Best hotel in Jaco?
Posted Apr 2, 2017
We stayed for 11 nights at the Pumilio Hotel - we decided to do this to avoid wasting valuable holiday days moving around different parts of the country and delighted with our decision! The staff make you so welcome and the rooms are wonderfully comfortable, including the beds. The outside kitchen is a great idea, and was complete even including washing up liquid! The location of the hotel is quite close to Jaco but secluded so you will see lots of wildlife. During our stay, we saw toucans, white faced monkeys, squirrels, scarlet macaws (some way off though) and many iguanas and the fascinating basilisk lizards (or Jesus Christ lizard). Although there is no restaurant, this is not a major problem as the staff have a room service, providing meals from local restaurants for a very fair cost. We loved our time at Pumilio and hope to go back some time in the future.

Hello! It has a pleasure to meet you and have you leaping into happiness at Pumilio for 11 nights, very smart decision to explore Costa Rica been part of Pumilio´s family and take advantage of our strategically locating to explore Costa Rica like being pamper at home surrounded by nature, see the toucans, macaws and lots of birds flying naturally and the lizards walking around. Close enough to lots of activities, restaurants and things Jaco or Herradura Beaches offer without loosing time changing hotels.
Thank you for your kindly comments, rating and share some photos! All our guests are always more than welcome in our Boutique hotel. We work hard to give the importance that our guests deserve, especially knowing that they are sharing with us their vacation time.
The rooms were planned to be spacious and bright with the kitchen outside so our guests can keep contact with nature and avoid the food smell inside the room. We ended up remodeling the entire hotel last year!
We chose the best restaurants in the area and have their menus and bring what our guest chooses and serve it where they prefer, dining room, terrace, balcony suite or even at the pool deck.
For breakfast, we decided not to have schedule, guests that are going to tours frequently needs it before 7 a.m. and other want to sleep until late, we change daily because people love long stays. We added “tamales” typical dish for Christmas in Costa Rica, now we serve them at breakfast every day so our guest can try them. At Pumilio every day is a Holiday!
If you ever forget, or lose your happy all you have to do is come back to Pumilio. We know how to find the happy in you. Hope to have you back soon. Best regards!
