Found this hotel by accident. Originally was booked at another site, which we had to leave because of ants. Luckily we found this hotel which turned out to be a great little gem. The staff and owner are very accommodating. The rooms are large enough and ours included an efficiency suitable for cooking if that's what you want. There is...

I stayed two nights at Hotel Mar de Luz (March 6th and 7th) and had an amazing time. The staff are absolutely wonderful, friendly and helpful. The hotel is located across the street from the beach and 2 minutes away from a grocery shop (there is a little plaza on the left by KFC), shops and restaurants. Everything you need...

Hotel Mar de Luz is a very nice respite from the craziness of Jaco. We stayed here one night on our way south and chose to stay again 2 weeks later on our way back to the airport. The rooms are spacious and clean, the beds comfortable. Dominic (and the rest of the staff) was welcoming and gracious. The breakfast...

Wow, we are glad we chose Hotel Mar de Luz to stay at. The breakfast is great, with multiple choices on the menu. The location is not far from the main street of activities, but far enough away for peace and quiet, to relax by the pool or on the internet. The Owners Victor, Janet - Victor's wife, and Anneke...
