I just returned from a great trip to Costa Rica, which included a two night stay at Clarita's at Jaco beach.Your hotel is better than advertized !! Friendly staff, good food, clean rooms and interesting characters to party with.. Clarita's is definitly a " BE BACK PLACE ".

The rooms are nothing special and needed some updating, but they are clean. You're not coming here for the rooms. You come for the ability to walk out of your room to the beach, the bar and the restaurant. It's really a great scene and was a lot of fun. Great for singles and folks who'd like to party. Overall...

Just came back from 11 days of fishing with the guys in Jaco at Clarita's. As advertised the Hotel was clean and safe and the beach and sunsets were great. But what is not advertised is the tremendous staff from the bartenders to the house keepers. The Clarita's staff was there to ensure that our stay was pleasent. The food...

We stayed at Clarita’s Hotel and had the best time of my life. I have been all over the world and have never been treated like part of the family anywhere else. Clarita was as sweet as I had dreamed and would walk on the beach with you, just about at the drop of a hat. The Women that work...

Just got back from a week long stay in Jaco at Clarita's and can't wait to go back! We booked our reservations from Clarita's website very last minute (2 or 3 days before arrival) and within a few hours I received a response back confirming our reservations. Once we arrived we knew we made the right choice in hotels, upon...

I stayed at Clarita's Beach Hotel during late May, 2008. The hotel and bar are located right on the water at the north end of Jaco Beach. Although the hotel is modest in its ammenities, it is clean and has all the conveniences necessary for a comfortable stay. The bar has good food, inexpensive drinks, Reggae music on Sundays, and...

I can bet you 98% of reviews on this place is by guys! I've traveled the world and not a fancy girl, but this was the armpit of Jaco if not Costa Rica! I've stayed in dives before, but at least paid dive prices...not $45 in lieu of the $15 noted in Lonely Planet 2007. "That review is very old,...
