“Best Place in Jaco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This was my 3rd trip to Jaco Beach and Hotel Nine is the best! The ocean is 25 yards from your room and it's the best beach in Jaco. There are no rocks as opposed to a little further down. The staff is excellent and speak English. They will help you book local excursions if you want. The pool is so nice and relaxing. The hotel is gated and very safe. I will be back soon!

Room Tip: Rooms 4 and 9 are suites with 2 queen beds and a door in between.

This was my 7th trip to Jaco Beach and I am so glad I found this perfect location. I stayed over the Memorial Day weekend for 4 nights. Hotel Nine is right on the ocean on the south end of Jaco Beach. This is the best part of the beach for swimming, walking and especially surfing. Other parts of the beach are very rocky or have strong ocean currents not good for swimming. I stayed in the Hotel 9 Suite which was amazing. Huge room, king bed, wet bar with fridge and plenty of space to relax. The oceanfront balcony was a big plus to just sit and view the ocean and hear the waves. Breakfast was included and the service at the restaraunt was great I had breakfast and lunch daily, the food was good and reasonably priced. You get free use of their surfboards with many choices and for beginners there is a surf school right in front of the hotel. Whether fishing, surfing or just relaxing at the beach you cannot beat this location. Very clean rooms, great service and bi-lingual staff made my stay a memorable experience. As bonus was seeing many pairs of Scarlett Macaws flying overhead during the day. Pura Vida!!!

Room Tip: The Hotel Nine suite is a primo location well worth the extra money.

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.

Came back. This time took advantage of the honeymoon suite. Very nice.
Staff was still pleasant, and spoke English well, very important since my girl doesn't speak a lick of Spanish. Love the location, kind of secluded on the beach. Would def recommend and I plan on returning. Thanks for a great long weekend.

Just got back from spending a night in the Hotel Nine in Jaco. This hotel is on the beach on the outskirts of Jaco. Just far enough out to get away from the crowd, but you can walk to town on the road or the beach. This is a small, intimate property. It's a great place for couples or a family. What makes this property really special is the staff. I was there one night and the next morning I felt like family. The service was outstanding and the smiles plentiful. It is very good value for the money. Breakfast is included in the price. Coffee and breakfast overlooking the ocean and hearing the waves is a great experience. I will be back.

Nice hotel by the beach with great rooms, nice pool, hot tub and restaurant. The staff was great and very helpful. There is limited parking on site and there is always someone there looking out for security. Breakfast at the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. The views were great. The only downside was finding the place, signs a limited and the entrance is right off the beach. Be sure to get the close up map from their website before you head out there it will save a lot of time.

Would I stay here again? Yes.
