“Enjoy life - pura vida”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

The stay in Cabinas Jade Mar is just an amazing thing. There is a huge view to the bay from most of rooms, the garden with all plants and animals living upon them, the rooms as such. Johnny and Gretel, the owners, are extremely attentive and they fulfil each possible guests wish. Rarely I have seen such attentive people, gracias a los dos de corazón (aunque mí comentario llega muy tarde)! The price for the accommodation is more than worth it.
Private rooms feature everything you need: comfortable beds with fresh linen, toilet and shower in a separate, smaller room. They even provide mosquito nets on the windows. In any case, you will not regret a stay in that hotel.

Room Tip: Chose a private room because they provide a patio with bay view - priceless!

We stayed for 3 nights at Jade Mar in the standalone bungalows and enjoyed every night of our stay. The rooms are basic but clean and functional and had killer views of Drake Bay from the front porch of the room. The best part of Jade Mar is that Jonny and his wife demonstrates that budget hotel doesn't mean budget service. They went out of their way to organize our trips in the area and also made sure that our laundry was done on time in the morning despite the power outage on the last night of our stay there. They also called us out to check out the different birds that visit their garden and we spotted several interesting ones there including a mot mot. A definite top choice for travelers on a budget.

During my travels I have met many hotelmanagers ; nice ones , friendly ones , not so friendly
ones ... and than there are Jonny and his lovely wife . They are in a league of there own . They will do anything for you to make your stay more enjoyable , like when we arrived all wet , the lady put all our clothes in the dryer . We left after a week as if we left good friends behind and I hope we will see them again some day , people like them make this world a better place .
Besides that , rooms are kept spotless and the amazing garden is like a zoo , parrots , hummingbird ,honeysuckers , woodpeckers , tukans , etc. Some don't bother to go to Corcovado and just sit the garden , making beautiful pictures . Just amazing !
The place does not have a restaurant but just a few steps down there is the Heladeria which makes you a nice breakfast on order , or you can go across the street to Gringo Curt , and enjoy big plates of the best food you will find in Costa Rica for lunch or dinner, while watching birds passing by ....

You can't miss it. Lodging is nice even if you in for budget option like we did but what is the best about this place are the owners. Johny and his wife are amazing and very friendly. Meeting local people makes the difference and shows you the pura vida.

Everything you wish for in a place like this - great view, nice clean rooms, adequate kitchen, the owners are lovely and very welcoming, and for a good price as well! It was too bad we only had time for one night, could have stayed longer and just enjoy the bay.

This place is a gem. It's quiet, clean, comfortable and has amazing views. Scarlet Macaws live in the trees above the cabins, as well as toucans and beautiful iguanas. The owner is a really sweet guy who runs the place with his family and will do whatever he can to make you comfortable. If you're Spanish isn't so good, the owner speaks plenty of English to help you with anything you need help with during your stay. Hope you can make it out. Drake Bay is an amazing place!

Our stay at Cabinas Jade Mar was a truly lovely experience. The cabin was darling & efficient with a can't be beat location. Macaws & iguanas passed though the lush foliage surroundings & the host was most helpful planning tours & taking care of our needs. Jade Mar is close to local eateries, visitor centers & mini-marts as well as breath-taking beaches, amazing jungle hiking, animal experiences & top rate adventure tours. Go to Drake Bay & stay at Cabinas Jade Mar. It can't be beat.

Room Tip: The cabins are unbelievably darling. It was a perfect jungle getaway!
