I have been traveling all over Costa Rica and staying in all types of lodgings, but this was by far my favorite. The staff was WONDERFUL and more than happy to help and go overboard in every way shape and form. The included breakfast was phenomenal and they catered to our every need. The owner of the hotel drove us...

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Particularly we loved the calm and sunny essence of Stephany who always started our day with her beautiful smile at the breakfast restaurant! We had great conversations with the staff and the owner Victor who told honestly and certainly interestingly about the way of life in Costa Rica as we were at the...

This hotel has everything you need. The rooms are comfortable and the service is spectacular! My room had a kitchenette for convenience too. We were just across the way from the beach and restaurants and other sites right there. Every morning they had my coffee ready as I am an early riser. Breakfast was included and it was delicious and...

We only stayed here one night. Everything was adequate for our family of four. Kids ages 16 and 12. In our room there were three beds, good A/C, cable TV, small kitchenette and decent sized bathroom. Staff were helpful to offer up suggestions for dinner. Breakfast included fit the bill. They had a nice pool, small play set and a...

We loved this place. Older hotel with a vintage feel but nice pools and courtyard right in Jaco. Some long time expats I talked to said the same. 0ne of the better choices in Jaco if you don't need an ocean view or completely modern appointments.

There were few guests, so the attention was top notch. The hotel is investing constantly to improve guest satisfaction. I was shown a totally renovated room and "waw" that's a 5-star improvement! I was told that a few others were being completed before long.

We recently stayed at the Mar de Luz for a friend and family vacation. The location was perfect as was the owner and staff. A couple on our trip arranged a marriage in CostaRica beforehand. Victor, the owner, made all the necessary arrangements and allowed us to use his beautiful property in Playa Behuco for the wedding. Victor has always...
