Nestled in the best neighborhood of Jaco is Villa Creole. Small hotel that provides rooms with kitchenettes. Very clean and comfortable. Staff is awesome and speak English, Spanish and French! Beautiful pool and courtyard area! Family hotel and not for the party so you can be assured of a quiet night!

This hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood only 15 minutes walk to downtown Jaco. It was very clean (the maids do a good job & I enjoyed the towel art!). The grounds and pool are well cared for. Recommend they invest in sun umbrellas. Nini and owners are friendly and provided all we asked for (needed extra pillows). The breakfast was a dissapointment. We would have liked cereals, artisan bread (rather than plain sliced loaf), butter instead of margarine and better jams. The fresh fruit was good. Also there did not appear to be tea available. It was nice to have kitchen facilities in the room. We made our own breakfast on day 2 of our two night stay. We recommend this hotel to others and hope the owners respond to our feedback by improving their breakfast for future guests.

From the moment you enter the property at Hotel Villa Creole, your dream begins. Starting with your greeting from Alda(hostess)or the property manager, owner, gardener, or whomever you come in contact with. Imagine the nicest people you will ever meet and then add to that the most gorgeously landscaped tropical grounds to your serene(air conditioned) cabana. I couldn’t possible put into words the incredible experience I had last week(September 25-27th 2017). It is the rainy season and we( my husband and I) were hoping for more rain. The weather could not have been any more perfect. I came to Costa Rica with my husband to see his family and we just by lucky chance booked a couple nights at Hotel Villas Creole. What an unexpected pleasure. An absolute serendipity. Alda’s husband also gives private waterfall and rainforest / zip lining tours. We didn’t have time because we were so busy with family but I would suggest to everyone to experience a day with Adrian( Alda’s husband). Also, the one day we had to relax all we wanted to do was experience the peace and serenity of Villas Creole. There are only 10 units and the Mountain View’s are spectacular. There is a local Soda( Costa Rican Diner) a few blocks away from the hotel. The food was incredible and very cheap. $8 for a Coca Cola a huge piece of fresh fish(delicious!) rice, beans, plantains, cucumber salad and cole slaw. I barely finished. Only did out of respect. The beach at Jaco is great for surfing! There are calmer white sand beaches a short distance away, which I would suggest taking a taxi. Costa Rican’s know and understand driving there. I live and drive in Jersey City, NJ USA, right outside of NYC and I would never drive in Costa Rica. Don’t bother driving in Costa Rica. The local buses are comfortable clean and the ride through the mountains is gorgeous. I would be happy to explain in more detail all that this gem of a spot has offer. I wish I could buy the whole thing. It was dreamy enough at Villas Creole to never leave the Property. If you are in Jaco Beach, you have to book at this place. I am revived, refreshed and forever thankful for the most incredible experience I have had in a long time. Thank you Alda, the manager, the owner, gardener and room stewardess! You brought me Heaven for 3 days! Sounds short but it changed me forever. Thank you and I have to gooxox Wayne Conahan and Alex Chavarria. Jersey City,NJ.

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. The staff are the best-make you feel like family, and they speak perfect English. They arrange for any trips, excursions. The grounds are very beautiful, and the ambience is quiet and peaceful. The rooms are spotless clean, and it is nice having a kitchen. The breakfast provided is excellent, and you are greeted by fresh flowers every morning. The walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops is very short. If you come to Jaco, stay here. It is friendly, intimate and beautiful, worth way more than the price!

I took my three daughters hear for a week since the hotel was in a quiet neighborhood yet close to the Academia Tica Spanish school and a number of shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is very charming with a beautiful pool and comfortable rooms yet it was only about a 15-20 minute walk to the beach. A great place to stay in Jaco.

Hotel villa creole is a jewel of a place. The family owned/run hotel is clean, well kept and staffed with friendly people. The room was great especially for the price. Two queen beds and a full kitchen with daily room service. Anything I needed they helped me with even gave me a ride into town one day. The hotel is located close enough to town and the beach that you can walk but far enough away so that you can have some peace and quiet. This was my second trip to Jaco Costa Rica. In my future trips I'll definitely be staying at Hotel Villa Creole.

The best part of our trip to Jaco. A clean safe comfortable home base go exploring and the best place to call home!!! The pool was warm and clean. The owners are great people and the staff is friendly. The rooms were clean and there wasn't anything we needed that wasn't supplied...

We recently spent part of our honeymoon at Hotel Villa Creol. We fell in love with this place. The rooms were affordable, comfortable, and private. The kitchenette was a nice treat allowing us to cook some of our meals. The food in the restaurant was delicious with huge portion. We especially loved the pool. The staff was friendly and so helpful (even when we ended up with a flat tier.) We loved that it was off the beaten path from Jaco wild night life but still close enough for us to walk down to join in or go to beach. We will be back to Jaco again and we would never dream of staying anywhere else. Thanks for everything. Hello to Baloo and the kitties.

We stayed a week at Villa Creole, large room with a full kitchen Two separate sleep areas nice private grounds fresh fruit and cooked to order eggs the staff is wonderful and you can book your tours right at the villa no need to go off site,about a 10/15 min walk to the beach or main strip, would recommend to friends and will stay here again.

We spent a couple of days at the Villa Creole and really enjoyed our time there. The grounds are beautiful, nice pool and well-appointed rooms. The staff is very helpful and housekeeping includes some nice touches to greet you on arrival. The hotel is a good jumping off place for visiting Manuel Antonio park as well as the rest of the area around Jaco. The hotel is about a 15 min walk to the beach and main strip of Jaco. Unlike other hotels on our trip, Creole gives you plenty of towels. Pros: nice rooms, good AC, kitchenette with large fridge, comfortable beds Cons: none for this property. We didn't want to leave!
