I stayed recently at the Doce Lunas hotel right outside of Jaco, Costa Rica. We were not planning on staying there, but turned into the resort to just check it out, and ended up having a really pleasant 3 days there. It is not right at the beach, but actually that was kind of welcome because so many places in Jaco are crowded and noisy, and this place was secluded and peaceful. Nice restaurant, really nice and spacious rooms, and a great swimming pool. Overall the money we spent there was less than if we had stayed in town and put up with the noise and the hustlers in Jaco itself. I recommend this to any real travelers who are looking for quality and quiet.
