We had a wonderful time here. Clean, refreshing, close to beach. Warm and friendly staff. Close to everything you need - bars, restaurants, surf shops, pizza by the slice, surf lessons. Alarm clock is a howler monkey!

I can not say enough about the staff (especially manager Sally and front desk)!!! From them alone you should stay here. The airline lost my bags and they were so helpful getting them back to me.

The staff was welcoming and pro, and the place is 5 min from the beach. I rented a full house for myself and a friend for a very affordable price. I'll definitely book there again when I'm back in Costa Rica!

What a cool place to stay! Short walk to the surf, rest in a nice room. We rented one with a full kitchen, so it was like a mini apartment. Relaxed in the pool and had numerous drinks and dinners at the restaurant on Surf/Yoga destination. Will return again!

This was my first visit to Costa Rica. It was a pleasant surprise and so very enjoyable. KayaSol is an excellent choice as the staff and environment is friendly and helpful if needed. Our room was one of the hotel rooms but the hostel rooms looked clean and comfortable as well. There is a short walk to the quiet beach...

I have stayed in 5 hotels in Nosara, actually Playa Guiones. Fortunately booked the vacation a little late as it is high season. So one of the only places available was the casita at Kaya Sol. It turned out to be one the best values and a little home away from home, for the same price as just a room...

Thank You Tricia! Your description of the value of Casita is perfect, that is exactly what we were going for when we designed the "mini home".

Older, English speaking people drinking. If this is your thing, this is a place for you. The staff here all seemed very young and although polite, quite condescending. But that seems to be indicative throughout most of the Nosara area. My two night stay there is really a tale of two rooms, the first being a small room right behind...
