It is a very nice place to stay, very well located. BUT...there is a sign when you enter saying something along the lines of "this is a family hotel, no prostitution and drugs are allowed". Great in principle, but it means that you'll be awaken by a number of kids playing, swimming and screaming in the swimming pool. I wish... More

It was part of a package deal with American Airlines A couple of block from the beach, very well located, almost the center of town. three swimming pools and a jacussi. Breakfast was included, it was OK. After 6 days though we could have eaten something a little more tasty. The owner who is Dutch was very nice and helpful.

The Hotel Mar de Luz is just off the main street; however we would have never found it had not some friendly man led us there in his car! That said, it was convenient to shops and restaurants. When we were there the staff, while very friendly and willing to help, spoke very little English. We checked into our room... More

My wife and I stayed at Mar De Luz for three nights. Aside from the nice grounds, big beds, great breakfast and friendly staff what made it so great is the owner Victor who adds a real personal touch. Victor went way out of his way to help my wife and I with an emergency. I've never had a stranger... More

We were booked in here for two nights as part of a tour. This being a beach town, I expected a lot of late night noise. I was pleasantly surprised there was none. The rooms did have air conditioning, most are equipped with a fridge, microwave and hot plate. The was a kitchen sink, that didn't work, and the bathroom... More

We usually stay at Best Western in Jaco because it is right on the beach. So I would say that while the Mar De Luz is very nice ( for Costa Rica ), We use this as a Great 2nd Family Option. If the beach access is not an issue then they are equal. You must know that Costa Rica... More
