KayaSol is like a home for us. We love it. We traveled hear as a family and had the most amazing experience. My family consisted of my 61 year old mom, my 7 year old and 13 year old daughters, my boyfriend and I. We all loved this hotel. Everyone at the hotel welcomed us. The staff was amazing. The...

The hotel is in a good location only minutes walk from shops, restaurants & the beach. We stayed in their hostel-like dorm. I believe they have 2 available. Our one had 5 beds available which luckily we shared with lovely people which saved the experience. The cleanliness of the room wasn't great. The bathroom was even worse. Really grubby, rubbish...

This is our 2nd time at the Kaya Sol Surf Hotel, and we are planning to go back next year once again! This place is amazing. The people working there are nice, the food is great and only 3 minutes of walk from the beach with awesome waves. We had some trouble with sink once, and 5 minutes after telling... More

We booked our reservation at KayaSol after it was recommended to us by two different friends. We had heard GREAT things. We arrived and were reluctantly placed in a private room that was the other half of the hut that the reception desk is located in. We would have preferred to be placed away from the road and check-in area.... More

We are so happy that you visited us! Our business thrives on word of mouth referrals like you! Cabina Fria which you stayed in is our "economy" room which we are proud to be able to offer for budget travelers. Having a wide array of travelers is one of the qualities that make our hotel unique because everyone has something... More

As stated by other users: I'd like to begin by stating that this is not a five star hotel/resort, and if you're interested in that type of lodging, there's other great options in Guiones that serve that exact purpose. That being said, if you're on a tighter budget but still want good, clean, and close accommodation to the water, this... More

My boyfriend and I traveled with another couple last week. Kaya Sol was the perfect place to stay. For the great price we had comfy beds, the water pressure in the shower was great and there was plenty of hot water. We stayed in an upstairs suite with no AC and had no complaints. With the fans going and the... More

We just returned back home from a week in Nosara. This trip was our second to the area, and each time we stayed at KayaSol. It is difficult to find the right words to explain how incredible this place is. Not only is it a stunning environment and a short walk to the beach, but it is a friendly space... More

Our first trip to Nosara was better than we expected, mainly because of KayaSol. You've got a 3 minute walk to the beach, outdoor showers, a pool, and plenty of shade to lounge in after a surf. The hotel's restaurant was steps away from our room; busy around dinner and rightfully so, many a delicious meal was enjoyed there during... More

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
