“Great place !”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We stayed here as a family and had a great experience.
Easy access to the beach via a very short taxi ride.
Away from all the partying in Jaco, but close enough to shop for souvenirs and enjoy the restaurants.
Hotel has a great pool with beautiful landscaping and beautiful views !
Nice owners, good breakfast, cute dog to play with, and beautiful views !

Room Tip: Some rooms have air conditioning.

A very clean and secluded locale with a beautiful view. Safe on the side of a hill overlooking Jaco and the Pacific Ocean. Julianna, James, and Desmond were very friendly hosts and their tip about the Pura Vida botanical gardens was a great suggestion. We stayed in cottage seven because it has a watch tour that you can climb into and get a super view of the countryside. Only downside was the humidity and the need for AC, which cabina seven did not have. We would recommend this based on cleanliness, value, and hospitality!

Room Tip: Choose a room with AC, although ceilng fans and floor fans were efficient.

We, 2 adults and 6 and 12 year old kids, started our trip in CR here and it was excellent. Clean rooms, nice fresh breakfast, excellent pool, lovely dog and very helpfull Juliana who owns the place. It is away from the crowds in Jaco, but a very good place to make daytrips to other places like manuel antonio or carare. We wish this place the best luck!!

This hotel is a gem in Jaco! Quiet, safe, and very clean - I would never want to stay anywhere else in Jaco. Now, if you want to be right in the middle of the party this may not be the spot for you - but if you want to see beautiful views, have a fantastic breakfast, lovely and welcoming hosts, and feel like you're settling in for a night at home when you get in bed - then I would highly recommend Vista Pacifico.

Room Tip: Not every room has AC, if you definitely want it make sure to ask for a room with it!

I have seen this hotel from a distance for many years now as it sits high upon a hill with the HOTEL sign like the HOLLYWOOD sign in Los Angeles. I recently stayed here after reading the great reviews of others here on Trip Advisor. This hotel / Inn is a real gem. It seems far from the center of town but it really isn't. If you don't have a car, taxi's are ready available for pick up or return. The buildings have a Spanish Colonial look and feel to it but are actually quite new, clean, and modern. The hosts are all family and take great care of their clients and pride in their family business. Breakfast is great ! The gardens, pool, and BBQ area are an excellent place to relax and be away from the noise of the city yet convenient to get there. The rooms are quite comfortable with very comfy beds.. I have stayed in many Inn type hotels all over Costa Rica and especially Jaco. This is by far the best value for the money . I highly recommend you give this small hotel inn a try. I will certainly be back. Danno

This is a beautiful location for jaco, Costa Rica. If peace is your thing, this is the place... There are two spectacular views on either side of the hotel day or night. The owners are very nice and well versed in hotel management and there’s a very nice breakfast. If you need A/C, make sure you ask. Depending on the season, A/C is really nice after a day on the beach. It's just on the edge of town, yet only a quick cab ride to downtown. There are a bunch of power lines that somewhat obstruct the ocean view, but you can see past them. (Sort of...)
My stay was very peaceful and being that high above the city made for some wonderful views. The beds are not made for sleeping in... Thinnest mattresses I've ever been on, but again it's Jaco!

Room Tip: Ask for A/C.... It's not in all rooms...

Our family of four spent a lovely week here. We arrived early in the morning, yet were still allowed to check in early. Thank you! :) The room we originally booked (7), was not yet ready due to our early arrival, but we were put in unit 1, which was identical to 7. We were served breakfast, cooled off in the pool, and were made to feel right at home.

Juliana and James were wonderful hosts, giving us extremely useful tips and directions. They gave us excellent recommendations for everything...where to eat, where to buy groceries, maps and directions to attractions, booked a tour for us, and even helped us book our rental car. We were so impressed by their genuine kindness and helpfulness.

The hotel is in excellent condition, very clean, and well-maintained. Because we were there in April, the temperatures were quite hot, so I would recommend a unit with A/C if you can get one.

We got a unit with a kitchen, and that helped save us on dining costs. Units 1 and 7 are small apartments, with a large common patio, kitchen, and a bathroom on the first floor, beds, a balcony, and another bathroom on the second floor, and a ladder that leads up to a tower on the "third" floor. You can open up the windows to let in a cool breeze and there's a spectacular view from the top.

Breakfast is yummy...yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, muffins, bagels, cinnamon bread, and pastries. Fresh juices and delicious, freshly-brewed coffee were also served. The dining terrace is lovely, with great views of the landscape and beautiful sunsets in the evening.

The hotel is located on the top of a hill, away from the city of Jaco. For about $5-$6, you can take a taxi to the center of the city, only about 5-10 minutes away, depending on where you want to go. Renting a car is a great idea if you want to get around and see more sites outside of the city. It was easy, and affordable.

This is a great, family-friendly establishment for travelers who want an authentic, peaceful, and lovely environment. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, and hope to return again someday. Thank you again for your hospitality. :)

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 7 are small apartments with a third-floor tower that has amazing views.
