This was overall a good place to stay in Jacó. The front desk staff was nice. We were staying here on our honeymoon, and they upgraded us to a king room on our second night. Breakfast was comped for us since we were on our honeymoon, but the server did not know this at the time, and he was not all that hospitable to us.
There were a few things that we found weird about this place. The rooms are set up so that the front doors face the beach, but the windows face the parking lot. The beach is very pretty, but the view seems wasted since you have these large windows that overlook a gravel parking lot. Also, the "tiki bar" is set up between the beach and the pool, and the parasols above the tables at the tiki bar are covered in this weird fake plastic grass. When there is a nice ocean breeze coming from the beach, the plastic comes off the parasols and blows into the pool and onto all the people lounging around. Not a great experience. But the pool was nice overall.
There were also some inconsistencies with what we got in the two rooms. The first room we stayed in (which was much smaller, but that's what we paid for) did not have a welcome packet, but it did have tissues and bath robes. The king room had a welcome packet, but no bath robes or tissues.
When we went to check out at 6:50 am to catch a flight, the front desk was locked up and deserted. Luckily, someone got there at 7am to check us out, but if we were in a bigger rush, this could have been an issue.
Overall it was a good place to escape the craziness of Jacó. The pool was nice and relaxing, and there is direct beach access. A great way to wind down after a very active trip in Costa Rica. We also appreciated the upgrades that we got. There were just a couple little things that prevented this place from being a 5.
