    Would definitely come back!
    We loved this hotel. The location was great, and the small size — typical of Costa Rica — was perfect for privacy. We were usually able to go to the pool and not see any other guests (in the afternoon and evening). The owners were nice whenever we interacted with them, and the other small team of staff (who cooked breakfast, cleaned, answered questions and manned reception) were wonderful as well! Everyone was so nice. The rooms were clean, spacious, and well-appointee, but we kept getting mosquitos despite always having the doors closed. Seriously, we would open the door for 1 second and run behind each other. Nevertheless, new mosquitos every day. I guess it comes with the territory! We had so much bug repellent, it was fine. The pool was warm and clean. The breakfast was the same every day but wonderful and delicious: pinto, eggs, fresh fruit, toast, orange juice, coffee. We walked to the beach/main strip of town every day. It was an easy and short walk!

    It’s our third time in Costa Rica and Villa Creole was the best stay. We’ve been there 3 weeks and we loved it. Great people, great location. They made us feel like we are family, very caring, very warm. Close to the buzzing Jaco center and yet quiet enough to have a good night sleep. The room was clean, all the equipment worked as it should. We used our fridge a lot, we shopped in Maxi Palí ( it’s like Walmart in CR) 5 min away from the hotel and if we didn’t feel like cooking there are two Soda places on the same street as Maxi Palí. Soda means eatery with original Costa Rican food where a plate will cost you around 3000 colones ($5). The pool was clean and very well lit so one can use it day and night. Also the hotel was full of plants and flowers, we saw lots of birds, butterflies and hummingbirds while having breakfast. We had such a great time and we will definitely come back.

    Short stay, lovely place
    Let me be clear - we only stayed one night. It was my wife and I, celebrating a milestone anniversary and when we booked one of us was unemployed. When we showed up, we were both employed and decided to go somewhere more befitting our anniversary celebration. That is NOT a reflection on this hotel. It is cute, the host couple is amazing, Jaco seems to be a wonderful town (our 12 hours there were fun) and we both really liked this place. The breakfast was particularly excellent. Plus, Roxy the dog is great.

    My husband and I stayed for a night on the way back to the airport. We spent the day on the beach which is about one mile away and easy to get to. Even closer than the beach was the main road with many shops and restaurants. The hotel was very clean and rooms were spacious and comfortable. We didn’t use the pool but it looked awesome. Very quick check in. I would definitely stay here again.
