My friend and I passed through earlier this month based on a relative's recommendation. We loved the jungle feel, beautiful landscaping, open air restaurant, and enjoyed our conversation with the owner over a refreshing fruit juice. My friend ate lunch and really liked the food. Next time I come to Costa Rica I will definitely stay here, ideally around the... More

Doce Lunas was as we had hoped the resort could be. Beautiful jungle setting with lodges and facilities that blend into magnificent flora and fauna. The staff was responsive, helpful, and very friendly.

DoceLunas Hotel is an awesome getaway. Have been there 4 times already and cannot wait to return. It is a private, relaxing hotel surrounded with the beauty of costa rica.... yet close enough to downtown Jaco to explore nightlife and locals if you want. The staff is so friendly... there is a bar/restaurant with amazing food. Anyone traveling to Jaco... More

This is definitely one of my favorite hotels. It is close to Jaco, but you feel like you are so far away in the middle of the quiet rainforest. The staff is very professional and fluent in English. The food at the restaurant is great and the atmosphere is truly unique with the canopy overhead. Brian is great for helping... More

My husband and I had our wedding at DoceLunas Aug 2014. We wanted to have a private place for us and all of our guests. We didn't want tourists watching our wedding on the beach in their swimsuits or sharing a beach or resort with another couple also trying to experience their wedding. We contacted Brian and he made the... More

I found Docelunas through Trip Advisor. Hotels.com does not list them. We conversed directly with Brian to make arrangements. We made the drive directly from San Jose the day of arrival, making the trip in spite late flight and slow luggage. I liked it better than staying one night in a hotel and then moving. Here are the high points.... More

With sprawling jungle grounds, a gorgeous swimming pool complete with a waterfall, and rooms are more comparable in size to an apartment than hotel room, Hotel Doce Lunas is a quiet and cozy oasis that lends to a comfortable stay. The hotel is a 20 minute walk or a quick, $3 cab ride from Jaco's bustling city center. I really... More

My husband and I stayed there for few nights. The hotel is great, rooms are spacious with a mini fridge, a safe, a Tv... The pool area is quite nice. The property itself is REALLY NICE, away from the noise of the city but still within a walkable distance. We tried the restaurant there and the food was delicious. Breakfast... More

We can only review what we experienced when we went to visit the resort for a future visit.....we never did see anything..and here is why? My wife and I called while in Jaco Be Costa Rica to plan for our trip later this year. A very American speaking (middle age woman) helpfully gave directions up into the resort to come... More
