The care that Miriyam & Marcel take in the running of their hotel extends into the community at large, with a demonstrable commitment to sustainable business practice. However, the hotel does not lack in amenities, most notably a saline lap pool long enough to satisfy the serious swimmer. With a great restaurant featuring a wood burning pizza oven, one need never leave, though the beach is an easy 5 minute walk, and town is another 5 minutes. After several days we left to explore other beaches, though quickly returned to Giardino Tropicale to spend the rest of our time in Costa Rica. We left having gained friends and knowing we have a warm welcome when we return to Nosara.
