This is the third and last time I've stayed at Balcon del Mar...The other two times weren't bad, but not excellent like the others have written. I have a home in Costa Rica and will do occational day trips to Jaco. This time I wanted to have a pool to enjoy...what a joke. It is currently "xmas break" for all...

We only stayed for one night. The hotel was situated right on the beach and was very busy. Parking was a great problem. Our room was on the ground floor that opened to the swimming pool and was very gloomy and due to its location we had to shut the curtains that made it even more gloomier. The furniture was...

I don't understand all the negative reviews. My room was clean and pleasant. The loation is great and the breakfast is very good. The only true neagative is that its used as a hotel for lots of educational tours. Kids weren't loud during the night, but are evrer present in the pool during hours. Jaco isn't my first choice for...

We had the misfortune of staying here a couple of night in Feb 2013. Looked OK on hotels.com, but I guess the picts always do!. The only plus for this place is the location. It is right on the beach in Jaco. First, I have slept on floors more comfortable than this place. The beds were terrible! The room was...

Other than the location of being right on the beach, this place is terrible! Have slept on floors more comfortable than the beds! Took the A/C a day and half to get the room comfortable. The small fridge was off so that took better part of a day to cool off and put drinks in. There was no coffee maker...

This was one of many stops on our recent honeymoon. The hotel was okay (the room was small and the bathroom needed updating), but the location was great. We really didn't spend much time in the room so it wasn't that big of an issue for us. The locals were really friendly. My husband quickly became friends with a couple...
