If you want to surf this is the place. American owned, closest place to the best beach in Costa. Just a 3 minute walk to the most consistent waves on the west coast. Good place to stay, reasonable prices with food options near by including great restaurant on premises and mini market across the street.

Not being sure I want to expose the area to more travelers, I'm writing this review reluctantly. As with anything people need to gauge their expectations. If you need to be in the 4 seasons go there. If you want to surf every day, all day, relax eat good food and not experience harsh localism, it's hard to find a... More

We stayed two nights and the place was great. Very clean rooms and cool place to hang out and drink a beer after a long session in the ocean. Off season (May - November) rates are pretty good, peak season rates (December - April) are not so good. Location can't be beat.

I stayed at Kaya Sol for 15 day in March 2012. I had a poolside room there. It was cleaned almost every day and had everything that I needed for my surf trip to Playa Guiones. The food at their restaurant was great and I highly recommend the salads with fresh fish on them. My favorite was seared Ahi salad.... More

So close to the beach, many good restaurants, the "mini-super" for groceries... the location is epic. Staff is friendly, the on site restaurant is very good, and there is a pool with a unique slate bottom that keeps it cool even in the mid day heat! They offer accommodations for all price ranges, from hostel beds to large private rooms.

Our room was pretty basic. Typical cheap room in a surf hotel. I thought we had A/C but only a fan - no biggie but pretty smoking hot during our stay. The restaurant was good and the pool area was nice but small with only a few loungers. Nice ambiance overall. Do not stay here if you need things to... More

Stayed with my son for two nights and we really liked it. It is definately great value for the price with a lovely pool to cool off in. The food at the restaurant is superb and great value with nice sized portions. It's in a great location and very close to the beach.

Simple rooms/houses that are clean and with various options re:air con, bedding arrangements etc. We stayed in 3 of their rooms (because we were indecisive about moving on and always booked our next night too late - our fault, not theirs), all of which were as described and quite clean. On the first night they did screw our booking up... More

Stayed with my girlfriend at Kaya for a week. Super noisy, terrible beds and absolutely no comfort. You feel like you have been scammed for your money. I would not recommend this place to anybody, except you are going only for partying. Overall a terrible place to stay.
