I had always gone to Jaco and went to different resorts... and they were all okay. Then I found out about Hotel Nine. Heard a lot of good things about it and went to check it out for myself. Wow. I had never been to a place in Jaco that was so close to the ocean. It's like right there. Every other hotel/resort I went to it was a little bit away. This is a few feet from the ocean.
It was a pretty nice day outside, so we relaxed on the lounge chairs that were provided by the hotel. That was a nice bonus. It was like our own private area. We also went into the pool, which was really nice. The waterfall and bar seats inside of the pool were pretty neat touches.
While we were there, we ate upstairs in the restaurant. The staff was so friendly and the food was really good! The waitress said everything was really good and she wasn't lying. After eating and hanging out for a few hours by the beach and pool, we went back upstairs and had some drinks. The bartender made us some great pina coladas and other good drinks. It was the perfect ending to a great day... Sitting upstairs in the restaurant at the bar and looking out the windows, which open, checking out the sunset and the waves.
If you're looking for a relaxing spot with everything you could possibly want within 100 feet of you (your room, restaurant, pool, and beach), this is the stop. Next time I am in Jaco, this is the place I am going. Won't even think about it twice.
