The hotel is right on the beach. The rooms are good size. There is a restaurant and bar on property with good food and drink specials. There is a swimming pool if you do not like the ocean. It is a $2 taxi to mid downtown. The sunsets are beautiful.
Thank edward c

The accomodations are clean/neat, but do not expect anything high end; for the money, not a bad value for being right on the beach. Although abit north from other hotels (walkable or a $2-3 cab ride), the place has a charm to it. The bar is a great gathering place with music from local bands and the food (although nothing fancy) is pretty good too. Even if staying at another hotel, this place is worth a visit for beer/drinks/food.

If you are looking for a 5-star resort, Clarita's is not the place for you. If you want affordable, clean, and comfortable, with great food and service right on the beach, then this is your place!! The rooms are small, but air conditioned, clean, and with plenty of hot water which for me is a must. Probably my only complaint about our room was I could've used a little more water pressure when rinsing my hair. The pool was wonderful and very clean, and has a rinsing station and a dressing room. We watched scarlet macaws fly over as we relaxed in the pool the first day (I couldn't get in the ocean because I just had arm surgery). The beach wasn't too crowded at all, and we enjoyed a quiet morning walk along it as the sun rose. The restaurant/bar was fun-playing a great mix of music, with cold beers, great frozen cocktails, and the food was WONDERFUL. I HIGHLY recommend the Tico Breakfast--yum!! We will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Jacó!! Thank you to the Clarita staff!!!

Not Bates Motel but not big, not fancy and amenities are lacking. Bar was understaffed. Rooms are small and outdated. A/C needs work. The A/C next door grinds so loud. Room decor is horrible me. Shower is blah. TV is too high for remote. Safe does it work. You can do better.

Still coming down for my 11, Yes, 11 week stay. Need I say anymore. I don't know how many times I've stayed here but it's the only place I'd consider. It's like Hotel California, I check out but never leave. Can't add much to my prior reviews...see below. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to do my best to answer.

The casino is a short drive away to the north. Clarity's is a great location. Walk along the beach to town. Not a big frills place to stay but comfortable and clean. Nice little pool area. Cheaper to eat in town though.
