The grounds of the retreat are very well kept and the trails wind around the property and down to the road that leads to the beach. We took one of the small cottages with two rooms. The kitchen was fine for a couple days and the super on the road to Nosara is very well stocked. It was very quiet at night and the beds were great. The walk to the beach is pleasant and the beach is very nice.
I generally prefer fans to AC, unless it is extremely hot. One room had a ceiling fan with only one speed, high. The other room had no fan at all. Given that you want to close the door to keep out mosquitoes at night, this made it a little stuffy.
The other problem was a lack of WiFi in the cottage, an amenity available in even very inexpensive Costa Rican hotels. They said they would call somebody to address the problem, but I got the idea it was not a new issue. There was working WiFi at the main house.
Breakfast was included and it was excellent fruit, coffee, toast, etc. There was no hot breakfast option. If you want eggs and pinto, you will have to drive. They did insist on knowing what you would want the day before.
