The best quality of this hotel is the outside restaurant, but watch out for the iguanas. We did not see them until our last day and they are fun to watch, but they are looking for food and can be annoying. The staff will get rid of them if they appear. Another great thing about this hotel is that it... More

My room was on first floor, well located to easily step to pool, ocean, bar, and eating area. An hour away I spent time at a national park, and 5 minutes away is the small town of Jaco....perfect! Even the surfers seem to agree. Do not forget to watch the sunsets!

We stayed here as part of our tour. As mentioned by other reviewers the room as somewhat dated but ours was clean and worked well for us. The setting is absolutely lovely and the macaws in the trees made my trip. We found the staff helpful and friendly, the food good, and enjoyed walking on the beach.

The hotel and ground are located on a spectacular black sand beach. The rooms are located in wings on the two story property. The large pool with a swim up bar is in the center.  Ample comfortable seating surrounds the pool. The open air restaurant has great water views. Sunsets were glorious. We were overjoyed to have numerous sightings of... More

Ageing decor, dreadful worn out fraying towels, cheap poor quality bed linen, road noise, restaurant staff and kitchen staff unable to provide food ordered..a very tired hotel. The location on the beach is excellent.

The beds were fine and room spacious. The shower was nice & big, but the sink and counter needed to be replaced. There was no place to put your makeup bag and toothbrush etc. The grounds were beautifully manicured and we enjoyed the view of the ocean.

What a terrible resort. First the rooms have not been touched since early eighties when the place was built. Second, can you say No Wifi, not in the rooms not even in the common areas that works. Third, this place makes you wear a wrist band like your at Chucky Cheese except your not, you are in some terrible resort... More

We are traveling with a group which utilizes this hotel on a regular basis. I am not sure why we stayed here. The resort was taken over with local business companies from San Jose for the day. The music was loud, the people were drunk and there was not one free lounge chair by the pool or swim up bar.... More

The hotel needs to be renovated before they can charge $115usd/night; however the view is fantastic, and the beach is great for surfers. The sand is dark grey color which it nice to see. If you like to enjoy time on the beach, this is not a hotel for you, the hotel does not offer umbrellas or any kind of... More

From the moment our party of four arrived and we asked the price of a room, the price changed numerous times. When it was finally decided the total was paid with cash. The guy that checked us in then visited our room bringing cash to show us that we did not pay him enough and that he had counted incorrectly.... More
