“What a wonderful spot in the world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2005

My husband and I stayed at this hotel several times over the last couple of years and we love it more everytime we are there. The setting is beautiful, the gardens lovely and the location on the beach is very private.
The staff at the hotel go out of the way to make your stay enjoyable and Phillip, the owner, is a wonderful host and storyteller.
We always meet interesting people staying there and some we have stayed in touch with after we returned to the states.
Great fun, wonderful place!

This boutigue hotel is aptly named...a delightful club-like atmosphere permeates the entire place. The rooms/suites are capacious, the pool is enticing, the grounds are immaculate, and the oceanfront setting is beautific - "muy tranquillo". The lobby bar and restaurant serve surprisingly affordable superb food in a delightful informal way.

If that's enough for you, the staff ( from top to bottom) goes out of their way to assure a wonderful stay..they are your friends and family here in Costa Rica! ( Watch out or the often on-site owner will keep you up until the wee hours with good cheer and conversation).

There's a reason why Hotel Club del Mar becomes sold out at high season, but caution: if you are looking for a sprawling resort this is not the place for you-(try Los Suenos). If however you want to be captivated by an intimate gem of a vacation spot, as I obviously was, then give it a try.

This hotel was just okay. My husband and I spent our first three nights at Villa Caletas so any other hotel after that would've been a disappointment. The room was small, but that wasn't the problem... I think the mattress had "bed bugs." At the other hotel, not once did I scratch. But from the moment I laid down on the mattress at Club Del Mar, I had an itch. Other than that, the room appeared clean. The staff was very friendly. Dinner in the restaurant and drinks at the bar were decent (in taste and price). We spoke with the owner of the hotel twice during our stay and we only stayed there three nights. The pool is averaged. If you don't want to spend alot of money and don't plan on spending alot of time in the hotel, this place is fine. If you're looking for a resort, this isn't the place for you. But in the end, this is probably one of the better hotels on Jaco Beach.
