“Fun in the Sun...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2011

Morgans Cove was great!!!! We had a lovely time . this resort has everything you need to relax in the sun . Great Food and every night there was a terrific sunset at the beach bar. Our room was spacious and set in a tropical garden. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing time close to all the amenities the country has to offer. Book a canopy tour with the front desk. You wont regret it!!!!

My grown daughter and I recently stayed two nights at Morgan's Cove in Jaco, CR. The beach front setting, price, pleasant pool, decent breakfast and poolside bar made this a place I would return to if I need a hotel in that area. We had a car so we could drive to town each evening. If you don't have a car, the taxi service is cheap and quick. Our room was comfortable with decent sheets and towels (not always a given in Costa Rica). The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.

My 8 year old daughter and I stayed at Morgans Cove for 4 days. We had a such a great time. The food at Black Beards restaurant was excellent. It was wonderful to be in the heart of Jaco and wake up to scarlet macaws overhead and grab a boogie board from the front desk to hit the waves right on the beach in front of our hotel. The staff is friendly and most speak english. We loved our stay at Morgans Cove.

It was a great place for me since it didn't have any clubs around, so it was a quiet place, you'll always have other guests staying out making some noise, but it's not that noisy. (Restaurant in the hotel is very expensive!)

We were very happy with the choice to stay at the Morgan's Cove. Although it was supposed to be high season, all of Jaco was rather quiet at that time and so when we arrived on a Sunday evening at the hotel there were about 12 out of the appr. 60 rooms occupied, which we loved. It was very relaxing and we felt like we had the whole hotel to ourselves almost (we came here more for the surfing than the partying, but there are few good bars in town, just make sure to ask fellow traveleres or hotel staff for "safe" bars, as there is some prostitution going on at nights in Jaco!). The rooms were big and clean (we had Garden/Pool side and got a great deal online for 59 Dollar including breakfast). Parking for our rental car was free and secure. The hotel has two bigger and two smaller pools, a pool bar, a casino, billard tables, free internet in the lobby and a beach volley ball field. We loved the location right at the beach, especially the bar and the restaurant, so we enjoyed breakfast and our afternoon cocktail tremendously with a nice beach view or sunsets. All of the staff was very friendly, nice and helpful to assist us getting around or booking surf lessons etc. The breakfast buffet was great as well. The center town with all the bars on the mainstrip is a 10 minute walk away or a 2 Dollar cab ride. We are girls, so advised by hotel staff, we walked into town, but always took a cab back at night. All in all a good hotel for a great price.

When we arrived in San Jose airport, we had someone from Morgan's Cove greet us with a smile and welcomed us to Costa Rica. The drive to Jaco was scenic and the new road made the trip very enjoyable. The resort is situated in a great location since its minutes from downtown Jaco, which has very nice restaurants, shopping and nightlife. The ocean front room was very nice and clean. The resort had everything we needed, with a very nice beach, pool, restaurant, bar and casino. The resorts staff provided with us first class service during our 4 day stay which exceeded our expectations. With deep sea fishing, rafting, surfing and canopy tours in the rain forest, it was hard for us to decide on what activities to do. We decided to go deep sea fishing on the 55 foot "Rock & Roll". My friends and I caught 10 Sailfish (all over 130 pounds), and many Tuna and Dolphin (also known as Dorado or Mahi Mahi). I live in Florida and I have never caught so many fish in just two days. The boats staff provided us with excellent service, food and drink. My friends and I have fished all over the world and we would rank Jaco, Costa Rica as one of the best places to fish large Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna and Dolphin.

Please catch and release all game fish to insure the Costa Rican fishery stay's healthy.

Since we had a great time, we are now planning our next trip back to Morgan's Cove. We will be doing some of those activities we missed on our last trip as well as more deep sea fishing.

We want to personally thank Roger, Jeff and their staff for making our vacation very enjoyable one we will never forget. Pura Vida!
