We had a wonderful time at the Hotel 9 on our boys trip this past week. The rooms are really nice and comfortable. Proper AC is a key to a trip to Costa Rica and the AC in this place was great (It felt like a meat locker when we wanted it that way). We wanted to rent out a property entirely to ourselves and we had a party of 12. I decided to choose this property after reviewing several others and the reason was the assurances by the owner. I was in contact with him throughout the process. I really felt comfortable working with him. Jack is a perfectionist and it shows with how much pride he has with his hotel. His staff (especially Marianna, Nelle, and Joanna) are wonderful people who go out of there way to make you feel comfortable. The restaurant is really good as well and we had no problem either eating in or eating out. As you will see in the pictures, you are literally on the water but you are no longer then a 5 minute cab ride or a 15 minute walk to all of the action in Jaco. We felt if we wanted to go out on the town that we could and we were also far enough away so we could relax if we wanted to. Jack, you are a gem and thanks for making this a great experience. We will stay at your place in the future. PURA VIDA!!!
