Reading the reviews one would normally be scared to stay here....if one thinks they can pay less than $100/night and not have a paint chip falling here or there or some wear and tear on the front door, you're not being reasonable. the location (just outside the noise and hustle/bustle) of Jaco is convenient. The resturant is very good! It's right on the beach...the pool is grand...the A/C in the rooms is great..what more can be said. I was looking for a place to stay for our last few nights in CR and we came back here for a second time on the same trip! Just a 5 minute drive to town for other dining options but I would strongly suggest the on site dining for at least one meal! Breakfast buffet is outstanding and the staff was very helpful...to this point, when we came back…
My group had a great time staying here. The rooms are fairly dated, but the beds were comfortable, there was an air conditioner, and the bathrooms were clean. The buffet offers some delicious breakfast and supper. My favorite part of staying here was the black sand beach. being able to walk up and down the beach in the mornings and evenings was just breathtaking, especially seeing a sea turtle go to lay eggs late one night. The hotel is located along the highway making it really easy to get to the towns nearby, but with that being said it can be noisy at night with semi-trucks driving along the highway. Overall I would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the pacific side of Costa Rica.
Clean comfortable family hotel with lovely wide black sand beach, nice pool & good restaurant. Scarlet Macaws on the nearby montana in the morning. Staff were friendly & competant and spoke English well.
Beds comfortable, great location and close to town. Like most places in this area, suddenly VERY expensive for what you get. Food good in my opinion. Dinner $25, drinks $8-9 (!), beer $5. For this place, that's very high. They never opened the pool bar, which would have been fun. No night life at all. Go out to buy a bottle of vodka and mixers for the family and room - $45!!! (one bottle) :( Pool is fun for kids. Showing it's wear a little, but really didn't see a better place in the area. Jaco a pretty beat up place, itself!!! I wouldn't hesitate staying here if you get a good price compared to others. NOTE: don't plan on swimming in the ocean here. Always VERY rough.
My husband and I had a great time here. The personnel of the hotel was awesome and the food was delicious. The breakfast included was a very delicious typical Costa Rica breakfast. I give a 10 for all of them !!
