Good Beaches !!Posted Nov 11, 2014
Nice place, you will need a vehicle to move around all the facilities to have the whole experience. They should improve the internal transportation. The beach clubs are great, nice pools and a beautiful nature.

Playa BlancaPosted Aug 28, 2014
Pros: The beach was nice when it didn't rain . Only saw the monkeys once during breakfast out of the 6 times I had breakfast..Snapped some pics of a Macaw
Cons: Don't charge visitors for the missed day. Rooms need serious updating. Hot water stopped working and we had to switch rooms Construction disturb sleep
Location: Nothing at all without a rental car it's a 45 min walk to the front gate.
Can't stress enough you need a rental car . The hotel rents golf carts for $45 per day rip off. It's a 15 min drive from the front gate to the lobby. The rooms are 20 years behind the times My bed was stiff as a board. I also arrived a day late due to a missed flight and they would not refund the money total B/S . In Jaco it constantly rains I been to C.R. numerous times and would not go back to Jaco. Everything in the surrounding areas is extremely overpriced . A couples dinner with salad, main course and a glass of wine $90 I didn't travel 6 hours on a plane to pay Manhattan prices. Tamarindo is definitely a better choice with more stable weather and moderately priced items . Atenas seems to have more stable weather and moderately priced items with beautiful views of the country. It's also a lot closer to the airport. Hardly any visitors at this hotel speaks volumes . If it wasn't for my girlfriend keeping me grounded I would have checked out a lot sooner. Would not recommend to friends or family .

Lovely stay but...Posted Aug 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
They had one of the restaurants closed and they only offered us buffet option. We wanted something small like a sandwich and they simply said no and we had to drive into town for dinner.

This is a nice hotel, with decent pools and two nice beaches. There are a lot of bugs so come prepared. The room had no electricity at some point so it was very very hot and humid. The restaurant near the pool has a slow service but the food is good.

Dear Guest, thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the pools and beaches. We do recommend to bring insect repellant when you travel to Costa Rica especially to areas located in the rain forest because during the rainy season you will find a lot of mosquitoes. We hope you will visit us again.

Far from everythingPosted Jun 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
We were there one night and the lights went out for about 3 hours, it was about 6pm, so everybody was in their rooms in complete darkness. Manager didn't even apologize to anyone for the inconvenience. Wouldn't stay there again. I thought it was going to be the best hotel because it was the most expensive one, but it was a waist of money.

For me it doesn't get much better. Having the pacific for swimming and sunsets is a perfect vacation.
