Johan is a very nice manager, who helped me to get around in Jaco, with bus to Carara NP and my next destination and he helped me to solve an issue with a shuttle company. Nice and clean room with kitchenette. I felt at home away from home!

I just wanted to let folks know that the Posada Jaco Hotel is hands down the best value for lodging in the Jaco area. After receiving kind, accurate, and valuable information from Margaret (Aussie owned establishment and who helps the local critters at the animal shelter) I was shown a super clean and quiet 1 bedroom unit. An awesome swimming...

I was part of a mission team of eight who stayed at the hotel for seven days. The hotel staff from the front desk to the cleaning lady Joanna did an excellent job and was very attentive to any needs we might have. They have a pool, deck, and patio and all are kept very clean. All rooms have the...

Posada was a nice stay right in the heart of Jaco. It is just a brief walk to the beach and is very conveniently located. Our team serves in Tarcoles, and it was close enough to be very nice for our team. The owner, Rob, is great with local information and really personable. The rooms are clean and great for...

My mission team used this hotel for our week-long trip and it was perfect!! The rooms were spacious enough to comfortably fit four people (although the beds were slightly uncomfortable, but not terrible), and having a fully equipped kitchen (no stove, but a microwave, toaster, coffee pot, hot plates, fridge, and freezer) was a huge plus! Not to mention there's...

Breath of fresh air for the wallet and the area. Brilliant location just a short walk from the beach and literally around the corner from shops, restaurants and nightlife of Jaco. Yes, there are other higher-end places, but you pay. Yes, there are much cheaper places, but there is security to consider. I stayed on the ground floor just by...

La Posada was clean, comfortable, and safe. Close to beach, restaurants, shops, literally steps from everything. Management was very friendly and always available. Nice to have a small kitchen with full size fridge, and well working air condition.

It was a great place to come back to after a long day out! Very relaxing and a great patio for us to all hang out on! The rooms are nicely air conditioned and being able to communicate with my parents on the free wifi was always great!

This person Did not stay at Posada Jaco Hotel. They stayed at Maumar hotel. This hotel is very popular with Costa Ricans not surfers. It seems you did not like Jaco and took it out on the hotel.

I was here with my husband and 2 children (ages 3 and 4). The location was great in that it was in downtown, walking distance to everything. It was clean enough and the staff (hi Gary!) speaks perfect english and was a wonderful host. And it was very affordably priced. But for me, that's about where it ends. Our room...

Thank you for your review. First up I would like to say that the hotel you stayed in was NOT the Posada Jaco but the Maumar hotel which is located next door to the posada Jaco. In response to your comments; 1. It is the wet season and if you leave the doors or windows open you will get Mosquitos....
