Hotel Mar De Luz provides an exceptional atomsphere and family friendly culture that makes it stand out against most options in the Jaco area.

Large, clean rooms with full kitchen amenities. Air conditioned, private, and easily accessible to the beach and all the town's attractions. Owner, Victor,...

The room was really not what we thought from photos. Our shower did not have a shower head and it was like a hose instead. There was hair and dirty spots on our sheets. There were ants in a lot of the places we stayed in Costa Rica, but here they attacked all of my things! I will say though...

I travel to costa rica at least once a year, and always make a point of staying awhile at the Mar de Luz in Jaco. The rooms are more interesting than standard hotel cubicles, Victor (the owner) and Yvwette (the manager) are gracious and accomodating. The hotel is within walking distance of any place in Jaco, and within day trip...

This hotel has two pools and a baby pool set in a lovely garden. Breakfast was excellent - there were a number of combinations to choose from. Our room was big and had a seating area, microwave, fridge and coffee maker. Hotel staff were friendly and welcoming.

We enjoyed our stay at Mar de Luz. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The kids enjoyed the pool and trampoline. We were able to relax poolside or on the balcony of our room.
