This hotel is located in the northern most part of Jaco and is right on the beach. Im gonna try to point out as much as I can with this review.
The Hotel... The rooms are relatively small but cozy. This is not a 5 star hotel but you are definately getting your money worth. Each room is equipped with a safe. They do have free WiFi. The hotel has its own parking lot that is secured by a guard 24/7. You are allowed to bring guests to your room, they just have to be checked in by the guard on duty.
The Bar & Grill...... The only complaint I have here is that they close at midnight because this place is amazing. The entire atmosphere is great, always packed with a good crowd and the food and drinks taste great. The menu has a good variety and you can have finger foods for as low as 2000 colones($4 dollars). The beers cost around 1500 colones ($3 dollars) A great place to enjoy yourself, you can even take your beer to the beach and just relax in the sun. Theres also a swim up bar in the pool, but that was closed during my stay there. One thing I noticed about some of these reviews was that people didnt find the bar staff to be friendly.........I disagree. The entire staff was amazing and friendly, and always open for conversation no matter how busy it would get, the girls always managed to carry their service with a smile.
The Final Say........Yes I recommend this place. The beach in this part of Jaco is a lot cleaner than southern Jaco and gets bigger and better crowds than southern Jaco. You have the feel of being on a resort. The main strip with all the stores and nightlife is only a 5 minute walk or you can take a cab for only 2 dollars. Ive stayed in numerous parts of Costa Rica, and Jaco is def my favorite. I will be returning in a few months to purchase a condo. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about this place or any other
