This hotel is beach front and all inclusive. This alone is a bonus and worthy of 5 stars. However, Best Western is not synonymous w/ luxury. The rooms here are bare bones w/ simple beds & baths & quite small. This is not a bad thing depending upon your expectations in Jaco. The rate was $90/pp a night which was the cheapest of our trip. $180 a night for 2 souls is a steal since the 3 meals per diem and drinks daily are spot on. But, the rooms leave much to be desired so your money is really directed towards the phenomenal buffet meals. There are numerous Ticos/locals that frequent this locale so this shows you how reasonable this spot is. :)
The grounds, location, pool & service are all top notch. Although, you won't get any exemplary service here if you're expecting 5 star service. The all inclusive meals will offest your otherwise expected adventures.
Jaco is a fun, yet suspect city among many adjacent locales. Drugs are evident here and prostitution is totally legal. Day and night, you'll see the hookers. The ladies are aggressive so if you bring the family and/or kids.....beware. This doesn't detract from the beautiful town of Jaco, but nights here near the Beatle Bar are all about prostitution. The expats are abound so keep this in mind while frequenting Jaco. The ladies outnumber the men 8 to 1. Yeah, it's that crazy in Jaco and rare except for the famous joint in San Jose.
Overall, great hotel in North Jaco that caters to Ticos and tourists alike. 5 star amenities, 3 star rooms, 4 star staff, 5 star location on the beach & 3 star location in Jaco (this town has prostitution & tourism written all over it, so plan accordingly.) :) You'll have fun at the Best Western regardless of your intentions in Jaco...sun, beach, pools, drinks, locals, hookers...take ur pick! It's all good stuff!
