This Hotel is one of the options to get both, a place to stay next to the beach with a reasonable price. The rate includes a huge breakfast worth at least $10 to $15. The rooms are clean, the pillows were rough and even though the TVs are small, well people don't go to the beach to watch tv, so... More

We were staying nearby at Claritas hotel which is adequate but lacked any ambiance. On my morning walk I noticed this lovely spot and we decided to have breakfast which is not included at Claritas. The food and service was good. I ask to view the rooms and they appeared much better than ours. Next time we are jumping ship.... More

Although this hotel is only rated a 2 star, it is an excellent choice for the following reasons: 1 - It is super clean 2 - The food is outstanding and very reasonably priced - how about bacon wrapped filet mignon for $18.00 USD? 3 - The location - right on the quiet low key end of Jaco Beach 4...

Don't be fooled by the professional photos of the pool area. While the pool area is nice, it's the highlight of the place. Way over priced for uncomfortable beds, crappy showers, loud air conditioner and poor breakfasts. The operator, Manfred, is curt and unfriendly. To get to the hotel you have to drive up the back alley. On top of... More

The rooms are good size, but the amenities (or should I say amenity) consists of two small bars of soap. The curtains appear to be tie dyed sheets. The shower was beyond awful--clean, but just a sort of stream dripping at you. There was a small fridge, which was a plus. The place is very basic, but it has a... More

Very nice small hotel. Clean, safe, goood food! perfect for families to relax. The pool is Ok but there is no pool for kids. The room was just a few steps from the pool and very close to the beach. We will definitely come back!

Stay with some other friends. Breakfast is great, very clean areas. Manfred is very friendly guy and always looking to make you feel great. The bar is not a regular fancy place, but is OK. Beach is just a few steps form the room. NIce and clean pool area.

Stayed here in November 2012. Right on the beach, a/c, fridge, pool and right on the beach. I could hear the ocean from my room if all was quiet. The staff was friendly and provided me with information about safety in the area and good places to eat. The house keeping was great and very through. Everything was kept clean... More

Glad to see the Hotel is still kept up the great service of Manfred(Max) and his employees. The travelers photos are exactly how we found it way back then. The food was delicious and Max really made sure that everyone was happy, well done.

Friendly owner, helped us with breakfast and getting us glutenfree food which was really very friendly. Nice pool. Basic rooms, clean, right next to the beach. A bit too far to walk to the city.
