I just got back from CR last night and stayed at Clarita's for 4 nights. The bar is great! They have awesome food and the staff make excellent strong drinks (unlike other tico bars in the area). Overall the restaurant and bar experience were superb. The problem is the attached motel they run. It's first rate garbage! Seriously, how the... More

OMG no Clock Radio & only 12 TV channels! This 'gentleman' from New York wrote a contemporaneous review about the other Costa Rican Hotel he frequented during his trip. After reading that review below, you will understand why I haven't bothered to respond to his review about Clarita's: Sportsman Lodge Hotel: This place is strictly for the single, male traveler...

Clarita's is a no frills clean operation. I preferred to spend the savings on many of the activities in the area. The staff were really nice and you get a local feel to your stay. This is a triple AAA location, on the beach and close to everything.We didn't spend any time in our room. Clarita's bar is on the... More

I don't mean anything derogatory about "Nothing Fancy". I've stayed in 5 star hotels. This had all I needed for a 2 night stay. Shower, TV, 2 beds, air etc., and it was clean and inexpensive. The resterant bar was roomy and active. The service was very friendly and prompt. There is a young blonde waitress/bartender named Maysil, (Not sure... More

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
