We stayed at the Nautilus the first week of May 2012. We read the reviews and, believe me, this place lives up to it's excellent reputation. Small intimate hotel with spacious and airy rooms, clean, well equipped kitchen and a nice porch to enjoy that morning cup of coffee, fresh smoothie prepared in their restaurant, or bottle of wine. Loved the swimming pool, so refreshing after a day at the beach or exploring the area with an ATV. The cafe serves really good fresh, healthy food and smoothies (not open after 4:00PM). The hotel is a short walk from town with several very good restaurants, as well as a beautiful beach. Had a wonderful massage arranged by Adi. The owners are the nicest people and so accommodating. This was the last destination on our trip to Costa Rica and were looking for R&R, after hiking the rain forests, zip lining, and traveling within the country. It was the pefect ending to our 2 week trip to Costa Rica and we loved this area, it's beaches, and people. This area is a surfing haven for a very young crowd. We, on the other hand, are a couple 64 and 70 years old. It was great fun to "do nothing", enjoy the big waves, the surfers, and explore stunning, isolated beaches with our ATV rental (arranged by Adi).
