I conducted a dance/yoga retreat at Doce Lunas. Overall the experience was incredible and we made some cherished life memories here. Chris the owner is an angel and helped me during some difficult personal circumstances that arose. I felt very supported and cared for even though I was far from home in a foreign country. The staff is friendly and... More

Customer Service: I am giving three stars is because the staff is genuinely sweet and caring people. I think what the hotel is lacking is management. I booked a hotel for a retreat and I wasn't given a key. The hotel was aware that there would be three people staying and they didn't prepare for this... the first couple of... More

We have done extensive traveling throughout many "third world" countries, and know what to expect when we decide to venture off to a locally owned property, rather than stay at the name brand resort chains. It's a roll of the dice really. This was one of those rare experiences where we can't even think of one aspect of our stay... More

Its simplicity in service will mesmerize you, it's open space and green landscape will embrace you ...with a pool rinsed by a clean water fall that will refresh your very soul. No matter if it rains or sunshine this hotel boutique will provide the most experience traveller with enough confort to make it almost called it home .

I visited this hotel with great expectation after reading a lot of reviews in TripAdvisor, however, the experience was not the one I was waiting for, this is a nice place, the service is very good but there are several aspects that must be improved, specially when you compare this one with other hotels in the same price range.

We stumbled across this hotel and would highly recommend it. It was extremely clean and roomy. The food at its restaurant could not be topped. There was a mild mannered dog which was around but had been taught its manners. The owner had a very nice demeanor and chatted with us for awhile. The hotel grounds were beautiful. You won't...

We had our wedding at Doce Lunas in the beginning of March and were blown away by the experience. Brian Sam is the most amazing owner, host and coordinator any bride could ever hope for.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Jaco. Why would you? This amazing hotel retreat center is a little slice of peace, nature and Zen in an otherwise busy area. It's a little bit on the outside of it all and that's just perfect. The rooms are LARGE the bathroom are LARGE, everything is so tastefully done, the decor, the ambiance. Have... More
