Need I go on? Our stay at Samasati was the ultimate health and well-being experience. We were greeted by the friendliest, happiest receptionist I've ever had the pleasure to speak with and were immersed in the jungle with glorious views over the Caribbean sea and Puerto Viejo town. The cabin was wonderful and we were very fortunate to have a... More

We have stayed twice at Samasati and both times were very wonderful. Silvia and the staff were awesome hosts. Totally enjoyed the place and will be back! The view was wonderful and the food was well prepared. Will always remember and look forward to my morning coffee at sunrise looking out at the Caribbean.

The staff of Samasati are super friendly and extremely accommodating! The meals prepared were delicious and the views are amazing! My trip to Samasati was through Gondwana Ecotours and I left Costa Rica with a life-changing experience. Thank you to everyone included, I can't wait to be back! The property of Samasati is absolutely beautiful with nature everywhere around you.... More

After I returned from Samasati Nature Retreat, everyone I've told about the trip wants to go, or wishes they could go. I went there for a seven day yoga retreat (ended up staying ten days). There was no internet, no television, no phone, yoga twice a day, vegetarian food grown on property, and hiking trails through the rainforest that I... More

Have stayed at Samasati twice and my whole family loved it. Will definitely be back. It feels like our home away from home. You can't get any closer to the rainforest than this. Be aware this is a nature retreat, NOT a resort. Come here if you want to unplug, enjoy the surroundings, relax, and explore the rainforest, not if... More

....magical, breathtaking, a vibrant kaleidoscope of fauna and flora! The tiny neon orange frogs were my favorite little critters, the howler monkeys were everywhere but you couldn’t see them, they would wake you every morning at 6am with a chorus of moans, sometimes the sounds came from the south, sometimes from the north. The extraordinary species of orchids were stunning,... More

Rustic luxury may sound like an oxymoron, but the moment you step into this space, you will understand fully. Surrounded by gorgeous, lush jungle filled with beautiful animals in their native habitat, this house has an amazing ocean view to boot. Sitting high atop a tree directly off the expansive deck was our welcoming committee – a sloth – which... More

I am a yoga teacher and the first time stayed i 2006 with a large group of students. We had a blast and were very well taken care of. I have returned 4 more times, 3 with groups and once with just my husband and I. It feels like home, except for they have way better food, view, lodgings and... More

Where do we start !!! It was a unforgettable vacation. We rented a 4x4 vehicle in San Jose.. It was necessary to have a 4x4 to get in and out of this resort although no vehicle is necessary as they have a free daily shuttle to the town The yoga classes were incredible. Classes were at 6.30 a.m. and 5:00... More
