And the beautiful location L'Acqua Viva Resort And Spa in Nosara is like a paradise. Many pools, beautiful buildings and .. No people. Its an empty town. Nobody at the pools. Nobody at breakfast. Nobody at the enormous restaurant. Ever. Once. I sat here working from 0700 and many hours each day - and at the evening.. And I saw... More

L'acqua Viva Resort is one of the most luxurious hotels at Playa Guiones in the Nosara area of Costa Rica. Built all in tropical Bali-style, the look is exotic. The abundance of pools, fountains and water mirrors around add to the tranquil atmosphere. The resort can be an oasis of peace for relaxing. The reception staff was friendly and helpful.... More

Great place to stay if you are looking for an upscale relaxing place close to Playa Guiones. The hotel is beautiful and well maintain. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The pools and gardens are very nice. The hotel is only a five minute drive to the beach, not bad taking in consideration that there are no hotels at... More

It wasn't that the service was bad, nor that the food was bad, nor that there's is no spa, that the training room is abandoned, nor that the chairs by the pool have seen better days. It wasn't the fact that the hotel lies next to the main dusty road and therefore not possible to sit outside of your room... More

There were only about three tables with people at them and we still had to wait for a long time to get our orders taken. It then took a very long time for... More

If you are looking for an upscale place to stay while surfing the great break located at Playa Guiones, this is the place to stay. Although you must have a car to get to the beach from this resort, it is only a short drive. This place has a great staff which made our stay here memorable. There is also... More

Stayed here for 4 nights while in CR for a friend's wedding. We didn't utilize many of the amenities, but really enjoyed our stay here. Probably one of the more luxurious places you can find in Nosara.

Dear travelers, it is with the most profound sense of disbelief and disappointment I am writing this review. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone.
