Location Location
The hotel itself and staff are fantastic. Every time I saw the staff they asked if everything was OK and ensured everything was perfect at all times. You cannot beat the location we could hear the ocean and away from the city noise of Jaco. Yet the location was close enough to Jaco and all of the attractions which made it perfect.

Security guard is a creeper snd you need to watch out for him, late at night I was outside not feeling well and he tried to get me to go down to the beach with him. Besides him I liked the place a lot

The only thing I didn’t like about this hotel is that is very near the Main Street and it’s very noisy, you can hear the 18 wheeler go. by. Also it goes not have a restaurant.

Beautiful hotel right on the beach. Room was spacious. Would have liked to have a microwave as the hotel did not have a restaurant. Rooms facing the street hear lots of road noise. Staff was attentive and eager to please.
