“Nice place - had all we wanted”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2006

Stayed at the Tangeri for 5 nights and had a great time. Although I could not find the hotel at ------ we were pleased to see it's central location in the town. We could walk everywhere (although cab rides were only about $1 in town). The hotel is very spread out on nice lush grounds, we had a beach front room for about $100 a night. Note the beach is still a ways away and is all rocks and leaves little to be desired. If you like the beach Jaco is not your place... The hotel staff is knowledgeable and most speak decent English. The pool area is nice, plenty of iguanas around although one of the people in our party had a severe cut on his foot because of a missing tile in the pool. The AC in the room worked well, showers did not have "hot" water but it was ok since the temperature stayed about 90 F the whole trip. We were on a bachelor party and we never bothered anyone although many families were staying there as well.

Restaurant has good food as well. We went fishing out of Los Suenos and brought back some Tuna which the hotel (see Ronald) cooked for us to order with rice and vegetables for only $2.50 a plate... You just can't beat that.

As for Jaco in general it's a great place for whatever you want to do. Definitely going back and stay at the Tangeri! One thing, the town is definitely growing as there were at least 3 tower cranes in place already (building new condos). The Tangeri still has a small resort town feel to it (and I hope that does not change)

Stayed at the Tangeri last week. I also had one of the six ocean front rooms mentioned in the previous post. But I was on the first floor. A great view except during the weekend when many come down from San Jose and camp on the beach. I can only echo the comments below. The rooms were nice and clean. The large remote control air conditioner was great as it is always very hot in Jaco. Note the free breakfast is only on the two lowest cost selections on the menu. But I had the most expensive breakfast every day and only once did I have to pay any extra. Great place for a Jaco stay.

We just stayed at the Tangeri for twelve nights in February. I will not be redundant since the last review describes the hotel very well. We stayed in one of the six ocean front rooms. It was soooo wonderful with a balcony overlooking the Pacific and beautiful sunsets. The grounds at this hotel are very nice with a covered veranda, three pools(one for kids), and a nice playground. We were traveling with a three year old so this was great for us. There are iguanas everywhere. The hotel bar near the pool was great although be prepared for a long wait if you order food. They bring the food up from the restaurant at the street and service in Costa Rica is slow. I don't mean that negatively, it's just the way they operate there, very relaxed and never in a hurry. The hotel staff are VERY helpful and provide excellent service. The only small complaint is they have inline electric hot water heaters on the showers which take some getting used to, but this is a small inconvenience. It is so hot there that you probably won't want a really hot shower anyway.
As a footnote, right in front of the hotel, you will find the tour operator. His name is David Shulda and it looks at first just like a diving and fishing operation called the Golden Rod. But believe me, this is much more than just fishing and diving. David is an English speaking American and he can arrange ANYTHING that you want to do in Costa Rica. He made our vacation excellent. I would talk to him everyday and let him know what I wanted to do and he arranged it all. Unless you have been to Jaco lots and you know what you want, talk to Dave and he will get you headed in the right direction rather than trying to deal with unknown tour operators. The fishing and diving are excellent as well as all the other activities offered. Good luck and Pura Vida.

First of all, Jaco is not a 4 star town, unless you want to be active or party with a vengeance, then it's THE BOMB!!! Ergo, the Tangeri is the prime spot. Right smack in the middle of town, you have your choice of rooms with an ocean view or small to large bungalows. They're all A/C equipped, and have a nice living room, eat -in kitchen, though the fridge was a little warm. The staff was quickto help with a plumbing problem. Again , these are not luxury accommodations, but the service provided was immeasurably warm and friendly. Right across the street is a great bar with about 12 pool tables, and to the right and to the left are bars, shops and restaurants, just watch out for potholes, uneven sidewalks and fast drivers (especially after the bars at night!!) Of course, WHEN you stop partying is up to you, if the place is packed, it'll stay open til sunrise. I went with my buddies in November, which is the end of the rain season so it was kinda slow, but diehards are there all year round. I personally blacked out my first night, then took it easy the rest of my time there!! The beach is black sand, and surfers came from all over the world. Say hi to the transplanted gringos at the Neptune Hotel, the chef is great, just watch out for the Cuban bartender,she'll steal your heart!!
