KayaSol was a perfect "home away from home" while experiencing another country. We were able to enjoy the beach (just a short walk from our room), surfing (lessons were all arranged by the hotel), local restaurants within walking distance and just a good old relaxing!

KayaSol was a wonderful place to stay. So cozy, and beautiful, our bungalow had a screened porch and lime trees for the picking! Everyone at KayaSol was relaxed and friendly, the housekeeping staff was available and efficient. The food and atmosphere in the restaurant made every cup of coffee and Tico breakfast special. Freddy the taxi driver met us with... More

I spent 9 days at Kaya Sol surf hotel. The staff was super friendly, the on site restaurant had really good food and a lovely atmosphere, and the location (short walk to beach, short walk to town and market) was ideal. The rooms had a nice mellow vibe, not too stuffy but not too funky either. The set up of... More

My girlfriend and I rented a small room for 9 days while we took surf lessons and checked out the local beaches and attractions. The staff at KayaSol was very helpful and friendly and the kitchen makes a mean casado. I especially enjoyed the well cared for trees and landscaping that gave the hotel (actually a collection of small buildings... More

I escaped to Nosara and stayed at KayaSol with my best friend for 10 incredible days in a bungalow style room with two comfortable beds and private bath with a fridge and safe in room- ultimately perfect for a simple retreat into the magical Costa Rican beach environment. The hotel grounds are filled with lush plant life and exotic animals.... More

Booked a 3 night stay 5 months out; Hotel charged 68.25$ non-refundable deposit. Had to cancel due to travel changes. Charged another 20$ cancellation fee. Hence, 88.25$ lost for a 3 night cancellation 5 months out. Ridiculous. No help from owner when I called directly. Lots of places to stay in Nosara...please consider taking your business elsewhere.

Bungalow like rooms offering various sizes and amenities that are nestled among tropical plants and trees where you can see butterflies, frogs and howler monkeys. The beach is a quick walk away. There is a beautiful pool with a waterfall feature. A restaurant that serves delicious food, has fun wait staff and offers live music. The office staff, housekeepers and... More

I was a solo traveler backpacking my way down Costa Rica's Pacific Coast beaches. I stayed in KayaSol's dorm room, which is definitely a couple notches up from your typical hostel dorms. The room sleeps 4, and each bed is spaced out throughout the room. Sheets and towels are clean, and each guest has access to their own electronic safe... More

We stayed at the Beach House. It was a beautiful house with high ceilings, 2 spacious bedrooms, and a full kitchen with a kitchen island and a dinning room table. It was only a 4 minutes walk to the beach, which has great waves. It was located in town with other hotels and restaurants, a video store, surfboard shops, and... More

Over the course of a 10 day trip to Costa Rica, I varied the types of accommodations I booked with regard to price. In the case of Nosara, a friend who had lived there for a few years provided a list of hotel suggestions, and KayaSol Surf Hotel stood out as I did some further research. The place has it... More
