“Wonderful hotel poor restaurant”
Review of Backyard Hotel

Backyard Hotel
Ranked #10 of 17 Restaurants in Playa Hermosa
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 15, 2016

We were worried that the noise from the bar next door would be too loud , we never heard it . What we did hear is the semi trucks breaking down the hill in front but not too bad . I would classify this as almost boutique hotel , I think only 8 rooms , all very roomy and clean huge balcony with some view of the ocean and warm pool . The beach is awesom , great surf spot ( much better then Jaco ) . They have a security guard at night and they lock the parking gate . No it is not a crime area but to get in or out the front desk person or security guard opens the remote gate . The pool is warm and clean . Maybe 83 degrees . There are not a lot of hotels in this town and all are small so beach is very private . If we stay in Jaco again I will stay here . Ask for second floor , the windows and slider door are 8 feet tall so at night we never closed our curtains ,on the first floor you need to for privacy .

This is a great location on Playa Hermosa for anyone looking to stay near the action. Just out of Jaco but on the main drag and not far. The rooms are nicely done, beautiful exposed wood construction. Some room can accommodate several travelers.

We stayed here for one night (while waiting for friends' house to be available), and ate at the restaurant 3 or 4 times over a week staying in the area.

This is a great, well-run place! Everyone is nice, the facility is clean, food is really good, beach tables are awesome. the bar is lively - all around great place. The hotel rooms were comfortable, clean and perfect for what we needed!

They have everything you would want to eat plus made superbly. Not one bad meal. Even Breakfast was offered local fare plus what you expected.

Our party of three ordered in total 6 bacon slices (over cooked or burned), 4 pancakes (cold and small), 2 cokes, and 1 black coffee. Our total was overpriced at $30.00. The food took close to 30 minutes to arrive and we had to find the waitress to collect our bill. The ocean view was nice but the trash in the beach seating area from the night before (the place is used as a night club in the evenings) was unappealing. During our 8 day stay we did not eat there again even though it was only 4 doors down from our villa.
