“UNFORGETTABLE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Nicholas, Jany and staff are very welcoming, accommodating and friendly. My husband and I had the most memorable honeymoon here. The hotel is very clean, peaceful and close to everything. We felt like we were all alone in paradise. We had a very relaxing time here. We hope to be back soon. Thank you for making our stay to be a one-of-a-kind. You're the BEST!!! :-)

Jena & Nicolas were awesome. Great hosts! Grounds were beautiful. You can tell they take great pride in their piece of heaven. Rooms were gorgeous. They are carefully renovating each room to make it unique.

Room Tip: Room 10 is fully renovated and is gorgeous-just bring your shampoo & soap.

Villa Creole is my favourite stay when i am in Jaco because:
- eccellent price for what you get
- friendly and relaxed staff
- quiet and off the crowd location but still a few hundred yards from the main bulevard
- beautiful gardening and rooms
- huge and deep pool

Room Tip: all rooms are equal good

Originally booked for 3 nights but ended up staying for 4. The hotels is set about 400m back from the beach and takes less than 10 minutes to walk to the main strip, and is located in a very nice upper class neighbourhood. The suite was clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities promised: full kitchen (minus the oven), comfortable bedroom with strong AC, ample closet space, safe, flat-screen wall mounted TV, and big bathroom. The property itself is well-maintained and the pool very nice and great after morning hikes! The owners were extremely kind and helpful, assisting us with car reservations and arranging transportation to the airport. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Jaco!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 10 are recently renovated, the others to be followed soon!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We arrived in Jaco on Saturday night and it was clear this was a party town. We were nervous about our stay until we arrived at the hotel. Aaaaw. Beautiful landscaping, lovely clean pool and soft music playing in the background. Our room was pretty and clean with a view of the pool. Every room faces the pool. Nice friendly owners and staff. Breakfast was promptly ready at 7:30 each morning ending at 9:30. Kind of a long walk to the beach which disappointed us at first until we realized it was actually a good thing to be away from the hustle and bustle of Jaco. We would definitely stay here again! The only reason I didn't rate it at a 5 is we had a difficult time finding the hotel. When the advertising suggests its a "Beach" Hotel you tend to think its actually on the beach. But like I said before that's not necessarily a bad thing if your looking for rest and relaxation in a busy city.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1 very nice and clean. Close to parking.

Expat here on the first leg of my last trip back to the states. I had been told about this great little hotel located in a better part of Jaco here in Costa Rica. It is off the main beach road, but it is in walking distance to Jaco Beach. They have a great swimming pool. The rooms were well appointed and very clean. No street noise, just peace and quite. The staff spoke english and were very helpful to any needs. The room rates were very modest compaired to the hotels along the beach road.

Room Tip: They all face the pool, and not more the 15 steps from your door!
