First off, don't bring a family anywhere near this place. It is a thinly veiled house of the rising sun. We ate lunch there, girls picked us up and wanted to spend the day with us. We took them to our pool at our hotel, they stole every linen in the place and left. Hotel staff at Cocal refused to... More

First things first. I'm not sure how anyone could make plans to stay here and not know about the "chicas". I wasn't here for them, and could care less about their business. The ones I saw were very nice, and only approached interested individuals. But if you're a prude who doesn't want them plying a perfectly legal career...stay somewhere else.... More

Not for families or "real" ultra conservatives. Yes it's mostly men who stay there and the women come out at night but if you want a hotel with a nice pool, good restaurant and next to the beach this is it. If you not a prude and a little open minded you can go with your girlfriend or wife and... More

So this was not only my 1st time on a plane, but also first time being out of the country. My boyfriend tried to warn me of the issues I would probably have with the place but i was open minded to an extent. The beaches were unlike any I had ever seen GORGEOUS, and clean. The hotel however was... More

I just came back from Jaco about a week ago. I had a great time. I stayed in room number 1. It is one of the best rooms to rent while staying at the hotel. Its on the second floor corner facing the pool. You have no neighbors, a little privacy, you can look down at the pool and activities.... More

First off...don't stay here if you are not here for the beautiful women. I've seen some reviews that are critical of the fact that this place fills with woman every night. So if you are a family or a couple, I don't think this is the place for you. We stayed in one of the condos and couldn't have been... More

This place is one of my favorite hotels in Jaco. There is always a lot of action and they normally have live music at night. The rooms are modern and clean. Its right on the beach and on top of all this there food is great. I highly recommend this place. Please note in my opinion not for families or... More

My mom and I went to see a room and ask for pricing, and I want to thank the hotel worker who warned us about the "chicas" that show up at the hotel. Basically, prostitutes are around all day hanging around the bar and it's even worse at night.

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!!
