Harmony Hotel is a delightful, high-end establishment with a distinctly laid-back feel which lies midway along the Pacific coastline of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula. It’s set back a short distance from Playa Guiones, a highly-rated surfers paradise that stretches for over four miles. Facilities include a lovely pool and a spa which goes over and above the traditional treatment menu to provide a more holistic approach to deep relaxation and wellbeing. There’s also plenty to do if surfing’s not really your thing and the many activities on offer range from yoga to mountain biking, snorkelling, kayaking, ziplining or simply lolling around on the beach or beside the pool.

There are plenty of accommodation options to suit parties of different sizes. There are standard rooms and one-bed bungalows, as well as a two-bed suite and two large villas. All options have their own patio complete with a seating area, a hammock and a private outdoor shower. Rooms are air conditioned and have a ceiling fan, with amenities including a tea and coffee maker, a minibar and eco-friendly toiletries. The rates for all rooms include a daily maid service, the Green Living tour, one daily yoga class per guest and an a la carte breakfast every morning.

The open-air restaurant serves three meals a day, with a large amount of the food sourced from the hotel’s very own farm. There’s also a bar with a relaxed, sociable lounge area for drinks and light snacks. Tucked away from the main facilities is the Juice Bar, a hidden gem in hotel’s gardens offering a range of healthy, homemade snacks and freshly prepared drinks.

Playa Guiones has earned an excellent reputation as a top surfing beach thanks to its year-round waves. It’s just a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel to the beach where surfing lessons are available for both complete beginners and those with more experience. There are other beaches in the vicinity and plenty of alternative activities on offer ranging from mountain biking and zip lining, to snorkelling, kayaking and many more. Some of the more leisurely options include voluntary tree planting sessions, trips to a sustainable coffee farm and a tour of a nearby plant nursery.

Harmony’s on-site facilities include a swimming pool surrounded by pretty, tropical vegetation and a boutique selling all manner of sundries, along with various books, local art and souvenirs. Bikes are available for hire for no extra charge, as are surfboards, yoga mats and exercise equipment. The Healing Centre is the hotel’s spa which offers guest a more enriching and meaningful experience than a traditional spa.

The hotel is family friendly, with most of its rooms capable of accommodating those travelling with young children. Due to the property’s beachside location, parents are reminded to ensure that their children are under constant adult supervision.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
