The rooms dated but are clean and functional. The location is central and staff very helpful for doing all booking of tours or transfers and general advice. Bed sheets kept coming off bed and the bed was very creaky so could be improved but for this price would recommend.

The Mar Inn was a perfect spot for our recent family adventure to Costa Rica. We had two very clean rooms side by side for each of our families, and our kids were able to play in the ample area outside our rooms. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and make all of your bookings once... More

Great little hotel run by local family. Cooked breakfast was delicious. Lovely room with lots of windows. Helpful with tours. Located Up a steep hill so it's a little hard to get to. Limited parking space so you need to leave your keys with the front desk.

The best example for the service: owner Anthony sent me an email BEFORE we arrived... The mail contained a map of the area and helped us planning ahead.. Such a pleasant place. Very clean and quiet,plus a safe in the room. Good energies. We also had a really nice porch.. Cons: no mountain view from the window. Very good value... More

My son and I stayed here on a recent trip to Costa Rica. By two guys standards the place was clean and comfortable. It is a short walking distance to downtown Santa Elena with shops and restaurants. There is a main building and a back building they share with the Inn next door (Don Taco). We stayed in the back... More

This hotel is clean, reasonable, and located in a convenient place. The stuff are friendly and helpful to book our activities. Wifi works very well and the pancakes at breakfast are amazing! There is a balcony so you can overlook the beautiful view of Monteverde. A great place to stay for a family.

Anthony, the owner of the hotel, is the epitome of excellent service! He is friendly, curtious, extremely helpful and very accommodating. Anthony IS the hotel. He loves what he does from checking in guests to making phone calls for you to serving his guests a delicious breakfast each morning. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely recommend Mar... More

We enjoyed our stay in Monteverde very much, in large part due to Anthony's friendly, helpful service. It is located close enough to the town centre to be convenient but not too close - we found it very peaceful and enjoyed returning at night. The rooms were comfortable with wifi and the breakfast was delicious! Highly competitive rates for fabulous... More

Simply great value. Management is extremely nice and helpful from local recommendations to reserving a table in a restaurant. Breakfast is delicious. 5 minutes walk from the town centre which feels like one adventure centre. Don't miss the canopy zipline experience in Selvatura park as it us really one of a kind.
