The apartment has 3 small bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a comfortably equipped kitchen and living area. there is a pleasant deck on the back with views of the forests. The property was very clean.

I've been going to Monteverde/Santa Elena for some time already and have stayed in affordable hotels (I always avoid the high-end ones as you are paying too much $$ for a room in which basically you are just going to sleep, as in Monteverde you are out of the hotel most part of the day). Anyway, I can say this... More

This B&B is located on the hill and a bit far from the public bus terminal. I dragged my luggage down the slope in dark and finally decided to call a cab. It's 10 minutes walking distance from the commercial area, so not bad. The first night I was placed in a room with poor shower water draining system and... More

Mar Inn is a fantastic place to stay. I spent three nights there in January 2014 as part of a longish trip through Central America staying at reasonably priced hotels and B&Bs. I have to say it was the best place I stayed. The staff (family run) were incredibly friendly, spoke English and were always on hand to help with... More

For the price it is very clean and staff are friendly & helpful! The rooms are simple but adequate. As previous people have stated it does get windy so the blankets are helpful at night. It is a close walk to town. Even some English TV stations. Breakfast was cooked to order and tasty.

Breakfast was good with fruits,pancakes,... More
