Villa Creole is a nice inexpensive place to unwind in Jaco. Be warned however, it is a long ways away from the beach. This is good and bad. Lots of walking to get food, though breakfast is fine at the hotel, gallo pinto and eggs! Who'd have guessed. The pool is nice, though the spa was not hot when I... More

Stayed here two times on our trip, first time was 5 stars the second 3 stars so 4 stars seems appropriate. Sorry I don't recall the room numbers but the mattress in the first room was new and felt great, sadly the mattress the next stay was old and felt springs jabbing in my back, horrible night sleep. Great large... More

I stayed here in mid-april with two of my buddies (males in our mid-20s). We stayed here for 3 nights, and it was great value for the price. Its a little off the main strip, but within walking/biking distance to everything in town. We had a rental car, so late night we'd park the car down the street and make... More

Villa Creole is a hidden gem a few blocks from the noise and bustle of downtown Jaco. It's in a quiet neighborhood convenient to the beaches, tourist spots, and Rte. 34, the main road out of town. The grounds are beautifully kept, the pool is wonderful, and the rooms are comfortable. Jenny and Nicolai are wonderful hosts, and Ballou the... More

We had a miserable HOT night at a hostel and this place was a god send. It was great for the price, especially if you're on a budget but still want to stay at a decent hotel with air conditioning and a pool. The family who owns it is very friendly and offer a free breakfast every morning. The room... More

Why I like this hotel: 1. Small - instead of 100 rooms, it has maybe 10 rooms. It does not have a big hotel feel, but an intimate, costa rican vibe with beautiful plants and trees everywhere. 2. Personal staff - Ellie, the receptionist, was so helpful. She recommended restaurants, tours, and made our experience extra special. 3. Breakfast in... More

I can not recommend this place enough! My girlfriend and I stayed here in room #10 over New Years this year, the place was absolutely magical. Located a few blocks from the beach, it's a perfect sanctuary from the Jaco madness. All the staff are really amazing and friendly, Nicolas the concierge especially, taking quick care of your every concern.... More

This small hotel is away from the main strip; it's tucked away on a quiet street. The pool is nice; breakfasts are good (fruit, scrambled eggs and rice - every day, no other choice), and the hosts very friendly. It's about 6 blocks to the beach. We didn't have a rental car and glad we rented bikes to get around... More

Clean, spacious and modern rooms with beautiful garden and swimming pool. Very helpful staff and a great breakfast. Not crazy about Jaco, but if I had to go there again I would definitely stay here. Thank you!
