This was my second trip to Clarita's and it was as good as the first time. The staff was great and the accommodations were clean. You can't beat it for the price. The food and drinks in the Resturante was great as well as the sunset

So to start, the hotel offers modest accommodations, but that should not be discouraging. Jaco is becoming more expensive and finding a hotel room on a budget is becoming a challenge. Claritas is priced well for those looking to stay for several weeks without breaking your bank, and the rooms are clean. The staff is incredibly friendly, the owners are...

We want to warn folks that Clarita's is not an all inclusive resort. If you want to enjoy PURA VIDA and a relaxed, slow paced vacation, this is the place for you. But, you will not find room service, elevators, gyms, saunas, in-room wet bars, instant service, concierges, butlers or maids. If you have an appointment to keep, a business...

The servers at your bar were excellent, very friendly. It was inconvenient thought that they also had to check people in for their rooms while simultaneously serving as cashiers. They kept stopping check in to assist people paying their bar/restaurant check. No manager of any kind was seen in the two days we were there. There is supposed to be...

Room looks old and is not clean. Towels were worn out. One towel was missing at arrival. Very noisy. Saturday night loud disco music nearby. Small pool in the garden which we did not use. Safe parking. Good location, decent beach and average restaurant.

We didn't stay at the Hotel, but for 2 days we came to the bar sat outside enjoyed cold Imperials. Staff were reserved but nice, think they were overwhelmed by crazy Americans Drinking, Laughing and enjoying "Pura Vida!" Nicest elderly man, Oscar, sitting close to bar making Palm Hats and bracelets. Would definitely recommend anyone going by to enjoy the...

All things considered, this is the best place in Jaco. Room is basic and extremely clean. The maids work very hard here so leave a buck or two for them. Restaurant staff and security are exceptional people. Won't find better people. Food is great and highly recommend the Pescado Entero. There's only one way to go when booking your shuttle....

Good value for on the beach. Staff very nice. Little noisy from late night Latin bar next door, so if you want to sleep early maybe another place better. Hot water on the right side in shower, and plenty of if.

My only regret is that I was only able to stay 10 nights this time at my home away from home. You can read my previous reviews for more details. Had the pleasure of meeting Matt from San Diego this time. Told me he originally chose Claritas after reading reviews from people that keep coming back. I am one of...
