We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moana. Not only was our room (the Eco) beautifully and tastefully decorates, but so clean. It was perfect for us and our two children. We didn’t use the kitchen to it’s full potential but it was awesome knowing we had a full stove, fridge etc. breakfast each morning was delicious and healthful, with enough variety for everyone in our family. One night the power went out and when we returned from dinner the owners had placed candles all around the hotel including beautiful lanterns in our room. Our children loved playing in the pool and we relaxed in the hammocks and on the outdoor couches in the covered area (even during the pouring rain). They have a private walk down to the ocean which is fantastic and beach chairs and umbrellas to take with you at no charge. The “fruity water “ as our children called it was such a nice touch available 24hrs in the kitchen/living area. It was all lovely. Everyone who works at the hotel is so hospitable and helpful - we can’t wait to return and we will definitely chose the Moana again and recommend it to anyone heading to Nosara. Sometimes it is stressful to book a place online, but I can assure you that if you book here you will not regret it.

Quiet, beautiful boutique resort

Moana is a lovely boutique resort; so serene, tropical, and nestled in the lush forest that leads to the famous Guiones Beach. The breakfast is delicious, full of fresh local fruits, and yummy omelet, great coffee! I wish we could have stayed longer!

Home Away from Home

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Moana at the end of April and had an amazing time, and could not have ended up at a better place to stay in Nosara. Staying at the Moana feels more like a bead an breakfast, instead of a hotel, due to the amazing hospitality of the owners. They have an amazing energy, and truly care for their guests. You really feel welcomed into their home. The property is beautiful and fresh. Our room was large, private, and comfortable with excellent AC. Breakfast is included, and is everything you could want. This was a very nice treat after a morning surf. Location could not have been better, as it is right on the beach. We went to Nosara for yoga and surfing. While I am an avid surfer I was amazed on how great this place is for anyone who is learning to surf. They have brand new boards in every size and an on staff surfing instructor. If you are coming to Nosara to learn to surf, there is no need to pay to stay somewhere and then pay for surf lessons somewhere else when you can stay at the Moana and practically have your own private surf lessons and boards. They also provide yoga for their guests in a beautiful upstairs open yoga room. They even are set up for aerial yoga which was a fun experience. I don think you could find a better place to stay in Nosara than the Moana.
