Beautiful property with owners who truly care about their guests. The hotel has a private path to the beach and is very convenient to several restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. The apartment was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. Breakfast was included....delicious and filling!
Robbie, us6 night family trip

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moana. Not only was our room (the Eco) beautifully and tastefully decorates, but so clean. It was perfect for us and our two children. We didn’t use the kitchen to it’s full potential but it was awesome knowing we had a full stove, fridge etc. breakfast each morning was delicious and healthful, with enough variety for everyone in our family. One night the power went out and when we returned from dinner the owners had placed candles all around the hotel including beautiful lanterns in our room. Our children loved playing in the pool and we relaxed in the hammocks and on the outdoor couches in the covered area (even during the pouring rain). They have a private walk down to the ocean which is fantastic and beach chairs and umbrellas to take with you at no charge. The “fruity water “ as our children called it was such a nice touch available 24hrs in the kitchen/living area. It was all lovely. Everyone who works at the hotel is so hospitable and helpful - we can’t wait to return and we will definitely chose the Moana again and recommend it to anyone heading to Nosara. Sometimes it is stressful to book a place online, but I can assure you that if you book here you will not regret it.

Quiet, beautiful boutique resort
Moana is a lovely boutique resort; so serene, tropical, and nestled in the lush forest that leads to the famous Guiones Beach. The breakfast is delicious, full of fresh local fruits, and yummy omelet, great coffee! I wish we could have stayed longer!
