Reviewed 29 March 2010

We stayed two and half weeks in this hotel while was on leave from AFGHANISTAN. We found the hotel to be in the perfect place. A 3 Min walk to downton JACO and 5 Min walk to the beach but still in a quiet neighborhood where you can relax and sleep. The rooms were spacious, well furnished and very clean. The grounds of the hotel are kept clean and orderly and great care is taken in the maintenance and landscaping. The hotel offers free internet, BBQ and a excellent complimentry breakfast. The hotel staff speak english,spanish and dutch and are always very helpful explaining where to go and what to do in Costa Rica and sometimes arranging it for you The owner and his staff treat you like family member. We had an excellent time there and it was well worth the money we paid. It is an outstanding 3 star hotel with excellent customer service. I would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend this hotel to a friend and co-workers.

Quiet and about 50 kilometers off the main road this well kept hotel is a Jaco secret. Great staff speaking both English and Spanish, good hotel food, two outstanding pools, and a covered porch to die for during a hard rain: A cervesa, a book, and a downpour. What else for relaxation? Within easy walking distance to everything one would want in Jarco. This hotel is great for families and singles. No late night parties and extremely quiet. Well worth it!

What can I say???? This was an awesome hotel with a very friendly staff. Victor the owner was visible on the property and even offered us a ride to dinner and to the next hotel we were staying. The free breakfast was even excellent and the staff for breakfast was great. I intend to return to this hotel again! It is perfect in its location to the beach, the pool was great and the guest were all friendly. You cant go wrong with this place.

We stay hee because Victor and his staff receives guests as they would valued family members. It is a family hotel and families flock here. There's a children's pool as well as two for adults, with brakfast iancluded along with Internet. If you stay for a few weeks, Victor, the owner will take you to his four star, exclusive hotel at Playa Bejuco, Esterillos where there is complete quiet, a beautiful beach and the food is excellent, as is the service. Naturally, there is Internet access and a swimming pool.
Both places can be found at their internet addresses and, of course, there are email addresses.
Did I mention that Victor and his staff will arrange any trips, excursions, deep sea fishing and visits for you? Of course, they all speak English.

We visited Mar de Luz the second weekend of February and had a very pleasant stay in this lovely family oriented hotel. We were happy that it's location is not in the city centre and not on the main street which can be busy with traffic and nightlife.

The staff is really friendly, well trained and the Dutch owner gave us a lot of tips on what to do and where to go (we were just starting our Cosa Rica trip) The rooms, pool area and garden are all very well kept and clean. We are confident to say that this is the best place to stay when visiting Jaco.

Quiet location, nicely maintained grounds, friendly staff (and owner), in walking distance of Jacó's shops, entertainment and (not so attractive) beach.
Rooms are spacious and well-appointed, but furniture works somehow too heavy for a seaside resort. Abundant breakfast, but furniture (chairs !) is too cumbersome and heavy.
All in all good value.
