Our family of four really loved this place. Behind the simple entrance lies an oasis of calm and warmth. Rooms are nice, and there is a spacious layout to sit, read, socialize, lounge on a hammock, etc. The owner is very warm and helpful, and has EXCELLENT taste in music!! All in all, a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

We stayed for two nights in Posada Nena. From the outside it doesn't look like anything special but once you get inside you can see the beautiful garden + bar area. The room was nice and clean and the bed comfortable. The hammock in front of the room was nice too. We had a meal there as well but that... More

we stayed for one night just as a quick excursion inland. Albeit a little difficult to find with all the one ways and no street signage in Santa Ana, after talking a couple of locals we were able to find this little gem. Charming, quiet, relaxing little boutique hotel. Our host was amazing, super friendly and helpful, wish we could... More

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
