We usually stay at Best Western in Jaco because it is right on the beach. So I would say that while the Mar De Luz is very nice ( for Costa Rica ), We use this as a Great 2nd Family Option. If the beach access is not an issue then they are equal. You must know that Costa Rica...

We liked this place- best of all it has two swimming pools+ baby pool, and games, all surrounded by green plants, flowers, butterflies, littl dogs of the owner. Veru friendly atmosphere, walking distance to the central street with restaurants. Helpful to have A/C at night, and a small kitchen with a fridge. Although I would recommend to use safety box...

The hotel was good for the cost. The staff was nice and helpful. The room was old, the bed was small, old A/C, blender, shower and toilet. The free breakfast was great. The hotel has a play lot and cookout area for the kids to eat.

Stayed here for ten days, looking for somewhere to chill out. Mar De Luz was the perfect location. It is not on the main road of Jaco, just off it. This means it is a bit quieter but you are still in the thick of it. The perfect location! Staff are beyond friendly and helpful, especially Alex. They helped us...

Stayed for 2 nights with a group of 26 students with EF Tours. Highlights were the pools, easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants in Jaco, and the large open-air TV lounge where many of the kids gathered at night to discuss the day's events. Meals were included in our stay and we enjoyed authentic Costa Rican fare as well...
