Perfect for a Family Trip...

Lets start with the Staff they all were awesome when it comes to attending us as their guests, also what I really liked from this hotel is that is a perfect place to go and enjoy a vacation with your family, and that really includes babies and children any ages, because they have a lot of different activities for our kids, its a very family environment.

Nicest place on Jaco beach

The hotel was nice, clean, and one of the better hotels on Jaco's main strip. Had all the american style amenities you would expect in an american hotel. It was nice to stay there after staying at some other more traditional local hotels. Beach was nice. Great for surfing. Nice eggs and pancakes included each morning. This place is beach front, so no crossing a road to get to the beach. Dark sand beach. But still cool. Very safe and secure place to stay. I walked around town from my hotel freely, day and night.

great beach resort

The bus stop was right across the street from the resort so we did not have to take a taxi to get there. The rooms were very clean and set-up well, and had good views of the grounds. Jaco is a humid area and the air conditioning worked great. The hotel is kind of at the end of the main road but the walk towards the restaurants/nightlife is not that far. The beach is a little rocky but the ocean is good for surfing/learning how to surf.

Great place for Americans to stay

I've stayed in a few other local hotels in Costa Rica. And while they were nice this was an American hotel with American amenities. Such as: Coffee maker in the room Free breakfast every morning Room service Thick mattresses Most local hotels, while nice do not offer any of this. The food was good and the service was excellent. This hotel is right on the beach and the beach is beautiful but very rocky in the water and difficult to walk bare foot. 300 yards down the beach near the casino is much better for swimming.

Check the prices before you order anything in a local resturant or bar. Some are very reasonable but others are outragious.

Excellent value & central beachfront loc

Met our special accommodation needs for H/C accessible room near the lobby; no problems with stairs or curbs. Also kindly met our request for a late checkout so I could freshen up after morning meetings. Friendly staff, easy to find location on main road in central Jaco, beachfront, gated/secure hotel and parking. WiFi, etc.

Ok for surfers..

The staff..super friendly..the beds.. awfull.so hard that my husband went into a 3 day back spasm..However the first hotel we stayed at had the same hard beds.. The food..rice and beans and the plantains were delicious..rest average. The beach..great to be right on it..but not a place to do relaxing swimming.. it is a surf beach,,harsh waves,hard gravel sand. Bath running water..hot or cold.. Any excursion costs a bit of money.. restaurants expensive for average food. (the Fish Taco Bar was the best... a must go-to.) The hotel is walking distance to some restaurants.. Hotel felt safe..well guarded.. which I did not realize is all important in Costa Rica. Jaco is not for children..The hotel is..

Good value, clean, quiet, and safe.

I really liked the location. The hotel is right on the beach and you can see and hear the ocean waves. The service was professional and courteous. Nothing to do in town unless you like to drink. Not much shopping or evening activities so make sure if your a solo traveller to bring a good book. Good place to go on day trips around the central pacific region.

There are a variety of restaurants and cafes just outside the hotel about a 5 minute walk, expect to pay prices comparable to the US in general food was expensive unless you go to fast food.
