We had a miserable HOT night at a hostel and this place was a god send. It was great for the price, especially if you're on a budget but still want to stay at a decent hotel with air conditioning and a pool. The family who owns it is very friendly and offer a free breakfast every morning. The room... More

Why I like this hotel: 1. Small - instead of 100 rooms, it has maybe 10 rooms. It does not have a big hotel feel, but an intimate, costa rican vibe with beautiful plants and trees everywhere. 2. Personal staff - Ellie, the receptionist, was so helpful. She recommended restaurants, tours, and made our experience extra special. 3. Breakfast in... More

I can not recommend this place enough! My girlfriend and I stayed here in room #10 over New Years this year, the place was absolutely magical. Located a few blocks from the beach, it's a perfect sanctuary from the Jaco madness. All the staff are really amazing and friendly, Nicolas the concierge especially, taking quick care of your every concern.... More

This small hotel is away from the main strip; it's tucked away on a quiet street. The pool is nice; breakfasts are good (fruit, scrambled eggs and rice - every day, no other choice), and the hosts very friendly. It's about 6 blocks to the beach. We didn't have a rental car and glad we rented bikes to get around... More

Clean, spacious and modern rooms with beautiful garden and swimming pool. Very helpful staff and a great breakfast. Not crazy about Jaco, but if I had to go there again I would definitely stay here. Thank you!

...than you've paid for! I've had a most friendly welcome and the room was equipped with a tiny kitchen and a veranda. A good looking pool in the center of the property. All in all the room was clean, also the bathroom. It's just a walking distance of one K to the strip, so don't worry about that. If you're... More

This place was so off the beaten path. Our room had ants everywhere, and the comforters looked like they were from the Great Depression. Hopefully this place gets a renovation, because it is certainly needed. Do not trust the reviews and find a place closer to the beach!

Why say deceptive advertising, right away when you arrive you told us how unhappy you were that we aren’t on the beach, nowhere it is mention that we are on the beach if you have read correctly the review or the description of the hotel you will have see that. Also your comment on the infestation of ants is greatly... More

We stayed about 7 days there and loved it. The accommodations were very nice and the staff were all very nice and helpful. The hotel is tucked back in a little neighborhood that is nice and quiet. The hotel grounds are well kept and are very charming. I don't think you can go wrong in choosing this place. There is... More
