The hotel isn't the Ritz Carlton, but the staff at the hotel are fabulous. The owner and staff are always there to answer your questions about where and what to do, book your excursions, and cook the fish you caught for free!! It's one of those places that seems like the employees really like coming to work. Once you realize... More

I spent 3 nights at Clarita's and had a great time. This is a decent little motel. The rooms were comfortable & always clean. Room had cable tv , a mini fridge & 2 chairs outiside the door to kick back and relax. The bar/restaurant is great. Cold beer, decent food & great service. About a 5 minute walk on... More

If you are going to spend your vacation outside your room, you don't have problems when you have the feeling that your neighbor is in the same room (especially when is having fun with girls...), you like sports and beer, that's probably a good place for you. This place was ok but not great. If I'm going back to Jaco,... More

My girlfriends and I decided to role the dice and get waco in Jaco at Clarita’s for our 4 day excursion to Jaco in Aug. 2007. If you are looking for a resort type atmosphere with resort prices, Claritas is not for you. However, if you want an ocean front room that is very clean and secure with ac, hot... More

I spent 9 very relaxing days at Clarita's while getting to know the town of Jaco. The rooms were clean, the staff was wonderful(always cheerful and smiling), and the open air bar/restaurant on site(right on the beach) made it easy for getting good meals in between my adventures. I made alot of good friends there and felt more like a... More

I chose Clarita's based on the reviews I read here. It was OK but far from great. If you're a surfer looking to crash, or a drunk looking for a flop for the night, this place is for you. If you want comfort and ammenities, pay the price and go somewhere else. The room was OK and clean but the... More

da22, Owner at Clarita's Beach Hotel, responded to this review

According to VZEEIHHT, he stayed at Clarita's Beach Hotel in September 2006 and wrote his review in August 2007. It must have been a memorable stay! Anyway, when you check in at Claritas please do not check out your common sense. By that I mean if the LG ac unit in your room is too cold just use the remote... More

If you want a very chill, awesome beachfront vacation spot that is extremely affordable and comfortable, then Clarita's is the place for you. It's right in front of the beach, away from the main street, but only a dollar cab ride to all the bars and restaurants. The rooms are very clean, with great a/c, cable tv, fridge, wall safe...
