Rooms are sparse with no ac nor windows. Large local crowd with lots of people coming and going at all hours. They did have secured parking which was a must for us. Location is fair, within a few blocks of the town center and the beach. Cheap place to crash for a night but NOT a family spot.

We were 2 sharing a room that can accommodate 4people. It was clean and acceptable. Close to the main street; still a few meters away that prevents from being disturbed by the noise! Reception is available 24hrs/7; WIFI access for free. Friendly staff that helps with all the questions you may have.

You get great value for the price, $50/60 a night and you get a kitchen, living room area, tv - we felt at home and Martin the owner/manager of the place was very friendly and eager to help us feel comfortable and make sure everything...

What do you want more then kick back and relax after surfing the breaks of jaco! The hotel is perfect for this. After kicking back, get up and skate the miniramp that is part of the hotel or go to eat somewhere close. Very nice and friendly staff! Choose Iguanas! :-)
