This is one of Jacos most relaxed places to spend your time. everything is really clean and tidy. The nice french girl, who is running the place is helpful for any questions you have. It¨s just a few walking minutes from the beach! You can book surf lessons as well, with Jacos very professional surf instructors.

Doesn't matter. This small hotel on the quiet end of Jaco is just perfect. This was our first time staying here, based on TA rating. Celine, Mike & Josh went above & beyond for us in every way. Josh's suggested restaurants (Rustico & Isaga) were both excellent & inexpensive. Strong work! Animal lover bonus: 2 doggies (1 big & black,... More

First time staying here. I celebrated my 40th birthday in Jaco with my wife and another couple. We stayed 5 nights here. We received first class attention from Celine, Mike and Joshua. Mike is an amazing surfer with knowledge of locals, the breaks and when to go where. We shared an amazing session at Boca Barranca with head high waves... More

Very friendly and accommodating owners treated us as friends not as customers! Access to beach chairs with umbrellas and bicycles to get around. Available kitchen area to prepare some meals at the hotel to save some colones. Staff was very helpful in coordinating rides and events, great recommendations for food and activities. Rooms and grounds are very clean with AC,... More

This was my first time staying at Perico Azul but there were others I met there that had stayed several times and continue to return and after staying there, I understand why: - You're treated like family, Mike and Celine are so charming and welcoming, you truly feel at home.

It was my first time with Hotel Perico Azul and I was really surprised about this great place. The Hotel is clean and an absolutely quit place. It is in the south of Jaco and therefore away from the "party-zone". However it's so easy and fast to get to the City Center that the mixture is perfect. Also the beach... More

I was lucky to stay with Mike and Celine at this popular oasis in Jaco as a friend had booked it. Businesses worldwide have a lot to learn from these guys their customer service was faultless.

My friends and I stayed at the "Blue Parrot" while surfing with Tortuga Surf School. After a long day catching waves, this hotel was our perfect oasis to return to and relax!

My 15 year old daughter and I stayed here in March 2014 for 5 nights with a package including Tortuga Surf Camp. This is a quiet, comfortable place to stay.
