Had a great time at night fooling around on the tables. Wasn't too crowded, perfect amount of people. Staff are friendly and all around to assist. I would recommend. Watch out for escorts in Jaco! It is in the middle of town so, you can just about walk everywhere.

I came here for the purpose of meeting the ladies. Just like most people in modern times, we want to be able to access the Internet. The hotel advertises having customer Internet connection. However, that claim is somewhat deceptive, in that it goes down every few minutes. In addition to that, hotel staff suggests being by the pool in order... More

This place is what it is. It's to pick up women and do some gambling. It was super funny because they have a security guard and it seems his sole job is to make sure people don't chew gum so I felt safe with his expert gum hunting abilities. If you want to find prostitutes this is the place for... More

I'm a single lady who came down to Jaco with my single male friend. We knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into. Rooms are clean(as far as the eye can tell) and nice. After a long trip, a hot shower and a/c and a beach view was much needed. But while my friend went and had a nap I... More
