“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

I went to this small hotel with my wife for our 31st wedding anniversary, and we found it fantastic. It is clean, quite and relaxing. Close to the beach (about 800 meters), and close to the Jacó down town. It doesn't have restaurant, but they serve a good breakfast. I recommend this hotel for those who want to relax. Marcos from Cartago, Costa Rica.

Lovely cosy beautiful hotel and owners!!
Beautiful clean rooms in a quite area, perfect for relaxing. Cosy swimming pool. Love that the rooms have little kitchen and tables outside of each room, it's a like a little house!!
Thank you so much! If ever back to Jaco, definitely stay there again and again! Even if might be not close to the beach, but easy to rent a bikes and enjoy it :) !!

Nicholas, Jany and staff are very welcoming, accommodating and friendly. My husband and I had the most memorable honeymoon here. The hotel is very clean, peaceful and close to everything. We felt like we were all alone in paradise. We had a very relaxing time here. We hope to be back soon. Thank you for making our stay to be a one-of-a-kind. You're the BEST!!! :-)

Jena & Nicolas were awesome. Great hosts! Grounds were beautiful. You can tell they take great pride in their piece of heaven. Rooms were gorgeous. They are carefully renovating each room to make it unique.

Room Tip: Room 10 is fully renovated and is gorgeous-just bring your shampoo & soap.

Villa Creole is my favourite stay when i am in Jaco because:
- eccellent price for what you get
- friendly and relaxed staff
- quiet and off the crowd location but still a few hundred yards from the main bulevard
- beautiful gardening and rooms
- huge and deep pool

Room Tip: all rooms are equal good

Originally booked for 3 nights but ended up staying for 4. The hotels is set about 400m back from the beach and takes less than 10 minutes to walk to the main strip, and is located in a very nice upper class neighbourhood. The suite was clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities promised: full kitchen (minus the oven), comfortable bedroom with strong AC, ample closet space, safe, flat-screen wall mounted TV, and big bathroom. The property itself is well-maintained and the pool very nice and great after morning hikes! The owners were extremely kind and helpful, assisting us with car reservations and arranging transportation to the airport. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Jaco!

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 10 are recently renovated, the others to be followed soon!
