    $650-800 contained in an envelop was stolen from the security lock box in the room that I was staying in. This was an inside job, the staff is not to be trusted.

    Do not recommend

    The pool and restaurant areas were clean and updated. Our room’s bathroom was tiny and had missing window panes. Very few amenities and no washcloths. Could see daylight all around the room door. Missing window panes on baloney windows. Sandy tile floors. Very doubtful I will book here again.

  • 4.0.Fair

    So my biggest issue was that I paid for a room with 2 beds and was told I couldn’t have any visitors at all, I wasn’t expecting to have anyone spend the night and eat breakfast but literally couldn’t even meet a companion to bring to the hotel for even a moment to socialize. I’m paying for a room, if they aren’t sleeping over what does it matter to have a visitor ????

    Nice spot on the beach

    I booked one night so I would have a place to stay while I checked the other options in Jaco. I ended up staying 10 nights. Great location, nice rooms, very reasonable, good restaurant, great staff. Really enjoyed the Beach across the street ( free Beach Chairs ) and JOHNNY coming out and serving us Beer and Food. Some great places next door, great sunsets, close to everything. I travel a lot and would come back anytime.
