1
9,5 Excellent (168 reviews)
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Having lived in Jaco 15 years, the owner,Celine, was very friendly and informative about the town. Arranged horseback riding and bus tickets to San Jose.
Cons: Air conditioning didn’t work the 1st night but was fixed by noon the next day.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: My partner and I stayed for 6 nights, Celine was very good at helping our stay be as comfortable as possibe and with transport to depart Jaco. Mike taught us a lot about the local waters in Jaco and surrounding areas. This information is priceless when visiting a new country. The shared facilities are kept spotless (thankyou to the cleaner) the hotel is very secure and we did not once feel unsafe during our stay. I would 100% recommend attending the surf camp. Being Australian born & having surfed my entire life I can see & understand how much Mike cares about sharing his passion with people who are willing to learn, surfing is a special sport! Thank you again you guys! Pura Vida!
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Close to the beach and walking distance to town.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Owner is a friendly welcoming guy who is happy to help with anything, only a 5/10 min walk to the beach or town center. Hotel itself is very secure and you have a lovely little pool right outside your room, large well equiped kitchen to use also.
Cons: Nothing really

9,6 Excellent
Pros: Perico Azul is a beautiful little space just a few minutes' walk from the beach. The room was clean and cozy, and the owner was incredibly kind and friendly. We were only passing through Jaco for one night, but I'd love to return and stay here for a more extended period of time!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous space. Lovely decor - kitchen was fully equipped with everything you needed. Staff were amazing! The owners Mike and Celine did absolutely everything they could to make our trip as special, happy, exciting and memorable as they could! I would not hesitate to book to stay there again. Fantastic location too! Close to the beach, tucked away if you want some quiet and relaxing time, walking distance to some fantastic shops and the trips we went on during our stay were at the most, no more than an hour and 15 away.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The ambiance of this place was excellent! If the day was too hot in Jaco, I would gladly stay in any of the many shaded areas of the hotel (favorite spot...the hammock!). The Celine is super friendly and gave us great recommendations of places to visit, eat and drink! The room was clean and beautiful. Had coffee and fruits available every morning and the kitchen has everything you need to cook. Grocery store is at walkable distance as well as the main street with many restaurants. The parking space is just in front of the hotel and the wifi worked perfect. Super easy to go to the beach and you can use the chairs they have for surfing to relax by the beach. The surfing lessons were WAY BETTER than what I expected. I had Jason and then Juan as instructors and they made it easy for me to stand on the board. I'm already thinking of when can I come back to Jaco and will definitely stay here again.
Cons: Everything was good!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic and beautiful property that’s only a 10 minute walk to the beach. Celine and Mike are fantastic and kind owners who also own a surf shop. My partner got to surf in a one-on-one lesson that was cheaper and better than the other more expensive, group surf lessons. The rooms are clean, tidy and incredibly comfortable! We would absolutely stay again! Also, Celine was super kind about a flexible check out time, letting us store our bags early in the morning and after we had checked out. She also gave us spectacular advice about what to do in town. Parking was right in front of the hotel, safe and easy to find.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic property with security entrance, lovely plunge pool and a very clean shared kitchen.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Love the pool and the kitchen
Cons: Could be more variety for breakfast. Something sweet as an alternative to scrambled eggs. Can only Eat so many eggs and rice and beans. Find myself going to the bakery around the corner which has great pastry and fresh bread .Bread could be better. Capachino would be great as well. Given that it is a place where people were pretty healthy come to experience Costa Rica it might also be good to add in things like yogurt and some grains . I might also suggest some work be done on the bikes I had to rent one in town because the ones they are Not in the best of shape

Pros: Location is very convenient 10 min. walk to main street. Breakfast was OK but I wish they would have yogurt and local cheese for breakfast
9,1 Excellent
Pros: The staff was great and friendly! The free breakfast was good and having a pool was great. Having a nice air conditioning room was great in miserably hot Jaco and the room and bathroom was nice and clean. The rooms also have a small kitchen which was a nice touch. The frig was small so prob doesn't hold much but it was perfect for us since we only had drinks in there. It's not a 5 star resort or anything but if you are on a budget but still want to stay at a decent hotel then this place is perfect! We stayed one night in a miserable hot hostel and this place was a god send at a great price.

Pros: Small place with the feeling of a larger one. 10 rooms an a deep 15 meter pool. Enough chairs for everyone. Nice garden. We had a two beds with kitchen. Room was large, air condition placed right so you don’t get blown out of bed. I don’t know about the TV channels but internet was good. As most hotels in Costa Rica, this was overpriced, but it came close to luxury. Staff was very helpful and the cleaning spotless. Beds was better than most places with comfortable pillows and duvets. No noise from town.
Cons: Coffee not CR standard. A bit remote for some. Not 800 meters to beach, more likely 1300 meters, unless you are flying
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Great value for your money in this boutique hotel / B&B villa in Jaco. A large property with gardens and large pool -- the rooms are located in 3 buildings surrounding the pool. The room and bathroom facilities were fabulous. The property felt very secluded and relaxing. You could walk to the main drag where the restaurants and beach was located. Good breakfast.

Pros: The staff was very kind and helpful!
Cons: Wifi didn’t work very well in my room.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Loved the swimming pool, incredibly spacious bathroom, the foldable tables in the hallway next to our room door which were fantastic, the beautiful gardening all around the facilities, the price and yes the pool hehe! It's warm water which isn't always the case in other places, same goes for the the sink and shower, having warm water as an option is always great. Oh and the coffee maker with actual coffee stash and sugar packets was another plus. Really felt pampered and totally recommend it!
Cons: My girlfriend said the bed sheets were a bit rough surfaced and I had not thought about it but was able to agree. Our mini fridge also stopped working at one point and we only noticed until several hours later when our beverages got warm. After looking into the problem, it appeared to be the power cable being faulty depending on the position it was in. Lucky for us I was able to find the sweet spot to make it work again. An extra power outlet on the other side of the bed would have been nice also. Nonetheless, we loved our stay and plan to go back soon regardless of the things we described here, thank you to the hotel staff and Booking.com for making it so easy to find great lodging deals
8,8 Excellent

6,0 Good
Pros: The Food was amazing. The Staff was nice
Cons: The beds in some of the rooms were really old and the rooms had a mold smell. The pool bar was under construction. The hotel is NOT in Jaco, It is a $10 cab ride so dont be surprised like we were.
4,6 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: AC was not working and they tried to repair after we checked in and complained about the AC not working. Reception was not greeted and did not share the details
8,3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in the superior room, which had a very nice view of the ocean. The staff was really nice, and spoke well english. The restaurant is basically on the beach, and has a magnificent view too. Good restaurant. The AC works and is pretty silent, but it was a nightmare trying to control the temperature, so it was either warm and humid or freezing cold.
Cons: Be aware that they make you wear on of those paper/plastic bracelets to show you are staying at the hotel, and we had to wear it during the entire duration of our stay. It was very uncomfortable! There wasn't much water pressure in the bathroom making it a bit difficult to wash out conditioner.

Cons: There wasn't anything that we didn't really like, because it was exactly as it was described on the website. Our room was small and there wasn't a lamp by the bed, only one overhead light. I was disappointed that they charged $2.00 US for the coffee pods in our room.
4,6 Okay
Pros: The place smell weird!!
7,1 Good
Pros: It is ok.
Cons: Poor attention at the reception desk, here is why : even though the receptionist is aware that the elevator is under maintenance, she sugested me to take it in order to go to my room and never mentioned nor called the clerk to help us carry our luggage three floors up. I also asked for extra soap and a different receotionist told me he would send it right away, but that never happened.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: I like the location and the customer service for the facilities and security personal. I like the hotel, in general the room with two queen beds is pretty nice and clean and the others installations are clean, simple but pretty.
Cons: I didn't like that I asked about the accesibility to the second floor and the personal told me that it was ok. When I was there I had to spend one night in a cheap room, because the room in the second floor as some stairs. Also, I didn't like the breakfast, few options and the only healthy food was a few fruits. And finally I didn't like the customer service given for the person who sales the Vacational Club, they told me he was the Sales Manager, he has a very aggressive sale style and in some way I feel required to accept. In the end I did not accept, and I saw him a little mad about that.

Pros: We were looking for a low key, non stress vacation and this resort worked out perfectly for us. Great food, fabulous staff, clean, well maintained, relaxing atmosphere. The staff was outstanding from check in, restaurant, bars, housekeeping, pool, etc. Everyone went out of their way to make sure our vacation was perfect. Enjoyed the food in the restaurant at every meal. Loved our stay and would gladly go again and again.

Cons: Too Much MIndless Boom, Boom music at the pool which circulated into rooms. Intruded into one's privacy and was unnecessary. Softer and more vocal would be an improvement. WHEN THERE IS LIGHTENING, IT IS URGENT THAT POOL IS CLEARED OF SOME 30 PEOPLE. MENTIONED THAT AT DESK WHICH WAS NOT RESPONDED TO.

Pros: Staff was friendly
Cons: They need to switch the breakfast menu a little bit but it was good
6,7 Good
Pros: House keeping was punctional and complete. Staff was responsive to our needs. Room had a nice balcony. Modern digital safe in the room. They had free Wifi. Restaurant view is open...nice atmosphere. Omlettes for breakfast!
Cons: Most issues were with the room itself. Room was small and basic, remind me of my son's college dorm. The restaurant onsite reminded me of his cafeteria. The menu items for lunch and dinner never really changed. It was buffet style with 80% of the same choices every meal. Rice is the staple, which was served for every meal (including breakfast), same holds true for spaghettie, it was repackaged up every day with different sauces. Rooms have ice buckets, but no ice machines. There is NO ice machine for any guest. If you need ice you have to get from the restaurant on site. They provided me with a "glass" of ice, the few times I asked. The other times they were out of ice. The hotel provides you with a card that entiles you to a beach towel per person. Not sure if you can get more, or do you have turn in your towel for another one. I understand efficiency, but typically at most places I stay they do not ration out tiles. There was no iron in the room. I requested one, and they brought it up, with no ironing board... I just used the bed to iron on. No fridge in the room. We had free Wifi, but seem to be down a few times during our stay. Soap dispensor in the shower didn't work Sink sprays out water, everytime you brush your teeth you get a frew spray mist bath. I think sink needs a new areator. Very few staff spoke english, so some few communication issues, but minor... no harm
