Best Western Jaco Beach
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Location: Beachfront, 2 hours from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose.
Clean.. Basic rooms, nothing fancy. Pool and food were very good, as was the open bar. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beach was nice. Town was kind of shabby. Went on a ATV tour of the rain forests - best part of the trip.
Good service. Lunch & supper had enough variety of meats & vegetable. Breakfast NOT diabetic friendly, lots of sweet breads, jams (no peanut butter no tortilla (flat breads) no plain yogurt. Location is close to public beach, great for walks & sunsets, sand very coarse, ocean tides are strong, good for surfers.
This was our 50th anniversary, so we wanted it to be extra-special. We picked BW Jaco Beach for a couple of reasons: my wife and I wanted a beach vacation, and she is disabled so we needed wheelchair friendly. This location filled the bill. There are so many positives I don't know where to begin.Everything on the grounds was accessible for my wife. There were ramps to the lobby bar, ocean front restaurant bar, pool, and main restaurant. We stayed in an accessible room. There were grab bars around the toilet and a roll-in shower.The pool was a lot of fun. It was clean, and had plenty of seating around it. Since it is circular, there is always a sunny area and a shady area for when you aren't in the water. There are a couple of families of iguanas to keep you entertained when not in the water.The food was tasty. Not gourmet, but well prepared and a good choice. I had the spaghetti with garlic sauce every day - yummy.But the best part by far was the staff. they were extremely friendly and competent and were eager to help any way they could. My wife's family are all passed away, and we were sad about celebrating our 50th alone. Instead, BW went out of their way to treat us like family: Ana (maid) decorated our room, management sent a flower arrangement to our room, a special table was prepared for us for lunch, and a bottle of champagne appeared at our dinner table. Overall, we felt we were surrounded by brothers and sisters and it became a special day.I'd like to say again every member of the staff treated us like long time friends. William, Jairon, Kenneth, Octovio, Laura, Ana, and the others were kind; they greeted us every time they saw us.I consider the experience well worth the cost, would recommend it to anybody considering a Central America vacation, and will probably stay there again.The part is for other disabled travelers, and should not be considered criticism of the BW Jaco Beach. We had some concerns/suggestions we experienced and passed along to a manager. The room had two beds, which meant there was no way to get a wheelchair to the side of the bed - just not enough room to navigate. The closet did not have a second bar low enough for the wheelchair person to hang up clothes. The roll-in shower does not have a bench for the transfer to (when I requested a chair, Ana had one immediately, so this wasn't a concern). The toilet is too close to the wall, making it hard to use the handrail effectively, and too low for a wheelchair person. bottom line is that a wheelchair person will need an assistant to help.
We stayed for one night and that was enough. The rooms are tiny and the bed was hard as well as the pillows. The a/c did work well but it was an additional charge. You would think a/c would be included in the "all-inclusive". The best thing about this hotel is the view! The sunset was breathtaking and the waves crashing on the beach were so beautiful to watch. The bartenders made really good drinks and were really pleasant. The food was ok but the selection could definitely be improved. Ice would be nice in the water too. It was ok overall.
