Our room was really comfortable and the view down to the sea over the steaming jungle was simply spectacular. We enjoyed the charming atmosphere and Alexa and Jolanda made us feel very welcome. Thank you.

My friend and I stayed two nights at Bella Vista Mar. The room was clean, comfortable and had a great view of the sea. Great pool. Breakfast was freshly made and was delicious. It is set at the top of a hill and walking to and from the beach could be difficult for some. Alexa was a lovely host and... More

We liked the hotel a lot. Clean, friendly, quiet and great breakfast. The swimmingpool was nice. We had a rental car own car, taking us up and down the hill/to the beach. Bella Vista Mar with Alexa did remind us about the movie "Mamma Mia". We sure enjoyed it!

My husband and I had a very comfortable 8 night stay at Bella Vista Mar. Room was very clean and comfortable. Location is great if you want an "away from it all" vibe without actually being remote. Alexa, the owner, is very nice and knowledge about the area. Tasty home made breakfast daily. Do call and ask for directions!

I have been to Costa Rica many times and Bella Vista Mar is a beautiful place indeed. Clean, great views and sunsets but overall, I felt like I was staying at someone's house, like a bed and breakfast perhaps, and less like a hotel. It's very nice to be out of town on the hillside, but the commute into town... More

Hi Road Trip Girl, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review for us. We are definitely a bed and breakfast - not a hotel, so the fact that you felt like you were in our home is not a bad thing. We don't have a bar or restaurant so it is quiet up here - just... More

I went with my wife in 2012 and we fell in love with this hotel. It is totally beautiful, the cleanliness, the quietness, the decoration, everything. It's located up in the hills (you need a car or a truck to go to the beach), so the view is AMAZING. The sunset left us speechless. You were able to hear the... More

This place is a little piece of paradise! Nosara is beautiful in and of itself, but this boutique hotel was so quaint and charming with incredible service. Alexa was there to answer any and every question we had with awesome recommendations for dinner. The hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the beach. It was instant relaxation upon... More

This is the place to stay if you go to Nosara. We stayed in the room called Marbella, with a great view over the Pacific. Nice and clean with a large bathroom. We were here to relax so we didn't have a car and it's not a problem to walk down to playa Pelada, it takes about 15 minutes. There... More

We LOVED our stay at Bella Vista Mar! Very nice view, clean rooms, friendly host who's always pleased to give us helpful information about Nosara's best beaches, restaurants, etc. This is just the best place for a girls getaway. At the menu: green smoothies in Nosara, yoga in the jungle, massage with the sounds of the rain, boogie boards with... More

The moment I stepped onto the grounds of this B&B, I knew I was "home"! : ) I had originally booked a two week stay, which then turned into a two month stay! I believe almost every room has an ocean view, but my room not only had what I believe the best view ever, but it also had this... More
