Came to Costa Rica for the first time December 2012 with my fiancee. He WAS the absolute love of my life! To make a long story short, he got caught in a riptide, and lost his life. We were staying here and the manager, Johnny Vargas was an angel to me!!!! I cannot express my gratitude enough for the service... More

This place was perfect for a simple trip to the beach. We stayed here about a week. The rooms were small, but the Air Con worked, the pool was nice and the bar had good food! Plenty of spots within walking distance to rent boards, hang out on the beach, nightlife, etc.

This is on the lower end of all-inclusive hotels, but it's still decent and whoever is complaining is probably a habitual complainer. Its close to everything and a very close walk to the beach. I felt safe on the property and the staff were friendly and helpful. I came here to surf, I shopped around town a bit, and ended... More

I went On a trip with my high school spanish class to costa rica through a tour company. Had I been with my family we would have left immediately. Unfortunately I had no choice and had to spent two nights here. The only good thing about the hotel was the pool, as it was the only way to get clean.... More

The ground were nice - a big space. The location was good - pretty central. The pool and area aroud that was... More

I stayed at the Estrellamar February 2010 for a week. "Villas" are very basic with hard beds and not a single comfortable chair to sit on. The air conditioner smelled horrid when it started up and I had a respirator infection within a day that totally ruined my vacation. The Estrellamar management response to my complaint was unsatisfactory.

What a delight in the middle of Jaco. Beautiful landscape,pool restaurant and people. Truly Jaco's hidden Gem in the middle of the city. Walking distance to all of main street business's. Clean and comfortable and a warm and welcome staff. Now a resident of Jaco but all the family and friends stay here.

My bike was stolen just in FRONT of my room within the facilities of this hotel, just after the robbery we informed the security guard and hotel´s manager and they didn´t anything. It looks like any hotel´s employed was involved.
