I've been here to hotel nine 3 times, now. This time, we rented out the whole place. I wasn't the one in charge of setting it up, but speaking w/ our group leader...everything was smooth. We had a concierge at our beck and call. Rooms were great and clean. Beach is a about 20 feet away!

Why stay anywhere else? Really. Hotel Nine had everything and the location, wow. Right there, so close to the ocean, I couldn't believe it. I saw the pics, but when we pulled up in the van, it was hard to believe how close it was. All of my friends had such a blast. There was nothing NOT to love. Staff...

I wouldn't change a thing. (Oh,) The bar and game room air-conditioning wasn't the best, always a little to warm. But with that said, I was totally impressed with everything about the place. Hotel Nine will be mentioned a lot in my conversations for a long time.

The staff was amazing! Our rooms were always clean and everyone always had a smile on their face. This property was hands down the most beautiful, amazing property in Jaco. The location is stunning and we all felt very safe the entire week. Booking process was extremely easy. Can't thank Jack and the staff enough for my family's memorable stay...

Beautiful hotel right in front of the beach. CLEAN, beautiful pool, friendly people who met all our needs even down to getting taxis big enough to carry all our family. We had 22 family members with groups going all different ways, and they were there to offer suggestions, arrange transportation, and book tours for us. Wonderful spot for a large...

Such a relaxing stay at Hotel Nine. The setup there was much different than other hotels I walked by. The pool is literally right in the middle of the hotel and just steps away from the beach. You're right there on the ocean. The view when you step outside the room, or even from the room, is water. You can...

We stayed here for a wedding and rented the hotel out. The staff wS beyond helpful, the food was great, the room was impeccably cleaned, the beach was beautiful and it was a short walk to town. We loved it! I'm not sure if I would stay at such a small hotel if it weren't rented out to our group...

“ The only thing that would have been better would be to include the gratituity in the overall cost to ensure the staff received their tip from all who attended our event. Also, keeping the kitchen bar stocked 24 hours a day would have been awesome for those of us dying of thirst in the middle of the night. It was stocked with beer and champagne but more water and juices would have been great to have at that time. ”
