We stayed at this hotel as a stop over from two cottage rentals in Costa Rica. The hotel is conveniently located to everything in Jaco - esp. the beautiful beach. The pool at the beach is quite nice. It's not a fancy hotel but for the budge conscious traveller, this place is excellent. Breakfast is included with your stay which... More

A very nice, local hotel (not a big chain resort). The building seems a bit old, but the rooms are spacious and quaint, and the service and treatment EXCELLENT! They offer an included typical breakfast (eggs and pinto- rice and beans), and limited fruit, coffee and juice. The pool is large and nice. Very homely and nice stay, off the... More

We have stayed there some nights and it is true that we love this hotel. The pool is so fresh and so clean that you want to stay the whole day in it. Rooms are really clean and the staff is always present for you if you need something. The French owner Nicolas gave us some good advice to visit... More

Its been awhile since we stayed here, and it looks like there has been ZERO maintenance and ZERO updates. We stayed here 3 times prior, but have not been to the Jaco area for awhile. We looked back at old pictures at how nice this place used to look. It is so run down now - the paint on the... More

This is a weekend place and they put prices up for it, so I moved on to a different hotel. Pool area great. Good weekday value. Rooms need a lick of paint. Breakfast included was basic Using up the characters to reach 200 - please change this............. Usi

we spent 8 marvelous days. We booked our journey on the last minute without planning anything; we were very lucky to get Aude and Nicolas' advices to do so many visits. They gave us advices to go around Jaco (we did not rent any car) and see what must be seen on a short time. Above all thanks to their... More
