We stayed at Historias Lodge as part of a package group that was arranged by a travel company in Tamarindo. We had no idea where we would be staying and were at the mercy of the booking agent. As we entered the town of Santa Elena with a bus load of people that were all bound for different hotels, we sat back and waited for our destination. Some of the hotels/hostels were a bit sketchy and we wondered what kind of place awaited us. We were nearly the last ones dropped off, but we were THRILLED when the bus pulled up to Historias Lodge. It was so much better than some we had just seen! It is a quaint and quiet property that has been well taken care of. Alba & Luis were wonderful hosts and were very helpful with information. You can tell they take great pride in the property!!! We stayed in a second floor room facing the courtyard. It was clean, had 3 beds, a wonderful bathroom, and a safe. We did the Don Juan coffee tour in the afternoon and explored the area around the hotel for the rest of the day (there is a local grocery and a bakery a block or so away). That evening we opted to walk downtown to eat at the Tree House Restaurante and to explore the town. It is a decent walk, but it is all downhill. We took a taxi back, which I would recommend to anyone that isn't looking for an extreme workout going back up the hill. The following morning we had a spectacular made to order breakfast in the hotel dining area while we watched the hummingbirds out the window. Sadly, we only had one night in Santa Elana and I think one would want a minimum of two. I don't know if I'll ever get back to Santa Elena, but if I do I will certainly stay at Historias!!!
