Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great Gringo food with a view of the Pacific ocean. The casino is small and quaint. At night the place to hopping with the local put*as hustling the gringos

“prostitute hang out and dirty rooms”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The place is a hooker haven and they constantly hustle you for drinks and much more. The alcohol is very expensive like Manhattan prices and there is very little room to walk around as well. I felt like I was in a sardine can. This place is very x rated. The rooms are very dirty and tiny. The internet service is almost non existent. I am no prude but this place is over the top. No place to escape so I decided to call it a night and leave. I checked out a room before I left and it was not very nice.

“Wacko in Jaco.”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Jaco just like many other places in CR are gringofied, boring and overpriced. Oh yeah and the beech is dirty. Go to Cahuita on the Carribean instead. It is awesome.

“Didn't stay here, enjoyed the bar and people watching”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed further down the beach at a small hotel. Some people we met there said we must go see the Hotel Cocal. We are glad we did. The outdoor bar is by the main pool.
Had a good band. Very upscale hotel. The hotel bar is large, good grill food.
Our friends had a burger and fries that was yummy. The drinks are good, kinda pricey.
They did have red bull though, which wasn't easy to find anywhere else.
The people watching is why you should go.
Great atmosphere, up beat...
There are 2-3 working girls per man in this place.
None approached us. That isn't their style. They wait for you to approach them.
Don't miss out on this fun.

“Its a Cheap Brothel”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We went to the Casino, and it was discusting! the facilities as well. The staff was rude and the people were bitter.

Ladies if your men are at this hotel they are staying at a cheap Brothel.
