It's a beautiful Rancho with a lounge common space, a little yoga studio and a big salt water pool. Eight rooms surround the main Rancho along with a lush garden and hammocks. There are a delicious vegetarian restaurant/cafe/juice bar, a yoga studio with a daily class 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. Best location in Playa Guiones.

Everything about our stay at the Living Hotel was fantastic. The entire staff was extremely friendly and went above and beyond in terms of being helpful, from everything ranging from laundry to day trip recommendations to guidance on checking out the nesting turtles at Ostional. The amenities were also excellent, and the communal kitchen in the rancho was very well stocked. (Not that it was entirely necessary since the accompanying restaurant/juice bar, Jasmine's, was also fantastic -- Jasmine is a magician in the kitchen.) We will definitely be coming back! :)

We really enjoyed our stay at Living Hotel in Playa Guiones. The space is beautifully designed and has a simple aesthetic of wood beams and open space by the pool. The rooms were serene and basic with bed and mini-fridge, clean and well appointed with good closet space around the connected bathroom. We were there at low season so fewer people around and some of the shops/restaurants were shut down, but a nice local scene for yoga, surf, sodas, pizza/gelato spots all easily walkable. Check in was easy and friendly. Thanks for
