    Pumilio Mountain & Ocean Hotel
    Amazing stay
    This little boutique hotel is located far from noisy Jaco town, but close enough to go by taxi if you need to go for eating, shopping, etc. Rooms are big and spotlessly cleaned. The best of this place is amazing personal service that the front desk offers to arrange everything for us, not only tours and activities, but also transportation and food delivery. They also paid for taxis so we feel free not to worry about local currency and tips. Once we dined out in town, but rather preferred to order food delivery and enjoyed it on our own dining table on the terrace attached to room. It was so relaxing that we all want come back here when we have a chance to visit Pacific side of CR.

    The Hotel is far from everything so if you do not have a car, do not even think about staying there ! We had a car so it was ok The hotel has only 10 rooms so the level of services reflect that . . Breakfast is very disappointing - very little variety. They will do your eggs any way you want but have no veggies or anything to go with it except onion or ham or cheese. You can not bring anyone from outside to visit! Rooms are nice,comfortable, nothing fancy or luxurious. . . Over priced, over rated . . . It still a beautiful place to be . . .

    Perfect hotelin the perfect location
    Absolutely amazing hotel! It was quaint, yet our rooms surprisingly large. The outdoor kistchen on our patio was perfect for storing our fresh fruit and beverages, then relaxing on the patio enjoying. The staff was so kind and the accommodations were exceptionally clean. Was close to Jaco main town (7 minutes ride) but far enough away to feel secluded

    Very Good8.0
    Pretty hotel, inconsiderate staff
    This is a small boutique hotel that is off the beaten track and secured with locked gates and a guard after hours. It is pretty, clean and very comfortable. It was perfect for a one-night stay before heading back to the airport in San Jose after a week at another resort near Uvita. The pool is lovely and is overlooked by the outdoor restaurant where a delicious breakfast is served. What brought my rating down was an experience I had with the front desk staff. I was told they would print my boarding pass but when I used the hotel's computer to log in the info, the staff did not allow me a chair or any comfortable means to access the desk top. I ended up having to kneel on the hard floor in front of the main entry with other guests walking around me to avoid tripping. Although I am an active older woman, it was both uncomfortable and embarassing. I would request of the owners to have a computer available for guest use. It is done in most other hotels of this quality.
