I loved this boutique hotel. Its nestled right in the middle of lush foliage which gives you a sense of tranquility from the moment you enter the property. Laura, the owner, is extremely pleasant and accommodating. The breakfast that is provided daily was great. It felt as though I was staying at a family members vacation home rather than in a hotel. […] I would highly recommend renting a car, as parking is free. Overall, if I ever return to Jaco beach, I would absolutely stat here again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Hotel - but no restaurant"
Beautiful modern small 10 room hotel. They serve a great cooked breakfast and have a beautiful swimming pool. Aimed more at Costa Rican families, as each room has a full kitchen and 3 beds, but no desk, table, comfortable chair or sofa. The rooms are large but strangely furnished. Since they do not have a restaurant you have to drive 15 minutes of more […] for dinner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Puntillo Montain & Ocean"
The service was absolutely exceptional, they could not have been better. Breakfast was ok but satisfying. Our only issue was the beds and bath. The mattresses were extremely firm and we are not use to that so our rest was not good. The bath was small but the shower was great. Otherwise, a very nice facility and private. We felt at times we had the place […] to ourselves. They also set up a tour for us which we really enjoyed. We did feel it was priced a little high. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Hotel Experience I Have Ever Had!!!!"
Hotel Pumilio surpassed all expectations. The rooms were beautifully decorated, and the beds were so comfortable! We had an outdoor patio w/ a kitchen, and plenty of room. The shower was amazing as well! Great after a hot day walking around Jaco. The pool was so relaxing and peaceful, and w/ the jungle view all around us, we felt that we were in our […] own private paradise. What made our experience so wonderful, was the staff. Everyone who works there is extremely friendly and no matter what request we had, large or small, they were eager to help. The experience was hands down, one of the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend this hotel. Pura Vida!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to disconnect from the world!"
Excellent attention from the staff, the friendliest place I have ever been to, they were always waiting to help. The hotel was very clean, very nice middle size pool and great place for family. They even took our meal to our terrace every day without extra charge. Only point to be better are the beds, which are a little to hard on your back. Make them […] softer and you will be in paradise. I will book from them in the near future, it is like your own private ranch with staff. Not to close to the beach nor the stores, but if you don't mind driving 5 minutes, you get there.

Awesome hotel. This hotel is a hidden gem. Very small boutique hotel, with exceptional service. We were earlier than 200 PM for checkin and were allowed to check in right away. Room was big, and walking out from our room to the pool was incredible. I think we only saw two other people while at the hotel, and never at the pool, so we felt like we had […] the place to ourselves. Really quiet grounds as well. Highly recommend staying here for your trip to Jaco. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Quiet out of the way location - beautiful setting - great staff! Loved the breakfast. Fountains in a tropical rainforest setting. Would go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel: romantic and quiet."
Nice hotel located out of town. Huan Carlos gives excellent service. Rooms very clean: great for romantic weekend or family event. One disadvantage is the food: breakfast is poor for tourists and other food is only with delivery from expensive restaurants. Car is a must.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Intimate Hotel"
We were so impressed with El Paso de las Lapas - everything was just wonderful. The service was great and felt so personal and thoughtful - they were waiting up for us even with our post-midnight arrival, and even had a complimentary snack basket for us in the room. The rooms are very comfortable with nice decor and the patio and outdoor kitchens are […] just wonderful! All of the staff were very attentive to our needs and were such nice people to get to know. I wish we had more than just the two days to spend at the hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Little oasis...but noisy"
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights (Fri - Sun). We really liked the boutique style hotel, our room and the balcony/kitchen facility facing the jungle, however this is not a romantic spot, although it certainly can be. Jaco beach draws locals/tourists each weekend to the area and the open concept kitchen and pool are ideal for families. With such close […] quarters and openness and the LOUD pool waterfall, it wasn’t until after the mass exodus on Sunday and security turned off the waterfall that we could relax and enjoy the balcony, pool and sounds of the jungle. Bliss! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Très bon séjour"
Hotel de très bon standing. A taille humaine. Très belles chambres donnant directement sur la piscine via petite terrasse. Excellent choix à refaire sans hésitation. Points d'amélioration: Petit déjeuner standard pour le Costa Rica, on aurait aimé plus de choix et d'originalité. Pas de volets ou de rideaux vraiment occultants dans les chambres de plus […] si vous êtes au RDC au niveau piscine vous pouvez être dérangés par les bruits d'autres clients profitant de la piscine.

"IMPRESIONANTE OASIS EN MEDIO DE LA SELVA"
EL HOTEL ES ESPECTACULAR, PRECIOSO, RODEADO DE SELVA Y CON UNA PISCINA Y ZONA DE TUMBONAS PRECIOSA. LAS HABITACIONES MUY GRANDES Y DECORADAS CON GUSTO. TIENEN TERRAZA MUY CÓMODA Y CON VISTAS PERFECTAS. ECHAMOS DE MENOS UN GIMNASIO QUE SEGURO QUE EN ALGÚN RINCONCITO LES CABÍA. EN RECEPCIÓN MUY AMABLES.

"klein und fein und abseits vom Trubel"
Das Hotel liegt in ruhiger Umgebung. Der Service ist sehr gut. Witzig ist die kleine, sehr gut ausgestattete Küche außen beim Balkon. Mit dem eigenen Auto ist die Entfernung nach Jaco und zum Strand kein Problem. Taxen kosten ca. 8 Dollar. Dieses Hotel ist für uns 100 % weiterzuempfehlen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best hotel in Jaco"
03/12/14 Jamil W Washington, District of Columbia, United States
Perfect little boutique hotel with nice rooms, pool area, beautiful nature, and service. I would definitely recommend this hotel for couples for a quiet getaway. When I go back to I will be staying here again.
"Wonderful little hotel"
02/28/14 Dadi A Vero Beach, Florida
Great hotel with fantastic pool area. Beautiful nature all around. Very good rooms that sleep five comfortably. Very nice Costa Rican breakfast. Hotel staff very helpful. Although they don't have a restaurant, they do go into town and get food from a number of different restaurants for you.
"Wonderful Stay for the whole family"
02/24/14 Lena S Boston, Massachusetts
We had a wonderful time at Hotel Pumilio. We spent the first couple of days or our vacation there and loved it. The owners and staff make you feel welcome. There's a great pool and the rooms are clean and modern. We had access to our own kitchenette with a fridge, stove and microwave. We enjoyed everything about our stay.
"Great Little Hotel"
02/22/14 DantheJet1 Montreal, Canada
We had a fantastic first three days of our Costa Rica vacation at Pumilio, the room was big the balcony was great to sit, eat, listen to nature and relax after a day at Jaco beach. To bad I booked late and couldn't stay longer. Great Staff!!! We will be back
The Hotel Pumilio is a small, hospitable boutique hotel in the hills above Jaco. The location is preferable over being right in Jaco, as the town is a little dumpy. Pool and service was great. The service overall was fantastic and the owner, Laura, was very nice. The only complaint was that the spa services we received were simply average.

This a great little hotel located just outside of the hustle of the beach area but still close enough to be easily accessible. The staff are excellent, the rooms are big beautiful, it’s very cozy, very clean and modern. The kitchenettes are fully equipped. The pool area is a great place to just chill out and enjoy the tropical quiet setting. The breakfast is served in a very relaxed environment, good food and good people. Laura the Owner as well as all the staff helped to make this a wonderful experience for my family and I.. we will DEFINITELY be coming back here.. They even had bicycles for me to do so morning fitness and look around before the family got up ;-) nice touch.. I highly recommend this place for anyone who prefers to be just a little off the beaten track and in a beautiful tropical environment.
"Beautiful hotel with Amazing staff"
02/20/14 Sedona-Joel Sedona, Arizona
Small 10 room luxury B & B with the friendliest staff we have ever encountered. What stopped me from giving them 5 stars is: 1. Beds are very hard and uncomfortable. 2. They have no restaurant. (They do serve a wonderful cooked breakfast). 3. The rooms have no desk or even a comfortable chair or sofa.
02/20/14 Annehase23 Munich, Germany
Friendly staff, clean, beautiful and very spacious rooms, beautiful pool area, wonderful area in which you can see a lot of animals. It is just a 10 minutes Ride by car to get to the Nationalpark. Hotel is located at a little road- so really calm. The only noises you will hear are from animals
"Friendly, Welcoming, and close to activities"
02/17/14 Jason A Encinitas, California
We have stayed here once before last March. This time in February and it is a peaceful retreat from Jaco as others have mentioned. Good sized pool, ample space in the air-conditioned and ceiling fanned rooms, and nice outdoor kitchen on the patio. Everything is clean and an enjoyable place for couples or families. We (2 adults and 2 teenagers) never felt crowded and the staff is wonderful. I have been traveling to Costa Rica for 25 years and this place is in my Top 10. Pura Vida!
"No disappointments at this spectacular boutique inn"
02/15/14 surfer6 seattle
My girlfriend and I just returned from 11 wonderful days and nights at the Pumilio and we could not be more pleased with our experiences there. Laura (the owner) and her husband have created a private, secure 10 unit retreat a short 5 minute drive from the bustle of Jaco Beach that is both visually and sensually stunning from the moment you enter the private, gated drive. The staff is superb, with every request from booking first class tours to ordering meals handled with ease and professionalism. Laura does a marvelous job of making the inn feel like a home away from home (their spectacular mountain estate is next door), and we enjoyed many conversations with her and the staff about Costa Rica and our time there as we sat during the balmy evenings around the pool. Do not miss this absolute gem if you are looking for a tranquil oasis close to so many things to do. You will be in the very capable hands of a couple that truly understands the meaning of hospitality. Pura Vida, Laura and staff. Thank you for making this one of the the most memorable trips of our lives.
