After a lot of effort just trying to get ahold of someone here from abroad (no answer to phone calls, late answer to e-mails, etc.), José finally answered to one of our emails and even sent a confirmation one. Since we were so excited about our long-awaited vacations in beautiful Nosara, we did not care about the initial delay in... More

We had a very pleasant 5 nights here. The location is great for the beach at Pelada, much nicer beach than Guiones. Good ice cream 100m away, a nice shop opposite, and pizza and beachbar 300m. Best thing is the bigshady terrace with fans and hammocks, and the shared kitchen so you can make coffee and breakfast. No restaurant on... More

We've stayed here twice. The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. The patio and the property in general is totally charming and relaxing. The shared kitchen is big and well equipped. Jose is charming, friendly, and helpful. Couldn't ask for more.

Loved this place! Low-key, comfortable, shady, nice hammocks to hang out on. An array of tables to sit at and eat, spaced to allow for privacy. And most importantly - a communal kitchen (and clean, too). The whole place felt laid-back, yet grounded. Despite the communal kitchen, this did not feel like a youth hostel or party spot, which we... More

The Italian guys are great. Always making sure you have whatever you need, or helping you out with any questions you may have. They speak Spanish, English, and Italian, make incredible food, and are a lovely bunch of happy guys! Good location to the beach, and close to laluna for dinner at sunset! Would go back for sure :)

This is a very small hotel - five rooms for the public, I think. The Italian manager and his Costa Rican girl friend do almost everything, although there was an Italian chef staying and working there as well. Everybody was extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and all open onto a patio and garden that are very... More

A very nice place to stay! Far away from the hippie-town of "Guionnes". A 5 minutes walk away from the beach and another 10-15 minutes to the beach of Guionnes which is a very nice place for surfing. The owners are very helpful in every situation, know alot about the area and the things to do around. Also the restaurant... More

This tiny hotel is located at the end of an incredibly bumpy, rutted road. It took us almost an hour to go the 14 miles separating the hotel from the paved roads, but boy was it worth it! The two Italian guys that run the place make you feel totally at home. This remote area actually has pretty much everything... More

I cant speak to the hotel, but the restaurant was very good. We were made to feel very welcome and I felt as though we were dining in an authentic Italian home. Pasta Carbonara and the Iced Coffee were amazing!
