I stayed at the Hotel Club del Mar. The rooms were clean, restaurant food was yummy and the hotel was right on the beach. The pool was nice and the staff was friendly. It definately was, in my opinion, a 3 star hotel. Not luxurious but definately not bad either. Just a comfortable, clean hotel with good food. It did... More

Stayed here in Feb with all my brothers, sisters and cousins. We are in our 50's but felt like teenagers, very active.This was our favorite stop while visiting Costa Rica. Ask for rooms right by the ocean, #13,14,15,16 if possible. The beach has great waves, plenty of beach chairs, pool, outside bar and great view.The two bedroom units are very... More

We had a wonderful time at Club del Mar. It's right on the ocean, the rooms are spacious and beautiful and the pool is just heavenly. The owner is friendly and accomodating. He cares for his guests like family while at the hotel. Great food and drinks at the restaurant. (I recommend the mango daiquiri.) If you want a place... More

We liked this hotel because it's outside the 'main drag' of Jaco Beach, which is a bit busy and touristy. It's a quick drive into "town" for dinner though. It's located right on the beach and you can see a great sunset. The pool is big, clean and there are nice lounge chairs. The hotel's restaurant is decent and the... More

Great place away from the crazy little downtown area. Nice townhouses and okay rooms. Stay in a townhouse if you are traveling with others. Nice pool and macaws fly over on their way home to Carerra Park, a refuge site. Went birdwatching there. Best for couples and families who want a quiet place. Bad mosquito issues at night. Wear repellent!

This was our third time as a couple (traveling with another couple) to enjoy the atmosphere that is uniquely Club del Mar. We were returning after a five year hiatus and were greeted by familiar staff that recognized us and welcomed us warmly! We've stayed in the hotel rooms previously; a condo by the pool this trip. Both accommodations are... More

The owner of this place is Phil, the dude has FORGOTTEN more about how to properly run a resort than most managers have ever learned. When you arrive, you are instantly made to feel a part of family, for lack of a better term. The long-tenured staff know their stuff to the last detail. First visit we made was in... More

jaco was our least favorite part of our week long trip down the central pacific coast. it reminded us a lot of the bad parts of mexico. that being said, hotel club del mar was probably the best hotel to stay at in the area because it is far away from the main drag. they offered surfing lessons and yoga...

I stayed here for 3 nights after 4 days of rain in other parts of Costa Rica. Gotta love the sunshine. My room was in the main building and despite being over the bar and beside the pool, noise was not an issue. As other reviews pointed out, there is a main road nearby and you can hear the grinding...

Mixed bag on this hotel. The room was noisy and front desk customer service was poor. But I really liked the ocean view and we had fun watching the large lizards run around the hotel grounds. It was easy to book a surfing lesson and the instructor taught me well. The pool, rooms, and property were very clean. The highway... More
