We had the misfortune of staying here a couple of night in Feb 2013. Looked OK on hotels.com, but I guess the picts always do!. The only plus for this place is the location. It is right on the beach in Jaco. First, I have slept on floors more comfortable than this place. The beds were terrible! The room was small. For what was charged, I did expect a lot nicer place. Not even a coffee maker! Took the AC over a day to get the room comfortable. There was no mini bar as advertised either, not that we would have used. The safe is mount right to the wall out in the open. There was just some sort of old modified stand of some sort that was the closet to hang things on. The little bar fridge that was there was turned off when we checked in so it took that a better part of a day to get cooled down to make it usable. We had to ask a couple times to get face clothes and hand towels delivered. On the second day we had to call to have them clean the room. And they did not even leave clean towels! The breakfast was below average. The 'orange' juice was just Tang! The pool always looked disgusting. Would not even dip a foot in it. And you know it is a classy place when a sign at the front desk says "No sex in the pool" So IMO, do not waste your money on this place. Plenty of condos on the beach for the same that are 1000 times nicer!
