Off The Beaten Path
Nosara is known as an “Off The Beaten Path Resort Town without the Resorts in one of the world’s foremost Blue Zones.” People are happier here, healthier and they live longer. We invite you to come and discover the true meaning of “Pura Vida,” the “Pure Life.”
“We love this place so much. Stayed here on our first trip to Costa Rica 4 years ago, and again this year! Walking distance (less than 5min) to all restaurants, beach access, wonderful staff, beautiful rooms, it’s the whole package! There’s no concierge desk, so more of an airb&b style stay. We loved that aspect of it because it feels small and local. Highly highly recommend!” Sadie Rayne
Beachfront Air Suite
“What a gem of a place! Above my expectations, excellent location right near the town centre and also a short private path directly to the beach. Our two-tiered balcony was incredible, facing the private garden below. The room was large, air conditioned, very nicely decorated and so clean! Would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Nosara!” Melissa MacWilliams
“Amazing location and amazing service. Staff is nice and respond quickly. this small hotel is perfect for intimacy and close to everything you would need during your stay. I strongly recommend this hotel for couple or small family:-)” Julie Rainville
A Life Changing Experience
“This place was simply awesome! Perfect location short walking distance to all the shops and restaurants, but tucked into a side street with little traffic. We loved having the private path to walk to the beach it made it feel like an isolated jungle! The rooms were super clean and nice and the staff was incredibly helpful!” Jacob Mendelson
BEST VACATION EVER
“I stayed at iluminar en January 2022 and I love the place because is a small boutique place with beautiful rooms and bathrooms. The decoration is amazing, it’s a calm place and it’s in the first line of the jungle pad. It’s really close to some restaurants. I stayed at one of the first flor rooms and it was really nice.” Jennifer Leibovici
Earth Suite at Illuminar
“My wife and i stayed here for 2 weeks. Ground floor room with king bed. Romantic. Simple. Private, secluded, quiet and steps to the beach. Even a private kitchenette. Like a studio apartment in a small beachy condo building. Rancho outback, fire pit, WiFi in rooms, lovely staff, beautiful flowers and artwork. A great mid level stay and high level location. If you like to go do early surfs and early bedtimes ( before 10pm) just know there’s a venue (Norte) across the street that plays loud club music on Thursday and Saturday nights until 10pm. The town is working on shutting down loud music like this. But mostly it’s not an issue. Just be mindful that this is a quiet place but in a busy part of town, which we liked. Can walk everywhere. Didn’t need a car or golf cart or anything. Tuk Tuks available everywhere. Restaurants, atm, deli, yoga spots, cafes, surf shops and beach all right there. Even laundry service down the street! Cleaning service is free and available every day. Definitely tip all the staff at the end! These people work hard! Loved the owner, Ryan and management contact, Williams. They do everything via WhatsApp. Super easy check in and out.” Ben Curtis
