Great hotel that is located on the main road in Monteverde. It is about 7 minutes from the Monteverde cloud forest reserve. The rooms are very nice and very clean with a spacious bathroom. Staff was very friendly and helped us book tours in the area. Breakfast was very good.

We arrived at the Mar Inn to be told that the door to our room was broken and if we were to stay in the room are belongings would not be secure and they could not guarantee it would be fixed that day. They thankfully had a room held for us at the hotel next door. We were disapointed because... More

This isn't the type of place I usually stay but if you are on a budget this might be worth looking at. I would rather pay more and upgrade. The location has loud traffic. No views to speak of. Dingy rooms. Old beds and bedding. No chairs or dressers or closets. It was kind of clean if mildewed walls in... More

A friend and I traveled to Monteverde, Costa Rica to visit the Cloud Forest Reserve. I searched a number of websites before selecting the Mar Inn Bed & Breakfast because of its proximity to the town of Monteverde (walking distance) and it had received several excellent reviews. Ernesto was managing the property the 1st day and Anthony (the owner) was... More

My room was super clean & had a very comfortable bed. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding - plentiful and delicious! An easy walk to all of the restaurants & shops in town.

We stayed in a small, but quiet and comfortable room. Showers were good, staff was prepared and helped us booking canopy tour for the next day. Breakfast was very good with options for different tastes.

place is nicer than average, clean and comfortable. It was probably one of the more comfortable beds we slept on (we slept on some bad ones in Fortuna).
