This motel-style hotel is at the edge of town, 10-15 minutes walk from the center (a bit dodgy to walk at night). The rooms are quite small and worn out, but they have AC, TV, fridge and hot showers with good pressure. A clean and pretty beach is just up front. On the first night we got a room on...

Just got back from a five day stay in Jaco at Clarita's and it was all that I expected and more. Wait staff was very efficient, food great and the best bar in Jaco. Say hello to Rosi and Marisol aka Mariposa when you're there and Clarita too. Have fun, Miguel

I stayed for 3 weeks at Claritas, The staff were amazing!! The ocean was always in view and the food was the best in Jaco. The rooms were always clean and comfortable. I would recommend Claritas to everyone!! P.s. The coldest beer in Costa Rica.

One of the best beach hotel i've ever stayed at. The prices are reasonable and the food was great. The owner was happy enough to offer my last day for free. The restaurant bar is located 50 meters from the beach. So you are able to hear the waves crashing while you chow down on your food. The beer was...

Three of us girls just returned today from our trip to Costa Rica. We had traveled all over the country for 10 days, and our time at Clarita's was amazing! We originally were signed up for only 3 nights, but we enjoyed it so much, we stayed 5 days and 4 nights! They were more than happy to move things...

I just returned from my week at Clarita's and I was very impressed to say the least. The rooms are small and basic, but very clean and comfortable. The food at the bar was very good as well. Try the Tico dish with the Mahi and you will be hooked. My expectations (based on the low price) were exceeded to...

I came down to Clarita's after reading the review on TripAdvisor, and the trip exceeded my expectations. The rooms are very clean, and the pool is quite relaxing. For those of you worried about the rainy season, we caught maybe 45 minutes to an hour of rain after the sun went down. It was around 80-90 Fahrenheit and sunny every...
