I stayed with a friend back there in mid april 2014. We were looking to relax and chill out. Guess what...this place was perfect for that. Is a remote place, that true but once you get there everything is just perfect. You can hear the birds wake you up in the morning, get out from the room and see this...

I stayed here in March with 2 friends, and we loved our experience. The staff is very friendly and are close with the local community, so they told us all the cool hang out spots. They also arranged a personal yoga class for us!

I visited here with two of my girlfriends for two nights last week and it was absolutely a wonderful place to stay by the beach. We stayed in the cabina and it was the perfect size for us... three single beds plus a couch which could be used for a bed for a fourth person, bathroom, bathroom with shower, kitchen...

There are few frills but plenty of value for anyone happy to be removed from town and the beach scene. My indoor/outdoor room was spacious and cleaned daily. The outdoor kitchen had a freezer, and ice water became a luxurious indulgence. Breakfast consisted of a very limited amount of fruit, toast, coffee, a blended fresca and moments of good company....

There is truly something magical about Nosara Retreat. My partner and I stayed at the retreat on our first trip to Costa Rica for what intended to just be a week and a half before moving along to the next town, but after checking in to our next destination we found ourselves missing Nosara retreat, the beach, and the people...

The grounds of the retreat are very well kept and the trails wind around the property and down to the road that leads to the beach. We took one of the small cottages with two rooms. The kitchen was fine for a couple days and the super on the road to Nosara is very well stocked. It was very quiet...

Located off the north end of sleepy Playa Pelada beach, the property sits in a lush jungle setting teeming with wildlife. Exotic bird call and howler monkeys herald sunrise and sunset. My room was clean and comfortable with a spacious patio furnished with table and chairs and chair hammock I used each morning. Deborah, the personable proprietor, prepared a simple...

Nosara retreat is a beautiful property in what seems to be the heart of a forrest, while still only a five minute walk from the Ocean. It's very peaceful and serene, the people who own it are exceptionally friendly, the rooms are simple, comfortable and clean and it offers delicious continental breakfast in the morning. I would totally recommend this...

My wife and I stayed at the Nosara Retreat in March of 2012 and I returned on my own for one of their retreats in November of 2012.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nosara Retreat is nestled in the pristine Pacific coast of Costa Rica on two acres of tropical gardens and jungle. Created in harmony with nature, we are here to provide you with an ideal setting for relaxation, rejuvenation, personal rediscovery and fun. A five-minute walk brings you to the secluded Pelada Beach with fine white sand. The ocean is the centerpiece of life here. You can walk for miles along the quiet, unspoiled beaches of Nosara observing magical rock formations, breaking waves, and gentle tide pools. We provide affordable earth friendly living with personalized service. We have a variety of room choices from private rooms and baths to shared kitchen areas. As well as a private casita with separate room that sleeps up to four. Onsite yoga pavilion with mats, props, and pillows available. Also on site Temescal (sweat lodge). Activities we offer include: turtle nesting, surfing and horseback riding, water sports, hiking trails, walk through the biological preserve, and zip line tour. Our on site jungle trail through the green zone to the beach allows you to explore the unspoiled wildness of this vibrant natural habitat. Nosara Retreat is an ideal spot from which to explore Nosara's laid-back charm, fine restaurants, shops and assortment of Yoga and wellness options. Or you may want to just relax in a hammock, watch the howler monkeys and listen to the ocean. This peaceful setting is ideal for unwinding. Enjoy rural, rustic Costa Rica, "pura vida" (pure life). ... more   less
