Theresa, I and our children Eva & Matthew thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Tierra Magnifica. It was a great venue for Steve & Jacklynn's wedding. We found the rooms very comfortable and the meals were excellent. We also enjoyed the activities nearby, the beach and restaurants were also highlights for us. We were very pleased to make our first stay in Costa Rica in your fine hotel.

Management response:

Thanks guys for sharing your comments with us and our future guests. We sure enjoyed getting to know Steven and Jacklynn's family. It was a pleasure to share our slice of paradise with you. Your TM Friends

We stayed here with our three children (3, 5 and 8) for a week before Christmas and had an incredible experience. The staff did a remarkable job scheduling appropriate activities, babysitting and ensuring that our trip was spectacular from start to end. Traveling with small kids has its challenges to Tierra Magnifica made it a fun and memorable experience for our entire family.

Management response:

Thank you ACL Atlanta for sharing your experience with our future guests. Our staff had so much fun with your kids. We're honored that you trusted us to take care of your family. Please come back soon. Cheers, Steve Jacobus

No question, would recommend to anyone. We had fairly large party (16), which the TM team handled with ease, from airport pickup through return. They are there to help you have the most enjoyable, but tailored to you wants, vacation. Ours involved parents, grandparents, and several teens and pre-teens. We had a range of activities, from beach days, to walking tours, zip lines, and ATV tours. They handled the bookings with ease, and helped us...

I initially learned about Tierra Magnifica from the incredible photos on their instagram account, @tierramagnifica . My wife and I hadn't been to the Nosara area of Guanacaste, Costa Rica, but had heard amazing things from others about the pristine beaches and rain forest, the good surf and the chill, bohemian vibe. The place is still largely undiscovered and not over developed and commercialized like so many beach destinations in Central America, Mexico or Caribbean....
