L'Acqua Viva is idyllically situated in the middle of lush vegetation, bordering the extraordinary Forest Reserve and Wildlife Refuge of Nosara, at a short distance from the spectacular beaches of Pelada, Garza and Guiones, this last one considered a paradise for surfing. The hotel displays a genuine architectural style, which harmonizes with an exclusive decoration representing the fusion of diverse ethnic elements from around the world, creating a high end atmosphere and comfort to enjoy the tropics. Many of the spaces of the hotel will surprise the guests with carefully chosen pieces of art of well-known artists, which belong to a private collection.

We actually decided to honeymoon in Costa Rica because of L'acqua Viva Resort and Spa. We rented a car and drove out to Nosara from Juan Santamaría International Airport--it was about 4.5/5 hours but I highly suggest doing that as it added an extra layer of adventure and sightseeing to the trip! The moment we walked into L'acqua Viva Resort, we were greeted by the always friendly and attentive staff (with delicious fruity beverages). We were escorted to our room which was decorated just for us since they knew we were on our honeymoon. They even helped us book a canopy tour excursion one day. Superb staff, delicious food (we ate breakfast and dinner at the restaurant on site and the food was great!), gorgeous accommodations, abundant wildlife, beautiful beaches--I cannot say enough positive things about L'acqua Viva. We did not want to leave and certainly will be returning. Like I said, we came to Costa Rica just to stay here and it exceeded our expectations.

It is a nice hotel that allows a pleasant rest. Service and support from associates are very good. The variety of plants that adorn the hotel makes it much more rich and beautiful. I recommend it as a wonderful hotel not only for couples but family too.

We loved the Master Suite, it had a gorgeous view of the pool. Great breakfast, we ordered "Huevos Rancheros" and the staff is always willing to help with a great smile :) We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful getaway at L'acqua Viva Resort, a little off the beaten path but well worth the trip, beautiful people, delicious food, lovely rooms. I enjoyed my accommodations very much, the pools, the beaches, canopy (ziplining), eco-friendly grounds, friendly staff.

We stayed here at the recommendation of another smaller property owner. The facility was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and met our needs. We got the last room at the budget end of the spectrum and found the room itself to be very accommodating. Getting the last room the location was close to the road and a bit noisy on the balcony but still a nice stay. With the mandatory tax our room was $176.00 per night (and remember this was the low end room price). The place seemed to have many vacancies so I can only surmise this is due to the higher rates for the area. Suites and larger rooms started at $250.00 prior to the addition of the 23% mandatory tax. While the pools and facilities are very inviting, I could not see a reason to pay that much for this place. So yes, I would recommend this as a nice place to stay near Nosara, but think they are a bit pricey for what you get.
