Travel dates March 5 – 12, 2013
My husband and I recently spent one week at Morgan’s Cove Central, Jaco Beach, Costa Rica. We had read some negative reviews and were a bit sceptical about this property.
We arrived around 2.45PM. We were greeted by the Manager Johnny and the Receptionist. After a smooth check in Johnny advised that he had kept lunch for us. Our flight was early morning so we much appreciated his thoughtfulness; usually lunch is served between 12.00 – 2.00 PM. As previous reviews mentioned Johnny is very helpful and aim to please, this is the reason we chose MCC and not the Casino and Resort which is at the other side of town. He and his staff went above and beyond to meet our needs.
We chose a villa for the week as we had read some reviews about other rooms being very basic. The villa was clean, comfortable and spacious. The negative would be the aged towels and linens. Thankfully we travelled with our own towels, so that worked for us.
The grounds are well manicured and the pool appeared to be clean, we did not use the pool because our preference is the beach. Many of the guests used the pool and we did not hear of any complaints when we socialized with them.
The Restaurant is called Mohito , it has an open air concept with wonderful staff. We met the chef Menos who prepared very tasty meals for us. Jennifer and veronica some of the names that we can recall were also very accommodating and tried to please the guests.
Would we recommend this property? Yes, if you go not expecting a 5 star property but just basic accommodation you will not be surprised. The staff and the ambience of the place made us feel welcome and safe.
In all, we had a lovely week and met some nice people which will make this vacation memorable.
