Pumilio Mountain and Ocean Hotel is tucked into the hills just outside of Jaco! Situated a long a stream among lots of lush greenery the hotel faces all the greenery that Costa Rica is known for. We arrived the last week of September which is the green(rainy) season and although it did rain it never rained on any of the outdoor activities we planned for the week. Mostly in the afternoon and evenings. The included full breakfast was the best of both worlds as there was authentic breakfast and the normal eggs, omelettes and waffles and toast! Fruit, cereal, meat and tamales were also choices! The rooms are super spacious and come with bathrobes and lots of pillows. The only downside was the bed was pretty hard as I am used to a softer mattress. We found that our fridge wasn't working correctly and they sent someone to replace it immediately! We ordered dinner each night from the menus supplied as we were exhausted from all our outdoor activities. The pool was pretty warm and refreshing! I would definitely recommend this hotel and cannot wait to return another time! Everyone at the hotel is super nice and very helpful. We scheduled our trip to Manuel Antonio National Park thru the hotel and it was a fantastic tour! Pura Vida!

Hello! Thanks for your kindly rating, comments and for sharing some of your photos! It was a pleasure to meet you and have you leaping into happiness at Pumilio.
We agree our location is perfect to stay surrounded by nature, with lush vegetation, birds and lots of peaceful environment! But close enough to lots of activities and things to do in the area. The rainy season in Costa Rica is very nice too, and as you say usually rains in the afternoon or evening, it's hard to have a whole rainy day and all the vegetation is perfectly green!
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. Thanks for mentioned you enjoyed!
Sorry to hear you didn’t know we have memory foam mattress for those that prefer a softer bed, we will make sure to announce this option better.
At your next visit you can ask for a special comfort to make the bed less stiff.
We chose the best restaurants in the area and have there menus and bring what our guest decide and serve it where your prefer, dinning room, terrace, balcony suite or even at the pool deck, we like to hear you enjoy this idea for other meal times.
All of 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.
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!
