I traveled to Kaya Sol by my onesies with a group of other single travelers who were learning to Surf. The staff at Kaya Sol are all very friendly, but they work slow - Island Time. To some it may be a pain, to me it was a nice reminder that I am on vacation and should enjoy it!
The little huts around the pool are ideal to stay in. They are very small with a tiny fridge, some are without, but the sleep quality there is MUCH better than the hostel style rooms at the very end of the resort. Howler Monkeys hang out at the back of the resort and they will wake you up at 5am religiously!
The beach is about a 10 minute walk away and there is a surf shop across from Kaya Sol, so rentals are very convenient. There is a man on the beach who will sell you Pipa (Fresh Coconut Water) for a dollar. Well worth it!
Kaya Sol is steps away from a convenient store, spa's, yoga retreats and a couple restaurants. Nosara is very small and when I was there, the locals would come by to pay to use Kaya Sol's pool. To me, this was nice because I got to meet so many people!
If you don't know much Spanish, you will get along fine here. Luis is a wonderful restaurant manager. Just make sure you don't accept his wedding proposal. ;)
