“This property has by far the nicest swimming pool in Jacó, not to mention an amazing staff.”

Thanks Fodors ! And may we add, as the Fordor’s award winner in Costa Rica’s gateway to the Central Pacific, Jaco Hotel DoceLunas offers an ideal Costa Rica wedding venue and it’s  a great spot for a romantic and private honeymoon in Costa Rica.

Jaco hotel DoceLunas wins three Travelers’ Choice Awards

Jaco hotel DoceLunas has been winning Tripadvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards for several years now, but this is the first year our hotel in Jaco Costa Rica has won not just one, but three TCAs. Based on reviews from our very happy guests, Tripadvisor awarded Jaco hotel DoceLunas number the fifth best hotel for relaxation and spa vacation not just in Jaco Costa Rica, but in all of Central America!

DoceLunas also recevied a TCA for 11th best hotel overall in Central America and was one of very few four star hotels given a Traveler’s Choice Award for offering guests a bargain price.

We are proud of the efforts of our staff and the beautiful gardens and elegant and spacious rooms that helped us win these awards. Jaco is great base to sample the best of Costa Rica and DoceLunas is the perfect Jaco hotel to serve as your home away from home. We hope you will come join us in paradise at Jaco hotel DoceLunas.

Steel Pulse Jaco hotel video

Here is a video of Steel Pulse in concert at Jaco Hotel DoceLunas in Jaco Costa Rica.

We are hoping to have then back again in 2011 and we are also be negotiating with one of the most famous groups in Reggae music for a 2011 February or March show, so please check back.

Steel Pulse would make quite the wedding band for a Costa Rica destination wedding, by the way if you have $30 k or so to spend.

I doubt they would play a lot of covers for you though if that’s what you are looking for.

If you have a particular band that you want us to bring to our beautiful hotel in Jaco, or if you represent a band that is traveling through Costa Rica or Central America,  please let us know. We can arrange San Jose concerts as well for bands that wish to pass through Costa Rica as quickly as possible en route from North America to South America.
