Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I stayed at Girasol Apartotel for a month this past summer and loved my time there. The location is excellent with the well-maintained garden giving right onto the beach. It's a two-minute walk to the main street and all the restaurants, bars and shops. My unit was charming with large front folding doors/windows that open completely to your own little patio with two chairs and a small table. Beyond the beautiful plants which provide some privacy is the clean and refreshing pool. The unit was very comfortable and clean, and had everything in the kitchen to prepare meals. The staff are all great, in particular Josue the manager who is very attentive, responsive and helpful. I look forward to my return this winter.

Girasol is a beautiful, cozy, and charming apartotel right on the beach and two minute walk from the main strip with all the restaurants, cafes, shops and more. The rooms are super spacious with nice living area, kitchen, bathroom and a large bedroom. The manager of Girasol is very helpful and very accommodating. The staff is very friendly and always ready to help with any questions. The big giant, mystical, magical tree that is located on the beach side of the apartotel is very charming. There is parking available for the guests. The hotel has a very nice and clean pool, and outdoor siting area as well. Will definitely go back to that spot again.

We had to stay here, because the other Hotel we booked was closed when we arrived. Being desperate we booked here because of good reviews on booking.com, google, hotels.com, Etc. The staff was friendly & the pool was nice, but the apartment was awful. Clean but very outdated. It lookes like everything is about 30 years old and never has been updated. And that for 150 USD a night! The living room was incredibly hot (30 C) and has no aircon and no window if you don’t feel like leaving the veranda doors open, where the local cat, the toads and all the neighbors could enter... The bedroom has an aircon which was good, as sleeping in a sticky 30C room is awful. The matresses and sheets are 30 years old too and we had a very thin linen on the spring matress from the 80ties and a very worn out one to sleep with. Over all: a solution as we were in need of a bed, but I would never ever stay here again.

A family member set us at this apartotel, and it turned out to be a nice surprise. The property is right on the beach but separated by a wall and gate (though it is unlocked), plus there are security guards just in case. There is a nice pool, though it is in the middle of the buildings, so you do have people walking around and talking right outside your room, if you open the patio doors.The only negative were the mattresses, which were springs with a layer of material on top.

We've been there two years ago and it was great. Right by the surf, nice pool for the kids and basic accommodation. Went back now to find that management changed, prices were higher and none negotiable, and many more strict rules like having to wear a weird hand wrist at all times due to security reasons, lack of key to the parking (we had to call to guard each time to go in and out) and inflexibility in general.

This place is really great, so near of the sea, calm and beautiful. Our holidays were perfect and the staff was really nice to us. We specially enjoy the location and to be able to go to the beach, even without shoes (Girasol is directly on the beach). I recommand it and will return there for sure.

I recently had the pleasure of spending a week at Girasol from 4/21 - 4/26 and we had an awesome stay. Girasol is rite next to several other beach resorts that are slightly secluded from the big casinos and we found a lot of Latin Americans and Europeans staying on that end of Jaco where it was less congested. The rooms were perfect and apartotel is certainly the way to go, ac in the bed rooms, good bathroom, swimming pool and 100m from the beach, not much more to ask for! Phillip the owner had some good advice for us (2 young bachelors from the US) regarding entertainment in the evenings and we never had any problems. Great price, great staff, awesome place to stay, HIGH RECOMMENDED! S.
