The staff here was friendly and helpful. There is a nice breakfast with the best bread I've had in Costa Rica. The porch is lovely to sit on, especially at sunset. I like that this inn is just outside of the little town - the walk is short to town, but it's just enough to keep the noise of the... More

The staff at Mar Inn are very friendly and helpful which was definitely great when we were trying to navigate Santa Elena. Our room itself was very clean and had a nice outdoor seating area. The complimentary breakfast was also very nice- definitely try the pancakes! Unfortunately I slept horribly when I stayed here- our room was right by the... More

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
