Hotel Mar de Luz

C. Mar de Luz, behind Subway, east of Avda. Pastor Díaz, Jacó, Puntarenas, 61101, Costa Rica

A few blocks from the beach, this family-focused property boasts three swimming pools, equipped kitchens, and comfortable rooms of varying size and style. Bright, pastel-hue standard rooms have two queen-size beds and most have kitchenettes; top-floor rooms have a small living room with checkered sofas and a double bed; the cozy split-level rooms with kitchenettes and stone walls are reminiscent of European bed-and-breakfasts. The Dutch owner is dedicated to cleanliness and provides lots of amenities, such as poolside grills, a kids' game room, communal computers, a playground, a large open-air reading lounge, and inexpensive tours. Avoid noisy Unit 12, which is next to the maintenance area. If you don't mind the climb, request an upstairs room with a balcony overlooking the pool.
