Dave and Russel are amazing hosts. An oasis from the dusty town and beach clubs but minutes from the beach. Surfed 3 weeks in March and went back for Christmas. I'll definitely be going back. Infinity pool looking into the jungle. Fine cuisine. Great company.

The Green Rooms is perfect! Great quiet location, just a few minutes walk from both the beach and the main street. All the facilities you need - beautiful pool, well equipped kitchen, new clean shower room. We had a room in the pool house, not the main house. You get the privacy of your own place but can spend time...

No better a place to experience a mixture of surf and jungle, then to stay at the aptly named ‘green rooms’. Set amongst an impressive back drop of rain forest, a sense of tranquillity and serenity is in abundance here. Located on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula, the area surround the Green Rooms is a haven of natural...
