Thank you for your kind words and painting a beautiful picture of enjoying time here! The construction is finished and now we have another great yoga studio full of classes right around the corner!

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.

Thank you for your stay and enjoying the best room in the house! So glad you had time to enjoy the surf school and the pool! La Luna is a great sunset spot, and now the Lagarta has opened back up, so there's a second Pelada sunset place again. Hope to see you again!

We are repeat visitors and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. The Hotel is nestled in the jungle, yet steps from the beach and where all the action is. The pool is gorgeous and surrounded by paths and gardens, which are visited by the local wildlife: howler monkeys, a huge resident green iguana, hummingbirds, butterflies and of course some domestic...

I'm so glad I chose Giardino Tropicale for my stay in Nosara. Spacialle and Enrique truly made me feel at home. My deluxe room was perfect and even came equipped with a hammock.
