Morgan's Cove Resort & Casino is a great choice for your vacation in Jaco. It truly is a solid 3 star resort and will be a 4 star as they continue to do their upgrades. As other Trip Adviser contributors suggested... An upgrade to Beach Front Rooms makes the stay even better ... the modest upgrade cost is well worth... More

We chose Morgan's Cove for its location on the beach and its price, far cheaper than similarly sited hotels in Jaco. But before we move on: You must stay in the beachfront rooms. They're a bit more expensive than the cheapest rooms in the high-rise but there is NO COMPARISON. We stayed in one of those rooms for 1 night,... More

My wife and myself just got back from a well deserved holiday at the Morgans Cove Resort and Casino. We had a great time there with all the friendly staff at the resort. We upgraded to the ocean view area with the help of Shannon who was very friendly and informative for area interests. You could watch the waves crashing... More

In the middle-class hotels, Morgan's Cove is excellent. The personnel is exquisite and very helpful, the rooms are clean, simple, with air-conditioning, full TV channels (never seen such a large offer in the regular offer), the buffet has variety and is of good quality. When you have an all-inclusive offer (which is very very cheap), you also have access to... More

Let's start by saying, that I have travelled a lot to mostly three star places so I can easily compare this to the others. I have to say that I loved Costa Rica! It was fabulous, and we didn't stay at the resort unless to sleep or unwind. I booked with Nolitours and explained that I would take any room... More

This hotel is basic with clean rooms with hair dryers and coffee makers, adequate food and great staff and great location. It is not for people who want lots of organized activities, fantastic food and all modern amenities. It has a good (slightly short) tennis court. The beach is for surfing and the hotel has boogie boards for rent. There... More
