“Quiet, pleasant ocean-front”
Reviewed 27 April 2011

Average size rooms w table and fridge, luggage closet, pleasant balcony.
Hearty breakfasts in open air, clean pool, casual. Good security. Hotel is well maintained.
Beautiful location on a quiet section of beach, on north end of town. There is a feeling of seclusion here even though it's close to town. While sunsets are not viewable from the hotel, beautiful views by the water or just around the adjacent point of land. Walking distance into town (about 1/2 mile) by beach or by street, but more convenient by taxi or car, for nightlife & shops.
German is definitely spoken here! English and Spanish are also fine.
By the way, Pochote is the enormous tree in the middle of the property.
Definitely would stay here again.

We stayed two nights and we will stay more nights next time. They are located very close to the beach and they have the best location in Jaco for the beach sand quality and cleanliness.
The room was clean, we had two double beds, air conditioning, hot shower and the breakfast (not included) very good. A large pool was front of our room with an impressive garden and a 700 years old tree (pochote is the name of the tree).
If you come by car, there is a safety guard always on duty around the property.
We recommend this place for several days.

A good ending by the beach to a fantastic 10 days in Costa Rica. My wife booked online, and I was a bit concerned! - was very happy with it in the end. There were a couple of bad reviews on trip advisor, and I thought I would correct them!!

My husband and I stayed at the Pochote Grande in 2005. We have decided to go back to Costa Rica in October. We are so excited about going back. Manfred was so great and the staff was also great. In the morning after breakfast, the cook would throw all the leftovers out to the iguanas. It was so neat ot see the iguanas come down out of the tree for potatoes and fruit.
