An in depth review of Samasati. We paid $147 a night with no package. My boyfriend and I stayed for 5 nights. The rooms: we were not in a bungalow, but rather, in rooms connected to one another with a shared bathrooms. I figured this would be much like the many hostels I have stayed in; however, the floors squeak... More

We travelled from the snowy lands of central Alberta Canada to enjoy a wonderful rainforest experience at Samasati. We were not disappointed. The staff were tremendously friendly and accommodating. They responded to any of our requests with speed and good humour. We truly enjoyed the community atmosphere they promoted at meal time. Speaking of which, the meals were fabulous. It... More

Samasati is under new ownership with a stunning focus on a most welcoming, nurturing, supportive environment. I have never felt so looked after by a wonderful collection of staff, both old and new, and never felt so at home and at peace with myself as at this lovely place in its fabulous rain forest setting. Highlights included the gorgeous way... More

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
