“Great People, good location, excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I planned to stay for one or two nights and ended up staying for 5 of my 10 day trip.

My room was bright, comfortable and well equipped and the hotel was exceptionally clean throughout. I felt very safe and completely at ease for my entire stay.

Celine and Mike who run the place are great. Very accomodating, friendly, genuine and good for a laugh or two!

If you are planning a trip to Jaco there is no need to look anywhere else.

We stayed at the Perico Azul about 1 week and it was perfect. The room had everything we needed; simple and clean. Located in a quiet area of Jaco. The owner Céline is very friendly and helpful.

Very good location; about 10 walking from Jaco Dowtown and a couple of minutes from the beach. Easy to park a car and visit the surrounding area.

Perfect hotel if you want to surf! Tortuga surf school is affiliated with the hotel and has great rates and instructors. It was very useful for us to book and pay surf lessons and board rental.

Great hotel on the south side of Jaco. Very clean and comfy. AC, hot water, cable tv, secure, full kitchen, coffee every morning, board rentals available. Walking distance from the beach, where they provide free chairs and umbrellas, 10 minutes north of Playa Hermosa by car. Celine is awesome and very helpful. Really happy I stayed there

Google "Pura Vida" and you will find the meaning as "full life" or "plenty of life" or "this is living." Hotel Perico Azul and Tortuga Surf Camp fully embody "Pura Vida." The rooms are perfect. Simple, clean, comfortable, and everything you need. Location is an ideal starting point for many adventures. Playa Hermosa is 5 minutes away by car but I found myself surfing in front of Tortuga Surf camp often because it was fun and Michael and crew at the camp are the best. Anytime I had a question or needed anything, Celine, Michael or any of the other staff would appear within moments yet I rarely saw them. Their Pura Vida is contagious as all of the guests I met were great people with super attitudes which leads me to believe that all guests are vetted to ensure that they keep the riff raff away. One of my major concerns prior to visiting was being secure as I had many valuables with me (computer, headphones, ipod, ipad, camera, etc, etc). I am happy to report that I felt secure instantly and never once worried about my valuables. This trip was a working holiday for me so having stable Wifi was imperative. I am happy to report that the Wifi here was perfect for my needs and never did I experience down time. Sadly I only stayed 4 nights before I had to move on. No question I will be back but next time much longer. Thank you Celine and Michael (Tortuga Surf Camp) for teaching me and letting me experience first hand, "Pura Vida." Also thank you Michael for sharing Costa Rican culture and for trusting me with one of your surfboards even after I left the hotel. Because of you I was able to surf a decent board for my whole vacation which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend this boutique hotel to any travelers.

Room Tip: I think the only difference in rooms are size. Otherwise you cannot go wrong with any of them.

Long overdue review but Celine is amazing and runs a great shop. Excellent location, close to the beach and nightlife but far away to be quiet. It was very easy to drive to Manuel Antonio from here and it was stunning. This place is simply the best.

Room Tip: Plan ahead, they only take cash.
