We paid $275 per night per couple during the New Year 2007 week and had the following experience: The resort had a beautiful and unusual fire work on New Years Eve. But otherwise the stay was unpleasant. There were lots of biting insects around. Despite spraying the room with insecticide we woke up every morning with more insect bites than... More

Just back from five wonderful nights at Mar de Jade. Balm for the soul. From the moment we arrived, the owner, energetic and beautiful Laura de Valle made us very welcome. We couldn't believe our luck to find such an understated but stunning place , nestled between the tropical jungle and a long stretch of sandy (and rocky) beach. It... More

I only stayed at Mar de Jade for three days at the end of December, but I was able to quickly identify the property's best attribute -- it's warmth and spirit. The rooms that I saw, including the one I stayed in, are pretty basic and the food somewhat inconsistent, but it doesn't really matter. It's the beautiful beach, the... More

My wife and I just got back from a 5-night stay at the Mar de Jade and would like to share our experiences and give more details than the other reviews. In short, it is truly a special place. Located about 90 minutes from the airport (they personally called to check on our transportation plans), the Mar de Jade is... More

My Mar de Jade experience was profound. From the time I arrived until my departure I was enthralled with the lush tropical scenery, the beach, the facilities and most of all the outstanding service! The rooms were huge and well worth the $200. rate, but with meals included, it was the deal of a lifetime. Feasts of abundant healthy foods—... More

Just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay at Mar de Jade...we went with a group of medical students and doctors, but would also be great just for vacation with family or for couples. The food, three enormous buffets a day, is fresh, healthy, and varied. They use only bottled water to cook---in a group of almost 30 of us,... More

A VACATION THAT SERVES A SOCIAL PURPOSE My wife and I just came back from an incredibly wonderful vacation on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, and we want to tell you about it. The resort of Mar de Jade is located on Playa Chacala, about an hour and one half north of Puerto Vallarta. We first read about it in... More

For over $200 per night per room, we had expected the services to be as advertised, however, we were surprised to find very poor service, no sign of spa services at all, a very poor yoga class, and a quite careless attitude towards the guests. Some other guests during our stay actually left in disgust, and rightly so. It seems... More

Mar de Jade ("Sea of Jade") is a real gem on the west coast of Mexico, about 90 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. What a wonderful time we had there. This retreat shares the small bay with the village of Chacala. There are no high rise hotels, no parasailing, and no vendors to interrupt your quiet on the beach. This... More
