This was my second visit to Jaco, and this time I stayed at the Balcon Del Mar Hotel which was right on the beach in downtown Jaco. Although the location was good and the staff courteous, I can not say much more for this place. No one spoke very good English, although they were kind and friendly. My room was...

Wow, this place was clean! We had a lovely 3 days in this hotel and truly think we booked the best spot on the beach for the money. Reception was quick and employees spoke English pretty well. They showed me prices in both Colones and US Dollars. Our room was ready and spotless! Linens were new. Our room was on...

I went on this trip with a total of 30+ people. I was impressed at how easy it was for our tour guide to make sure all of us got checked into our rooms. The staff was patient and friendly. Complimentary breakfast was nice, though I'm from the states and I'm used to a certain kind of breakfast, I'm not...

Great hotel located right in front of the beach, we got a room wit a balcony where we could see the the nice pool and the beach. The service and staff were so efficient and nice. It's right in the center of Jaco, so we could walk to different restaurants, stores and walked back from clubs at night without danger....

Good service, clean rooms, nice pool and beautiful ocean view. Chairs on the beach included as well as breakfast. AC was good in the room. Good location to walk to shops and restaurants downtown. Nothing to complain about.

We had to spend a night in Jaco beach after visiting the Osa Peninsula and Manuel Antonio on the way North to Nicoya. It is located on a little side street, away from the noise main road, right on the ocean. Our room had a nice view of the ocean. We enjoy beautiful sunsets. The restaurant specializes in Peruvian cuisine,...

Great beach hotel, special for those interesting in a fun party loving beach community. The restaurant is the best place to be, the food is very good. We can recommend to future visitors and people visiting the area.

We have not been big fans of Jaco beach, especially being from Guanacaste`s more secluded beach area ( Nosara ). However, after visiting the area last week, we must recon it has changed quite a bit, for the good. Although still a surfing and soft party town, Jaco has improved quite a bit, the main Boulevard has become quite lovely,...

Hotel is on the beach, right in the middle of Jaco. Staff is super friendly, food is incredible, Peruvian, Ceviches, Arroz Chaufa, you name it. The hotel is not the most luxurious one but has a nice 3 star standard and the price is more than fair. Well done.

This is the typical badly managed hotel, that charges a top price for a cheap hotel, not very well kept, probably underpaid and unappreciated staff. The only saving factor is that the reception staff is friendly. They just need to step it up to be able to deliver. The worst part was when we got removed from the beach chairs...
