Also the garden was wonderful!! you could hear the birds in the morning. and our room was big and spacious and very clean. But there was just one but.... all the staff at... More

This was an average stay for me. I'm typically not a harsh reviewer, but due to the hostile nature of one of (who I'm guessing is) the owners, I would prefer not to return to Jacaranda. The location is prime, the garden's are exquisite and the rooms are spacious, clean, and I felt safe. The problem was the tension I... More

I arrived here without a reservation and the staff went out of it's way to accommodate me and make my stay comfortable and pleasant. The room was nice and included a mosquito net. The hotel has a variety of activities including yoga and massage. The cabins surround a lovely garden. The hotel is located about a block or so from... More

Great place to stay. Convenient location, walking distance to town. Wifi connection is fast and reliable. Clean rooms, fans but no a/c. It's a little noisy between rooms. Great budget option for a single traveler on a budget unwilling to stay in shared backpacker accommodation, who is looking privacy and basic clean comfortable accommodation with good wifi.

We sent the following e-mail to the owner: The recepcionist was so rude and she did not want to understand that if no Airbnb confirmation was obtained we could not stay because we needed to use a coupon, there was no way to explain it and be understood, what a pity! No good service at all... And she answered: The... More

We took a trip to Puerto Vuejo, Costa Rica and had a blast staying at this mini resort near the jungle. Excellent price for very good accommodations. The recommendations on tours and food were spot on. My wife enjoyed the yoga area. What a great concept and what a massage at the spa. Highly recommend.

I've stayed at Jacaranda several times and absolutely adore it. It is definitely the gem of the town. The vibe is extremely calm and welcoming, with their clean and cozy rooms surrounding a beautiful garden filled with flowers and trees. I would spend an hour lying in my hammock just taking in all of the beauty around me! The staff... More

The location is good , away from the main street but you can easily walk to the shops and beach. Our room was quite basic but clean. There was no air conditioner, just a fan which struggled with the heat. This also meant you had to leave your windows open and there were plenty of mosquitos (as you would expect... More

Have been here for over 2 weeks and it's time to go. Great place to stay - gated for added security. We have rented the apartment behind the hotel, comfortable, hot water, clean sheets and towels, plus cleaning and laundry service. Vera and her staff have been more than accommodating and I know my kids and granddaughter are in good... More

Average lodge, not hotel, many restrictions and warnings, location for village is not the best if you want to enjoy the night life, rooms small, no air conditioner, no breakfast. Staff OK, helpful. The light in the rooms really poor, was also warned not to use mosquito net, not to use kitchen to cook fish better go to restaurant.
