    Oasis in shipping containers

    This was a very cool location with rooms inside shipping containers. The rooms were really nice. Keep in mind that the road in has a lot of pot holes, although this is common in Costa Rica. The breakfast was good as well with 4 different options to choose from. Also, just a short drive away from the beaches and restaurants, but if you do not have a car keep in mind that this is up a hill. We would stay here again.

    Cool Container Eco-Retreat

    Up a hill outside Nosara, CR Made it to this super cool ecolodge just before sunset. Located at the top of a hill, nestled among the trees and garden, are 4 shipping containers converted into 8 hotel rooms with all the amenities I could want. The entire place is very zen, the family owners are charming and I cant wait to stay again.

    The proprietor of the hotel is a delightful woman who is very helpful. We love her friendly cat and dog! The room is small, but very comfortable and the beach is a ten minute walk. Our breakfast was excellent. We wish we could have stayed longer!

    Absolutely delightful

    This hotel is very comfortable and the owners are amazing. I highly suggest this location. Rooms, bed and bathroom were very clean and well put together with quality and comfort. The pool was clean and beautiful. The breakfast was the best as well. A+++ for this location and family run business.

    Excellent, helpful staff who speak English, Spanish and Italian. It takes 15-20 minutes to walk to the beach (Playa Guiones) and they also have bikes to rent. The small pool is great and includes occasional visits by a family of howler monkeys. Good breakfasts and clean, nice rooms.

    This property is so unique - how often do you get to stay in a container and feel completely pampered?
