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.

Pro's : The front counter girl at check-in is beautiful and kind. The disco /club Republik's security staff were fun and friendly and looked out for you. Con's: No one stayed here that I could see, for good reason. The disco plays trance base accentuated music so loud, it shakes the walls and actually hurts your ears. I was saved by Bose noise canceling headphones. There's no escape unless you leave the property ( which is a good idea). During my stay Republic's Club was still going Fri night into Sat until 530am. It was not other clubs causing the noise, as I have read from in other reviews, that's total BS. The club draws youngsters 19/30yrs. leaving the Cocal partying in full force. Homeless people abound in Jaco especially near the Blue Marlin area. I could go on for quite a while. I'll end it by saying I would not stay at this hotel again, even if it was free. That should some it up.

Do not book this hotel! I repeat DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL! We arrived at 5pm because normal front desk at any hotel would be available at 5pm but apparently they don't work past 5pm. We stayed outside the hotel for 2 hours until a security guard said he would make some calls to see what can be done. They had no clue that we were even on their books to enter the hotel. The towels in the rooms were ripped; we asked for new towels they said no one can help us until tomorrow morning. We asked for soap, there was none. This place is not a hotel, it is a club. People were waiting in line in front of my room to use the bathroom. We couldn't sleep because our room was legit inside the club. By the way, Cocal is great so clearly that's not the issue. They didn't want us to enter with our water bottles because you can only enter through the same door as all the randoms going clubbing. This was a torture room; my ears were bleeding in the morning. I thought I was sensitive, maybe brother experienced the same in his room. We booked for 5 days, we lasted less than 15 hours. I've stayed at hostels all over the world, not bougie to say the least, but listen to me clearly: DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL. In the morning 8am we decided we had enough, I told the front desk guy about my experience he said I understand we've received many complaints. They chose not to refund us. This was HELL, I wouldn't book this hotel even if my life depended on it - I rather sleep on the street. Our Uber driver said to us - Are you sure you want to stay here? - that made it clear that it was hell! It's not a hotel - people book this hotel for a week and leave within a day. They are a cash cow making money off people cancelling their room after a day.

Hotel Blue Marlin This is a new place to stay in Jaco. Located on the other side of the street from the Cocal (and its awesome restaurant - Latitudes), it is a perfect central Jaco location. Off-season, I was the only room occupied out of the 10 rooms they have. Super quiet and it felt funky having the whole hotel to myself. It has a nice pool and supposedly a great wood-oven pizza, bar, scholarship girls, and Republik dance club... but they were closed in the green season (May). Maybe open weekends, don't know. Lots of rain in Green Season. Bring a group of guys for the weekend and you can literally take over the place! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED hotel and staff/owners who were incredibly polite and friendly and accommodating.
