Had a great stay. Owner/manager Victor was bery friendly. He went table to table each morning at breakfast to check-in with each guest to see how their stay was. Food was good. Staff was also very attentive. Made sure all my needs were met. 5 out of 5

Relaxing Spot in Busy Jaco
We checked in early & they were able to accommodate us. Lots of wildlife, very relaxing atmosphere, very friendly staff! They are willing and able to help book trips. Pool was nice, but not a hot tub (didn't matter just saying). Comfortable lounge chairs & pool/pool area was very clean. Room was cleaned daily, AC worked great & it had a fridge! Breakfast was amazing, easy walk to a lot of options but off the Main Street so VERY quiet. And very good value for the price. Would highly recommend and if we return we will return here.

8/10 Very good

The room was quirky-cute, clean, and comfortable. They staff were all very friendly and helpful. They helped me secure transport from and to SJO. The property is quiet and beautiful. I saw Macaws, iguanas, and a sweet kitty. It’s close to the main street and the beach. Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The breakfasts were good (I’m not much of a foodie). My only minor issues were the occasional bug in the room, one morning the a/c got a bit icy, and the shower splashed out well into the bathroom. The pools are refreshingly cool. I only used the refrigerator in the kitchenette area to keep a few bottled drinks cold. The shower was nice and relaxing. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay. I picked Hotel Mar de Luz on a whim and ended up very pleased.

El diseño del baño me parece sin sentido, a la hora que uno se baña se moja por todo el lugar ya que no cuenta con cortinas o puerta.
