I stayed at this wonderful hotel for two months with my wife and five year old son. Bella Vista Mar has spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding rainforest from its perch atop a small mountain. Being that it is at the end of the road, it is very peaceful without the drive-by traffic that you get in other... More

The view is AMAZING! Just spectacular! Clean room, great service, friendly staff, knowledgeable management. Great breakfast every morning, fruit juice, coffee, omelette with rice and beans and toast, or banana pancakes were all delicious. There may have been other options but these were my favourites. Grounds were constantly maintained, pool was clean and a nice change from the rough waves... More

We stayed at this resort recently while travelling to visit friends. The staff were very friendly when they greeted us. The room was clean and comfortable - in better condition than rooms in 5 star hotels I've stayed in while visiting Cuba and the Dominican Republic. I stayed in the Marbella room. The view from the bed (when you have... More

When we arrived at this hotel the hosts were unfortunately called away on a family emergency, so we missed out on the hospitality it is known for. The view at this hotel is breathtaking. However the room was very basic and not especially clean. Being on the ground floor and with a large gap under the door we had lots... More

I'm sorry that we were not present to welcome you to Bella Vista Mar personally, and that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. Our rooms are traditional Costa Rican rooms with original artwork, they are not fancy, but they are functional. We encourage people to view the room photos on our website and choose one that they...

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
