Don't buy drinks for the companion at the bar inside the hotel. The bar tender will keep on asking your companion for more drink as soon the individual finished the drink. Sit else where and go get drink as needed. Your companion may end up drinking 3-4 drinks at a cost of 10-18 per drink. Do the math!!

My husband and I took a trip to Jaco Beach on a whim and after driving around for a bit we came across Hotel Cocal. From the street side it didn't look like much of a place to stay but once you go into the main doorway a whole new world appears. The pools, the bar and the ocean location... More

Just returned and hated to leave. I personally don't see how it could have been any better. Stayed in the penthouse and enjoyed the entire stay along with the many extras. I am planning another trip soon. The fishing was great food and attention by the staff was just how I like it. I wouldn't consider any where else in... More

When people told me that Costa Rica is inexpensive, I thought they were right until I came and stayed at this hotel. The hotel itself only offers girls and nothing else. Do not bring a family here. It is more like a motel than hotel. They offer a free breakfast but it is extremely limited and small. Expect to pay... More

I was shocked when I got my bar bill...two local beers and two tequila`s...$32.00 American! I don't care how good looking the working girls are thought to be, the prices reflect that the working girls are readily available, some are stunning and some you would chew your arm off to get away from...lol, I was there to gamble, but they...

High milage, tatted, dressed to the 9's, foot tall platform shoes, waddling plump, about 75 of them, days after Christmas milling around the twin pools and tiki bar. Lovely beach front property. But lore of drop dead gorgeous females from reviews and forums just wasn't there. Just numerous, very polite, well dressed grizzled old pros. People watching was majorly entertaining... More

We didn't stay there, we did go to the casino to play some. I did pretty well with that. The hookers are full force there, with 50% of them being easy on the eyes. I cant say much for the food or hotel, but the casino and bar were good.
