10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything But the shade could cover the bedroom windows more To much Morning sun light
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Room was awesome, Great Staff very helpfull and very attentive , nice pool's and comune area, free coffee a.m plus nice kitchen, Center location a block from the beach as well, very clean,
Cons: Wifi need's improvement.
7.5 Good
Pros: This place is very central and you can reach everything by foot. The beach and the city center are only minutes away. The room was looking up to date, clean and spacious. There is parking just in front of your apartment so you don't have to walk far away to get to your car.
Cons: The internet connection was horrible and it was not possible to work with it. The connection kept breaking up and speed was horribly slow. I wouldn't say that there is "WIFI available". We had the problem with 5 different devices during our 20 hours stay. The staff was not very friendly and mindful. We arrived after a long day, being sweaty and tired and the first thing they did was to show us the pool and tell us that you get coffee for free in the common rooms. We just wanted to get to our room and have a shower. Instead, the staff walked in the opposite direction of our room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was great and the bed very comfortable I loved watching birds from garden and pretty paintings
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is a bit older, but there are upgraded rooms, and the Coordinator Lester upgraded us to a big suite with pool view since my mom bday, but that was older and when I let him know the next day when a remodeled room became avail, turns out was newest and pretty view, he put us there. They are amazing and accomodating. Best customer service ever! Today we check out, but our stay has been incredible.
Cons: There is not much! I guess a shared lil kitchen. I like to have cofee n microwave in my room. It does have the lil fridge. Oh, n bring an iron if necc, but who needs it! Humidity will knock wrinkles away in this season I've come...Oct 2019
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Everything, Great Staff attended to all my needs as I spent 8 day's there and 14 overall in the last month, will b back soon.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The rooms are well decorated, the bed is comfortable and everything is really clean. The pool area is nice and green. There is coffee for free in the morning, thanks for that ! The staff was super friendly expect of one person.
Cons: First of all, there were works on the roof being done in the time we were there, the workers of course started to work not later than 8:00 in the morning, it was so loud in our room that we had to leave. This is something which definitely is not ok, if you pay 50$ for your room. On that price you’d expect that you can actually sleep in, as everyone wants on their holiday... the other thing that really showed us, how money driven this hotel is, is following: we wanted to prolong our stay for one night( in the first morning there weren’t any works done on the roof, if we knew we would have checked out after the first night!) so we asked the receptionist. He said it would be ok but he gave us a higher price that what we had paid the first night. Only after discussing with him, he gave us the first night price. He said the price would be higher on that night but it would be ok for us to Pay less, which of course is nice of him! But we then checked the prices on booking and then still were the same and not higher how he said. It’s just so frustrating that people here think that they can treat tourists like they are stupid just to get as much money out of them as possible. I’d never stay here a second time, a Pitty because the hotel is actually nice :-(
7.0 Good
Pros: the staff and cleaners were very good, great location for Jaco.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Love the pool and the kitchen
Cons: Could be more variety for breakfast. Something sweet as an alternative to scrambled eggs. Can only Eat so many eggs and rice and beans. Find myself going to the bakery around the corner which has great pastry and fresh bread .Bread could be better. Capachino would be great as well. Given that it is a place where people were pretty healthy come to experience Costa Rica it might also be good to add in things like yogurt and some grains . I might also suggest some work be done on the bikes I had to rent one in town because the ones they are Not in the best of shape
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is very convenient 10 min. walk to main street. Breakfast was OK but I wish they would have yogurt and local cheese for breakfast
9.1 Excellent
Pros: The staff was great and friendly! The free breakfast was good and having a pool was great. Having a nice air conditioning room was great in miserably hot Jaco and the room and bathroom was nice and clean. The rooms also have a small kitchen which was a nice touch. The frig was small so prob doesn't hold much but it was perfect for us since we only had drinks in there. It's not a 5 star resort or anything but if you are on a budget but still want to stay at a decent hotel then this place is perfect! We stayed one night in a miserable hot hostel and this place was a god send at a great price.
Cons: Pool could have been a little colder and the bed could have been a little more comfortable.

The room and bathroom facilities were fabulous. The property felt very secluded and relaxing. You could walk to the main drag where the restaurants and beach was located. Good breakfast.

Cons: The bed was not completely comfortable.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: On the beach.
7.9 Good
Pros: Hotel is right on the ocean and close to the downtown area. Everything is walkable, but if you ask the locals about their favorite seafood place, you'll have to drive to them, as they're not downtown. Room air-conditioner worked perfectly. Staff was friendly/nice. Note: Hotel is down an alley. It is well lit, but Jaco is a very touristy place. Make sure you use common sense and stay aware. I never felt in danger here, so just saying this as a reminder.
Cons: Bathrooms could use updating, but they/the whole place was still clean. The bathroom hot water didn't work either, but the hotel is right on the ocean... So... Who needs hot water? Not us!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Loved that it was right on the beach, just a few steps away. I also liked that there were pools so at night when the beach closed or got dark I could go to the pool. I liked the room overall and especially the balcony with the view. I noticed not all rooms had it due to the design of building so maybe I got lucky on the 2nd floor. The employees were nice and responsive, thanks for your kindness and help. Also the room was in a pretty quiet area away from the noise of the street, I could hear the ocean waves throughout the day and night. I felt safe, even at night, they had someone at the front until at least 10pm.
Cons: (NOTE) these aren't really "☹" but moreso answers to the question "what didn't you like?" Ants or bugs but only a few in the room, near the counter above the fridge (probably due to the closed empty bottle of mojito I placed there) and also near the bathroom sink (no food or drink items). I wish there was the option for more meat at breakfast, they only give you 2 pieces of bacon (there weren't any other meat options). It would've been nice to get a courtesy wakeup call, it wasn't an option as there were no phones in the room. I missed breakfast the 1st day.

Pros: The beds uncomfortable. They sound like a broken wood. When you lay. If you want a capuchino you have to pay is not ALL INCLUSIVE all hotels around the world I visited that states all inclusive offer s good cappuccino but this “all inclusive “ does nota you have to pay for it or pay a “vip” bracelet for 55 bucks. The staff was good but if you Ask for a food or drink that was on the VIP bracelet they change mood.

Cons: The bathroom in my room wasn’t very clean.
5.4 Okay

Cons: Infrastructure a bit basic. Client service was not the best. There were only 10 guests and they would not let us enter the room earlier without paying a fee. Bar at the swimming pool was not open. Cochroach and mosquitos in the room.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location right on the beach, how ever the sand is a little rocky, but walk a hundred yards to the south and that will solve the problem, the food is great, the food and beverages prices are the best in Jaco, no kidding you wont find anything cheaper, great value for your money, the sunsets are insane in this area. Also if you get the meal plan which includes 3 meals a day will also include all drinks, this info is not disclosed by booking.com for some reason. The staff is great, great for couples or families, the pool areas are nice too.
Cons: The rooms need to be updated. The bar should open earlier, not at 1100am. The beach volleyball court is unattended and this looks bad.
6.3 Good
Pros: The breakfast was ok. I had dinner at the restaurant, the Red Snapper was AMAZINGGGG!!! They have lovely pools. It's not too far from downtown, a $3 USD cab ride and less with Uber. The public bus from San Jose stops by the hotel. The staff at the bar were friendly.
Cons: From the advertised "beach front view" isn't really a beachfront view.....it's just closer to the beach, I was highly disappointed. My room was a lil older, there was a roach in the bathroom on our last night here. I was told by another hotel guest that they were in a renovated room. This was the most expensive hotel I stayed in and was my least favourite hotel that I stayed in while in Costa Rica. I don't think it was worth the money.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The bar and restaurant staff were excellent, and spoke good English.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is right on the beach and has 2 awesome pools. The grounds are impeccably kept with beautiful tropical flowers growing everywhere. The drinks were generously poured and affordable. Beach Break Resort exceeded our expectations.
6.0 Good
Cons: Un lugar inseguro. Incluyen la caja fuerte pero la llave hay que pagarla. En el parqueo hay rótulos que dicen: deje su vehículo bajo su propio riesgo. El desayuno no es variado y todos los días fue el mismo
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing at all. Its close to the beach and thats the only thing going for this place.
Cons: The facility is dirty, rooms are gross and not well kept, the bedsheets were so uncomfortable, the patio at the back cannot even be kept open because its so dirty and filthy. The breakfast is very average and the smoothies we ordered were watery. A waste of money.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable and safe.
Cons: I don't know how old this property is but there are signs of deterioration and disrepair. Many of the paver's in the parking lot are coming up or have sunken and need to be redone. The steel risers supporting the steps going up to the second floor are rusted all the way through in places. In my room the a/c wasn't cooling and the hot water in the shower wasn't hot and was only a trickle. To the resort's credit though, when informed they very promptly took care of the room problems.

Pros: Everything was great!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location in front of the beach, perfect for traveling With small children and beautiful views from outside the room
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is awesome. I loved the location and that it is right on the beach. At first I was not happy that the room did not have an ocean view, but that did not matter. All you have to do is open the front door and the tiki bar and pool are beachfront.
Cons: I wish there was a little refrigerator in the room to have cream for coffee in the morning. The restaurant does not open until 7 a.m. and we wake up at 5 a.m. and like coffee right off the bat, however it would not prevent me from returning to this location the next time we are in Costa Rica.
10.0 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: I liked the facilities in general, the pool, the restaurant areas and the room. The service in the restaurant was very good. I enjoyed the live music, at the sunset hour, the room was confortable and clean.
Cons: My experience doing the check in was not good. The desk clerck made a photocopy of my credit card, so I was very dissapointed on that. After discussed it with her, she gave me back the document. I think that this behaivour has to change to avoid potential frauds.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Owners and staff OVER accommodating - took care of every need to help with my father who was in a walker.
Cons: I sent a request on booking.com for a first floor room since we cannot do steps with my 95 year old father. Thank goodness there was a room available since they did not read the request or respond. To be fair, we made the reservation the morning we were arriving, but it could have been a problem if they did not have a first floor room available and they were so nice, I would not want to be the problem maker!
5.4 Okay
Pros: Food was okay, service was bad and the people offer a budget beach experience.
