“Cute and showing promise!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Three weeks ago some new owners bought this place and they have done an amazing job at making this simple, easy-going place cheerful, bright and welcoming. It still has a lot of improvements to go, like the a/c doesn't work well in every unit, but the new energy and upbeat owners show primse.

Right in down town Jaco. To close to be true. Matraces are old. It seems like a nice place for out side, but not worth the price. A/C hardly worked. Would look for a place just outside of the main street or continue and stay in Hermosa, next beach, 10min by car. Which is nicer, cleaner, and quieter, but also has nice restaurants to chill out.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

I'm in Costa Rica for work and went to stay here for one night (last Friday) with a Costa Rican colleague who had stayed here before. I got millions of bedbug bites and someone walked into our room and stole all our valuables while we were sleeping - even with the outside gate locked. Seemed like an inside job to me. Also the noise from the nearby clubs kept my friend up for half the night. I would stay away.
