Unbelievable place. Truly breathtaking. So relaxing. It is a little out of town but that doesn't matter if you have a car. The breakfast served by the father was very tasty. Julie's father Jean Pierre is super friendly and accommodating. If I owned a place like this in Costa Rica I think my life would be complete! Also , a... More

Travelling with three friends, we were on the backpacker trail around Costa Rica. Whilst this was fun, occasionally you want a quiet spot for reflection and relaxation. Hacienda JJ's offered all of this and more. Set outside Tamarindo (but still easily accessible; 10 mins by car), we found a secluded private villa to unwind and relax in. I'd recommend this... More

We've been here 5 nights and had a quiet and really good time here. The pool is super nice, the staff always helps out if there is an issue. For example the propane bottle in the kitchen did not work as well as the water tab but it was repaired immediately. If you bring a dog - there is plenty... More

We had 2 rooms for 2 nights. It is a convenient starting point for touring the Nicoya Peninsula. It was definitely much better than staying near the airport, but not so easy to find in the dark. We were a couple travelling with 3 teenage girls and we appreciated the use of the poolside kitchen to cook dinner for ourselves.... More

Our stay here was good. On the plus side, the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The property was very peaceful. You get what you pay for, and you are essentially staying in someone's house. The negatives were that breakfast was NOT included (contrary to advertised), and the owners do not speak any English at all. We knew enough French... More

We have spent three nights at Hacienda JJ Bed & Breakfast and loved every minute there. The rooms are very modern with A/C, television, personal fridge and safe, plus a nice balcony. The bed& breakfast is surrounded by a beautiful garden with palm trees and flowers. The pool is very luxury and has even a bar area. What has made... More

Great place to stay, nice rooms,good prices and a beatiful pool with common areas. Thanks a lot to Mr. Javelle for making our stay so pleasant. A great deal if you wanna be in a quiet place near to Tamarindo night life and nice beaches.

After a long trip the arrival to Hacienda JJ was fantastic! The Hacienda was a little bit difficult to find and is not Well known by the taxi drivers, but that's only positive. On this spot you're away of the touristic buzz of Tamarindo.The pictures on the website looked really good, but in real life it's even more beautiful. The... More

Very neat and comfortable room. The pool is great and the big patio is a great and relaxing view. Hacienda JJ is in the middle of all the beaches. You can be in Flamingo in 20 minutes and Avellanas in other 20 the opposite direction. The owner was super friendly and helpful.
