    Can’t Wait to go back!

    I absolutely loved Elan at Ballena Beach and have already recommended it to a few friends. There weren’t a lot of reviews online so I was worried before we arrived. I couldn’t believe how nice it was! We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo. There are 3 pools, a hot tub and short walk on a boardwalk to the beach. The beach has a lifeguard and they have a ton of beach things- boogie boards, Sup, kayaks for guests to use. Our 5 year old loved playing in the pool (which has a shower and gril) and the water was safe for him to play in at the beach in July. Our condo was spotless and was so comfortable. It is outside of Uvita and Dominical so I would recommend this for people looking to relax, not a party place. I can’t wait to go back!

    Excelente lugar.

    Un lugar excelente, pero no es hotel, es como un condominio, no hay restaurante en el complejo, pero en la zona hay muchos restaurantes , eso si el lugar está completamente equipado, no falta nada.
