We, a couple from Germany, stayed one night in March 2013 in Posada Nena. Internet page read good, many good ratings on tripadvisor, and the owner, Volker, was very friendly in email conversion. We had one of the two superior rooms which are “garden” facing. But our stay was disappointing. The area of the “Posada” is small. The property is...

It has a nice area for sunbathing/ sitting in the sun. The restaurant is nice and they serve good breakfast. A side note - don't flush toilet paper in Costa Rica, there is really little water pressure and it can lead to some toilet disasters.

Wonderful place to stay. It's small and cozy and the staff is warm and helpful. I have been here three times now and each time it is peaceful and restful. A good breakfast and hot jacuzzi comes with the deal. If you want something near the airport and not too far off the beaten path of San Jose. This is...

This little gem is just about 20minutes away from downtown Santa Jose and close to the airport at the same time.

Everyone here was nice and accommodating to our young kids. the breakfast was great and we enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of sight seeing. The location is great...in a quiet part of Santa Ana but still in walking distance of the town.
