Without you, this would be a nice little hotel, but with you, it is a wonderful hotel with a laid back, happy-go-lucky atmosphere which you create. We partook in surf lessons from Enrique and happily enjoyed Spacialle's home made chocolates. Enrique also roasts...

Giardino Tropicale is a private, sustainably managed hotel in a great location. It's only a short walk to the village and 5 mins to the beach, which is breathtakingly huge. On arrival we were upgraded to a deluxe room, which was a nice surprise. The room was fully equipped, clean and spacious. Although it was hot, we didn't need the...

It was the second time we stayed at Giardino Tropicale, a wonderful boutique hotel in Giones beach, Nosara. A number of guests there were return visitors, which tells you a lot about the wonderful and relaxing vibe of the hotel. It is a testimony to the management, led by Specialle. She and Enrique are welcoming and generous with their time...

We had a large family room with a sitting area, dining table and kitchen. There was an extra small room with bunk beds for extra sleeping space. Wrap around balcony, overlooking pool was functional as...

We enjoyed everything about our stay at this hotel. Spacialle and Enrique are very welcoming hosts and always on hand to help. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a private verandah.

Spacialle and Enrique were excellent hosts. We stayed in the "treehouse" A-frame and loved it , especially the covered lanai with the hammock. We also enjoyed the delicious and relaxing breakfast every morning. The beach is an easy 2-3 block walk so the location in Nosara is perfect. Also walking distance to the mini malls and shopping. Spacialle was very...

Just stayed at Giardino for 7 days and had a great time. Spacialle and Enrique were great hosts and made our stay that much better. They boast the largest pool in Nosara with a great tropical vibe. Heading back in a couple months.
