Wonderful place to stay, we stayed 2 nights here and couldn't have been happier. Nice clean rooms, great breakfast, (the best banana pancakes I have ever had)! Coffee and tea were available throughout the day. Friendly staff and very helpful and knowledgeable. They were able to recommend and book great tours for us. Perfect location - just a quick walk...

Rooms were clean, sheets smelled nice, hot shower, excellent hosts (when we checked-in they showed us what can we do around in Monteverde) ans super-breakfast. We had a room outside the main house and the rain during the night woke... More

We had a great time at the Mar inn. Rooms are spacious and clean, shower is hot and the host is super friendly and helpfull. That, in combination with a top location and good breakfast makes this a nice place to stay.

Anthony and family made us feel very taken care of during our stay in Monteverde. They were very helpful and responsive to our needs. Everything was meticulously clean, including our bedroom and bathroom. We really appreciated the variety of healthy and tasty options for breakfast. The coffee was good too. Other pros: fridges and safes in room, very nice bathrooms,... More

My family of three stayed here for 12 days during a service trip to the region. The rooms were clean and well appointed; ours had a patio out back; a balcony overlooked the town to the Gulf of Nicoya, a 1.5 hour drive away. The owners, the Mar family, do a wonderful job running the place. The son, Anthony, speaks... More

We traveled with 6 adults and 3 children. We stayed in 3 separate rooms and would highly recommend rooms 7 and 3. This is a family owned and run B&B and they take great pride in their establishment. The rooms were spotless and the breakfast was delicious. We were treated with a spotting of the local sloth on our first... More

After hiking the Monteverde Cloud Forest all day, this B&B couldn't be more welcoming! We did not have a reservation but the Mar Inn was recommended by a restaurant down the road. Beautiful hotel in a convenient location. Anthony was welcoming, gave us a good rate and answered all of our questions about the area. The building was spotless and... More

We did not book in advance and followed the good review of the lonely planet. The welcome was nice and polite from the tenant who offered directly a green season price for a big double room 50$ (which is a fairly good price being in Santa Elena with a good level of comfort and at a walking distance from bars...
