I have just left what I would call paradise!
When I saw this charming B & B online I was immediately taken by it and when I got there it was exactly what I was expecting.
The location it's amazing the customer service was great and the food is to die for..... I cannot wait to be back there it is my new favorite holiday destination!!

My travels have never kept me in one spot for long. This time around I found myself wanting to stay put and become a temporary 'local' and here in Garza, Guanacaste, Costa Rica a quaint fishing village on the Nicoya Peninsula I made that happen.

New friends, new experiences all made possible because here at the hotel Playa Garza, two young Italians made the experience more Pura Vida. From purchasing a fishing kayak to catch dinner, surfing secret spots and not so secret to gathering coconuts and other fresh fruit.

If you are ever travelling the Nicoya, stop by Hotel Playa Garza (6k south of Guioness/Nosara) grab some linguine alla langosta or a Capricciosa pizza, catch the setting sun over Bahia Garza and enjoy a late night movie on the 8'x8' screen with an Imperial lager. Spend the night and then spend the day casting line on the Pacific Ocean. Maybe you'll be so lucky to catch a hammerhead shark. Or not

Playa Garza is my favourite place in Guanacaste. Hotel Garza is small, intimate and very friendly. Yuri and Chiara go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The rooms are simple and very clean. It has a pool that my son loves and wonderful tropical plants all over the garden area. The beach is just across the street, 2 minutes away. There is a very good local interaction with lots of people coming to buy their pizzas made by Yuri at the outdoor kitchen.
Highly recommended.

We came here for one night and stayed for three, (would have stayed much longer but our plane was departing). The food was amazing and priced great. The hotel was clean, comfortable and very welcoming. The owners were very hospitable and took us on a private trip to the Pink Beach. I highly recomend finding your way to this slice of paradise!

This is a great little place and pretty much the only game in town. Centrally located for for access to the surrounding towns and activities yet away from the tourist trap atmosphere. Real good value for your dollar. The hosts are a charming young Italian couple who made us feel very welcome and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. The pride they take in the quality and service in the restaurant is obvious. Sea food, traditional Italian, pizza and a full bar. Wouldn't hesitate to go back and visit our new friends.

We spent ten days in this beautiful hotel! Very good home atmosphere, very good real Italian food! Economic prices for a big family of 5 people! The beach is near, you can see it from the hotel! And you can swim when ever you want , :) Yuri and Ciara are very kind and fun !)
We hope to visit this nice and cozy place again. The nearest other beach is Guiones and there is a lot of things to do as well , and it's only 5 Km away from the hotel. Yuri and Ciara can also recommend you lots of different interesting things to do in Nosara .

Love this place! super cute, 2 min away from the beach, freaking amazing pizza and the place has a warmness to it. the young couple who have the hotel give the place a soul, and they make you feel like you are a part of a family. If you are traveling alone, you won't feel alone with them. They will show you around, and make you feel like you are home. I highly recommend anyone to stay here, if you are looking for somewhere affordable, amazing food, quiet, but close to the beach and town.
