Overview
Expect Best Western affordability and value at this older all-inclusive beachfront hotel located in the laid-back resort town of Jac� Beach. The volcanic dark-sand beach is great for walking and swimming and the hotel is strolling distance from the town's shops, restaurants and nightlife. The friendly, lively atmosphere at this long-time Canadian favourite is ideal for sunseekers looking for a smaller hotel close to activities in town.

Location: Beachfront, 2 hours from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose.

Loud lobby

The hotel is okay. not terrible and not great. The biggest issue is that the open concept lobby is near the rooms, so it is very loud, especially at night. Didn't sleep soundly at all due to noise at 1am from teenager, the games room area and giant tv.. Also front staff didn't help to quiet things down. I understand partying, but either this is a family friendly hotel or it's for party goers. The two can't go together. The showers are built for tiny people. Had to contort my body to wash my hair. The food is okay. The drinks are good. The hotel staff is friendly, but I probably not stay here again. The resident iguanas by the pool are great though.

Nice location for a family vacation!

The property was very clean and the staff was professional and friendly. My one complaint is that the internet was inconsistent. We would have extended our stay it it would have been better. Very good location to get to other actives.

Beautiful Hotel

This was part of a dream vacation for a friend and I. We found the deal from Gate1 travel. This hotel was included in the deal and we couldn't have been happier. We arrived to a smooth, quick check in and overview of the property. The room was a basic room - nothing exciting. We spent some time at the beach bar - amazing! A lot to be said for all inclusive!!! From the bar we saw another part of the hotel where the rooms had balconies - and since we are balcony people I went to ask if we could move rooms. We were escorted to the 4th floor end unit / the one closest to the beach. INCREDIBLE VIEW (room 413). The grounds are beautiful and meticulously kept. Clean, beautiful, up to date. Room 413 was obviously newer than the first room with a much larger bathroom. The bar staff was AWESOME! All were super friendly and very attentive - I don't think my glass was empty but a minute or 2 before someone was checking on me. The food was good - not 5 star but good. A large variety so you could always find something you liked. Fresh fish, chicken, pork or beef for dinner. If you like to wander out a bit there are dozens of places to eat within a 5 minute cab ride. I can't say enough good things about this place and commend them for being a wonderful, relaxing place to call home during vacation. It does seem to get a bit busier on the weekends but nothing crazy. Everyone was there to have a good time and mission accomplished. If you are at all contemplating this place - book it - you absolutely will not be sorry. Pura Vida!!!

I live in Costa Rica and have stayed at different all inclusive hotels over the years. I found this one to have a wonderful buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very good waffles. The selection of vegetables was great and well prepared. Salad bar was always fresh. Restaurant and buffet were very clean and plenty of staff. We arrived at 7pm and had no problem with checking in. Our room was on the ground floor, definitely no frills but it has the basics for a comfortable stay.

Great All-inclusive Hotel

The drive to jaco is long, but definitely worth it. This hotel is situated on some prime beach front property. Staff are very professional and friendly and bilingual(Spanish and English). Breakfast,lunch and dinner was excellent. Something new and different almost daily and buffet style. Plenty of activities for you to choose from. Pool table, ping pong table, pool fitness sessions, decent conference facilities and the grounds were always clean.. don't be surprised if you see a few iguanas on the property, but they are harmless.
