Even the locals say the harmony is the place to stay. You can walk out the back of the resort onto the beach, there is a security guard there to watch your stuff. The sunsets are a daily event with everyone in attendance. The pool was clean, warm, deep and quiet. With drink and food service and the occasional iguana.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon. I can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel and the location. 1. The beach is absolutely beautiful. The best part was that it was not saturated with tourists and hotels. No lounge chairs, buildings, and garbage to take away from it's natural beauty. 2. The Cabanas were so cozy! We... More

Seems everyone in Nosara talks about the Harmony. They have lots of luxuries that everyone can come and enjoy like the wifi and the awesome juice bar and restaurant, open air yoga classes . . . I was lucky to stay here for 5 nights. This place is super eco-conscious while providing all the luxuries you could need. Beautiful room... More

My writing partner and I were gifted a trip to Costa Rica and The Harmony Hotel was our last stop. It was the perfect way to finish our week-long trip. Nestled amid the lush green a short walk from the beach, it is like a calm sanctuary. "A short walk from the beach": don't let that deter you. No construction... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend back in November and it was wonderful. It's the epitome of simple-eco-luxury. We stayed in a 1 bedroom bungalow and it was quite spacious, with a king bed, a/c, large bathroom, mini fridge and private deck with outdoor shower. We chose the hotel because of its proximity to the beach (a quick... More

We enjoyed our stay at Harmony but do not feel the value is there for what they are charging. The bathrooms need to definitely be updated, they need to add a full mirror and more counterspace but we did appreciate the bed, which we had our best nights sleep for the trip at Harmony... Woulds stay again if we paid... More

I stayed at the Harmony this week and while it is a nice open-air resort, but for $300/night I would think they would have someone on staff to clean the pool. It was so full of leaves, dirt and bugs that we were not able to swim in it. The room was okay....small and pretty much just a bed and... More

Dear KrisPeanut, Thank you for your review. All feedback, positive or constructive is very important for us. We take it very seriously and try to improve. It seems like the issue with the pool really did not allow for you to have a great experience and feel like you received good value at the hotel. Most likely, this has to... More

Loved the Harmony, the staff was amazing and thought my experience was incredible. I was doing a "bucket list" type vacation, surfing. The hotel is located amazingly close to the beach and although not the high season, got in my own private surf lessons. I loved the waiters at the hotel they were exceptional and felt like I knew them... More
