Great hotel. Amazing gardens, rooms are very cute and cozy. The team is great. Bathrooms was great for a warm shower after a rainy day. Good soda right in front of the hotel. We were lucky enough to see a soth in one of the trees of the hotel gardens. Hotel helps organize any and all activities. Great place! Would...

We had two nights here and it was okay. The good stuff: free parking, spacious and quirky room under the reception with wifi signal, close to down town Santa Elena- only a 7 min. walk away from a wide range of eateries. Down side: nasty sewer smell from the bathroom, quite boring breakfast... but the staff was really great and...

Had a 2 nights stay here and generally everything was as expected. Good stuff: free parking, free breakfast, free Internet (if you can catch it) and very helpful staff.

We spent three nights here and it's a very nice hotel, run by very nice people. The reception staff couldn't be more helpful. The room was clean and cool and the breakfast hearty and, again, served by helpful staff. A five minute walk takes you to central Santa Elena and its many restaurants. The hotel staff can help organise your...

We booked 1 night originally as it was our first night in Costa Rica and we weren't sure of our plans and wanted to see what the hotel was like. We were pleasantly surprised by the whole place - room, service and garden/views. We ended up staying three nights and had a lovely time. As it is low season we...

The room that we had was located in the house near the restaurant (it was a deluxe room) and it was really amazing. The staff was very friendly and helped us with any questions we had.
