After travelling around Costa Rica for a couple of weeks in homestays and hostels, I decided to give myself a bit of a treat. I chose Docelunas as it was highly recommended in the Lonely Planet and I could not have hoped for a more amazing stay. The hotel is away from the centre of Jaco, set in peaceful, beautiful gardens. The room I stayed in was a massive bungalow, complete with giant, comfortable bed, dark wood furniture, a very large bathroom with a bathtub, shower and fresh, white towels, a coffee maker, an ipod dock, cable television, air conditioning.. I had the best night's sleep of my trip. Within the grounds of the hotel, there's a gorgeous swimming pool, a great restaurant and bar and a spa/yoga centre where I had a very good massage.
It was quiet and relaxing, the staff were helpful and polite, the food great and the room's amazing..
It was definitely a jungle retreat as described but the descriptions and photographs on the website certainly don't do it justice (I have posted some of my own for you to see).
I went to Montezuma for a couple of days and then returned to Docelunas at the end of my trip. It was the best way to end my holiday.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants a bit of a treat away from the bustle of Jaco. I would definitely go back with a partner and think it would be an excellent place to stay on honeymoon. It's a good base for travelling further afield, having adventures and then coming back to get clean, refreshed and relaxed!
