I have stayed at the Cocal in years past but wouldnt want to be within 2 blocks of the place now. It is nothing but a prostitute hang out . I will miss the great food at the resturant but it aint worth hearing drunks half the night. Stayed in the condo behind Cocal recently and the noise was awful.

Maybe I'm just an old-fashioned girl but I'm ashamed that my beautiful adoptive country has places like this.

Unless you want casino action, which was fun, and a bar full of old guys buying hourly favors from younger CR women, I would avoid the small hotel. Outside the room until 3am every morning it was loud. The rooms were probably over used for things besides sleeping if you know what I mean (watch out for your sheets).

I was there Christmas 2011 - New Years day. The rooms were clean and reasonable quite. The housekeeper did a very good job. The best thing about this hotel is there are refrigerators in the rooms that are empty so you can go to the grocery store (there is only one in town about 3 blocks away) and put your... More

Got a beach front room, literally a steps away from the beach, great deal in low season. Erica has great selection of tours available.

I have stayed in Jaco twelve times and tried six different hotels. This is by far the best one I have stayed in. Very updated & clean rooms, superb beach location, superb little casino (with blackjack, poker, slots), great food (including free breakfast), nice pools, safe in the room, secure free parking, great staff, absolutely beautiful girls in the bar...
