“Beautiful, lush, great hospitality. Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

While spending time in Jaco, Doce Lunas is one of my favorite places in this town. They have great venues. They allowed me to practice swimming classes in their pool, they allowed us to have a dance class for toddlers. It is so beautiful there. It is like being in a different world. They have preserved the natural beauty of coats rica. It is very safe. Out there the monkeys and scarlet macaws and toucans are abundant. The food is great. The hotel is great. A real 5 star establishment. I recommend stopping by for dinner or drinks. They have excellent venues on their beautiful lush gardens. I totally recommend the hotel.. It is like waking up in paradise. It is a world in its own. If you visit Jaco it is a must and if you are staying in Jaco and looking for a chill, safe, beautiful invigorating place to stay this is it.

We were staying in Jaco and went there for dinner and drinks with some friends of ours that were staying at Doce Lunas. We wished we were staying there instead! The pool and the grounds were beautiful. Our friends' room was really nice (and big). The food and people that ran it were great. There was some live music one of the nights we went which was fun. We hope to make it to their Jungle Jam in January. Awesome place.

I recently stayed at this hidden gem for the 5th time this year, and honestly every time I visit I find something new that makes me fall more in love with this place. I'll first start with the excellent and very attentive staff. They are the friendliest and efficient collection of people you will ever meet when staying at any resort. They make you feel like you are the only one staying at the resort, from the always smiling front desk employees to the beautiful and attentive housekeepers. The gate keepers are really cool. When you are ready to go into town, these guys order the taxi for you and when returning from enjoying downtown Jaco ( which by the way is only 10 minutes walking or $2 by taxi from the Resort ) the guys are there to usher welcome you back with the most heart warming smiles. They genuinely are happy to see you and you feel that. The owner is always on hand if needed, and is very down to earth. A really cool guy. The Beach is also only 10 min walking from the resort, and the walk is really cool because you cut through the neighborhood to get the main road. There are chickens and roosters running around, and being from the city this site is extra cool for me. I visit there at least twice a year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else but Doce Lunas. I read in someone's review about the cats on the premises. The cats are a delight and add to the experience. It's like they know you are guests and are happy to see you too..lol. The pool is wonderful, and never crowded. Overall this is the best place to stay when visiting Costa Rica hands down. If there were any Cons I haven't encountered any during the many visits there. I highly recommend Doce Lunas.. "PURA VIDA"... (It means pure life ) a saying for the native Costa Ricans. See you there!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the right side of the resort are more like suites... EXCELLENT!!!

Great for quiet surroundings, very nice pool, A/C was great. No issues at all :)
A good central spot to call home, while visiting Manuel Antonio or neighboring parks.
Lots of cats to play with, very nice.

I visited Doce Lunas again this summer. While I did not stay at the hotel this time (I was renting a condo down the road), I greatly enjoyed having dinner there, attending concerts, happy hours with live music most fridays, and wandering the ground with the kind permission of the staff. It seems I always find something new to explore in the gardens, from interesting tree frogs, frsh mangos and a little monkey who was very interested in the yoga studio. It's really a wondrous place, off the beaten path, but yet only a $2 ride from townl. +

Thanks Brad! We are glad you got to see one of the monkeys! We have had the kinkajous on the property since we opened, but the monkeys left during construction. We preserved the canopy in hopes they would come back, and finally they did. Sightings near the yoga studio are becoming increasingly regular. Fyi - for other guests - we only do a few music shows a year, and we will always tell you if we have one going on.

My band The Judy Chops had a great time staying at Doce Lunas on our recent trip to Costa Rica. Relaxing poolside at the beautiful swimming area and enjoying the impeccable food and great service was exactly what we needed in the midst of a busy summer schedule! 5 days here left us wanting more! Can't wait to come back next year!

I got engaged on my trip there!
The resort is a very short taxi ride away from Jaco. There are also a lot of outdoor activities that the resort can set up for you like horseback riding, canopy tours and hikes.
The resort is beautiful, the rooms are great. The food and service were excellent.
