Our dreamlike tropical vacation started at the airport in San Jose. Our personal Doce Lunas driver was prompt and all smiles as he greeted us with drinks and a snack as he loaded our luggage into the 4 wheel drive car. The two hour drive across lush hills to the west coast beach of Jaco ended with us passing through... More

The hotel is a tropical rainforest haven! My young kids enjoyed exploring the property's awesome flora and fauna (iguanas, butterflies, tropical birds, and some very friendly cats) and the older kids enjoyed wifi in the rooms and surfing at the nearby beach (2 miles away, an easy cab ride) and the canapy zip line tour arranged through the hotel.

Everything was superb - from the clean and spacious rooms, exquisite grounds and Jeeves-like staff. My travelling buddy and I commented several times about how it felt like we had our own private mansion in a Costa Rican paradise. We stayed 5 nights during the low tourist season and used this hotel as our base for exploring the Pacific coast.... More

I arrived on the extended weekend of Martin Luther King Day in America and was provided a beautiful room with a nice sitting area and comfortable king sized bed. The bathroom was spa quality and as I arrived at night, I went into the town which is a very cheap cab ride away. The town is full of bars and... More

This trip exceeded our expectations from day one and the only reason for that, is because of the staff at Doce Lunas as well as the accommodations and lush scenery at Doce Lunas. As a couple writing this review together, we aren’t exactly sure where to start. We have been in a constant state of bliss since our return and... More

Between the tropical foliage, the sequestered Garden of Eden setting, and the cats roaming the premises, Doce Lunas offers the quintessential vacation spot. Outside Jaco, the hotel sports none of the vulgarity of nearby Jaco; rather, it has a serenity and cleanliness that made it hard for me to leave its gated confines in the morning..

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Doce Lunas. We'd only planned to stay the first couple of days. But after bannana pancakes eggs, sausage, mango/orange juice and coffee to die for....served to us "IN BED", we agreed there was really no reason to leave this secluded paradise. The first thing that brought a smile to our face was... More

A beautiful place to stay. The room was comfortable and clean and we had plenty of hot water. We were busy during the day and basically slept there. It was a peaceful place and met all of our expectations. I would stay there again. The yoga class I took was fantastic.

We emailed the email on the website twice with no response at all. Luckily we met one of the yoga teachers who was able to call and book a room for us 2 days before we were ready to go there. The resort is gated and well secured. The property is maintained perfectly! It's a beautiful property with lush landscaping.... More

Thanks for the comments and thanks for the compliment on the pool and grounds and clean room and ipod player ! Thanks also for your constructive criticism. I assure you that your experience here was unusual, but just because its not typical doesn't mean we dont have something to learn from your comments. Overall, your complaints were mostly about service... More
