#1 of 2 in Playa Guiones
Travellers' Choice
he Nosara Beach Hotel is the most recognizable landmark perched on a naturally exquisite point between the world-class beaches of Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada on the Pacific Ocean since 1977. Part of the local history as the very first hotel in Nosara, now restored to its original grandiose with whimsical architectural lines and eclectic flavors.

We stayed for 7 nights in April 2022, during one of the busiest times of the season. We had a wonderful stay and were even lucky enough to extend it longer because we loved it so much. What makes this place so magical? First, the location. As you can see from the photo, the hotel sits between two beautiful beaches, Playa Guinones and Playa Pelada. What you can't see is how it feels - tranquil, secluded, quiet, safe and away from the hustle of North Guiones which is just a 10 minute drive away. The pool was also a great option when we needed a break from the beach or wanted to swim after sunset (closes at 8pm). Second, the staff. Thank you to Esperanza, Daniel and Daniela for your dedication to making our trip so special. Even though we are seasoned travelers, we still had lots of questions and they were helpful with everything: transportation, tours, restaurants, culture and random questions. The staff are beautiful, smart and proactive people who go out of their way to help guests have a good experience (I am an executive recruiter professionally - I notice these things!!) Third, the restaurant onsite is a treasure. Breakfast is included every morning, and our waiter, Joham, was very attentive and made amazing fresh fruit juice every morning. We often came back for lunch because the food was great and the veranda offered a cool respite from the hot sun. Joham was especially patient with our two boys (12 and 9) and they slowly practiced their Spanish while ordering. TBC...

We booked several spacious suites for my daughter's wedding week. While the facade could use a little tlc, we were blown away with the excellent food in the open air restaurant overlooking the ocean, the magnificent ocean views, the charming grecian influenced design, and the friendly, accommodating hotel staff, from the front desk manager to the landscapers, housekeeping staff, and handymen. A very relaxed atmosphere, a 10 minute walk to the best surfing beach in Nosara. We are excited to return next year!

This place is absolutely amazing. It's one of the only places to stay in Nosara that is right on the beach, and it's perfectly situated right between Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada! We rented surf boards for the week and would go to Guiones for the surf and Pelada for the walking and relaxing. We stayed in one of the rooms with its own pool and it was incredible, especially during Covid times, to have our own space. The patio was huge, room was clean and comfortable, and we felt really at home. Perhaps the best part of the whole place, though, was the restaurant. They were not open for dinner when we were there, but the lunch we had was one of the best in the whole area, and the daily breakfast took the cake for the best of our trip in CR. We loved the french toast kebabs the most, but everything we tried was delicious. They also left us a lovely surprise in the suite for our honeymoon. Would HIGHLY recommend this hotel!

This hotel is so unique and beautiful. We pulled up to it after driving 1.5 hours on mostly dirt road and felt like we had reached a gem at the very end of the earth. There are only 21 or 22 rooms in the whole place but the restaurant, pool, and grounds are spacious. And all of it is right by the beach. Esperanza, the manager who also functions as an outstanding concierge, could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was delicious.

I am literally obsessed with this quirky amazing boutique hotel in Nosara. The rooms are gigantic and well appointed. The views rival Santorini! The true gem of this hotel are the super kind and warm team. Martin,Lucia and Esperenza have become friends I will cherish. We have stayed here 8 nights so far and keep extending our stay because we are so happy here. Oh and the breakfasts are beyond incredible. All my love and gratitude Danya
