Excelent place, very beautiful and well organized. The room is great, with air conditioning, frigobar and good space. The garden has cataloged species of plants. The owners, Marcel & Myriam are lovely human beings, friendly and attentive. The costs are fair, and the beach is 5 minutes distance walking. Excelent waves for surfing around...

A little pricey compared to other beach towns in Costa Rica but this is a pricier area in general. Cute grounds and the owners are nice and helpful. Rooms are basic w AC and fan though AC costs 15 more. Clean though ants on the floor but that comes w being on the beach Be prepared to be woken up... More

Hosts Myriam and Marcel have created a lush and very peaceful home away from home for myself twice over the past years. My room was immaculate, as were the grounds planted with vibrant plants, and tended daily by the gardener. Even though I'm not a pool guy, the pool at Giardino invited me to cool off in the hot afternoons.... More

Giardino Tropicale is a true gem. My 15 year old son and I stayed there for Spring Break. The owners, Marcel and Myriam, are beautiful souls who wholeheartedly welcome you into their sanctuary. You feel taken care of in every way; they are very generous with their time and were always ready to answer my questions. You feel you are... More

My wife and I & our boys (ages 8 and 3) just returned from a week stay at Giardino Tropicale in Playa Guiones. Myriam and Marcel were such welcoming and hospitable hosts who did a great job of providing a home-like, relaxing experience for us all. the units are not uber deluxe, but appropriate for the setting and well appointed....

Myriam and Marcel are the most wonderful hosts you could ever have. When I arrived Myriam and Marcel showed as much enthusiasm greeting me and showing me around as I had getting there. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, quiet, clean and just perfect for a vacation away from everything. It is a little paradise, with great saltwater swimming pool and... More

We just spent a lovely week (March 2 to 8, 2014) at the Giardino Tropicale in Playa Guiones, in the Junior Suite. Myriam and Marcel Schärer are gracious hosts who live on-site and work hard to provide their guests with a 'home away from home'. The hotel’s main building and nearby units are set back a few metres from the... More

Beautiful property! Had the chance to stay in the "tree house" type sweet (if you have the opportunity definitely stay there), it was amazing. The people who worked there were very friendly. Only complaint was refrigerator didn't work in the room, not a big deal though because we had one downstairs in the outside kitchen. And I was told from... More

We came here right after Christmas and stayed through New Years. It was a wonderful and very easy experience. Myriam was so helpful and welcoming as was her husband. We stayed in the Junior Suite which was very large and the best part is that you have a huge private balcony, which we spent a lot of time on including... More
