I booked this place for one night and ended up staying three. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and most spoke English. I also ate at the restaurant and I definitely have to say the food was the best in town as well. I have stayed in many hotels in Golfito and this has the best "vacation" feel for... More

We were doing some shopping in Golfito duty free. The hotel has some big rooms for families, totally equipped. Experience was good, but a little expensive if your thinking to go for a economic shopping ride. The hotel has a beautiful view to the Golfito's estero and a nice restaurant. Service was acceptably.

We spent one night here and enjoyed both dinner and breakfast in the hotel's open air restaurant and bar. The team was incredible, so kind and so helpful. We are traveling by motorcycle and arrived just ahead of a rainstorm. We checked into and unloaded our gear at our room and then the employees moved their own motorcycles from a... More

I am only reviewing it as a restaurant. We had a very relaxing time on the terrace, enjoying tapas and cold beverages. The menu is very classic (docked one star), the ceviche is excellent, the staff is very friendly, the food takes a while to come even if there is not much of a press. The surroundings are picturesque. The... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Mar y Luna for a shopping trip in the duty free port of Golfito. Once again, Mar y Luna did not disappoint. The service is outstanding, the restaurant offers good food. We like rooms 13 & 14 with the kitchenettes. The A/C really keeps the room cool. The rooms are well... More

Right on the bay with totally relaxing decks and a bar / restaurant with open air views. Rooms are spacious and the A/C blows cold. Some rooms with kitchenette. Great and secure place for Duty Free shopping. Good food. All the staff we encountered spoke excellent English.

We like to stay at Mar y Luna on a regular basis - it's a happening little laid back hotel right on the water in Golfito. The ambiance has local flare, and there are always lots of folks milling around and enjoying the fresh seafood, cold beer and good company at the restaurant. If you have a chance to take... More

We traveled to Golfito with Costa Rican friends to do some shopping in Golfito's Duty Free Zone and stay at Mar y Luna for 2 nights. This was a pleasant place to stay for the required overnighter. The room was clean with A/C, a comfortable bed and a nice kitchenette with table and chairs. We didn't do any cooking while... More

We have stayed here several times. Our favorite room, is RM 11 which is a suite with kitchen. Two double beds, a nice bathroom, and a deck out the door to enjoy the water views and sunset. Rooms are clean, the AC is cold, and a very good value. Breakfast is included, but very simple. Go down the street to... More
