I'm so glad I chose Giardino Tropicale for my stay in Nosara. Spacialle and Enrique truly made me feel at home. My deluxe room was perfect and even came equipped with a hammock. All the natural wood used throughout the hotel and restaurant give this place a very special feel. The property is full of plants which attract butterflies and...

This makes me smile so much! Thank you for all of your observations, especially the live jungle at your doorstep and your description of the breakfast area. I'm grateful you got to enjoy my favorite room, staring at that Guanacaste tree where the monkeys hang out. And I love that you felt like you didn't have to do anything! Yay,...

We stayed here with a group of students for a short term study abroad experience. We arrived late at night and were warmly greeted after a long drive from San Jose.

I really enjoyed staying at Giardino Tropicale. The couple that runs the property and all of the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is in a good location, about 5 or 10 minute walk to the beach.

It is a great place to go and relax if you want or get to many of the other places in the area with ease. The walls to the beach with you board is short enough you do not want to drive. The upgrades linens are a welcome change. It is nice to have the extra pool towel.
