Docelunas is a great place to stay. We stayed towards the end of February and were glad to be in such a peaceful and quiet place. The pool area with the jacuzzi and waterfall is great. It is a great place to hang out at night and use the jacuzzi or just float in the pool. It is very large and even if others are there you never feel crowded. The chairs and lounge chairs could be updated and have a few more, but were adequate. It would also be great if they offered drinks by the pool at least in the evening. It is s a long walk to the bar. If you want to relax with a drink, plan ahead.
The rooms are huge (junior luxury suite), and so are the bathrooms. The water pressure and hot water were some of the best I have ever had in a hotel, possibly the best. They use an "on-demand" hot water heater(s), which I had installed in a house once. They are the best. There is a placard warning that if the pressure is too low, there might not be any hot water, but the pressure was great the entire time we were there. And this is the dry season.
The restaurant is open air, which we like, although a little buggy at night. The food is good and the package with breakfast included is a good deal. The fruit and sweetbread with the eggs & rice were excellent. We had dinner there once, and it was good. Because they are there for the guests, there were only 3 choices for dinner, but they were all great choices.
We would recommend anyone who wants to visit Jaco and still stay in a peaceful beautiful place, try Docelunas.
Also, the staff were all polite, helpful and pleasant. Brian the owner is great to talk to. And the spa for massages etc. was awesome. I love massages and this was one of the best ever!
Thank you Docelunas staff!
