This is my first review on Trip Advisor. Trip Advisor Reviews have helped me out on many vacations in the past so I wanted to help the next person looking into Jaco and the Hotel Poseidon. I spent 6 nights at the Hotel Poseidon in Jaco Costa Rica. The previous positive reviews were all accurate in their descriptions. The Hotel was part of a great surf camp arranged by Third World Productions. I arrived in the early afternoon to the sleepy town of Jaco and Hotel Poseidon. The atmosphere is a great example of the town itself. Very laid back and relaxed. The rooms are clean, big showers and cool AC. The wireless is good but occasionally they need to restart the router at the front desk to reconnect with lost signals. The pool is a little small but a great to cool down from the mid day heat if you going during the CR summer. I had the free continental breakfast every morning which consisted of fresh fruit, fresh baked banana bread, coffee and oj. Nice way to start my morning before I left to the surf camp. Although Jaco can be quite the party town the Hotel Poseidon is about 100 metres from the beach and 4 buildings off the main street. For me it was very quiet and peaceful. There is a bar/restaurant next door that some reviews have complained about but I'm a heavy sleeper and did not notice any noise at all. If your looking for 5 star facilities and comforts this might not be the place for you. But for the price this is a great stay with amazing atmosphere. I had lunch twice at the bar and tried and the 2 can dine for dinner for $35 one evening. All meals were very fresh and cooked in an open kitchen not 10 from your table. Just down the street at the beach is a restuarant/bar called Bubba's that you should visit for a cool shaded lunch or to watch the sun set. I would highly recomend this Hotel for anyone looking to spend some time in Costa Rica. If your looking for a Surf Camp look up Jack at Third World Productions who books his clients at Hotel Poseidon. All in All a 9 out of 10 for a total vacation experience.
