This hotel is right off the Main Street in Jaco CR. It is within walking distance to downtown and the beach. The grounds are nice and well kept.

The service was fantastic at this hotel. Matt was very helpful in booking a great excursion (ziplining), helping us find great local restaurants, and so forth. Everyone was very friendly on the staff and I was very happy with the cost. It is not super fancy or luxurious but it was a great fit for my travel needs and wants....

I usually travel on a very low budget and stay in hostels when travelling alone, but I decided I would treat myself when I saw the prices in Jaco -- my last stop before home -- were affordable. I chose Hotel Mar De Luz because of the slightly cheaper price, and they exceeded my expectations with the experience and the...

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.

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,...
