To be clear - there are two morgans cove locations. The 'resort and casino' is the one you want to stay at. It's 20$ more a night and it is worth it trust me. We made the mistake of booking the other location which is not as nice - and the staff were very accommodating when we asked to move...

Fabulous location - right on the beach! The hotel consists of cabins with airconditioning and ensuite facilities. The staff are wonderful, the food is superb and the whole resort is kept clean and tidy. Ofcourse there is wild life at every turn and the sunsets could never be forgotten. I was there in March and had sun all the time.

Morgan's Cove has 80 rooms - so it fitted us (a group of 76) perfectly having a reunion and a blast for an extra long week-end. We could not have chosen a better place for location, friendly service and enjoyment. The food was good too; a pleasant breakfast buffet, outstanding fish soup and lobster bisque, fine pastas and fish, although...

Stayed in Morgans Cove with a friend in April and really enjoyed our stay. The General Manager Joey was excellent - I must say it's the most friendly and attentive service that I've had at a hotel, even better than 5stars that I've stayed at. For the price, it's good value. Rooms are clean and hotel grounds are well kept,...

We found Morgan's Cove to be a wonderful place to stay. The owner, Jim and the staff were all warm and friendly. The resort and grounds are beautiful and so very relaxing, just what we were looking for. We enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay for an extra couple of nights rather than travel somewhere else in...

I had the pleasure of visiting Costa Rica on a work junket recenty, and whilst many on my crew were disapppointed, I enjoyed my experience. Overall, Costa Rica and the general feel, beaches, restaurants, main streets and design reminded me so much of Indonesia, it was uncanny. I'm a surfer tragic and I can see the appeal of both places....

We stayed at Jaco two nights, the first one at Morgan's Cove. It's not that expensive, but then it is also fairly obvious that this is not one of the better resorts. Everything looks just a little bit dated, the front desk staff a little bit exhausted, ants all over the cantaloupe at breakfast. It would be okay if you're...

Thank you for the response. Living in the tropics is a constant struggle with the ants. If they smell something sweet they are quick to get it. We will be more due diligent with this in our breakfast buffet and thank you for pointing it out to us. We are a 3 star hotel and offering the best deals in...

We had a great second storey room by the main pool clean and the wildlife right is outside your door. The hotel is in the process of being updated but I hope it does not lose it's charm. It is a unique hotel with great staff the owner is never far away

This is a small quiet resort. The staff were excellent and the service was great. We were 4 guys traveling together, and on arrival we only had 2 beds, the front desk changed our room on the spot and accommodated us without question. They have recently hired a new chef (Jeff), and he ensures the food quality is amazing. There...
