We stayed here for 2 nights and fell in love with Nosara. The actual room was cute and very spacious (we rented a studio w/ air conditioning!) and the pool was wonderful. The location of the hotel is central to everything (restaurants, a store that sells beer and surf lessons). We rented a 4 wheeler and were able to explore... More

Let me start with my disclaimer. If you are looking for a five star hotel/resort, then look elsewhere. If you are looking for a great place to stay on your surf adventure with friendly staff and a great restaurant, then stary here. My girlfriend and I spent the 2013-14 New Years at Kaya Sol and couldn't have asked for a... More

I just returned from a 10-day stay at the Kayasol Surf Hotel. Everything was perfect. The rooms are beautiful, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The pool is amazing with a gorgeous waterfall, a great place to spend time in the heat of the day, or anytime, including a moonlit dip. Best of all, the lovely staff couldn't make for... More

Thanks to everyone there at Kaya Sol, Our trip would not have been good without all your help calling taxis and helping us find things to do. I am full of joy just thinking of you and how kind you all were. The last day the gardener took time to cut us up a coconut (no small task) they are... More

Great location. The hotel is a short walk from the beach, lots of restaurants around and there is a mini grocery store nearly across the street. The pool isn't heated and can get pretty cold, so the kids didn't splash around for long. The cabinas are close together, but it doesn't feel cramped because the grounds have tons of tall... More

Very happy that we chose to stay here - we had a room booked at Gilded Iguana across the street but the rooms here were much, much better than what we were offered at Gilded Iguana. We stayed in two rooms, Arco Iris and a suite, and both were fantastic. The first room, Arco Iris, was small but had two... More

We stayed at KayaSol with a large group for more than 10 days. Everything was great, the staff and especially the receptionist Susy was very helpful and nice to us. There were small technical problems because it was right at the start of the season but everything was sorted withing couple hours. The rooms were clean and the food in... More

A friend had stayed at this hotel and recommended it, and he was right! Very nice place. We had reserved suite #3 for 4 nights but when we decided to get there early, we got the cabina fria for the 1st 2 nights as our suite was taken. Staff is very friendly, property is well maintained and very clean. the... More
