Management was friendly, helpful and even greeted us with a welcome drink. Room was spacious & clean. Breakfast couldn't have been better, served under a tiki hut. Located in a quiet, serene area just 3 -5 minute drive from busy downtown.

most beautiful hotel in Jaco. Lovely, private grounds. Great pool. not too many rooms. This place is great because it's not near all the other hotels in town. We had a few friends stay here before us and the property was just as breathtaking as they had mentioned.
