I stayed at this hotel with a couple of friends, separate rooms. The hotel is average and the reason for my average rating goes back to service. To me service is really important and this hotel lacks of it. The front desk is the bar, and because of this it makes service almost inexistent. When we arrived our rooms were... More

This is a perfect place to stay for those who love the beach. The rooms are small, but very clean and well maintained. I had a room with A/C and it worked well and kept the room at the right temperature for a good night's sleep. I ate every meal while there and it was consistently very good for breakfast,... More

This is not a 5 star hotel but you are definately getting your money worth. Each room is equipped with... More

Stayed at Claritas five times in past two years. Keep coming back for the atmosphere and service. Not the fanciest place - others near by if that's what you want. But it is safe & clean with good security and a great staff. The restaurant does an unbelievable job. Try the beef kabobs! The bar is a real trip with... More

I've stayed at Clarita's now four or five times over the past four or five years. I will continue to stay there whenever in Jaco. The location is great. The bar and restaurant is right on the beach with the rooms set back behind, past the swimming pool. The bar is always active with entertainment and the food is good.... More

We absolutely Love Clarita's. We have stayed there numerous times and will continue to do so. The owner and the staff have always been wonderful to us! It is a quiet little place away from all the tourist things in town. It is on the beach. The rooms are always clean. We arrive, park the car and never have to... More

I don't know why anyone would criticize this place so vehemently - it is a motel on the edge of town with a rockin' beach bar. Clean and beds that were comfortable enough. No problems with water pressure in our room, or water temperature. The mini fridge worked and you got a free cerveza with check-in. Really friendly staff. It's... More

Worst place we stayed in Costa Rica and we stayed at quite a few. Worst mattress I've slept on since the rack I had in the service. The water pressure was so bad you almost had to run around in the shower to get wet. Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy
