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 have been to this hotel many times with my kid. The rooms are big and very comfortable. All the amenities are well maintained. The pool is clean and very safe for kids. The breakfast is really good, I suggest the coffee is really good. The restaurant is clean and the pizza is fantastic, for my kid, the best was the chicken with french fries. The service is good and fast. The games area is really nice and organized. The garden is well maintained and the best part of this hotel. It's like sleeping in a beautiful tropical garden. The hotel is very close to the beach and the city of Jaco.

I went into the casino at Amapola. I'm just going to say I have been to many hotels in costa rica AnD almost every casino. This is the best place to go if you will be in jaco. If your in jaco, stop in to play 21 here. Best odds in costa rica.

The outside is amazing and the pool has a good temperature. Unfortunately, there are a lot of grasshoppers. Also, there are cats in the restaurant which I loved but could be hated by others. The shower was spacious but the jet was very harsh on the skin.

Recently our group of 14 travelers stayed her for two nights. We had some issues; the power in our block of rooms was briefly out, the A/C unit in one room was dysfunctional, the WIFI was most reliable in the common areas and rooms near the common areas. However, the GREAT staff made it a great place. Lily, in particular, was fabulous. When notified of our power outage, she jumped on that and made phone calls. Our power was restored in short order thanks to her. When informed of bad A/C in one room, she immediately reassigned and helped move that couple to a different room. When informed that one member of our group had a birthday, Lily and the head cook helped us plan and throw an impromptu birthday party. The great staff made this a great place.

Went there for a weekend in Feb 24th. Years ago, was a really good place, when it belonged to Barceló, but now is a hotel with a poor quality, needs a lot of maintenance, staff is bad, customer service is bad, the worst part was the people in charge of the pool bar (two guys that drink while working and one of them trying to Hitch on every girl he see alone...while working), drinks at the bar were awful, and from a whole list of drinks in the menu, they only had like 5 available. I regret wasting my money on that place. The only good thing about the place is the excellent customer service of one man, that is always well dressed with a suit and has a foreigner accent, he was the only staff member with excellent customer service

I guess the hotel was full of life and crowd on old times... but for now just memories. The hotel services still on but in a basic mode. Dont expect much from the restaurant area, the casino its a bad joke. As an option to have a place to sleep its fine, out of that...

Really good hotel to stay in Jaco! Friendly staff and rooms are clean and nice. They have a small nice casino, the pool is big enough. If you want a place to sleep while you visit other places and restaurants is a very good option.

The Casino is small, impersonal and no poker or black jack. Food at best is ok! Like being in a ghost town. Long walk to everywhere. Won't be back! I don't know how they keep the doors open. We left after 10 minutes!
