The trip was planned to celebrate my best friends 50th birthday. We had been to Jaco before, enjoyed it, decided to go back for the big 50. This time we stayed at Clarita's, which we both agree made the second experience so much more fun than the first trip to Jaco. The place is awesome. The bar at Clarita's is... More

Clarita has herself a great little chunk of paradise here. She's a warm, friendly person and directly involved; insuring that you enjoy your stay. The location is perfect, the accomodations are comfortable, delightfully bohemian and surprisingly affordable. Her staff of lovely Ticas are skilled bartenders & servers that bubble over with the warm, friendly, vivacious personalities that Costa Rica is... More

I stayed here last spring and liked it so much I have already booked a return visit for this fall. It's a fun, relaxed, informal 2 story "motel" type place right on the water. You can enjoy the beach, walk to town, spend time at the sports bar, or book any kind of activity all right there. The staff was... More

I just got back from a 7 day stay at Clarita's Beach Hotel in Jaco, C.R. I had a fantastic time! First of all the staff is the best. They do everything with a smile and treat guests like family. Lesley, the manager, is on site day and night making sure her guests are well taken care of. She and... More

I wrote the previous review titled; "It's All Crapo In Jaco." I may have jumped the gun just a tad. After writing that review I was in contact with the management of Clarita's and found them to be open, honest, and fair-minded. Indeed, they insisited on giving me a partial refund. It seems as though the late night construction is... More

Made reservations at Clarita's for five days and ended up staying six. Clarita's is tucked away at the end of jacos strip but within walking distance of everything. The food, service, location and sunsets make Clarita's the place to stay in jaco. Had such a good time there as soon as i got back to florida made plans to return... More

If you're looking for fun in a very casual atmosphere then the Claritas Hotel is for you. It's right on the beach and the rooms are extremely clean with an above average bathroom. The Claritas staff is great... very friendly and helpful. The food/meals are excellent, served in hearty portions. You can't go wrong staying at the Claritas Hotel..... I... More

I found Claritas on the web and wasn't too sure if I wanted to stay because it seemed a little different. Fortuanatley I stayed 4 days and enjoyed the whole experience. Clarita's bar is right on a nice beach and the rooms are just behind. The bar really makes Claritas since the service is great and food is even better.... More

I have traveled extensively. I search for bargains so I can travel more often. I will not sacrifice cleanliness. Clarita's sits right on the beach at the far north end. You are out of the fray of downtown but a 10 minute walk or $1 cab ride. While CRica is generally cheap, hotels in Jaco & Tamarindo are closer to... More

With some hesitancy I thought twice about the "economy" features offered by Clarita and her hotel organization. However, the immediate responsiveness of the emails coupled with the excellent website proved to be a harbinger for future grins and giggles, great food and mountains of fun. Speaking of mountains what beautiful sights to be seen from sitting at the ample bar,... More
