Rooms are clean, staff is extremely friendly. Great views, close to downtown Jaco (5 minute walk). It is a great price but I was deceived by the fact that not every room comes with a fridge and microwave, one of the reasons why I chose to stay here over the Hilton. Everything is expected for the price that you pay, other than two things. We had a room on the fourth floor and the WiFi only sometimes works. The beach is very rocky and not very good for swimming, this would not be much of a ... Read more

We spent our last two days in Costa Rica here. I was pleasantly surprised... The room and dinning area was clean! We loved how open everything was. We had a pool view room, but there was a great view of the beach and ocean from the hallway and the dinning room. The pool was nice, but the fountain did not seem to be working. It was really cool to see Iguanas everywhere!!! The bar was just off the beach and made the BEST frozen lemonades! This was a nice place to finish up our trip. FYI, the room... Read more

The food was plentiful, but a bit repetitive. The bar restaurant was the same everyday and not very good. The dining room was great for breakfast and lunch and ok for dinner. We were there Wednesday-Sunday. The resort was quiet until Friday and Saturday night when the locals flocked in and was very very loud until around 1:00 a.m.

The staff was very nice and the property was clean. For less than $1xx all inclusive for me it was great value. The breakfast was great, the dinner was good. Lunch needs some help. Had few maintenance issues they took care of. I did not understand why ac could not keep up with curtains open. On last day noticed one of Windows missing slat of glass.. Over all good c grade motel but all inclusive gave me good value. Not sure what would cost with many people.

Disclaimer: my friend and I are both avid, young world travelers who have visited Costa Rica and other Latin American countries on multiple occasions. This location was chosen for us by our travel agent, whom we immediately ceased working with after this stay. To be completely honest, from the moment we parked - we knew we were going to be let down. This resort is your classic, carbon-copy, tacky American-style getaway for lower middle class families and their several children. The first thi... Read more

The rooms aren't very nice. I was very disappointed that they don't let you drink at the pool, when other hotels even have a wet bar. The food was ok. It's all inclusive food and drinks, but I believe that the drinks were watered down, because I'm not much of a drinker and had like 10 drinks and didn't even get a bit tipsy.

Old hotel. Staff not friendly. Food was not great. Worst all inclusive I've ever stayed in. Town was sketchy. This hotel was part of our groupon and we wished we would have skipped it. So many other better places to go. We learned later that Jaco is the place to go for all your bachelor parties. There is for sure a dank undertone to the place. The hotel itself was under some construction. But breakfast was supposed to open at 615am. We had a tour pickup at 630 and the place was s... Read more

I had a great time! The resort had friendly staff and the room was clean. I hung out at the pool lots which was enjoyable. It only has one restaurant. It would be nice if it had a second option. The resort is really small compared to most all inclusive resorts. It's much more of a family vacation resort.

The reception treated us wonderfully, but after that the hotel is tired looking, and so are the rooms and I don't feel clean. I would not recommend this hotel and would suggest another outside of the town.

The check in process was a pain. We got there early (1:15 pm) and they had us fill out the paperwork and come back at 2, they would not let us walk around or check out pool or anything, we had to leave the property. Then we come back at 2pm and they give us a wristband that lets us on the property but does not let us eat or drink. So since that wristband existed why not let us have that at 1:15? So they tell us to come back to the desk and switch out our wristband for the regular one at 3pm but ... Read more

This hotel is older but is undergoing a bit of a facelift. The front desk area and some of the grounds were "under construction" while we were there. Not much noise or dust from the construction. The front desk and concierge station were always helpful and friendly. Security staff, on the other hand, were a bit nasty at times. Staring through dark sunglasses was their favorite thing to do. (Everyone got their glares not just the bikini clad) And the security cameras were pointed out to me by sev... Read more

Strike One - they couldn't find our 2 week reservation. (That should have been a sign!). They found us a room after an hour. Can't fault the front desk staff, they were as embarrassed as we were. Strike Two - no water pressure - had to use ice bucket to fill with sink water to shower. Toilets - inconsistent flushing. Up, down, sideways - ya had to keep your sense of humor to get the job done. Strike Three - pool closed at 7:00 PM and rooms under construction across the hall. We used the hot... Read more

The beach is wonderful. Temps were mid 40ties and at times I needed A/C to cool down. Tried beer and cocktails as well. :) we had to run to beach during mid day using the shadows of the palm trees lining up to the beach that's how hot the sand was.

We had a great time at Best western Jaco . The building was under construction when we were there (it needs a lot of work). All the bartenders were great and the buffet staff was excellent. The pool is small and the ocean is not the best. I wish the building was in better conditions and that they had a king size bed with a larger pool.

Great trip!! Will go again!! There is plenty to do at the resort. Beautiful pool, nice beach to take a long walk. Jack Beach is more of a surfing beach than anything. Not far from walking into town. It is better to go shopping, walking during the day when it's safe and you can see better too.

Now unto the negatives: 1) Early Check-in. I am from Jamaica, every single all inclusive hotel here will check you in before the check in time, but you may not receive a room if its not ready. At this hotel, we had to wait exactly until check-in time to get our arm bands to even get access to the bar or restaurant... Read more

The common areas were clean. The bathroom was fine. But the room felt muggy and gross. The rooms have those old jalousie windows. One of the panes was missing in my room. There was a cricket in one of my friends room and the cold water didn't work in my other friend's room. The food was mediocre. The desserts were not cold and the soups were not hot. The drinks were watered down. We were supposed to stay there 4 nights but left after the first night.

This is a great all-inclusive right on the beach. It was appropriate for what we needed, as we wanted to just relax for the week and not worry about food or drinks if we didn't want to. The bartenders are phenomenal characters who made everything fun. The bar always had something at night, even though it is the down season. We only used the pool once, because the ocean was spectacular. You could walk out forever without being more than waist-deep, but you could still surf. The water and po... Read more

I live in Costa Rica and have stayed at different all inclusive hotels over the years. I found this one to have a wonderful buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very good waffles. The selection of vegetables was great and well prepared. Salad bar was always fresh. Restaurant and buffet were very clean and plenty of staff. We arrived at 7pm and had no problem with checking in. Our room was on the ground floor, definitely no frills but it has the basics for a comfortable stay.

The hotel is okay. not terrible and not great. The biggest issue is that the open concept lobby is near the rooms, so it is very loud, especially at night. Didn't sleep soundly at all due to noise at 1am from teenager, the games room area and giant tv.. Also front staff didn't help to quiet things down. I understand partying, but either this is a family friendly hotel or it's for party goers. The two can't go together. The showers are built for tiny people. Had to contort my body to wash my hair...
