This was one of many stops on our recent honeymoon. The hotel was okay (the room was small and the bathroom needed updating), but the location was great. We really didn't spend much time in the room so it wasn't that big of an issue for us. The locals were really friendly. My husband quickly became friends with a couple...

Stayed 3 nights here in nov 2012, paid $113 per nt for 3rd floor room with king bed, room was comfortable, great little deck in room for smoking and sunsets, small but nice pool area, close to everything but quiet enough to get rest. Well secured and safe, you can hear the waves/ocean at night, restaurant was very good. excellent,...

I really enjoyed this hotel. It's located right by the beach and really close to the main strip. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. My room had a balcony facing the pacific and the a/c and hot water worked well. I had a little trouble with the wi-fi in my room, but in the pool/restaurant/bar area, the connection was good....

We stayed here during an educational tour with our daughters school. We did not choose the hotel but we were pleasantly surprised. After a long trip of very poor lodgings this hotel came as a treat. At this point our standards had been lowered in terms of what to expect at each new location but we were happy and comfortable...

Pros: On the beach, good pool area with a nice bar and restaurant area, an almond tree nearby that had the most macaws I have ever seen in one place, a short walk to the downtown shops and restaurants, a nice balcony, a comfortable bed, and working A/C. Cons: no elevator, rip tides in this section of the beach, and...

Myself along with seven of my close friends stayed at this hotel for four nights. The hotel was across the street from the beach. Parking was easy due to a employee stationed outside of the hotel waiting to assist guests. The staff definitely made this hotel. Each employee was professional, yet friendly, and extremely helpfull. The hotel was clean but,...

This hotel is in the heart of Jaco, one of the most active beach towns in the country. It is located on the Pacific side, around 90 minutes from San Jose the capital via the new Caldera “highway“. This is a small hotel. It is a building in the shape of a horseshoe, it has 4 or 5 floors. The...

The Hotel Balcon del Mar is located right next to a police station in Jaco, a very dicey town on the Pacific coast. While the ocean views are lovely, crime is ever-present. Drug dealers sell on the street with impunity and there are plenty of prostitutes cruising near the hotel. My advice is to stay out of Jaco altogether. It's...
