My boyfriend and I stayed here for one week in February and were blown away by the warmth of the hosts, Celine and Mike, as well as their dedication to ensuring an awesome stay for the guests of their beautiful hotel.
We flew in from Toronto, and the airport had lost our bags. Celine greeted us upon arrival at the hotel, and immediately took down our lost luggage reference number and assured us she would keep on them to make sure they were actually delivered. She then drove us to not only show us where the beach is (about a 5 minute walk), but took us into town so we could get some Jaco appropriate clothing. When it became clear that we were not getting our bags as promised, Mike and Celine took turns calling the airline and airport to get it sorted out. Thanks to their persistence, we got our bags the next day. This is just one example of how Celine and Mike go above and beyond for their guests. They are genuinely awesome people.
Their surf camp has a spot on the South end of the beach, a few minutes walking from the city, where they have chairs and the staff will watch your things. Really nice to not have to worry every time you go in the water.
Celine took us and some of the other guests on a waterfall hike (at no charge other than the entrance to the park), which was absolutely stunning. If you're in good shape, it's not to be missed!
The hotel itself is lovely, colorful and unpretentious. The rooms are a good size, comfortable, AC, cable, and ours had a small kitchenette and a mini fridge. We enjoyed the pool every single day. Jaco isn't cheap for foreigners, so we took full advantage of the kitchenette to make our own meals. This hotel has such a relaxed vibe, and all the other guests were super friendly.
Mike and Celine have created a fantastic spot to enjoy the beach and nature surrounding Jaco. Can't thank them enough for such an awesome time. Pura Vida!
