Bella Vista Mar was a great find for us! The property was beautiful, the breakfasts were delicious, the beds were comfortable, and the caretaker Alisha was very accommodating and helpful. The area is better suited if you have a vehicle. It was close to beaches, activities, and the towns. We fell in love with the local town of Guiones! If...

First of all the staff was excellent. I want to give an extra shout out to Alysia for all the wonderful things she did for us while we stayed there. Also the manager Alexa was more than accommodating. Their personalities were pleasant and caring. The hotel serves a great breakfast. Their speciality is banana pancakes which my husband loved. I...

This was my first yoga retreat and first trip to Costs Rica. The owner and her staff were exceptional in arranging daily activities, calling a tuk-tuk and preparing delicious meals. Our room was on the upper level overlooking the pool. We had a large porch adjoining our room which was the place to watch the sunset or take a siesta....

A sacred, sanctuary tucked into the hills with ocean views. Warm, genuine staff with experience in hosting groups that practice yoga or other healing modalities. We brought our group of 14 people here for a 6 day retreat. Some of our most cherished moments were laughing around the meal table with a gorgeous, open-aired experience and delicious food. An amazing...

A real heaven when you've just traveled all the north under a crazy sun : the host is very welcoming and still discreet, the breakfast is perfect, and the place is just fantastic! Only thing that could be better: the bed is a bit hard to stay many nights. Anyway, I warmly recomend this place!

Recently stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a 2-week Costa Rican holiday. I wish we had stayed at the Bella Vista Mar for longer. A most comfortable, lovely, scenic, friendly establishment. Set high on a hill with sweeping ocean views, this small-to-mid size inn was beautifully decorated, our room was quite large, the host and other staff...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few nights while visiting Nosara and it was amazing! We stayed in the Samara room (main building, upstairs) and the ocean view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful. Alexa was very helpful, whether it was with local advice or directions, and always made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was delicious every morning...
