Our experience at Hotel 9 was incredible. We stayed there for 10 days and every single one was amazing. The property is beautiful with gorgeous views and kept immaculately clean by the staff. Jaco VIP handled all of our concierge, bartending, and food services in which they went above and beyond every step of the way. I would highly recommend...

Great Service and location. Plenty of rooms, pool, Jacuzzi, pool table, etc. Right on the beach and near downtown Jaco. This was the best trip I have ever went on. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants a good time.

Rooms are all well equipped and spacious. The pool is perfect in the Jaco heat, and the views are hard to beat! A great place to bring a large group with everything you need and an unbeatable location

This is the best hotel experience I have had in my life! The staff and owner are wonderful, and the location could not be any more amazing. Every morning, I got to wake up five steps from the beach. The rooms are secure and clean, as well as really inviting. The pool, bar and grill, and indoor bar were the...

Upon arriving to hotel 9, I was astounded by all the amenities, and how spectacular the pool was! This was the perfect location for our week long vacation. I had a blast waking up to the pool waterfall, grilling pineapple for lunch poolside, and taking a dip in the ocean at sunset. Would definitively recommend this place for a big...

What an incredible experience from start to end. A group of 20 of us headed to Jaco and had no idea what to expect. I had read reviews of the place, but was still skeptical on how awesome it could really be. The property was actually incredible. Right on the beach, stocked with surfboards, awesome swim up bar, huge pool,...

“ The only thing that would have been better would be to include the gratituity in the overall cost to ensure the staff received their tip from all who attended our event. Also, keeping the kitchen bar stocked 24 hours a day would have been awesome for those of us dying of thirst in the middle of the night. It was stocked with beer and champagne but more water and juices would have been great to have at that time. ”
