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.

Economical and relaxing

The best thing about it that I liked is that you can buy your all inclusive package dayly, so you don't waste your money while sightseeing and traveling. Don't book an airport transfer from different agencies, there's a direct bus just for $5!

Birthday celebration

We just got back from Costa Rica and all in all it was a nice resort. For the price you get a lot and the staff is tremendous and truly made the whole 5 days wonderful. The buffet style options were tasty but not out of the ordinary. The whole resort is very well up kept and clean but could use a little updating and upgrading. Our room was basic but that is what we expected. Good choices for liquor and lots of tasty fruity drinks. It is maybe a 15 walk downtown which goes fairly quick and lots of shops, bodegas and cafes. Now for the negative and one HUGE issue is the tile that encompasses the entire resort. We had 8 of the 10 folks with us slip and fall. This is really serious and can ruin an entire trip. I know that the resort will read this but SOMETHING MUST BE DONE ABOUT IT. 15 bruises, 2 fractured ribs and countless scraps. Unfortunately this will be the main reason we will not return. Adding simple slip-free strips would be a lot for safety. All it takes is one nasty slip and vacation is over.

A very good All Inclusive for the money!

My wife and I stayed there from 10/13/17 until 10/20/17. The food was nothing fancy (all buffet) but the choices were plenty, and the tropical fruits were always fresh and sweet. At the beachside bar there were hamburgers, and hotdogs as well as nachos. They 'do not' know how to make crispy fries, but neither does the Los Amigos restaurant in town (and Tripadvisor gave them an award for excellence in 2017. One thing lacking at the breakfast buffet was BACON! But for $40.00 per person for the all inclusive what should one expect? The room we stayed in was very comfortable, and the TV has FOX News! The staff throughout the resort was very friendly. Sergio the bartender was great, and so was Frank, and the two younger bartenders. The liqour quality is not that of a five star resort, but for the price of the all inclusive it was good. Jenny stood out as the best breakfast egg maker, and William 'the nacho man'! We travel a great deal, and would stay there again!

The room and resort were very clean. We did find a little crab in our room one night. But I thought that was kind of funny. Friendly staff and beautiful beach. Its ok to walk around the city and leave the resort.

Enjoyable Stay

We are currently in day 4 of a 5 day stay. The staff is very friendly and most speak some English. The food is quite good and varies daily. My wife is gluten free and has no trouble finding dishes to suit her appetite. The beach is not good for swimming as the waves pound the shore. I would call it a surfer's paradise. There are more small children here than we expected. The rooms are clean but noisy at night from the hallway and the room above ours. Good security on the grounds so we felt totally safe. The specialty drink menu is extensive with friendly bartenders. In all, we are enjoying our stay.
