We stayed here as part of a Caravan tour and quite liked it. It is a big resort with a great pool and for our tour was an all inclusive. The staff was friendly and the bartender efficient. It is about 2 blocks from Jaco and the beach. We didn't care mach for Jaco (best described as a dirty surfer... More

Our room was not made up on the 2nd day until after 4:30 PM. And it was not cleaned particularly well. I expected a little better, as all the other hotels we... More

This hotel was used for two nights in conjunction with Caravan Tours "Costa Rica Natural Paradise Tour." The accommodations were comfortable and well maintained. The only problem encountered was the large number of locals using the facilities.

I was part of three single girls traveling through Costa Rica and it was our first big trip outside the US/Mexico. Our first hotel was near Manuel Antonio and was great and clean (despite itty bitty ants in the room but were no bother) and everyone was hospitable. The next stop was Jaco for 5 nights (way too long in... More
