We visited KayaSol in February 2014 and it was as promised; affordable, clean, comfortable, friendly and relaxing. We stayed in the beach house, it was great! We had 3 couples and it was roomy and clean. With the exception of a few lights that needed to be replaced there were no issues. Plenty of room to put your surf boards...

Three of us couples stayed in a beach house. The house was large, there were dishes, pots, silverware etc already there. Granted, it reminded me of college when I had a kitchen full of dishes that were hand-me-downs but it was a great homey feel. It made me wonder if people that stay there might leave things they purchased for...

We picked staying at the Kaya Sol hotel on a whim, looked close to the beach and that sold us- I could go on and on about what a great place this was, it was our center for the entire vacation- The rooms were comfortable in size, beds were a little stiff but you do enough during the day that...

The best thing about Kaya Sol is that you can choose the accommodation level you want, and they will have it. Their rooms range from suites that include kitchens, to studios without bathrooms, to hostel rooms. If you're on a budget, this place offers great options for a (relatively) reasonable price (in Nosara). I personally would bypass the hostel here,...

Enjoyed our stay! The staff was friendly and helpful. Neil quickly set us up for Miss Sky canopy tour and transport per our request. He also assisted with surfboard recommendations. Thank you! We stayed in the hostel section with a large shared bathroom and hot shower. The shared kitchen had all basic cookware. Really loved the pool area. It provided...

Nosara is cool town and the KayaSol is in a great location but the management needs to get back to the basics and step things up. The working staff is super friendly and amazingly helpful but the accommodations don't justify the prices. The bedding includes one pillow and one sheet and overall the rooms were average. The rates are not...

I am happy that you enjoyed our friendly staff and great location. Our goal is 100% satisfaction and our clients opinions matter. Had you approached us about wanting another pillow and/or sheet we would have gladly pointed out to you that all of the closets are equipped with extra pillows and sheets. Although we have recently undergone major improvements such...

Nice little hotel with very kind and helpful staff. Close to the beach. Fun Bar/Restaurant right there in the hotel and the hotel itself is close to the beach. Great hotel for those traveling on a budget. Only knock against this hotel would be the bed and bedding, but welcome to budget hotels in Costa Rica. You might request extra...

My husband and I recently spent a week (over Christmas) at Kayasol Surf Hotel. We were in studio #9. The room was basic but clean and perfect for beach/surf/live in our bathing suits vacation. We had a stand up shower, small kitchenette and double bed. We thought we may do some cooking in our room while were there but groceries...
