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.

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 The tiny rooms here are very outdated with a rickety, noisy air conditioner.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.

Great hotel and location!

We stayed two nights at this hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. Great location and safe parking lot with a guard and gate.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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..
