Francesca has created an oasis of tranquility, supported by a team of lovely people. I cannot fault a thing, from yoga every morning in a wonderful setting, healing massages from the amazing Johanna and Thai massage with Angela, to the restaurant 'La Hoja Verde' serving delicious locally sourced organic daily specials,run by lovely Colette and Pedro the chef. There is... More

We enjoyed a lengthy stay before Christmas, 2014. Francesca has turned this resort into a place to enjoy. She has very attentive and courteous staff who are always willing to assist visitors. The property is clean, comfortable, tidy and well maintained and the food from Pedro the chef is certainly an attraction. Francesca is a very charming and friendly host.... More

My friend and I got a couple massage at Indigo hotel. Johanna was my therapist, and she did an AMAZING job. She knew exactly where to press harder, and where to be more gentle. She treated me with such kindness and attention - I haven't had such a nice massage therapist for a long time.

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
