Best hotel in Costa Rica for the price
One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at and it was very cheap. We stayed at 6 hotels in Costa Rica and for the price this was by far the very best. The beach was amazing too. We will stay here again in the future.

The place is very far away. Other than that it's absolutely fantastic. Service is great, property, views, rooms, beach. All is great

Pictures are not the reality of the condition of the hotel. Staff is very limited. No ice machines or ice bag available even for purchase to customers. One day we did not get our free water bottles replaced so we called at night and got charged $24 for a few bottles of water. Entrance to beach is not well mantained coming from the pool. I was surprised to see how dirty the beach was, so sad.

Most gorgeous hotel and best service!
WOW- one of the most gorgeous places we have ever stayed! Everything felt brand new and spotless. Definitely a five-star Resort in American Standards. We had a 2 story Villa. The second story was an entire upstairs Suite (with a separate bathroom and shower and huge closet) and balcony for my husband and me. Huge comfortable king bed, TV incredibly High vaulted ceilings gorgeous! Downstairs our two daughters shared a pull-out sofa which they said was very comfortable. A second bathroom with a great indoor- outdoor shower. We had a kitchen where we could make pasta and a full size fridge. Definitely make sure you bring your own food and drinks because there is nothing within 20 minute drive. You have a breakfast included that was absolutely spectacular. But the rest of the meals you'll have to pay unless you bring something. The pool was awesome and it had a swim up bar. The beach is literally right there and you can walk to it and see it from your room. You can get in it and it's so warm but no real surf, but there is a beach you can drive to for families to hang out in. There was a gym. The biggest drawback is the road to get there. But regardless of where you go in nosara all the roads are terrible so you just kind of have to get over it in order to enjoy these places. We really can't say enough about our stay there we loved all of the people working and the food and the entire experience. Enjoy you will not regret it!!!!
