Lovely hostel feel, with a bit more luxury. Very helpful and friendly managers, good breakfast and very nice restaurant attached. They even cooked fish we'd caught at little cost. Would definitely recommend it.

This is a great place to stay in Nosara. Spaciele and Enrique are kind and welcoming hosts who will make you feel connected to the area like old friends.

What an amazing place! The property is gorgeous, and the rooms are immaculate and have everything you could want. I loved our porch where we could sit and watch the world go by. The pool area is fabulous and the beach is an easy walk away. The area is much nicer than neighbouring Nosara, and we preferred the look of...

Clean rooms, wonderful staff and food. Very helpful and friendly staff. Area has a beautiful beach close to resort. (7 minute walk ). If you want to see the Sea Turtles and experience the beautiful people of Costa Rica, this is the place. Yes, the road to the area is challenging, but part of the joy and experience.
