Kangaroo Hotel Jaco Reviews
Away from the Hustle Apr 19, 2011
The Hotel Kangaroo was a nice place to stay at while in Jaco. It's location is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the party strip so you can steer clear of the riff raff if that's your intention. Although it's still within walking distance and only a $2 cab ride to get to the party areas. From the beach it's about a five minute walk, just around the corner and the owner lady claimed it was the best section of the beach- I couldn't tell the difference but maybe she meant it was the area with nicer accommodations around the area. Either way it was all good. We stayed in an air-conditioned room with two beds for $40 a night, they also had a couple rooms without a/c for probably a cheaper price. There is a quality kitchen with everything you need for cooking or keeping your drinks cold. There is one laptop provided for community usage but they also provide wifi- so bring your own computer unless you want to wait your turn. Across the street is a nice restaurant with cheap prices and large portions, I preferred eating there instead of in the central area. The staff was all good- never pressured us to do any tours or use their services and they did book us a canopy tour when we asked them. There is also an awesome bull terrier on duty as a watchdog and she was cool. They also have bikes w/locks that you can use for free with no time limit. That was nice for getting around and exploring. They do laundry for you if needed and also have pool for lounging about in. The only drawbacks were we only received one key for the two of us, so that caused some issues at times, the cleaning lady never came into clean the room, and they could use some water on site to sell. Overall the stay was a good time.
