I was invited by a friend to join her yoga group from California for a week at Mar De Jade. The setting is a tropical oasis along a beautiful beach. The staff was efficient, friendly, and helpful. The food was served buffet style 3 times a day and is a delicious mix of organic fruits and vegetables, fish, shrimp, chicken,... More

Mare de Jade was in a beautiful setting, great food, and lovely services. Enjoyed walking up the beach into town and the massage services. Really excellent stay and I would recommend to anyone hoping for some out-of-the-way luxury.

Mar de Jade offers a great escape from life in big, noisy cities with warm cabins, a spectacular view of the Pacific ocean, massage and Yoga classes. If I have to praise something about this hotel is the food. It's just amazing. It's 95% vegetarian but you will never get bored with their buffet as they always try something new... More

Went to Mar de Jade for a family vacation just before Christmas this year. What a wonderful time! This hotel does everything right. Our room was large and comfortable. The food was fresh and delicious. And it is right next to Chacala beach - which offers a different vibe only a 10 minute walk away. It is nice to have... More

It's not easy to bring together family to have a reunion, so you want to be sure that you've got the right place when the opportunity does arise. We hit the jackpot with Mar de Jade. It met the needs of all of us from the nearly one year old, who couldn't get enough of the pool and the easy... More

We recently had a small family reunion -- 12 of us -- at Mar de Jade. Delightful! Swimming in the warm Pacific was a treat for my New England acclimated body. The food was fresh, varied, and delicious, with an emphasis on plenty of vegetables and fresh seafood. Our rooms were spacious, with views of the beach and the sound... More

We had a great time at Mar de Jade. The room big,clean and no TV. We left the balcony door open at night to hear the ocean and the breeze was cool. The meals are wonderful, gluton free or vegetarian if you need it. We were ask about our dietary concerns when we checked in. Definitely We will go back.

I was so looking forward to this trip but unfortunately I booked it in what seemed to be an off week at Mar de Jade. There were several things that failed during my travel. First of all I was there for Thanksgiving and the hotel had very low occupancy and many off the services were not being offered. The food... More

The location of the hotel is magic, with some great white beaches around the corner. The rooms are modest, and the common area for eating and lounging is inviting. We came to learn about yoga and meditation, local trips and to be pampered with a massage. The meditation was DIY, the yoga was led by an instructor. As "the" masseuse... More
