Nothing luxurious but a cute little beachfront hotel in a garden setting with pool (in the shadow of the larger, sleazy Hotel Cocal). Simple rooms but a great value. Each room has a balcony or terrace with nice ocean and sunset view. Order the pancakes at breakfast (included) instead of the continental which is just toast. There's nothing the hotel... More

This hotel is great value for the price. Right on the beach and if you get a room on the second floor you can see the ocean. It is older but well maintained and includes a breakfast ( tastless toast, fresh fruit plus juice and coffee). There is parking at the back and a night watchman. The gate to the... More

If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay with beach front and close to everything in Jaco, this is the place to go. My husband and I have stayed at Mango Mar several times and we continue going for it's value. It is inexpensive, beach front, clean, the staff is very helpful and friendly and it's at walking...

The pool is shaped like a guitar. I will give them that. The place needs to be renovated. My gf and I went for one night after our transfer from arenal to manuel antonio was deferred because of rain. The staff was more then helpful and bent over backward to help. The room felt like a 1984 vibe with no... More

You can't beat the location right on the beach and the staff is well-meaning. However, this hotel has seen better days. It hasn't been upgraded since I visited 5 years ago and is showing its age in a way that isn't reflected in the pricing of its rooms. The main issue is security. The locks on the doors are flimsy...

It rained most of the time we were in Costa Rica and had it not been for the nice accommodations, we would have gone crazy. The room was large and very clean. The beds were comfortable. The patio facing the ocean and pool was nice for watching the rain. While the pool is small, it is kept immaculate and has... More

while hidden behind the more famous Cocal this was a great place to stay --clean, owners friendly & willing to happily provide extras e.g. towels, coffee, directions, etc. It didnt cost a fortune to hear the ocean waves roll in each & every night & have a great ocean view --i'd stay again in a heartbeat. Also, fabulous location on... More

We found the Hotel by chance and we liked it at first sight. It is located ocean front. The pool and the garden is small, but the view from the upstairs apartments over the ocean is great. The apartment had two rooms and balcony and was clean and cozy. Just in front you find the sandy beach of Jaco.

Mango Mar staff is incredible. Very accommodating and honest. I shopped around for a hotel or condo on the beach and Mango Mar offered the best value and clearly spelled out a couple of issues with the room before I committed. There was a minor issue with the wifi and they moved it for better reception. Everything was casual and... More

Mango Mar is the perfect location in Jaco. RIGHT on the beach-- there is a private entrance from the hotel onto the beach. Close to restaurants and bars. Taco Bar and Rioasis are nearby restaurants worth trying. The rooms were fine--nothing special. But for the money, it was about right. The free breakfast is not much. Most mornings we got... More
