Overview

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.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
