The grounds were inspiring and beautifully kept. They have a greenhouse on site from which much of their food comes from. The meals were amazingly delicious and healthful, tons of fruits and vegetables. One of my concerns with traveling is not keeping up my healthful diet, but at Costa Rica Yoga Spa I ate better than I even do at home. The rooms were perfect, and exceptionally clean. They had wood windows, doors, and ceilings, shiny colored concrete floors, spacious bathrooms, and tasteful artwork. I loved the art in my room. It was a colored wood grain piece made by an artist from Czechoslovakia. The staff and owners, who are family, are exceptional loving, kindhearted, and environmentally conscious. They went above and beyond caring for our wellbeing and comfort. I would definitely return to Costa Rica Yoga Spa. It is the perfect place in Cost Rica to host a retreat, or to stay for a vacation.

I took my family on a holiday this past Christmas 2016 to Costa Rica. We had many choices when it came to locations and accommodations in Costa Rica. However, I wanted to find the pearl in the oyster, and was so glad I chose the Costa Rica Yoga Spa in Nosara. I was seeking a non-corporate location, that offered yoga, surfing, excursions, relaxed setting, ground transportation and personalized service. I did my homework and Costa Rica Yoga Spa met all my criteria and more. I am in sales and expect a lot in terms of customer service, and I was not let down by the level of A+ service we received on our stay. The friendly staff made sure we were never in need of anything and went out of their way, even on Christmas day to deliver on their promise of superior customer service. The rooms were spotless and bug free, the food was the best I ever had at any resort, and the entire stay was fantastic. The only issue I had was that the week went by too fast. I highly recommend staying at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa and look forward to my next trip to Costa Rica.

Room Tip: We liked the second floor suites.

Costa Rica Yoga Spa truly embodies the magic of Costa Rica. The owners and staff are some of the most welcoming and personable people I've ever met, eagerly answering any questions I had about the food served and the land of Costa Rica itself. All of the staff became friends of mine whom I was sad to leave by the end of my stay. The food provided was some of the most delicious, nutritional and filling food I've ever had-- part of what made it so delicious was the love and extreme care put into making it! I felt well cared for by the staff for the entire duration of my stay. Moving onto the surroundings.... The breath-taking views from the rancho and from the dining area are memories I will hold dear forever. This secluded area in which Costa Rica Yoga Spa resides is perfect for mental clarity and peace of mind. This place is perfect for a retreat, and I would recommend CRYS to anybody looking to stay in Nosara.

We think our place is pretty magical, too, Kacey! We are glad you found our food to be so outstanding. It starts with our beautiful gardens and talented and knowledgeable gardener who produces our super healthy and organic food. Our chefs eagerly await the days bounty to begin creating our delicious meals and they are prepared with such passion and love that carries into the food that our guests have. Thank you for mentioning what a great job our kitchen staff and hosts did to make your stay the best it could be. We all appreciate your kind words and are so happy your stay was so great. We look forward to having you back.

Everything about this place is magical - the land is enchanted. The view was breathtaking. The rooms were extremely well taken care of and clean. The staff did everything with love & care. The food was incredible - mostly made from their garden. I don't have a single bad thing to say about this place.

The staff at CRYS feel like family. Having just spent two weeks at this magical space for a leadership training, I couldn't have asked for more caring, loving, and generous hosts. From the breathtaking views of the coastline to the spectacular meals made from local organic ingredients, the love that is put into every detail is truly felt. Whether you are planning a retreat or some much needed R&R, Costa Rica Yoga Spa is not to be missed. Thank you to everyone who made these last few weeks so beautiful.
