Hotel is need of some cosmetic and maintenance upgrading, otherwise in a good location right on the beach. Breakfast is good and you are a 5 min walk from all the restaurants and shops. Staff are friendly and helpfully. Suggest taking a ground floor room as when it rains it can be quite noisy on the tin roof!

I read the one star review and almost didn't stay here as I usually read the one star reviews and then the five-star reviews when making a decision. Decided to take a look at the hotel in person. I found the grounds to be well-maintained, excellent gardening, nice little guitar shaped pool, and the staff exceedingly friendly. The rooms I... More

friendly people , dated rooms, good breakfast but everything is old. for the price they charge in high season they could definately update the rooms. cant flush toilet paper is a definate downfall for me and the toilet is so close to the sink in the room i stayed (room 1) its difficult to take a comfortable dump.

This beautiful hotel, right at the beach side, is the perfect spot to relax, enjoy and come to rest. The staff is very helpful and kind and will do anything, to make your staying comfortable. The swimming pool, although not big, is clean and very relaxing.Notice the guitar shape of the pool! The garden is beautiful and well maintained. Iguanas... More

Hotel Mango Mar is located on the beach, hidden behind the casino. Our room is nice compared to the other places we checked out and roughly the same price. There is an AC, wifi (which barely reached our room, but very strong near the office), pool, and tv. The staff here was also very helpful to us. The receptionist allowed... More

This hotel is average regarding rooms, parking was terrible. It was located right on the beach however. The service for breakfast was very slow. We did have a little critter visit our room just a small crab that found its way in from the beach. The views are great if you get an upper level room.

My friend & I had been very pleased with all of the places we had stayed throughout our Costa Rica trip until we arrived at Hotel (use that word extremely loosely) Mango Mar. Not worth spending any money on this place. Awful, horrible, unsafe, fithy. The hotel sits at the end of the road next door to a casino directly... More

This is a cute hotel located in Jaco city center, right on the beach. The hotel is quiet, with a nice balcony great for reading and listening to the ocean. The breakfast was a lovely continental with toast, fresh fruit and coffee. What made my mother and I fall in love with the place...was its friendly staff. The lady in... More

Mango Mar was our "home away from home" for 8 weeks this year. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, the staff (like family), the location, accommodation and the cleanliness of our rooms and facilities. The rates offered to us as guests for many years was terrific! The Manager and owner were very accommodating to correct any concerns or issues. We... More
