First off Greg is excellent. He goes out of his way to help any way he can. He helped set us up with surfboards. Gave us a lift. Helped arrange bus tickets and the list goes on. Great laid back space.

If you're going to be visiting Jaco make sure to check out the Sandpiper! My wife and I loved the location, the property, and the views. I would recommend this to anyone. Greg was an awesome host and a great help to us on our first trip out of the country! If we ever make it back to this part...

It's a cozy place with very good hosts who help you with anything you need. Restaurants and bars are within walking distance. The black sand is different and unique. It's a great place if you don't prefer crowded beaches. The room was big and comfortable with a very good air conditioner (which was needed in February). Most of the rooms...

I had an absolute wonderful time staying at the Sandpiper! Everyone is very welcoming especially Corey and Maya, there two friendly dogs! Delicious food is just a short beach walk away, and the beach is always warm in the summer! The whole hotel is filled with beautiful tropical flowers and cool iguanas!

Stayed with my family earlier this month- it was fabulous! Owners couldn't be nicer and the location was great for my surfing sons. Quiet place but close enough to go into Jaco for food or shops. Loved the setting- very peaceful and clean. We travel a lot and this was one of our best trips! Thank you Greg & Saritha...

This was an amazing place to stay! The grounds are gorgeous and Greg and Saritha are wonderful hosts who really care about their guests having a great time! Greg gave us recommendations on dining out, sunset drinks, the National Park etc etc that were spot on! With the new outdoor kitchens we ate breakfast in and had coffee everyday with...

We stayed in the Sand Piper Inn for 8 days in June. If you are looking for a beautiful Beach, it is hard to beat the view from the Palapa. We sat with our friends and enjoyed the beautiful breeze and a Beach you only dream about back home. No big crowds, perfect waves, clean and soft sand between your...
