"Nice hotel, very friendly staff, great amenities"
The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating, everyone at the resort spoke English, the restaurant food was very good and they offer a wide variety of restaurants on the premises (full breakfast menu, sandwiches, pizza, steak). Extremely nice spa and gym that has enough equipment to do cardio and get in a good workout. The pool area was great with lots of room, chairs and towels. The beach area was nice, the beaches in this area have the black sand that is not as soft as some of the beaches further south.
If you are renting a car, make sure that you have turn by turn directions from the airport, all of the roads are very poorly marked (no signage whatsoever), and it is difficult to get directions from the locals, it is also difficult to find someone that spoke English outside of the resorts. I would recommend some kind of GPS, you don't get consistent signal on your cell phone while driving. It is approx. 1.5 hours from the airport, if you take the correct route. I can't emphasize this point enough.
The hotel is comfortable, clean and affordable. The food in the restaurant is not to be missed, and although it is in the middle of Jaco night life, the room is quiet and restful every night by 10pm. I'd stay there again and recommend it to all!
"It was a nice and safe place for a family to stay."
There was lots of space in the court yard to walk and not feel that you were in some other persons space. Other hotels were gated front and back with small green space. The pools were clean well maintained. Short walk to ocean and surfing. Short walk to town and shopping. We plan to back to Morgans Cove.
"Thank you to Hotel Pumilio for an enjoyable visit!"
Stayed for 7 days at Hotel Pumilio and enjoyed every bit of our experience. The hotel staff was possibly the most accommodating I've ever experienced and made sure our stay was comfortable and our needs were met. Milton, Juan Diego and Adrian were all very helpful and responsive to requests. Our room was very comfortable and clean and was serviced promptly by the cleaning staff each day. The beds are a bit firmer than we expected, but nothing unreasonable. The pool area is beautiful and the grounds are well kept. We used the free daily cab ride to/from the hotel to Jaco Beach and scheduled a variety of activities through the hotel staff - all of this was very easy and accomplished in a timely manner. There are certainly more expensive establishments that could stand to learn a lot about hospitality from the Hotel Pumilio staff.
My husband and I have stayed here a few times. We love it. The staff has been there for years and are extremely friendly. The free breakfast options are delicious and filling. We will definitely be returning many more times.
