I was booked here for 2 nights before moving to a spot closer to the beach for surf lessons (which was the goal of my Nosara visit). L'Acqua Viva is beautifully designed, and in my experience spotlessly clean. All the staff that I encountered were very welcoming and professional in a friendly Tico way. I had a huge single room away from the road; no noise or dust. I ate dinner at the hotel one night, and found the fish and vegetables well prepared; they have a nice wine list (by Central American standards). It was VERY quiet - I only heard two other guests, and never saw another guest. Perhaps some negative reviews, and their somewhat remote location (a bit of a trek to the beach as other travelers have mentioned), contribute to the relative emptiness. I tried both bicycling and walking to the beach - neither is particularly pleasant or safe given the winding gravel road - but when I asked, the staff very willingly called and paid for a taxi for me (in lieu of the usual golf cart, which was being repaired). I think this could be a great place for non-surfers who are looking for quiet relaxation in a beautiful tropical environment.
