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.

Disgusting Hotel

Disgusting hotel, mold in the bathroom, rust stains in the shower, tiles missing from the walls, terrible smell. Holes in the walls in the bedroom.The swimming pool looked scarey.We moved to another room which was just as bad,after two nights we could not stand it any longer so we moved to an other hotel. I have stayed at many BW hotels and always been comfortable, never again!

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!

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.

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.

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

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

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.

Get what you pay for

If you used to the all inclusive of Cancun or punta Cana you will be disappointed not really worth it and food is below average, better of staying in a different hotel rooms had no fridge very outdated and going out for meals in town also recommended food provided in the package not very good and very small selection .

Hmmm

Internet and phone was down most of the time. Food was not always available. One of the a/c barely worked. Food itself was OK. Bar staff was great. Not the best value overall but not sure what else is in Jaco

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.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Nightlife is not too far away, probably a good 15-20 minutes walk.
