Reviewed 23 May 2012

In early April, my family was lucky to visit Costa Rica (perfect season). The first week we had a rest in San Jose - the most convenient point of departure, if you plan to tour the country. The next week was devoted to the ocean. I liked the offer from Jetset (www.jetsetvacations.com) Club Del Mar Hotel. I opted for the south Jaco because the place is very quiet, relatively quiet and clean beach, and taxis are always ready to take you to the city (3$) or to the airport SJO (1,30 hour drive on the new road, $ 80 per car).
Accommodation at the hotel was perfect for three adults (1Bd).
Staff - wonderful.The hotel restaurant each day offered special dishes from the cooks at a very good price.Every morning we started with a modest complimentary breakfast, although a separate price for something you can order extra. And when our vacation ended early in the morning and we met at the airport, the waiter kindly offered us a breakfast wrap with them.
The general impression I can see that the place is very quiet. Customers at almost was not. This may sound boring, but after a week of daily excursions Club Del Mar was a godsend for us.

Room Tip: Indeed, if you come during the week and early, it just may be the best place to get a house closer t...

We didn't think too much of the place when we first pulled up that night, but once we got to our room we went "Wow!". We had a living room, kitchen and bedroom facing the ocean. The room was decorated with gorgeous local Costa Rican wood art and lots of carved woodwork framing in the rooms. The room was clean and inviting and the pool and grounds are well kept.

When the air conditioning didn't work in the living room, we got a call from the front desk offering a 2-bedroom upgrade. We ended up staying put and the a/c worked fine, but what great service!

The only downside, and this was fairly minor, was that the main road was right behind the hotel and sometimes the trucks were loud when they were shifting down the hill.

The food at the hotel was good, but you must try Graffiti in town, simply a must do. The Tortuga Cruise was fun, but a little pricey for what you get. This was the second leg of our Costa Rican adventure and we just relaxed at Club DelMar for a couple of days after a big adventure in LaFortuna.

We did not stay at Club Del Mar but we ate at their restaurant. On our last night in Jaco, we decided to dine at the Club del Mar and what a great decision that was. The food was excellent and the service exceptional. The restaurant overlooks the hotel's pool with an ocean view. It was a wonderful last dinner for our vacation. Highly recommended.

We stayed here after 5 days in San Jose hustle and bustle...needless to say we were ready for some relaxing time. Enter Club Del Mar! We had a one bedroom villa (only 2 per building) with lounge chairs on our deck overlooking the yard and beach beyond. Beautiful view over the south end of Jaco Beach. Long walk or easy taxi into town. Continental Breakfast was included daily. We ended up eating here for dinner too. The food was excellent. We met the owner who along with all his employees insured we had a nice relaxing vacation.

Room Tip: One bedroom villa rather than regular room

Everything about this place was clean, tasteful, and pleasant. The landscaping and attention to sustainability was impressive. But more notable was the friendliness and attentiveness of the employees. From the owner to the front desk attendants to the waiters to the maintenance men to the maids, everyone did their job with integrity. The food was fresh, ample, and delicious. The location and accessibilty to the beach were exceptional. It's proximity to Jaco and other places of interest was perfect. I highly recommend that you experience this little treasure.

Room Tip: They were all good rooms!!

We enjoyed everything about this hotel. It's on the beach, the walk into town is short and pleasant, the staff is friendly. We enjoyed the breakfast and the drinks but did not eat lunch or dinner at the hotel. Renting chairs and surfboards is very reasonable on the beach, but the chairs for rent were about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. We loved the decor!

We stayed at this property for one night in April 2012. The people at the front desk were quite helpful and allowed us to check in to our room early in the morning. The grounds are well maintained and the dining areas were nice. We stayed in room 205 and my only negative comment is that this particular room needs some attention. There was a sizeable water spot in the ceiling in our bathroom and in the window slats above our shower was missing one of the panes of glass. While these things don't bother me so much, they might bother someone else. Otherwise the room was a standard size with 2 double beds and the decor was pleasant. It was nice to have the pool and property so close to the beach. but far away enough from downtown Jaco to not have to be subject to the loud noise of the downtown 'strip'. Finally, this hotel takes seriously sustainable tourism and I appreciate those efforts and try to support hotels that participate in that program.
