This 17-story, 152-room behemoth, which opened in 2015, has been a game-changer in Jacó, and not just for the skyline. The luxurious rooms are decorated in a modern, not-too-splashy style, and the ocean views are awesome. You can choose from three restaurants: Adacus, with Peruvian-Mediterranean cuisine and a nice wine list; Parsley & Pepper, with Italian, Mexican, Japanese and other international foods; and El Zarpe Pool Bar and Grill for poolside snacking on wings, quesadillas, and seafood. The Liquidity Casino Bar serves up tropical cocktails to gamblers, while the Holy Moly! Disco Club lures late-night revelers. The Vegas–style casino has slots and gaming tables. A big, oceanfront pool features a waterslide and three cold-water Jacuzzis.
