We were driving through the street, which is filled with many hotels, looking for the best budget option and ended up here. As we were travelling with a baby and it was very hot in march, we needed a room with airconditioning. But this one had a lot more. The room was quite big, like an apartment really, with a... More

Been here twice and hopefully will return in February 2014. Convenient to stores, restaurants, bars, beaches & very friendly place to stay at a great rate too! Matt, the owner, could not be more helpful or friendly. He is simply a guy that makes your stay as comfortable as could be. No need to look at other places to stay... More

Paraiso del Sol has been our home in Jaco for the past seven trips to Costa Rica. Matt and his staff are very helpful and friendly. The security is 24 hours and we've never known anyone to have anything stolen from their room or the cars that are parked out front. The rooms (beds, bedding, etc.) are getting a bit... More

I have been going to Matt's place for 20 years and it gets a little better every time I go. Mathew takes pride in his business and it shows. The staff is great and the hotel has a lot to offer for vacationers on a budget. I will continue to vacation here for the next 20 years. The motel is... More

My friends stayed here last year and I came by often. They serve no food at this hotel. It Always looked very nice to my experience and the owner drove me to the airport since he was going that way anyway. Nice people. My friends stay there every year. There must be another place with a similar name.

The "bad experience must have been at another hotel, paraiso del sol has no food, and if the beach was bad, that has nothing to do with the hotel. I have stayed there MANY times and it is alway clean, friendly, safe, and affordable.. In fact I will be there next week again. Honor system bar show you how good... More
