Thankfully we only booked for 1 night. No service at all, Securityguard with a gun was needed to watch our car. Filthy very fat German owner didn’t care about anything except his beer. We felt very unsafe here. Didn’t even try the included breakfast or pool. Would not advise to go here. It could be because we were here in...

I am not talking about the rehearsed training the majority of the staff gets at big name places; I am talking about truly caring for you but not being overwhelmed type place. Excellent food, I mean yummy good and good prices....

We loved not being in the middle of Jaco and still had an ocean view from our room. The AC works well, the shower is relaxing and stays at a constant temperature, and the room was spotless. Very nice little place. Yay for German efficiency!! :)

We stayed two nights and we will stay more nights next time. They are located very close to the beach and they have the best location in Jaco for the beach sand quality and cleanliness. The room was clean, we had two double beds, air conditioning, hot shower and the breakfast (not included) very good. A large pool was front...

A good ending by the beach to a fantastic 10 days in Costa Rica. My wife booked online, and I was a bit concerned! - was very happy with it in the end. There were a couple of bad reviews on trip advisor, and I thought I would correct them!!
