High milage, tatted, dressed to the 9's, foot tall platform shoes, waddling plump, about 75 of them, days after Christmas milling around the twin pools and tiki bar. Lovely beach front property. But lore of drop dead gorgeous females from reviews and forums just wasn't there. Just numerous, very polite, well dressed grizzled old pros. People watching was majorly entertaining...

We didn't stay there, we did go to the casino to play some. I did pretty well with that. The hookers are full force there, with 50% of them being easy on the eyes. I cant say much for the food or hotel, but the casino and bar were good.

Well the food at breakfast and the sandwiches at lunch are good. Located right on the beach for a great setting. But since this Hotel/Casino is known for its nightime activity, you get a wide range of patrons. Most are there for a good time and behave accordingly.........but others go out of their way to try to become the latest...

The Cocal is a well-equipped hotel that's right on the beach in Jaco. It has modern rooms, two pools, a decent restaurant. a pool bar, a casino (if you're into gambling), and it's close to the main street in Jaco. This was my second stay; my room was ready when I arrived late in the day. As always, the staff...

This hotel is everything you have read in the previous reviews, its for the single traveler looking for company of a working girl.

This is not your average hotel. I was forced to stay here for a night as the town was fully booked. It may appear to be a normal hotel if you check in during the day, but as mentioned in many other reviews, it is loaded with ladies of the night at a disturbing level. If watching creepy old expats...
