My sister and I stayed at Freddy's La Puesta Del Sol during the holidays in 2012 and definitely recommend it. This was - thankfully - not in the center of Santa Elena where our first hotel was located. This was slightly outside of the town center which made for a much quieter night sleep! It was only a 10 minute walk into the very center of town anyway, so the location was just right. We had a 1st floor room with 2 twin beds and one double, our own shower and bath - it was very comfortable and super clean. The best part about the stay was Freddy's wildlife tour! He is from Santa Elena, knows EVERYONE in town, and not only took us out for a 5AM birding+ tour of the area, but got up and made us breakfast in his kitchen too! We saw FAR MORE birds and wildlife with Freddy than we did with the guides in the Monteverde Cloud Forest - in part because he knows the special areas around that are not heavily frequented by tourists, and which are owned and accessed by local people instead. We definitely recommend this hotel and Freddy's tour!!
