Some may frown at the notion of this location. But it's quite entertaining. It must be understood that you will be approached by ladies of the evening offering their services to you. And that's their Cup of tea. If you let them know you are not interested in their services they will leave you alone. They will recognize that that's...

Very nice place for adult entertainment, the beach area is a sight to see and one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. I would advise anyone that is looking for a good time to visit this hotel.

This place is overpriced and caters to a certain special interest population, I stay here to gamble and play poker. The rooms are pretty comfortable usually with two bed. They have a safe and refrigerator in the room. Rooms are we'll cooled. There is a pool that shuts down at 7. Poker starts at 8 pm. Usually better games during...

Haven't stayed here for 2 years -pretty much the same. A great beach front property . Restaurant is very good -$$. Forget the Casino -go to Crocs instead. "Music" until 1:00 AM -pretty lame to say the least . Book a room to the right of the restaurant-quieter .Not recommended for families . Hungry hookers abound .

This place is not for family. However, it is for couples and singles.. Front desk was friendly, rooms were good, right on the beach and so much beautiful local flavor to look at. Cocal is within east walking distance of many local restaurants and cabs are always waiting out front.

I recommended 2 nights maximum in a visit to the location. There are several hotels within a 2 buck drive radius and the taxis a are safe. Now you will be taken by the cheap drinks, lots of friendly women. Have a budget. Stay in a budget and you will be just fine. This is a do over for me...

Had a great time at night fooling around on the tables. Wasn't too crowded, perfect amount of people. Staff are friendly and all around to assist. I would recommend. Watch out for escorts in Jaco! It is in the middle of town so, you can just about walk everywhere.

I came here for the purpose of meeting the ladies. Just like most people in modern times, we want to be able to access the Internet. The hotel advertises having customer Internet connection. However, that claim is somewhat deceptive, in that it goes down every few minutes. In addition to that, hotel staff suggests being by the pool in order...

This place is what it is. It's to pick up women and do some gambling. It was super funny because they have a security guard and it seems his sole job is to make sure people don't chew gum so I felt safe with his expert gum hunting abilities. If you want to find prostitutes this is the place for...
