A real heaven when you've just traveled all the north under a crazy sun : the host is very welcoming and still discreet, the breakfast is perfect, and the place is just fantastic!
Only thing that could be better: the bed is a bit hard to stay many nights.
Anyway, I warmly recomend this place!

Recently stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a 2-week Costa Rican holiday. I wish we had stayed at the Bella Vista Mar for longer. A most comfortable, lovely, scenic, friendly establishment. Set high on a hill with sweeping ocean views, this small-to-mid size inn was beautifully decorated, our room was quite large, the host and other staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, good-sized and nicely laid out pool, delicious coffee and breakfast, and honor-system beers in the fridge! Trail from inn down to the beach is about a 20-minute walk (longer coming home up the hill). Drive into town is only a few kilometers but like all roads in Costa Rica, bumpy as heck (and notoriously dusty in this part of the country). I couldn't give higher marks to this inn. Perfect in every way.

Room Tip: WE loved the Nosara room.

John and I spent 5 wonderful nites at this adorable B and B! From the warm welcome by elysia, who showed us around to the perfect room, beautiful pool area, and well-appointed kitchen, our stay was stellar! The breakfast was wonderful, especially the banana pancakes!! Coffee ready early! And the refrigerator is well stocked with beer, wine, soda, all available for a very minimal price, on the honor system!
We made some new friends, with whom we shared a couple dinners, all contributing, and using the grill to do some wonderful fish right from the fishermen off the boat!
A perfect place to stay in Nosara!!
Thank you Alexa!!

This place rocks! Breathtaking view, choose the 2nd floor room, great nature all around the property, the pool is great too. They have yoga + massages + reiki teachers if u are into it. Outstanding price vs quality.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few nights while visiting Nosara and it was amazing! We stayed in the Samara room (main building, upstairs) and the ocean view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful. Alexa was very helpful, whether it was with local advice or directions, and always made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was delicious every morning (Bannana pancakes were so good!) and access to the kitchen made us feel very at home. It's a 5+ minute drive to the main strip at Playa Guiones (aka Nosara Beach) but you will come to appreciate this because the house is up on the hill in a much quieter, more laid back part of town. Only a five minute walk to Playa Pelada from the house, and another 20 minute walk down the beach to Playa Guiones. My favorite part of our stay there may have been having the pool to come back to after a long day of surfing, it was very relaxing! If you are looking for an affordable, quiet place with amazing views that's away from the hustle of the town, this is for you!
