Reviewed November 2, 2012

Recently stayed (Oct 25-26) at this boutique hotel in downtown Jaco, convenient location in town about 1/2 block to the beach. The Posada Jaco is safe, very clean, and quiet with nice pool and grounds and very attractively priced. Can't say enough about the wonderful owner/operators Rob & Margaret, very knowledgeable of the area and Moe is terrific! I will definitely stay here again. Thanx Rob & Margaret.

Spend the weekend in Jaco for a quick getaway, I have to say I had never heard of Posada Jaco, but I probably will return as soon as possible. Great little hotel, excellent location. Rooms are big enough, very clean and totally equipped! Nice pool area with a grill if you want to use it. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the price can't be beat for what you get.

I don't take time to review places unless I'm really impressed. The rooms are large and clean with lots of windows for ventilation.There is also air conditioning, but I prefer the evening breezes.The pool is lovely and there plenty of places to hang out, by the pool, on a deck overlooking the river, hammocks, and large tables to eat at. Barbecues are available to grill fresh fish bought from the market. It's a short walk to may great restaurants and most importantly for me, a short walk to the beach. I don't like to spend my time driving around on my time off to relax! I love the kitchenettes with a sink, cooking supplies and a refrigerator. It makes making the morning cup of coffee hassle free, and what a wonderful idea for families! I have stayed here a couple of times and I will be returning soon. I feel safe and secure, the owners are friendly and onsite, the staff friendly and overall a great experience, oh, and the price is right too!

Room Tip: I prefer the couch that pulls out, not the pull out bed in a couch, have to check which rooms. The b...

I stayed here for nearly a whole month and was very pleased with the cleanliness and the location, very close to the beach, great lounge and swimming pool area , a great view of the ocean and affordable, The owners are from australia and new zealand and are extremly friendly, welcoming and make you feel very comfortable here, this was definatly a home away from home for me- I will be back again for sure.

Thanks again for a marvelous stay!!

Great value, great service, and large, clean rooms!! This is definitely a great place to stay and the owners will help you plan any activity you are interested in doing. Very close to the beach and the central part of town. Highly recommended!

Traveled as a family , had booked when it was still Tommy Gs but had not been notified of hotel name & ownership change which we felt was strange as it was confusing for our taxi driver & us. With regard to the accommodation it is in need of some TLC which I hope the new owner addresses . We did not find the hotel to be very family friendly due to the apparent lack of rules which allowed noisy guests to be in the pool very late at night & to be woken by the same guests at 6am in the morning drinking beer ! We would of expected the owner to rectify this as he lives on site .Mind you we do not think jaco is a family friendly place anyway ,it ok if you are young & want to party , want to surf or a sex tourist !which was very apparent after dark, So if you are young & want somewhere cheap to stay give it a go.

Thank you very your review. We are sorry that Jaco did not meet your expectations. We have only recently taken over the hotel and have an ongoing programme of upgrades and maintenance. If you do return to the area I am sure you will see significant differences both in the town and the hotel.

We've stayed twice and will be back again. Very accommodating, very clean, and very comfortable. Really need to stay anywhere else. Just a short block from the beach with great views from the balcony.
