Hotel Pochote Grande
Ranked #20 of 40 Hotels in Jaco
Reviewed 5 May 2017

We chose the Hotel Pochote Grande based on Trip Advisor reviews. We had a three day stay which was great. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. We had several meals at the hotel all of which were both adequate and delicious."Try the Schnitzel"
The grounds are well kept. The hotel is located on the beach and a short walk to town.
Manfred and Christian were friendly and helpful. We would choose this hotel again if we return to Costa Rica in the future.

The room smelled like old cigarette smoke and moldy wood. The internet did not work in our room; a few good boosters would fix that, but the owners are clearly dead set on being so cheap it hurts. Speaking of hurting, the towels are sooo rough! They need better quality towels (they were old) and some serious fabric softener. There was no mini frig in the room and they CHARGED for ice. There was no phone in the room. There wasn't any shampoo or conditioner. The pillows were shameful; old, flat, and absolutely useless. The mattress was old and IKEA quality (meaning very poor quality) and no blanket whatsoever was provided.

Not sure what all the other guests were talking about in terms of the owners being friendly. The male owner never smiled or interacted with us other than to reject requests. The female owner let me stand at the bar with no bartender thus no service because she was speaking with a German customer. This is not service. As an owner, you do not ignore a customer that wants to buy something just so you can finish a conversation. I am a business owner and a landlord and I would be ashamed to be so cheap and neglectful with my customers/clients.

We have been staying at Hotel Pochote Grande for many years and have had a spectacular experience every time. Manager Manfred and staff are always very accommodating and the facility is very well maintained. Although not luxurious, the accommodations are everything you need and the location on the beach is excellent. Every time we visit we make plans to do more but end up eating most of our meals at the hotel restaurant and relaxing on the property. We will continue to return to Jaco for the Hotel Pochote Grande experience.

This is was our first time visiting Costa Rica and Jaco. The hotel grounds are clean with lush tropical plants. The pool and restaurant are nice. Rooms have air conditioning and were in good shape. I would stay here again!

While vacationing in the holiday season in Costa Rica can be a great change in weather, it is not good as locals travel during what is called "dry season" which makes getting a room at a luxurious hotel a challenge. One of the only options that had enough rooms to accommodate our large group was Pochote Grande, it is a budget friendly hotel with very simple accommodations {no bath soap, the towels are small and a single sheet to cover yourself with while you sleep}. Location is on the beach, however when we visited the surrounding areas were in development and we were woken up at the crack of dawn by construction workers. The beach was lots of fun.
