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

This is perfect location in Jaco, right on the beach and one minute walk to main drag. We didn't like Jaco the town itself but this is definitely the best place to stay in Jaco. The hotel we booked originally we left because it was in a bad location and felt unsafe, we got a cab to the beach and... More

I was just down in jaco for a surf competition and stayed here. It was in the perfect location right on the beach. It was still close to town, just a block from the center but also quiet. I was very happy to hear the ocean at night and not the clubs. The staff is super friendly and the place... More

This is a small 14 room motel with a great location. If you go out the back gate you are on the beach and the front, you are a block away from the main street of Jaco. You are centrally located, so everything is very walkable. The motel could use some updating but if you are looking for a bargain... More

We stayed at the Mango Mar for the weekend in November 2013, we had an ok time but I have to say the Photo's on the hotels website are extremely flattering.. Our room was large with OK beds, but full of ants.. The front door was badly fitting and gaps all around where insects could crawl through. The locks were... More

Mango Mar was a pleasant surprise on my trip to Costa Rica. It was actually the nicest place that my friend and I stayed at in Costa Rica. Located on the beach with it's own security gate to the beach; nice, clean swimming pool and 24 hour security, made Mango Mar the ideal location for us, within easy walking distance... More
