“Get away from everything and relax!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We were lucky enough to find this place when no one else did... We booked 2 nights, and decided to stay an extra night since we had the place pretty much for ourselves (we still can't figure out how the heck this place wasn't crowded being there on a long weekend!). Alain runs the place and made us feel all the time like if we were guests on his beach house. He was always there to ask if we needed something, and he even was kind enough to prepare us dinner including pasta, fish and even a middle-east based dish!
The place has a great pool with one of the most amazing views I've enjoyed. I just loved it! There's a pool table and a foosball table on the second floor, plus a 40" tv and cozy sofas to watch movies on the DVD player.
Can't thank enough Alain and his wife for making us feel at home!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with Ocean View on the 2nd floor. Keep in mind the rooms don't have a mini ref...

Bearutiful, secluded, upscale B&B. Rooms are spacious with satalite tv (of which I watched little of), billards table on second floor. Howard, owner, lives on property along with hotel managers, his son Jacob and Jacob's girlfriend, Amanda, all Americans (Jake and Amanda both spaeak Spanish as well). Jake and Amanda were very friendly and helpful giving information on places to go thinigs to do. Jake doubles as the property's "Chef" and if you wish to have dinner on property just put your order in early in the day and He and Amanda will go to town and purchase (I recommend the fresh dorado and fresh steamed veggies) your request and prepare a wonderful meal. Enjoy your meal poolside (negative edge pool) at sunset with breathtaking view of the ocean. Jake also surfs and can fill you in on all the local information.

stayed here it was nice. Quiet, the place is ran by "Howard" and his son "the chef". Although I was not overly impressed with Jaco, it was nice to get out of town to a quiet place....great sunset! Two german shepherds on the property, beautiful dogs......they don't bite.
Good Job guys....good luck with your hotel.

  • Liked — view, quite, friendly staff
  • Disliked — down town jaco...what a dump.
