It's rare that you are presented with earplugs when checking into a hotel, but we found out why that night - blaring rap/salsa music thundering from 8 until maybe 2 in the morning! Other things were good although the room is quite basic.

Dear AI R, We would like to thank you for sharing your comments about your experience at Buddha House. If you see the comments of our customers, you can realize that despite being in the middle of Jaco, the atmosphere inside Buddha House is very relaxed, even though there are clubs outside the hotel that cause sonic contamination, and we can not control it since they have operating permission. We are in the middle of a city very visited and desired by tourists.   The week you stayed, coincided with the feast of Valentine's Day on February, and from our experience, we know that the nightlife would be full of activities for that week, so if we delivered earplugs we did it as a way of prevention and with the intention that our guests are the best possible because that's what we do, take care of our guests, if it has been a nuisance, we regret it because it has been with the sole intention of improving your stay.    The hotel is located in the most central area of ​​Jaco, with access to restaurants, souvenir shops, clothing, in the center also offers massages, tours, etc., has good bus service, car rentals for example and a strong nightlife with lots of fun, and all this makes it an ideal and strategic place for those who visit us. But when our guests enter the hotel, you enter a green and comfortable environment that we call "our oasis" because we know how important it is to rest and enjoy a pleasant stay that along with the service and the good vibes of the place make it a refuge where people enjoy a lot of a positive environment.   We appreciate your valuable time, Pura Vida !
