Enjoy this 17 cabana eco-boutique hotel, situated on the secluded San Jose Island. Each cabana has its own balcony, offering breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. The triple cabin gives visitors a view of the canopy of the forest.

Hacienda Del Mar’s clubhouse is built 75 feet above the Pacific Ocean upon a majestic point with picturesque ocean and beach views at every turn. It features a full restaurant, serving delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners – including local tropical fruits and fresh seafood. In fact, fish, crab, and lobster are caught just off the island daily. The views of the “Three Monks” – a set of three spectacular rock formations located half a mile from the resort in the Pacific Ocean, are fantastic. Additionally, humpback whales can often be seen right from the clubhouse, pool, and beach as well.

Hacienda Del Mar sits on private island with no native human population, it has been unspoiled due to the restriction of all hunting for many years. There is a population of over 3,000 wild pigs, large quantities of deer, black and green iguanas, agoutis, parrot and giant pigeons. In fact, there are over 100 species of birds on San Jose Island and neighboring waters. The beaches are used by many sea turtles for the purpose of nesting and lying of their eggs.
