Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 10, 2009

Jaco didn't impress me at all as a town.
Despite the negative image I got from this town, this hotel/property was very relaxing and enjoyable! The Belgian owners were very friendly & helpful. With only about a dozen rooms and a beautiful pool & grounds, I'd definitely recommend this place for some rest & relaxation.
This hotel is located a hefty walk from the main drag. It was worth it to go into the town & buy food items to keep in the room's refrigerator. (Especially since the included breakfast was a few pieces of bread & tea as previously mentioned in the other review.)
My room #6 was a great stay at 65 USD per night. The bed was nice in a room where you can close the door to the outer kitchen area and be enclosed with A/C when desired. The bathroom was nice too (shower, etc.)
The pool area in between the guest rooms & small hotel restaurant was awesome! So relaxing! The water temp. was perfect and the tables/chairs were good for sunbathing. There are small trees & flowers all over the property that put a sweetly scented touch on your stay. (Nice memory for us who live in snow country!)
My one gripe would be that there were 2 poodle-like dogs in a room with a couple who stayed there. The dogs barked all the time! Between the barking and the guests who yelled in multiple languages for them to quiet down, it put a small dent in the relaxation.
There were various French-speaking guests as the owners are Belgian and the hotel's website is available in a few different languages.
I don't plan to hurry back to Jaco though would definitely stay at the Villa Creole in case I do.

Reviewed December 24, 2008

We needed a place to crash in Jaco while driving form Dominical to Montezuma and found Villa Creole based on a recommendation from a travel guide. The property is located a few blocks off the main drag on a quiet dead end street. Our room was very nice - modern with a full kitchen, comfortable bed, cable TV, and a large bathroom with plenty of hot water. The property had a nice pool but since we were only there one night we didn't use it.

The only disapointment was that our rate included breakfast but it only consisted of a few pieces of toast with some coffee grounds so we could make our own coffee in our room.
