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This Hotel is truly not that great is very outdated and in a bad location its on the outside of town and in the darkest corner of the entire town it looks like your going to get mobbed as your coming up the main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

This was my 3rd stay at claritas. This is my #1 spot to stay in Jaco. The food is fantastic, and I always meet the most fun and interesting people there!

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

Fantastic place to stay. Clean rooms, nice pool, excellent bar with very friendly, courteous, NICE bartenders. Owner is on hand to welcome everyone. Security on hand 24 hours a day. Walk out of the hotel onto the Pacific coast at Jaco Beach. What else could you ask for at an excellent room rate. $3.00 taxi ride to town or walk... More

There are many types of Costa Rica in Costa Rica and if you are looking for a true Pura Vida experience, I highly recommend a long stay at Clarita's. Why travel thousands of miles to this beautiful country filled with great people only to stand on the sidelines? Perhaps Disneyland, your local mall, McDonalds or Las Vegas would be a... More

If you are looking for hotel style accomodations this is not the place for you. This is a cheap, don't plan to be in my room much type of place. Although the surface looks clean this establishment is run down and old. The staff was helpful and friendly, but I did feel like I needed to wear shoes around the... More

This was my third trip to Costa Rica and first time in Jaco. Spent 10 days, starting with Super Bowl Sunday at Clarita's. I must say it is the best beach bar in Jaco. The food is very good and the service was excelent. My favorite bartenders were Lina and Dorothy. All the girls work very hard. The view of... More

Wow! This was my second time staying at Clarita's. I thought my first time, which was for a month was wonderful, but...this year it was even better. I stayed for two months! The management, the cleaning staff, the security, the kitchen staff, and the servers all made my stay wonderful. The vibe and the people that work at Clarita's make... More
