Garza Hotel was our 4th stop on our Costa Rican Road Trip. We picked this place because we wanted something away from touristy areas, & we wanted to FISH. Juri, the owner, took my boyfriend fishing in the morning, & Guido took us both fishing in the evening, where we caught a huge red snapper. The hotel was perfect... the... More

Juri is a charming man who has brought his talents from Italy to Playa Garza. He's opened a very quaint hotel that's situated right across the street from an extremely picturesque beach. Unfortunately we weren't able to stay at the hotel this trip, but we still got to experience a wonderful dinner. We decided to order the house special, fresh... More

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight on our way to Samara. Playa Garza is one of our favorite beaches and we decided to spend one night of our trip down the coast at Hotel Playa Garza. We couldn't have been more pleased. Juri & staff truly make you feel welcome. Our room was clean and comfortable. The... More

Had a great time here. Juri & staff were all great & entertaining. Food was exceptional. Chef prepared fresh caught fish for dinner. This is a very simple place, not a Ritz Carrolton, but that's what made it fun! Beach is right across the street.

We stayed here for 5 nights while spending our days surfing in Playa Guiones. Juri and Guido not only made us feel like we were guests in their own home, (playing guitar with our son, waiting on us at the break of dawn, letting us celebrate a birthday with them), but they also cooked us quite possibly the best pesto...

We stopped here for a pizza while driving the coastal roads between Samara, our home base, and Nosara area beaches. Juri makes a delicious thin-crust pizza and it would probably be in our top ten of pizzas all-time. And THAT is saying something. Juri hand tossed the dough and then we decide to strike up a conversation with the pizza-maestro.... More

Yuri and his team were extremely welcoming and really made you feel like it was home away from home. Food at the restaurant was delicious, whole place was very clean and comfortable. Rooms had air conditioning and shower with hot water. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely stay again next time we are passing through.

As a part of a volunteer program, I stayed at this beautiful hotel with 21 other teenagers who did service work along with adventures during our stay in Costa Rica. I cannot even begin to explain how amazing this hotel truly is. You get to know all of the staff and become apart of their family. The food is so... More

We arrived at Playa Garza Hotel at night with 4 adults and 6 kids! Juri had everything ready for us in advance. Great access to the beach and excellent local flavor. Very laid back atmosphere and excellent pizza. Big thumbs up.

We stayed here for 2 nights in the middle of our trip. This was a simple, super friendly hotel across the road from the Playa Garza beach (which at one point we were the only ones there). We loved the intimate atmosphere and the freshly made Italian food! We also loved the location as it was in between Nosara and... More
