Most of the advertising and reviews would have you believe this is an up market establishment a resort, but don't be fooled by the hype as I was. I paid $121 for one night's stay, never again. If you like dogs, dog crap, screaming whining children, constant boom boom music at the pool, noisy old air conditioning units, breakfast that... More

We are sorry that we have to charge a fee for Airport Shuttle, however; there are costs such as the driver, pay tolls and fuel that cannot be covered because our rates are very affordable. Thank you for bringing to our attention the rusty top of the air conditioner we are an ocean front resort so there is a lot... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Morgan's Cove from February 2 to February 16, 2012 all-inclusive. Although only rated as a 3 star hotel, it far exceeded our expectations. The location of the hotel in Jaco Beach and the ocean view at meal time was spectacular. The sunsets were breathtaking. The condition of the beach and swimming conditions were... More

We had a great time at this hotel. There is not a lot of choice at the buffet, but it's always good. Our room was cleaned everyday. Lots activities to do: Crocodile excursion, canopy tours at Los Suenos, Coffée plantation near Poas volcano, Isla Tortuga, Monteverde, Arenal volcano...About 85-140$ each. Possible to walk to town in 10 minutes to buy... More

I had the best time at Morgan's Cove. My room was super clean and close to the beach. The food was great and I felt like the had a good selection of different things to eat. This was good for me because I am usually a picky eater. As a matter of fact, one time the manager even told the... More

We have spent an enjoyable week in Jaco. Total cost for both of us was ridiculously low $1,338.65. That included our flight, transfers from and to the airport, hotel room, all inclusive food and local alcohol package and all the taxes including Costa Rica departure tax. We find it difficult to understand most of the complaints. 1. Location: This property... More

It is an ok place for the price. We had the same buffet all week, but everything was good. New hotel for international customers, it was a hotel for the locals. I am not sure that all the staff is happy about these changes, they don not smile much. One very very nice guy called Francesco does a wonderful job.... More

My husband and I went there for an all inclusive vacation (1 week). We paid 750 $ (including flights, transportation from/to airport, food and drinks). Since it was very cheap, I cannot complain too much, but I have to admit that the rooms are quite old and smell weird, there were a couple of bugs as well (but hey, it's... More

this hotel has room for improvement. Room wasnt terrible; Smelled musty and dank but ours was close to the beach so it made it more tolerable. I thought the hotel staff was not at all friendly. Maybe if you were a local but certainly not to us. The reception desk as well as everyone in the casino did not smile... More
