I happened to be in Jaco when Costa Rica played in the World Cup and that was a fun time to be there. I watched games at the local restaurants and had a merry time watching the ticos celebrate there win. After they won a game, the streets filled up with cars and an impromtu parade broke out....

We paid about $70 a night so we were a little worried about spending it at first, but if you have some money then it's worth it. There's a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen/living area with a couch, cooking area, tv and a little table to eat at. Breakfast isn't included but you can make you own on the skillet or... More

We stayed here for over a week during our recent trip. It was truly a home away from home. Margaret and Rob (and Mau, the friendliest yellow lab) are wonderful hosts. The apartment had everything we needed (fully equipped kitchen, clean bathroom, closet space, tv, a/c, etc.), so when we got tired of eating out all the time, it was... More

My partner and I stayed at Posada Jaco for 9 days in May 2014, just at the start of the wet season. It was really an ideal spot for many reasons. One: it is centrally located in the town and is a few minutes' walk to most restaurants, shops, and surfing companies. Two: it is about 2000 meters from the... More

I stayed here on May 20th, 2014 after finding the listing on tripadvisor. I called to confirm availability and price and arrived the next day. The room was spacious with beds for 6 people and included AC, Fridge and TV. Located right in the center of Jaco and 1 minute walk to the beach. The bathroom was snug and not... More

I spent 5 days there and the room was large, clean and comfortable. I was able to walk to everything but still was far enough away from all of the noise and crowds. Perfect location. So close to the beach that I could easily go for a swim/playtime when I first woke up and at the end of the day.

We arrived in Jaco and were made to feel like part of the family from the instant we landed with Margaret and Robert and moe. This is a true family hotel the position is great and Robert and Margaret are always there to help with tours and any other advice.

We stayed here Nov. 3 to Nov. 8, 2013. Great hotel/ apartment. Perfect location in Jaco. We could walk to everything. The owners were great. And Mo, the dog, helped us not miss our dog so much. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The rates were great, like everything else. Can't wait to go back!

We have been going to Jaco for years and stayed at most of the hotels. One week we found this nice hotel just off the main street towards the beach right in downtown Jaco. We were expecting just an average room for the low price, but found that the rooms are large and would be considered a suite at most... More

If you are looking for a giant room and to be treated like a king, this is not the place. If you are looking for a nice size room with down to earth staff, who will try to accommodate you with with whatever you need, this is the place. Everybody who works there is extremely nice. Place is very clean,... More
