We also stayed at this hotel as part of a Caravan Tour. Unlike the last reviewer, we were in the rooms on the beach side (which we were told is the older section). Our Caravan Tour was OUTSTANDING and every other property we stayed at during the tour was very nice. This was the only property that had significant problems.... More

This hotel was the last stop on our Costa Rica tour run by Caravan. Of the 4 hotels we stayed in , this was by far the worst. Perhaps our expectations were higher based upon the previous three hotels we stayed at on this trip; nevertheless, the quality of this property was more reminiscent of a "Daytona Beach Spring Break"...

We stayed at the Terrazo with our Caravan tour. It was by far the worst hotel we had stayed in. It's on the beach, but that's where the niceties end. The room was rundown, and we were in the newly renovated section. We did not have any hot water for showers for our 2 day stay. We didn't receive our... More

Absolutely horrible. First of all they book your credit card in advance then do not let you cancel after you arrive and see this horror show. No hot water...no toilets that will flush for two days (and I was sick...probably from their food). Garbage laying around. Customer service was joke, argued with you. Avoid at all costs

I stayed at the Terraza with a few friends over New Years Eve. The overall atmosphere is good, the beach is only steps away from your room. Great breakfast in the mornings and the overall dining experience was pretty good. The rooms were nothing to write home about. Very Basic..tile floors, lumpy beds and not great bathrooms but after looking... More

This hotel needs a lot of work from the rooms to the customer service. If you are a group of guys that want a place to party then this is your spot. However, for the rest of the world, just don't stay here. We were up all night with sounds of screaming and music from neighboring rooms. The rooms are... More

This was my first trip to another Continent, so I had huge apprehension about where I would be staying in a foreign country, mainly concerned about bugs! I am not a hotel snob, but on splurges I have stayed at some of the top luxury hotels in the country, so I have a high bar of comparison when I stay... More

Though Terraza isn't a fancy place, the rooms were clean and confortable. The location was great, and so was the food at their restaurant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to the Jaco/Hermosa area.

We really enjoyed this hotel. The staff was friendly and the hotel rooms were nice. The food was great too. Can't beat the location.

Boy was this place depressing! Maybe it's because it was the middle of the rainy season, but the room smelled strongly of mildew and was very dark. The door couldn't be left open because we were staying on the ground floor and there were no windows except a small one in the bathroom. The shower drain was clogged and I... More
