Our family (2 adults, 2 young kids) stayed for 5 nights in April 2021. The hotel grounds are beautifully maintained, we heard and saw monkeys often, and the pool was a hit for our kids. There are a few shallow areas where our 1 year old could crawl around in the water which was perfect. The hotel is very eco friendly and even supplies you with an aluminum water bottle for you to use during your stay and take home with you. The staff were extremely kind and we also really enjoyed the restaurant on site , El Manglar. The food was great and it was so convenient to have right on site when we needed it. The beach path is fun too where we saw hundreds of crabs ducking into their holes as we walked by. The beach is amazing and perfect for surfers of all levels. One thing to note if you have young kids is that the beach itself has very little shade. Overall we had an amazing stay and would definitely return!

Thank you for your thoughtful and thorough review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found our hotel to be family (and eco) -friendly. It sounds like you got to experience all that the area has to offer - including the natural wildlife (the Halloween crabs are especially entertaining this time of year!). Hopefully the "ranchos" on the beach provided some shade relief for your family. Of course, as you found, the pool is a great spot to get out of the sun and cool off, too. We will pass your kind words on to our staff and our colleagues at El Manglar. We look forward to your return! Until then.... pura vida!

We stayed in the four bedroom house attached to the Olas Verdes Hotel known as Casa Nacho. The service from the hotel was impeccable, as well as a maid included for 3 hours each day. It was wonderful to have the tips and suggestions from the staff, and the restaurant available in just a few steps, but also be able to enjoy the quiet and independence of having our own home to stay in. We will definitely come back. Luis and his team were complete standouts in their service and assistance.

This is a lovely little boutique hotel. I loved my apartment, and had the best sleep of my whole trip in Costa Rica there. The apartments were well furnished and with tea and coffee for use too. The breakfasts were nice too. Surfers are very well served here, but not being a surfer, I felt the location was probably not my favourite in Costa Rica. But the staff were great - booking me onto a morning SUP, and going above and beyond with customer service - particularly when I found out I needed a Covid test before flying home. Lovely, and friendly staff in the bar and restaurant as well. Thanks to everyone for helping me enjoy my stay in Nosara.

Thank you for your review, Ruth. We are so pleased you chose to stay with us - and you got a good night sleep!! We will pass your kind remarks on to our staff. While it is true that surfing is a very popular activity in Nosara and we do have a surf school on site, there are many other activities in the area (like SUP, which we hope you enjoyed). If you come back to stay with us, our staff will be pleased to arrange a variety of experiences for you. There is fishing, yoga, kayaking, ziplining, and waterfall hikes, to name a few. And of course we provide a bicycle for use to explore the area on your own. Thank you again for being our guest. Pura vida!!

Will be coming back for a longer stay next time. Perfect amenities in the most comfy room and the ease of getting to the beach was priceless. Grounds and restaurant onsite were both very inviting and delicious!

Olas Verdes Hotel was again a superb experience for us. The room was comfortable and big. The restaurant is delicious. The Safari Surf School is right there on site and the coaches are around to always speak with both in their office and in the restaurant area. The surf school is professional in every way. Everyone mingles and is friendly. The staff are the greatest asset! Friendly, sincere, caring and helpful always.
