Pass by the clover-shaped pool with a swim-up bar on the way to one of Hotel Poseidon's boutique-style rooms. Just a half block between the beach and Jaco's main street, Poseidon is fit for enjoying the surf and sun in the day and the restaurants, bars and clubs at night.read more close
Hotel Poseidon has 14 beach-sheik rooms, each with heavy drapes, faux walls and a palm tree painting. The 10 premium rooms, $96, come with two twin-size beds, A/C, fan, desk, safety deposit box, cable, Wi-Fi and mini fridge. The rooms appear to be recently updated, but the bathrooms lack the same panache. Blue mosaic-tile bathrooms look a little worse for wear with some dark spots in the grout and a rusty soap dish in the shower.
Poseidon restaurant's an open air-patio looking out to the street that lets in the ocean breeze. Known for its seafood, the restaurant makes a delicious pan-fried trout almadine with shaved almonds and citrus marinated onions and peppers. The menu has all the Costa Rican fare… chicken, fish, steak, pasta and burgers with a few creative additions like the house salmon dip made with cream cheese, orange juice and brown sugar - not great, but hey it's different.
