You can do better than this one.

The hotel feels cramped in every respect. The room we stayed in was dark. The swimming pool is small, and enclosed, and sees very little or no sunlight. The walk to the beach is just long enough to be a nuisance. We ended up moving to another hotel just down the road, on the beach, with a beautiful beach bar, swimming pool, and beachfront, and all this for only $20 more per night. I would not recommend The Poseidon Hotel as a good choice to stay in Jaco.

Nightlife hint

In Jaco, get a hotel that is directly on the beach.

Great location

Would recommend Fri, Jun 27, 2014
Great location, in the center of everything. 1/2 block from beach or strip. Nothing fancy but nice and clean hotel. Didn't eat at the restaurant other than the free breakfast, which is a nice selection of tropical fruits, juice and coffee. Perfect starting meal for the heat there.

Posiden hotel both good and bad.

Would not recommend Tue, Feb 11, 2014
The hotel staff and restaurant were excellent. I would be carefull ordering anything from the upstairs sports bar. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RECEIPTS showing that you paid your bill, I was charged twice for a dinner bill that I paid in cash and the bartender also charged it to my room. When I went to check out I had a food/drink bill for $43 that I had to pay even though I had not signed the bill charging it to my room. I will not return to this hotel.

The hotel is a smaller building a short walk to the beach and shops. The rooms are clean and the staff is very helpful. The food at the restaurant is very good.

Worth the Stay

Would recommend Wed, Dec 11, 2013
Ou room included two beds, a balcony, air conditioning, fridge, hot water and a safe. We couldn't really ask for much more at the price we paid. The pool was nice, never busy but mostly shaded from any sunlight. There's no ocean view but its less than two minutes to walk from the beach and it's right in the center of the main area of Jaco Beach. I suggest leaving your key at the front desk when you go out, they'll hold it for you so you don't need to worry about it. Breakfast every morning was fruit, juice and bread which was perfect for us. The bar/restaurant area upstairs was a wonderful place to sit in the evening, it's a beautiful view and they play football games! With only about 15 rooms we loved the atmosphere of this place. Highly recommended.

Great hotel recommendation!

Would recommend Sun, Jan 16, 2011
The Poseidon has small rooms, but quite comfortable. Nice little pool and the staff is friendly. The restaurant is incredible with a tuna filet that will knock your socks off!! Seriously, it is that good! My girlfriend and I ate there 4 nights out of our 7 day vacation. There is a tour company called Jaco360, which is located right around the corner from the hotel on the main drag. The owner is a gringo, he is a very cool guy loaded with tons of valuable info. They offer a discount card which saves you a few bucks here and there throughout the town.

Great location - everything else wasn't

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 27, 2009
We booked ahead and paid in advance for 5 days - big mistake. Don't let "American owned and operated" fool you. Beds were very firm (hard), smoking everywhere (poolside, restaurant, in and out of rooms), toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months (hoping it was just rust), the final straw was some animal crawling in the ceiling or on the roof. Great location by the beach, but this area of Jaco is very reminiscent of Daytona Beach in full Spring Break swing. In the one night we stayed at Poseidon, we were approached 3 times within a block of the hotel by "weed or nose candy" dealers. This is not a relaxing Costa Rican beach area if that's what you are looking for. Learn from our $520 mistake - go on to Manuel Antonio and skip this place.

Time saver

Drive right past Jaco to Manuel Antonio.

Happy in Jaco

Would recommend Sun, Jul 12, 2009
My best friend and I went on vacation to celebrate turning 30! We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Poseidon. Pros >> The room was cozy. >> Very close to the beach >> The food was GREAT. A lil expensive but worth the money. 2 for 1 at lunch. >> The staff was EXCELLENT. They were very helpful and friendly. They helped us arrange our daytime activities. Con >> Housekeeping didn't come to the room regularly. We had to go the front desk about it a few times. They apologized and said they were short-staffed.

Money saver

Take a taxi to-from the airport. The hotel shuttle is $100 and a taxi is $50-70.
