We absolutely Love Clarita's. We have stayed there numerous times and will continue to do so. The owner and the staff have always been wonderful to us! It is a quiet little place away from all the tourist things in town. It is on the beach. The rooms are always clean. We arrive, park the car and never have to leave. We have brought several quests with us and they were very pleased and will return. Security is great and they watch out for there guest. No matter what time we get up in the morning to watch the sunrise, they always have fresh café. The food is great and the beer is always cold. What else could anyone ask for? WE LOVE CLARITA'S!!!!

I don't know why anyone would criticize this place so vehemently - it is a motel on the edge of town with a rockin' beach bar.

Clean and beds that were comfortable enough. No problems with water pressure in our room, or water temperature. The mini fridge worked and you got a free cerveza with check-in. Really friendly staff.

It's a little walk from downtown but right on the beach. Food was decent and the bar was fun. Didn't go in the pool but it looked ok. Only there 1 night but definitely good for that or maybe a few more days; it's not a resort and doesn't promote itself as one.

Worst place we stayed in Costa Rica and we stayed at quite a few. Worst mattress I've slept on since the rack I had in the service. The water pressure was so bad you almost had to run around in the shower to get wet. Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy

Room Tip: Go somewhere else !!!

First off, we were quite misguided by the photos, thinking the giant beautiful condo complex in the pic was where the rooms we would be staying in were. We arrived in our room and were literally the only people staying there (and still paying high season prices, although to be fair it does say dates on the site). The rooms are TINY TINY TINY!!! The bathroom walls were kind of dirty.

The best part about Clarita's is the on the beach location, but the horrible unsmiling service (on the verge of rude) and not so great food makes it not worth the trip here. Also, on Thursday nights the place is crazy. We came back from an awesome dinner at Wahoos (where they prepared a feast for us with the Dorado we caught earlier that day!!!! That cook is INCREDIBLE, by the way), and tried to get in the Clarita's hotel parking lot, but just like the show, Walking Dead, we had to wait about five minutes while a herd of majorly drunk people filed by and finally realized a car was waiting to cross. It was pretty funny, actually. But then we tried to relax in the room while some questionable karaoke went on. We were giggling quite a bit but hey, good for them getting up there onstage. I'm sure some major liquid courage (and other stuff) helped a bit!

The whole experience could have totally been worse, but there just seemed to be way better places to stay in Jacó. Getting our $20 deposit at the end with a really grumpy "Pura Vida" salutation kinda sealed the deal. Ah well, you live and learn :-)

While not for everyone, Clarita's is perfect if you want a place with local flavor and comfortable facilities. Great private pool for hotel guests only. Neat bar and very good restaurant. Go someplace else if you want fancy and high class. Stay here if you want a place where local beach combing families come on the weekend but still have an active bar scene with very adequate facilities.
4th time to stay here and will continue to come back.
