It's a beautiful Rancho with a lounge common space, a little yoga studio and a big salt water pool. Ten rooms surround the main Rancho along with a lush garden and hammocks. There are a delicious vegetarian restaurant/cafe/juice bar and a little spa in the property. Five minutes walking to the beach and across the street from an awesome little grocery store, italian gelato, pizza slice and ten more dining options. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.

Nosara - a deserted paradise! The Living Hotel is really beautiful - as is Nosara beach. My only caution is that September and October the whole town literally closes down. I booked 5 nights in September thinking it was "off season" (e.g. more rain than normal and fewer people). I didn't expect all the restaurants and shops to be closed. It was like a ghost town the day we arrived, very surreal! After we got oriented, we found some spots for dinner (10 Pies has great pizza, fish tacos and tuna poke salad, Sushi Mar has a great bento box, and Rosie's has delicious traditional Tico breakfast) but to get a good juice or coffee you have to venture to Harmony Hotel on the other side of town. Also if you want to surf make sure to communicate with a school or rental place - we lucked out and found a board at Nosara Surf Academy (thanks Kimbo!!) otherwise the only open shop is on the other side of town. All that said, if you enjoy some peace and quiet (and you don't mind missing the juices), it's a great time to visit this beautiful beach at a discounted price.

We loved the Living Hotel. We were there off season and it was quiet and very peaceful. We loved Jasmine's Kitchen on site. Our room was clean and cozy. We'll be back.

Living Hotel is a peaceful spot just a 5 minute walk from the beach and in close proximity to some of Nosara's best eats (in my opinion!) as well as surf shops, the town laundromat, and the mini super (which is right across the street). Hard to beat the location, yet when you step on to the property you feel like you're miles away from everything. Jasmine's Cafe is part of this hotel, and has easily the best (and healthiest) food I ate while on a two-week stay in Nosara. Amazing smoothies and primarily vegan meals that nourish the mind and body. There's also a kitchen at the hotel available for guests' use! There was a lot of construction noise happening while I was here (the town is booming!) and the hotel is popular with families which can make the pool area a little hectic (relatively speaking - the hotel only has 10 rooms or so). If you're looking for lots of quiet get one of the rooms in the back (rooms 3, 4, or 5).

Great place for the price. Pool and grounds are awesome. Good location. There is new construction going on across the street, but otherwise peaceful!

This is an authentic piece of Nosara new comers to the area will really enjoyed after the long trek from Liberia. 5-10 minutes walk to incredible playa Guiones. Quick in/out by 4by4 to great food and nightlife.
