San Francisco, California7 contributions
We had a great stay here and loved the location ideally within walking distance of town and many nature spots. Staff is very accommodating! Pool and jacuzzi are spectacular- love the walking path too. I gave 4 stars only because rooms while new and beautiful felt a bit “hotel” like to me and noise travels easily.

Our family of four stayed two nights between Christmas and New Year's Day 2021. It was a wonderful experience. The hotel and grounds are very well maintained. The reception staff was professional and friendly. Our rooms were cleaned daily. There are several restaurants within walking distance and plenty of excursions available in the area. Breakfast in the dining room was delicious! We all enjoyed our stay.

As others have said, it's an in-town hotel but in a good way. Santa Elena is a great home base to explore the area, and hotel is a great place to stay. Rooms are a bit small but comfortable and well-equipped. Great views, excellent pool and hot tub area - all steps away from Santa Elena that's well worth exploring. Dinner options are a bit expensive and not necessarily kid friendly (though breakfast is fantastic). Staff are friendly and helpful. Highly recommend to anyone planning to visit the area.

Great hotel that was very well kept. Beautiful grounds and the short nature trail on-site was a nice touch. All staff (restaurant, front desk, housekeeping) were very professional and friendly. The on-site restaurant provided great food and service and the pool bar was spot on with tropical drinks. Our whole group enjoyed our visit here.

My wife and I recently went to Poco a Poco during the Christmas break with our family(kids aged 12, 7, 7). There was lots of space in the room for the family of 5 which is not always the case with 3 kids. Overall The hotel was amazing. The views were breathtaking. Restaurant had a fun Christmas menu, life music, and items for our picky children too! Kids loved the pool. The small size, cleanliness and safety protocols made us feel extremely safe and we did not have to worry about Covid at all.
