2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

When I first reserved by phone, I only reserved 4 nights out of my planned 3 weeks vacation. I ended up staying the whole 3 weeks there. This is the best place if you want to stay in family atmosphere away from the noise but close to everything walking distance. Jaco is small so it`s very easy to walk everywhere. Their location is perfect, as I could reach all the restaurants and bars within 5 minutes. I walked barefoot with my surf every day to the beach and it would take me 5 mins. All their staff were amazingly nice and friendly with me, from the front desk to the cleaning ladies my man Antonio, who always came and chat with me during my breakfast. The owner, Victor, always made sure that all my needs were covered and is a sweet man that cares for his employees and customers. I'll definitely stay there next time I go to Jaco. Thanks to the team to make my stay an unforgiving moment.

The staff was super friendly, I absolutely loved my stay here. The guy at the front desk was very nice and very helpful. The hotel facilities are great. The pool was big and clean and the room were spacious and very comfy beds. The AC made a funky noise all night but aside from that our room was perfect. Breakfast is big which made me very happy!

Owner goes out of his way to help his guests. The room needs updating, too much furniture, stained/moldy ceiling tile, squeaky bed. Nicely laid out property with two pools and complimentary breakfast is served rather than buffet style. Friendly staff. Don’t miss the ATV adventure that’s available at the end of the street…it’s what made our stay here that much better.

With a friend we stayed at the hotel Mar de Luz, where I had already spent several times on previous occasions. The place was pretty full, so we spent the night in one of their apartments. Never slept so well!! There is a pool attached, but we used the ones of the hotel. Particularly the young ones prefer the friendly atmosphere and the hotel's staff is very attentive. We had a good breakfast (various choices) and for meals there are plenty of varied eating opportunities in walking distance from the hotel.

Stayed in Hotel Mar se Luz in jaco for a few days and everything was excellent. Our room with a full kitchen was very practical and useful. Bed, shower, all looked new and is an excellent value for the money. If in Jaco, especially traveling with a family, choose Hotel Mar De Luz. Finally, the owner and his lovely wife,greets you every morning during breakfast. A great, personal touch!

Great time, people, location, food, facility, price and service. We recommend this hotel to all who go to Jaco. We spent 6 nights and had a great time😊😊😊 great place at a great price and the owner as well as his staff are there to make sure of that happening

This is my second stay at this family oriented hotel. Wonderful staff, safe, and delicious breakfast lead me back to this hotel. This is a perfect home base for scheduling day trips and adventures into the beautiful Costa Rican countryside.

Stayed here for two nights. The place is dated but the rooms are spacious and comfy. Gear towards families. Owner lives in premises. Lots of places for the families to hang out. No bar no beach towels. You can walk to the beach. It is about a bock and half. The place is located off the main road in a quite residential street. You can walk to restaurants and even the mall.

I Stayed with my family in the first days of april, 2017. The place looks clean and the personnel was extremeley friendly and kind to us. The pools are very nice, my son and my niece enjoyed a lot there. The room was a little bit outdated but comfortable, with T.V and a little fridge, kitchen and utensils in case you want to prepare your own food and save some money. We paid a little extra to have breakfast included and the breakfast had options for costarrican typical food as well as fruits and pancakes and toasts, it was all very tasty, we were satisfed with it. If you did not pay extra to include the breakfast you can pay for it there, the prices are very reasonable. The location of the hotel is a few meters Away from jaco's main street which is One block away from the beach (aproximately 100 meters from the beach). The location is almost at the center of jaco's main street which is very convenient to take a walk looking for shopping, tours, restaurants or a gelato (my personal way of sin). I can say that I would definitely return!.

My husband and I spent 18 nights at this hotel and feel we made the best choice. It is close to the main street of Jaco and less than a 10 minute walk to the beach. We always felt safe. The staff at the hotel were exceptional and made us feel like we were special guests. The hotel is set up for families and people who don't want a big wild hotel. The rooms were comfortable and even though we never felt the need to request a different bed, we saw the staff moving mattresses so we realized they were willing to do whatever it took to make the guests comfortable. Our room was perfect for our vacation, with a full fridge and consistent air conditioning. We enjoyed the made to order breakfasts and still miss the pancakes. We were never bored in Jaco and had our regular spots by the end of our 18 days in wonderful Jaco,Costo Rica, This hotel is an excellent value.
