We are repeat visitors and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. The Hotel is nestled in the jungle, yet steps from the beach and where all the action is. The pool is gorgeous and surrounded by paths and gardens, which are visited by the local wildlife: howler monkeys, a huge resident green iguana, hummingbirds, butterflies and of course some domestic...

I'm so glad I chose Giardino Tropicale for my stay in Nosara. Spacialle and Enrique truly made me feel at home. My deluxe room was perfect and even came equipped with a hammock. All the natural wood used throughout the hotel and restaurant give this place a very special feel. The property is full of plants which attract butterflies and... More

Not only is the property perfect, relaxing, uncrowded, and mellow but the people who run the hotel are the best. Spacialle and Enrique are absolutely the best! They take care of your every need.

We stayed here with a group of students for a short term study abroad experience. We arrived late at night and were warmly greeted after a long drive from San Jose. Breakfast was wonderful, they even made homemade gluten-free bread for one of our staff with Celiac. Rooms were clean, the showers had hot water, and we even had monkeys... More

I really enjoyed staying at Giardino Tropicale. The couple that runs the property and all of the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is in a good location, about 5 or 10 minute walk to the beach. The AC in my room worked great and the bed was comfortable. They have an espresso machine that is free for guests... More
