I can not say enough about the staff (especially manager Sally and front desk)!!! From them alone you should stay here. The airline lost my bags and they were so helpful getting them back to me. I needed a sitter one day and the managers lovely mom watched my 6 yrs old for 4 hours. We stayed in the apartment... More

The staff was welcoming and pro, and the place is 5 min from the beach. I rented a full house for myself and a friend for a very affordable price. I'll definitely book there again when I'm back in Costa Rica!

Can't say enough about this cute property. It's not luxury, but that's not why you come here. It's simple, but simple beautiful and special. The staff is so incredibly nice the private rooms all unique and the shared hostel is always a great place to meet interesting people. The vibe here is just perfect Costa Rica. The ocean is a...

What a cool place to stay! Short walk to the surf, rest in a nice room. We rented one with a full kitchen, so it was like a mini apartment. Relaxed in the pool and had numerous drinks and dinners at the restaurant on Surf/Yoga destination. Will return again!

This was my first visit to Costa Rica. It was a pleasant surprise and so very enjoyable. KayaSol is an excellent choice as the staff and environment is friendly and helpful if needed. Our room was one of the hotel rooms but the hostel rooms looked clean and comfortable as well. There is a short walk to the quiet beach... More

I have stayed in 5 hotels in Nosara, actually Playa Guiones. Fortunately booked the vacation a little late as it is high season. So one of the only places available was the casita at Kaya Sol. It turned out to be one the best values and a little home away from home, for the same price as just a room... More

Older, English speaking people drinking. If this is your thing, this is a place for you. The staff here all seemed very young and although polite, quite condescending. But that seems to be indicative throughout most of the Nosara area. My two night stay there is really a tale of two rooms, the first being a small room right behind... More

We stayed at KayaSol for 2 nights and everything was great. We got the studio apt w private bathroom and it included a fridge and safe for your valuables.
