Hotel Nirvana by the Sea

The room was very basic, but okay. I could see daylight through a few small holes in the walls, but there was no bug problem and the room was reasonably clean. My main complaint is the shower. This place says that it has hot water, but the water in the shower was warm for maybe 5 seconds, then cool. Then, the water took hours to drain, which made it rather unpleasant to be the second person to use the shower. This is a very inexpensive place, but I felt a bit mislead by the website.

we were lucky to stay one night at cabinas nirvana as its mostly complete. we would loved to stay more nights ... the very nice thing was that even we stayed just for one night the owners treated us like customers who have booked one week. we can confirm that all the previous reviews are correct with their admirable words about this beautyful place.

Travelled around all Costa Rica and this must be the best place value for money I came across ! We even had a sloth coming to eat on the tree right in front of our bungalow . The place is run by a lovely Austrian couple which is always helpful and available for anything you need. Breakfast is also amazing. Each bungalow has his own hammock and the pool is just the icing on the cake .

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in this comfortable Cabinas. What made our stay of 6 nights even more enjoyable was the excellent hospitality we both received from Yolanda and Sepp. Nothing was too much trouble for any of our requests and any question was met with practical answers showing a good knowledge of the immediate surrounding areas. Please check it out as you will not be disappointed, Robin G

My wife and I stayed 5 nights in December at Cabinas Nirvana.
Yolanda and Sepp are amazing hostes, polite and welcoming. They advised us about all the tours and how we could go to Punta Uva, Cahuita National Park and other highlights in the region.
We booked a bungalow with Kitchen and it was worthy.
We had a great time and enjoy the Caribbean side.

great service for a very good price! lovely garden and houses (with hammocks of course :) ). The owners go to great lengths to make sure you have everything you need. lots of great tips about the area and activities and also very helpful with any organization you need to do. i'd especially recommend the snorkeling with the local guide that they offer! saw so many and even touched some of the coral reef inhabitents! We definitely saved the best for the end! Muchas Gracias Sepp and Yolanda!

Cabinas Nirvana is a lovely, peaceful place to stay - the rooms are clean and well-maintained, and look out to a lush garden. The owners are both friendly and thoughtful, and make it easy to find anything you're looking for in town. It's towards the edge of town, which was not a problem since they picked me up and dropped me off at the bus station, and had a bicycle available to use during the day. Couldn't ask for more!
