This was our first trip to Costa Rica. And we turned to Trip Advisor when deciding on where to stay in Jaco. Trip Advisor recommended Hotel Poseidon, and we loved it. The food is the best in town, the people are friendly and helpful; and the hotel is half a block from the beach. We were extremely pleased with the... More

This was my first time out of the country and I had a wonderful time. Tim gave an amazing rate for my stay. My brothers and I were there for 8 days. The beach was about 100 meters away from the Poseidon. The Poseidon is right in the center of Jaco so everything was in walking distance. The staff was... More

The hotel is a pretty cool looking place with a nice little restaurant. It is very close to the beach so the location is excellent. The parking is a little sketchy but we used the pay to park option across the street for a few bucks which was fine. The food at the restaurant was good and the atmosphere was... More

Checking in was a chore, staff not interested. Place is run down, pool small and looks dirty. No hot water. No tea or coffee facilities. Mattress has springs poking through. Might have been nice once, but now it is a poor example of a hotel.

Hotel Poseidon has great food! I've been a few times and had the prix fixe menu, where you can choose one appetizer (we liked the fried veggies) and two entrees (gotta have the seared tuna- yum!) and one dessert (we are always waaaaaaay too stuffed to eat much dessert). The fish is fresh, the preparation/presentation is nice. Upstairs is more... More

Stayed here on a last minute whim. Love the home like feeling at this establishment. Rooms are neat and simple. Lots of character with a Tico flavor. Owner is American and loves what he does. One block from the beach and EVERYTHING is within walking distance.

My son and I each had rooms here. The rooms were shabby and very dated. The best thing about them was the AC. There was no hot water and very low water pressure in the shower. The rooms safes are the old type with keys not combos. Some friends of ours were staying there and there was a rainstorm and... More

Stay elsewhere is my advise to anyone who is thinking about booking a room at this place. Hookers and roaches and located in the slums of jaco beach. Do yourself a favor and keep looking for rooms at other hotels there are MUCH better ones in jaco.

First time to Jaco (and Costa Rica). Stayed here for 6 nights. Tim and his staff are nice people. The room was clean and comfortable, however the bathroom needs some updating ( especially the shower). The food was pretty good at the restaurant on site. You are about one block to the beach. You can rent chairs once down at... More
