Naomi and Sandra are lovely hosts (hostesses?) and we would never think to try another hotel when we return to Jaco. Which we will, every time we're in CR. This was our second trip.
In fact, now that we own property in the south, a trip through Jaco is impossible to avoid. It's the stop at Hotel Catalina that we'll look forward to.
One small example: on our recent trip, some unusual circumstances led us to arrive in Jaco, and our reservation at HC, about 6 hours later than we'd predicted to Naomi. Needless to say, we were greeted warmly. We feared that perhaps we'd missed our window of opportunity. We hadn't. But here's what we'd like to share.
We were lost (how unusual on CR roads), we were behind schedule, it was dark and we were both tired, hungry, racing the clock and stressed. And on the way towards Jaco we both commented that we were glad we were headed to HC because we knew what to expect. Which was a great room, on the beach, for a fair price, and a lovely smile when we got there. If they'd only still be awake.
Which they were. We recommend HC totally. And we will return every time we're in CR.
