      A nice little hidden jem

      Compared to other hotels in Jaco this was a hidden gem. The owner and staff were very friendly and included breakfast was nice. The pool is adequate just wish the bar was open. We had one cockroach in the room but was easily removed. The real story is an electronic item was left behing and hotel ownership contacted us soon after.

      The cool pool and outdoor shower, the greenery and Buddha theme, close to everything but not too noisy. Small but cozy. Friendly, helpful staff.

      Marcela was exceptional accommodating and helpful. She was able to help with recommendations on tour guides to Tabacon Hot Springs and give tasteful mix drink recipes 😉 Marcela was great! I will definitely come back to Buddha House to stay.
