Hotel was fairly easy to find as we were driving ourselves in a rental car. Check in went smoothly and hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and spacious, beds were very comfortable, air conditioning worked well and rooms were as cool as you wanted. Enjoyed the pool area and restaurant food was good. There were activities and areas for younger children but not much for teenagers, other than the pool area with a net for water volleyball.Only thing lacking was a nice beach to swim in and more reasonably priced golfing. There was a beautiful golf course there but no one was golfing it!
Very nice condos. We had a group of 12 and rented 3 of them. There was plenty of space, AC, nice individual patios. fantastic pool, gated community with kind guards and good English. Just a 2 minute walk from the beach and restaurants. There is a grocery store across the road too. Oh, and washer and driers!
La Dolce Vita was exactly what we were expecting: cute, beachy, and comfortable with friendly accommodating staff and an amazing view. We ended up with the best unit in the hotel, and ate our breakfast with an unobstructed view of the beach every morning. Cleaning was thorough, the air conditioner was powerful, and the full kitchen was a great feature. It is the perfect hotel to use as a home base for day trips, or to laze the day away on the beach or in the pool. We had a phenomenal trip and will be back as soon as possible!
Stayed at Poseidon for a surf vacation with a friend of mine. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The staff was really helpful in setting up tours and directing us to other restaurants and shops in town. We ended up eating a lot of meals at the restaurant. Included breakfast is a big plate of fruit and a piece of breakfast loaf bread. They have a daily lunch special for $6. They have a dinner special from a select menu of $35/ 2 people which we found to be one of the best values in Jaco. WiFi works in the rooms. Only like a block in one direction to the beach, and a block in other direction from main drag in Jaco. Would definitely recommend.
The locals will greet you with that phrase: Pura Vida. Translated literally it means "pure life" but the concept gets lost in that literal translation. Pura Vida is a way of life and this little gem of a boutique hotel will show you what that means. Sheyla, our contact at the hotel is really a great hostess. We were greeted with such warmth and friendliness that it calmed our nerves from a difficult drive down from San Jose. And Doña Anita in the morning with her lovely breakfast service really set the tone for our day. This place is magical. We saw more wildlife from the balcony of our room than in all the Eco Tours we booked. We will never forget seeing two large Toucans in flight from our balcony as we sipped coffee and enjoyed the sounds of the rainforest.
