Great location!
Rooms were clean, coffee & pour over for daily use, small kitchen sink & utensils if needed. the onsite restaurant had great food for all meals, great drinks, very friendly staff, highly recommend this place. LIked that it’s not a big touristy hotel & is down to earth where you get a feel for the local culture.

Nice little hotel. Excellent location
Great location close to the beach. A little quieter there vs right next to all the busiest restaurants. Issue with the AC one night but it was fixed promptly. Kids liked the pool

8/10 Very good

Very nice and friendly place
It is a lovely place. The staff at the reception and team at the restaurant are super friendly and make the stay very nice. Daily cleaning and huge size nice breakfasts! Every room has a kitchenette with a coffee maker which is nice. One thing that was a bit of wobble for me is that I stayed in room N1. Everyone was passing by. So you have to keep your windows always closed with curtains and it was dark and at times a bit nosy. It is not a cheap place but then Nosara is generally very expensive and comparing to other hotels it ended up been a reasonable deal. And the place is close to the beach.

8/10 Very good

LOCATION IS PHENOMENAL. Sunset Shack is the little sibling to Harmony Hotel across the street. My room was well tended to and breakfast is included at El Chile (nice surprise). Room and property were very clean, I did however find 2 large ants, and multiple little legged worms in my room over my stay which were easy enough to get in a cup and throw outside - not unexpected being in Costa Rica/Jungle territory. What I didn't know until my last day was that you can charge food from Harmony Hotel over to your room at Sunset Shack if you go over the the juice bar or restaurant so that's a handy hack if you don't want to be carrying your card around! Would definitely stay there again, perfect spot if you want to be close to Guiones/Surf (which was my intention)
