A bit late sending this review, My stay was end of January thru early Feb, about 10 days, Listen everyone, I have read the reviews for Clarita's.....likely all that have been ever written.......and I truly must say that I do not understand he negative ones, we all have different tastes, if your requirement is staying in 5 Star nice and fluffy bed hotel......which by the way I have done as well, Do not come to Clarita's, However, if you can accept a laid back atmosphere (Except for Thursday $1 beer nights and Kareoke night!! LOL) then this place is a must do, the rooms are truly clean..REALLY, they are basic but as I said are clean , the air conditioning will freeze you out! There is a fridge, so feel free to run to the mercado for whatever. The pool is CLEAN......and a ball to hang out in...........go with the flow, meet cool people, talk with Dave (manager), talk with the cleaning girls, the bar girls, the couples, the singles, the security guys (must know espanol!), everyone is friendly......as many say the security is there 24/7.......every staff member works hard to keep the place clean and fun. I was there with 2 friends who were there with me before and 2 guys (friends of a friend), the 2 new guys cannot wait to return to Clarita's..........and they stayed at 2 other "highly rated" hotels during their travel in CR...........their thought? Only Clarita's for future trips to Jaco. Same for me......and hope to be there again in June..
