The Mar Inn is a great value B&B because it is quiet but close to everything in Santa Elena. They serve tasty breakfasts and provide assistance for all Monteverde activities.
- anthony is a very friendly and helpful guy, he answered all our questions and helped us to organise the tours we wanted to do - room was spacious, had all facilities and was cleaned every day - very nice breakfast - very close to the center of town, must check out restaurant Morpho if you are there because of the excellent food and service!!
The owner and his son were very helpful in assisting us with booking our zip lining and horse back riding tours. The room was very reasonably priced and the breakfast was very good!
The man at the desk was very pleasant and helpful. He found information for us and also made reservations for tours and transport. Breakfast was nice. Enjoyed the rocking chairs on the balcony. Quiet location a bit above the town, but still an easy walk.
Great value. Room was clean and functional but not fancy. Free breakfast was excellent. Anthony was very helpful in arranging activities. Location was convenient except the last 100 feet of unpaved rutted road.
We loved how close we were to everything we wanted to do - zip lining, hiking, coffee tours, horseback riding, etc. Anthony was delightful and full of great advice about things to see and do and eat. He went out of his way to make our time in Santa Elena the best it could be.
The walls and floors are thin so if you're a light sleeper, I'd recommend bringing earplugs.
I chose the Mar Inn based on the reviews I read, which were all accurate. The staff was extremely friendly and hospitable and went above and beyond to accommodate any wishes (special thanks to Anthony).The amenities and hotel room were spacious, clean and had everything one could ask for (personally all I really care for are clean sheets and towels and hot showers). I did also appreciate the complementary tee and coffee by the reception. Our room also had a flat screen TV and a mini bar (which we didn't need). The location within Santa Elena was convenient. I would highly recommend Mar Inn to anybody who wants to visit the area.
Whilst we didn't hear any noise from other rooms within the hotel, there was quite some street noise (which probably is unavoidable anywhere in Santa Elena).
Staff, location, breakfast, room... everything!! Great value for money
Antony was awesome. He recommended and organized tours for us as soon as we got there. Plus he even emailed me in advance so I had an idea. This was my favorite stay in Costa Rica and the most affordable.
It was perfectly located, just a walkable distance (uphill) outside of the main part of town. Staff was friendly and I would stay there again.
The only down point was that they convinced us to book transport to tamarindo through them and not interbus. Big mistake, this shuttle service was awful and just as expensive as interbus.
Nicely located just above Santa Elena, a 5 minute walk into town. Staff super helpful and took great care of us.
The staff hère very helpful to enlighten the visit in Santa Elena It was very nice on their part to offer me their services via email before my arrival. Will recommande to m'y friendster any time
The staff was very helpful. The complimentary breakfast was great and loved our room.
Was a bit out of the center of town (which wasn't bad) but it was a climb to get back to hotel.
The owner was extremely nice and helped with directions, etc. The house is at a different location from the lodge and it is where one of the night tours begin. The owner has two dogs at the house and they were the sweetest dogs and the biggest plus for our little girl. There is a washer dryer at the house which also a big plus. We were very happy with the accommodation.
Our front porch area for our room. I also liked the location in regards to Santa Elena central town area.
No shampoo available.
Family run, very competent, friendly and helpful for organising daytrips, and finding places in town. Rooms are clean, spacious and safe.
First room I stayed in was quite noisy, thin walls and close to reception and parking
The owner nand his son were very cooperative and sympathetic. Breakfast is very good
No english channel on tv
The staff spoke perfect English but also encouraged me with some slow and clear Spanish for the bits I could manage. Tour recommendations were good, I enjoyed all of them. There was always someone smiling and helpful on reception. I loved the balcony with rocking chair.
Not a dislike so much as a warning: The hotel is 5 minutes up a very steep hill from the centre of town and the last part is unsealed with no footpath, so a nightmare with a suitcase and hard work with a heavy backpavk. If you arrive by bus, take one of the many taxis touting for business as the bus rolls in, it's really worth the c800!
Nice room with fridge. DE-LI-CIOUS breakfasts. Staff is very helpful to help you navigate, book activities, etc. They booked for us a Monteverde Cloud Forest guided tour (free-lance guide) with Christian who was amazing. Walking distance to restaurants.
The owner Anthony was really helpful and kind. He organized us guided tour in cloud forest with excellent guide. It is also worth to mention his excellent English. The breakfast is basic, but pretty fair for price. Overall great stay.
Close to the centre of town, lots of restaurants nearby. Good breakfast with tea and coffee available all day. Helpful staff with information and bookings.
Excellent staff, especialy Antony helped us with everything; delicious breakfast freshly prepared, delicious small cakes for 1$, always available coffe and tee for free for guests of the hotel, great wi-fi connection in the room, hot shower, at the reception all information leaflets.
It was realy cold in the room because the weather was realy windy and the wind was blowing through the holes.
very nice place with great staff. I would go back again anytime
Anthony was excellent providing advice and booking trips when required. He seemed to be always available. The location was very good being convenient to Santa Elena yet a quick drive Monteverde.
Very homely, friendly
Everything was very good
