The Best Western Jaco Beach Resort is located in the bustling little town of Jaco, in the Central Pacific region of Costa Rica, only two hours away from San Jose, the capital city. The beach resort is the perfect hideaway for those who want to be close to the comforts and services of the hotel but away from city life. In addition to comfortable rooms, the resort has a restaurant, lounge, game room, tennis courts, horseback riding, sport fishing and many other recreational activities. Stop by the tour desk in the lobby to inquire. Daily transportation to San Jose is provided at a nominal fee.

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.

Best hotel on the strip.

This hotel is the best bang for the buck on the whole beach. It is close enough to walk to all of the action, right on the beach. Food is cheap, rooms are fairly clean and the service people are very friendly (although this is the case throughout Costa Rica). I would highly recommend staying here if you like the beach/pool and don't want to pay a ridiculous amount.

Way to go Jaco!

I think this hotel is great, I've been before & will return. The only thing I would change is the BEDS are hard as a rock! Pillows too.

Worst resort I have ever stayed at

Dirt parking lot filled with pot holes, flaking concrete around the pool, rooms badly needing remodeling with old, cracked tile and poorly/slopily applied routing, bed matresses needing replacing, noisy air conditioning unit, food selection and quality poor in the restaurant and bar and worst of all prostitution warnings everywhere -- at the front desk, in the pamplet packet given out at check-in, on the walkway walls and in the room's questbook. All of which provided an appearence of a location of poor quality and NOT a safe to be staying at.

Go to Los Suenos for dinner, skip the restaurants in Jaco. As a matter of fact, just stay at the Mariott in Los Suenos and have a GREAT time!

Old and not well maintained

The room was small, expensive for what it is and old. It looked more of a youth hostel than it did of a hotel, especially for the price charged. I would never return there with a girlfriend because it is simply not clean and just badly maintained.

Right on the Beach

It was set right on the beach great for sunsets.The staff was very friendly and helpful,some even spoke english and if they did not speak english,they would go find someone that spoke english.Our bathroom had just been redone,the tile around the tub looked great,did not like the fact had to pay $3 a day for a key for the safe,the breakfast was great,you had 5 different menus to choose from.On Sunday they have a Breakfast buffet.The location was within walking distance from downtown Jaco,plenty of security around the property even at night.

Great value for your money

The Best Western Jaco has a very friendly staff and the food is great. The breakfest they offer is very good and more then you can eat. The rooms smelled a little musty until the air conditoning was on for a while. This is the third time we have stayed there because of the great value and the location to town.
