As a family we turned up in Jaco wondering where we were going to stay for the next 3 nights. We looked into our Lonely Planet guide to find a place to eat in Jaco and we went with one of its recommended restaurants "Los Amigo's" which was by the way a great place to eat, anyway my wife asked...

Driving up the coast, we decided to spend one night in Jaco. This hotel was very clean and modern, and nicely located off the busy street, but so close to the beach and the main street. The hot-water worked and the AC was great, and they're even solar powered and have dual-flush toilets! The owner was very helpful as well.... More

We stayed here one night. We hadn't made reservations in advance, but it worked out nicely. The room was very large and decorated nicely. There was courtyard parking for our rental car. Breakfast was actually at the Taco Bar in town and very good. We appreciated Ricky allowing us to leave our luggage for an hour or so after check... More

A wonderful hotel that I would definitely use again. In the ratings, I gave the following areas 4 out of 5, not because of flaws, but because you should be aware... LOCATION -- Off the beaten path, in a nice quiet area. A short walk to the action, but certainly not in the center of it. ROOMS -- Wonderful, new,... More

We loved staying here for 3 nights. On the first one they upgraded us to a wonderful nearby condo due to some construction work. Then we thought anything would be down the hill from there, but our room at Tuanis was spacious, very clean, modern and comfortable. Rick, his wife and employees went our of their way to help us....

Not even sure to begin.....first off I wouldnt waste your money to stay here. The room itself was so small..the bed was hard, very uncomfortable, and small. The photos on their website are very decieving. We had a chair in our room...a round one that would be suitable for a 7yr old. If you enjoy having cold showers...then this is... More

The owners of the hotel and the receptionist are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice and clean. It's a quiet place in the center of Jaco. We would go there for a second time. The price is good, compared with other hotels in Costa Rica. The city of Jaco is nice, people there are friendly.

Just an all around fantastic experience. Ricky was extremely personable and accommodating. We couldn't have enjoyed Jaco as much as we did without Tuanis as our home base. He helped plan our interests with ease, even guided us with the public buses and stayed at the bus stop to make sure we got the right one. Clean room, awesome staff,... More

Clean, nice and comfortable. Was what we need, in Jaco downtown. The breakfast was great, it's at Taco Bar. Close to everything and not in the right middle of Jaco. There is parking for only one car per room, but the rest of the cars stay in front of the hotel with a security guard.
