We have gone here in the past because it's just a fun little beachside pub with cheap food and good chips and salsa. It is amazing to me how terrible the service is at this place. We actually saw two tables of people walked out because they did not get any service. This time we had two servers that seemed... More

I've stayed here many times over the past 5 years. Nothing fancy but there are other places if you want the tourist resort thing. Adequate rooms, great pool, good security, excellent everyday food and a real beach bar.

Suz and I got back from another trip to CR about a week ago. We made a last minute change of plans on a lark, and booked at Clarita's just to see how we'd like it. We loved it. Clarita's is a funky little place, about 25 units in all, right on the beachfront. The hotel has two wings; one... More

If you're a Best Western, Holiday Inn type or an upscale resort aficionado than read no further. However, if local, funky, down-to-earth is your thing, well Clarita's is the place for you. Situated right on the beach. Cozy, with all the key components (air conditioning, refrigerator, tile floors, TV, Wi-Fi, cool pool, killer bar/café, friendly staff). I dug my stay... More

Only reviewing the bar.....Great fun with the Locals! Went on Nov 1st. Great crowd and cheap beer! Everyone was having a good time. Great vibe. Went back a few days later and had a wonderful "chill" experience hanging out in the back on the sand, knocking down some cold ones. Must go when down in Jaco! Locals know how to... More

I have stayed at Claritas for three seasons in a row, and appreciate how the staff makes me feel welcome and at home at the hotel and beach bar. The rooms are simple and comfortable, and the location on a quiet end of the beach is lovely. I had to do some work in the mornings, and as I typed... More

Just finished up two weeks at Clarita's, and couldn't have enjoyed myself more. This was my second visit. The price is right, staff very friendly and accommodating. Food is delicious - you must try the nachos! Invite your friends to a pool party or have the staff call you a taxi for a quick ride into downtown Jaco for some... More
