It was a great experience staying here. Definitely not really for kids or families, but single guys or non jealous girl friends it is cool.The place is clean and it is in a beautiful location by the ocean. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was very good. Drinks at the bar are not cheap. I will stay here again when I go... More

My room was very comfortable. The restaurant was good. Price seems a bit high for the green season. The hotel is located on the beach in Jaco and caters to men looking for young women. There are many of those to choose from. I had a cheaper room located facing the parking lot. In the evening girls begin arriving and... More

Nice beach, excellent service, incomparable atmosphere day and night, great location, walking distance to all Jaco nice restaurants and Tourist offices. During the nights, every night, there is a Party by the Pool where lots of people, specially women come to enjoy the life with the tourist and have the time of your life.

Ok, just got back from the cocal last week and here is a in depth and truthful review. This is a place for single men looking for prostitutes. If you are with your girlfriend, wife, kids, co-workers, this place is not for you, do not even visit. However, if you want some chicas, here is what it is: the girls... More

This was an eye-opener. We walked over to the casino to play some slots and it's really not much of a casino. (Drinks are not free when you gamble like in Vegas). The main event here is the pool bar - for gentlemen, that is. This is the meeting point for local "working girls" to negotiate their rates before heading... More

Not your average hotel. Came here to check it out after hearing about it from some locals. About of "gringos" old retired "gringos" hanging out with very young working girls. It's not family friendly at all. If you looking to pick up women easily... Then this is your place to be. Just keep it mind they cater to the old... More

Great place for the GUYS to unwind and get away from it all! Attractions where very easy to get to with help from the lovely Melva, (concierge) who gave us great direction and was very honest. Prices are negotiable, just compare on the street then come back to Melva. ATV rentals, Zip Line, Fishing and more. Never had a bad... More

Cocal is THE busiest hotel in Jaco right now and is definitely party central for the early evening. There is a good variety of room selections, as well as the attached condominium tower that is handled (mostly) by the hotel. It is not cheap to eat or drink at the hotel, but there are plenty of other places nearby, and... More

Comfortable beds, cleanliness and modern bathroom with a spacious stand-up shower make this a comfortable place to relax but the gaps in the door frame allow light and critters in as well as noise. The food is excellent on the terrace or in the room. We opted to stay here because of the location in the middle of the strip,... More
