Nice hotel with two pools and great staff. The breakfast was tasty and there were also a place to make barbecue if one wanted. The only thing that was not as pleasant was the dark road from the main road to the entrance of the hotel, but the area was very quiet so i never fealt unsafe.

Me, my wife and another guest stayed for a total of three nights inApril 2016. The hotel is very centrally situated in Jaco, but is calm and peaceful and set back from the road. The owner, Victor, clearly takes great pride and enjoyment in his work and takes the time to greet all his guests in the morning as he... More

We love staying in small B&Bs and hotels. It just makes you feel more a part of the country you're visiting. We've stayed here before and loved it and it still is our favorite hotel/B&B in the Jaco area. The style is Spanish colonial. It's a wonderful place for families. They have a kiddie pool, hot tub and two pools,... More

Nice hotel and great location. Just a quick walk to shopping and food. This hotel served breakfast which was great and had options. Short walk to beach. The rooms were spacious and clean. Pools and friendly staff.

Victor and his team have a great slice of heaven in Jaco. We were in room 23 which was a decent room (2 queen beds, microwave and small fridge). The location was great, just one block from main road where all the restaurants are and about three to the beach. Free breakfast was good too! We would definitely stay here... More

This hotel is in a great location and feels safe while there. The rooms are nice, but ants are a problem. Close walk to beach and amenities, but I did not feel all that safe after dark---that has nothing to do with the hotel. Food in the restaurant is fairly good. If you look closely, you will find iguanas on... More

The hotel is not far from the beach and many bars and restaurants, but still very quiet. The included breakfast was good, the staff extraordinary friendly and helpful! We would choose the hotel again anytime!

Wow, so I took three of my kids to Jaco for about a week in February. We live in London and I work for the airlines, so we wanted to see what Costa Rica had to offer. Jaco, in general, was touristy and expensive. This was the third night of hotels and I was looking for a cheaper hotel than... More

Hotel Mar de Luz is a quaint hotel with a wonderful staff. The rooms are no frills but large and very comfortable. Breakfast is included and the staff is super friendly and helpful. The hotel prides itself on being family friendly and this adds to the pleasant atmosphere.
