We have been fortunate to stay at the Horel Club del Mar and even meet Phillip, the owner. Phillip demonstrated a kindness toward his staff and that was reflected to the clients.

The hotel is clean, the food is excellent, the rooms comfy.

Hotel del Mar is the ONLY place to stay in Jaco.

Cute place to stay! After staying the night before in another hotel, which was horrible, the Hotel Club del Mar helped us check back into paradise.

The staff was VERY friendly as was the hotel owner, Phil. He introduced himself and checked to ensure everything about our stay was perfect. The restaurant staff was great. The food was delish.

The pool was great. The hotel is right on the ocean, which made for some gorgeous photos.

The room was nice. Beds & pillows comfy. The a/c was GREAT! Our room had a balcony facing the pool and ocean. Loved that for sure.

The only three tiny drawbacks was the wi-fi was a little spotty in the room, the semi trucks could be heard on the road right outside the hotel (was able to sleep just fine-great, in fact), & the shower head was really high.

The hotel is adorable and I highly recommend. It sits right off the beaten path of Jaco, which I preferred. Staying in the heart of Jaco the night before was a nightmare. If I ever travel back to Jaco, I'd stay here again for sure.

We found this place by accident and they gave us a one bedroom condo with a beach view. The condo was beautiful and we stayed 3 nights and used it a base for Manuel Antonio. The unit had a kitchen and AC and fans and a king bed with a great ocean view. The only negatives were a small safe and no in room wifi.
It was a little out of town but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you are going to Jaco for the party scene though, a place in town might be a better option. We rented SUPs and surf boards and were able to both right in front of our hotel. The beach was gorgeous.
We did encounter some tiny little ants in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view.

After reading many reviews and warnings about travelling to Jaco, we researched and booked 2, 2 bedroom condos. We were right on the beach with nothing obstructing the Beautiful view. We were 2 families = 11. I was so excited to find a washer & dryer ( had been traveling 5 days already and it was needed. Resort in at the southern end. We felt very safe! Resort is very nice, staff is wonderful! Pool is big, they provide balls for volleyball, with net or water polo or....Breakfast was included. Great choice. We would return and highly recommend. Owner also comes around to ensure all is good!

Club del mar, Jaco, Costa Rica. Be aware that the two bedroom and two bath suite, #10 is very noisy because it is facing the highway . Also, the air conditioning is worthless because the windows only have screen and wooden slats. The layout is nice and the kitchen is ready for cooking. There is also a nice large washer/dryer. This particular unit needs updating!

We never expect much when staying in Jaco, but we had an extra night, so we booked into this hotel. I had stayed there years ago.

I was very happy with our short stay. We had a nice room, dinner and enjoyed the pool.

We were welcomed and treated well.

Just stayed at the Hotel Club del Mar for a week with my sister for a special getaway vacation. We found this hotel to be our oasis for the week during our surf/yoga retreat with the Del Mar Surf Camp. The grounds are very beautiful and the staff is so friendly, including the owner, who you will see almost daily making sure everything is in order. The reception/lobby area has a cool open layout and looks into the bar restaurant area, which all looks out on to the pool and the ocean. Our room was very clean and had a direct ocean view with beautiful wood sliding screen doors that allowed us to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. We thought the beds were great, firm and comfortable. We also found the hotel food to be excellent and affordable, we were concerned because another reviewer had rated it poor, maybe they had made changes. The hotel provides towels for the pool and beach which is very nice. And its location is at the very south end of Jaco so you can visit the city, but you are also away from the city. If/when we go back we will definitely be making a stop at the Club Del Mar.
