Intimate Hotel
Reviewed 1 day ago

This is our third time to Costa Rica and this place is great if you don’t need to directly access the beach. It is only a short 5-10 min cab ride away to the beaches. We only came here for the massages but checked out the grounds. The massages were amazing here. Totally worth venturing out from our own hotel. It is such a quaint hotel, we could totally see ourselves staying here. All 10 rooms faces the small but nice pool. There is a small water slide that is on the lower level of the pool. It reminded me of the smaller hotels up in Arenal. The kitchen area is outside with tables and chairs. The staff is what sets this place apart. We stayed at the Jaco Casino Resort. The service here was way better compared to the level of service at we where we stayed. Wish we were here instead!

Perfect retreat just outside of Jaco
Reviewed 6 days ago

We had wonderful stay at and fantastic service from everyone at this resort. The staff and management go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. The resort is well located just outside of Jaco. It's a quiet retreat yet conveniently close when you want to go into town. We booked all of our activities through the resort which was really convenient and reasonably priced. We did 2 couples massage treatments at the resort and they were incredibly good. We highly recommend this resort and will treasure our memories from this, our first Costa Rica trip, for many years to come.

Wonderful staff!!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My friend and I stayed for three nights at this hotel and were especially pleased with the service! As soon as we arrived, we were given a personal tour of the grounds and reassured that anything we needed would be provided as well as possible. The staff provided information and helped us coordinate our chosen tours, they called in take-out dinner for us and even set our table when the food arrived. The tamales for breakfast were also delicious, the water was very clean and safe to drink, and we loved the jungle-like feel behind the hotel.

The main improvement I would suggest doesn't even concern the hotel itself, but there are multiple potholes to dodge on the road up to the hotel. We also thought the 6 minute drive to Jaco beach would be a bit of a pain at first (vs alternative walking-distance hotels), but we actually appreciated being a bit more secluded from the main town area once we settled in. Would highly recommend staying at Hotel Pumilio!

Nice, quiet place
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We spent 5 nights at the Pumilio and enjoyed all of them. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was good and we enjoyed having the pool just out our door. It was nice having only 10 rooms, made for a relaxing time. Met some great people at the pool and enjoyed cooking a couple meals outside. I would highly recommend it for families and others. The only draw back is they should get black out curtains. 5:45 comes too early.

Short but amazing stay!
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I always want to give credit where credit is due and I can honestly say that our recent stay at Hotel Pumilio was great!

The staff was great and always greeted us whether it was at breakfast, which was amazing, or in the evening after returning from on of our excursions or dinner.

Krishne and Juan was very professional as was everyone else! The rooms were clean and very well maintained. The air conditioner worked great and the bathroom was clean and well maintained too.

We were picked up at SJO and returned there as planned. No hiccups at all!

So to put this review in a category of what I read in the reviews prior to making our decision to stay, I can say don’t miss out on this property. There are plenty of places to stay closer to Jaco but this hotel is quiet and peaceful.

Thanks again to everyone at Hotel Pumilio for a wonderful stay! We will go back! Soon I hope!
