This budget hotel lived up to expectations when it came to the room but surpassed expectations when it came to customer service. It is a basic budget hotel. Rooms a bit run down but very clean. We had a 2 bedroom suite with a private balcony complete with table, chairs and a hammock. Perfect for a family of 4. What...

My wife and I left the US with no particular landing place in mind in Costa Rica other than the airport in Liberia. A local friend called Larry who is the owner of the Mariner Inn, and got us a very difficult room to get in the high season. It turned out to be the best decision we made in...

Finally we made our way to Flamingo beach, because we were told it has the best beach in Costa Rica, after we entered this small exclusive town, the first place we saw was Mariner Inn and decided to stay there....

My daughter and I stayed at this hidden jewel of Playa Flamingo in Costa Rica during the week of November 12, 2012. Location of Mariner Inn is situated right in the central of Playa Flamingo and apparently the area of Playa Flamingo has a long time reputation of being expensive - however, that is not the case with Mariner Inn....
