Terraza Del Pacifico Hotel

I would only recommend this hotel to some serious surfers who don't care about paying a lot of money for a terrible experience. This place is run down and falling apart. We arrived to find our room unlocked and smelling a bit like sewage, the beds are uncomfortable and our room was infested with vicious ants. This hotel may have been nice 20 years ago, but it has fallen into serious disrepair since. The service left much to be desired as well.

We had a wonderful stay at Terraza del Pacifico. This is a hotel that grows on you the longer you stay. It is very low-key, nothing fancy. Right on the beach with beautiful sunsets and a nice open air restaurant. The staff is very friendly. Rooms are plain and simple but had everything we needed. The beach is great for surfing but not swimming due to rip tides. There are two pools and Jaco beach is close by with great swimming. Playa Hermosa is quiet area but 10 minutes from the lively town of Jaco. A very Costa Rican hotel with mostly Costa Rican guests, families and couples. If you are looking for an American hotel with lots of American tourists this is probably not the place for you. We were very happy and could have stayed much longer.

Hotel is kind of hard to find, that is my only complaint. There should be a bigger sign at the entrance. Other than that, a great place to spend a few comfortable and fun days directly on the ocean. Good restaurant, very welcoming personnel and the location is very good. The facilities are old, almost a bit vintage, but very clean rooms, and our room had AC, TV and it was basically what we needed for the price we paid. Our kids had a great time surfing. We could not see the sea turtles nest, but I guess it was not the season.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a weeklong stay. Our room featured a large balcony with the loveliest view of the beach. We ate at the restaurant every night. The food was phenomenal and the staff could not have been more welcoming. Our evenings were even more special when greeted and served by such nice people. That also goes for the entire hotel staff. One of my favorite things to do on vacation is to walk thevbeach. With our location- it was effortless and absolutely beautiful. What a gorgeous location!

Beautiful hotel on the beach...relaxing atmosphere, wonderful staff, delicious restaurant and incredible, panoramic beach views. The restaurant is worth a trip alone. The staff is lovely, the food is amazing and the views are unforgettable. Don't miss the sunsets every night!

This hotel realy is a beachfront hotel. It is literally located right on the sand. The best and less crowded beach breaks are right in front of the hotel too. We were also lucky, the swell was steady the entire week. The higlights is those friendly smiles of the staff members, and the kitchen ( restaurant ) is great. Yummy !!! For us this is the best surfing hotel in Costa Rica, and we have been here several times. Fair rates, great service, perfect location, what else did we need.

Had three days left and wanted to relax and I found the perfect place ! I stayed in a double room because I wanted the ocean view . The room was clean and comfortable with AC , free wifi , safe ,fridge and phone. the ocean had a constant collection of surfers and the pool had plenty of lounge chairs to lay back and sun bathe and relax. Jaco was only 10 minutes drive ( 20 minute if you want to pull over in the big pull off down the road and watch the flock of Macaws in the trees above the highway) if you want to be a tourist . I ate mostly at the hotel and found the food and service excellent . Having breakfast with surf rolling in and watching hermit crabs dash around on the beach and birds in the trees perfect

Looking for a place on the beach we wanted a hotel that would make us feel safe, that we could let our teen girls have their own room at without worrying about safety and Terraza Del Pacifico Delivered, her are the Top 10 Reasons we love this palce: 1-Magnificent view of the Ocean from the diner, and upstairs rooms facing the ocean 2-Ocean Waves crashing make for great sleeping backgound noise 3-Restaurant Food Options are very good with no need to leave to eat elsewhere 4-Poolbar in the middle of the pool, enough said... 5-Plenty of palm trees to hang a hammock off and lose yourself in a book 6- Quick access into town with by car or cab taxi service 7- Lots of dining options, but if you can, go to El Avion restaurant, Look at up on tripadvisor 8- Teen Girls loved that they had security guards at the gate and controlled access in and out of the hotel grounds 9- Saw Scarlett Makaws, Green Parrots and Tucans on the property 10- Comfortable Beds and Great Hot Showers

This hotel is just in front of the beach, with a gorgeous view, but the room was not good at all. The beds, and everything at the room and bathroom were very old. A renovation is a must! The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is good.

The hotel does need upgrading, but our room was very basic and clean. We stayed for three nights and it was very quiet and, except for a school party, there was hardly anyone here because it was off season. The staff are very pleasant and Fernando on the front desk was very helpful. The restaurant is right on the wonderful beach and we enjoyed just having a drink and enjoying the views. We definitely would come back.

3 km south of El Arroyo gas station on Jaco Puntarenas
