I loved my stay at the Croc's Resort and Casino. The owner has really put effort in the decor and details that make a stay more memorable. I appreciated the high quality bedding and bed itself, I slept like a baby! My only regret was that I had not found about Croc's sooner and stayed at a chain hotel down the road that I would not recommend!

Everything at Crocs was first class from the start. Beautiful pool, fitness center & right on the ocean. All the bartenders, wait staff & concierge were phenomenal through the course of our day. There is a little coffee shop in the building and a couple great restaurants too. I plan to be back in Jaco within the next 6 months, and I will be staying here again! Thank you for such a great stay.

SCAMMERS I ordered the biggest and most expensive room via booking.com and received a moldy small room. I’ve been told by the receptionist we will not be charged for that night and we’ll get a free update for the next night. She did upgrade us the next day but still not the room I booked. My original booking was $422 so they should have only charged me $211 or less since I never got the room I originally booked but when I checked out of the hotel they charged me fraudulently two separate charges of $299. So I paid a total of $600. I disputed it with my bank and crocs denied the claim saying both charges are accurate. They try to double charge us in the Pool bar, in the restaurant and finally on checkout. Over all we had a very bad experience. DO NOT GO THERE

We stayed here for 7 nights from Dec 31, 2020 through Jan 7, 2021. The hotel is beautiful, the pool is stunning and the service is fantastic. The staff go out of there way to accommodate you and are very happy to. The pool is just beautiful and is 4 giant round pools all connected with bridges, a slide, lots of water fountains and even a beautiful waterfall with seating. There are lounge chairs built into shallow water, it’s really quite lovely. Lots of seating around edge of pool and several whirlpool tubs attached to pool. Plenty of places for families and couples to relax, yet not too busy seeing the whole pool at once. Lots of seating around pool with umbrellas and shaded areas. Grounds are well kept. We would definitely stay here again. It’s a little off balance with the covid nonsense, but no masks required at restaurants or at pool or beach. Only really inside businesses in Jaco. Also, the stay included breakfast and the menu is wide in choices sit down table service. The breakfast was fantastic every morning, we tried a different breakfast each day and favoured them all! Would highly recommend this hotel. Unfortunately the casino wasn’t opened nor some of the restaurants. You had to ask for room service when needed etc. Towels for pool daily exchange. The staff make this hotel. Great location right beside quiet part of beach in Jaco. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
