Best tell there is to evaluate a hotel is repeat business. Scroll through the reviews and you'll see a lot of, "can't wait to come back", "stayed for a month", "on my return trip...", "stayed here last year", etc. Could pretty much drop the mic right there and get back to planning my next return trip, but you of course...

Don't believe management response to my husband's review stating NO HOT WATER. There was none, we never complained, we never asked for a refund or reductions to our bill, which was prepaid by the way. And the morning we departed for the airport many staff members were there to wish us well, hardly the appearance of dissatisfied customers. This was...

This was not my first stay here, but probably the last. We too, had NO hot water in our room. I asked one of the ladies in the registration area of this and we were told that we dont need hot water here. Unacceptable response. We did however enjoy the lounge restaurant area as the food was good and adequate,...

Well I'm not Trump, I'm Claudia the Costa Rican manager of Clarita's, so I will just present the facts and let you the readers draw your own conclusions. On the last day of a 4 night stay this...

I enjoy staying at this hotel because it is on the beach , close to downtown and has a restaurant with good food and a friendly staff. There is a pool in case you want to cool off without going in the ocean. In addition the sunsets are beautiful.

Just returned from Clarita's. It sits right on the beach. Beautiful view and staff is very friendly. Bar and food was good. Motel itself is very basic. No extras. No hot water was a shock to us. Make sure you get a room with a/c. Bring your own shampoo, hair dryer, etc. wifi was only at the bar area.

Hola. Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. You are correct that we do not supply hair dryers. However I must correct two inaccuracies. Every room at Clarita's has hot water 24/7. There is wifi on our patios and balcony in front of each room, at the pool and in the Restaurant/Bar. Thanks...

Motel is very basic, no glasses, no clock, no extras. It is VERY clean a pleasant place to stay. The maids and security people are very good and friendly.

Hola: First, thank you for staying with us. As clearly stated on our menu, coffee is 500 colones or $1.00 per cup and according to our records that is what you were charged each morning. I apologize if 1/2 your pizza was burnt. Next time you stop by the pizza is on me. However, neither you nor any other customer...

Good little hotel with average accommodations. Located right on the beach, at night you can hear the waves in your room. Must get a room with air conditioner. Jaco is really hot. The restaurant on the other hand has excellent food and a very friendly staff. Must try.

We found this place just looking for a quick lunch on a road trip south. Best right turn we ever made. 24 hours later we left with promises to return.
