We loved this place, we wanted a couple of quiet days before we hit the beach and that's exactly what we got. The place is only a 10 min walk to everything- uphill but the while area is uphill. It's a really tranquil place with a lovely view. Antony was very helpful with booking our tours and honest and not...

We enjoyed this hotel, near enough to the centre of Monteverde and with friendly, helpful staff and a good breakfast of freshly made pancakes or eggs, with fruit. Nice balcony to relax on and nice enough rooms. But we stayed in a room that backed off the hotel and the wind was very noisy and it was a bit chilly....

We planned to stay at Santa Elena for only one night. Eventually, it became three nights. Anthony is the owner of the B&B and was very helpfull telling us wich tours were nice to do and tried to make our stay as good as it could be. He even bought a birthday cake for my husband! The breakfast was great,...

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...

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...

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...

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.

This B&B is clean and nice with all the necessities. Anthony was very helpful to us in giving recommendations and for booking tours for us. Breakfast was always good.

Small and family run hotel, good location and very helpful with all tours. if just staying for a few days to take in the local tours then this does the job very well.
