Hotel is extremely affordable; specially for its location: it's 100 meters from the beach and close to everything in Jaco downtown. Room was big and clean, A/C, fan and cable TV (which I was not expecting and came in handy at night when my child got bored and wanted to watch some cartoons!). There is a nice pool, lounge area...

Floor was wet/slippery when we arrived, small gross hairs on bathroom counter, shower dirty, shower simply drips cold water (we had no hot showers here), no soap or shampoo provided until requested. My wife and I stayed two nights in a private with bathroom, glad to leave. It would be fine if it wasn't $85 a night, I would expect... More

Spent one night while on our way to Dominical. Great value. Clean. Good management. Pool very clean. Room had a small fridge which was very convenient. Really easy walk to the ocean. Backed onto a stream with lots of wildlife. Would definitely stay there again. Wifi available in common area.

I happened to be in Jaco when Costa Rica played in the World Cup and that was a fun time to be there. I watched games at the local restaurants and had a merry time watching the ticos celebrate there win. After they won a game, the streets filled up with cars and an impromptu parade broke out....

I found this hotel to be a good option for surfers. Nothing fancy and basic, but clean and convenient. The owners live in the same building. The hotel has a nice pool and common area. I remember well freezing AC - the owner set it quite low when I checked in.

The positives of this hotel is limited to the outside area which is undeniably nice, but the necessity of the pool is questionable considering the hotel is so close to the beach. Most of the staff are pleasant and helpful too. My boyfriend and I booked a private room with a shared bathroom, and I was quite frankly shocked by... More

Excellent hotel: the room is big and clean, bathroom ok and a terrace. There is a swimming pool and a beautiful waiting area next the pool. The hotel is near the beach. Last but not least: it's not expensive.
