We had such a delightful stay! Very simple, elegant, and comfortable. Our room and bathroom were well designed and decorated. If you want a tranquil place to stay with nature all around you, slightly removed from the raucous crowds this is your place!!

The atmosphere in Mahayana couldn't be more in tune with the awesome surroundings. We started our trip in Costa Rica in Mahayana and returned twice within our 5 week stay. Felt very relaxed and the outdoors kitchen is second to none. Great place to hang out, rooms are clean and there is a cool outdoors shower. Can't wait to go... More

Hi, I staid a few days in Hotel Mahayana begining of 2014 and my only regret is that I could not stay any longer :). The place is lean, the food is good, the host (and her dog) were very super nice. Francois

My fourth stay at the Mahayana in the last few years. The host, and the people staying at the Hostel style make it a cool little place. Out door kitchen is great and makes for a nice gathering spot. Rooms are small but I am okay with that. You have a small refrigerator, fan, air conditioning, large bathroom and great... More

... was the first thing I heard when I got there and I felt home immediately! Good vibes, nice place, what else to say! I'll definitely be back next year and come in low season with a bunch of friends (as there is only 6 rooms, it's easy to have the place private). THANK YOU MAHAYANA ;-)

What a great hotel, very clean, owner and staff are great. Rooms are very clean and the AC is super cold. Had a great time with the staff and guest one night, too much rum!! Driver arranged by hotel was waiting for us at airport, very friendly guy (Hector). Rooms are perfect, cleaning staff did a great job, and the... More

My friend and I had the most wonderful time staying at Hotel Mahayana-amazing value for your money. The place is really cute, great ambiance on the deck (tiki style, with hammocks, lounge chairs etc)-and our room was super clean and comfortable. We had a private room with 2 single beds-the room had a flat screen tv, a safe, a beautiful... More

I adore this hotel. The location is fantastic - a lovely quite spot yet only minutes from the shops, bars, restaurants and the beach. The rooms are great - cute and clean and with a ceiling fan, air-con, mini fridge, safe and TV. There is a outdoor kitchen for guests to use which we loved - perfect for cooking light... More

I stayed at mahayana with a friend for 5 days. We felt like we were at a friend's place. The room was not very large but it came with everything you need when on vacation (A/C, fan, fridge, safe, nice bathroom, and a TV). The common kitchen/bar area allows you to meet very nice people...At the end of the stay... More
