Hotel Catalina was the perfect place for us! Located at the south end of Jaco beach, it was exactly the right mix of low-key, relaxing beach and a short walk into town for restaurants, nightlife, etc. It was quiet and has a beautiful pool that was immaculately clean, and basic, yet comfortable and well-appointed rooms. Not being nightlife folks ourselves, we instead took advantage of one of the many surf schools directly across the street, and the hostel a few doors down for simple food and morning fruit or gallo pinto and coffee. Our hosts were attentive and lovely people to get to know, and were gracious in helping us coordinate taxi pick-ups, day tours, and anything else we needed. We can't recommend Hotel Catalina highly enough. If you're looking for a peaceful beach getaway that still has access to a thriving downtown, this is for you!

Naomi's place was an absolute dream, RIGHT on the beach. Amazing views morning and afternoon. Naomi was amazing and was always there when we needed her help.

Hotel Catalina is just lovely. The Location is divine. The southern end of Jaco beach is much more laid back then the north side of the beach, but still conveniently located close enough to walk to the action. The hosts Naomi and her mother were extremely kind and welcoming. I will be back for sure! The rooms were clean and simple. They had plenty of space and a lovely chill environment with a pool facing the ocean. I highly recommend staying here if visiting Jaco! Also very close to hermosa beach and a lovely hike to take you there! Naomi will give you the tips you need for an amazing time. Definitley stay here if you love waking up in paradise !

Everything about Hotel Catalina is magical. The surroundings are amazing and the location could not be beat. Naomi and her mom were so helpful with tips about Jaco, where to go and always available to call us a cab when we just "couldn't walk anymore". I can't wait to go back!!!

I just spent a week in Jaco, directly ON the beach, in a very nice studio surrounded by a lucious garden. Naomi and her mam run a little jewel of a property, away from the main drag of town, and went out of their way to make sure I had a good experience. I would just add a bit of music and everything is perfect in Costa Rica.

Naomi and her mother Sandra made us feel at home, right from the start. Naomi arranged for an earlier check in time since we arrived in a shared van and didn't have control of our arrival time. Naomi greeted us at the gate and helped us get all our luggage to our apartment. We had booked a room with no air conditioning but after the first night decided that was a mistake so ask for a room with air conditioning and were immediately moved to an air conditioned room. During our 4 days at the hotel we would see Naomi and her mom on the hotel grounds and they would always ask how we were doing and did we need anything. Also, very helpful with suggestions for restaurants. 2 very nice people!
