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.

My wife and I just returned for a brief stay after being here a few weeks ago. I just wanted to comment and thank the staff for their courteous, attentive, and accommodating service. I am reluctant to list names because I do not know them all and will be leaving some out. The entire front desk staff (I do remember Takvor,) the dining and kitchen staff, and the parking assistant were always available to help with any request or need. There was never the slightest delay or hesitation. You know you are a welcomed guest because Manager Ayala Dekel will stop whatever she is doing to make sure that you are enjoying your stay.

We stayed there for 3 days after 7 days at another hotel nearby. Great location, at the heart of Playa Guiones. Excellent service at the front desk as well as at the restaurant. The beach is 50 meters away - 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Rooms are very clean, beds comfortable, really nice pool and had a great stay. We definitely recommend.

This hotel has for the most part friendly staff and a decent location. It is not a luxury hotel, but rather an average US three star hotel, but charges luxury hotel rates. It has to make up its mind who it wants to cater to; families with small children or adults seeking a calm relaxing stay. The week we were there, (March), it was overrun by tons of noisy out of control kids and self-important adults conducting loud business on their laptops and phones in all the areas reserved for calm and tranquility. The pool area was completely overrun by kids with all sorts of play gadgets and playing all their games like canon ball and Marco Polo etc. The rooms surrounding the pool area have wafer thin walls and therefore all the noise from the pool and hallways is constantly overheard inside the room. Front desk was always friendly and helpful, but that is to be expected with the rates they charge. The food in the restaurant was good in regards to vegetables and fruit but mediocre regarding fish and meat. We found this to be true throughout all of Nosara though and not only for the Harmony restaurant. If you are looking for calm and tranquility, there are far better alternatives in Nosara. If you are there with young children it might be your choice.

Hey there! Thanks for your comments, and of course we're disappointed that you didn't fully enjoy your time with us. Indeed, this time of year we have a number of families that visit because of spring break in the states, so it can be more boisterous than usual. We'll continue to work on communicating that better ahead of time, and sincerely hope you had some happy moments here in Nosara!

This place is a true gem of Costa Rica. We had a wonderful stay in this single-story hotel, surrounded by jungle. The room was beautiful, spacious with lovely linen bedding and a large terrace with an outdoor shower, hammock, and comfortable seating area. There was not a single piece of plastic in the whole of the hotel. Even the wooden recycling bins were lined with paper bags. The rooms were spotless, the minibar best ever - with fresh juice and nuts and dried fruit. The breakfast was plentiful and excellent with beautifully cooked eggs and fresh fruit. The staff was extremely helpful and everybody went out of their way to help us. The concierge and the front desk were fantastic. There are daily pilates/yoga classes in a beautiful open studio surrounded by nature. The teachers are international but fantastic. An hour of aerial yoga was particularly inspiring. The beauty treatments are out of this world. The massages are fantastic, the staff very professional, kind and attentive. The pool is clean, the beach is 10 minutes walk away. We had beautiful bamboo bikes at our disposal and cycles around Nosara with pleasure. It is a safe beautiful place. This hotel has indulged all of our requests and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

We enjoyed 4 nights at this boutique hotel. Initially, we worried our bungalow number 12 was too close to the road, but when we closed the bathroom door and had AC at night, it was fine. The outdoor patio was great with two comfortable rocking chairs and table,outdoor shower, sofa, area to dry towels etc. and hammock, fan with big tree to enjoy visiting wildlife. There was a sofa and chair and desk in bedroom with small fridge. We were mainly in the room to sleep as we enjoyed walking the beach just steps from the property in the morning, the wonderful breakfast, yoga, the pool with comfortable chairs and shade, and sunset on the beach. We only dined at the hotel one night as there are great places within walking distance to explore. Fun, chill, friendly hotel.

I stayed at Casa Harmony in the Hotel Harmony with my wife for a week in January of 2022. I loved the resort and the house. Casa Harmony is not fancy, but everything worked. I rented a golf cart, not a car to get around. You will definitely need your own transportation around town. I drove to the hotel once or twice a day to go surfing. I recommend a trip to the nearby grocery to stock the house up with snacks. We made some lunches at the house. The only area for improvement was some confusion about access to the hotel. I found casa Harmony on Trip Advisor, where the heading says breakfast included. That is not the case. It also implied that a daily yoga class were included. That is also not the case. My wife ended up taking her yoga classes at the very nearby resort , Bodhi Tree and loved them. The staff at the resort is excellent . Friendly and helpful. I will return to this hotel

Thanks so much for your review! I'm sorry that we weren't more clear that Casa Harmony doesn't include the breakfast and yoga classes offered to guests who stay on the hotel property! Thank you for calling it to our attention and helping to set expectations for future guests at the house. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the other aspects of your stay and we'll be sure to pass along your compliments to the staff at the hotel. Warm regards from Nosara.

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..
