Stayed for 2 nights with a group of 26 students with EF Tours. Highlights were the pools, easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants in Jaco, and the large open-air TV lounge where many of the kids gathered at night to discuss the day's events.
Meals were included in our stay and we enjoyed authentic Costa Rican fare as well as spaghetti, fresh fish, pancakes, and eggs for the various meals. The hot food was hot, the cold food served cold. Also, the fresh fruit for breakfast was delicious!
Each and every staff person was friendly and helpful. The kids loved the weiner dogs! This hotel has a very relaxed and comfortable ambiance which was much appreciated after a hustle and bustle day of sight-seeing.
The rooms were clean and fresh smelling. There was a small fridge, microwave, blender, and coffee maker in our room; other rooms were equiped with an efficiency kitchen. The bathrooms were decent sized and we never lacked hot water. The beds were typical for the area - a bit firm, but the pillows were better than other places we had stayed on this trip and the sheets were softer than most. The AC worked great which was a relief with the heat and humidity during our stay! The television worked fine and we were able to find an American news channel to keep updated on what was happening at home.
This is a hotel I would definitely return to in the future!
