I heard the hotel is now being renovated and it will be opened this coming season. At one time this was the best hotel in Nosara and I am sure it will be that once again. The views and location are amazing. I look forward to the restaurant and bar opening as well. It will be a great addtion to... More

Let me start off by saying I did not stay at this apparent hotel. I found this place in December 2010, by accident. We were staying nearby at the villa canadiense and while walking all the way down the beach we saw this dr.suesian tower looming over the palms on a jetty of stones and jungle at the end of... More

Well, has tghe construction ended here yet? I stayed at the original Nosara Beach Hotel some 25 years ago. It was a stunning one building hotel with the fabulous views it commands. I stayed there again (for only 2 days) some 9 years ago. What had chnged? There was construction going on and the new rooms that were added some... More

The hotel Nosara is one of Nosara's oldest hotels, although it is no longer primarily a hotel, as much as it is the owner's private residence. If someone accidentally stumbles on it and finds an employee working on the grounds, they will allow you to stay there (it is not in the Costa Rican nature to say no to people)... More

Stayed at this hotel years ago. Really not much had changed. New folks running the place who were very nice and helpful. The view is the best and very convenient to the beach and surf spots. However, did I feel safe at night? No. The rooms are basically like barracks. Very basic with no luxuries. For the price there are... More

I agree with the prior reviewers who said that you will either love or hate this place. I have been to this hotel twice now, and I plan on going back in two weeks. I have lived all over the world, and I have to say that this place is a hotel that I will never forget. It is quirky... More

OK people, my husband and I are personally offended by this previous review that North Americans would have a problem with this hotel. This place is a movie set, period. Not a place to sleep. First let me tell you we have traveled the world from Mexico to the Middle East (I mean the deserts of Jordan not Abu Dhabi)... More

On our recent day trip to Nosara, my husband and I stayed for one nightt at Nosara Beach Hotel. I can only say that it was one of the highlights of our trip, I can say, however, that it would not be for everyone - love it or hate it. We paid $60 for the night, and we were the... More

Here’s my advice about this strange place. As long as you know what you’re getting into you’ll be fine. Inspect the room first and ask to be switched if you’re unsatisfied. We willingly stayed here for 2 nights and would have stayed longer if time permitted. The rooms are on par to some bad old motel in the US. By... More

I can't possibly disagree with those who called this place run- down and poorly managed. And even at the off- season rate of around $50 it was probably overpriced. But after going to Nosara several times previously and admiring the way this place sat atop its hill, I just had to try it out. I stayed for 3- plus weeks... More
