This resort is out of this world!! So serene & such beautiful gardens, yet close to town & the nightlife! This resort was immaculate & very comfortable. The staff at this resort are helpful & friendly, and the visiting chef while we were there was wonderful! They truly catered to our tastes, and expanded upon them. This resort was a... More

I visited Doce Lunas between Christmas and New Years in 2011/12. This place is truly remarkable: 3 acres of peaceful gardens that are always it seems in some stage of bloom; a large swimming pool; a professional staff; and great food in an open cafe style restaurant. At night from my balcony I could hear the surf over the tropical... More

Don't get me wrong - the hotel is great. It's quiet, has lovely grounds and is 1km out of town and away from the hoards. The pool is lovely and the restaurant serves good honest food. However, having travelled through Costa Rica we found our final stop at this Jaco hotel a little on the tired side. The staff were... More

We were a group of four. Two children and two adults. We checked in on Dec 31st and on the way there we tried calling about 20 times without someone picking up the phone to give us directions. Once we checked in we went to the restaurant, I ordered chicken which was uncooked and my boyfriend ordered a mahi mahi... More

We are sorry you had difficulty reaching us on December 31st. Our receptionist was available all day. Although the president of the national telephone utility is a regular guest of ours, even our system occasionally suffers from the occasional call failure and I believe there were a lot of problems with local phone service that day. Most of our guests... More

we traveled just before christmas and the hotel was nearly empty. Brian, the owner offered us a second room for our 2 teenagers free of charge. What a bonus! It's just outside Jaco which means you walk 10 minutes into town or take a $4 cab ride but I preferred being out of town. The hotel is quiet which is... More

Not only are the accommodations and pool great, the staff is amazing. Diego at the front desk was sooo friendly and helpful! We were pretty high-matienence guests. We needed to use the lobby phone a lot and had Diego book tours for us and he was so helpful throughout. I broke my wrist while I was staying in Jaco and... More

We spent a couple of nights in Jaco. We liked the fact that DoceLunas is a smaller (about 20 rooms) boutique hotel, and outside the central town area. And the place did not disappoint! Friendly staff, gorgeous gardens meticulously landscaped yet a casual feel to the place. Our room was toward the higher end, and was enormous. Quiet and private,... More

Web site and email response were top notch. Upon arriving, we realized there wasn't really a 2nd bed option for my friend and I (we reserved the VIP package w/ 1 king bed) so they immediately gave us the option of adding the VIP package to a deluxe room with 2 queen beds instead. We actually ended up "downgrading" to... More
