We were a party of 2 Adults. Our visit was in August 2018.
First impressions were excellent – gracious reception, bags whisked off to our room – which was not quite ready. Jason, the customer service manager, took the opportunity to give us a tour of the property, which ended at the tiki bar with a complimentary drink. Jason is absolutely charming, welcoming and efficient.

When we gained access to our unit, we were blown away. Accommodation was excellent and the views were stunning – white crashing waves, blue ocean and mountains off in the distance. The master bedroom view of the ocean was memorable and will be missed greatly when Susan returns to her little bungalow in metro Detroit:) The balconey was a great place to snack and read while taking in the poolside entertainment.

Now to the beach – Joe said that the location, beyond any question, the best stretch of beach on Jaco bay. No stones in the sand, waves high enough to have some fun, water temps perfection. Walk along the beach to Jaco town center was great. Acres of beach with very few people.

From the complex, we enjoyed the hikes up the hill opposite the beach. A nice climb with a payoff of a good work out and beautiful views.
The Club del Mar staff was excellent. Wait Staff, Tom, Jason, reception….room service….all great to work with.
When back in Costa Rica – this will be an absolute, nailed down, must do – revisit!

Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven with us.

Room tip: We stayed in Unit #9

My wife & I had the lunch special last week - chicken sandwich! Boy! Was it fresh & very delicious!! Great fries as well!
Nice view over pool area to the ocean! Very nice, relaxing lunch!
Apparently there is a resident sloth, but we could not locate him. We did, however, find a very large iguana in a tree!! Big guy!!!
Pura Vida!!

I enjoy that sandwich as well! So sorry you couldn't find Sammy the Sloth! He checks in every few weeks & checks out 3 to 4 days later. When you return, we keep binoculars at the bar, just ask for them & we'll help you spot Sammy!
Pura Vida!

My 19 year old daughter and I stayed at Club Del Mar for four nights. During our stay the staff went out of their way to offer us suggestions/tips and coordinate activities and make our stay comfortable! The included breakfast was delicious and we loves the convenient surf lessons right at the hotel! My only suggestion would be to have someone offer to take a surf pic as that was impossible for us to do in the water when we were both having a lesson:-). We always felt safe and appreciated Tom, the manager'a suggestions on best times to see the wildlife, opt for Taxis and see the nearby sights. We"d definitely stay againn

Wonderful experience. Made you feel like it was a 5-star property. We stayed in a 2-2 oceanfront condo and it was wonderful. All of the employees were great - especially Justin the guest services manager. Food in the restaurant was excellent and very well priced. Beach was great, view was beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay.

Room tip: Ocean front upstairs room - great view.
