    We loved the place and the location. Staff is super friendly. Nice size hotel. You can chill at the pool, practice your yoga or get to the beach and all the restaurants are walking distance. We had a great time and would go back.

    The design and flow of the entire property is done very well down to the very last detail. I enjoyed the pool, and the upper deck where yoga mats were provided for yoga in the morning. I also enjoyed the filtered water they had through the property.

    La cama hacía mucho ruido, con solo movernos sonaba mucho. El colchón muy bien y las almohadas también. El resto de las instalaciones excelentes.

    Had a wonderful stay here, in the shared rooms. Everything was clean, and well taken care of. There were so many places to relax, outside of the rooms, including the pool area and shared common areas. The breakfast was delicious, and from my understanding is unique every day with some variation of fresh fruit and eggs. Everyone who worked there was so helpful and kind. Also, as a single female traveler I felt completely safe and looked out for here. The staff knew everyone's name and face within hours of arrival, which I found not only welcoming but comforting. I was only here two nights and wanted to stay longer!

    Decent spot in Nosara

    Check in: Hotel grounds are stunning. Beautiful architecture/ design, gorgeous pool, & a laid back vibe. So laid back, in fact, that no one was at the front desk for an entire hour when we arrived (even after we called ahead). Room; The basic room was small & cramped for two people. Little closet space and no mini fridge (important if you want to take chilled beverages to the beach). The bed was nice and the sheets were soft and clean. If you’re traveling with more than 1 person, I’d recommend booking a more spacious room. The owner helped get me extra hangers and fixed our broken safe which was appreciated. Bfast: Delicious and convenient breakfast and coffee greet you every morning. Fresh juice, fresh fruit + a hearty bfast option! Service: Our delayed and clunky check in experience characterizes the level of service fairly well. Service is not what you’d expect from a standard hotel/concierge. More like a small bar/check in area that may or may not be staffed at any given time. When they are staffed, they may or may not be helpful, for example, when I asked if they could chill a bottle of wine for me that I was planning to take to go, they told me they could not because if they let me chill my wine in their fridge they’d never sell their own wine. Disappointing since our room did not have a mini fridge or ice bucket. Location: centrally located. 10 minute walk to the beach. 10 minute walk to little Italy. Other: Bfast, WiFi, and parking were free

  • 2,0.Poor

    This is not a Hotel, it is a Hostel charging 250 usd for a room that should not be more than 100. There is no service at all at the property, just one unfriendly person at the front desk that every time you go ask for something (forget about calling, you just have to walk to reception) she acts as she were doing you a favor. There are no fridges in the rooms, no minibar, no blackout curtains. Breakfast is made to order, and includes an undrinkable coffee and half a glass of a non-natural juice. Don't ask for more. Also, no food at all at the property (lunch, dinner, or whatever you need you have to go outside). This is a trap for americans/australians. Again, for 100 a night it's ok, but it is million miles away from a 250 nightly rate.

  • 6,0.Good

    The hotel is small, relatively new and very nice. The pool is the perfect place to rest during midday, when the sun makes it impossible to be elsewhere. The room has an amazing bed (we stayed in the king size bed room) with perfect confort. Bathroom works fines and is very moderen. There is no space to store your stuff, only a few hooks, that won't be enough for a couple staying a couple of days (this is an easy fix for the manager). The breakfast is included, but is not good, you only have one option and not much flexibility every day. You only get half a glass of juice and if you dare to ask for some more.... staff won't be happy... I don't like buffets, but at least, when I pay $250 per night, I expect some more juice... The local staff (gardener and security) were great, very helpful and kind. The international staff were not very happy to please you or accomodate to your needs... So, if you are planning to surf in the morning, get your food elsewhere and sleep well, this is a good option. If you like a one shop stop, go to the Gilded Iguana Hotel (has a restaurant). If you don't like surfing, don't come here.... this hotel is not for you.
