  • We loved this place!! The view from the handcrafted rocking chairs immediately outside our room was magnificent!! The beach, palm trees, swimmers and surfers made for interesting viewing. The entire resort is clean, and filled with quality furnishings. The staff is very helpful. We did not find the bathroom to be too small. This really is a hidden gem on Jaco Beach! Early morning beach walks are a necessity!

  • This is the 2nd year I visited Jaco Laguna Resort. 5 stars. Very clean, super quiet, relaxing, great pool. Resort is the perfect distance from town, as to be quiet at night, but just a one minute drive to downtown. I highly recommend this resort. We stay for 10 days each year, everyday we find a new activity that is close to the resort. There is surfing, horseback riding, ATV’s. Fishing, WATERFALLS !!! All nearby.

  • Amazing fun place I just got back from this great resort again and I laugh at some of the reviews I read. I have visited just about every hotel in town and this place is way better than the rest. They just recently remodeled and also added live music a few times a week, I was there last Saturday and they had about 250 people there enjoying the music and eating the high quality food they serve. I had fresh tuna as all their fish is fresh daily and it was outstanding. This hotel should be number one on trip adviser. I will never stay anyplace else when in Jaco. The Tiki bar is fabulous.

  • Great Stay A wonderful place tucked away on the south end of the beach away from the main part of Jaco but still within walking distance or short cab ride to the centre of town. Room was great with two king sized beds. The only thing that would have been nice, would have been a fridge. Room was clean and quiet. An in-room safe was a great feature as well. The only negative thing was the laundry service. Clothes were returned still quite damp, only a few items folded and very dingy (did not seem clean at all but did smell nice) and the price was astronomical. $40 US for two small bags. I would have much preferred to have had the option to do my own laundry. The food was amazing. We ate almost all our breakfasts and suppers there. Never had a single thing we didn't like. Drinks at the Tiki bar were awesome as well. An easy walk from hotel to El Miro lookout (ask at desk about this one) and also the Jaco lookout along the highway. The staff is more than happy to set up tours etc. Many Scarlet Macaws are seen nearby. Surf lessons available just outside the property.

  • Family vac We ended our 2 weeks trip in CR with 5 days in Jaco. Perfect relaxing beach hotel with great possibilities to surfing, zipline horseriding etc.

    The staff was very friendly, surroundings beautiful and cosy and the best location on the beach. The food was great, could take some time to get it served though. New year was amazing with bonfire and marshmallows for the kids before they went to bed.

    Very familiar and friendly. We travelled with 3 children aged 5-12 and we definitely recommend it to everybody coming to CR for a some days sunbathing on the south side 🙂 We hope to come back!

  • Nice place!

    We stayed next to Laguna in a rental home (can't comment on the rooms) and the staff were always welcoming with great appetizers, entrees and drinks. Wonderful breakfast. They rent surf and boogie board right out front on the beach-very affordable. We got massages there and it was awesome.

  • 5 star ratingFab accom Stayed here for 5 days and cannot fault it. Right on the beach where we were able to enjoy surfing lessons. Absolutely fabulous food and staff couldn't have been more helpful. The manager/owner Jason is such a friendly guy and was able to offer lots of advice on where to visit etc. Beds were more comfy than my bed at home. Would definitely recommend this accom to anyone. If you want to be in the thick of the partying scene you may want to get somewhere more central to Jaco city but being just on the outskirts suited us perfectly.

  • 5 star ratingGreat customer service! We stayed here 5 nights. At first we were in room #7. It felt like a cave and

    I could hear children playing with their toys right above our heads. So I asked for a different room at the desk and the nice girl gave us the key to #15 to check it out first. We switched to that room, it was big and had a good size bathroom, comfortable bed and pillows. Love the coffee in the room only wish there were mini refrigerators. The food was excellent, good sized portions and great prices. Better than eating in town. Really appreciated the owner taking some time to introduce himself and make sure our stay was enjoyable. The location is perfect, it was quiet yet close to everything. and the beach area was beautiful.

  • 5 star ratingWe would Definitely go back! We live in CR & have been traveling to several areas in CR & know what’s good & bad. This is a great little place no matter what anyone says. Mom & Pop Hotel & very relaxed in low season. Great owners & staff. Very plain, simple rooms but quiet, comfortable, & very clean. It has a few cats on the property that keep the mice & other critters away. It’s on the south end of Jaco so away from the chaos of the city & a long walk into town, shorter walk on the beach. The food was pretty good, esp dinner. The beach & lagoons were very clean. In High Season, or CR Holidays, there can be a lot of trash, Sad, but it’s a developing country with many very poor people & people are learning to s-l-o-w-l-y clean up after themselves, everywhere here. Don’t take anything valuable or leave anything on the beach. Keep in mind, CR is a Jungle with bugs, birds, critters & volcanoes. Many beaches here have dark sand & rocks. Ck the tide charts because at low tide, the beach is smooth sand & at high tide, you can’t see the sharp rocks under the water. I never go barefoot on any beach, anywhere. Jaco can be a Sketchy place @ night, so start early & enjoy this beautiful country.

  • Amazed. Excellent location, beautiful place overall, the rooms are super roomy, the beach is right outside, food was delicious and well priced for being a hotel, the staff was very friendly and the pool is perfect. Only draw back was that pools were dirty the 2 days we were there. The rooms were also very well priced.

  • 5 star ratingParadise!! I just stayed at the resort for a week and it was a great experience. The resort is about a mile south of all the craziness of downtown Jaco. It’s a two minute cab ride to get to the action but you will enjoy the bliss. The resort is very clean and the staff are very friendly. The Tiki bar is a great spot to watch the sunsets and the beach is right in front of you. There is an outdoor massage casita and you can get surfing lessons right on location. Highly recommended!

  • Great hotel ! Despite some bad reviews, my friend and I had a great stay at Jaco Laguna. The service was friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. The beach access is incredible, with a nice pool. The tiki bar was an added plus. Would definitely come back here, and wish we had stayed longer.

    Plus- the surf school on site is amazing and reasonably priced !
