Everything was perfect. The proximity to the beach and main road was great cause I was here with my senior mother. The staff were definitely the nicest, most fun, most friendly staff I’ve had on a holiday in a long time. What a sweet group of guys! They had great food and live music one of the nights. We had a room with 2 beds, the big bed was super comfy, the small bed was extremely firm. Very clean and nice pool

We had a great stay at the hotel. Hector at front desk was such a great and informative host and helped us a lot throughout our stay. Food was excellent as well and we enjoyed playing pong and foosball at the bar in the evening too.

Casual and comfortable vibe - didn’t seem pretentious like other hotels in the area. Less yoga-centric. Very clean, staff extremely pleasant. Restaurant on site was excellent Mexican food, good variety of breakfasts (included). Pool and community area great, with others travellers sharing information about Costa Rica. Entertaining wildlife. Close to beach, shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend to friends and family.

The Sunset Shack is small and has everything you would need in Nosara. The rooms are spacious and clean and include a small kitchenette. There is a nice open air restaurant on site. Many extras were available, pool set in a pretty garden, foosball table, ping pong, hula hoops. The location is close to the beach, surf rentals and lessons, small market, shops and restaurants, yoga facilities, language school. The hotel itself feels fairly private. Staff was always friendly and helpful.
