People looking for comfort, good service and peace and quiet at the beach away from the city, favor this hotel over other hotels in Jaco. Monterey del Mar is known as a very clean hotel run by an alert staff that will make you feel like a celebrity guest in Costa Rica. Rooms have plenty of space, the diner shares the area with a bar, a pool table, live entertainment and dancing. Free breakfast and home-made meals are full of flavor and served in a dining area facing a spectacular ocean view. Cozy hammocks catch the breeze of the hummingbirds' wings flying from one garden flower to another. Patrons claim to spot more birds, monkeys, lizards and other wildlife here than at parks they've been to.

Monterey Del Mar is happy to welcome you!

Monterey del Mar Hotel and Restaurant is a special beach front resort in Esterillos between Jaco and Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. At low tide Esterillos becomes a wide and never-ending beach of beautiful, dark volcanic sands and green trees. Few can account to such vivid romantic sunsets as the day's end displays a pallet of fiery tones that fall on deserted scenery.

Feel free to contact us anytime in case you have any questions or concerns.
