“Great family trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We came with our large extended family (my in-laws, 5 kids, sister-in-law with husband, wife and me). We stayed at one of the nice villas plus one regular room. The villas are a great place to stay at. They are near the beach and have everything. The place is very well kept, food is good and the bay, beach, surroundings are just gorgeous.
My son and I learned how to surf there, they have surf lessons and all of a sudden you are just surfing, great experience!
The small kids had a great time at the pool, while the older kids were at the beach from dusk till dawn.
The beach is a great beach for jogging or just walking. 5km long beach and very wide.
Jaco is only 45 minutes away from San Jose and the airport, and the road is a nice divided highway.
We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Costa Rica.

Room Tip: Cabañas by the yard.

Club Del Mar was a beautiful hotel set right along the beach! We stayed in the 2bd/2bath villa. The master bedroom had a spectacular view! Each morning we awoke to the sights and sounds of the Pacific Ocean, our room was less than 100 yards from the beach. The hotel is located on the south side of Jaco which allowed retreat from the busyness and noise the town offered. One of the best places we stayed in all of Costa Rica!!

Room Tip: Ask for room #15 or #13, they have the best location and views. We stayed in room 15.

We have been fortunate to stay at the Horel Club del Mar and even meet Phillip, the owner. Phillip demonstrated a kindness toward his staff and that was reflected to the clients.

The hotel is clean, the food is excellent, the rooms comfy.

Hotel del Mar is the ONLY place to stay in Jaco.

Cute place to stay! After staying the night before in another hotel, which was horrible, the Hotel Club del Mar helped us check back into paradise.

The staff was VERY friendly as was the hotel owner, Phil. He introduced himself and checked to ensure everything about our stay was perfect. The restaurant staff was great. The food was delish.

The pool was great. The hotel is right on the ocean, which made for some gorgeous photos.

The room was nice. Beds & pillows comfy. The a/c was GREAT! Our room had a balcony facing the pool and ocean. Loved that for sure.

The only three tiny drawbacks was the wi-fi was a little spotty in the room, the semi trucks could be heard on the road right outside the hotel (was able to sleep just fine-great, in fact), & the shower head was really high.

The hotel is adorable and I highly recommend. It sits right off the beaten path of Jaco, which I preferred. Staying in the heart of Jaco the night before was a nightmare. If I ever travel back to Jaco, I'd stay here again for sure.

We found this place by accident and they gave us a one bedroom condo with a beach view. The condo was beautiful and we stayed 3 nights and used it a base for Manuel Antonio. The unit had a kitchen and AC and fans and a king bed with a great ocean view. The only negatives were a small safe and no in room wifi.
It was a little out of town but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you are going to Jaco for the party scene though, a place in town might be a better option. We rented SUPs and surf boards and were able to both right in front of our hotel. The beach was gorgeous.
We did encounter some tiny little ants in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view.

After reading many reviews and warnings about travelling to Jaco, we researched and booked 2, 2 bedroom condos. We were right on the beach with nothing obstructing the Beautiful view. We were 2 families = 11. I was so excited to find a washer & dryer ( had been traveling 5 days already and it was needed. Resort in at the southern end. We felt very safe! Resort is very nice, staff is wonderful! Pool is big, they provide balls for volleyball, with net or water polo or....Breakfast was included. Great choice. We would return and highly recommend. Owner also comes around to ensure all is good!

Club del mar, Jaco, Costa Rica. Be aware that the two bedroom and two bath suite, #10 is very noisy because it is facing the highway . Also, the air conditioning is worthless because the windows only have screen and wooden slats. The layout is nice and the kitchen is ready for cooking. There is also a nice large washer/dryer. This particular unit needs updating!
