Found this hotel via trip advisor and were not dissapointed. Really friendly people and a nice chilled vibe. Room was enough for what we needed, comfy bed, decent shower, aircon and wifi. Salt water pool was a nice touch, great for dipping in when it gets a bit too hot in the midday sun. The living cafe is also very...

Imagine a small, beautiful beach town surrounded by jungle, sea and wildlife, with a multicultural community and chilled surf vibe. I found Nosara to be a remote town with dusty roads leading down to the beach. You can pop into any independent cafe, grab a superfood smoothie or Costa coffee (the real Costa Rican kind), take a yoga session or...

When considering a rating for a hotel or restaurant I always ask myself - compared to what? Compared to other establishments in that community or compared to the general universe of, say hotels, that I have stayed at? I never understand why reviewers so easily hand out "excellent" reviews as if everything was perfect and there was no room for...

Living Hotel Nosara was nothing short of amazing. I traveled solo and never once felt unsafe. The staff was friendly, the salt water pool refreshing, and the property itself very well maintained with it's hammock filled gardens. I loved my cozy room with the white linens - especially my comfortable bed. This quaint little hotel is located just a few...

I loved this hotel. It was my boyfriend & I's favorite hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica (out of 5). The location is great, it's right in the heart of Nosara, but feels like an escape once you walk onto the property. The room was really cute, comfortable and had a great outside porch. The food at the cafe...

The rooms are very small and the beds incredibly uncomfortable (very thin mattresses). Although it says breakfast is included, it is not (it used to be). The people are very nice, and the smoothies are great, but the beds were just not comfortable enough for me (although I have sore joints). And the air conditioners are locked on a warmer...

Hi 37enidw, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I am so sorry your time here was not a pleasant one. I'm not sure what to say about the mattress.

We enjoyed the deep salt water pool, and elegantly appointed room with white linens. The breakfast of fresh fruits, granola, and honey along with fresh squeezed orange juice was a great start every day. My wife really enjoyed the yoga and pilates classes held daily.

It was my first time solo-travelling and I did the surf and yoga retreat - i could only recommend it.
