Yeah wow. The hospitality and ambiance of the space is amazing. Fantastic veggie gourmet, an amazing view, and an incredibly friendly crew. There are options every day to get a ride to one of many nearby beaches, perhaps a night on the 'town', or just stay and see what activity is planned for the night. Movies, dance, yoga, or conversation... More

This was my first trip to the land of Pura Vida and the CRYS epitomized in every way possible the stress-free, joyful way of life that the lucky people of the Nicoya peninsula so easily express. The Nicoya peninsula is one of the few global blue zones (google it)and Nosara is right in the middle of it. Everything at the... More

Pros: absolutely beautiful jungle setting, great food, friendly & caring staff, lovely communal living Cons: management constantly tries to sell you overpriced add ons, far from the beach (it's a hassle & expensive to get taxi), somewhat disorganized

Thank you for your review. We appreciate you mentioning our wonderful staff! We are not a beachfront property, perhaps you weren't aware of that when you booked your stay. Its unfortunate you didn't take advantage of our daily beach trips which are included in the price of every stay at our hotel. Taxis can get expensive, for sure. We offer... More
