From the moment we checked in to the time we checked out we were stunned by Fonda Vela. It is the furthest down the road from Santa Elena but that turned out to be a great thing. The views from our room was incredible and the room itself was enormous and very comfortable. The hotel has it's own hiking trails which are wonderful. There is so much wildlife to see just on the hotel grounds. The restaurant was very good but expensive. The pool and hot tubs were gorgeous and very comfortable. The bar was great. The restaurant/bar is absolutely gorgeous with wonderful views all around. A cab from Fonda Vela to Santa Elena is only $5 dollars or you could walk up and down hills for about 25 minutes. It was comfortable and lovely. The staff was incredible and by the second day they knew our names. It's a must go.
