A beautiful 60 minute ride in from San Jose International Airport along the new and scenic highway or a 90 minute breath taking ride down the 'recently' old (only since highway) mountain road and you arrive at the privat gated entrance to Tres Regalos Beachfront Condominium Resort. After a long day of traveling the highway works well for most but keep in mind that the mountain Road is well worth the ride to many. The gates are opened and you enter the jungle style laid brick paver parking area and all its beautiful flowers. You walk between the two buildings passing the Bodega and you are at the pool with the Pacific Ocean only steps away. You ride the elevator to the third floor and open your condo and walk into a beautiful impeccably decorated airconditioned 3-bedroom master peice. Walk stright into the living room and look out over the balcony directly at the Pacific Ocean in front of you, the pool directly below you and the Mountains, Rain Forest and River off to your right.
Incredible: The 3rd floor balcony boasts a bamboo bar with stools as well as a large table and chairs for your enjoyment including viewing of the most incredible sunsets you will ever experience almost believing that the ocean is on fire as the sun drops directly in front of you into the Pacific. As you sit on the balcony with the Ocean in front of you and the mountains and rainforest to your right as well as a fresh water river flowing from the rainforest into the ocean you are completely surrounded by nature.
The moon keeps the ocean in full view at night and the sounds of the waves unfolding on the beach is all you will hear making for a fantastic nights sleep. Arise early in the morning to catch the remaining moments of the moon and watch the fisherman heading out for the day in their boats while enjoying the worlds best and most incredible coffee.
Tours and Trips: Any and all tours can be booked through the front office including World Class Fishing through our partnerships with some of the best boats and captians in Costa Rica! Groceries can be purchased on your behalf and awaiting your arrival. Taxi service to and from your front door through our trusted and knowledgeble English speaking drivers. Courier Services via our incredible onsite, friendliest staff on the beach. Including assistance with all your needs. Ask Paulo at the front gate for a surfing lesson - he is a great surfer, a good friend and an awesome teacher. Baby sitting services can be arranged through our trusted staff as well. This will be done in your condo if so desired and the girls are great. Usually our manager Mario's wife can and will assist you here shall you desire a dinner out without the kids.
Eating and drinking: Lists and Lists of Restuarants await your arrival. From the inexpensive 'typico' Costa Rican family style family run establishments to the 5 star 'dress me up and take me out' more expensive type and everything in between. The food is great at most and there are some hidden secrets so please ask as you will be absolutley delighted at where and what you can enjoy for food. The local grocery stores all sell fresh and wonderful food including some great never been seen before local fruits including incredible watermelon, fresh Plantain and bananas, and everything else you could imagine. The local Jaco Farmers Market is even better as the vegetables and fruits line the street for blocks and is simply great. From local fresh water mountain river shrimp, which come in about the size of a small lobster to the worlds best ceviche and most incredible coffee you have ever had you will be amazed. Sit on the balcony and wait for the sunset - NUTS!! Watch the lightning storms over the ocean later.

About Don Gilbride
Born and raised in Massachusetts and now raising two kids, two Boxers, two Cats, and running an electrical contracting firm here in the very same state. I have a absolutely beautiful wife named Denise I can't imagine life without and some day we hope to spend a lot more time here ourselves. We have been many places but coming home typically means we are heading to Costa Rica to our incredible condo on the beach here in Jaco.
Don Gilbride purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Don Gilbride chose Barrio Los Faroles
We spent lots of time looking and more time visiting many properties before buying here. The site was just a lot of land at the time and the location sold us. The plans for the facility and renderings showing what was finally built and now our home away from home showed a perfectly matched facility that simple fits in with its surroundings. We love our condo and we are positive you will as well!
What makes this Condo unique
The Mediterranean style of our facility has beach front written all over it. Our pool area and grounds are gorgeous. We are so close to everything, centrally located so as to give the best opportunity to see as much as possible yet we are unique and in our own little section at the end within only a 100 ft of the mountains with incredible scenery from all sides. A secluded beach tucked in behind a recess in the mountains only feet away with allow ability to walk along the rocks and to a waterfall that flows down from the hills and drops down on top of you. A great pool bar with stools you can sit on while in the pool, grilling area, outside shower, hot tub and so much more. You will be glad you came and the worst part will be having to eventually leave. You will be back and always miss the feeling this facility and our home will give to you.

North End of Jaco.
The property is clean , modern and well decorated. It has a great view of the ocean meeting up to a hill and the north end of Jaco beach. The location is away from central Jaco which is very touristy, but walkable to by road or beach. The development is next to a large inclusive resort and casino ,but seems to have little impact on the enjoyment of this property.
Thanks Tom for your review of my property. Do you have any advice on anything we could have done better? Although we are constantly trying to keep things updated we really count on suggestions from guest like you who found things well suited but probably a little less than perfect. If we can improve on anything please let us know and we hope to see you again sometime in the future Tom!
Very nice property in Jaco
Very friendly staff, safe and secure property. Well maintained would recommend if traveling to Jaco
Hi Sarah and family,
We wished you could have stayed longer and hope you comeback soon.
Don and Denise
The overall condo resort was nice - clean but the condo not so much
We emailed our condo management as well as the owners upon arrival as no one showed us where to go to the condo and then the elevators were out of service the entire time. Our patio table was busted and left lying on the balcony the entire time - it was not removed or replaced so we had to carry out the kitchen table every day to enjoy sitting on the balcony. We never did receive a key or combination for the safe which we requested a number of times. Wifi was supplied by the other units when we could connect. No hot water in the second bathroom - kitchen - or laundry this made for washing dishes extremely tough and having to share a bathroom with the two couples in order to have warm showers - I would say this was unacceptable. lots of cosmetic items needed replacing but I heard that they were trying to sell the condo so no wonder it was not kept up. We paid a high premium to rent this space for two weeks based on the averages of the other condo's rented out and were very disappointed that the owners or property manager - Pamela did not step up to help with some of the issues. The owners did not even respond to an email I had sent to them requesting a portion of a refund based on the issues. I would not recommend renting from Don or Denise with anybody. The resort was clean and most of the staff friendly and the guests were friendly as well. Nicely situated by the Casino but a walk to town which we enjoyed. I would look at other rentals in this resort and bypass the one we stayed in - oh there were no numbers on the doors to help you find your unit as well it was by testing the key in each lock.
Our reviews are often left by folks without solicitation eager to share what a wonderful time they had in the country of Costa Rica while enjoying all our home and our facility has to offer. On very rare occasions we are threatened with a bad review unless we provide a full refund and in some circumstances certain folks want much more than the amount they were charged for the time they stayed. The first time it happened to me I wondered what I should do as I know how hard my wife and I had worked to build our vacation rental business. We have no choice but to use it as an opportunity to reach out to good folks searching for a great place to stay while vacationing in such an incredible country as is this. As hard as we might try to give folks a home while away, to enjoy and call there own there is no way we will ever please everyone. In certain circumstances a good review just wasn't in the cards from the get go unless you were willing to pay for it. Our reviews are all very real and we would never do what essentially would amount to paying for a review. My family and I pride ourselves on our home and haven't now nor ever had it forsale. The adjustable temp hot water heater is a 60A electric, instant on-demand type water heater with more than enough output to supply both showers simultaneoulsy as it is not a storage type unit. Our home (not hotel) is one of the best furnished and equipped condo's in the project with top quality imported mattresses, Hotel brand (brought in from the US) top qaulity high thread count sheets with many sets per bed. Our kitchen is equipped with a Mr. Coffee and a Cuisinart stainless steel coffee brewer/grinder as well as a Panini Maker, two toasters and much more. The furniture was made in Sarchi by a local furniture maker after being designed by my wife. Our patio has a mini bar and stools as well as a table and 4 chairs. The hallway off the entrance from outside can often get marked up due to luggage being dragged in and back out and by the end of the busy season we will typically repaint that area of the condo. When you come to Costa Rica we know we can help you by providing you and your family a great home with many ammenities and as well provide contacts within the area that can take you to some pretty amazing places and would be more than happy to do so. Our condo manager is a New England native and Costa Rican business women who has been in the country for many many years and always willing to help you with a few tips!
I cannot put into words what a relaxing, wonderful enjoyable time we had at this beautifully equipped and appointed condo. This family vacation that included my wife, my kids and my 86 year old dad (He is 86 going on 60) marked our return to Costa Rica in roughly 40 years. I lived in San Jose as a kid in San Jose with my parents. (My dad took a job to work for an American pharma concern). How things have changed and progressed since then, all for the better. Costa Rica remains as beautiful as I remembered it, while it has developed it still has maintain its natural beauty.
The stay in Jaco was wonderful. The property is in a more secluded area of Jaco, although within walking distance to just about everything. The 3 bedroom high ceiling unit itself is beautifully decorated with high end furnishings. The Master bedroom is magnificent; the en suite master bath is just huge. 3 Flat screen TVs and great free Wi-Fi. It has everything you need to either prepare meals or you can easily walk to get a meal close by. There is a great little al fresco place with top notch prepared meals and service right outside the property. The town has great restaurants. The sunsets here are spectacular. They can be enjoyed from the balcony that overlooks the pool area and the ocean, with views of monkey beach. On our first day there we, went into town to have breakfast and were treated to a small band of 5 monkeys running across the street who perching themselves in the tree across from us, to the delight of all. All in all I would come back in a heartbeat, this condo offers every convenience and amenity desired.
My thanks to Don and Denise for their constant attention to make sure we had the best experience at their place. It’s refreshing and unique to see owners so intimately involved in every rental that occurs at their unit. It adds so positively to the experience and demonstrates the care and pride they have for this property. In addition a special thanks to Pam the rental property manager who went out of her way to also accommodate our needs and made this stay special.
Pura Vida !!!
Roy and family! What else can I say - You just made my day! Looking forward to your return this summer! I am going to help you and your family put together an itinerary so as you see some things that will take your breath away. We had no idea you were actually coming "home" Roy! You had been lucky enough to spend many years here as a child, which had to have been a great experience. Your dad must have felt great. Pam says hello and was very excited to know you included her in your review. Pura Vida Roy and family!
Beautiful Condo, Great Location
We had a fabulous vacation staying at this condo. It was a perfect location for us. The building is situated north on the beach so it was a little quieter. But, it is only a short walk into town on the beach or a $2 cab ride. The staff was great and helped us to get settled and assisted us with directions and cabs when we needed it. The condo is next to the Croc's casino. I was worried it might be loud, but it wasn't at all. We actually had a really great view of the crocodile mascots next door! The condo was very clean and was a great space. There is a beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony. The owner and property manager were always quick to respond to our questions or emails. The owner also sent a lot of great information and recommendations for things to do and places to eat. Overall, it was a wonderful time and I would absolutely stay in this unit again.
We all loved the property and its wonderful location. We highly recommend it!
The complex is situated right beside the expensive 'Croc's Resort'. In many ways, we preferred this complex to Croc's since it is much much quieter. The pool is wonderful...we spent many hours chilling on the terrific chairs. The complex is on the beach, so we would go from the pool to the ocean and back again. The beach is huge and very clean. The ocean was wonderful....and had great waves to surf or body-surf.
The condo itself was perfect. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms. We used the laundry machines on several occasions. We mostly hung out in the living room and kitchen....as well as the lovely balcony. The view of the pool and beach was fabulous...and the sunsets are nothing less than spectacular.
The condo has WiFi throughout, though we couldn't get wifi in one of the rooms. This was truly a tiny inconvenience.
All in all, this was a terrific home away from home in Costa Rica. We loved it and would do it again.
Thanks Robert and family!! You folks were great and we are so so very happy you all had a great time and that our home worked so well for you! I was really excited to see your awesome review but more so that it all worked out so well for you and your family. Thank you for taking the time to write this great review and I hope someday you come back!
Don and Denise
The North end of Jaco Beach is home to our lovely beachfront condo, where you will find luxurious touches such as imported mattresses, marble bathrooms, a third floor pool and ocean front balcony (complete with mini bar) and a staff eager to attend to your every need . Tres Regalos Resort is nestled in to a great North Beach location close to a forested and flowering jungle area directly on the beach. As you arrive you will be entranced by views of the mountains, the rain forest and the Pacific Ocean, Maybe even a monkey. Up to 6 adult guests can be accomodated in this 3 bedroom condo as well as a small child or any combination of the above. The Master has a king size bed and sliding doors opening to a mini balcony facing the pool. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third has two twins. You will find plenty of storage. Extras such as daily maid service, babysitting services, transportation, golfing, grocery shopping, surfing lessons, and World Class Fishing Tours can be arranged through our amazing onsite staff. Other Activities: We now have the beautiful Crocs Casino directly next door for all types of gambling, slot machines included. Many restaurants located in Crocs as well as a very active night life. You have got to head to Manuel Antonio for the most incredible wild life park and beaches in the world. Only 1/2 hour away and easy to get to. Carara National park is even closer. Incredible Zip lining and the Tranopy Tram lining tour for the less daring only 4 miles in either direction. Fantastic surfing with competions every weekend at the Back Yard in Hermosa - 5 miles down the road! The ATV tour through the mountains and up to a waterfall is great as these are areas you will never see unless on an ATV. The fishing is the best (World Class Incredible) Hiking in Parrita and all other areas is beautiful. Wildlife, Rain Forests, and waterfalls! Wow! A trip for dinner to The Villa Caletas on the mountain just out side of Jaco is one you will never forget. Tree house dining just outside of Jaco and on a mountain, Cliffside! Incredible food. Travel into La Paz in the mountains above San Jose for a cooler climate and a complete change in the type of vegetation. Fantastic Trip!! Golf: The World Class la Iguana golf course at the Los Suenos Marriot resort in Herradura is less than 10 minutes away. 18 holes of Magnificent greens through two rain forest valleys and along the Pacific Ocean as well. A technical course where a straight shot is often better than a long one! Often the white faced monkeys will join you with their young on the course. Scarlet Macaws and Toucans are popular visitors to the course. The food and drink at the end of a great game are fantastic at any of the restaurants here. The Hook Up is one of our favorites.
