“The backbone of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Just an all around fantastic experience. Ricky was extremely personable and accommodating. We couldn't have enjoyed Jaco as much as we did without Tuanis as our home base. He helped plan our interests with ease, even guided us with the public buses and stayed at the bus stop to make sure we got the right one. Clean room, awesome staff, great location! A few steps from the beach, and perfect spot for walking the streets of Jaco. As our first time in Costa Rica, we couldn't of asked for a better experience. We will definitely be returning and bringing more there with us!!! Thanks Ricky for everything you did to make our vacation a lifetime to remember! Pura Vida

Clean, nice and comfortable. Was what we need, in Jaco downtown.
The breakfast was great, it's at Taco Bar. Close to everything and not in the right middle of Jaco.
There is parking for only one car per room, but the rest of the cars stay in front of the hotel with a security guard.

We had such an enjoyable stay! We originally planned to stay one night but ended up staying three because we did not want to leave! The staff was very accommodating and the hotel was very comfortable! As someone that travels frequently I have never felt so comfortable,I highly recommend this hotel!

If you are an overly cautious traveller this hotel offers a security guard at night and is in a peaceful area. If you are a traveller on a budget this hotel is definitely worth the nightly rate and the has extra perks. You will definitely enjoy your stay!

We booked one night at Tuanis, but because of unforeseen circumstances were unable to stay at the hotel proper. Rick and the rest of the Tuanis staff were great and made sure that we were comfortable in an alternate location owned by the management only steps from the hotel. So I can't review Tuanis per se, but I can tell you that the hospitality is top-notch.

Just got back from staying at Tuani's. it was an absolutely amazing stay. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Hotel owner Ricki did above and beyond what any guest could ask for enhancing our overall experience of Jaco! Already looking forward to my next stay there!!
