Anthony runs the business very professional, he even sent a map and a pricelist of tours after booking. Of course you can book every tour, as in any other hostal, too. Breakfast is included and very good, it is done by Anthonys mum. Rooms are very clean, hot shower, two computers in the lobby area for free use. Takes credit cards without surcharge. Rooms with view from the balcony are a bit expensive, but splendid. But: Yes, the walls are a bit thin, you can hear your neighbour snoring in the night... no big deal.

Room Tip: Rooms downstairs are cheaper and still very good.

Mar Inn is located about 400 meters from the center of Santa Elena. It is a small, family run hotel. The family who runs it is very friendly, the atmosphere is excellent, the rooms are clean, breakfast is good, and there is a great balcony with views all the way across Arenal lake , 1000 meters below.
We stayed there with our 3 children and enjoyed it a lot

Selected Mar Inn due to the great reviews, location and price. Our room was basic but very clean with all the necessities - including a safe which was a bonus at this price range and provides additional piece of mind. The location was great - close enough to town to avoid the need for taxis but far enough away to avoid the constant traffic (one night was noisy next door but slept perfectly fine with ear plugs). Balcony with rocking chairs provided a great wind down for each day. Breakfast was tops with fresh fruit, pancakes and eggs. Laundry service was reasonably priced. Best of all was Anthony who provided excellent advice and suggestions throughout our four days in monteverde. Will stay here again if lucky enough to return.

We stayed for just one night in early July. We were late arriving and the hosts were helpful in rescheduling a tour we had missed. The only down side was the rooms had a musty odor which could be a problem if someone had allergy to mold. Breakfast was very good.

We were with 2 adults and 3 kids and the room was stadions enough. Very clean, new bathroom and breakfast was delicious.
Both Anthony and his family were very hands-on and helped us a lot during our stay. We extended our stay for another night and we felt like home. So this is a very recommandable stay if you want to get value for money!
