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.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
