Good prices and accommodations. The place is secure and near to the beach (5 min). Due to its wood roofs you can hear the noise from other rooms. However, is a good hotel for vacation with family and friends.

I was staying in a dumpy room across town when I discovered Jacaranda on a walk. It was like a jungle oasis. I reserved a room immediately and came back with all my stuff. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the garden is a dream, everything is well taken care of. I wish I could stay longer. It's too bad... More

The three of us arrived about 5minutes before reception closed with NO reservation and Vera(the owner) happily booked us in for the next two nights. The staff are very friendly, happy to tell you where to get the best food, coffee, shopping and the hotel is stunning. Gorgeous gardens, spacious rooms and in a very secure spot.

The place very peaceful. The room was just ok, but the staff was absolutely fabulous. I mistakenly left my credit card in the room and they went out if their way to get it back to me. They were an absolute blessing.

I stayed here three years ago and had a great time. It's quiet, safe, and in a great location, clean and relaxing, and the staff is AMAZING!!! They offer a lot of tips on how to get real deals and are friendly.

Staying at this hotel was a great experience. The staff and owner were very helpful. it's in a prime location. Quiet and so safe. Less than 5 minutes walk to the beach, a short walk to the best local restaurants, and nightclubs. I would definitely stay here again.

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.
