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

Our stay at Clarita's in Jaco was an enjoyable one! The rooms are comfortable and clean! It was very peacefull as well. We finally got the rest we needed! The beach is very close by and the food at the restaurant was exceptionally good! A+ Good Job to the staff at Clarita's. Loved the fact that the hotel is off... More

I recently stayed at Clarita's in February as well and I think I actually met the man who wrote a terrible review. First of all, let me say, he had a bad attitude to begin with. I sat at the bar on a Saturday night when they had a fantastic band and not only did he bash Clarita's but he... More

I actually convinced my partner not to stay at the Balcon Del Mar, after reading the rave reviews of Clarita's on this site. Boy, were we dissapointed! First, they charged us $70/night, claiming that all the $50 rooms were booked. They promised us ocean view rooms for the extra expense. Not even half the rooms were occupied when we arrived,...

To our fellow trip advisor readers: Ice cold beers at Claritas are, and have been for the past year, $1.55! The most expensive breakfast on my menu is $5.50! Johnzany was 'never' promised a second floor room. They had all been booked by the time he got around to making his last minute reservation. As for the remainder of Mr.... More

Clarita's is a hidden gem. At the edge of town, down a street & on the beach you will find this little "slice of heaven" with a great sunset , as well as beautiful smiling faces. The entire staff was exceptional - from Mgmt to Security, with the bar & waitress staff equally friendly & helpful to our group. From... More

I have lived most of my life in a tourist trap area in Florida, and the hotels and resturant managers here should be required to visit Claritas for lessons in customer service. We stayed 5 nights at this small beach side hotel for a fishing trip. We made lots of new friends from the moment we arrived. All of the... More

If you don't like Clarita's there is something wrong with you ! The place was just what I had hoped it would be. The rooms and beds were just fine and the A/C couldn't be better. We had a little houskeeping issue the first night , reported it in the morning and it was right that afternoon ! The staff... More

Tripadvisor reviews are designed to give a traveler an objective evaluation through subjective reviews. When a hotel receives a 4 1/2 star rating it should be superb. People look forward and save for their vacations for years. If they are not able to read between the lines, they could end up at Clarita's and be sorely disappointed. That said let... More
