I had the opportunity to stay Hotel DoceLunas in Jaco, Costa Rica in January, 2013 and had a wonderful time there. It was nice to be in a property set away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Jaco, The grounds of the hotel, located at the base of the jungle covered mountainside, are very peaceful. It is very easy to get in and out of Jaco, which is just a short and inexpensive cab ride away (or if you want a good walk.) During my stay, I took advantage of all the amenities offered at the hotel including my first ever yoga class with one of their frequent special guest instructors, and wonderful spa services including a great massage and a men’s manicure/pedicure. The food at the hotel restaurant was top notch and the outdoor (covered) dining was particularly pleasant. The bar also provided for a nice place to have an end of the day cocktail. The pool was very refreshing and made for a nice way to cool off before and after our days adventures around Costa Rica. The rooms were very clean and spacious – with large bathrooms and a double sink. The hotel staff was very friendly, helpful and responsive. What more could you ask for on your getaway?

I had the pleasure or returning once again to the Twelve Moons for this year's Jungle Jam and it stills holds a special place for me. This is an ideal setting for most anything and to spending three solid nights of listening to great music from dusk to dawn makes it even more special. The grounds are great, pool super cool with its waterfall feature, food ALWAYS great, (they roasted and served pulled pork amongst other local fare) and the management loving and caring. I am going to make every effort to be back again next year and bring some friends Thanks for setting up the big screen so we could see the playoff games on Sunday..despite who won.

Room Tip: Depending on whether you want to spend a few more bucks and get a suite (worth it) or need a double...

I just wanted to thank the staff at DoceLunas for making our vacation such a great experience. My friend and I had so much fun. We couldn't have asked for a better time! Everybody was so nice and helpful, the food was delicious, room and grounds very clean. DoceLunas is a great place too stay. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Jaco. Jungle Jam Rocked! Look forward to hopefully coming back in the future.
Thanks Again,

Hotel docelunas was the perfect place for our stay in Costa Rica! The natural beauty of the hotel grounds is simply incredible...The staff was kind and always helpful, rooms were lovely and clean, awesome pool, its close by the beach... I can't imagine there's a nicer place to stay in Jaco. We will surely be back for Jungle Jam 2014.

this is my 4th year staying at this resort. this was the first time with my girlfriend. she loved it. we spent lots off time in the pool, and everywhere else between the pool and the bar. the food was excellent, although i am still surprised by the difference in speed of service versus the american mode of get em in and out quick. much more relaxing than what im used to.
The room was nice with a large comfy king size bed. We emptied the mini bar fridge and filled it with supplies from town. the maids and all staff were tremendously helpful, and spoke decent to great english. Sad to say i have yet to learn spanish after four trips here.

Room Tip: choose the single bed rooms as they also have a couch

We were here with family and friends for a wedding. Loved the location, edge of rain forrest and in walking distance to downtown Jaco and the beach. The resort is breathtaking! You would never know that it was full to capacity. Extremely peaceful and quiet except for the sound of the birds and other wildlife. Plenty of wildlife, ( including tucans, scarlet mawcaws, iguanas, just to name a few). The pool was clean, and perfect temp. You could swim all night as long as you were quiet. The yoga classes, taught by Annabelle and Laura, were the best I ever had and although I am a straight heterosexual female, couldn't take my eyes off how stunningly gorgeous they were. It is a gated resort with 24 hour security and extremely safe. The staff, owner and manager will go out of their way to accommadate your every whim and make you feel over the top special. I can honestly say, I have never felt so relaxed and energized. We also enjoyed the zip lining, surfing and horseback riding in the rain forrest excursions that the staff and Manager Bryon arranged for us. Remember his name, he makes magic happen.
Now for the cons: Our room was extremely too dark, except for the very large bathroom. I was in friend's rooms (5),that were beautiful and well lit. The pool lounge chairs are in really poor shape and need replacing. Other than those minor things, we would go back in a heartbeat and actually plan to in the near future.

Room Tip: Ask for any of the ones with a high ceiling.
