We arrived in Nosara without booking ahead and decided to stay at Harbor Reef, this turned into a great decision.
What a great place, the location 5 mins walk from the beach, the room being so bright, clean and airy, the refreshing cool pool by the bar, the luscious gardens, the howling monkeys that live amongst the trees, but the best thing about this place was the staff. We were treated so well, and everyone was so genuinely warm and kind to us, and particularly to our 5 year daughter, she eve had a crowning ceremony.. haha Princess Mila. She was literally treated like royalty.
Another situation we're the staff went above and beyond was when we got our car stuck in the mud, the team were at hand to help us get the car back on the road (yes poor driving skills on my part!).
We loved this place and would highly recommend staying here.

My family stayed at the Harbor Reef over Holy Week Holidays and we had a great stay despite how busy the hotel was! The hotel offers prime location for getting around Nosara and all nearby beaches. It was easy to just hop on one of their free bikes (which our kids loved!) and go and come from the beach as many times as we wanted.
Although the menu is simple, the food was of excellent quality, super fresh, healthy and tasty;they tried to accomodate all of our requests every time. The staff was especially friendly and sweet to our two 11 and 8-year old kids. They even baked chocolate chip cookies with them one afternoon!!

Rooms are simple, but bedding is of the best quality (brand new super comfy mattresses and linens) and best of all, the housekeeping staff does an amazing job keeping the rooms spotless and super neat every morning! They provide additional beds for kids in case they don't want to share, like in our case at no extra charge.

All in all, our family had an amazing time and we were able to surf, enjoy sunsets at the beach, do yoga, enjoy great meals, a movie night and even a pretty cool live concert at the hotel!

Just want to say I think the new Harbor reef looks great. we had lunch there twice during our week in nosara. they allowed my kid to play in pool, the staff was so nice, the food was better than ever. great portion size. and the music was some of the coolest soundtracks we have chilled to all week. great place to spend the week, night or just the day. thanks!

The hotel was very basic but it was spotlessly clean with beautiful grounds. The staff was incredible. From the front desk to Diego in the dining room to the housekeeper, everyone we encountered was incredibly helpful and pleasant all the time. Friendliest staff I think I've ever seen. Very close to the beach, felt very safe, security at the gate all the time but we never felt like it was needed. That's a good sign! We will return here without question. I was there with two children ages 12 and 14.

Room tip: Rooms are basic but very clean.

We stopped in the the Harbor Reef for lunch with a large group. The drinks were great (pitchers) and I had the beetroot risotto which was incredible. I am serious, if you order just one thing, get that. I at with 18 friends and everyone said it was by far the most delicious thing we ordered. If this helps you remember the helpful button below.
