most beautiful hotel in Jaco. Lovely, private grounds. Great pool. not too many rooms. This place is great because it's not near all the other hotels in town. We had a few friends stay here before us and the property was just as breathtaking as they had mentioned.

Quiet and secluded, this hotel is the perfect place to relax while still being close to exiciting adventures. We kayaked and surfed, then returned to Pumilio to relax, swim and prepare the next adventure.

My friend and I loved this hotel. We weren't fans of the town of Jaco as it seemed very touristy, but this hotel was a relaxing escape. It's up a hill outside of town. The hotel was very small, and every room seemed to look out over the pool. We stayed on the first floor and had a little outdoor... More
