Clarita's was a two night stop over for me in Jaco and was just what I needed - a cheap, clean safe place to stay.
Pros: price ($50 a night), clean, hot water, TV, fan or AC depending on your room, beach bar out front with good food, the quiet north end of the beach.
Cons: A good long 15 minute walk into the main town or a short taxi ride, no real privacy from neighboring rooms in the "fan" rooms (it's like sharing a room, from a sound perspective).
I would recommend staying here. It was a great budget hotel. But don't walk around Jaco at night, unless you're part of a crowd.
