    Nice, quet location with private parking. The room AC was amazingly quet. US hotels should take notice. Room was large enough. Only thing to complain that lightning in the room was too dim and the breakfast not particularly tasty.

    This is a family hotel in a very busy loacation in Jaco. It was not really a romantic getaway type of hotel. The room itself was nice but the matress was old and hard. There were tons of kids yelling all through the day and night. The breakfast was great and the pool was nice but so busy.

  • 4.0.Fair

    I did not like the fact that there were a really lot of stairs and paths we had to manuver to get to and from our room. Our room over looked the pool and the bar and there was loud music and loud talking from the drunk patrons late into the night. The stairs were wide and many different depths which also made them harder to maneuver especially when you are lugging luggage.

    Quiet little hotel. Staff so so nice. Two iguana couples live on the property and visit the pool. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Pool and grounds pretty. Definitely would stay here again.

    The staff are friendly and helpful. Everything very clean. Room doors have just a knob lock, would have felt more secure with better lock. Included breakfast with menu options and table service. Loved the big iguanas wandering around the pool
