on the beach at night and nice dinners in town for very reasonable rates. The people here are also great never once felt uncomfortable or unwelcomed. I would definitely stay here again no questions.

First of all, the "Blue Macaw" is an amazing vacation rental that exceeded all of our expectations. The property is stunning, with spacious and comfortable rooms, modern amenities, and breathtaking views of the ocean. The property was spotlessly clean and well-maintained, and we felt right at home as soon as we arrived. The location is also perfect, with easy access to the beach, restaurants, and other attractions in Jaco Beach.What really made our stay at the "Blue Macaw" even more special was the exceptional service provided by Erica, our concierge. She went above and beyond to ensure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. From recommending the best local restaurants and activities to organizing transportation and making sure we had all the necessary information to make the most of our time in Jaco Beach, Erica truly went the extra mile to ensure that our vacation was perfect in every way.In summary, we had an incredible experience staying at the "Blue Macaw" and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a luxurious and relaxing vacation in Jaco Beach. And Erica was simply amazing, providing top-notch service and making our stay even more memorable. We cannot thank her enough and look forward to returning to the "Blue Macaw" soon!

Amazing place to visit! With the beach house front its something to definitely take advantage of. Black sand and clear warm water with such an unbelievable sunset. King of Jaco made everything to accommodating, we loved their service. Erika and the rest of the team made it so easy to go ATV (a must), shopping and dining a breeze. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Looking to return in the future.
