This is the place.
We had planned to stay 5 nights but were so taken with this hotel and Nosara that we ended up staying 9. Our room (the Eco) was clean, modern, quiet, and comfortable with a full kitchen. The property is beautiful and impeccably maintained with easy access to the beach down a private path. The included breakfast is generous and delicious. There’s a good selection of surfboards for rent (foamies, longboards, funboards) on site. Restaurants and stores are an easy 5 minute walk. The owners and staff are kind and gracious, happy to book surf lessons, dinner reservations, massage, etc. We will be back!

Beautiful property with owners who truly care about their guests. The hotel has a private path to the beach and is very convenient to several restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk. The apartment was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. Breakfast was included....delicious and filling!
