Wonderful Vacation Club del Mar is the Best!
Posted Oct 18, 2016
We scheduled the hotel to pick us up at airport. It was so nice to get off a long plane ride and see someone holding a card with your name on it. From SJO to Jaco was in a comfortable Mercedes van with cold water and beer waiting for us. Once we got to Club del Mar, it could not have been any better. The food at restaurant was great, drinks at poolside were cool and refreshing. Every person we met was helpful and kind. I don't want to name them because I would be afraid I would leave someone out. Bartenders, front desk to the maids were a joy. Phil was very friendly, and you feel like a special guest in his home.
The hotel planned our excursions, and they took care of everything. Try zip lining, it is amazing! The Manuel Antonio Park is so full of animals, We saw monkeys, sloths, birds, crickets, crabs, and the food before and after the tour was delicious! (The beach is white sands and crystal clear water)
Walking to Jaco is a nice walk on beach. We probably went everyday. Los Amigos has craft beer and we watched football and baseball there.If you walk along beach and take first road you will run into Gecko's Bar. Very small, but very friendly.The walk past Gecko's in to town, we would see toucans in the trees.
Macaws fly over the property every morning and evening. This was truly a tropical vacation. We loved it so much,we are already planning a trip back after Christmas.
We stayed in 200, perfect view of water, pool, and we had fun watching iguanas, birds and squirrels play
