“Very good to stay here when visiting the nice village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Nicely situated hotel in impressive mountain village. Rooms are beautiful. We had two huge beds. In the bathroom there was a bubble bath. They serve a good breakfast. Advice about possibilities was very complete. Wifi working. A hotel to come back.

We stayed here for two nights and were very happy with the stay. The staff were friendly and helpful in booking tours and finding us alternative transportation when we missed our pre arranged shuttle. They also have good recommendations for tours - go to El Trapiche (coffee/sugar came plantation)!! The breakfast was great and the morning walk through the gardens from the main house to breakfast is glorious.

We stayed 2 nights here. Beautiful grounds. Made of wood rooms was so rustic. A couple of issues, the people who own this small BB hotel speak Spanish and little English. Restaurant is only open for breakfast, must walk into town to get food other times. Close walking to most things. I would stay again.

Room Tip: Nice place to stay for a night or two

Its a very beautiful hotel made of wood with spacious, clean rooms and nice large bathroom and amazing garden. 3 mins walk from the "center" of the village.
I only stayed one night in the low season -there were only 4 more guests in the hotel and they are were clearly heard through the wood floors and walls -this may be a problem in high season when hotel is full.
Lukewarm water.
No TV (if that interests you)
Free WiFi
Poor breakfast.

This hotel is on the outskirts of Santa Elena. It consists of two parts, the main house (where our room was located), and a second house with the more spacier rooms. The whole area is a converted ranch with a nice garden.

The main house (and the rooms as well) has a nice styling, with a lot of wood being used.

Positive:
- Styling
- Garden
- Quiet
- Nice personell
- spacey bathroom
- Free wifi

Negative:
- Very (very!) noisy rooms in the main house. You can hear each conversation from above and beside your room, and every step on the second floor resonates throughout the house. This is because the floors are built with a single layer of wood without any noise insulation.
- Some rooms (especially our room) in the main house ware very dark (the only window we had was directly facing an overgrown rock)
- No fridge
- Not enough value for money (like most hotels in Costa Rica)

Overall i would recommend this hotel only if you can get a room in the newer building at the back of the lot, the room in the main building are simply too noisy.

Room Tip: Avoid the main house.

I got the deluxe room which provided us with 2 queen beds, including sheer curtains surrouning the bed so we felt like princesses. The bathroom was spacious with a lovely large shower and high ceilings and skylights.
The surrounding garden is beautiful - like their own private butterfly garden. While wifi anf TV connection aren't great, this is a great place if you just want to relax, take in the view and sit back in your rocking chair on the patio and soak up the warm atmosphere.
Breakfast wasn't great, but it was good enough and the staff are relatively polite.
Its quite a close distance from the centre of Santa Elena town, about 5 minute walk there, 8 minutes back (its up hill). But i woulnd't recommend walking at night - its very dark, very rocky and very hilly. However, the views are fantastic.

Room Tip: We were not in the main building above the reception - which doesn't seem to have got the great...
