Villa Mango B&B - Nosara - Bedroom
1
9.5 Excellent (308 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Villa Mango B&B is located at the edge of the Nosara Biological Reserve and within walking distance to the beach of Pelada. It features an outdoor, salt-water swimming pool and free Wi-Fi throughout the property. The rooms offer rustic décor with fans, jungle and sea views, and terraces with hammocks. The bathrooms are private and come with shower. The on-site restaurant serves a full breakfast for guests to enjoy, included in the room rate. Guests can also find meal options and bars in the area of the beaches of Guiones Beach, 3.5 km away or Pelada, 1km away. Villa Mango B&B is a 10-minute walk from the beach of Pelada and from activities like horseback riding, fishing and yoga. Nosara Local Airport is a 6-minute drive away and the Nosara Town Centre is 4.5 km away. We recommend a vehicle when staying on Nosara.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: •Friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, and hospitable owners •Peaceful and private •Beautiful and tasteful decor •On-site pool •Jungle and ocean views •Walking distance to beachfront + ocean •HUGE room and private bathroom with soaps + towels supplied •A/C •Inclusive breakfast, which we sadly left before. The owner did pack us a bagged breakfast though with some bananas and the most delicious homemade cinnamon/raisin/nut bread, mmmm! •We truly wish we could have stayed longer!!
Cons: •The only thing I can think to note, is the road up to the B&B. Very steep, rocky, and lots of loose gravel. We used a tuktuk coming from Ostional and it was all fine and dandy! We took our time. Would not recommend walking up with all your luggage, though!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great pool & breakfast!
10.0 Excellent

Pros: Very friendly staff. Very beautiful hotel. Everything is perfect to relax and surf.
7.1 Good
Pros: Good location, very close to the beach. Some food is decent (e.g. casada, calamari, guacomole & chips, waffles). Not too many rooms, which means the hotel was not too crowded. The pool area is rather nice.
Cons: Breakfast could contain more protein (meat) options for male guests. Otherwise, it would be nice if the quality of what you already have on the menu increased (for breakfast, lunch and dinner). Since Day 1, in my room there was a thick black hair in the shower either left by the cleaning staff or previous guests. Despite them cleaning the room twice, the hair remained. A bit gross.

5.4 Okay
Pros: Nice pool. Pretty landscaping. Clean.
Cons: Expensive for what we got. Thought we were getting a poolside room, but didn’t. No views, no balcony, no juice at breakfast. No chairs or umbrellas available for beach which wasn’t clear. Would not have stayed if known. Never got the extra blanket asked for, only a sheet.

Spacious rooms with a wine bottle, water bottle with the hotel logo and some mango passion fruit juice as a thank you for staying during a time with construction going on.
Cons: I didn't like the location of the pool. It was central to the check in room, game room/lounge, resturant and some rooms. I would prefer to have the pool off to the side where it was not the focus point; however I am not there for the pool, I am there for the beach

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was by far our favourite place/accommodation we stayed at in Costa Rica and maybe ever in all our years of travel! The staff were all exceptional and went out of their way to ensure my family and I were comfortable from the moment we pulled in the driveway. They wouldn't even let us bring our own bags to our room. Hanging out there felt like you were at a dinner party with friends and family. Must mention how great the waiter Herald was to our children and us!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were amazing
Cons: Nothing it was perfect
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved the view and the comfortability. It use to be a place for small groups and they just started opening it up online. It was almost like you rented a house and just a few other people are there with a whole staff to help you with your every whim. You can grab your own drinks from the bar, swim in the pool as late as you like, and there are no room keys. The place was amazing and just up the mountain so it was cooler, less dusty in dry season, and lots more wildlife. Definite gem!
7.1 Good
Pros: Nice rooms, gorgeous bed linen, beautiful views, very good food.
Cons: Lacked a little in atmosphere. Service was just ok.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Hotel Luna Azul is the perfect spot for those looking to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside of Costa Rica. The bungalow accommodation was amazing. Although air conditioning was available we were able to leave the screened windows open and enjoy the fresh air which was delightful. And the private outside shower was a real treat! Beautiful grounds, view, and pool. Rolf and his staff served the best breakfast we had in Costa Rica and dinner was absolutely delicious too. What makes Luna Azul most extraordinary is Rolf and his friendly, courteous staff....not only did Rolf remember us from our visit last year, but also remembered how much we liked our room and gave us the same one!

Pros: Super bungalow with a very comfy bed, lovely view and spacious! Amazing infinity pool and communal area. Incredible sunset! Nothing you can walk to around the hotel but everything you need is there! Very helpful staff who booked us a boat trip to see the turtles as sadly none nesting on the beach during our stay!
Cons: I couldn’t easily find nice walking trails nearby the property but that’s probably the only downside! One benefit would be nice to be offered the chance to have breakfast on the bungalow balconies!

Cons: Nothing
5.8 Okay
Pros: I payed for a room with a private terrace but could not enter the terrace (door was locked)
Cons: The manager (Israël Gomez) was a fake person. No humanity, his only goal is money. He charged me 180 dollar for blood on the sheets. (A cleaning cost I would agree with!) He reacted very unrespectfull without any empathy for the accident. I would not recommand this place because this was so unfair. I never got a payment recievement, he just took the money from my visa without my signature!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Staff was amazing and enjoyed breakfast every morning. We loved hanging out in the pool after a long day at the beach or exploring Nosara.
Cons: I wish the rooms had a dresser. I prefer to unpack in hotels. It makes life so much easier than living out of suitcase.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay at The Nomadic was wonderful!! Everyone on the staff was warm, welcoming and helpful. The property is designed impeccably. It is perfectly modern and yet still feels at one with the nature surrounding it. We were lucky enough to spend time with the owners who have put so much love and attention into the property. Breakfast each morning was great. A chosen menu by the staff and was fresh and made with love. The hotel is located very centrally in Nosara, right between both sides of town and super close to the beach. I would absolutly stay there again and will recommend it to friends and family.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Truly a phenomenal property owned and operated by some of the best people you’ll ever meet. Klay and Janice have created such a friendly and inviting atmosphere, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better place to experience pura vida. Great rooms, food, and an experience made even better by fantastic service and awesome people. Just seriously good vibes here. The hotel is in a great location just a short (<8 minutes) to the water’s edge with easy access to the shops and restaurants of both Guiones proper and Norte. Honestly could not be better situated. The building itself is incredibly well laid out with ample space to stretch out and unwind. There’s even a cool little shop stocked with really cool and hard to find wares. There are great nooks to read or while the day away after a surf. The pool is the perfect place to beat the heat of the day or get some sun in a comfortably lush setting. Board lockers are available and they have literally the coolest outdoor showers to rinse. The rooms are incredibly inviting and comfortable, and best of all, super clean and fresh. Beds are super comfy and will have you well rested and ready to charge the next day. Bathrooms are very clean with fresh towels. The rotating breakfast menu is muy delicioso and hearty. Without a doubt the best deal going in town. Definitely will have you fueled up and ready to hit the lineup. Also, special shoutout to the fresh pressed juices as an added tropical treat. Great hotel, great people, and great vibes! Look no further than the Nomadic.
7.5 Good
Pros: The property is beautiful and quiet. Coming here after loud Tamarindo was so nice.
Cons: Apparently children under 12 aren’t welcome here. However when I booked it the website didn’t mention anything. I arrived at 10pm at night and after I checked in and was completely exhausted the front desk staff mentioned that we may not be able to stay because my 10 year old daughter was with me. I had to wait for him to make some phone calls to have her stay approved. I explained to him that it was late at night and most hotels in the area were booked so there was no place else for us to go. He didn’t care and wanted to check anyway. He made no commitments to refunding our money either if we were kicked out. So beware when checking in here.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff and owners were super friendly and helpful

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This house is a treasure that you need to discover! The rooms are located in the hosts house and they are very comfortable, spacious, clean and with A/C! The bathroom is huge and luxurious with hot water and great pressure. However, the best thing about this place is the hosts: Matteo, Adrianna and Alice. We felt welcome as we were family. Very warm welcome, we connected right away! They let you use all their facilities (kitchen, living room, tv, games, outside land) and they can also cook for you for a little extra (and food is amazing!). Very quiet at night and in the morning we really slept well. The beach is at 5 min drive (20 min walk) and it is one of our favorite beach. We stayed in a room with 4 beds with private bathroom. We will come back for sure!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful hosts that make you feel part of the family! Marbella beach is probably one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica and Casa Alice is the place to be.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were 6 girls from different nationalities. We have travelled along Costa Rica for 6 days before reaching Marbella. The location is a paradise: in nature, without roads (yes, better to drive a 4X4 - general advise to visit the whole peninsula). Matteo and Adriana have waited for us (it took us some time), talked to us in a friendly, tidy, super clean and airy environment! They also prepared us an amazing pizza ! We would recommend their hotel for young people, but also for family and kids! And any person who wants to taste some Costa Rican relaxing and natural house :)

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely love this place. Great location in Guiones, near the beach, right beside Tica Massage, and a short walk from all the shops and bars. There is a fab restaurant on site that serves organic food. I loved the decor and comfort of the room. I arrived completely exhausted from working on the turtle conservation programme at Ostional, and just sunk straight into the most comfortable pillows. The pool area is gorgeous. Best of all they had nobody coming in to my room the day I left so they gave me a late check out until 7pm. I will be back!!
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Position, grounds, restaurant, pool area, staff, wildlife
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The room was beautiful. I loved the color decor, the kitchenette was very well thought out and there was complimentary coffee/tea. I was very comfortable in the bed and between the air-conditioner and the ceiling fan there was plenty of refreshing circulation (which made drying clothes quite easy). The breakfast was delicious and I was able to save half for lunch due to a generous portion. The pool was clean and a lovely place to spend time at. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I also loved that there was live music one night and the band was incredible! All in all my loan travelers stay was 100%
Cons: One of the nights there was a very disturbing noise going on throughout the night that possibly came from air-conditioning machines. It woke me up and I had to put in ear plugs to get back to sleep. The hotel felt a little bit far removed from the other part of town and the walk there was down an unlit, muddy and puddle filled road.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Really nice little hotel just a short walk to the beach with an excellent staff and delicious on-site restaurant/bar.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Convenience to ocean, restaurant has good food & entertainment at night, & a secure place to store surfboards.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great views
4.6 Okay
Pros: The place is beautiful and the rooms very artistic.
Cons: The place was obviously unattended. The pool was very dirty and unusable. Our rooms were not cleaned. We actually had a frog in our toilet making it impossible to use but there was no one around to talk to and no other available restrooms. The girl who made breakfast couldn't speak one word of English and didn't really try to communicate. The receptionist was rarely around and showed no interest to provide any support around local activities like turtle watching or hiking. We actually went to the near hotel and they happily provided us all the help needed. The owner was never around.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely property owners and staff made me feel at home. Very private, tranquil and healthy assortment of breakfast. Dream location for surf enthusiasts.
6.3 Good
Pros: The location is good, proximity to restaurants and beach is very good. Family that runs the property are very nice but they need to be realistic in that the area has many other options for the rate they are charging.
Cons: The first room we stayed in you could hear the people above us the entire time. They moved us but the second room's bathroom was bit outdated and the sofa cushions and the bed mattress very uncomfortable. I had asked for a massage (advertised they have available) and they said there were none for that day. They said they booked at another hotel for me but when I arrived, there was no booking. I just feel for the money this is not a good value.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent in every way. Extremely happy we chose this property for our holiday.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Moana Surf Hotel was beautiful. It is the hotel closest to the beach & maritime zone with a private trail to the ocean. The owners are so gracious and really serve 5-star quality with love. They are avid surfers, so they can share their knowledge of the ocean. And they have a sweet setup for surfboards. The breakfast buffet was probably hands-down one of the best breakfasts I have had at a hotel. The apartment was spacious with a kitchen. All the linens, the dinnerware, etc. are carefully selected. There is a cool lounge area around the pool. It is an amazing property. I have talked to other guests who have come again, and it is definitely a place to visit again and again. If you love the ocean, a cool vibe, good quality & service in a 4-5-star boutique hotel, this is the place. I am very familiar with Nosara, and it is one of the nicest hotels there.
Cons: There was molasses on the outside street, which is what keeps down the dust. It is a good thing, and it only a nuisance for 1x a year, but it is not so fun on your shoes. The owners put cardboard on the sidewalk. And there is a dipping pool for your feet.
10.0 Excellent

6.7 Good
Pros: Nice hotel, delicious breakfast, nice staff, not much going on. Walking distance from town, but I didnt do it bc of the scorching heat & dust. A bit pricey for what it is. Loud young room neighbors, but good experience nonetheless.
Cons: Scorpion in bedroom (which bit me, but not poisionous...I’m still alive). Loud neighbors, driving distance to town.
4.6 Okay
Pros: The villa is pretty amazing, and the location too. Such a pity for the service: you can order some basic food a la carte but I had te worst food. The reception close early afternoon, so if you want a coffee or anything else no way. The yoga shala is simply amazing, but looks like abandoned, with just few yoga classes for week. It’s a pity, the view is stunning!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Loved the location a five minute Tuk tuk away from the local spots. The rooftop yoga was absolutely amazing, cannot beat those views or the breeze. The juice bar might be the thing I loved the most!
Cons: I did find a scorpion in my room the first night. Otherwise, flawless experience.

7.9 Good
Pros: This hotel is a little oasis. We loved our private porch. The pool is long enough to actually swim laps. The restaurant adjacent to the hotel serves great healthy food, and killer spicy margaritas. The general manager is super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about Nosara and Costa Rica in general.
Cons: The hotel could use some maintenance here and there. There were only two bikes available for the entire hotel, so at times we were out of luck.
6.3 Good
Pros: The room was bright and cheerful. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent,
Cons: There was a sewer odor by the pool/dining room area. The pool water seemed a bit dirty to me. There were leaves/debri in the pool and I found a piece of poop (it probably was bird poop) in the pool. I thought the poop was some type of nut until I smelled it.

Inside the room was very clean and comfortable. Nice that each room had it own private outdoor space with a hammock. The garden was lush and tropical with monkeys, iguanas and birds.
Cons: Outside space had a lot of ‘bugs’ in and around the dishes and cutlery, probably could use a good cleaning. Inside the room was very clean and tidy, very nicely arranged.
9.2 Excellent

Cons: Liked it all.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Gardens Hotel far exceeded our expectations. We travelled with my 15 yo to Costa Rica for Spring Break for the first time and found the Gardens on Bookings.com. Everything was fantastic. The hotel manager Especial and her husband made us feel like we were part of the family always making sure that we had what we needed. Every morning we were greeted by the friendly staff for breakfast by the pool (this was included with the rate) and we enjoyed lingering around the beautiful and lushly landscaped property. There was an on your honor mini bar by the pool with drinks both alcoholic and non as well as fresh coconut water. The restaurant el Local had the freshest food and great variety. We ate a couple of meals in town but found our hotel had the best option so ate there most of the time. The staff will also help to arrange tours for you as we went on a SUP tour of the mangroves. The other added bonus was the hotel was a short walk from the beach. They also have surf boards and boogie boards to rent at low cost for the day. I can't wait to go back!
Cons: Everything was perfect. The only think I didn't like was having to leave!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It’s a quiet calm place, rooms are clean and comfortable.
Cons: I like almost everything but I believe it’s not as close as the beach as I would have like. It’s like six or seven hundred meters, in my opinion a pretty considerable distance to go walking

10.0 Excellent
Pros: When we arrived the first day the staff kindly upgraded our booking. Since they were doing some fix ups to the pool area / garden before high season we were moved to a room that was going to be more quite. The room was great! Large with a nice bathroom, small kitchen and big balcony. The location is great. They’ve made their own path down to the beach so that you don’t have to take the detour along the road to access the beach. We didn’t use the yoga facilities but the looked great and well organized. Last but not least we must give the staff and owners Ryan + wife our best recommendations. They were very helpful and always made sure we had the best stay possible. Thanks guys!
