One of the coolest hotels we’ve ever stayed at!
We were beyond thrilled with this hotel. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our room was absolutely beautiful as well were the hotel grounds. My only disappointment was that I only booked 2 nights. I would have liked to stay longer!

We stayed at Hotel Guiones for 7 nights and could not have been happier. Every morning, we started our day with a delicious breakfast with fresh, healthy ingredients made by the talented cooking staff. The coffee was superb! That was followed by yoga and stretching at the secluded yoga platform and then a swim in the saltwater pool. The pool area was a tropical oasis with lush, abundant foliage, a soothing waterfall and the gentle sounds of varied birds and other wildlife. We spent the afternoons exploring the pristine beaches and nearby nature trails, trying out fresh local dishes and tasty beverages in the nearby eateries and shopping at the lovely little shops of Playa Guiones. Evenings were spent watching gorgeous sunsets and then either dining out or heading back for dinner at the bar at Al Local, chatting with the surfing crowd who like to hang out there. All the staff at Hotel Guiones were exceptionally warm, gracious and helpful. Muchas gracias! We absolutely loved our stay and hope to return in the future. Pura Vida! S & G

6/10 Good

The hotel borders the main road between Nosara and Samara which is very busy and super loud - trucks, ATVs, motocycles etc. If you’re in the rooms at the top of the property (1-6), it’s constant noise day and night which is frustrating in such a beautiful garden jungle. It’s far from peaceful and the nature ‘s sounds and tranquility are overpowered by the road’s constant bustle. Further down the property is a bit quieter.

Nice hotel with a great location. Staff was helpful in every way. The hotel is close to shops and the beach. It is set within the natural environment so it feels very connected to nature.
