After traveling to a number of beautiful lodgings across CR, the Jaco Beach Best Western could not hold a candle to the personalized touch of our previous hotels. With that said, there is nowhere in Jaco Beach I would have rather stayed. Jaco Beach can be very scary with prostitutes, pimps, and drug dealers hanging out beneath dim street lamps with no reservation to solicit American tourists. My group and I would usually grab dinner in town and start making our way back to the resort before dark. The resort bar had great drink specials, music, and I felt a lot safer there. The pool was open late and the beach was patrolled by a security guard which helped to limit the number of men, women, and young children pandering 'homemade' jewelry.
The resort does offer a really great menu, I liked the prices at the snack bar, and while the staff wasn't really taking much notice to you being there, they were helpful when it counted. We booked trips at a location down the main street rather than the Grayline Tour Service at the hotel and ended up saving a lot of money. Jaco Beach is a great central location for Manuel Antonio and Tortuga Island trips, but I agree with other reviews that if you want clean, safe, and quieter beaches, head to the Guanacasta region.
