Not a good hotel. Jan. 2013

I arrived early, so they told me I had to pay an extra $25 "early check in" fee. I was fine with that, but then the room wasn't ready until an hour before normal check in. Although it's supposed to be "all inclusive" they actually have the nerve to charge extra for your room safe. The food was horrible and the hotel quite old and dated. The staff was nice though and the beach beautiful, although most of their beach lounges are cracked or broken.

Beachfront and walking distance to the center of Jaco

The hotel is on pretty extensive grounds with an amazing huge swimming pool, tennis courts, vball net, and beach bar. The hotel also has direct beach access which is great. Walking to the center of Jaco takes about ten minutes and you can either walk on the beach or on the street. The tiny rooms here are very outdated with a rickety, noisy air conditioner. None of the standard rooms have queen or king beds. The biggest bed is a double which is not very comfortable if both of you are tall.

Needs work.

The rooms were ok, pillows were horrible maids were good workers. The food was below average for places i've been. The pool was 3 feet deep and the water was just to warm. I want to cool off i needed to go take a cold shower. Water temp way to high. They had a room to sell ice cream and other snacks, nobody working it.

Over all Jaco Experience

Check in was delayed, mostly because of a holiday weekend.The sign board when we arrived had a $60/per day special with brealfast, that continued through the week, our rate was $86/day. The location at the end of town was good, not too far to any place. Pool was clean and comfortable with a shortage of chairs.We were in what I believe was the older of 2 buildings.It was clean but well used, the maids kept the rooms up well, however the beds and other fixtures need serious upgrades. The breakfast that others raved about was mediocre at best. Never saw a bluberry pancake.Happy hour at bar is good I can vouch for the Pina-Colada's

Expensive and often questionable. Check the side streets for the locals and sufers. Ask questions. the Mexican restuarant accross the street was good food with large portions. My wife and I split a meal twice. A small bakery (panaderia} is about 1/2 block further down the street. same side. bring a small cooler for water and other things.There are several grocery stores for beer water&snacks. Good American Booze is expensive and hard to find. Costa Rican rules allow up to 5 litres for personal use. For short stays, This would be a good choice.

Best Western Jaco Costa Rica

Excellent Hotel for the money. Very clean and well maintained. The power went out a couple of times, but only for a few minutes. Great location right on the beach, close to shops and restaurants. If you are looking for a five star hotel, this is not for you. If you are looking for a nice clean place to stay, this is your hotel.

Best Western, Jaco, Costa Rica, 2012

Room was not ready at check-in. No towels in room after checking in. Had to search out the maids even after calling the front desk to get towels. Service was slow at the front desk. Not enough lounge chairs around the pool and the grass area. The "few" that were available were "reserved" by guests putting their towels and other belongings on the chairs by 8:30 A.M. Free buffet breakfasts and for pay buffet dinners were value for money. Good variety of Costa Rican food. Good quality. Seemed "safe" with front gate guard. Also saw "armed" security guard.

Great Location

Currently there is a lot of remodeling going on in the Hotel. We were awakened at 7am from a jack hammer two floor down. I felt management didn't care about our concerns with the construction noise. It's a good thing that they are beginning to remodel this hotel room, because it is very out dated. The court yard and pool area is very nice. The pictures are much nicer that it really is.
