We were received by a girl named Silvia, very friendly and very supportive through everything we needed. She gave us all ups and downs of the City and we learned that Croc's is not technically a Hotel but more a Condo place with some Condos turned into Hotel inventory, so we were guests as well AirBnB's guests and Condo owners. We liked the location, right on the beach towards the end of Jaco. Due to the Covid times, we had no much luck in terms of restaurants and nightclubs, so we just enjoy our time there. The building shows deteriorated paint and it needs new paint urgently, the bed and bed linen were ok, the unit was nice, good size, furniture ok, and with a great view to the Pacific Ocean. We will not come back, but it is worth it due to the distance to everything.

Hello Terry, thank you for the review - we are glad you enjoyed our location on the beach. Croc's Resort is a hotel with 152 rooms and we also have 40 condos. The hotel does offer both hotel rooms as well as condos. We have contracted a painting company so we should have a brand new look soon. :)

Beautiful hotel with very helpful, friendly staff. The food was great especially at the pool side cafe. We had a room facing the pool and ocean, stunning view! Unfortunately casino still closed due to COVID problems but hope will open soon as it’s a lot of fun! Definitely will be returning here!

Although only a few resort amenities were open, we enjoyed our stay. Felt bad for the staff who worked so hard to make sure we were cared for... So few guests! Beautiful pool and lounge area. The internet connection sucks though!

Dear Becky, glad to see you enjoyed your stay. We typically have very fast internet so we will have our IT dept look into that right away as this is not usual. Happy to hear you liked the pool and lounge area.

We stayed for two nights in May. 6th floor overlooking the beach and pool area. Big and clean hotel, room with king bed, refrigerator and nice bathroom. Staff was very friendly and professional. Casino was shut down due to COVID. First night we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Ate at one of the restaurants on site, good food, reasonable price. Had breakfast both days, was included in room rate. Was ok, nothing spectacular. Pool water and area were clean, although; the pool grout probably needs replaced if you look closely at it. Only issue was the humidity level in the room was pretty high the entire time. No, we did not leave the balcony door open. We both got massages, 20% off since we booked the room online with Crocs. We would stay here again, especially post COVID and the casino opens again.
