Eric the owner was wonderful taking us on sightseeing jogs that overlook the beach. The bungalows are very clean and cozy, everything you need so close to the beach. Watch out for the local crab, he sneaks up on you in the pool! ;)

Hotel Los Ranchos is a great place to stay. Its location is perfect in the town of Jaco. It is close to all the great restaurants and great night life. Also close to the beach for those who love to surf the great waves. Clean, great service!

Erik and Viktor the desk clerks spoke to us several times on the telephone and were very helpful and cooperative. Their English is excellent which... More

This hotel was just steps from the beach and within walking distance of everything! The pool was really fun and relaxing even though an iguana pooped on my friend while he was swimming! The rooms were very spacious and clean even with a small little kitchen that did the job. Loved the friendly staff and the beautiful ocean views nearby!

These 'cabinas' were our best find during our stay in Costa Rica. The staff was amazing, friendly and courteous. Our room was large and very clean, our beds were comfortable and the pool surrounded by a beautiful garden was fantastic, even though we spent all of our time in the ocean instead, which was steps away. We called it "home"... More
