Lovely hotel and the staff are so friendly and helpful. Also, if you're a swimmer who likes a pool, they have a really nice lap pool - only one in Nosara. I will stay here for sure next time I'm here!

Stayed for 2 nights to work in the area. The hotel is surrounded by nature, there is green everywhere. The room was comfy, nice and clean and had just been remodeled so everything was impecable. Breakfast was included and both days I went for the local option and ordered an extra side of bacon (really good) and was really. Downsides is the prices for anything at the mini bar is veeeery expensive and there was no soap or shampoo in the bathroom

The hotel is beautiful with nice details, however the price does not include more than a poor breakfast nothing elaborated. The restaurant that is at the entrance of the hotel is not managed by the hotel so the payment is at the moment and not charged to the room, you have to take this into account because normally inside the hotel do not charge money or cards and at the end of eating must cancel the account. Again the hotel is well has minimal services but the price paid leaves a lot to be desired.In my opinion in general Nosara prices are expensive compared to the rest of the country, maybe this may be the reason that my perception of the price is like this.I can not say that the hotel was a bad experience at all

Choosing Gardens was the best decision while planning the trip becauseyou get not only good equipped very clean room, numerous services, good breakfast but also a very friendly team of professionals who are ready to help you any time, to point you the best places to discover and share some secrets about the paradise called Nosara. My husband said this is the best place on the whole Pacific coast!

On the Guests Services Card of the The Gardens Hotel they state that their mission is to make sure "you have the best holiday ever". Seeing as we're super lucky to have had quite a few memorable holidays, we thought it was a tall order - but mission accomplished! The rooms and gardens are gorgeous and Spacialle (the GM) and her team really go out of their way to make sure you really do have the holiday of a lifetime. Also, Nosara - certainly off the beaten track, but worth every bone-jolt along the gravel roads - is exactly what your mind conjurs up when you hear the phrase "Pura Vida".

Almost all of our rooms have hammocks, only 2 downstairs units don't, and they have a rocking chair, instead. There are also hanging egg chairs around the pool and plenty of nooks to tuck yourself away around the property... More

There is no town. There is "main" street with some restaurants and shops and is 10 min walking distance.
