This review has been a long time coming as my wife and I hosted our wedding at Doce Lunas back in August of 2019. Additionally, we also stayed there in June 2018 prior to our wedding to check out the grounds/rooms/facilities/city. We had 40 guests stay at the hotel for the wedding with all 20 rooms booked. Hotel overall- While The hotel is located a little off the beaten path of Jaco, it is still ideally positioned and in a more quiet spot of the busy town. A quick car/uber/taxi/bike ride will get you quickly into town. What really sold us on this hotel for our wedding was the overall grounds which are breathtaking and amazing. All the rooms are generally secluded and provide great privacy but are also very comfortable and nice. Awesome pool and restaurant. Staff - everyone at Doce Lunas is super nice and helpful. Special thanks to Jose, Marilyn, Carmen, diego, Ariel, Rubier (Ariel and Rubier also own the shuttle company and operate nice shuttles and can take you to other places like manual Antonio) and our wedding planner Kate. Everyone was so friendly and helped to make all our guests stays more enjoyable. Food - Wow. All the food was more than amazing. We even had a whole pig cooked for our rehearsal dinner. Diego was the chef and everything he made was phenomenal. Wedding - while the overall planning for the wedding may not be up to par with American/western standards (this is Costa Rica after all and is to be expected), everything went off without a hitch. We had one minor issue during the entire wedding day therefore it was a win in our book! The whole wedding was amazing and we wouldn’t change one thing about it. Food, DJ, ceremony...everything was great. At the end of the wedding, a lot of our guests and us all decided to go for a late night swim in the pool (something you can’t do at a lot of places). Overall, our guests and us all had such a great time with no complaints from anyone. While the biggest downside is just the overall planning and some coordination (mind you that my wife and I are also big planners), all the great memories and everything else far outweighed anything. As a part of our guests wedding packages, everyone received shuttle to/from airport, all meals, and their rooms at a very affordable price. What made this even more special and enjoyable was the fact that we had the entire hotel/grounds/pool to ourselves. This made guests feel entirely comfortable and meant that everyone could easily relax and just have a great time. Would highly recommend Doce Lunas for your wedding. …
I stayed two weeks in Hôtel Doce Lunas in April 2021. The entire stay was incredible. Rooms are spacious. The staff is amazingly kind and food was excellent. The hotel is surounded by the jungle which offers the visit of many animals. I defenitely recommend this hotel for your stay in Jaco.
This is the place I always go in Jaco, Costa Rica, there is not a better place, super secured, full of trees and nature, pool incredibly big and nice, my family and I enjoyed this Hotel so much, is incredibly perfect!
I love spending time with my son and family here, they have a restaurant and the food is very good, the staff is very kind, always there to make sure you have a great vacation, I truly recommend this place for families, you won’t regret it, you will find peace. Thank you Doce Lunas for the hospitality, it’s always good to come back to a place that makes my family very happy.
I just enjoyed this Hotel so much, didn’t want to go home, it fell like heaven! My grandsons were so happy. The rooms, the hospitality, the staff just amazing. Thank you Doce Lunas for this time in paradise.
