it was the first place we saw and we checked in because we were really tired. after leaving the bags in the room we went to see other hotels in town - to my horror they were all just as bad and a bit more expensive. we even saw a hotel that cost 100$ a night and it was only a little bit better than this one so lower your expectations when coming to Jaco!
about the place itself - the rooms are big, the furnitures are old and ugly and there is no hot water in the shower (even though they say they do in the website) also the pictures in the website are much much more prettier than realiity...
another thing is there is a big window that you can't close entirely and is facing to the pool area (and other common areas) so it feels like the people outside are in your room and it can be late at night or early in the morning when the prepare to go surfing
