My friends and I traveled across Costa Rica from the Caribbean side to the Pacific side. In the middle of our trip we had the pleasure of staying at Doce Lunas. We were in dire need of the TLC that Doce Lunas provided upon our arrival from the Caribbean side. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. All my clothing was dirty and dank from the moistness of the east coast and the staff gladly took it all and returned it that afternoon clean and folded. The room was spectacular. This is the type of room that you find hard to leave. The room alone is reason enough to bring my girlfriend to this hotel in the very near future. But when you do find the urge to venture out onto the grounds there are plenty of great places to enjoy. The pool is spectacular and hotel staff was quick to provide whatever was needed. My friends and I found that the bar/restaurant quickly became our favorite place to start and end our days. The kitchen put out entrees that were spectacular. The cook had specials that changed each day. The variety was great even though I would have been happy to eat the cordon bleu chicken oven carrot puree with wild mushroom ragout every meal. This hotel is a little ways off the main strip of Jaco. But if you have ever been there you know that this is a good thing. It was great to come back from the buzz of downtown Jaco to the tranquil setting of Doce Lunas. We met the owner, Chris, at the bar and he could not have been more accommodating. As he explained to me all the facilities for business and health and told me of all the events coming to the hotel I wished that I did not have to leave. I left jealous that this is his life but found solace in that I would return very soon. Even though this hotel was perfect for me and my friends on our guy trip I look forward to returning to take advantage of the more intimate details with my girlfriend. I have traveled quite extensively across the world and rarely do you find a place that offers as much as Doce Lunas. It has deeply embedded itself as one of my favorite places. Kudos to Chris and all the Doce Lunas staff!
