To be honest when we arrived we both were very unsure of this place. we were immediately given our room (3). A small open patio/porch that leads into the kitchenette area with a refrigerator, 2 burner stove, sink, coffee pot and kitchen supplies and a futone bed. Table and chairs outside on the patio. A small entry into the bathroom and bedroom with a TV and A/C. Our first thoughts were this place needs some updating, but after a walk on the beach and a couple beers we figure we will be just fine for the 3 nights we are here. There is a very small pool oval shaped probably not 10 by 20' in size, but it is refreshing and clean. By the pool is an unkept bar area, the thatched roof over it has a huge hole in it. The ceiling in our room in the little hall had mold growing because of a leaking a/c unit. Our overall opinion is this could be a very nice place, but as of today there is total lack of maintenance. Our friends were here last year in January, and they were surprised by some of the changes. Oh leave a light on at night to avoid cockroaches - my husband saw a dandy - he said he tried to catch it just to show me. If you are truely looking to get away from everything and do nothing for a week or more, this town could be for you, as there is not a lot to it. Stop in Jaco for supplies. Our three nights were enough for us, primarily because it is so small, but i would go again and i would hope there is some maintenance done to this hotel. The owners were there at the time we were there, they are from Italy. I could see they were on vacation not there to work. As for the managers, breakfast everyday was excellant and they seemed like nice people.
