We had a perfect stay here. The room and bath are clean. Breakfast is good. The service is excellent, Anthony (speaks perfect english) and his staff are always there and so helpful. You get great value for the price.

Due to rain the road got inaccessable for our rentalcar so we were forced to go to an other town. We booked for two nights and had to pay for two nights for absolutely nothing. It's lowseason now not one hotel is fully booked. I'm very disappointed in this kind of service. To pay for 1 night I can understand,...

The location - at the end of the paved town road - just a few minutes walk to the restaurants and shops is great. Anthony welcomed us with a very useful map, and explained where everything was, and suggested a walking guide - which his colleague later booked for us. The room was a reasonable size, the beds nice and...

You will find Pura vida in Mar inn. The staff will help you in everything, included in booking all the activities. The hotel is located in walking distance from the town which is very convenient. You do no need to take the car for anything. Follow their suggestions for eating

On our travels to Monteverde, we stayed at the Mar Inn. Anthony was at the front desk when we arrived and he and the other staff were friendly, helpful and very nice. Tatiana helped with breakfast and was helpful at helping us with our Spanish. We enjoyed the room with leaving the windows open during the day and evening with...

Simple but cosy Inn. The windows are far from sealing, though, letting insects inside the room as well as noise from the adjacent hotel, which is big for Monte Verde standards. The staff is nice and friendly.

Not many motels were displayed during our Internet search for lodging. Once we arrived in the area , we saw many hotels. The Mar Inn is a good local B&B. The breakfast is good (choice of pancakes or eggs). Parking is a bit tight.

Mars Inn was a nice place. After a hearty welcome, the staff did everything they could to see to our comfort. We were given a room with total privacy. It was adequate and comfortable. A bit more light in the bathroom would have been good. Breakfasts offered a number of choices, all of which were well prepared. Coffee was available...

I spent 2 nights at Mar Inn. The staff is very friendly, especially Anthony the manager. The hotel is sitting on a hill about 5-min walk from the center of Santa Elena. My room was located on the ground floor, just next to the reception and the breakfast area. Furniture is basic but comfort is good. There is a small...

This B&B definitely exceeded my expectation. The room is clean and spacious. We had two queen sized beds, and the bathroom is big too. It is a 5 min walk to town. Breakfast has three choices, pancakes, eggs, rice and beans, all with a plate of fresh fruits.
