As stated by other users: I'd like to begin by stating that this is not a five star hotel/resort, and if you're interested in that type of lodging, there's other great options in Guiones that serve that exact purpose. That being said, if you're on a tighter budget but still want good, clean, and close accommodation to the water, this...

My boyfriend and I traveled with another couple last week. Kaya Sol was the perfect place to stay. For the great price we had comfy beds, the water pressure in the shower was great and there was plenty of hot water. We stayed in an upstairs suite with no AC and had no complaints. With the fans going and the...

We just returned back home from a week in Nosara. This trip was our second to the area, and each time we stayed at KayaSol. It is difficult to find the right words to explain how incredible this place is. Not only is it a stunning environment and a short walk to the beach, but it is a friendly space...

Our first trip to Nosara was better than we expected, mainly because of KayaSol. You've got a 3 minute walk to the beach, outdoor showers, a pool, and plenty of shade to lounge in after a surf. The hotel's restaurant was steps away from our room; busy around dinner and rightfully so, many a delicious meal was enjoyed there during...

We stayed here for 2 nights and fell in love with Nosara. The actual room was cute and very spacious (we rented a studio w/ air conditioning!) and the pool was wonderful. The location of the hotel is central to everything (restaurants, a store that sells beer and surf lessons). We rented a 4 wheeler and were able to explore...

Let me start with my disclaimer. If you are looking for a five star hotel/resort, then look elsewhere. If you are looking for a great place to stay on your surf adventure with friendly staff and a great restaurant, then stary here.

I just returned from a 10-day stay at the Kayasol Surf Hotel. Everything was perfect. The rooms are beautiful, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The pool is amazing with a gorgeous waterfall, a great place to spend time in the heat of the day, or anytime, including a moonlit dip. Best of all, the lovely staff couldn't make for...

Thanks to everyone there at Kaya Sol, Our trip would not have been good without all your help calling taxis and helping us find things to do. I am full of joy just thinking of you and how kind you all were. The last day the gardener took time to cut us up a coconut (no small task) they are...
