The Harmony Hotel is the perfect combination of low-key luxury, personal wellness, and authentic connection to the unique natural setting of the Costa Rican Pacific coast. Located on Guiones Beach in Nosara, the Harmony is a stone’s throw from a pristine surf break with consistent year-round waves, ideal for a surfing adventure for any level. You can bring your own board, or borrow one of ours from the surf rack on your way out to the beach. Our 24 guest accommodations—each with indoor and outdoor space—are nestled in lush gardens of native plants that afford plenty of opportunities for wildlife sightings. Two secluded 3-bedroom villas with private entrances offer the utmost privacy with easy access to the hotel grounds. The Harmony Healing Centre is designed as a place of restoration, nurturing and peace with a full menu of all-natural, handmade treatments and an open-air yoga studio. The on-site Restaurant and Juice Bar showcase the bounty of the region using fresh ingredients, and our large outdoor pool offers the perfect spot to lounge away a warm afternoon.

Really wanted to love this place. Beautiful hotel right on the beach in Nosara. Staff is very welcoming and kind. 

That said, despite it’s name, it is not at all relaxing. The hotel is overrun by small children and the pool is dubbed “the playroom” by some of the guests who are trying to take a relaxing vacation. The pool consists of floats, screaming, paddle boarding, Marco Polo and cannonballs...

It’s almost impossible to sleep past 6:30am when children start running around the hotel and screaming...

I love children but this is pretty unbearable and ruins the overall experience.

I’m here for 4 days and apparently there aren’t yoga classes today and there may or may not be yoga classes tomorrow...pretty disappointing for a place that markets itself as having daily yoga classes, juice bar, etc. 

Being a family-friendly hotel is a good thing but not when you advertise yourself as a relaxing and harmonious retreat...

Hey Michael, thank you for sharing your feedback so thoughtfully. We’re obviously bummed to hear your experience was not what you were expecting. Even though we are a family friendly hotel and there were indeed more kids than usual staying with us during your visit, we still want to provide a place where you can drop in, relax, and connect fully to this amazing place. We take your comments to heart and will use this as a chance to improve on how we can maintain a better balance for everyone at the hotel. Thanks again!

The Harmony Hotel is our favorite hotel in Nosara! The vibe is so nice and peaceful. The staff are amazing. The hotel is not overly crowded, and the guests that are there are lovely. The restaurant is delicious. The best peak of Guiones beach is right out front for surfing, and they have a quiver of boards available for guests! We can't wait to come back!

I stayed at this hotel long before it became The Harmony Hotel. We paid $15.00 per night many years ago when it was operated by a German Gentleman. Now it is overpriced and the Yoga clients are very unfriendly. If you surf, go somewhere else. Not a cool vibe at all.

Hey M1250VKronn, very cool to hear that you stayed at the hotel before it was Harmony!  The hotel changed hands almost 16 years ago (!!), so indeed a lot has changed during that time. You're right that the property used to be owned by a german fellow as a budget surfer hotel named Villa Taype. Among other things, there used to be a swim up bar located where our poolside palm garden is....so the vibe now is definitely different from what you probably remember :) If you happen to have any pictures from that time, we'd love to see them - you can email info@harmonynosara.com. Of course we're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay this time, and we hope that you find what you're looking for the next time you're in town!

Can’t say enough good about this hotel which we arrived at after a long dusty bike ride. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with a private patio and outdoor shower. The pool was great as well. It is about a 50 m walk from the beach and they have a security guard there during the day so you can leave valuables while you swim. Surfboards and boogie boards are available. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant, both with excellent..

Just left after five days. A really excellent place. Friendly, professional, and competent staff. Rooms are great. Complementary surfboards (don't say that very often). The food is very good but aimed at a certain market - if you want red meat with every meal, not for you. Not cheap but great value.
