Pros: We loved this place. There is absolutely nothing I can say bad about it. The location is wonderful. A short walk to the most gorgeous beach. The room was wonderful. Spacious, clean and very comfortable. The food is delicious. We ate all our meals breakfast, lunch and dinner for 3 days at their restaurant and were not bored. The staff is friendly and so helpful. We would definitely go back and stay there. They have boggie boards, surf boards and bikes that you can use free of charge.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Nice pool. Pretty landscaping. Clean.
Cons: Expensive for what we got. Thought we were getting a poolside room, but didn’t. No views, no balcony, no juice at breakfast. No chairs or umbrellas available for beach which wasn’t clear. Would not have stayed if known. Never got the extra blanket asked for, only a sheet.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff at Olas Verdes were the absolute best. They were warm and genuinely concerned and wanting to help. The facility is great with excellent rooms, a beautiful pool, and the food in the restaurant was some of the best we had in Costa Rica.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing views overlooking the ocean and the rain forest. Fantastic set of infinity pools and jacuzzi. Sunset views are stunning. Great restaurant on-site and super friendly staff.
Cons: Nothing. Just be aware that you are in the middle of the rainforest so despite screen doors etc the occasional ants, spiders , gecko etc will find its way into your room :-). Also mischievous coatis ( raccoons) may try to open your balcony doors ! Hotel is a little bit removed from the main beaches, restaurants so own transport is useful.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing views and staff couldn’t be more helpful

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Being above the nature reserve meant seeing all sorts of amazing animals and birds most days, and being on a hill meant the view, especially the sunsets were incredible.

Pros: The staff and their exceptional service make this property a gem. The views are phenomenal and the rooms are lovely.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was by far our favourite place/accommodation we stayed at in Costa Rica and maybe ever in all our years of travel! The staff were all exceptional and went out of their way to ensure my family and I were comfortable from the moment we pulled in the driveway. They wouldn't even let us bring our own bags to our room. Hanging out there felt like you were at a dinner party with friends and family. Must mention how great the waiter Herald was to our children and us!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were amazing
Cons: Nothing it was perfect
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved the view and the comfortability. It use to be a place for small groups and they just started opening it up online. It was almost like you rented a house and just a few other people are there with a whole staff to help you with your every whim. You can grab your own drinks from the bar, swim in the pool as late as you like, and there are no room keys. The place was amazing and just up the mountain so it was cooler, less dusty in dry season, and lots more wildlife. Definite gem!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Tierra Magnifica is absolutely beautiful and we have had best 2 day stay here - we would have loved to have stayed for longer! The staff are so accommodating, great pool area with lovely loungers , fab cocktails, views to die for. We had both evening meals at the hotel and both were tasty! Don’t think twice about booking here for your holidays - you will not regret it and despite being expensive, I think great value for money!
Cons: Not a thing!

Pros: Facility and Staff
Cons: Could smell sewage often
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Amazing property. Super clean and beautiful. Very helpful staff.
Cons: Surprised that the clientele were more of a hotel crowd than a hostel crowd.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were wonderful, facility was clean and comfy. Close to the beach and walking distance to many great restaurants, yoga studios etc.
Cons: I expected The Nomadic to be a little more lively. Granted most people in Guiones get up early to surf which means early to bed, but it was even more quiet than I expected. Great people staying there though, I got lucky with an awesome group that were friendly and respectful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place to hang around, great breakfast and perfect for chilling out and walking for the occasional surf!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: As a solo traveler, I think that The Nomadic is a wonderful place to meet other solo travelers. The bunk beds are awesome! The rooms are cleaned every day. Very friendly staff!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Loved the staff! Every person working there was absolutely lovely, going above and beyond.
Cons: The room is pretty basic - there is no mini fridge, no glasses for water, not a lot of cupboard space for people staying longer than a few days. I think they’re working on that as they keep adding things to the rooms.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, great hotel!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: A variety of included tasty breakfasts. Nice pool and very nice and helpful staff.
Cons: A bit of a walk to restaurants
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is absolutely stunning, it has a beautiful design and a boutique, chill vibe to it. The breakfasts were delicious and varied every day! Plenty of area to relax in the shade or tan in the sun! Lovely bar to grab a drink and meet fellow travellers.
Cons: The dorm room where I stayed was a bit crammed and not a lot of space for your belongings but on the upside, there is a spacious bathroom area with 2 toilets and 2 showers so you never have to wait.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Watching monkeys at breakfast. Lazy post-surf afternoons by the pool. Amazing breakfasts and super friendly staff. We loved the paradise that is the Green Sanctuary and also its wildlife and minimal impact on the environment. Thanks for having us!!
Cons: Needed a quad or golf buggy to make surf and beach trips easier and quicker with young kids.
9.6 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place surrounded by nature. Clean and comfortable rooms, nice bed and bathroom.
Cons: Everything was great, nothing to complain
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved everything about our stay at the Green Sanctuary. Breakfast was made fresh and a great start to our day. Most days we just had a quick snack for lunch and then a nice dinner in town. Staff was also amazing - super friendly and helpful.
Cons: Only thing we would have changed was the signage to the hotel (we arrived in the dark and it was a challenge) and proximity to the beach. It was an easy drive to the beach, but our kids were wishing for the ability to drop back to the hotel mid-day without packing up the whole family and driving back.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Green Sanctuary is deserving of all the 5 star reviews! The rooms are clean, chic, and well-appointed. The grounds and facilities are top-notch, and the staff could not be more warm or accommodating (we will miss you, Ady!!!) The property has a small community feel with plenty of privacy and attracts a varied international clientele — many of whom return season after season. If we ever return to Costa Rica, we will return to the Green Sanctuary!
Cons: Nosara in general didn’t seem to have a lot of kids, and the Green Sanctuary was no exception. If you are traveling with children, be warned: all the serenity may invite an “I’m bored” mantra from kiddos who need lots of stimulation.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is the second time we stayed here. We love Nosara and we really like this hotel because it is up on a hill surrounded by trees, and the people are very warm. We will definitely come back again!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast included was delicious every morning and the location was great near the beach!
Cons: N/A

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The classes were great, as was the food.
6.3 Good
Pros: Great yoga Shala and gym, good classes, wonderful juice bar, nice aesthetic overall in the main areas, healthy foods.
Cons: Overcrowded, room was not well located, with a tiny window and no views, location far from anything including beach, beach not beautiful, town itself was disappointing, the roads are a mess and incredibly dusty. This was not a good value for money spent.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Great infrastructure and pool area, very friendly staff at the restaurant, clean rooms.
Cons: Unprofessional and unmotivated staff at the reception, overpriced food, drinks and services. The place appeared to me like a yoga party place filled with friends getting together that want to practice some yoga and having fun. The place is not recommended if you want to find silence and peace. If you are an authentic yogi, you will realize that this place is very commercial designed for tourists from the United States.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The people were amazing the gardens were Beautiful, Elizabeth our breakfast server was soooo amazing- love her!!
Cons: Humidity!!!! And the bugs
7.1 Good
Pros: Very stylish. Beautiful grounds, nice restaurant
Cons: The bungalow with kitchen are the closest to the main road so expect some noise (and dust in the dry season!). The room was small for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, we (the adults) ended up sleeping in a small double bed so didn’t get the best sleep. It works for 2 people but not for a family. Aside from that, nice gardens and pool, and good restaurant. it’s Nosara so everything there comes at a price.
10.0 Excellent

Pros: I was travelling alone and felt very comfortable there. Everyone was very helpful and when I forgot my cell phone plug-in they quickly returned it to me before I had moved on.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A little worn but clean and well maintained. Very accommodating staff. Very good location near the beach.
7.9 Good
Pros: We liked the location. Short walk to the beach. The area is quiet. Some howler monkeys in the morning. Pretty chill place. I also liked that they have AC in the rooms
Cons: The wifi is not good in the bedrooms. Works fine in the office area. But you cant use it for doing work or watching movies in your room. Will be spotty
7.0 Good
Pros: In comparison to all the expensive accommodations in town, this place was great value. The accommodation is basic but the one bedroom apartments.are very spacious, comfortable and clean. Little noise level and proper windows for mosquitoes to stay away. Breakfast was decent to fill the first hunger of the day including fresh fruits. The location topped everything. While Playa Guiones doesn't have accommodation directly on the beach, this is as close as you can get. You walk through a little passage (100-200m) and you are directly on the beach. Most cafes and restaurant are in less than 10 mins walking distance. This is a great attribute given that driving in town is a hassle with all the potholes and parking on the beach quickly gets full (hotel has its own parking).
Cons: Facilities could be upgraded!

Pros: Great location
7.9 Good
Pros: Location was great. Loved the sweet orange tabby cat that greeted me every day. He’s a super plus for the hotel. He needs a raise or at least some dinner everyday. Thank you “Tom”
Cons: That the people weren’t as friendly as Tom the cat. Maybe just a language burrier. However,there was one young man Ronnie who was is in office sometimes. He was very kind and helpful.
4.5 Okay
Pros: L
Cons: Green pool. Leaky toilets. Security not on the job.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The small secluded feel amongst the tropical gardens surrounding the pool and excellent communal area giving you a feeling of escape and tranquility. The hotel is ideally located centrally to some excellent restaurants and mini market right opposite. Beach is also a very short walk wouldn’t pick anywhere else in nosara to stay :)! The destiny cafe on site was amazing, incredible smoothies! The rooms were excellent, very clean and comfortable and great size. Private bathroom and showers were great an really useful to have a fridge in the room. rooms have a lovely terrace with a comfy bean bag sofa great to chill out. The pool is perfect great size and temperate
Cons: The cafe was excellent wish it open in the evenings some days too. The yoga classes on offer were expensive compared with classes we found nearby so didn’t use them here in the end which was a shame.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Close to restaurants and beach. Staff was very nice. Alejandro was extremely helpful!
5.5 Okay
Pros: It is small and fairly quiet, the pool is nice. The rooms are basic but clean-ish. The common area and shared kitchen is useful and nice. It’s very close to restaurants, shops and the beach. It has potential to be very nice if it changes management.
Cons: A few areas to improve: 1. Customer service was horrible to non existent. We arrived at 6pm to find reception closed. If you have unusual hours the hotel MUST email that in advance or liaise on arrival timing. There was a sign directing us to a shop to get keys but the hotel staff had not left them any information at all. Long story short, the shop staff kindly helped us get in a room but the hotel staff later moved us two more times. Before the final time, they asked if we wanted to move to the third room and we said we prefer to stay put because it was more hassle. They said okay sure, so of course we unpacked. THEN only one hour later they forced us to move again! The manager or owner claims reception is open 8am - 5pm but we only saw her from 10-2, sitting on her phone doing nothing, ordering staff around. She didn’t even say hello to us or apologise for forgetting us and moving us three times. We were invisible to her. I feel so sorry for her staff she must be a nightmare to work for, totally unorganised, lazy and rude. Theoretically you can book activities or yoga there but good luck finding anyone actually working reception to help. We ended up finding our own things which was easy to do along the road following ads and signs. 2. Cleanliness issues. The place wasn’t totally dirty, but it fell short of anywhere else we stayed in CR for the same price and class. Our pool towels were stained, there was a lot of bird droppings by the pool that was cleaned up but not regularly enough, and there was a column of ants coming from one of our walls across the room out our door. Look, I’m not fussed about a few bugs but this was a total ant infestation they were ignoring and we had to spend an evening (since no one works past 2pm there!) killing bite-y red ants that were getting into our bed. We then found where they came from and used first aid kit tape to stop their entry ourselves. The maid was kind and helpful, the others not great.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location, easy walk to restaurants in north guiones and to the beach (about 5 minutes). Hotel grounds were nice and well cared for. Bed was comfortable, cozy hammocks and outdoor areas.

Pros: Very serene and relaxing environment, located in a beautiful area. Monkeys are on the property so that was cool. Very friendly helpful staff who even offered to drive me to where I was going at night. Loved my bungalow! Very comfy beds.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Bismarck is the best! He’s always friendly, upbeat, and accommodating. We rented a car and stayed at Jungle’s Edge. It’s about 5 min from the main center and beach. Food and drinks were great. We felt that all our stuff was safe there as well when we left to check out a different city for a couple days.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The food was good at the restaurant, the pool had a nice view of the mountain.
Cons: The AC room we stayed in was small, dark & dank. The bathroom floor was slimy & there was poor ventilation, so it smelled bad. For $80/ night, this left much to be desired.
7.1 Good
Pros: It is at jungle edge
Cons: A bit of a walk to town but worth it.
7.5 Good
Pros: The ambience, restaurant of the hotel, very nice food, pricy though.
Cons: We booked a bungalow via internet - and changed it to the room in a house upon arrival. From the pictures in booking.com it’s not really obvious what bungalow will look like- nature lovers will love it.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Close to everything, great restaurant area w a brick oven stove and hammock chairs, a huge area for martial arts and yoga, situated in the middle of the jungle
Cons: No real locks on the doors and only a curtain separating you in the bathroom from the outside
4.6 Okay
Pros: Restaurant/lounge/garden area was pleasant.
Cons: Ugly pool atop 66 steps at owner's house On-line photos are not accurate. Breakfast expensive. The 'suites' comprise small rooms opening onto unkempt garden area. The place seems like a 'work in progress' and needs TLC. Lack of water supply (probably beyond their control) but with guests' comfort in mind they should have readily provided jugs of fresh water. Bismark, the lady chef and our maid were the nicest people.
7.9 Good
Pros: Friendly staff, comfy and quiet.
Cons: Location was a bit far from the beach and town for me
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing special
Cons: It is clearly over-priced and difficult to reach by the road! I don’t recommend

Cons: Having to leave
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing views overlooking the ocean and the rain forest. Fantastic set of infinity pools and jacuzzi. Sunset views are stunning. Great restaurant on-site and super friendly staff.
Cons: Nothing. Just be aware that you are in the middle of the rainforest so despite screen doors etc the occasional ants, spiders , gecko etc will find its way into your room :-). Also mischievous coatis ( raccoons) may try to open your balcony doors ! Hotel is a little bit removed from the main beaches, restaurants so own transport is useful.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Being above the nature reserve meant seeing all sorts of amazing animals and birds most days, and being on a hill meant the view, especially the sunsets were incredible. The staff are just fantastic and so friendly and the facilities were great! The swimming pools were also great, the infinity pools looking out over the water - we wanted to spend every day there!
Cons: Location was more out of the way than we thought, but tuk tuks were easy enough to get.

Pros: Nice pool. Pretty landscaping. Clean.
Cons: Expensive for what we got. Thought we were getting a poolside room, but didn’t. No views, no balcony, no juice at breakfast. No chairs or umbrellas available for beach which wasn’t clear. Would not have stayed if known. Never got the extra blanket asked for, only a sheet.

Oh, and the howler monkeys came to play outside my front window a couple times...what’s not to love!
Cons: Leaving.
