Dear Ashley, thank you for your review. We are so glad you have a wonderful time in Asclepios, we hope to see you in the near future.

Response from Sandy S | Reviewed this property |
Asclepios is not a beach hotel. It is perfect for regeneration and relaxation. However, you may book a day trip to Jaco for more adventures or beach if you like to include that in your stay. The drive should take 1 1/2 hours... More
