I stayed 2 nights in Hotel Cipreses when in Santa Elena on a tour of Costa Rica. I had Room 17 which was a single room with a double bed.
Pros: rooms are large and clean. The hotel reminds me a bit of a motel. It is about 500m from downtown Santa Elena, so away from any noise or traffic. Breakfast buffet offers decent value.
Cons: hot water was a constant problem, even though they say that water should be hot within 30 seconds, most of the group never got hot water when they wanted it, and I had to shower the next morning as there was no hot water the two times I tried in the evening. The hotel is located on a gravel road with no signs, so can easily be missed if you are walking home to the hotel. There is only wifi in the reception area.
Overall, I would say that it represents decent accommodation, but I think there are better options in the price range.
