We 3 ladies just spent 3 nights in this pension. First up I must say the staff are a great asset to this establishment, even if the rooms were not up to standard (and they were) the staff were so nice, helpful and happy that...More
We stayed for 4 nights at the Santa Elena Pension. Everything was very good, the staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast at taco taco is good (try it any other time also!) and the room is simple but nice. The only thing that I...More
Although not a guest at Pension Santa Elena I can highly recommend the attitude, helpfulness and all round good character of the staff and the establishment. I was unfortunate enough to have a dirt bike drive into the side of my hire car just outside...More
All rooms surrounded an interior garden that was attractive and had multiple uses. My room included storage shelving in the bedroom AND the bath. Where do you get these things in a hostel or many hotels? The shower was indeed the only HOT shower I...More
Really nice staff that was so helpful! Close to Taco Taco where we had almost every meal (eat there!). Located close to supermarket and ATM. Rooms and beds were okay. The kitchen is far from good though, it's the one thing they should improve!

The breakfast was provided in the attached food spot Taco! Taco! When I was there, there was a choice of fruit with yoghurt and granola and toast or tacos with eggs. Both were reasonable. I am a vegetarian and so I had both on occasion. They have free coffee all day.
As the other respondent said, the shuttle is not free, but I can't really imagine it would be as Santa Elena is way up in the mountains. A resort close to the airport could have a free shuttle theoretically, but I never saw any free shuttles really. There are plenty of transportation options for tours and activities. Sometimes the place that you get the tour will send transport or the kind folks at the pension can help arrange things for you.
