We were driving through the street, which is filled with many hotels, looking for the best budget option and ended up here. As we were travelling with a baby and it was very hot in march, we needed a room with airconditioning. But this one had a lot more. The room was quite big, like an apartment really, with a seperate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. Guarded parking lot and a very clean swimming pool. The pool was as hot as the air, so not quite refreshing and not used very often by anyone. So there wasn't any noise either, just quiet nights.
Only downside of the parking lot was that there was no shade to park in, so the car got very hot, from the early hours in the morning. Also to park the car, you need to drive sideways through a rather big hole between the road en the parking lot, in order not to damage your car. Unless of course you're driving a big SUV or pickup, which we didn't. They should fix that entrance one day.
Other than that, it was a nice place and good value. Friendly staff and good rooms, with wifi, a safe, fans (and aircon in the bedroom), hot shower, just anything you need. On site is a vegetarian restaurant / lunchroom with smoothies and healthy food. But as the hotel is just a short walking distance from the main street with restaurants and a supermarket right across the street, we didn't spend much time at the vegetarian place. And a great bakery next door, which was perfect in the morning.
Jaco itself was not really our cup of tea, but if you need to be here (as a base to visit Carrara National park like we did), this hotel is a good choice.
