This place rocks! Breathtaking view, choose the 2nd floor room, great nature all around the property, the pool is great too. They have yoga + massages + reiki teachers if u are into it. Outstanding price vs quality.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few nights while visiting Nosara and it was amazing! We stayed in the Samara room (main building, upstairs) and the ocean view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful. Alexa was very helpful, whether it was with local advice or directions, and always made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was delicious every morning...

Room in main building very clean with a large communal balcony next door, good pool and large event cabana, good view of the sea over the jungle. Nosaro is had to navigate and we got lost a number of times, the roads all look the same (bad!), but that was the only down side everything else was great and the...

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 nights but we would have stayed the whole week if we could! Alexa is a very friendly and helpful host, she arranged our restaurant reservations, tours and even made sure we had a box breakfast ready when we had to leave at 4AM on our last day. Jolanda makes the best Banana...

My friend and I stayed two nights at Bella Vista Mar. The room was clean, comfortable and had a great view of the sea. Great pool. Breakfast was freshly made and was delicious. It is set at the top of a hill and walking to and from the beach could be difficult for some. Alexa was a lovely host and...

We liked the hotel a lot. Clean, friendly, quiet and great breakfast. The swimmingpool was nice. We had a rental car own car, taking us up and down the hill/to the beach. Bella Vista Mar with Alexa did remind us about the movie "Mamma Mia". We sure enjoyed it!

My husband and I had a very comfortable 8 night stay at Bella Vista Mar. Room was very clean and comfortable. Location is great if you want an "away from it all" vibe without actually being remote. Alexa, the owner, is very nice and knowledge about the area. Tasty home made breakfast daily. Do call and ask for directions!

I have been to Costa Rica many times and Bella Vista Mar is a beautiful place indeed. Clean, great views and sunsets but overall, I felt like I was staying at someone's house, like a bed and breakfast perhaps, and less like a hotel. It's very nice to be out of town on the hillside, but the commute into town...

Hi Road Trip Girl, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review for us. We are definitely a bed and breakfast - not a hotel, so the fact that you felt like you were in our home is not a bad thing. We don't have a bar or restaurant so it is quiet up here - just...

I went with my wife in 2012 and we fell in love with this hotel. It is totally beautiful, the cleanliness, the quietness, the decoration, everything. It's located up in the hills (you need a car or a truck to go to the beach), so the view is AMAZING. The sunset left us speechless. You were able to hear the...
