“Great Location”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Mango Mar was a pleasant surprise on my trip to Costa Rica. It was actually the nicest place that my friend and I stayed at in Costa Rica. Located on the beach with it's own security gate to the beach; nice, clean swimming pool and 24 hour security, made Mango Mar the ideal location for us, within easy walking distance ot shopping and restuarants.
The rooms were very clean and quiet at night. As it was the low season we were able to negotiate the room price down to $55.00/night, a very reasonable price for value received. The continental breakfast was quite meager, consisting of fruit wedges and two slices of toast, with coffee and juice. If I ever return to Jaco, I will certainly stay at the Mango Mar.

Room Tip: Any room is a good choice, all have ocean view over looking a stunning court yard.

Stayed at the Mango Mar twice, once in July and again in Sept. It was low season and I was charged $60 U.S.D. Per night. The staff was great. Low season was quiet and serene. Can't wait
to go back. I has an issue with the Air Conditioner in Room 3 but was immediately relocated to room 4. Great Location!!!

I stayed at the Mango Mar a couple of times now and will return. It is right on the beach and a block from Jaco Centro with resturants and groceries close by 2 min walk and a casino right next door. The staff is awesome 24hr security

We has a part of 5 people staying in the 2 bedroom apartment for 4 nights at the end of May (2012) and everything was great. The staff was very nice, we had an amazing ocean view from our balcony, and breakfast was simple (fruit, toast, OJ, coffee) but satisfying and fresh. The room wasn't luxurious, but it was just what we needed with a little fridge 4 beds, and a bathroom!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit at Mango Mar from Jan. 25th to March 7th, 2012; this was our 6th trip back to Mango Mar and 7th to Jaco. Mango Mar, a little boutique hotel, is in the centre of Jaco and on the beach. The Manager, Marlene, was exceptionally helpful and all the staff are wonderful....they are like our family and home away from home. Although the hotel is a little older, it is clean and well maintained and they can't do enough for guests. We felt truely relaxed and spoiled there! We will be back!

Room Tip: All rooms are fairly spacious and all sleep at least 3 people; mostly 4. The rooms on the east side...

I stayed at Mango Mar for 7 nights with a group of friends looking to get away from the very noisy San Jose. The reason why we picked this hotel was mainly down to the location and was not disappointed in the slightest. Mango Mar is set in the heart of Jaco and right on the beach with its own private access meaning that you do not get lots of beach goers trundling through while you are sleeping or relaxing by the guitar shaped pool. The sunsets on Jaco are stunning and every evening locals would just sit on the beach and watch the sun go down.

All the rooms had a beach view but would recommend the 1st floor rooms mainly cause the view is better and also because you can leave the balcony door open and get a nice breeze coming through. The hotel was always clean and the staff, in particular the lovely Marlena were very friendly and attentive. On our last night at the Hotel Marlena even cooked a lovely dinner for us as a thank you which was a nice touch. There is always a security guard on patrol adding an extra feel of security. Tours can be booked though the main office and you can also use the hotels body boards ($5 for 1 hour $10 for the whole day) which we did on a few occasions and was so much fun but harder than it looks.

All in all this was a great stay and would defiantly consider staying here again.

Room Tip: Best rooms are on the 1st floor.
