Hotel Poseidon y Restaurante
Ranked #18 of 41 Hotels in Jaco
Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

We staid here for one night on the way to Montezuma. Jaco isn't really a great place (lots of drunk tourists, and prostitutes) but this hotel is nice for the area. Not on the beach but just a block away. It is a little expensive for what you get but everything in jaco is. If your looking for a place for the night this hotel isn't a bad choice.

Hotel Poseidon is a two minute walk from a great surf beach. If you are the type to pick everything apart, stay somewhere else. Our shower leaked, the toilet ran, and it is obviously not a brand new hotel. Having said that, this place is a blast and has some of the nicest, most helpful staff you will find anywhere.

The hotel is like Jaco - gritty and real. The pool is great for cooling off after you come out of the ocean. It has bar seats and a corner seating area. The restaurant is top-notch - the tuna steak and ribs are beyond description. Our air conditioner did a great job, and our room was comfortable.

If you like the whole beach experience, this place is for you. You can walk anywhere, and there is more to see and do than you can do in a week. The other turistas provide plenty of entertainment; you will meet people from all over.

We will stay there again - no doubt.

A small boutique style hotel run by some really nice people from Colorado, my home state. Tim, the owner was very helpful and accomedating. Good clean acomendations for the price with EXCELLENT food, also very reasonably priced. I would go ther just for a meal! Staff is well trained and all always smiling. A good ground zero for the single "sportsman".

Hotel Poseidon was the perfect jumping off spot to see and do everything we wanted. Tim and Chrissy (owners) were very helpful in planing outings and excursions. Took a trip to Monteverde that was enhanced by Tim's suggestions and help with planning. The entire staff of the hotel are very welcoming and helpful - even guiding us to some of the best shops - not touristy.

While traveling with my sister I ended up needing a room last minute at 10:30 pm never a great situation and got on trip advisor for help. I was a bit nervous after seeing a few reviews but figured we better check it out. We were warmly greeted and luckily a room or two left. The parking was secure the room was clean, of good size, hot showers, the pool was cute the restaurant was cute. The owner Tim kindly guided us to a great local spot for a late night meal and showed us some highlight night spots to visit. Jaco is small but it's hard to know where to go and this hotel/restaurant is in the middle of it all! The restaurant has an awesome menu and I am quite the foodie. I was very impressed best meal we had in CR... I would happily stay there again. PS for a quiet peaceful beach playa Herrmosa is ten minutes up the street.

Thanks Tim and Team for another fantastic stay at your hotel in Jaco! As always, everything went smoothly. The restaurant was perfect and the staff wonderful. To be in the middle of the action in Jaco while only a few yards from the beach, Hotel Poseidon is the place to be.

We will see you again next year.
