We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and we would definitely come back! The rooms are spacious and clean and the mattresses were good (hard to find at beach hotels in CR). The pillows were a little old maybe. We stayed in room #23 which is upstairs. You have a mini fridge, a good working and quiet AC, a... More

After 8 days of adventures and extreme sports in Costa Rica we planned our final days to be relaxing before getting back to the concrete jungle. First impression at our arrival was nice beach front hotel, pool, clean 40 or 50 rooms, A/C, small TV, WiFi, restaurant. Pochote Hotel is owned and operated by a welcoming German family or friends,... More

We were supposed to stay here a today, but on our way to the hotel the manager (Manfred) called to tell us that the hotel was full! How is this possible if we had a reservation from a week before? No idea. If this was simply a lost reservation we would have noticed at the hotel front desk. But since... More

Our family stayed here and had a great time. Rooms were clean and beds were good. Breakfast was great. Friendly service and very polite. Great atmosphere of a smaller hotel. Quiet area of beach, I didn't want to leave. Although thought room rates were a bit too much especially before busy season. I would recommend staying here by its on... More

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!
