All the ladies in the restaurant/bar, cooks and cleaning lady are the greatest. They were always there to give us assistance. The food was really good and we ate most of our meals at Clarita's. The cleaning lady gave the room an extra touch everyday. The rooms are average but very clean. I stay in luxury hotels in NY City... More

The staff was very helpful and tried to help us with better values for taxis and rentals, going with locals. The girls spoke pretty good english and communicated well. The pool was great way to relax after surfing. The location is great for sliding on your flip flops walking out to the beach and grabbing a beer on the way... More

Dude! Everything I read on Trip Advisor about Clarita's was far from the truth. I think someone close to the hotel made up a bunch of accounts and wrote a bunch of positive reviews for suckers like me. Ok, lets start with the rooms: loud, old, moldy, and reeked of dog. Now the service: The gal who checked us in... More

Hola Amigos: Maybe the San Francisco 'Dude' has a point. Maybe the 90 other positive reviews were actually written by our......... "disabled dog". I'll stop here, because anyone who knocks a disabled dog isn't going to enjoy Claritas Beach Hotel. I am Clarita, the owner. More

Clarita's is a good value and right on the beach. As previous people have said, the beers are amazingly cold and decently priced. The pool is also a great place to spend the evening when it is super hot outside. The downsides to Clarita's are the service at the bar/check-in and the noise at night. The first night we were...

This was my second stay at Clarita's and second visit to Jaco. Once again the stay was beyond my expectations and the atmosphere, beautiful and friendly staff, excellent security and service and stunning location near the northernmost least crowded part of the beach were the best. The new waterfall feature pool is a great addition. The afternoon surf is great... More

Clarita's is not the Hilton. It is however clean, comfortable, and the staff is absolutely perfect. They make every effort to insure your stay is worry free. Food is great, the drinks even better. Beach is right outside your door. New pool is beautiful. Perfect getaway for me and my fishing buddies. Location is quiet and walking distance away from... More

Just spent a week at Clarita's and had a really great time. As noted, it's not fancy, but it is very clean, the staff is great, and it just has a great vibe to it. It is the only hotel I have ever stayed at that had the check in desk in the bar. Great location, prices on alcohol are... More
