    A nice stay, in a old, worn out hotell..
    The hotel was a old, worn out hotel, that looked like it used to be a luxurious hotel in the 80s. The pool area seemed to be nice for children, all though it was in the same condition as the hotel – old. The staff didn’t speak much English, but despite that, they were all really helpful and went the extra mile. Rooms were clean, but, surprise, old. All in all a good stay with friendly people, breakfast was nice, but the place desperately needs modernization..

    Vacation Nightmare
    Stayed here for my fiancée Birthday. We chose this location because the reviews told us we were very close to the beach and there was a casino and a restaurant on the premises. When we arrived we we're hassled about our party stating that we were to pay an additional $300 USD for a third person when our reservation was for 3 adults. We had booked 7 nights for $642 USD so half of that for 1 person seemed absurd. Once in the room it was the beginning of a horror story. The lights, A/C and Safe didn't work in the first two rooms they brought us to. The third room did have the previous amenities however the hot water didn't work in the shower and the beds were small and extremely hard as well as the mini fridge wouldn't stay cold. The Wifi only worked near the road so we weren't able to access the internet on their property the time we were at the hotel. Restaurant was below average on taste and selections as well as closed early and gave us a hassle with paying with foreign currency even offering a tip. On the plus side Pool was nice with a swim up bar, security guard at the front gate was very accommodating. Not a lot of patrons in the casino but it was fun to play nevertheless. The location is acceptable as there is two convenient stores near by and it was extremely easy to catch a taxi from here. Quiet mornings with birds chirping. Near beach and center of Jaco as well as near the bank.
