Recent guest reviews

Stayed in a 2 bedroom condo and we loved it. The resort is off of the beaten path but has everything you need. Great staff and amenities. The pool and restaurant are awesome. Highly recommend this property.

The staff is extremely friendly, personable, and helpful. Philip the owner is a saint who provided laughter, wisdom, and knowledge. This was my first time and I will continue to come to this property for many years to come. If you a staff who makes you feel comfortable and like you are home then do not hesitate to book.

We stayed here for our first trip to costa. It is a hidden gem! Shhhhh!The people were so friendly, the food was excellent, the room was magnificent! The front desk staff, Rae & Eunice, treated us like family! It was so affordable too. The wait staff were great & the owner is really hands-on! I wish I could live there! Thanks to trip advisor, I'm going back for my anniversary in August!

I loved this place! It was clean and beautiful, inside and out. The location was great! Great staff. Great wildlife. I would recommend this place to anyone! Excellent food, great beach....I want to go back.

The staff was so great, the room was FANTASTIC! We want to eventually own one of them... We will be back! Also the Food and Drinks for FANTASTIC. The staff became friends, not just people working there around you!

We were brand new to Costa Rica and used Trip Advisor to try and find the type of place we would really appreciate. The hotel Club del Mar is at the far south end of the beach, (away from the commotion) which suited us fine. The beach is very nice (different, but nice). The property is a little hard to understand (do you have a beach view or not!) so we emailed the link on their website and got an immediate reply. They were very helpful in getting us very close to the beach in a one-bedroom condo. The truck traffic is quite noisy, but that isn't as loud as the bugs! We walked along the beach into town and had a nice experience there as well. If we ever head back to Costa Rica and Jaco, we'd be pleased visit this property yet again.

The 2 bed apartment we had was just lovely, it was large, well appointed and spotless. The ocean view was so nice. The hotel is not large but it has all the amenities you could ask for in a place that size. A nice pool, lovely views of beach, situated on the beach, friendly staff, a little spa with a very good masseur, a hotel shop and restaurant. The staff is very friendly and the food was great. We loved our experience here. The best part was the big apartment- it was really nice. The hotel is just a 5 minute drive into town- where the bars, restaurants, tour operators etc are, Would definitely go back and stay there!

I have been vacationing at Club Del Mar in Jaco, Costa Rica twice a year for 12 years and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The ownership and staff at the hotel are the most helpful and friendly ever, in a country where most people are friendly and helpful. It is a beautiful beachfront property so well maintained that it hasn't seem to age in a dozen years. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is very relaxed, and the outdoor activities are many; just ask any of the staff for suggestions. There are places to stay in Jaco much bigger and much more expensive, and though I have the means, I would never stay anywhere else. Pura Vida

I've been coming to Club Del Mar for 12 years. Though not a 5 star resort it is by far the best value in Jaco. We stayed in large 2 bedroom condo. Always clean and comfortable. Washer and dryer in each room comes in handy. The hotel is located on the southern end of Jaco beach and has a very nice pool surrounded by the complex. The food served at the hotel has steadily improved since our first visit. Chicken fajitas by the pool were excellent. What makes the hotel so relaxing are the people working there. Headed by the proprietor Senor Phil they are always friendly and ready to help with any request. Senor Phil obviously strives the keep he property in excellent condition. Highly recommend if staying in Jaco.

We spent four days at Hotel Club del Mar. It was charming and we loved everything about it. It is an excellent value. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They have AC in the rooms, which we used frequently. Our room in the main building had a relaxing balcony with a nice pool and ocean view. The sunsets were amazing. The condos are closer to the beach and are newer, but for a family of three, we were content with our room with two queen beds. We did not use bug spray, and we were not bitten by mosquitoes or any other insects - this might be the dry season? Jaco is not a high-end resort town; it seems more like a local beach town frequented by both Costa Ricans and foreign visitors. This was preferable for us, rather than an isolated resort like the nearby Marriott. Jaco Beach is beautiful, and the water is warm. Hotel Club del Mar is at the south end of the long beach, and is about a mile from the main town area where shops and restaurants are. The walk to town on the beach is perfect (during the day wear shoes - the dark sand gets hot). This small resort is near the main road, and also near a hillside that has a seemingly large cicada community. We never saw a cicada, but we sure heard them. I suggest bringing ear plugs for bed time. Large trucks can be loud applying their brakes on the road, and the cicadas make a symphony of whistling early in the morning. I was able to sleep through both with earplugs. My children had no problem sleeping through it all with no ear plugs after the long days playing in the waves and the pool, and taking excursions around Jaco. They loved the pool, and found new friends every day to play with. This was an excellent location from which to take a day tour to Manual Antonio, and a kayak and snorkeling excursion at nearby Playa Agujas (BIG shout out to the great folks at Kayak Jaco, Kenny and Johann - they are amazing! We also had a brilliant tour guide at Manuel Antonio - Andre with Tukan Tours - ask for him specifically! So impressed with his knowledge, passion for nature, and patience with children). The staff and owner at Hotel Club del Mar are wonderful. Everyone is helpful and kind, and they are not overbearing or obsequious. They all made us feel right at home. The front desk team was great at arranging tours for us, and answering all the questions we came up with. The hotel also has a couple of resident iguanas that cruise around the property. But even they are low key, and only made a couple of short friendly appearances near the pool before creeping off to the bushes. If you want a luxury hotel, this is not it. If you want to meet real people and stay in a comfortable and very clean hotel on a beautiful beach, Hotel Club del Mar is absolutely perfect.

250 Meter South of Jaco Puntarenas
