The inn keeper and his family was very nice and made you feel welcome. You will have fun with the cat and dog that greets you as you enter the premises. Only one issue is no hot water from the sink only the tub.

I cannot explain how wonderful this man is! Yes, I am aware this review is supposed to be about the hotel, which by the way is clean, comfy, has hot water, but I have to rave about Freddy! He is the greatest! His bird tour is phenomenal. He can spot a bird from oceans away lol. Sloths too. His wife... More

Last year we joined Freddy for a bird watching tour. When we returned to Santa Elena again this February, we stayed at Freddy's Puesta del Sol for two nights, and once again joined Freddy for his bird watching tour. The room was basic and spotlessly clean. The beds were comfortable. Free Wifi signal reaches the rooms. The location is a... More

After sleeping one night in the worst hostel of the area, we ended up finding this marvelous place! The family that owns the place is awesome, they helped us in whatever we needed. The rooms are for five people, but they allowed us to have one extra person. They even lent us a little kitchen and a table for us... More

We stayed 3 nights at La Puesta del Sol and it was a very nice experience. The owners, Freddy and Juanita are very nice and attentive people and we felt very much welcomed with them (and their daughters too!). They are locals, so they really know the area and we could learn a lot about how life is in town.... More

My sister and I stayed at Freddy's La Puesta Del Sol during the holidays in 2012 and definitely recommend it. This was - thankfully - not in the center of Santa Elena where our first hotel was located. This was slightly outside of the town center which made for a much quieter night sleep! It was only a 10 minute... More

We recently spent three nights at Freddie and Juanita's hotel. They were most attentive to any of our needs or concerns and made us feel right at home. We took Freddie's tour our first morning and were thrilled with his knowledge of the birds and wildlife in the immediate area. A great way to discover some of the sights and... More

Although we didn't stay at this hotel we booked a birding tour with Freddy since he was recommended. I went with my boyfriend who is a hardcore birder and he was super exited. Freddy took us on a 4 hour tour where we saw birds, including Toucans and Motmots, and as a bonus we also saw a sloth and one... More
