Last year we joined Freddy for a bird watching tour. When we returned to Santa Elena again this February, we stayed at Freddy's Puesta del Sol for two nights, and once again joined Freddy for his bird watching tour. The room was basic and spotlessly clean. The beds were comfortable. Free Wifi signal reaches the rooms. The location is a...

After sleeping one night in the worst hostel of the area, we ended up finding this marvelous place! The family that owns the place is awesome, they helped us in whatever we needed. The rooms are for five people, but they allowed us to have one extra person. They even lent us a little kitchen and a table for us...

We stayed 3 nights at La Puesta del Sol and it was a very nice experience. The owners, Freddy and Juanita are very nice and attentive people and we felt very much welcomed with them (and their daughters too!). They are locals, so they really know the area and we could learn a lot about how life is in town....

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...

We recently spent three nights at Freddie and Juanita's hotel. They were most attentive to any of our needs or concerns and made us feel right at home. We took Freddie's tour our first morning and were thrilled with his knowledge of the birds and wildlife in the immediate area. A great way to discover some of the sights and...

Although we didn't stay at this hotel we booked a birding tour with Freddy since he was recommended. I went with my boyfriend who is a hardcore birder and he was super exited. Freddy took us on a 4 hour tour where we saw birds, including Toucans and Motmots, and as a bonus we also saw a sloth and one...

Though we did not stay in this hotel, my family recently spent a morning with Freddy looking for birds and other creatures in the Santa Elena area. We saw so many birds we would have missed without Freddy and his trusty telescope! He demonstrated his thorough knowledge of birds and wildlife throughout the morning, taking us to various spots where...

I like this hotel because it was very clean and very quiet for a great nights sleep. The bed and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable. Freddie and his family are very nice. Freddie runs guided bird tours and he goes above and beyond to make sure you can find amazing animals. I saw a sloth, and a Quetzel, and...

We were very pleased to stay at such a clean and "modern" hostel; the rooms being on a par with an economy motel in "the States". It is located outside of the bustle of the main streets of Santa Elena so was quiet and restful, while being a comfortable walk to the main streets for shopping and eating. Enjoyed looking...
