Me and my girlfriend were supposed to stay at Hotel Perico Azul for 3 nights, we ended up staying there for 2 weeks.
The environment is perfect. It is calm and relaxed and you get to meet a lot of nice people that are travelling. The rooms are clean and nice and you can decide by yourself if you want to have a small kitchen in them or not. Outside the rooms, you have a small area with a pool and a sofa where you can hang out during the days when you're not at the beach, which is great. They also have a big kitchen that you can use that is fully equiped.
Perico Azul is located 3 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from the Jacó town, which is great because you don't hear the noise from the bars at night but you still don't have to take a cab.
They also have a surf school at the hotel, called Tortuga Surf School. I surfed with the school almost everyday, which was one of the best experiences of my life, The school can honestly teach anyone how to surf, it doesn't matter how old you are or in what phisical condition you're in. You can have classes with them or only rent boards. If you want to learn how to surf or improve your surfing skills I strongly recomend the Tortuga Surf school.
Last I just want to say that the staff at Hotel Perico Azul/Tortuga Surf is awesome. There are mainly 3 people working there: Celine, Mike and Doggy. They helped us out with everything and they're wonderful people with big hearts.
If anyone is going to Jacó, Costa Rica you HAVE to stay at the Perico Azul and try out the surf school because it's the best!
