Stayed here for a week with friends and it was a great place. Never got tired of the food. Staff was very helpful. The bar service was quick and drinks were good. If I had to complain about something it would be that the bar did not open til ten in the morning. But that is no big deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The front desk staff were not friendly at all, the bar staff was okay, housekeeping was very good, and the beds were very comfortable, the food was not good at all, unless you want hamburgers and hot dogs everyday. I have stayed all over the world and this is the worst resort I have ever stayed in. With that said, Jaco was a very nice town, and friendly […] people, I will not recommend any other hotel there, but only because I didn't stay at any others, I would recommend Adventure tours, price is right, and well worth the money!!!!!

"OK All Inclusive"
Hotel staff were not overly friendly and at no time went out of the way to make the vacationers feel like they were happy to have them there. We have stayed at many all inclusives and have never had a negative experiece. This was our first. Food was the same almost every day. Special requests were not able to be accomodated at the meal times. All in […] all not a great experience. The bartenders were friendly. Hotel beds were like rocks.

"Not what we expected."
When we arrived the first thing we noticed was a group of angry guest arguing with the hotel staff because the Wi-Fi wasn't working the staff didn't seem to care much either . My girlfriend found a way to make it work on her phone so at one point there was multiple guest & staff asking her for help the staff didn't even thank her either . The room was […] fine but a bit outdated, food was pleasing although we missed out on the nice deck restaurant for lunch because the staff never mentioned we could eat there. The staff overall was fine although most seemed miserable at their job. I don't think I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

At first they put us in a room next to a remodeling and the noise was unbearable, after I got serious at the lobby they moved us to another room, which was ok. This hotel needs an urgent remodeling or they should lower their prices!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Friendly staff, great location"
Most of the reviews I read about this hotel was pretty accurate. Its in a very good location, a lot of bars and shopping to do and right next to the beach. The food was pretty good and drinks as well. Most of the staff were very helpful and the premises were always clean. My only complaint was the size of the rooms and beds. They were very small and […] beds were hard. Also the wifi didnt work from time to time. Other than that Great place to stay! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Horrible. The AC in the room sounded like a jet. Grimy door hardware and floor around the walls. They charge to use their room safe. The outside Best Western light was not lit. Indicates lack of funds or lack of interest. No soap at the bathroom sink. Pepper grinder at buffet was sticky and dirty. Beach is rocky.

"Close to excellent, but...."
Our stay did not start out as nice as we planned. A week before I called the hotel directly to make sure we could arrive early (before check-in time) and use the hotel facilities (pool mainly), without any additional charge, the person that I talked to assured me that would not be a problem, just that the rooms would not be ready until check-in, which […] was not a problem for us. So we arrived about 4 hours before check-in ready for a good time. The manager at front desk was not at all helpful and actually very rude, in front of my whole family, including my kids. She began to ask me to provide the name of the person I had talked to the week before, which was just ridiculous, considering it is Best Western and not some cheap unknown hotel you can't trust. At the end we had to leave and come back at check-in time, horrible customer service specifically from this person. Once we checked in, everything was different, all other members of the hotel staff were great, something for the manager to learn. Rooms were great (even though we had a small problem with roaches), food was great and overall the facilities were excellent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It makes us very glad to learn that the rest of the staff treated you as you deserved and were always ready to do anything to make your stay more pleasant.

Once again, please accept our apology and you can rest assure that this was the first and last time something like this has ever happened.

"Hotel is in a great location, that is about all"
This hotel was very disappointing. The staff was very nice and the grounds overall were fine but it had to be the worst hotel room I have ever stayed in my life. It was bare bones- not even any soap in the bathroom. The in room safe did not work, it looked like a dorm room, noisy. The food is exactly what you would expect for an all inclusive- so no […] surprises there- but not good (bland not a lot of healthy choices). I would never stay here again.

The room was very clean. It had all the basic amenities. The food was good, and the fish was exceptional. The bar selection was very limited.

Mediocre at best. They seemed to serve the exact same food everyday. Got boring real quick. The staff seemed even more bored than I was staying there.

They should mention that it is for families. The dining room, the pool and all public areas were a constant din of screaming kids. The food was awful!!! Very oily and greasy and the same dishes day after day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK Hotel but disappointing"
OK Hotel for kids and family. The Hotel was clean and had a good location on the beach. The food was well below the standard for a Best Western Hotel. The Hotel had two bars, one by the main loby and one in the back going towards the beach. It took a long time to get a drink there and the snacks were so so. This bar closed a 5pm. After 5pm the only […] bar was a booth, not a real bar with seats, it had all the drinks but only one line to get your drinks. It took about 15 min. in line to get a drink. The other bar opened later. They had good music and dancing. If you had a late night having fun drinking and dancing and wanted to sleep in, beware the music at the pool was very loud.

"Great resort for anyone!!"
I really enjoyed my stay at the Jaco Best Western--the room was well kept, meals were delicious, pool area spotless, and beach area very nice. Being so close to the town (just a very, very short walk away) made a real plus--enabled one to get out, walk about, and see/learn more about the country.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Less than 1 star"
This hotel is awful. I read reviews that said the rooms were old, but they are falling apart. The beds are horribly uncomfortable. The air conditioning is in the window so it blows right onto the bed and cannot be adjusted. The bathroom was filthy. And to make matters worse there was dance music and a marching band until 1am on a Wednesday! We couldn't […] sleep and the kid in the room next to us was screaming. The food was below average. Think of what you can make the most of for cheap- pasta and sauces. The pool is only okay. The one nice thing is that this is a beachfront property and the grassy area by the beach is lovely, as is the beach itself. The hotel is also not right in town so you need to walk. And if you try and check in before 3pm they turn you away at the gate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mediocrity on a nice beach"
Good location, beautiful beach, and close to town for nightlife and shopping. The mattress was hard, outdated furnishings, and terrible pillows.

"Run-down property, spotty service"
When I checked in, the front desk person told me nothing about the property--where this all-inclusive resort has meals served in different places when the guest count is low. You have to pay $3 per day for the safe in the room (!? old fashioned-key you have to ask and pay for). Laundry isn't actually picked up from your room when you put the "pick up […] my laundry" card on your door knob. And it took me 10-minutes (and a front desk person who just left me on hold because she did not understand my request) to get someone to understand I needed some laundry picked up for same-day cleaning. They then sent someone right away. My water was turned off, with no explanation... And the front desk person did not help - said she would call back, but did not. I had to call back again to have it addressed. It was eventually turned back on, with no explanation--and the water was BROWN when it first came out of the faucets. I was on the top floor and there was work being done on the roof above my room, early in the morning. It's away from the main area in town, which could be good, but not during slow season. The bartenders and food servers were very good and there were a couple of gentlemen at the front desk who were VERY helpful, but overall, I do not recommend this place.

"Great location, helpful staff, safe hotel"
I stayed a week here in July 2012 and couldn't be more pleased! While its not a 5 star resort, it does offer everything you need for an enjoyable, comfortable stay. The staff was honest and courteous. The rooms were always cleaned properly. The breakfast was great, although it was pretty much the same thing every day. I felt safe while there and will […] definitely return if I have the opportunity. This hotel is in a great location. Thank you. Pura Vida! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good value"
This place is a great deal for what you get - beachfront, a quick walk to town, free breakfast buffet (a highlight... it was excellent!), clean and safe. The decor is pretty dated, but still in good shape. I would definitely recommend this Best Western and will stay here again if I come back to the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very tired. Rooms very basic and needs refurb badly. Beds are AWFUL. Pool ok. Food is terrible...had the worse nachos ever there....can't say what the meat was but it didn't taste like beef.....plastic chairs in the room. Good thing was it is on the beach but far away from anything. Security good service ok....Internet in room 301 didn't exist...really […] is a z2 star hotel at a push.

"Meet traveler needs"
The pool was noisy all day and I didn't like the music. This resort seems to be geared toward families and so young travelers like myself feel unserved. One major inconvenience was during the last 2 nights of our stay when NONE of the ice machines in the hotel worked and the front desk/room service said there was no way to get ice to me in the room. […] The front desk people also seemed content with the bare minimum of service; not a great experience to cap off an otherwise wonderful Costa Rican vacation Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Western Jaco, Costa Rica"
The hotel needs some work. Pool needs to be cleaned better. One day it looked like parts of a diaper floating in it and I spoke to life guard and he didn't care. there is a small bridge over part of the pool,it needs to be cleaned and painted. One evening the lights went out. Not the hotels fault but as it got dark very very few of their emergency lighting […] worked. In the day light you could see it was in place. Stair wells were pitch black, walkways dark, only 2 at the bar area worked. People walked around useing their cell phones like flashlights. forget the beach if that is what you are going there for. Yuck. The good part it is a very short walk into town, the bar and the people working there were very nice. Great view of the the sunset. It is probably the best you are going to find in the little town. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice 3 star hotel with solid basic ammendities"
I stayed with my two children at this hotel for spring break-4 days and 3 nights. I found it to be a fun location that was clean, easy to navigate and safe. My favorite parts were the view from the taller building, the warm pool and non-crowded beach front. Our room was clean, had a great view, comfortable beds and all the basics. We are very use to […] traveling to Latin America on vacation so we had reasonable expectations. This hotel had a rather vigilant gate guard and we noticed an occassional guard with flashlight at night walking the grounds and one at the beach front. The staff was younger at the front desk and helpful. The beach is just fine, there are some small rocks along beaches in this region, so small children might like swim shoes on. The waves are notable so I did keep the kids close but it was managable and we got to watch some great surfers while we stayed in the smaller waves. This beach was enjoable as there are virtually no trinket sellers, just a few services like surfing or horseback riding offer politely a ride. The breakfast buffet was great for us, scrambled eggs, pancakes, some mexican fare, ceral, fruit, etc. This is a nice basic 3 star hotel with a warm pool. If you can get a discounte rate- I would try it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great Hotel for the price. Good service. They go the extra mile. Will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best Western, Jaco, Costa Rica"
Hotel was better than the guidebook rating. I didn't find either old or threadbare. Perhaps it had been freshened up. The staff were friendly and its location directly across from the bus drop off to and from San Jose was very convenient. Very family oriented and popular with Costa Rican families.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved this hotel experience!"
The tour desk was very helpful in setting up surf lessons. Great happy hour, great breakfast. Nice beach front.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Beach Location"
We stayed at the BW Jaco Beach location over the busy Christmas season, but the staff made sure we felt like our every need was met. It has a great location just outside of town and right on the beach. We could walk into town with ease and when we were tired from shopping we caught a cab for just $2.00 a ride not a person! On New Year's Eve they had […] a fabulous party with fireworks and dancing. The breakfast buffet every morning was delicious with fresh fruit and a combination of American and Costa Rican favorites. I was quite surprised how good the buffet was and that it is included in your room price. They had everything you could ask for like pancakes, cereal, eggs and ham. The only problem we experienced during our stay was sketchy WI-FI service, sometimes it worked sometimes it did not, but you are on vacation! We were also pleasantly surprised that they gave us free long distance calling to the United States. All in all a great vacation experience!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
