I was at conference in San Jose,Costa Rica and I wanted to go to the beach resort after the conference.This was the only beach resort that was available that was not too far from San Jose. Ride from San Jose to Jaco Beach was unpleasant and bumpy. Jaco beach is not very attractive. Vaves are very strong and the beach... More

Lets call a spade a spade. This is an average 3 star hotel. If you're used to staying in 4/5 star hotels this will not seem very nice, well duh ! it doesn't claim to be. If you are however looking for a cheap decent hotel, then this is just the ticket. I found my room to be perfectly adequate.... More

BEST WESTERN JACO BEACH RESORT Stayed before in Mexico, Cuba, and Dominican Republic. I'll start by saying that if you're used to 4/5* resorts in the above, you will be surprised. BW Jaco is an okay place to stay. I'll make sure to say that my trip was really good, but the hotel needs improvements. I stayed all inclusive. SERVICE:... More

Writing to recommend that you NOT travel here. Jaco, Costa Rica is a [--] hole. This place is so unbelievably hot - It is 95 degrees and 100 percent humidity. Got heatstroke yesterday and AC is broken (staying at the Best Western which is not worth it at all even though paid a very reasonable $80 a night - would... More

When I was looking for a hotel in Jaco this did seem to be the only one on the beach which is why we picked it. We were not expecting much due to other reviews and it was pretty much what we expected. It is a very tired property on a black sand beach in a seedy town. There are... More

My friend swapped RCI timeshare points for the room so the price was right, $400 for 7 nights ( I paid his maintenance fee) the hotel is getting long in the tooth (old) but they keep it clean and the grounds are well maintained. Security is very good. I witnessed them "escort " a shady looking dude off the property... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the Best Western. I would say that my expectations were handily exceeded. The grounds are very well maintained and quite beautiful. The buffet breakfast was superb, while the buffet dinner was just o.k.. The rooms (specifically the bedding) needed to be updated 3 years ago. However, everything was clean and the hotel staff were professional... More

I went to this hotel as part of a family getaway. We got one room for my parents, and another for my sister, brother and I. With two double beds, we were very comfortable. The room was always kept very clean, we had AC and the housekeeper always took the time to make a little "sculpture" out of our towels.... More
