Guest reviews for Hotel Blue Marlin - Nightclub & Sports Bar on Site

Family (1)
3 out of 5
True to Expedia’s reputation, this hotel had rave reviews, but upon arrival the situation quickly changed. The hotel was undergoing remodeling, so a lot of dust, noise and traffic. It was virtually impossible to locate staff, especially with no phone in the room. Ran out of toilet paper on day 2. Jaco is great! Everyone is friendly and polite, INCLUDING the prostitutes and drug dealers outside the South Gate next to my room. On a positive note, the hotel was only a block from the beach, and a half block from the main boulevard. And seriously, I never felt threatened in Jaco, not even by those dealing in illicit activities. But for those not experienced in world travel, this is probably not the hotel for you.

Thank you for your stay at Hotel Blue Marlin. We're sorry to hear of anything you didn't like about your experience. I'm not sure how you weren't able to locate a staff member and I'm sorry to hear that. As far as running out of toilet paper, I don't see how the housekeepers would not see that and restock your bathroom with it? We have plenty on site and there is no reason for you to go without. Did you mention to someone that you needed more toilet paper? As far as any noise, we apologize as we just at the very end of final construction building a very nice nightclub on the property. On a positive note, we are glad you enjoyed our prime location and your stay overall. Yes, people are very nice here in Jaco and Costa Rica in general and we hope to have you back with us again. We work hard to make every guests stay a pleasurable one.
