We were greeted with the grace of Deborah. The owner so instinctively kind and genuine. The second thing I noticed was that all the furniture and decor are handmade. Beautiful personally made paintings and hand carved tables. Only years of love and local relationships with the artisans could of created this privileged ambience. Breakfast of papaya and toast and coffee,... More

I loved the place I stayed at; kitchen with fridge and stove, living room, showerroom and bedroom. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast (included in the cost of the accommodation) was a perfect start to the day. Loved the outside showers; such a great idea after a trip to the beach which is only minutes walking distance... More

My husband and I were there for 3 nighs and the stay was amazingly perfect. This is like 5 minutes walk from the amazing beach. You are in the fresh breeze of the jungle, wich is great in this reallyr hot part of the country. Pelada beach is one of the most beautifull beach I've ever seen... Deborah is a... More

I spent the best week of my life here. Thank you to the staff and my fellow travelers for such a beautiful experience! The room was perfect and well cared for, the yoga and meditation was heart opening, and the nearby beach was perfection and never crowded. We woke up every morning to monkeys and birds, watched iguanas and baby... More

Firstly, thank you so much to Deborah, Theresa, and the incredibly kind and caring staff at Nosara Retreat who made my stay as amazing as it was. I stayed in three different rooms (Lemon, Butterfly, and Hummingbird) at Nosara Retreat over the span of 11 days and truly would have stayed longer if I could have. If you're considering coming...

Nosara Retreat was a perfect place for my first experience of Costa Rica, and for our yoga retreat. The staff was welcoming, warm and friendly, and consistently provided help in scheduling transportation, navigating the area, and useful details on things to do. The space itself is spectacular - as the rooms and outdoor studio are harmoniously built into the land... More

We stayed here for four nights in mid-December and had a wonderful stay. We were in the Papaya Room which has one double bed and one twin bed. Floor to ceiling louvered windows so lots of breeze and light in the room. You literally go to sleep at night to the sounds of the jungle! No road noise, nothing. Just... More

What a wonderful retreat. I stayed in #6 and was truly in the tree tops. The room was clean and tidy, hot water was plentiful. The staff was polite and helpful in every way.

I'm not much of a nature person and this was more in nature than I would've cared for. But having said that, I really enjoyed myself.

We are so happy you ended up loving Nosara! This happens to most everyone that visits. The garden setting of our B&B is very 'jungle-y' and lush, all the animals love to visit us and our guests. Thanks for staying with us - and an extended stay at that! Come see us again!! Pura Vida! More
