Extraordinary place Carlos was really very nice and very caring with us.
I like everything!! Treatment, tranquility, kindness and service
Breakfast Colonial style at home
Pool: dirty, could not be used Room: window without darkness wake up at dawn!! There were no hooks, there were no wipes for the face and hands, there was not enough glass for toothbrushes, it was very, very dirty under the bed. Neglected the whole structure. I asked questions before I went and they didn't answer any of them.
Great location, cleanliness and friendliness of the owners. the pool is great
Frame!!! Welcome and breakfast!
Nothing. ….Good for parking, it's not easy!😉
The atmosphere of Carlos' house is great: an old villa with a lot of charm and lots of vegetation. Day and night we could watch several animals: sloths, toucans, scarlet macaws, monkeys, frogs, toads, olingos, woolly opossums, not to mention Carlos' adorable dogs! Also, the breakfast is wonderful and the place where we have breakfast is very charming!
Mare Nostrum is unique and was our best place to stay in the Czech Republic. Carlos is a very attentive host and gave us very helpful tips. The rooms are beautifully furnished with expensive furniture with great attention to detail. The view of the dreamy garden is unique. The pool is located downstairs in a beautiful garden (looks like a jungle). Here you can have a great rest. The breakfast was the best we had. Tea or coffee, freshly squeezed odaft, homemade cakes, lots of fruits and eggs to choose from. From the breakfast room you can also see the old trees in the garden. Air can only warmly recommend the hotel. The hotel alone is already worth the trip. as it is an exceptionally beautiful building in colonial style.
It doesn't get any better...
Excellent treatment, full breakfast
I can't say anything negative
The house is a replica of an old colonial house. The decor is unique (stylish/rustic) with lots of old furniture and interesting, sometimes strange artifacts. In the natural garden (with jungle character) around the beautiful pool, there are many old trees that are visited by toucans, parrots and squirrel monkeys. In the shade of these tall trees, like in the jungle, it can be quite damp during the rainy season, and the stairs leading to the pool quickly become covered with moss. High humidity is also a problem in the home, so rooms and bedding are aired daily. There was no dampness or mustiness in our room. The place is absolutely quiet, apart from nightly frog concerts and other animal sounds such as bats inhabiting the roof farm. Buses to Manuel Antonio National Park and Quepos stop nearby. Our room, with great pool and garden views, was very clean and spacious, with a comfortable four-poster bed, wardrobe, efficient and quiet air conditioning, and a fridge. The shower worked great, towels were changed every day and sheets on the second day. Carlos the host was very kind and friendly and his breakfast was amazing with cakes and a huge portion of fruit. Given the high price level at Manuel Antonio, the price is reasonable.
No sign, no bell (you could at least put a manual bell on the gate) so hard to find. The people we asked nearby couldn't tell us where the property was. Description of the location on booking.com: "A 120 mts del Hotel Mono Azul" which is on the main road is useless without directions. It is better to indicate that at the intersection, which is located near this hotel, you need to turn onto the road up the mountain "Hotel California Rd". Casa Hotel Mare Nostrvm is located about 100m further on the right hand side, about 50m after Villas Mymosa. The map on booking.com also shows the wrong location. Parking in the driveway leading down in front of the house (maximum 2 cars in a row) is quite problematic as it is easy to land at the gate. In addition, this road is very slippery and covered with moss during the rainy season. It is better to leave the car somewhere else. The lighting in the room was a bit dim.
Casa Hotel Mare Nostrvm is located in an old colonial house. The decor is very tasteful and the Christmas decorations are amazing. Air conditioning (also needed) works great. The house is so close to the road that you can easily walk to the bus and drive to Manuel Antonio/beach etc but far enough away to be very nice and quiet. You have a very nice view of the pool and the countryside from your room and from the breakfast room. In the morning/afternoon you can watch the monkeys or listen to the howler monkeys. We felt very comfortable here. Carlos is also a big contributor to this, he is very sweet, helpful and gives great advice. The breakfast is excellent and very rich.
In the driveway, it is easy to get into a regular city car. As the bus service (every 15 minutes) was very good and we just left the car there, it only affected us once. The lighting in the room is a bit poor - some LEDs would be great. We were the first guests after a long break in Corona so there was still some assembly to be done and a few renovations still to be done.
As soon as you open the gate, the atmosphere is created as if we were at home. Our host Carlos welcomes us with kindness, discretion and simplicity. Early in the morning to start the day, a plate of fruit, small coconut cakes, scrambled eggs, buttered toast, orange juice, coffee or tea will make this breakfast delicious. Thanks again to Carlos.
Fantastic homely atmosphere. The breakfast is excellent. The location is quiet, surrounded by beautiful greenery.
A small oasis in a quiet location. Pleasant atmosphere. Very clean rooms, great pool, delicious breakfast, caters to individual needs.
Of course, this is not an everyday stay, it is a special and colorful whole. With a very friendly host.
Carlos, the benevolent host and remarkable talent for the property.
Colonial or Baroque, magnificent home, it really feels good here. A very pleasant and refreshing pool surrounded by lush greenery. A rich and varied breakfast, Carlos is very attentive to his customers and I would be happy to return. Manuel Antonio Park is a short bus ride away, and the bus stop is 100 meters from Carlos's house. Everything for a pleasant stay, do not hesitate
The location is in the middle of nature, close to everything and at the same time in a quiet and very pleasant place. If you are looking for tranquility and feel truly at home, this is your home! Informal, peaceful, very special from an aesthetic point of view, with exquisite details such as the railing of the stairs leading to the pool and the water lily fountain ... among many others. We stayed 3 nights, 4 days, advice from Carlos (bus and leave the car there, restaurants for dinner, guide to the Antonio nature reserve ... everything was the best option. Carlos is a special host, he is respectful and friendly, leaving the decision to the discretion of the guest This was the best place on our Costa Rica tour, we will definitely return and I recommend it.
There is nothing to say, I wanted to plunge into the calm and violent nature, and there is nowhere better !!!
A very pleasant place with a beautiful pool, where we had the opportunity to observe the fauna (squirrel monkeys, iguanas, scarlet macaws, squirrels, birds). Nice breakfast! Carlos is a very pleasant host.
We appreciated everything: the warm welcome of Carlos, his kindness, abundant and excellent breakfasts, just a charming place with a beautiful large, fresh and clean pool. Squirrel monkeys that visit us every day. Bus stop to Quepos and Manuel Antonio a minute walk. However, to appreciate this place, one should not strive for the level of comfort that comes with modernity. The charm of an experience associated with authenticity requires certain compromises to be made, which are largely outweighed by the beauty of the site and the discretion and kindness of the owners. We loved it!
Kind treatment to Carlos. Colonial style and atmosphere mixed with the Latin Mediterranean. The horizon lake is lost over the jungle. Situation near the bus. Excellent breakfast.
The house has such a pleasant atmosphere ... like a small fairytale castle, the hosts are very friendly. The room is very large, colonial style, overlooking the beautiful pool and jungle. It is spotlessly clean. Bus around the corner to go to Manuel Antonio or the beaches. We recommend ...
All the best...
Everything is very beautiful! The owner was very kind and helpful. House with beautiful rooms, a large pool in greenery, breakfast, shower.
We really liked the style of the house, its decoration, appearance, all the charm. The breakfast is delicious, especially the kindness and attention of Carlos.
Best of all was the attention, Carlos was very concerned about making this experience the best for you. The place is beautiful, very fashionable for decorating a boutique hotel, in the middle of nature, we saw little animals there, you can see that there is a lot of love in the hotel house. Breakfast was very good and complete, very rich coconut bread! The pool is great, beautiful even if there was no interior lighting at night, haha we used it anyway. Also on our last day we wanted to go to the beach before leaving and there was no problem leaving our belongings in the room and returning to the shower after checking in. Many thanks to Carlos for everything Paula and Sebastian.
Stay like this for days, hahaha
A very nice little hostel away from the hustle and bustle of nature, easily accessible thanks to excellent bus connections. Very clean and tasty breakfast, the owner is very friendly and happy to give advice.
I can't think of anything ...
A colorful and charming home! Nice environment and a warm welcome from the owners!
Carlos' personal service was very good and we felt very comfortable.
Delicious breakfast, an oasis of tranquility
Small, kitschy, clean, hospitable host!
This is an incredible place, surrounded by lots of greenery and with a dream pool, the rooms are very comfortable, spacious, tidy and clean. However, the best thing is Carlos, he accepted us and helped us with everything we asked for, he is a very warm and kind person, I wish there were more places like this in Costa Rica that save the Costa Rican architecture. 100% recommended ps: Breakfast is a delicacy :)
can't stay more days
it is more like a guest house (5 rooms) than a hotel. Charming home, dream pool. thoughtful breakfast.
The bed and breakfast is very individual and tastefully decorated. The rooms are very comfortable and large. The views of the pool, gardens and small forest nearby are excellent. Several monkeys, colorful birds and a few more animals also pass by in the morning. The owners, Carlos and Eduardo, are very helpful and helpful with questions. Carlos prepares a delicious breakfast. Mujas Gracias and Carlos y Eduardo for purposes. Hopefully, this hotel will be found and booked by other holidaymakers.
A WONDERFUL experience both in terms of the brightness of Carlos and the beauty of the home and surroundings. Spacious accommodations, gourmet breakfasts and unrivaled tranquility. Definitely one of the best places in Costa Rica !!!
We are a couple from Ecuador and Carlos makes us feel very welcome. In him you will find a very kind and calculating person. The breakfasts are delicious and on hot days there is a pool to cool off. We are very happy and grateful, Carlos made us feel at home and we will definitely remember him fondly. Fully Recommended
The decor and atmosphere are reminiscent of the colonial era of the 1900s, the owner is very friendly and attentive. A charm set among lush greenery not to be missed.
everything was perfect
very beautiful place, very beautiful pool surrounded by greenery, you could see animals. very decent breakfast. good place to go to Manuel Antonio park. unfortunately we have not seen parrots
Carlos was very helpful and kind Great breakfast overlooking the garden
Guest house with 5 bedrooms and a pool surrounded by greenery ... hospitable hosts ... great breakfast ... nice decor ... we would like to live in this house
Mention ++++ for a very warm welcome, very good breakfast and perfect location 10 minutes from Manuel Antonio Park. The hotel is a very beautiful old house with a swimming pool, spacious rooms and eclectic yet charming décor. As a bonus, the view of the toucans in the hotel garden.
Nothing at all, it was in line with our expectations. The hardest part would be to mention the equipment, which is a little outdated (especially the slightly noisy air conditioner), but that didn't bother us.
