“Good Times at Poseidon”
Reviewed 14 May 2005

In April 2005, our group of ten twentysomethings spent five nights at the Hotel Poseidon on Jaco Beach in Costa Rica. The Poseidon staff was great from the moment we checked in. Our group occupied the five "premium" rooms that the hotel offers, which include air conditioners, cable TV and private bath (all of which are apparently few and far between in CR). The rate was $65 USD per night, with tax (usually 16.39% on hotels) and a continental breakfast included -making it a fantastic deal (booked through the hotel's website). The rooms were clean but spartan, though nothing different from normal beachside accomodations in the US. What really made the Poseidon stand out again, however, was the staff. The front desk staff were great for setting up tours and activities (ask for Sandra), which included surf lessons, rainforest hiking, ATV and bike rentals, and snorkeling excursions. The restaurant was similarly superb, with a filling continental breakfast, traditional Costa Rican and American plates for breakfast and lunch, and a great dinner menu that included mostly local seafood. The 3d floor Sky Bar was also a treat, with a roof deck overlooking the town and an airconditioned bar showing sports and movies. The one caution I would urge would be to double-check your bill for errors at checkout, but overall we had an ultracheap, tanned, relaxed vacation made possible by owner Tim Odom and the Poseidon staff.
