Located just 60 minutes from San Jose in one of the most tourist developed areas of the country: only 5 minutes (3 miles) from the beaches of Herradura and Jaco. At these beaches you can enjoy easy access to more than 80 restaurants, the best supermarkets in the country, biggest variety of tours and activities offered, golf course and the marina at Los Suenos and access to both the national parks - Manuel Antonio and Carara, as well as the diverse islands and beaches of the Central Pacific. Our location, away from the noise of downtown and the dangers of being right on the beach, has a spectacular view of the dense virgin mountain that constitutes a path for the macaws and toucans and allows you to enjoy versatile vacations filled with adventure, romance, family, relaxation and rest in a private atmosphere.

The hotel offers as a main product an .exclusive and customized lodging service that is unique in the zone. With a wine glass and a basket of snacks in the room and a customized Welcome card, (these details are very liked by the guests as something unexpected upon their arrival, we do not advertise it anywhere, but we request the collaboration of the names of the people who will be in the room to be able to make the card) we will welcome the guest to our facilities.

We offer something different along the lines of luxury, the attention paid to tourist sustainability and a highly customized service with care in detail. The guests will be able to enjoy our complete typical breakfast (fruits, cereals, breads, cheese, eggS, and our typical gallo pinto) in our thatched roof rancho or in their room without schedule or additional cost and will be received with details that demonstrate our commitment to quality. Also we offer free transport to the nearby beaches and a "food concierge" to resolve lunch or dinner needs, we can also go do their supermarket shopping if they so request.

Always thinking about their greater comfort and well-being, all our 10 luxury suites have their own terrace and a kitchen totally equipped for 6 people (with refrigerator, 2 disk electric stovetop, toaster oven, microwave, coffeemaker, pots, etc.) and in addition they will not have to worry about the basic things for the use about the kitchen such as coffee, sugar, Splenda, napkins, salt, pepper, dish soap, paper towels, etc.

Our large and luxurious suites with luxury furnishings, have 2 queen beds and a sofa bed, air conditioning, LCD T.V., 100% drinkable water throughout the hotel, mini bar, safe, hairdryers, laundry service. Our services also include WiFi without any additional cost and daily housekeeping.

Enjoy our professional SPA surrounded by vegetation and bordering the river, two cozy swimming pools with a waterslide, jacuzzi jets and waterfall surrounded by two decks of natural teak with comfortable chairs to sunbathe in. This is next to our thatched roof rancho and BBQ area, all at the disposal of the clients and with all the facilities for their convenience. Also they can relax by taking a long walk or taking a rest in the hiking trail in the Private Forest Reserve that surrounds the property.

We have information and sell tours to the National Parks, beaches, canopy, surf, volcanoes, islands, fishing, snorkeling and more that are offered in the area

get snacks and drinks at the market down the hill. there is not a restaurant on site so if you want something to eat you will need to drive pretty far unless you have stuff on hand.

Breakfast was ok! You can't walk to the beach! Too far! You need to have a car!

First visit to Costa Rica

Hotel Pumilio helped to make our first trip to Costa Rica perfect! Laura (the owner) and Adrien (front desk) go above & beyond to help make their guests' stay in this quaint boutique hotel a memorable one. From the personal greeting and glasses of wine awaiting us upon arrival, to the fabulous breakfast each morning, lovely pool & spa areas, and extra efforts made to book day trips for us, we felt pampered and cared for every step of the way! Although downstairs suites open to the pool, we enjoyed the privacy of the 2nd floor and took advantage of the full outdoor kitchen that is on each suite's patio. Each suite (there are only 10 total; 5 up & 5 down) sleeps five comfortably. If you want a relaxing getaway, just a short taxi ride to Jaco (courtesy of Pumilio) and the beach, this is the place for you! We are already planning a return visit!

Be sure to take time to enjoy sitting out back on your patio! Beautiful view of rain forest and so very relaxing. Over morning cups of coffee, we saw scarlet macaws, a toucan, kiskadee, and multiple reptiles!

Great hotel with even better service!

We contacted the hotel by email about a week before our stay to ask about various tours we saw on their website. Laura the owner and Milton in the front desk immediately responded and did a lot of research to find various suppliers offering what we were looking for and arranged everything for us. We were only in Costa Rica for 3 days and wanted to do a lot so were quite picky in the times of the tours to squeeze everything in and Laura and Milton did everything to accommodate us! As for the hotel itself, the rooms were quite large and comfortable each one with it's own terrace/balcony with a kitchen overlooking the pool area and beyond that the rain forest. There are only 10 rooms, so the pool and breakfast were never crowded. We used the hotels spa service for a massage which was in it's own little cabana type room outside which was really well decorated with views and sounds of the forest just outside. The hotel also offers a "gastronomy adventure" service with menus from many Jaco restaurants that can be delivered to the hotel where they then set up our table on our balcony which we really enjoyed. The hotel is only about a 5 minute drive from the center of Jaco, far away enough to avoid the noise and crowds, but close enough to visit easily and the hotel will even cover one roundtrip taxi fare a day to Jaco. Overall everything was excellent at good value, but the service and the people were really exceptional!

Great hotel!

We contacted the hotel about a week before we arrived to ask about the tours and excursions that we wanted to do while we were in Costa Rica. Laura, the owner, and Milton in the front desk responded by email immediately with suggestions and did a lot of research to find different tour operators and give us comparisons and times that the tours were being offered as we were there for only 3 days and wanted to maximize our time. Their suggestions were great and we were very happy with the tours they arranged for us. As for the hotel itself, the rooms were very clean, large and comfortable with terraces that overlooked the pool area and rainforest outside. There are only 10 rooms, so breakfast and the pool never felt crowded. Pumilio also offered delivery from a lot of the Jaco restaurants and set up our table for dinner on our terrace. We also used their spa service where we got massages outside in a beautiful room from where you could see the forest and hear its sounds. The hotel is about a 5 minute drive from the center of Jaco, away from the noise and commotion but close enough to easily visit either with your own car or by taxi (which the hotel will pay for one round trip by taxi into the town per day). We would definitely recommend this hotel to a family or couple looking for great service and comfort at what we thought were pretty good rates for the level of service and comparing to other hotels in the same quality level in the area. Everyone in the hotel went out of their way to satisfy us and always with a smile!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you're renting a car, check with someone who knows the areas in order to calculate the driving time as it can take significantly longer than what google maps will estimate due to the condition of the roads in many parts of the country.

Perfect Oasis!

I cannot say enough excellent things about Pumilio! The owner - Laura - is so kind & accomodating to each of her guests and the location is perfect. I took a (free) cab into downtown Jaco twice and each night ordered from a new restaurant. Laura arranged for me to join a tour of Manuel Antonio National Park & it was great! Only challenge is the transportation to/from the San Jose airport. It was a bit pricey! I got a downstairs room & originally wanted to move upstairs for more privacy. But I quickly changed my mind - walking out my door into the pool was too convenient to pass up. Plus, I made a few new friends & chatted with other guests. Great breakfast every morning in a serene setting. Very much enjoyed my time in Jaco!

Great experience

Everyone was very accommodating and did a good job. There were just noisy guests one night, who had too much to drink, but I guess they were enjoying the experience in their own way! the last morning we did not have hot water but we reported it and they were going to take care of it and thanked us for telling them.
