If you're going to Playa Guiones, there's no better place to stay. Olas Verdes has large clean rooms (we got a suite), and the Manglar restaurant on site is one of the best in town. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay perfect, including doing same-day laundry (when you're surfing the muddy & wet gear piles up). We went there for the Women's Surf Bootcamp with Safari Surf and Andrea Diaz. It was my second time there and I'll be back again for sure!

The setting of Olas Verdes is idyllic - we loved the feeling of being in the rainforest and the short walk to the beach is stunning (as is the beach itself). The service was really great - nothing too much trouble, and always with a smile. Our room was ground floor and on the car park side - we found it quite dark, and at our time of visit it was noisy as a result of building works opposite (the hotel were very apologetic and helpful in offering compensating options). We would have found a dryer useful for wet clothes/swimmers - though the free laundry service was an amazing bonus. Great to have surf school/boards on site and a lovely restaurant
and pool setting. We also loved having the bikes to ride and found there were always enough for our family of 5.
We had a great time ziplining nearby and found the walk to /lunch at La Luna on the next beach a great way to spend the middle of the day.

Room Tip: upper floor would be lighter

We spent 7 nights at Olas Verdes with our 8 year old son in a pool side suite. This was our second summer staying in Nosara, but first time staying at Olas Verdes. We had a wonderful stay...the restaurant on site was excellent, the staff always friendly and helpful with organizing activities, and the location was perfect for our family. My husband and son came for the surfing and the beach is just a short/beautiful walk. It’s also very convenient to have Safari Surf School on site. My son did 2 lessons and loved the staff. I would highly recommend them. We also rented an ATV for the week and did a tour with the same company called Nosara ATV rentals which was also located on site. Zip lining with Miss Sky Canopy tours is a must as well. We would absolutely return to Olas Verdes!

The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because of the construction that is taking place directly behind the pool side suite room we were in...it was very loud and all day everyday. Had we known prior to arriving I would have paid more money to change to a room on the other side of the hotel. We never complained about it, as there is nothing the hotel can do. It’s a different property that just backs up to those few rooms. You are not in the room much, but considering it’s rainy season...there was no relaxing or napping during the afternoon storms.

This is truly a wonderful place! We love Nosara and plan to visit each summer.

This was one of the best places to stay. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. They show you around and make sure your stay is perfect. The beach is just a one minute walk through beautiful jungle, and the surf school is there making it easy to go every day if you want. They will also help with any excursions you want to do. The food is delicious, and the service couldn’t be better at the restaurant!

Thank you so much for your kind review! We are fortunate to be located as close to the ocean (and surf!) water as is possible and are so glad you enjoyed the walk through the jungle path.
Hopefully you got your fill of iguanas, howler monkeys, and birds as you walked through! We are also fortunate to have awesome on-site partners, Safari Surf School and Restaurante El Manglar to compliment our hotel. Both offer wonderful services with wonderful staff (and we agree... our staff is pretty great too!) Please come back to visit us again! Pura Vida!!
