First Yoga Retreat - can't imagine a better experience anywhere else. MOST IMPORTANT - the staff at Anamaya are OUTSTANDING! - anything you want, anything you need (including a customized gift certificate for my wife!), they will make sure they do everything possible to help! The food is awesome - leaning vegetarian but plenty of chicken and fish (I did... More

I have been to Costa Rica several (10+) times, and I have visited nearly the entire country. This trip to Anamaya was by far the best. The hotel is absolutely stunning yet has a nice welcoming homey feel to it. I went to Anamaya on my own on a week long retreat and by the end of it, I felt... More

This was my first time going to a Yoga retreat. This was my first time traveling to Latin america. This was my first time going on vacation solo. I really didnt know what to expect. At the end of the trip, I could not have asked for a more perfect vacation. There were many other solo travelers in the same... More

Great experience overall! Had fun and the location is amazing. I recommend staying in Montezuma for 2-3 days for exploring around before the week in Anamaya. This way you can really relax without wanting to see everything that is in town since you saw it already. There is a lot to do on site and activities, so it can get... More

Best time of my life! Jackie Chiodo is a goddess of yoga and life, best decision I ever made. Her classes will take you to places you've never imagined... The food is delicious and all organic, also mostly vegetarian. Staff are absolutely wonderful and will help with any questions at all. Pure Vida! Do it!

I would like to preface the review by saying that I would rate it a five star except that I wanted people to be aware of a couple of things before they book. So they have a construction going on during the day right now that comes along with noises like chain saw, sledge hammer, drills and hammers! People who... More

A place to relax and enjoy the view. Excellent meals prepared with fresh ingredients. The infinity pool is fantastic. It is within walking distance of Montezuma. Yoga is first and formost at this retreat.

This place is magical. I booked it last minute by myself with the intention of learning to surf, doing some yoga, and exploring Costa Rica. I was blown away. Anamaya itself is remarkably beautiful, it's impossible not to feel grateful for every day you are able to enjoy there. The staff is absolutely amazing, you will feel more like you're... More

I had an incredibly restful and rejuvenating week at Anamaya. I came for a quiet time away, to de-stress and disconnect and it was GREAT for that! Some of the folks were more active and signed up for surfing/hiking, which I did not do. The daily yoga and ample chilling by the pool or in the gorgeous main house was... More
