Fodor's Expert Review Apartotel Flamboyant
100 meters (328 feet) west of Centro Comercial Il Galeone, Jacó, Puntarenas, 61101, Costa Rica
Though nothing special, these small beachfront rooms and apartments, many with kitchenettes, are a good deal. You have a pick of accommodations: rooms with air-conditioning and kitchenettes, rooms without kitchenettes, and rooms without air-conditioning. Cement-block beds will certainly keep you from rearranging the furniture, but the rooms are clean and tidy. All units have large terraces overlooking a garden and pool area where there's a grill for your use; second-floor rooms have balconies with partial sea views. Larger apartments can fit five to six people. It's just a few steps from the surf, and Jacó's busy main strip is a block away.
