Staff is incredibly helpful. . .anything you want in the way of excursions, rentals, transportation, or general information they will take care of arranging at no cost (though the excursion via a separate entity will have a cost) Bicycles and surfboards, beach chairs and beach umbrellas are available for use at no cost. There is a weight room sharing space with the yoga studio that is not mentioned on the website and that was a wonderful surprise. Breakfast is amazing and the hostess is always present to assist you in planning your day. Rooms and entire grounds are extremely clean. Even the two cats which live on the property add charm. Hotel is a 2 minute walk to the beach via a private path. Lots of restaurants within walking distance, and the Tuktuk stand is less than 200 yds away for farther journeys. The only negative is that the roads are unpaved and can be rough or muddy during the rainy season but after the first day a seasoned traveler adjusts their footwear or transportation accordingly. All in all we would love to go back someday.

This is the place.
We had planned to stay 5 nights but were so taken with this hotel and Nosara that we ended up staying 9. Our room (the Eco) was clean, modern, quiet, and comfortable with a full kitchen. The property is beautiful and impeccably maintained with easy access to the beach down a private path. The included breakfast is generous and delicious. There’s a good selection of surfboards for rent (foamies, longboards, funboards) on site. Restaurants and stores are an easy 5 minute walk. The owners and staff are kind and gracious, happy to book surf lessons, dinner reservations, massage, etc. We will be back!

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!
