I traveled to Jaco with a group of students from the States and wasn't quite sure what to expect. Let me preface this by saying that Jason and his team were incredibly helpful at assisting me with all of our logistics prior to arrival, including arranging airport transportation.
When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at how incredibly beautiful the property was; it was on the southern end of the beach (with direct beach access) and an amazing pool area as well. We were told that they are still putting the finishing touches on the property (they just opened in January) but we found them to have most everything we needed.
The rooms were incredibly clean with adequate space. I liked that they included a fan, in addition to the a/c. I found the bed to be very comfortable. My only complaint would have been to have an extra blanket as I'm always cold but overall it was a great stay.
Breakfast was included in our rate and we were greeted with eggs, rice, beans and fruit every morning. It was a nice touch. The pool area is also quite nice; they have quite possibly the most comfortable lounge chairs I've ever laid on.
The property is located a short distance from the center of town. As others have stated, it was about a $2 cab ride into town, or you could just walk up the beach. We found this to be a great, safe and quiet location.
We were fortunate enough to meet both Jason, his wife Lilly and their cute little guy Marlin. What a lovely family and they were so helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to do. Jason was great about assisting us with setting up visits to Manuel Antonio and zip-lining. I'd be remiss if I didn't add that it was fun having their dog, Ranger, running around too.
Overall, a great stay with friendly staff and an owner who genuinely cared about making sure we had everything we needed to make our trip great.
