I had a great multi day stay. Lots of bird sounds at 6 AM including a rooster as a great natural alarm clock. Also the occasional screech of macaws flying by. You can hear the surf at high tide. Good hot water in shower & AC controls work with a remote. Also a ceiling fan. Bright rooms . Fresh air...

Took advantage of the buy 3, get 4 nights Internet Special. Worth the price. Good, average experience at this 3 star property. The rooms are clean, basic and comfortable. Comfortable beds and a tv that can get you to CNN to see if we got involved in another war today. The curtains looked like they were last cleaned and pressed...

My father in law stayed here 8 years ago during our trip with my husband and 2 sons. We spent many hours at Clarita's bar with him. So when my husband and I decided to spend a few days in Jaco, booking 3 nights at Clarita's was a no brainer. The rooms are clean and sleep 3. You can get...

My title speaks for itself...I wouldn't stay here for 2 1/2 months if I didn't love this place. Not sure how many times I've stayed at Clarita's but wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. May not be for everyone but is perfect for me. Please feel free to read my past reviews and/or contact me with any questions. GRACIAS Clarita and...

This was my second trip to Clarita's and it was as good as the first time. The staff was great and the accommodations were clean. You can't beat it for the price. The food and drinks in the Resturante was great as well as the sunset

So to start, the hotel offers modest accommodations, but that should not be discouraging. Jaco is becoming more expensive and finding a hotel room on a budget is becoming a challenge. Claritas is priced well for those looking to stay for several weeks without breaking your bank, and the rooms are clean. The staff is incredibly friendly, the owners are...

We want to warn folks that Clarita's is not an all inclusive resort. If you want to enjoy PURA VIDA and a relaxed, slow paced vacation, this is the place for you. But, you will not find room service, elevators, gyms, saunas, in-room wet bars, instant service, concierges, butlers or maids. If you have an appointment to keep, a business...

The servers at your bar were excellent, very friendly. It was inconvenient thought that they also had to check people in for their rooms while simultaneously serving as cashiers. They kept stopping check in to assist people paying their bar/restaurant check. No manager of any kind was seen in the two days we were there. There is supposed to be...
