This is a great hotel feet from the Pacific Ocean with a great staff and some of the best views of the ocean in Jaco. The staff at the hotel cannot be more helpful in making your stay enjoyable. Unusual shaped pool right outside your room and includes hot breakfast.

The Rooms are very nice and clean. Big bed, A/C, Cable TV, hot water, etc.
The pool are is not that big and neither the pool itself, but it is nice and it does the trick.
The cool thing is that they give you a key to open a little gate and then you are right on the sand beach. That beach side is nice and calm, but after 9 PM the beach is not that safe.
Bad thing is the parking lot, it is small and is not closed or watched at anytime. Also the breakfast is only a small plate of fruits and a couple of toasts. If you want the big typical breakfast you have to pay extra.
Other than that the place is nice and the rates are reasonable.

Room Tip: Second Floor Room, last room on the hall

Muchas gracias por su crítica a nuestros Hotel, esperamos lo haya pasado bien y quiera volver. Nos extraña que comente que el desayuno solo fue un plato de frutas y tostadas cuando los huéspedes tienen varias opciones a elegir incluidas en su tarifa:
- Gallo pinto, huevos, plátanos y natilla
- Panqueques
- Huevos con tostadas
- Cereal y
- Sandwish de jamón y queso
Quisiera saber si no se le ofrecieron estás alternativas o hubo un mal entendido.

Le agradezco su comentario para mejorar.

Maybe not the nicest or newest hotel in Jaco, but it’s right on the beach with its own private access. The hotel even has its own small pool. The rooms are all right and the beds are comfortable. There’s a flat screen TV with cable, internet, and air conditioning. The hot water shower comes from a Lorenzetti electric shower head.

The price for the room may be a bit high, yet still the norm for Jaco, and in high tourist season in Costa Rica. I only needed a room for the night, passing through driving from Panama to Nicaragua. I might look for somewhere else to stay on a future trip, but this may be the best it gets along the coast at this time of year.

Nothing wrong with the room or hotel. It was clean and comfortable. Can recommend it.

The hotel is close to many amenities for shopping and dinning but is quite and secluded with private access to the beach. The staff is always busy keeping up the buildings and grounds and it shows as everything is in good shape and clean. The pool is big enough to cool down and splash in and the water is always crystal clear. The rooms are a blend of Tico (local) and North American. The hot water is point of use for the showers but cold water in the sink. The rooms have large modern fridges and microwaves with coffee makers.
The hotel is far enough away from the main street that your sleep is not disturbed by any of the activities on the main drive.
For breakfast you have a choice of Typical (rice and beans with eggs) toast, Pancakes, eggs and fresh fruit with coffee and juice.

What I liked Best about this Hotel was it's Location. Just yards away from the Ocean -has its own Secured Gate- the Price, the Service and the Lovely Garden they maintain inside the Hotel. Plus, they maintain a Security Guard to watch the Entrance at night. The Downside is the room. I stayed in the Old Section of the Hotel while my Friend had a room in the New One. My Room had a bit of an Odd Layout. Kinda like a Large Triangle. And it needed a Fresh Coat of Paint. Really nothing Major. I would stay again. To get a Hotel so close to the Ocean, you can't go wrong for the Price I Paid ($80 night). It's well kept, with English Cable TV. Plus, a small Fridge and an A/C wall unit. Nothing Fancy. Ideal for Folks on a Budget.
