I took 3 lessons with Juan Carlos and I had a blast. He is very knowledgeable and professional. But he is also very kind and easy going so it makes the whole experience really enjoyable. I was quite anxious about the ocean at first, but he put me at ease and I feel much more confident in the waves now. I particularly liked the fact that he took videos of me surfing and analyzed them afterward so I could see my mistakes and improve more quickly. I will definitely come back soon for more lessons!! Thank you SO much Juan Carlos!

This place is unforgettable! The owner Derek is an amazing host and the rooms are great! We went down for during the offseason and La Negra was the destination. I don't think there is any other hotel in Guiones that is closer to the beach sand than La Negra. We stayed a week and enjoyed breakfast on-site, hospitable staff, peacefulness, and surfing lessons with Juan Carlos (who was an attentive and patient coach)!! This was our first trip to Nosara and already booking to return with our three kids in December. If you are looking for the perfect mix between surf and zen or if you just want to be close to the beach in this four-star beauty La Negra is the spot!

A good hotel until the day I was to check out. Got back from the beach and I was told that the hotel was going to fumigate. I asked if I could shower and check out before they started fumigation. They said yes, no problem. After my shower I opened the room door to find a gigantic cloud of insecticide. I rushed to close all the windows in the room to find out that not all of them had window panes. Great! So here I am, trapped in the room with insecticide flowing in. I eventually made a mad rush for my car through the cloud of insecticide with a shirt over my mouth but still inhaled enough insecticide that I was coughing 30 minutes later. Also, they did not my trash can for the 2 days I stayed there even though I left it outside my room.

Charlie, I am so sorry about that!!! Clearly there was a miscommunication. Our intent was to scheduled the fumigation for a moment when no one was in the hotel. We fumigate approximately two times a year, so this is not something future guests should be too concerned about. What else can I say, a clear mistake on our part. Please accept my apology. Regarding the trash, I have notified our cleaning staff of your complaint. Trash should be cleaned everyday. Glad to hear your stay was otherwise a good one.

I spent a week at La Negra Surf Hotel and Soda. The surf hotel is steps from the beach. A warm, clean and beautiful space to stay at. The staff Patri, Tulio and hotel staff were all really helpful and friendly. Being part of the surf camp with Juan Carlos and Alphonso was super fun. They were accommodating and took the time to help me with constructive feedback to improve my surfing. I'd recommend anyone to check out this place and to definitely get a surf package or lessons with Juan Carlos and his crew. Looking forward to visiting here again soon. Pura Vida.

Just returned from a girls' birthday trip and we chose to stay here as it's super close to the beach and has surf lessons. The hotel was clean and very friendly and helpful staff. The Surf Instructor, Juan Carlos was excellent and I went from no experience to standing up by day 2 catching several waves. He's very good and instructing and giving feedback along the way so you can correct and progress quickly. Highly recommend this place for surf lessons and a great time over all! Pura Vida :)
