We stayed for one week with a group and had a wonderful time. The views from the veranda are gorgeous and the beach is reachable with a short walk. The innkeeper and staff are excellent and the breakfast very good. The innkeeper is very knowledgable about surrounding area and helpful in setting up services like massage etc. There is also...

The view is truly incomparable, the owner & her staff are great, the breakfast delicious & the facility is very well maintained. Unfortunately, we slept very little there. The beds were like concrete, as were the pillows. There's no air conditioning & it was hot at nite. There's construction close by so they start work at the break of dawn... More

I'm very sorry that you were not able to sleep for multiple reasons. As you indicated in the balance of your review...we try to be attentive to the service that we provide for our guests. It is very difficult for us to make something right if you do not share your thoughts with us when you are here. If you... More

We really enjoyed our time at Bella Vista Mar. The view is absolutely superb, the pool really nice, the house and rooms comfy, the welcome friendly and the breakfast filling. It is a little out of the way and the access is not the easiest but you end up 10-15 minutes walk from playa pelada and a world away from... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in July and it was a heavenly piece of paradise. Stunning view of the ocean, great breakfasts, fantastic pool, clean, and Alexa was a wonderful and very knowledgeable hostess. We LOVED it!

Alexa is wonderful and so accommodating to all of her guests. Food was amazing too! Beautiful setting and you were treated like family. I highly recommend Bella Vista Mar! They are also very eco-friendly which I greatly appreciated.

This hotel has very nice views of the ocean. It is kept very clean and tidy. The ambiance is excellent. The breakfasts are excellent. Nosara in February is hot and dry. Bella Vista Mar (BVM) is located well above most of the extremely dusty roads around Nosara. Thats a plus. That location also means that you're relatively some distance away... More

Bella Vista Mar is a lovely little oasis just far enough away from the dust and heat of the beach area but not too far to walk and enjoy the beaches and surf. Clean and well kept this little hotel has the an amazing view of the beaches below. If the hotel itself is not lovely enough the staff is... More

My boyfriend I stayed at this lovely hotel for the 2 extra days we had in Nosara due to flight cancelations. Alexa was extremely accommodating and made us feel right at home. The property is really beautiful with radiant white, turquoise, and bright green accents throughout. Hummingbirds frequent the feeders that are set out near the pool area. Watching then... More

Alexa provides great hospitality. The hotel only has a few rooms and it is very quite and private. We used the shared kitchen a couple times, it is clean and well equipped. Of course there is a nice view as the name suggests. The pool is big enough for a couple laps and deep enough for diving. We saw monkeys... More

We traveled to the area for a weekend in the rainy season (October), and there weren't many places open. Found this place on Expedia for great price. Didn't expect much, but we very sooooo surprised. Caretaker was super friendly and helpful in places to see and eat. Room was very nice and clean and the view was great, even during... More
