This was my second stay at Clarita's and second visit to Jaco. Once again the stay was beyond my expectations and the atmosphere, beautiful and friendly staff, excellent security and service and stunning location near the northernmost least crowded part of the beach were the best. The new waterfall feature pool is a great addition.
The afternoon surf is great and the water was clean. I had a great time. If you are looking to experience the friendly true nature of Ticos and a great mix of clientele, this is a great place. The staff as beautiful as they are friendly and the security made listening to the waves at night on the beach chairs or nearby walks on the beach at night feel safe. Watch out for the Guaro and OJ drinks though. They have been known to put you to sleep on the beach.
Clarita's is a beach hotel and not the Best Western or a 4 star resort so if you are looking for that, it is probably not for you. but if you are looking for great food and drinks fun clientele and staff, awesome beachfront view and local Tico vacation experience, you have found your place. The rooms were always clean and well kept, and the in room mini fridge was great, but no shampoo or blow dryers so bring your own if required.
The vibe and music and clientele and staff are great there. It lives up to its motto of getting Waco in Jaco, whether that means checking out on the beach or having a great home base for turning it up for some adventure, fun and excitement.
I will definitely be back.
