We did not stay at this resort but we did however visit the bar and spent every day on the beach in front. The bar food was ok and the drinks were nice and cold. The beach staff had some very welcoming employees ie: Jordie,...shakes your hand and big smile, Francisco was the same. Alec however, never saw a smile and was very rude to the staff and if you did not spend money on a beach chair or surf lessons he will be very rude to you. I would not recommend going to a this resort due to the rudeness of Alec.More

Stayed nearby and visited the Tiki Bar several times with a small and large group. The food was consistently good and I really enjoyed their ceviche. I would definitely go again if I am back in Jaco.

This was a nice, outdoor restaurant and bar right on the beach. Live music in Saturday. Went there twice. Service and food were better the first time around.

One of the best places to watch our amazing sunsets especially when the tide is low. Love this place and the food is always good. It was a Sunday and w.e had a large group, live entertainment was awesome..a touch loud for conversation but all...in all good. It was busy and service was a little slow which we have never experienced. This is one of my favorite spots by far on Jaco Beach.More

Went there for breakfast. Pancakes were ok. Coffee is decent too but the view is fantastic we are literally on the beach, we can see the whole bay as well. Perfect to watch the surfers and the sun set. On the quiet south side of...Jaco.More

We stayed at the Laguna hotel for 7 nights. We frequented the tiki bar many times. The pina coladas are amazing and the beer is cold! We usually just did drinks and sometimes a few apps, but the food was good. Can’t speak for the...lunch or dinner menu. Views are amazing! Great place to relax and watch the waves.More

The Tiki Bar came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. During our stay we came several times to relax, enjoy the beautiful sunsets and enjoy the Tiki Bar. We had no problems with service as other reviewers reported. However, at times we did have...to wait awhile. Our party of five had the avocado,tuna salad, avocado and palms salad. Both were delicious. We also had the wings, ceviche, fried calamari and rice and Shrimp and the mahi mahi. Not one dish disappointed us. Entertainment was an added attraction (guitar male and singer or DJ).More

Was not busy that evening so reason for the terrible service that we received. Had to go to bar to get waiter to come to our table. Was told that they had no red wine - a few minutes later we saw several people with...glasses of red wine. Dinner came at different times for us - we all ate separately because we didn’t want food to get cold. Ask for glasses of water several times - we got them with our bill. Food was good but the service completely spoiled our dinner experience here. Disappointing when the location is a 5 out of 5 & the food is also good - but service is so bad we will not return. With so many other choices in Jaco there is absolutely no reason to return to Tiki bar for dinner or drinks.More

It is mind boggling how not one staff person here would even try to correct such a poor level of service brought to their attention several times during our visit. The servers were uncaring and inattentive. To the point where they served a severely allergic...teen glutten food despite being handed a letter clearly explaining (in Spanish) what she could not have. The waitress wouldn’t even read the note and said ‘ I get it, so no sour cream’.... no that would be a dairy allergy. You don’t get it at all. Even the manager excused the poor service by saying she’s training a new team. Maybe start with higher caliber servers that actually listen. No water to the table after several requests, no wine, no table visits, we had to go find them.... even then they didn’t come. It was ridiculous. Told they had no red wine only to see them serve red wine to other tables. A horrible experience! Highly recommend you do not go here.More

Not even close, Tiki Bar has the best fish tacos in Jaco. I devour them. Get them. Thank me later. This is a direct order.
