The rooms are great they are big and well furnished for the 4 star rating. So too are the bathrooms.
The location is on a nice part of the beach and away from Central Jaco.
Looking at some of the other slightly cheaper options in town it wasn't bad.
The biggest thing is the value for money. For $200 a night in Costa Rica I was expecting a legitimate resort ( which you can get easily ).
It's not a legitimate resort. The layout of the pool etc is not a resort feel it's a small hotel pretending feel.
For almost the entire afternoon there was blaring music which drove all the guests away.
There is no evening feel, an empty restaurant and bar.
The staff sat around talking the only people there. Zero atmosphere.
None of the rooms face to sea the only windows in the rooms face the car park.
The quality of people at reception was patchy at best It took ages to help with the safe that didn't work (never did) the TV remote that was broken.
Apart from the music my biggest complaint is that there was no Wifi connectivity in my room on the 2nd floor. Unforgivable and had to go to reception to get any reception.
Some pluses but poor management and lack of atmosphere made this poor value for money. Some of the other reviews seem potentially very generous.
