Stellar location at Playa Guiones's north end. The grounds are beautiful, lodging austere. If you're expecting a large suite, book elsewhere. If you plan on spending your time out and about and use the room just for sleeping, look no further. Excellent service, gorgeous community, we'll absolutely return.

We stayed at this hotel only one night so we did not have the opportunity to enjoy all of it. We had a nice, clean room with comfortable beds. There was a closet and a small refrigerator. The bathroom was large; we shared it with another couple - a feature of our particular room. (Some rooms have private bathrooms.) The...

Nice, clean and tidy hotel. It's close to the beach and have bicycles to lent out if you are staying there. The pool area is also nice and it is a huge plus that it is saltwater and not chlorine in the water. Only downside is the howlermonkeys that will wake you up at sunrise and the wifi connection which...

I stayed at the Living hotel on my own for a few nights and everything about this place was great. The pool area was beautiful. They have yoga on site daily, and they have a restaurant which is open from 7-4 daily. Great for smoothies and lunch! The bed was super comfy and there was very minimal outside noise at...

I stayed one night at the Living Hotel on my way to a yoga retreat. The room was small but adequate. Great location. The staff were helpful. The restaurant and cold pressed juices were great. Overall a fine stay for the night. I did think the room was expensive for what it was, but it is a tourist town during...

I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived at the Living Hotel. Would the walls be breathing? Are there eyes watching everywhere? Yes, while it is an unusual name, the place is wonderful. Ariel at the front desk greeted us and went out of her way to ensure our stay was perfect. There are 12 rooms, each with a...

Great little spot to check out in the perfect location of Nosara. You are 'south guiones' so a little more chill than the main block where all the shops are, but great restaurants and bars and surf shacks nearby. The best restaurant / cafe we hit was actually at the living its the little coffee shop they have on property....

We just returned from one of the most relaxing vacation we have taken as a family in years. The Living Hotel was our home base. The hotel is small but is simple, elegant and relaxing setting. It was clean and comfortable with a great housekeeping staff. The reception was handled by an exceptionally friendly staff that arranged transportation to and...

We loved our stay at Living Hotel. My family of 6 all stayed comfortably and everyone that worked there was extremely nice and welcoming- we feel into a great routine and the hotel had everything we needed. Yoga, Sufboard room, cafe onsite. It was perfect - thank you!

I stayed at Living Hotel for five nights during Christmas holidays. I was very happy there. The hotel has well designed layouts and the ground is beautifully kept. There is a pool in center and all the cabins were tucked in behind the rush trees and plants, and it reminded me of a resort I stayed in Indonesia. I never...
