Stayed at The Harmony Hotel for three nights in March 2017. A contact there had recommended it and it did not disappoint. It is modest for the price, but the rooms and the grounds are thoughtfully designed. We were in room #3, which is perfect for a couple. It has it's own fenced in deck, the bedroom, which is appointed with modern, understated furniture and the bathroom which was stocked with lovely soap and shampoo. The snacks are even well-chosen. Especially nice was the path that leads directly to Playa Guiones, which was uncrowded and very clean. We saw a couple of turtles on our morning walk; folks riding horses and locals foraging for some kind of shellfish. The breakfasts at Harmony were simple and fresh. We enjoyed the fruit plate and the mixed fruit smoothies. The staff, in the restaurant and at the front desk, were super helpful and kind. It's an easy walk to town, many restaurants and to other beaches. Would love stay there again given the chance.

Room Tip: Our room, #3, was close to the restaurant and near the path to the beach.

I've been visiting KayaSol for many years and have always had the same experience- fabulous! It's a sweet oasis, right down the road from the beach for easy walking, bike (or in my case wheelchair) access to sunset and surfing. I love the pool with its waterfall, the kind attentiveness of the staff, and the food and drinks are great! I was super psyched to also see a dedicated wheelchair accessible bungalow with ensuite bathroom - right off the pool area! This hotel is always a thumbs up!

We stayed for 10 days at the Harmony Hotel. The location is perfect right next to a beautiful beach. If you are a couple or a family who are looking for a beach vacation with the added bonus of yoga, surfing (lessons available), mountain biking (great routes from hotel) plus tennis (calibri tennis club up the road) this is a great location.

The front desk team of Juan Carlos, Andrey and team will do anything to make your stay comfortable with a smile. The waiters are friendly and helpful especially Jesus!

It is a relaxed setting where you can go to breakfast barefoot if you want. So if you are looking for luxury this is not the place - but if you are looking to be completely relaxed in a chilled atmosphere with fresh, healthy organic meals this is superb!

The juice bar makes awesome smoothies, coffees, salads and juices throughout the day - not to be missed!

Final note - the hotel lodging it is expensive - so be prepared - but in my view it is worth it for the whole package! The restaurant on its own is one of the nest in Nosara.

Would stay here again without a doubt!

Room Tip: Pick the bungalows closer to the beach

Let me start by saying that we spent 6 days at Arenas Del Mar in Manuel Antonio before coming to the Harmony Hotel in Nosara. We had very high expectations for the Harmony Hotel because of our amazing stay in Manuel Antonio. The grounds of the Harmony Hotel are very lush and beautiful. That was a nice surprise!! The people are very nice at the hotel too.

The bungalows were a disappointment to my family. I thought they were going to be much bigger. It was like a small hotel room for 4 people with 1 bathroom to share. There was no where for us to put 4 suitcases and 4 backpacks. Our deck backed up to a dirt road that had cars and motorcycles going by at all times of the day. They had a green plastic type of fence put up beyond our deck so we couldn't see the road, but we could sure hear it! The deck had an outdoor shower, which we used every day, because there was only 1 bathroom. There was also a hammock and three chairs.

The rooms were a little dated and we found lots of bugs in our room. We know we are in Costa Rica, so we expected some of that. However, we had red ants every day in the bathroom on the floor, counter, shower, etc... We found a small scorpion on my son's shorts that were sitting in the corner on the floor. We also had a lizard on the ceiling for a couple of nights and several spiders.

Both of my teenagers got the 24 hour flu while we were in Costa Rica. At our hotel in Manuel Antonio the staff was very attentive to our son. We ordered tea and toast for him and they didn't charge us, because they just wanted him to get better. They also provided packets to add to water for free to help him with his stomach issues. They asked about him several times and brought extra tea to our room just for him. At the Harmony Hotel, we arrived with our sick daughter. We asked for toast at lunch and it was kinda tricky. They weren't sure if they could order it because it wasn't on the menu and we had to wait a long time. When we finally got it and they charged us $3.25 for 2 pieces of dry toast. There was no 7-up or Ginger-ale or bottled water available to order at the restaurant for her either. We were surprised that they wouldn't have anything like that on hand.

The walk to the beach is beautiful and easy to do for people of all ages. There is a place to put your surf boards and gear that is guarded by the hotel 24 hours a day. It is a great beach to surf and walk.

The town of Nosara is cute. There are several good places to eat and a few cute shops. We enjoyed our stay in Nosara, but we probably won't go back to this hotel. We were really impressed with the Largarta Lodge when we went there for dinner. The place looks brand new and the ground are beautiful.

Stayed: March 2017

I would love to stay here, unfortunately it was out of my price range and fully booked- and I'm not surprised why. Moments from the beach it's a little tropical paradise and what I can highly recommend even if you don't get a room here are the excellent facilities. Theres a great juice bar with a very nice hang out area and a fantastic spa which includes a beautiful yoga studio with a variety of classes to suit anybodies interests or level of skill.
