“Planing my next trip already.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I am. Flight Attendant for a Major US Airline and travel to a lot of places and stay at a lot of different hotels. This was not my first visit to Nosara but it was my best and thanks in part, a Big part to these guys at Living Hotel.
Clean, Safe, Hospitable, Convenient, and Very affordable.
There were four of us traveling together, we had two rooms with the shared bath in between. Guess what, they have real water pressure. :)
Two of us slept in the Hammocks longer than their own beds, which by the way were very comfortable.
The Breakfast wasn't the Best and it wasn't the worst. It was included in the cost.
I could make some cheap suggestions to improve the Breakfast.
They have Surfboard storage. (Free)
The pool is nice and clean.
The front desk/reception counter is very helpful.
Cheap computer use, in case you forgot yours. Cheap phone call service.
The Sushi / Juice Bar opened the day we left, but it looks very good and promising.
Looking forward to that on my next trip.
The owners are out and about, very nice, personable, and willing to help with anything you need.

Don't pass this place up.

What a great vacation. The premises are a slice of heaven. An amazing pool, great rooms, awesome restaurants in close proximity, and the beach a close walk away. It just does not get better. I will be back.

Clean and groomed, lush and peaceful; the Living Hotel is an affordable and convenient place to relax and enjoy the Costa Rican jungle. Rooms are simply and tastefully decorated, and the beds are very comfortable! The pool at the Living Hotel is one of the largest and most lovely that I've seen in Nosara, and the main rancho provides a lovely spot to socialize, use the high-speed internet, read or relax. The hotel is very desirably located in the "G" section of Playa Guiones, less than a ten minute walk from the main beach, a well-stocked convenient store and several good bars/restaurants. The spa and surfboard storage room are definite bonuses, as are the frequent visits from the local howler monkeys :) I would highly recommend this hotel to friends and family, and I hope to visit again soon!

been staying all over nosara for ten years and dollar for dollar this place is the best. it checks all the boxest. close to beach, close to restaurants, close to provisions, yet still very secluded and private, clean, comfortable rooms and beds, beautiful grounds and common areas, breakfast and unlimited great coffee included, beautiful pool, quiet, secluded, securty boxes in rooms, mini fridge, surfboard storage, guarded gate, and all the amenities of a front desk concierge if you need something extra like a massage or a dinner reservation. we were very happy with the quality hotel you get for such an affordable price. our room felt more like a little private cabana or home than a hotel room. Thank you all for such a great stay. - Andrew and Emi

Room Tip: all the rooms are great.

I can say my experience at Living Hotel has blown me away! From the impeccable rooms to the included plentiful breakfast. The heartwarming staff made me feel so comfortable and at home. The pool and the amenities were more than expected. Can not wait until my next visit!

What a breath of fresh air this hotel is! The energy is amazing... the bedrooms are cozy, crisp clean. A stunning pool, a beautiful common area - makes it so easy to make new friends! We are head over heels for this place. Stayed twice and would come back again in a heartbeat! You can really tell everything was well thought through and done with love. Affordable - we loved staying in both a private room and one with a shared bathroom. The internet is fast and the breakfast is wonderful!!

Living Hotel fills a gap in the Nosara market which has long needed filling. A chic boutique hotel with everything you need for some R&R after a day in the surf. Reasonably priced, quiet and yet sociable (the communal breakfast is a great place to meet fabulous new like minded friends)...I can't recommend it enough. Don't go to The Harmony - go to Living Hotel!
