I recommend this place for those who want to party all the time and don’t mind loud music almost all day,

Hotel Blue Marlin This is a new place to stay in Jaco. Located on the other side of the street from the Cocal (and its awesome restaurant - Latitudes), it is a perfect central Jaco location. Off-season, I was the only room occupied out of the 10 rooms they have. Super quiet and it felt funky having the whole hotel to myself. It has a nice pool and supposedly a great wood-oven pizza, bar, and Republik dance club... but they were closed in the green season (May). Maybe open weekends, don't know. Bring a group of guys for the weekend and you can literally take over the place! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED hotel and staff/owners who were incredibly polite and friendly and accommodating.

Party central
Do not stay here if you want sleep. We were a group of four staying here for weekend of partying. The bar was right across from the pool from our rooms. The club was to the right of our room with a/c. We loved it! Hung out at the bar a lot. The rooms itself was okay, more like a motel, no furniture inside, but we had a bench and table in front of the room. Thursday and Friday, club closed at 2am. Saturday went on until 2:35am. The casino was to the left that led to the beach, to the right was the liquor store and the main street to walk with everything food, bank, shopping, pharmacy, grocery store, etc

6/10 Good

It's a great place to go if you're a single guy looking for a good time. There's a disco on premise AND it backs up to a nightclub (sharing an almost common exterior wall) that has so much bass it rattles the metal roof if you have a room by the pool. There are other rooms not by the pool behind the office, I didn't get to be in one, but I would recommend asking about it if you want to sleep. Scholarship girls are everywhere lots of fun. Bar has great drinks and great food it's just really loud till 2 to 4 a.m. 4 nights a week. It's a party place, more of a bachelor party place actually. There was no maid service the 5 days I was there and the beds were mediocre but the sheets were clean

2/10 Poor

The ‘hotel’ is actually an older style motel with rooms surrounding the pool. The pool is also a club/bar. The club blares music from huge speakers about 10 feet (literally) from you room door. The music plays until 2:00am each night. If you are partying at the bar, that’s fine. If you are in your room trying to sleep, impossible. On a Wednesday night, at mid-nite, with not a single customer at the bar, I asked if they could stop the music. They wouldn’t even entertain the idea. The wait staff was partying. As far as I could tell, I was the only guest. The place had a a lot of construction going on. There is no food on-property. I checked out and moved about 100 feet closer to the beach at the Cocal Hotel/Casino. The room was much nicer, $10 a nite cheaper, it’s a true resort with several restaurants, etc. I tried for a refund. The Blue Marlin referred me to Orbitz, Orbitz refused. While my Jaco trip was otherwise very pleasant, Orbitz and the Blue Marlin failed me entirely. I don’t leave bad reviews generally, but seriously the Blue Marlin is a dump.

Not recommend
The room was clean and the location is centrally located. But no maid service, the night club is just outside the rooms and opens at around 8 pm and stays open until 2:30 in the morning. Very loud so sleeping is not an option until after that. Would not stay there again.
