“Very nice hotel with nice rooms and good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

The hotel is really very nice - it is like a tropical garden (don't mix it with Morgan's Cove Casino!).
The personal was very friendly. The rooms were basic but very convinient and clean.
The usual costa-rican breakfast consisted as always from some fruits +coffee + toast + butter - not very much for a usual European - so be prepared to take another breakfast right after it somewhere else. Alternatively you can pay in the restaurant to get a different type of breakfast.
It should be stressed that the ambient of the hotel is really nice - many palms - it is safe and quiet. The entrance is supervised by the personal so that not everyone enters.

In the most basic room, everywhere around the world there is a little refrigerator. In our room, no refrigerator. And when we asked for it, the hotel did not have one on that day because someone else was using it and if we wanted one on the next day, we had to pay 6$ per day!!! (usually it is included). I visited a lot places, and it is the first time I have this problem. Second, in the description of the room, there was supposed to be a coffee machine, there was none. And it did not appear when we asked either. Breakfast is not satisfying at all. This hotel is not worth for an all inlcusive either, from what we saw: there is no buffet and the meals that are served are very cheap even for those who have paid the all inclusive price. Even if you're on a budget, you can find better. There are a lot of good B&B around Jaco and even Hostels can be better than this.

Room Tip: Apparently it is good to choose the room with the kitchenette (where there is a fridge and a space t...

For budget travellers who don't like the size and noise of a typical all-inclusive, this place is a bit of a find. The grounds surrounding the lovely pool are gorgeous, and the nearby shaded hammocks are a total bliss-out. You're never more than a hop and skip from your room, so it's more like staying at a friend's country retreat than some sort of Club Med. No blaring music, no hyper staff. An intimate place, with friendly staff, and guests who quickly get to know one another over a week or two. If you booked it with a block of friends, you'd have an amazing time. The food is serviceable, but not great. Plan to eat a few nights out in the town, where fresh fish abounds. Our room was clean, with great air conditioning, which was all we needed. Request a ground-floor room or villa, so that you get an outdoor table.

Had reservations at this "motel" for 5 nights, stayed 3 nights!! Only stayed 3 because had fishing reservations booked for 2 days.. The rooms are VERY small, beds are really uncomfortable, mattress may have been 5 inches thick!! Pillows felt stuffed with filler used in stuffed animals..Air condition barely cooled the small room. 9 in TV, no closet. The breakfast that was included was edible, that's it.
The staff was very friendly..
I hate leaving reviews like this but in this case felt it necessary..

We enjoyed our stay in Morgan's Cove Central. The bungalows are perfect for a family that is traveling together….they have a small kitchen with refridgerator. It is about one block from the beach and has a beautiful pool. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

We stayed in a standard room, the room was basic but we thought the staff and food were great. Loved the hammock area, and the pool was a nice size. Good value for your money, great for couples who go out to explore jaco downtown area. Its not right on the beach but in close walking distance.
