I drove up in the dark, exhausted, having no idea what I was getting myself into with this hotel but not willing to stay on the “strip” at Jaco. The sign advertised good prices and it provides secured parking. The rate was a bit higher than I usually pay but it was late and the room looked decent so I took it.
This hotel turned out to be a nice surprise. Although there is no restaurant attached (Jaco seems to have hundreds), this is the absolute best bed I have slept on in four months and the best hot shower I have had in two. The room was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. It was good value for the money.
Turns out, when I woke up and saw it in daylight, it was a nice place! There is a quiet beachfront steps outside the door and a nice pool. The staff was very polite and the grounds were very pretty. I’d say this would be a great place for people staying in Jaco that want to be a step away from the massive “scene” going on a few blocks away.
