We loved our stay at the Arco Iris Lodge. My husband, two children (4 and 6), and I stayed in the House, a two-bedroom cabin high on the hill with a small kitchen. We had a lovely porch where we could watch the rain and my kids loved exploring the grounds looking for bugs. We had the feeling of being outside of the town while still being walking distance from shops and services. As far as I can tell, there are very few places if any in Santa Elena that provide that. The provided breakfast was amazing and the kitchen staff were so pleasant. Overall, the staff were very helpful.
