One of the Charming Nature Hotels of Costa Rica. We discovered Casa Romantica before Nosara was featured in the New York Times Sunday Travel Section. We have been back often in recent years. The last 25 km of the road is just as rough as ever, fit for 4wd, high clearance rent cars only. They airstrip is now paved for... More

If you are interested in surfing and don't want to spend a ton of money on lodging- Casa Romantica is the place for you. It is a lovely family owned hotel with a private path to the Ocean. In minutes you are at the renowned surfers beach at Play Guiones. The hotel grounds are very pretty and the staff led... More

We booked late on the cuff, but only stayed one night, glad to check out. Room 5 we took because it was more expensive and with A/C that was not a good choice. Smelly [very] poor bathroom, old bedding, we were glad to get out of that room. A very Economy place if you are on a budget. I think... More

Location, location, location. If you want to stay near the beach in Playa Guiones at a reasonable rate, Casa Romantica is the place to be. I don't know if there is any lodging with a more direct route to the sand and waves. The garden is lush and there's no better way to beat the mid-day heat than by swaying... More

My husband and I are wrapping up a one week stay at Casa Romantica. We booked here at the recommendation of good friends who stayed here a few years ago. I'm so glad we listened because I doubt that we would have chosen this hotel based on existing TA reviews. If you are looking for an authentic family run CR... More

We go to this hotel once or twice a year on a surfing trip. Very short walk to a great beach. Rooms are basic but that is all we are looking for and the restaurant is one of the best in Nosara. Hotel and restaurant are both very good value and the service is exceptional and friendly. Looking forward to... More

This was my fourth stay. What I lie best is the small informal, almost family like feeling and friendly, caring staff ( Mari-Lou is the best!) The problem is, hotels have a life span - They open with gusto, flair, enthusiasm and excitement - Mature, then begin to fade. This hotel is in heavy fade mode. Upkeep and maintenance failing,...
