Small hotel in a great location. Walking distance to everything: beach, restaurants, shopping, grocery store, "main street" of Jaco. Family owned and run - very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Rooms are spacious, clean. Would certainly stay here again.

You know the creepy uncle who tells all the craziest stories the loudest? If you've done something, he's done it more than you and better. He always embarrasses. That's not Ricky and his wife! They are very accommodating and helpful! We had to have a late checkout, but still ran behind due to health issues. Ricky was very nice in...

Ricky and his wife were great hosts and seem like a sweet couple! We got the two-double-bed room, it was clean and comfortable. We were just crashing for the night on our way from Drake Bay back to San Jose so we didn't really go out and see the town. Ricky gave us good advice about a local place a...

Ricky is an excellent host. He was welcoming and really helpful is getting settled and planning local activities. Kitchen was good (knives could use sharpening), rooms were very well decorated and extremely comfortable. This hotel is highly recommended!

Friendly owner, nice room, great location, and a nice little pool to cool off in. I was very happy with my stay. The owner went out of his way to help book me a ticket on the water taxi to Montezuma, an option I didn't even know existed until he told me. Worked out great. I'll stay here again next...

Fantastic. I stayed for four nights. They have an excellent location right on the beach, and the rooms are great. Ricky, the owner, was friendly and helpful way beyond what is required. He grew up in LA, so understands well what tourists need.

The staff is just so incredibly helpful and fixes any small issue very quick. Cable tv works fine and so does the internet connection - if there is a hiccup with the wifi, you can get it fixed quickly. The location was perfect for us with only 100 meters to the very good beginners surf beach, which is also very...

Situated just off the main street and very close to beach. I had a nice big apartment, air con, fridge,TV etc. Small hotel no restaurant but loads places to eat nearby. They have parking and a small pool. Ricky the owner is a helpful guy.

We were looking for just a cheap but decent hotel in Jaco when we came up with this spot, loved the pictures and booked. Pulled up out front in easy walking distance of all of Jaco and looking at the beautiful blue pacific just a couple minute walk away. Everything was already waiting for me, my receipt and everything I...

We had a very nice stay at this gem of a hotel right off Jaco Beach. We went during the off-season, and when they found out I was there for my birthday, they upgraded us to a better room for free. The beach is about 50 yards from the hotel, and the main downtown strip is right around the corner....
