The ‘hotel’ is actually an older style motel with rooms surrounding the pool. The pool is also a club/bar. The club blares music from huge speakers about 10 feet (literally) from you room door. The music plays until 2:00am each night. If you are partying at the bar, that’s fine. If you are in your room trying to sleep, impossible. On a Wednesday night, at mid-nite, with not a single customer at the bar, I asked if they could stop the music. They wouldn’t even entertain the idea. The wait staff was partying. As far as I could tell, I was the only guest. The place had a a lot of construction going on. There is no food on-property. I checked out and moved about 100 feet closer to the beach at the Cocal Hotel/Casino. The room was much nicer, $10 a nite cheaper, it’s a true resort with several restaurants, etc. I tried for a refund. The Blue Marlin referred me to Orbitz, Orbitz refused. While my Jaco trip was otherwise very pleasant, Orbitz and the Blue Marlin failed me entirely. I don’t leave bad reviews generally, but seriously the Blue Marlin is a dump.

I am very sorry to heard that you feel that way , in the property description explain that there is a club on site , also the location of the property is in the very middle of town with noise coming from different directions ,restaurants ,bars ,clubs ..etc etc The property has been fully renovated not too long ago and there is no more construction going anymore. I understand that you were looking for a quiet place but the location of this property the " party" area of the town. Kind regards
