Do you guys have a restaurant onsite?
There is no restaurants, food or drink services on site. This establishment is strictly a cook your our meal, most of the rooms have kitchens or very small kitchenettes. Please be warned of sewage smells coming from the drains, only cold water in kitchen our stove did not work and our refrigerator froze our fresh food. The roof leaked on the night of a bad storm. We also spotted several cockroaches.

how many beds are in the suites?
It varies.We had three suites - all had two bedrooms - one had to doubles in both bedrooms, one had two singles in one of them, one had just one double in each. You can be pretty sure you can sleep 4 comfortably, 6-8 in beds if you don't mind sharing rooms. And you can use the couch as a bed - ours did not fold out, though.

Is there any transportation to Jaco for dinner and shopping?
Hey there, I know the hotel has some limited transportation, you can also get a taxi, or look for the local bus, which if you stay up to late may not be available. Or you can rent a bike, four wheeler or small car and go to the mant places near by. Good luck.
