Pumilio is strategically located to explore Costa Rica like being pamper at home surrounded by nature, see the toucans, macaws and lots of birds flying naturally and the lizards walking around. Close enough to lots of activities, restaurants and things Jaco or Herradura Beaches, the most developed tourist hotspot in the country, wide variety of ecological, adventure, adrenaline & sports tours, offers for every age and preference. Closely surrounded by the most famous national parks and reserves, you will also find a wide variety of restaurants, supermarkets, stores, beautiful beaches, islands and a spectacular colorful ocean among a variety of activities that makes us unique. Located on the side of the mountain at sea level Our guests are always more than welcome in our Boutique hotel. We work hard to give the importance that our guests deserve, especially knowing that they are sharing with us their vacation time. The rooms were planned to be spacious and bright the 10 suites with a kitchen outside so our guests can keep contact with nature and avoid the food smell inside the room. We ended up remodeling the entire hotel last year! Breakfast is included, we decided not to have schedule, guests that are going to tours frequently needs it before 7 a.m. and other want to sleep until late, we change daily because people love long stays. We added “tamales” typical dish for Christmas in Costa Rica, now we serve them at breakfast every day so our guest can try them. At Pumilio every day is a Holiday! We love celebrating with our guests. Please let us know in advance if you are celebrating your birthday, honeymoon or anniversary, we'll give you a pleasant surprise! According with our guests plans, likes and preferences we feel happy making recommendations about the best seller’s tours, restaurants and things to do in the area, it´s even better when our guests trust us, so we have control of the service and schedules of the activities, a better experience exploring Costa Rica and we'll take care of our guest’s budget. We chose the best restaurants in the area and have their menus and bring what our guest chooses and serve it where they prefer, dining room, terrace, balcony suite or even at the pool deck. WIFI and parking also included. Leap into happiness in Hotel Pumilio, the best personalized service.

Overall I would say that I was very pleased with the hotel. It has a beautiful view, it’s quiet, the rooms are very clean, and the staff is very friendly. They even taught us how to make civiche from the fish we caught. The only problem that I had was with booking trips and a shuttle. When I first got there they tried to change me the full price even though I had already paid for half of our excursions. Then at the end of the trip they tried to charge me for stuff I had paid cash for during the week. I also wasn’t told that one of the trips would cost a lot more since we changed it up a bit. So if you plan on booking day trips with them then make sure you get the prices for everything up front in writing and keep a record of your receipts. That part was a little disappointing.

The staff is friendly, the rooms are wonderful and so clean, the pool is nice and the surrounding rainforest is amazing. The beds are great, everything is nice. I love this place. We ordered some food from the in room menu which they have delivered for you and bring to your room, It was delicious. I feel so cozy here and you have everything you can ask for including a full kitchen.

Thank you for such kind comments! Our guests satisfaction is our top priority, we really go above and beyond to make your experience the best one possible. We loved being a part of your memorable vacation! Great to hear you loved our rooms and comfortable beds and that everything was squeaky clean :). When we were building the hotel, we decided that given the amount of delicious options in the area, it would be much more fun and convenient for our guests to have the opportunity to order plates from different restaurants and enjoy them in their room, terrace or by the pool, this is why we created "Gastronomic Adventures", we're very happy you enjoyed it! Again, thank you so much for choosing Hotel Pumilio, we hope to host you again soon!!! Best, Eugenia

We visited Jacó for a few days and decided to stay at Pumilio based on it's location and amenities. After making a last minute online reservation, we checked in and were greeted with a glass of wine and room upgrade. The room is modern and has a kitchenette and patio. The best part is the quiet night sleep and the comfortable beds. They also provide breakfast and room service. The drive to town is only 5 minutes and 10 to playa hermosa.

This was the last leg of our trip leaving out of Jaco Beach. The property is under great security as you have to be buzzed in my the concierge. We were able to book a massage here (which was excellent) and check into our room a little early. Loved the kitchen on the balcony and the view of the pool. The room was modernly decorated and gave a nice home feeling to it. Would definitely consider staying here on my next trip to Costa Rica.

The place is quiet, beautiful and very clean. The hotel staff was very helpful planning my tour to Manuel Antonio National Park and arranging dinner for us later that day. The breakfast was very good and a lot to vhoos from.
