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

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

This hotel is pretty basic but decent value for the price. There are no frills except the pleasant pool area and good air conditioning. However, the staff are very pleasant and made us feel very comfortable. The location is within walking distance of the town and beach but it is probably better to take a cab after dark. We would...
