The friendly staff, great food, and relaxed atmosphere add up to pleasant memories every time we visit the "GI". Lots of good, live music helps too. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and affordable. The GI is located less than 1/4 mile from Playa Guiones, a most beautiful and surfable beach that is a safe, clean place to swim and surf. This is extremely convenient. The Nosara Surf Academy is also conveniently located directly behind the GI. You can rent a board there or take a lesson. The NSA instructors, Kim and Mark are cool professionals. The folks at the GI always make us feel welcome and staying at the GI is always a pleasure. Matt and Joellen are excellent hosts and with their trusty staff are like a big, happy family. I highly recommend the GI to anyone looking for good food, good company and good value.
