This is the best hotel experience I have had in my life! The staff and owner are wonderful, and the location could not be any more amazing. Every morning, I got to wake up five steps from the beach. The rooms are secure and clean, as well as really inviting. The pool, bar and grill, and indoor bar were the...

Upon arriving to hotel 9, I was astounded by all the amenities, and how spectacular the pool was! This was the perfect location for our week long vacation. I had a blast waking up to the pool waterfall, grilling pineapple for lunch poolside, and taking a dip in the ocean at sunset. Would definitively recommend this place for a big...

What an incredible experience from start to end. A group of 20 of us headed to Jaco and had no idea what to expect. I had read reviews of the place, but was still skeptical on how awesome it could really be. The property was actually incredible. Right on the beach, stocked with surfboards, awesome swim up bar, huge pool,...

Such a fun trip! Everything was perfect. Such a beautiful house and area, I would definitely come back and to it all over again. Loved the staff, beaches, town, and house! I had my own room to myself which was great. It had air condition, my own shower and bathroom, with my own fridge, t.v, and sink.

The most amazing stay I have ever had abroad. Jack, the owner, went above and beyond to accommodate our party of 17+. JacoVIP was the service provider and they were beyond helpful as far as making our stay as enjoyable as possible. Concierge came by 2-3 time daily to check in on us, offered to book any trips, and even...

Great place all around. Friendly staff, great service, and prime location with a pool literally steps from the beach. Concierge is there to help with whatever is needed from cleaning up the rooms to helping schedule trips and activities. Could not ask for a better place to vacation.

While it's not normally the case with a lot of rental places, Hotel 9 was even better in person. The facilities were fantastic, HUGE, and absolutely perfect for a large group. The location was ideal and could easily do everything from surfing to walking to great restaurants/shops. I don't normally write reviews but I couldn't possibly recommend this place more.

“ The only thing that would have been better would be to include the gratituity in the overall cost to ensure the staff received their tip from all who attended our event. Also, keeping the kitchen bar stocked 24 hours a day would have been awesome for those of us dying of thirst in the middle of the night. It was stocked with beer and champagne but more water and juices would have been great to have at that time. ”
