On the plus side this place has a lovely pool area and a breakfast included in the price - the room are a bit on the shabby side though and could do with a bit of a update - but they are very quiet and each one has its own terrace area and also basically what you need i.e. air con, TV, fridge etc.
It is a tiny bit far out of town - took us about 15-20 mins each way to walk to the centre but I guess it was good exercise!
They also sold some original artwork in the reception which was a nice touch. Jaco was a bit of a funny place all in all - we thought it was going to be a major party town but it ended up being more ghost town the couple of days we were there!
