“Morgan's Cove Review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

I just stayed at Morgan's Cove Resort and casino on 7/11-7/15 2014. The room was very nice and clean. It had a nice walk-in shower in our room along with a fridge. The breakfast was included in our room as was very good. The chef Jeffrey was great and I thought the lunches/dinners we ordered were delicious. The bar tenders Jose and Marco went out of their way for me for sure. Wi-fi was included which was nice though sometimes it was a little spotty. There is a nice pool and another pool with pool bar which was cool. The casino has low minimums which I liked a lot, but was small. Very close to everything and the staff overall was superb.

The only negatives I can say about this resort are there are no ice machines so if you are from the U.S., it can be a little much to have to keep asking for glasses of ice, but the bar tenders will do it without a problem or asking for any money. The T.V. could definitely use an upgrade to a flat screen as well.

Thank you for your review on our hotel & services. We will make sure Chef Jeffrey receives your wonderful comments on the food. We do apologize for the spotty Wi Fi services at times. Our country's communication providers continue to improve there services as we know how important it is to provide great internet to our guests. We do not have ice machines at our hotel but our bar staff is more than happy to provide you with a bucket of ice for your drinks. We are in the process of getting flat screen T.V's in all our rooms.

thank you again for your valuable comments

I stayed at Morgans cove for 7 days 6-17 through 6-23-2014 and had a great time rooms were clean drinks were fantastic and the new chef Jeffrey made the food awesome we caught a fish and he prepared it for us to perfection the hotel is less than 2 dollars to town with great shopping the waves were great and they have a surf instructor on site. a hotel like the cheers show where they treat you like an old friend follow them on instagram morganscovecostarica they said they are going to be giving away stays is what i heard

Room Tip: Room 6 right next to the beach, pool and bar!!!

If you are into:

Bad/rude service, roaches, sticky floors, mosquitos in your room, flooding showers, hookers next door, stained bed sheets (prob semen), and locals offering drugs this is the place for you.

I got there around 9:30pm too late for another hotel otherwise id not even stay one night, AVOID THIS PLACE

Our group of 5 stayed in Jaco for 2 nights during one leg of our trip. I felt welcomed and comfortable almost immediately. The front desk attendent was very sweet, helpful, and knowledgeable. Upon our check-in, the owner Jim introduced himself to our group, and made us feel right at home. The pool was great, as was the proximity to the beach. We had several meals there, and all of them were nothing short of fantastic. I read some of the other reviews where people had issues with the food, and dont know what the hell they're used to eating. We had a great catch out at sea one day, and the chef prepared us multiple courses with the fish we hauled in. Not only were the dishes unique and delicious, the presentation was excellent as well. I recommend this place to anyone moving through Jaco. If you routinely stay at hotels like the Plaza in NYC, well then take your stuck up %$# elsewhere. This is not a 5 star resort, however it is very well kept, has awesome options to partake in, and the staff were all phenomenal. I highly recommend this hotel & casino to any and all travelers.

My four friends and I stayed here for two nights and had a blast!!! I don't say this lightly but the food there is %$!@ great !!! We had the pleasure of meeting the owner who goes by Jim. Jim is a true host, he hooked us up in every way possible and is such a great character we will never forget him. We went deep sea fishing and he had his chef fillet all the fish for us then prepared us a huge dinner with multiple courses. The rooms were clean and well kept and the front desk servicer was excellent as well. If I ever go back to Jaco this is were I will be staying.

We desperately needed a clean room wi aircon and that is exactly what we got. The hot water worked the room was very spacious and for two,weary travellers it was a sorely needed oasis.

Definitely more than just a short walk from town but plenty of taxis available.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room which suited us fine. Oh and they are pet friendly. Yay.

The location of the hotel is very good. The cleanliness is sad. Found a cockroach and when we complained they came with a roach spray (they had it ready :)) and killed it. No big deal and looked at me like why I am being fussy. The back door opens to a balcony which stinks. The ocean access is great !. The travel desk is very good and very efficient. Family took surf lessons and well worth the $. Would recommend the desk. Drove to Manuel Antonio and back. The beach is good for a long long walk
