Nice hotel right on the beach.

Location: Beach and location. Good restaurant there as well.
Nice hotel right on the beach (as close as you can get in Jaco) and you can hear the ocean. Has a TV but I do not recall a coffee maker. Not the newest but a good bargain.

Pros: Location and pool.
Cons: Water pressure.
Location: Plenty of places to eat and drinks.
Great location across from the beach and walking distance to strip of bars, stores and food. Rooms are ok. We had to switch our room because the water pressure was so low, and eventually there was no water at all. Nice pool and staff.
