We went purely on recommendation, and were very surprised and thoroughly impressed by the property, people managing and working at the property, and the facilities and options offered. I think a key reason we fell in love with Nosara was this resort. You are only 5 minutes (walking) to the beach, 10 minutes (car) to the town and the airport,...

They serve breakfast in the morning and the Italian restaurant on site is delicious! Clean rooms and it's location is great. We were only a minute or two...

Amazing tropical paradise location. The grounds were beautiful, quiet and clean as were the rooms. Great open common area and small lap pool (I had no problem using it whenever I wanted). Surf shop and bike rental on site. The staff spoke great English. The manager was from Chicago and was very visible on the grounds. They made us feel...

The Giardino Tropicale provided me with the perfect spot for my week long surf trip. The staff did everything to make you feel at home and the short walk to the beach was perfect for getting to the waves quickly.

Spacialle and Enrique did a great job helping to entertain our large busy group. Great hosts!! They coordinated our massages, canopy tour and gave us excellent recommendations throughout our 9 days in Costa Rica. The surf school is a fun bonus to the hotel. We had family dinner one night with all of the tuna our boys caught. There were...

We stayed at Giordino Tropicale for 2 weeks in September. It was our first trip in years and far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived, Spacialle and Enrique, were there to greet us and guide us. They led us toward every option available with details, and have it all at their fingertips. Many things are offered on the...

I spent a week at Giardino Tropicale on yoga retreat. Spacialle and Enrique are wonderful hosts and they really make you feel at home. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and they really knock it out of the park! Best avocado toast and homemade smoothies! I loved walking around the beautiful gardens, watching the monkeys, and lounging by...

Lovely garden with shade and a pool to swim lengths in. Monkeys serenading you in the trees. Short walk to the beach and Spanish school. Safe and clean. Hopefully next door construction completed. You can help yourself to coffee in the morning. Exquisite food in restaurant up the stairs. Spaciale did everything to make me feel welcome, answer questions and...

Had an amazing family stay in the Hotel. The family suite was stunning with a huge balcony. Beach is incredible. The surf school was a highlight for the kids. Gardens and pool work really well. Advice on places to eat and visit made it all so easy. Don't miss the restaurant upstairs and Luna at sunset.
