Not much to say here except that KayaSol is an amazing place! Great location, a stone’s throw from one of the safest and most beautiful beaches I have seen in all of Costa Rica. Good restaurant! GREAT pool! Room was perfect, hot water, safe, no need for AC. Friendly staff, surfboards for rent. I met cool people from all over... More

We stayed at Kaya Sol for 8 days this spring and it was very good value for what we got. The property is beautiful and well maintained. Rooms are basic but clean and have all of the amenities that we needed (private bathroom, small bar fridge, screened in patio). We were in suite #5. the location was ideal. Only a... More

We stayed here in two different places, one in Room 10 and also in the beach house. Both places were fabulous. Very affordable for the generally expensive Nosara and wonderful with the kitchen and all its supplies. A short walk to the beach and a wonderful small pool with a waterfall. The restaurant/bar has very good food to offer and... More

March 2014. Kaya Sol has room options for everyone and every budget. Affordable, clean, good food, good people. In room safe was great for valuables, quiet time at 10pm so no late night noise, easy walk to the beach. the luscious gardens made for a jungle feel, especially with monkeys and iguanas hanging out in the property trees. Staff and... More

We visited KayaSol in February 2014 and it was as promised; affordable, clean, comfortable, friendly and relaxing. We stayed in the beach house, it was great! We had 3 couples and it was roomy and clean. With the exception of a few lights that needed to be replaced there were no issues. Plenty of room to put your surf boards... More

Three of us couples stayed in a beach house. The house was large, there were dishes, pots, silverware etc already there. Granted, it reminded me of college when I had a kitchen full of dishes that were hand-me-downs but it was a great homey feel. It made me wonder if people that stay there might leave things they purchased for... More

We picked staying at the Kaya Sol hotel on a whim, looked close to the beach and that sold us- I could go on and on about what a great place this was, it was our center for the entire vacation- The rooms were comfortable in size, beds were a little stiff but you do enough during the day that...

The best thing about Kaya Sol is that you can choose the accommodation level you want, and they will have it. Their rooms range from suites that include kitchens, to studios without bathrooms, to hostel rooms. If you're on a budget, this place offers great options for a (relatively) reasonable price (in Nosara). I personally would bypass the hostel here,... More
