“Best food in Costa Rica”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 via mobile

I was only able to stay here one night, because they were fully booked the other nights. The staff was great and the food was amazing. The chef recommended the tuna and it did not disappoint. I highly recommend staying at this hotel and eating the food in the restaurant. I will be staying and eating here in all my future trips to jaco.

Read about this hotel in a 3-year old Frommer's guide to Costa Rica. In the guidebook the hotel was described as being clean and new, and was in the "Top Shelf" category. Instead of being clean and new, the hotel was tired, and slightly grimy, with poor mattresses where bulging springs discourage a good night's rest. The breakfast was basic and unexceptional, but the staff was friendly. The location, however, is excellent, so if you can get them to make you a good deal on the room you might want to overlook the generally poor quality of the hotel.

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you did not think the hotel was being kept up. It is a constant job is this climate and we are always working on the hotel. Lightning strucj our hotel on May 10th and this has forced us to re-direct the budgeted money for maintenence to replacing 4-TV's, 3 computers and much more. We just bought 3 new matresses in the last 2 weeks. Without knowing what room you are in, it is hard to know if you changed the matress you spoke. Please email us to let us know which room you stayed to make sure we changed it. Also, if you could give us more specifics of how our hotel looked "tired" it would be helpful. Again thanks for your feedback.

My best friend and I travel to Costa Rica quite often for our girls surf getaway. We found this hotel during one of our trips while we were walking to el Bohio restaurant, and we decided to stay there on our next trip. Yes the rooms are small, but the bed was comfortable enough, the bathroom was a decent size, and the rooms were clean, and there's a huge bonus - each room has an A/C unit! We would wake up early for a morning surf then head back to the hotel for breakfast which I also recommend. After breakfast if we were not in the mood to walk back to the beach to lay out and wait for the tide, we used the small pool in the hotel. The staff members were welcoming and very down to earth. This hotel is not a resort by any means but it's exactly what we look for when we go on our surf trips to Costa Rica - I will definitely stay here again :)

Steps away from the Pacific ocean and the shops in Jaco, the Poseidon is ideally situated as a base for your relaxing vacation. You're a short walk from the beach, and you have a beautiful indoor pool if you have had enough sun. If you're hungry there is a wonderful restaurant on the first floor, and a sports bar on the second floor with brand new HD tvs to watch your favorite teams.

Great little hotel,helpful staff,good food and cold beer!
Located right in the middle of town and 2 minute walk to the beach.
Check out the sky lounge during football season.
Lots of TVs to watch your favorite team and a balcony to people watch on the street below.

Room Tip: Toward the back of the hotel if you are a light sleeper.

My family (all guys) and I decide to make a first-time trip to Jaco beach, we found the staff and the owner to be pleasant and very friendly. The hotel is very close to shopping and only a few steps away from the beach. The food is very good and at a fair price with regard to the other restaurants in the area. This is a small hotel but all in all I had a great time there and I look forward to visiting again.

In this travelers book this establishment is like "One Stop Shopping". The owners and staff offer you that "warm and fuzzy family atmosphere" during your entire stay. The room is a value and clean. The food is AMAZING, breakfast, lunch and dinner in the downstairs dining area. If you want to chill, have a drink and look out over the town, they even offer a ROOFTOP SPORTS BAR! Everything you could want under one roof and one block to the beach. Do yourself a favor.....

Room Tip: Downstairs in the back are more private
