This is a pleasant 16 room hotel, within easy walking distance to the main town, while being far enough away to make it a peaceful place. We had a Deluxe room for our 2 night stay, which I think is the best option for this place. We did pass some other rooms which seemed quite small. We had a very...

When a pretty rude van driver unloaded my luggage and left me in the middle of the street, instead of the front of hotel which was just off the main road uphill, I was wondering how I'm going to pull this through. Then I saw an unusual, charming hotel with garden, and soon I was offered a coffee and the...

I stayed in this hotel two nights. very clean room. The area very well maintained. The staff were very polite and the receptionists are informative. The WiFi worked just in reception. The restaurant is very quiet and cozy. The hotel is very close to the town.

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...

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.
