We really enjoyed our time at Bella Vista Mar. The view is absolutely superb, the pool really nice, the house and rooms comfy, the welcome friendly and the breakfast filling. It is a little out of the way and the access is not the easiest but you end up 10-15 minutes walk from playa pelada and a world away from...

We stayed here for 6 nights in July and it was a heavenly piece of paradise. Stunning view of the ocean, great breakfasts, fantastic pool, clean, and Alexa was a wonderful and very knowledgeable hostess. We LOVED it!

Alexa is wonderful and so accommodating to all of her guests. Food was amazing too! Beautiful setting and you were treated like family. I highly recommend Bella Vista Mar! They are also very eco-friendly which I greatly appreciated.

This hotel has very nice views of the ocean. It is kept very clean and tidy. The ambiance is excellent. The breakfasts are excellent. Nosara in February is hot and dry. Bella Vista Mar (BVM) is located well above most of the extremely dusty roads around Nosara. Thats a plus. That location also means that you're relatively some distance away...

Bella Vista Mar is a lovely little oasis just far enough away from the dust and heat of the beach area but not too far to walk and enjoy the beaches and surf. Clean and well kept this little hotel has the an amazing view of the beaches below. If the hotel itself is not lovely enough the staff is...

My boyfriend I stayed at this lovely hotel for the 2 extra days we had in Nosara due to flight cancelations. Alexa was extremely accommodating and made us feel right at home. The property is really beautiful with radiant white, turquoise, and bright green accents throughout. Hummingbirds frequent the feeders that are set out near the pool area. Watching then...

Alexa provides great hospitality. The hotel only has a few rooms and it is very quite and private. We used the shared kitchen a couple times, it is clean and well equipped. Of course there is a nice view as the name suggests. The pool is big enough for a couple laps and deep enough for diving. We saw monkeys...

We traveled to the area for a weekend in the rainy season (October), and there weren't many places open. Found this place on Expedia for great price. Didn't expect much, but we very sooooo surprised.

I had the pleasure of staying here for a night and it was perfect. The views are STUNNING and it was a little cooler in temp, due to the location being on the top of the mountain. It´s a nice walk down to the beach as well. The staff was excellent and I would easily stay here again. Keep up...

We were a mission team of 12 people that stayed here during our trip. The meals we were served, the service we received was far above any place I have stayed and I have travelled extensively. The entire team wants to go back for individual,vacations as well as another mission trip and we won't stay anywhere else. Highly recommend.
