The Villlas is located in an old family farming neighborhood. The neighborhood is mixed between vacation rentals (closer to the villas) and Tico homes. We personally know almost all of our neighbors and feel that the area is safe and well kept.
Getting around is easy. A 12 minute walk or a $3 cab ride will get you into the center of Quepos (near bus station). Villas Jacquelina also has bike rentals for around $5 per day.
Villa Jacquelina was awesome! Esteban and his family were so friendly, hospitable, and knowledgeable about the area. The location was perfect; a short walk to the shops and beaches in Quepos, and very close to Manuel Antonio. We will definitely go back if we are in the area in the future!!
Villas Jacquelina is a nice place. However, the place is located on a dirt road full of gravel. It is a hard 15 minutes walk to town and in the evening the dirt road is very poor lit. I had a very big room with 2 full beds and 1 single bed. I was told I was getting the deluxe room for $60.00/night which was reduced to $45.00/night. My deluxe room did not have any air conditioner. It has a ceiling fun and not TV. (3 beds for 1 person) It seems that the rooms do not have any TV sets. On my last night, there was not hot water and Esteban could not fix the boiler because it was too dark too work on it. On the plus side, Esteban is a nice guy who came to pick me up to the bus station and welcome me with a coconut water. In addition, they would give a ride to anyone to the bus station early in the morning. Breakfast was good.
Esteban and his crew were fabulous hosts. They made sure that all of my friends and I were comfortable and treated like we were part of their family! Esteban even went out of his way and cooked an ABSOLUTELY amazing fish dinner for all of us! Besides the breakfast tacos he made us the next day, it was probably the most delicious meal we had in Costa Rica!! Also thank you to EM for the awesome yoga class! There is no better spot in the world to do yoga than on top of Villa Jacquelina, facing the morning sun, while listening to all of the birds and animals that surrounded us! The Zendo team will definitely be back next year to stay at the Villa Jacquelina!
From the moment I arrived to the moment I left I felt incredibly welcomed, at ease and at home at Villas Jacquelina. Esteban was helpful, informative and absolutely delightful! VJ is clean, quiet, BEAUTIFUL and hands-down my new favorite home away from home. I can't wait to go back! It has everything you need: a fully equipped kitchen, pool, CLEAN bathrooms, sweeping views, indoor and outdoor eating and lounging, guide books and attractions catalogs. There is even a daily shuttle to downtown Quepos and rooftop yoga! I HIGHLY recommend letting Esteban take care of you while abroad. I'll be back!! See you sooner than later I hope!
Esteban and his staff are very friendly and helpful. The daily breakfast is amazing and there is yoga ($8) offered at 7a.m. in the morning. You think that's early, but it's actually perfect since it's not bloody hot yet. The location is a bit out of Quepos but I like that since it's quiet. The walk into town isn't bad at all and there are plenty of good restaurants in town if you don't want to go to Manuel Antonio to eat. The hostel is beautiful and clean; the staff take a lot of pride in keeping their facility tidy and customers happy.
While we were at villas Jacqueline ,Esteban's family was arriving and it made the stay even more enjoyable. They are very friendly group and very welcoming. We shared meals with the owners and had a great time. It is far enough away from the noise of downtown yet close enough to walk there. Thanks for teaching us some great games....especially the dice game lol. :)
Villas Jacquelina is a quaint hotel/hostel about a 15 minute walk from the town of Quepos. Great kitchen for cooking your meals. Eating /lounging area with hammocks and great views! The pool was much needed on those hot days! Beds are comfortable, bathrooms (shared) stay very clean! Daily shuttle to the Quepos bus station - it's an easy 15 minute ride to Manuel Antonio. Esteban is a fantastic host - friendly, knowledgeable, easy-going and fun! The rest of the staff was equally friendly and pleasant! I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and ability to meet other travelers. I didn't want to leave!
Precioso sitio en la montaña. Alejado del centro de Quepos y muy tranquilo. Personal super amable que hace que te sientas como en casa. Magnificas vistas desde las múltiples terrazas, geniales para ver el amanecer. Esperamos poder volver a algún dia!
Steve was friendly, picked us up from the bus station and was great about helping us get into and out of town. The room was exactly as expected.
We spent 3 nights at Villas Jacquelina and it was great. At the beginning when we arrived to the city we could not figure out how to find the place because we just did not have all the roads on our map but if you ask any taxi driver on the street they can point the directions and then you will also find signs along the road and then it's all nice and easy :-)
The room was spacious and clean, way better than we expected. Steven was super helpful with all the tips on what to see, where to go, how to behave here and there. Very friendly as well. Thanks Steven for making our stay in Quepos so enjoyable!
