We went to Santa Ana as a family gathering related to an event at the nearby United World College, so chose Posada Nena. The artsy and loose atmosphere worked for teenagers and grandparents alike. Breakfasts were bien rico, while staff was very attentive. Posada Nena was an easy place to mingle, and facilitated conversations with other guests. The real treasure... More

This little Posada is a family owned Hotel. The Owner is most of the time present and available for questions and a chat at the bar. The rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly, the breakfast great and the Pool nice and clean. I cannot think of anything negative. Thanks for the many advises and the navigation system! Lea...

This was a business trip to Santa Ana that started at hotel Luisiana (booked and paid for 3 nights) but left after 2 nights due to the bad service and arrogant owner. Near my customers site I saw Posada Nenas hotel, googled them and was very impressed with what they offered and booked for the next 2 nights. Incredible service!... More

We stayed twice in March at this delightful small hotel. The manager, Gonzalos, was very helpful with numerous requests. He arranged transport for 10 which included several stops to the NW coast that went without a hitch. All requests were offered a solution for us to chose from. The small courtyard is pretty and somehow always has a cool breeze.... More
