When one walks down the main street of the town of Jaco, Costa Rica, one can sense the confusion and the hustle and bustle of shoppers, bikers, buses, trucks, cars, taxes mopeds, motor cycles, pedestrians as well as dogs, iguanas, birds, all roaming and flying around, every which way. Then, within this town, one can come to a lovely refuge,... More

We stayed in the hotel eight nights, in the beginning of this September, and can not recollect any,- even miscellaneous - detail that would make us feel dissatisfied, or even discomfort. The staff, providing all the time, the maximum imaginable level of hospitality, was very welcoming, polite, extremely helpful in any needs we might have had during our vacation time,... More

We stayed at Mar de Luz two days ago. The location is quiet, in walking distance from the resort and its beach, and the room was comfortable with all necessary amenities for a pleasant stay. A well-kept garden surrounds the swimming pools with jacuzzi, all public areas are constantly kept clean by the staff. A friendly reception put us in... More

Perfect location just outside the centre of Jaco, everything you need is within walking distance. Especially the fresh juice bar on the corner of the main street. The hotel facilities aswell as the room were all nice and clean. The owner was very helpfull with any question and had some nice suggestions for activities and good restaurants in town. Choice...

Hotel is on a side street which gets you away from the hustle and bustle of Jaco, but leaves you within walking distance of the main street. The room we had was large with two queen beds (and bed drapes!) and a balcony overlooking the pool. Breakfast was a choice of four options (eggs, bacon, rice and beans, and something... More

We stayed one night but wish we had stayed the rest of our trip. This cozy hotel offers a very good environment for both families and couples. It is off the main road but close to it, which makes it very quiet and you can get everywhere without taking your car. The pool has a very good size and it's... More

This hotel is located close to all the action, but far enough off the main street to be quiet. It is an easy walk to the beach and plenty of shopping and restaurants. My room was cool, very quiet, clean, and had a hot shower. It had everything I wanted and more, including a small kitchenette. Very impressed! Would definitely... More

Stayed at a great small hotel in Jaco Beach. Breakfast was fantastic - eggs (made to order), bacon, fruit, coffee +,- and was included in the cost of the room. Hotel is about 1/4 mile from the beach, shopping, restaurants, and clubs. But since it is off the main road, the hotel is very quite. The hotel is family friendly... More

Place is good and quiet, perfect for families. No prostitutes and narcotics allowed. Near Jaco centrum, so all was close by walking. Breakfast nothing extra ordinary, but average. Helpful personnel. Big minus is that there was not any water in the room and fridge was warm.
