We were supposed to be at the hotel for 2 days but we ended up being 4 days. The current owner Francesca is the perfect host. The tastiest food I have ever tried by her chef Pedro. They offer also surf lessons, being really worth it. Ramon was our instructor and we learnt with him in 2 days more than... More

We had a wonderful stay at Indigo Yoga Resort (without doing Yoga). Francesca, the owner, is a very friendly, charming and supportive host and she has renovated the whole place with great taste. The interior design of the rooms is very appealing. Also the garden and the pool area are very nice, clean and carefully maintained. We ended at Indigo... More

A total scam !!!! Obviously this place has been sold in the last two years....to a rude and arrogant man who has no business running a "resort?" more like a crappy motel. Stay away!! The rooms were okay, however we encountered a "groundskeeper" who was obviously drunk and verbally inappropriate. We were disgusted by the dirty grounds and un-maintained pool.... More

We had a string of bad luck in Tamarindo that made us leave our stay faster than expected. To which we checked out beija flor! It was a fun experience as the beach was right across the street (albeit not swimmable) and the staff was really friendly. I have to admit the wildlife was awesome here! I had a blast!... More

this hotel is very expensive for the facilities it has and what you get. We payed 130$ per night for a room and hotel that are worth no more than 80$. We were so sorry we ordered 3 nights in advance and could not cancel them. It was a big waste of our money. We were in Costa Rica for... More

TAs per the recent reviews this place needs a change...It is nothing like what the Beija Flor Resort website describes. It is far from being a resort, it does not offer any services such as yoga, beauty etc. If you do not have a car this place is too far to walk in the heat and dust. The beach across... More

When we prepared our stay in Mal Pais we followed the reviews on TA and Lonely Planet. The best recommended place would be Beija Flor, so we booked it early in April, for six nights, not to risk they would be fully booked in December. We checked absolutely everything on this place of "paradise and luxury", yoga and massage and... More

We were so excited by the write up in lonely planet about this place that we pre-paid the full amount of our stay in advance. It was the biggest disappointment of our holidays in wonderful Costa Rica. The place needs a new manager urgently. There is not enough to eat at breakfast, they only start at 8am, an hour after...

My husband and I traveled to Mal Pais for our honeymoon in Nov-Dec 2012. We booked a house high up in the mountains off of vrbo. The place we booked was a disaster; the house was not cared for, the pool was dirty, there were scorpions in our shower,ect. We took all we could and then drove down the hill... More

This is just the beginning so I'll update my review as this nightmare progresses. My wife and I have been on a long journey through Costa Rica and were really looking forward to finishing our trip at a peaceful resort in Mal Pais. Long story short, so far this place overcharges and lies about the amenities. We were both looking... More
