HypersonicStavanger is right about the lack of circulation within the rooms. When we arrived, it did seem rather dank for comfort. However, you eventually get used to it.
I appreciated the service at the front desk, if only it means that nice Costa Rican girl who could hold a conversation. She helped me with directions when I got an eye infection and needed to see the doctor and get my medication (speaking of which, just don't get sick in Jaco).
There is also a pool facility in the place, but don't expect anything too big. I'm not sure if the Jacuzzi was working, because we didn't know how to turn it on. We got a room on the second floor for most nights, and it had 2 double beds and 2 singles. It even had its own refrigerator and kitchen set-up, which was extremely handy for us. We had to extend an additional night, so they shifted us to another room on the corner of the 2nd floor, which had 2 windows and 2 double beds. Also adequate.
Nothing extremely exciting about this place, but I would consider this place if I return to Jaco! I would like to find something just a little closer though, it takes a good 10-15 minute walk from to beach to get to the hotel, which can be tiring. I did read that Blue Palm has a lowest-price guarantee for any offer from a hotel with a similar quality and location, you should check with them.
Great restaurants nearby, by the way.
