“Beautiful B&B - walking distance to town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2011

Among the dirt roads Hotel Atardecer emerges. The staff was wonderful and made excellent breakfasts. The rooms were clean, the bed comfortable. Bathrooms were clean with huge showers. The courtyard was beautiful. Rosita was a wonderful hostess along with her daughter. The dining room had free hi speed internet - not available in the rooms. TV and phone were absent here, wonderfully tranquil just a short walk from town. The walls of the hotel were very thin, you could here every whisper in the rooms next to yours, but once everyone was asleep it was very peaceful.

An affordable bed & breakfast hotel walking distance to the center of Santa Elena. Great sunset views from upper story, which looks out over the Nicoya Gulf. The family who owns and operates the Atardecer are wonderful, though their English skills are limited, so be prepared to use your Spanish. Breakfast was generous and tasty. Rooms were small but clean and comfortable, and the water was hot. No TV or telephone in our room, but we didn't miss them. Not much road traffic noise to worry about, but you'll definitely hear the comings and goings of your neighbors thanks to the courtyard layout and very thin walls. Be sure to stop at the jewelry shop as you're walking in to town. The gracious proprietor hand-makes beautiful and affordable earrings and necklaces on site using native seeds and hardwoods.
