A gem in Jaco
Excellent location in Jaco, right in the center of town, yet far enough for the main street to be quiet. Very nice pools, nice rooms, with attentive staff, good breakfast, a very good choice in Jaco, if not the best.

Very nice people in the heart of Jaco. I was only there briefly but the hotel was perfect to relax a little while making some calls and sending email.

Great location and value
I thought the place was a great value. The owner was very kind and went out of his way. I had an issue because I requested a safe in my room and they brought one five minutes later. I would definitely stay there again

Poor 2,0
Don’t go.
We got a complete outdated room, that looked old and not really clean. No hair dryer or anything. A pipe was licking on me while I showered and I decided against showering again in the morning cause it was so uncomfortable to use that old sketchy bathroom. The bed was really uncomfortable and the sheets were yellow. I decided to ignore the bad reviews and I wish I didn’t. I would NOT recommend this place even for the good location. Finally, breakfast was not good. I’m not picky and loved every breakfasts I had in the country, but this one, I couldn’t.

Great Hotel and Amazing Service
Amazing hotel for families with children. The 3 pools and Jacuzzi all worked and my 2 & 4 yr old loved the place. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. The hotel staff and owner (Yes the owner is on site and takes the time to ensure everybody is enjoying there stay.

Good 6,0
Friendly staff, but walls offer no soundproofing.
Staff are friendly. The hotel and grounds are clean enough, if a bit time worn. The walls are no help in keeping neighbors noise at bay. Whether long screaming kids, or even their parents quiet conversation, you will hear it all. It’s filled with kids- fine, if a room is adequetly sound insulated. Breakfast is not buffet style and while its is good enought, tge portion size is hardly filling.
