My husband and I booked this hotel for one night when we arrived in Costa Rica for our first trip. Our only regret is that we did not decide to stay more than one night and that we went to San Jose before leaving instead of returning to this wonderful little town and staying in this perfect hotel. This hotel was small but it had everything we possibly needed. When we arrived we were met by a gentleman who gave us SEVERAL different types of places to eat. We were very hungry and wanted something authentic to eat. He suggested El Coco. IT WAS AMAZING! Walking distance and amazing. Our room was clean and very cute. The bathroom was spacious. LARGE shower. The bed was comfortable and we had a small safe in the room, which my husband forgot the combination he set when we arrived. Luckily staff had a master key and was able to open it. The hot tub was no longer there but the garden area was so cute. We honestly didn't have the time to use a hot tub even if it was present. WE LOVED breakfast! You go to the little outdoor area to eat and they just simply bring it out to you. We were a few minutes behind and they even asked our driver if he wanted anything to drink or eat which I thought was very kind of them. Their generosity and attention to detail was spot on. Breakfast was tea, coffee, fresh fruit, egg, ham, local homemade cheese, toast, pancakes with jam and butter and syrup on the side. Again, the only regret we had was that we arrived late and left early. Next time we visit the country (which we will because it was the best place we have EVER visited) we will for sure return to stay here at the beginning AND end of our stay. We will FOR sure skip San Jose. Next time we may even decide to stay here 2 nights at the beginning and another 2 nights at the end of our stay. We had that much of a good time. I highly recommend staying here if you are considering it!! You will not regret the decision.

This cozy and very calm hotel which is lead by Volker Alsen is a fantastic place to start and to end your holidays in Costa Rica. It is 20 minutes from the Airport. Volker and his team are very helpful when planning your tours. The breakfast is delicious.

I came to visit my son who studies at UWC and I wanted to see something from Costa Rica. Posada Nena was a perfect place to start and finish your holiday. The owner is well travelled and loves to share his stories and knowledge in the evening at the bar, drinking a beer. You will meet other (lot of germans) travellers. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a simple, clean, easy going small hotel. To come on your own is also very much OK. I will be back in May for the graduation of my son.

Room Tip: best rooms are in the back of the garden, as they are more quiet

We have stayed here several times, and recommend all our friends to stay here as well.
It's all about the details. Such as the fresh pot of coffee when you wake up in the morning, the safe parking, the friendly and always attentive staff, the very comfortable rooms with the little seating areas outside and not least de the lovely owners. Thank you Volker and Minerva!

The stay at Posada Nena worked out perfectly for us. Set up is practical and decorative with everything you need for basic comfort in this climate. We especially appreciated promptness how super friendly staff attended to us and our queries, cleanliness, tasty breakfast, location in walking distance to supermarket, bank, bus stop and my daughter's new school. Garden and yoga space on balcony with view of mountains were lovely in this urban area. The owner was exceptional in answering my emails, arranging taxi or tours and helping out with my lack of Spanish.
