Good Location, Hotel needs work!Posted Mar 16, 2015
Cons: several things related to building, exterior, smell in the lobby, wall cleanness,
Location: Jaco is a great place to stay, very active, can get a bit though at night but there is a lot to do
Great Location in Jaco, Hotel rates are not cheap, the building needs work, there is a dirty smell in the lobby, food is good but overpriced to be honest.

Total dump, go somewhere elsePosted Jan 17, 2015 on Hotels.com
This place is a complete dump and the reception desk is terrible. the bathroom window was missing 3 panels, door to the veranda didn't seal, very dated, mattress was caved in down the middle, extremely small rooms, wifi only worked outside. would not recommend this place at all. Area itself is not the best, but suitable for surfer type crowds bc the waves were good.

Nice location, boring rooms.Posted Jan 12, 2015 on Hotels.com
Very basic and old hotel rooms. Only beds and shower, tv, air-condition and safety box. Old beds, noisy rooms. Very "old school". Best thing in this hotel was the beach right in front of the hotel. Breakfast was very costarican - rice with beans, sausage, some watermelon. Pool area was full of kids all the time (even after sun went down). People in the service deck were bad in english - they didn't explain anything about their hotel and it's facilities. We tried to ask something, and the answer was always very short.

Great location, and that's about it.Posted Jan 5, 2015 on Hotels.com
We stayed at Balcon del Mar for one night. Parking was a nightmare as cars had to be shuffled upon our arrival and departure. The staff was not the most helpful as they didn't speak much English. It took us hours and multiple requests to get towels in our room (there were none when we checked in). The location is unbeatable.

Great family hotelPosted Dec 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
Our stay was great, I recommend this hotel for families. The pool is shallow enough for kids. Parking is secure. Beachfront hotel. Rooms are comfortable. Neighborhood is secure with a police station right next to the hotel. Food at the hotel is excellent!

This is an older motel but well kept and right on the ocean. It had a great pool and the free breakfast was outstanding. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place on the beach or anyone with children. There is police substation next door to the motel.

This place is very old..Posted Apr 27, 2013
Pros: Staff and security
Cons: Shower and beds
Location: It's located right there by the beach.
The hotel is very old and water pressure was very low and there was no hot water... I would look for another hotel if you are willing to stay in jaco.. Staff are great and friendly and security is very good but that's about it.
