If you adore LOUD and TERRIBLE music non-stop, this is the place for you!

The DJ by the pool, plus the bar music, means this is a club disguised as a hotel. The buffet is pretty solid though! And it's right on the beach. So, yeah, if you love techno music and WHO LET THE DOGS OUT blaring into your ear bones for the entire day, you'll love this place.
Good location, all inclusive, daily entertainment

Location is right on the beach. All inclusive food and drinks. Drinks were OK. Rooms were OK - could use an upgrade. Pool was big and view from the dining room was really nice. There was entertainment everyday. Great for family with young kids.
Basic all-inclusive not really worth the price

After having read the reviews here, I didn’t come with high expectations, and I suppose that, in the end, my expectations were about right. The receptionist who checked me in at 2:20 pm wanted me to wait 40 minutes in the bar before I could get into my room, as official check-in time is 3 pm. Oh my. He was friendly, but the language barrier between a bad English speaker and a bad Spanish speaker was just too high – most my questions were left unanswered and the answers I got, eg. about mealtimes, were incorrect. Moreover, all receptionists had to confirm mostly everything with someone sitting in the back office. The whole arrangement didn’t feel professional. Having said that, I am grateful for being granted a late check-out at 1:30 pm at no extra charge (although clearly the message didn’t go through very well, as I received both a phone call and a knock on the door after noon and had to defend myself not to be kicked out of the room…). The room was very basic, even spartan, but clean. Think of it as a two-star hotelroom, furnished with basic wooden furniture. It came with two beds (without blankets, although this might have been a mistake since, on my first night, they knocked on the door and brought me a blanket without me asking), a desk, a safe and efficient&quiet A/C. No amenities, not even water bottles in the room (although unlimited water bottles were available at the bars at no charge). Wifi was free and mostly alright, but not good enough to watch videos, and sometimes the connection was a bit spotty. The bathroom was equally spartan and came with a wall-mounted shower with so-so water pressure and bad temperature control. Soap and shampoo came in wall-mounted non-tamper-proof containers, which I don’t find hygienic. No glasses in the bathroom, so I had to bring a coffee mug from the restaurant to have somewehere to put my toothbrush. I asked for a quiet room, but my room, facing the pool, was anything but quiet. Noise insulation is non-existent and my neighbours never seemed to sleep, be it 1 am, 4 am, 7 am, someone was always moving furniture, shouting, taking a shower or into some more intimate doings, all the sounds of which could be heard as if the people had been right next to me in bed! Bring your ear plugs and try to ignore the booming music blaring from outside. The door to the room wouldn’t open easily, and one of the maids saw me struggle with the lock and learnt me a trick how to open it – thank you! However, I wish the door would have opened without tricks. All meals were served buffet-style in the hotel restaurant. Due to covid, you needed to prebook a timeslot, which was inconvenient because it meant you had to plan your holiday minute by minute. Timeslots were every 45 minutes, and breakfast hours were 6:30–9:30 (last time slot), lunch 12:15–14:30, dinner 18:15–20:30. While I didn’t like the prebooking system, I have to admit that the restaurant never got too crowded and there were no long lines to help yourself from the buffet. The only excetpion was the omelette line at breakfast, which was always too long as there was only one person working, capable of making at most two omelettes at a time, when there would have been 4- or 5-fold demand. The food was simple local fare, with two or three hot mains (think chicken/beef/pork/fish), lots of Latin American sides, some basic salad items as well as a handful of mini-sized dessert options. You won’t go hungry, but don’t expect any culinary highlights, either. Don’t worry, it’s not bad. But it’s also nothing to write home about. They had planned a ”gala dinner” on New Year’s Eve, out in the open. Guess what? You’re in the rainforest. And in the rainforest, it rains. Also on New Year’s Eve. I’m amazed it came as a surprise to the management, who hadn’t prepared any canopies or tents or anything. They had to move everything last minute, which delayed the dinner by some 1.5 hours. In the end, I just had dinner in the hotel restaurant on New Year’s, and it didn’t really differ in any way from the usual dinner, apart from the live music. Somehow you would expect better planning. The swimming pool hours were 8 am–8pm, and even if the hotel felt fully booked, the pool was never too crowded. The water was pleasantly warm. In December 2021, there was no need to prebook the pool anymore. The hotel is definitely not worth the price they are charging, but if you get a good price and are happy with a 2.5 star resort, three at the absolute most, you’ll get by. The location is good, right at the beach and on the main road, with a short walk from central Jacó if you want to go shopping or have an evening out.
This is a Hostel at best!!!!

This property is more like a hostel. The rooms are terrible. Old decor no refrigerator or microwave or water in the room. The bed is very uncomfortable. There is no elevator and it is a 3 story hotel on the side with no elevator. Bar and restaurant are not open all the time. Not all inclusive. Bar opens at 10am and no water until 10AM? Wow!!
A Family Resort
Reviewed 29 december, 2021
It was a clean resort with good food. It was a beach resort for families with very loud music. Room was very basic. It is right on the ocean and the beach was not too good for swimming because of the rip tides. Very well secure, in the town of Jaco, the Internet not good.
