    Good hotel in Jaco
    The hotel is nice and clean . The rooms are big and comfortable . It is great hotel for family with kids . A little bit far from the centre but the restaurant in the hotel is good . We only stay one night there so my review is based on one night only.

    Good 6,0
    A nice stay, in a old, worn out hotell..
    The hotel was a old, worn out hotel, that looked like it used to be a luxurious hotel in the 80s. The pool area seemed to be nice for children, all though it was in the same condition as the hotel – old. The staff didn’t speak much English, but despite that, they were all really helpful and went the extra mile. Rooms were clean, but, surprise, old. All in all a good stay with friendly people, breakfast was nice, but the place desperately needs modernization..

    Great Value for the money
    My wife and I stayed two weeks in this hotel and just loved it. I was a little nervous to make the booking for so long but it worked out really well. The room was a decent size and very clean. A/C worked fine (and we really needed it!). Plumbing was great. Nice big shower - which I love. TV was fine with about 4 English channels. Wifi was a little slow in the room but worked fine in the lobby. Friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast (included) was fine - much of the food is too salty for me in Costa Rica. Our room was near the big, clean pool that was relatively quiet most of time. Location was excellent, easy 5 minute walk to the beach and all the bars and restaurants that Jaco has to offer, but far enough away to be quiet. I probably won't go back to CR - too many other places to visit but I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Playa Jaco
