Where the jungle meets the ocean. Tucked away in a lush nature preserve with only a sendero (/sen’dero/: spanish translation, a short path or trail) between you and the breaking waves of Guiones Beach, Sendero hotel immerses you in the sounds and sights of the animals and birds and the abundance of jungle plants and trees, while still being in the heart of Nosara. We believe the simple joy of life lies in the details. A stay in any of our rooms, suites or villas draws in the natural beauty and vibrant atmosphere that Nosara offers. Every detail has been designed to make guests feel both at home and a part of the Nosara community.

I can’t say enough good things about our stay at Sendero with our 5 year old son. From the gorgeous design, to the A+ location just 60 seconds from the beach at Guiones, to the most comfortable bed I’ve maybe ever slept on in a hotel, to the warmth and professionalism of the staff — this place has set the new standard for Nosara.

Attention to detail is evident across the board — from the beautiful tile and pottery throughout the property, the luxe linens, and the amazing products in the showers.

The staff might be the highlight. From the front desk to the maintenance staff to housekeeping — every single person we interacted with was friendly, warm, remembered our names, and projected the ‘Pura vida’ spirit. We will return as soon as possible to this incredible property.

EL Sendero Hotel in NoSara is a magical home away from home
Claudio, Justin, Laiza, Rachel, Ana,, and Emanuel Were all amazing with their kindness, their service, they’re making sure we were taken care of, and that we understood everything and went out of their way multiple times
That’s the most important part, but the hotel itself really is a wonderful location especially if you enjoy a pool that is shaded by trees and is pretty good at discouraging mosquitoes!
I think they sent the area with essential oils, which makes it pretty wonderful
The breakfasts are next level and while it’s not a wide selection, that’s OK because you might as well try everything on the menu once it’s that goo!
Rachelle makes great, mock tails, and cocktails, making the bar a very welcome place to sit and relax, and I have to mention the outdoor shower in the garden room is a big reason my vacation was such a wonderful success in tune with nature
We are going back soon!

Best location - literally a 3 min walk along a path to the famous Guiones beach where the surf is consistent and the beach gorgeous. Also close to many shops, bars and restaurants.

The jungle room was lovely. Not massive, but you didn't come here to hang out in your room. The private outdoor shower overlooking the jungle was REALLY nice. Everything about the hotel's structure/layout/construction were top notch. Bed and bedding were lovely.

The staff were very receptive and helpful: arranging RT transport to LIB, booking local tours, and generally helping make our stay very special. Housekeeping staff efficient and thorough, They corrected an honest misunderstanding on a charge in my favor too. Class operation as you might expect!

The restaurant was also quite a nice surprise. I was especially fond of the app that had tuna over sticky rice. Fresh fruit, coffee/tea and some tasty baked goods out near poolside another nice touch.

Had a wonderful experience at this beautiful, cozy, quaint, well-maintained hotel. Prices were reasonable. Felt safe. Check-in was easy. Room was small but cute, clean, and comfortable. Outdoor shower area was serene/awesome. Cool vibe in the lobby/restaurant/bar/main area. Much attention to detail with cookies and flavored water in the lobby, bikes, boards, yoga/pilates/surf lessons available for a fee, etc. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. Beach right across the street. Close walk to bars, restaurants, and shops. Lots of construction/noise in the area as the location is getting more built up... Would definitely recommend this hotel!!

The Sendero is a beautiful hotel located very conveniently. The restaurant was great. The service was cheerful. We stayed in one of the Jungle Rooms, which we highly recommend, as the outdoor shower facing out into the jungle was very special, as was the light and look of the room. The people who run it were delightful and kind. We would definitely stay there again.

New hotel in Nosara and I can practically assure you that it is the best in the area. PERFECT location, is walking distance to the beach, to the restaurants and commercial area. The vibe from the hotel is unique, rooms are incredible comfortable and the design of the outdoor shower with view to the forest is probably best part of the room. Perfect for remote workers, great wifi. If you surf this is the place to stay. All the details of this hotel are very well thought out, from the music playlist, the cookies and coffee at 6am for the early surf session. I've stayed in other hotels in Nosara and I have a new favorite!! Highly recommended.

This was the most amazing hotel! The staff was incredible and felt like family by the time we left. They helped organize yoga, couples massages, ATV rides and private shuttles to and from dinners and the airport. Every detail was thought out from the complimentary baked goods, coffee and tea by the pool to citronella candles and spray in each room. We stayed in the jungle room and the outdoor shower was the best part. This is a must stay in Nosara.

We had the most amazing experience at Sendero! From the moment they handed us the fresh coconut water when we arrived to our last freshly made breakfast the day we left. EVERYTHING and EVERYONE in this hotel made us feel welcomed in this magical home away from home. We loved the intimate boutique style of the property. We were lucky to have been upgraded to the jungle room—1,000% the best experience to shower out in nature! They thought of everything you could ask for—on-site yoga, surf rentals and lessons , free bikes, complimentary breakfast, tea and freshly baked cookies daily! I don’t want to give it all away, but you will not regret staying at Sendero. The owners took great care in every detail and EVERY staff member treated us with Pura Vida !! We will come back for sure! Muchisimas Gracias a toda la gente en Sendero! Pura Vida !!

I’m a bit of a hotel snob, but I am more than happy to recommend Sendero in Nosara 👍👍

The location is very convenient, close to everything. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms were great.

The staff and service were superb. Everybody is friendly, welcoming, and attentive.

The breakfast was fantastic, and I enjoyed ending every night with the friendly staff at the bar

I also thought the price was very reasonable and the value exceptional.

This is a brand new boutique hotel in a prime location. The rooms are small and absolutely perfect! The Jungle rooms are my favorite -every single one of them is fantastic whether first floor or second and the birds, monkeys and other wildlife that can be seen and heard while reading on the back deck or showering is a beautiful reminder you are in the jungle! I couldn't love this hotel anymore! A shout out to Marco and Claudio for keeping this hotel pristine and for making us feel welcomed!!
