Travel Dates: August 6th - 14th
This hotel was beautiful. It's also a hotspot every Wednesday Night (Ladies night = free drinks) and has a local surf competition right on their beach every Saturday. It's definitely an awesome place to be. The rooms are spacious. We had all three of us in one room (one king and one queen sized bed), tv, a/c, hot water, coffee machine, clean towels, a safe, and we were just busy the pool (room #103).
It also has a nice bar, pool table, swimming pool, and best is you could just sit in the "restaurant/bar area" and watch the surfers all day long!
It is the last hotel on the Playa Hermosa stretch of hotels and inns but it's definitely worth it. We didn't have a car but the bus stop is not that far of a walk from the hotel anyways, it's just outside the soccer field/school and takes you to Jaco. If there are four of you, you could always just split for a cab @ $4usd which is almost the equivalent to taking the bus for 500 colones (~$1usd).
If you're looking for a comfortable place to stay - this is it. There are lots of hotels and inns on this stretch of the area (Playa Hermosa) but after all the hostels we've stayed at, we really enjoyed every last bit of this hotel. It was our week to finally relax and do some surfing!
