The entire layout was unexpected annd a pleasant surprise

The line was long. They hardly speak English. My shower head was broken and I asked them fix it but they didn't. They gave me just two towels at the checkbout and one of them was for pool. The room location was so bad. The location of the hotel is not what they described in websites. The safe in room didn't have a key so I had to get in line again to get it.

It was a great choice, everything was great except the wifi did not work in our room, we had to go outside to a pavillion to do our daily laptop things, that also kept us from streaming movies in english in our room., everything else was great, it came with a hot breakfast daily & coffee, they brick oven pizza's that are great....

We’ve been staying hear regularly for about 1 year when we visit Jaco, friendly staff, nice huge pool and very family oriented facility.

The hotel is average, old facilities, the playground area needs some maintenance (painting,cleaning), the rooms are ok, the pool needs restoration (painting mostly). Three things I didn't like about the hotel were these: the next morning, when we got to the restaurant for breakfast, the old Italian guy was not happy when we asked for an additional napkin (??)... Also, the same guy complained when I filled my cooler with ice from the ice machine (they only have 1 ice machine for the hotel itself) - he wanted me to make me feel bad as a guest... pretty bad experience. And finally, they have this guy who tries to sell you a vacation package (membership/time share??) who is always after you, saying hi, checking on you, but his final goal is to have you seat for 45 mins to listen to their presentation... pretty bad experience also...

Al llegar a la rescisión para realizar el ingreso al hotel tuvimos unos cuantos inconvenientes en la reserva ya que la información no era la misma de la reservacion realizada por Internet esto debería mejorar ya que uno va confiado esperando que le den lo que uno reservo al final nos resolvieron y no uvo mayores contratiempos,Muy bonitas las instalaciones,la atencion,la abitacion,Muy dinámico el hotel.

Good afternoon Mr. Harold thank you for your comments because we have improved these in quality day by day. On the other hand if we would like to emphasize much in the aspects that did not like in your stay: 1 - With regard to the correct ice machine we have only one since it is a service that is given courtesy so that they can either take to the room or have a cold drink, they are not machines to load the coolers of The guests given so the hotel does not allow the coolers in the pool area or in their facilities. 2-The older adult of the restaurant is not that he is bad tempered given his age advanced in a very normal person helpful and very willing to collaborate, maybe he misinterpreted the behavior of the gentleman but we are sure at no time did it with the intension of Make him feel bad 3-On the other hand the guys of holiday plan although they offer super nights their work is to try to make our guests feel at home (although the people accept the talk with them of 45 minutes, no one is forced to listen) . Our facilities are in improvement to offer a comfortable stay to our guests. We look forward to a second chance to visit us.
