“I do recommended!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is the second time I stay in this resort and have to admit that I always receive a great service; it's  been a pleasure for me and no regrets about it. Also, I have to highlight that I love the breakfast they serve, it is huge and delicious!!

Morgan's cove was beautifully centered ocean front with great views and friendly people. Not to mention its own casino ,there was even a surf instructor to assist the great waves ...But most of all the shopping areas were just a few blocks away. I would Deffinatly go back .

Paid $80 for one night, which is the average is in the area. Hotel is ok i guess, rooms smell moldy and beds aren't so comfy. Food is good and Didier at the wet bar goes beyond his way to give u a good service. Rate includes breakfast buffet, but i wouldn't stay here again though.

We thank you for your stay with us, and are happy you found our hotel Satisfactory in Service, Cleanliness and location. This time of year there is alot of rain and Seabreezes that enter from being on the beach, the combination of the two do give a moister atmosphere and humidity also. All our rooms are tiled floored making it very hard for Mold to be anywhere. This is a common misunderstanding from being at the foothills of the Rainforests and the location in front of the beach. Thank you and we do hope you visit again!

So this was not a bad place. but. . . My son and I selected it thinking that it would be the highlight of our trip. The only real drawback is that the maid does not do much in the room. And like a previous review (which I noted that the hotel management did take exception to) we did have problems with ants in the room by the coffee pot. I did tell a lady and a gentleman at the reception that we had run out of coffee cups and water in the room and the maid was not replenishing them, nor was she wiping down the counter where the coffee pot was and we had ants there. We made certain even our little paper plates stayed in the refrigerator to keep the bugs off. The folks in the office did not seem to worried about it. So probably I would not return. It is on the beach but it is so rocky you need to walk down away from the hotel before you get to an area where the beach is clean.

The hotel is on the beach. That's it's only attribute. The room was dirty when we arrived and filled with small black flies. The bed was so unbelievably uncomfortable I actually considered sleeping on the chairs near the bar instead. The staff wasn't particularly helpful. The breakfast was bland and small. There are too many other choices for places to stay in Jaco. Don't bother with Morgan's Cove unless you like being tortured on the rack at night!

Room Tip: Don't.

This is a very strange review, We have reviewed with all staff in management and Front desk to see if any complaints were made about insects or beds. End result NONE!. No Complaints about the cleanness of rooms either made to house keeping department or personal. All the Beds in Morgan´s Cove are of standard Hotel Issue mattress type and we cannot understand any problems or this review.

I visited Jacob and stopped here on a whim. The hotel is away from all the hustle and bustle of downtown Jaco, but is walking distance. It right on the beach and the restaurant is open air where you have a view of the beach and the adjoining lagoon.

The food was outstanding! I had the Saturday night special surf and turf. The steak was cooked a perfect medium rare (moat Costa Rican restaurants overcook their beef in my experience). The carribean lobster was grilled to perfection...yes carribean lobster from the other coast of Costa Rica.

My complements to the staff, especially Jose for attentive and friendly service.

At least eat here even if you don't stay here.
