I think the hotel was too expensive given the facilities it has: an small pool, my room had an outside shower that looked improvised. The Place is usually crowed and rooms are back to back so it can get noisy. a big plus is that it was an outside gate leading to the beach

Nice size rooms (always) double occupancy, Parking, Wifi, security, Pool, laundry service, and your own private entrance to the beach. All for $70/night. It's on Cocal street, right up the block from Mangos and The mayhem known as the Cocal hotel & bar.

This place was a last-minute booking in Jacó, and we also had some budgetary constrains. This place is definitely for budget travelers. Right next to noisy clubs at night, and a noisy pool in the mornings, insufficient AC, old furniture, a bathroom door that doesn't fit the frame... The service from the staff wasn't bad, but this place is definitely... More

Accepts credit cards. I paid $100 for Saturday, and then $50 for Sunday. Esteban, the manager, is a nice guy who speaks English and will help you out--he also lives in one of the rooms. Good location close to the main drag. Beach access. Pool. Restaurant onsite that I didn't try. No included breakfast. Rooms are spacious with old-timey A/C... More

We priced everything on the beach side of the road and this came up winners. It is not the $340 night digs at Best Western (!?) That is right, a $340 Best Western! This hotel was at one time a classy place with a still lovely pool, private walk to the beach and even coins cast into the restaurant sidewalk.... More

This rather unknown Hotel is centrally located in Jaco with private beach access. Plenty of safe parking. Rooms are very spacious, clean and airy. Lovely pool and entertainment area. Busstop 100metres away. Supermarket 100metres away. Beach 50metres away. Restaurants 10metres away. Jaco is generally a noisy party town and accommodation in the affordable range is either way out of town... More
