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 made new friends that I will never forget and enjoyed the yoga with Kellie. Costa Rica gets in your blood, no matter what season, you... More

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. I traveled as a solo female and staying here has its challenges for that. Especially a solo female who is terrified of...I'm terrified of snakes. Luckily I DID NOT SEE ANY, but there are... More

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

I had a lovely and relaxing stay in the casita at Nosara Retreat in June. It's about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Maybe 15 or 20 to restaurants and bars. The owners and staff are kind, gentle and accommodating. They help you get to town if you need something and really they'll help with anything. Great people. Lovely... More

I came to Nosara Retreat after experiencing almost drama at my previous hotel. It was like taking a bath in a natural hot spring and it washed away whatever tension I carried from my previous experience, and that was just staying there. I can imagine taking one of the clinics must be even more amazing. The place is built in... More

I stayed with a friend back there in mid april 2014. We were looking to relax and chill out. Guess what...this place was perfect for that.

I stayed here in March with 2 friends, and we loved our experience. The staff is very friendly and are close with the local community, so they told us all the cool hang out spots. They also arranged a personal yoga class for us!
