6/10 Good

The hotel borders the main road between Nosara and Samara which is very busy and super loud - trucks, ATVs, motocycles etc. If you’re in the rooms at the top of the property (1-6), it’s constant noise day and night which is frustrating in such a beautiful garden jungle. It’s far from peaceful and the nature ‘s sounds and tranquility are overpowered by the road’s constant bustle. Further down the property is a bit quieter.

Nice hotel with a great location. Staff was helpful in every way. The hotel is close to shops and the beach. It is set within the natural environment so it feels very connected to nature.

A Delightful little place close to nature
We had a very nice stay at The Gardens. We had the large room on the second floor. There are only 11 rooms. The balcony with all the trees and pool area were very nice, and at sunset lots of birds, and even one-day monkeys. The restaurant was good, and especially the "our fish" dinners cooked by Chef Henry and Chef Emerson. We were very impressed with their delicious presentations of our freshly caught Tuna.

Great beach vacation
Beautiful setting but noisy next to highway. Enjoyed the outside patio kitchen setup. Short vacation walk to beach. Lousy wifi. Great free breakfast. Beach was outstanding surfing.

Ideal stay in Nosara!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Gardens! The staff was really nice and helpful and the property was beautiful! We really enjoyed our own private patio and the yoga shala they had on site. The rooms were decorated very cozy and the location is super convenient so you don’t have to drive through a ton of dirt road to get there.

10/10 Exceptional

I absolutely loved my stay at The Gardens Hotel. The property was gorgeous, the salt water pool was very relaxing and refreshing, rooms were very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed! The daily included breakfast was so delicious (get the breakfast burrito it's to die for!), and the spicy margarita at El local was one of the best I've ever had! To top it all off the staff super friendly and very accomodating. Elizabeth greeted us with a warm smile and hello every day, and went above and beyond to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. Definitely recommend staying here if you're travelling to Nosara!
