6/10 Good

Sadly lacking
This was one of our favourite places to stay in Jaco. We love the location and it’s right on the beach. Sadly it was not the same this time. The rooms and service were all excellent. The music at the pool and beach was excessively loud all day. We could not even read or relax. The lounge chairs at the beach are almost all broken. The umbrellas that are usually at the pool to provide the necessary shade were all gone. The staff said they were being repaired! Since these are shown in the listing room pictures and description I was not impressed. I am sad to say we will be looking for a new hotel in Jaco.

8/10 Very good

Great location and lovely team.
Lovely location right on the beach and lovely check in team. Rooms were clean and great with air con. Only issue was the bathroom door locked itself and at breakfast they wouldn’t let us have a juice and a coffee only one or the other. Very small issues, would definitely recommend.

Verified Expedia guest review

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel has its share of a long stretch of wide beach (fine sand, but not white), and our room has partial ocean view. We were happy with the location and the services. The amenities are a little old, but the views and convenience made up for it. There was no hot water on our second day and night there.
