“Top Notch - A Worthwhile Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

There were many hotels in Jaco available and, never having visited, I was looking for something centrally located. Moreover, I wanted a reasonably priced nightly rate. I found Poseidon and couldn't be happier (stayed there in October 2014).

The location is excellent with relation to the rest of the town. Though, to be honest, the hotel, restaurant and rooftop bar could leave you in comfort in their own right!

Rooms were comfortable. This isn't an over-the-top luxurious destination, but it fits the bill if you need a comfortable, affordable and friendly night's stay. I was at the Poseidon for a total of 7 nights. Bed was just right, A/C worked without problem and room was cleaned promptly every day. Wifi also worked without issue.

I enjoyed several nights in the rooftop lounge (with A/C by the way) and in the lower-level restaurant as well. As several other reviewers noted, the staff is great. Tim is a good man - honest, respectful, generous and above all wants to make sure that you're taken care of (outside of just your stay at the hotel!)

I strongly encourage anyone traveling to the central pacific of CR to visit Jaco and Hotel Poseidon.

It's a small hotel with a great location 50 meters to the beach, the place is a little bit old and needs a maintaince. Beds are very soft but they do have a strong old smell. In general is good for a short staying

Went down to Jaco for Surf and Fishing with a Large group .We ended up renting almost the entire hotel. All the rooms were good to go. Clean, spacious and AC on. It was a nice perk to have a Mini Fridge in the room to stock cold drinks. Awesome pool for afternoons lounging , and a sportsbar / nightclub with a roof top deck for chilling. We most of our meals at the Posiedon Restaurant. Best food in jaco. The Owner and his Awesome Staff took care of us 24/7. Prime location.. beach 1/2 block to right. Downtown Jaco 1/4 block to left.

Room Tip: Sunset on the Roof Top Deck

This restaurant is located on the side street off the main drag in Jaco beach. My three friends and I had a great meal all of our food was excellent! I ordered the ribs with mashed potatoes that were very very good. We did not stay at the hotel only ate at the restaurant. We would definitely go back zero!

This place is in a great location. Rooms were nice. Had AC and good sized bathroom and we're very clean. Great location close to beach and right in the center of Jaco. The food was great and reasonably priced. Great value.

Spent a long weekend at Poseidon with old friends. It is a great location on a quiet street steps from the beach and main street in central Jaco, close to everything. The owner and staff were very helpful to make sure that we had everything we needed both in the hotel and around town. We spent a whole day playing at the private pool bar and Jacuzzi. Ate more than half of our meals at the Poseidon restaurant. Best meals in town. Try the tuna steak or smoked BBQ ribs. I would go for these even if I were staying somewhere else. Roof top bar was great place to watch the sunset and sports games on flat screen TV's. Can't wait to go back..

The fish is excellent at Poseidon.The lady who cooks is very pleasant.I wish that she had been serving us.
The service is rude so just pretend that nobody is serving you.
I will give them one more chance in March 2015. Maybe they have the option of take out.
