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...

Mt friends and I stayed at Clarita's for 3 nights. The hotel was simple but clean, the AC worked good and it had everything that we needed. The beach bar was fantastic and we had a great time there. Everyone was very friendly and we enjoyed the beach views from our room and the bar. If you are looking for... More

I booked Clarita's for 3 nights of my 7 in Costa Rica. I was completely satisfied. Myself and 2 buddies all had individual rooms. Not all the rooms have conventional mattresses so that was a complaint. Some of the beds have a mattress that is comparable to a rollaway mattress. Great HOT showers (harder to find than you think!).

Clarita's is a great little 2 star 'motel' style hotel at the Northern end of the beach about 15 minutes walk or a $2 taxi ride down the main strip into Jaco town. The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bar / restaurant fronts the beach and is open from early morning until 10pm. The service is... More

Claritas is a laid back little hotel. The room, food and the atmosphere is great. The bar staff is a blast. The rooms have safes and unlike some of the more expensive hotels in the area the AC really works. If your looking for a clean simple and inexpensive place to hang out for a couple of days while in... More

We had four rooms for three nights in the middle of March. Claritas was just what we were looking for. They are located on the beach, have a great bar (the beer is ICE cold) and the food was very good with a large menu selection. (I recommend the seared tuna) We liked the fact that Claritas is not right... More
