I just returned from my trip to Jaco and my stay at Clarita's. My room was nice and clean and the staff was friendly and accomodating. I loved staying on the beach and Clarita's let me have that luxury without breaking the bank. Its also a short walk to stores and restaurants in town. I also enjoyed the bar/restaurant attached...

I spent almost a week at Clarita's on vacation and I thought it was great! It's a little old school, but I thought that added to the experience. The bar is pretty busy on most nights and the food is pretty good. I ate there several times and feel that is on par with most of the restaurants in Jaco.... More

I just returned from a week at Clarita's. I will say that the staff was nice, the room/housekeeping service did a good job and I was comfortable with the Security. This is an older building, the walls are paper thin and the bar is a local hot spot. To be more precise there is a kareoke bar behind the rooms... More

I spent a Friday and Saturday night there. The first night I was in a room without AC. Big mistake! It was Kareoke night and very loud, and my windows were open for air flow. I moved to a further back room with AC for the Saturday night. Live music that night and the walls shook till midnight! The bar... More

This Hotel is truly not that great is very outdated and in a bad location its on the outside of town and in the darkest corner of the entire town it looks like your going to get mobbed as your coming up the main lobby/restaurant area. Late night Karaoke is horrible and the bar staff is pretty dry and they... More

I can never say enough about this place. All of the employees; Security, Cleaning and of course the Bartenders have never been anything but kind, courteous, friendly and just help make the stay soo enjoyable. I feel at home here and never have to worry about a thing. The rooms are kept clean, the food is delicious and enjoying an... More

I have stayed at Claritas many times. Great location next to the beach. The hotel sits behind the bar with a swimming pool in the courtyard area. A short walk and you are at the restaurant and var enjoying the great food while hearing the waves crash on the beach of Jaco. This is a very budget friendly place but... More
