“Spacious rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We stayed here one night. We hadn't made reservations in advance, but it worked out nicely. The room was very large and decorated nicely. There was courtyard parking for our rental car. Breakfast was actually at the Taco Bar in town and very good. We appreciated Ricky allowing us to leave our luggage for an hour or so after check out while surfing.

We loved staying here for 3 nights. On the first one they upgraded us to a wonderful nearby condo due to some construction work. Then we thought anything would be down the hill from there, but our room at Tuanis was spacious, very clean, modern and comfortable. Rick, his wife and employees went our of their way to help us. Even though the place was right in front of the street, it was quiet and very family friendly. Plus, their breakfast vouchers with Tacobar are great! In summary, we will be staying here any time we come back to Jaco.

Not even sure to begin.....first off I wouldnt waste your money to stay here.
The room itself was so small..the bed was hard, very uncomfortable, and small. The photos on their website are very decieving. We had a chair in our room...a round one that would be suitable for a 7yr old.
If you enjoy having cold showers...then this is your place! Took about 15mins to get hot water...and when it finally did, it was scorching boiling hot. Absolutely no temperature control. the bathroom is so small that the door needed to be closed if you wanted to use the sink..and would need to move to open the door.
The room is DIRECTLY off the street...literally opens to the side walk. and windows covered in bars. the wood door did not seal therefore you could see light around every side of the door. I could hear what everyone was saying all day...and hear all the road noise and party people ALL night long. it was horrible. and if we can hear them..they can clearly hear us. We had the pleasure of listening to the owner and son fighting outside our door because he didnt clean as much as he was asked to. Very professional.
We had a extremely hard time asking the desk lady anything..which would explain the troubles and confusion we had from day one trying to book it. I understand we are going to a country that speaks spanish..but mostly every place you go they speak some english.
They advertise free calling to Canada and US...that would be great..if there was a phone in the rooms.
DONT STAY HERE! Save your money. Yes it is close to beach, buy overall not worth the headache

The owners of the hotel and the receptionist are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice and clean. It's a quiet place in the center of Jaco. We would go there for a second time.
The price is good, compared with other hotels in Costa Rica. The city of Jaco is nice, people there are friendly.

Just an all around fantastic experience. Ricky was extremely personable and accommodating. We couldn't have enjoyed Jaco as much as we did without Tuanis as our home base. He helped plan our interests with ease, even guided us with the public buses and stayed at the bus stop to make sure we got the right one. Clean room, awesome staff, great location! A few steps from the beach, and perfect spot for walking the streets of Jaco. As our first time in Costa Rica, we couldn't of asked for a better experience. We will definitely be returning and bringing more there with us!!! Thanks Ricky for everything you did to make our vacation a lifetime to remember! Pura Vida

Room Tip: Depends on your needs. There are rooms available with or without a kitchen. Any of them are worth ev...

Clean, nice and comfortable. Was what we need, in Jaco downtown.
The breakfast was great, it's at Taco Bar. Close to everything and not in the right middle of Jaco.
There is parking for only one car per room, but the rest of the cars stay in front of the hotel with a security guard.
