The Waterfall Villas is an excellent place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. They offer vegetarian, vegan and even raw food taking into consideration any personal preferences. The rooms are very nicely decorated. It was an unforgettable experience! The hotel is best suited for couples.

I took this trip expecting a yoga retreat. What I got instead was a lot of verbal instruction on the history of yoga in India and a few simple yoga stretches. Very disappointing. The food however was beyond amazing - vegan and utterly delicious. Be wary of Franco - always looking to make a buck off of you and won't... More

Namaste! Kundalini Yoga is a spiritual practice, and we have so many different Kriyas to choose from, so if I know that someone has had surgery or other issues - YES, I am very gentle to avid injury. You are not a flexible person - that does not happen in a week. There have been advanced students here, and even... More

I took this trip by myself. I was looking to go somewhere and just decompress from my busy lifestyle. The Waterfall Villas offered just that- disconnected from tv and phone it was such a relaxing and much needed vaca for me. It is one of the most beautiful places I have been on my travels. Every morning I woke up... More

My SO and I recently spent at week at Waterfall VIllas, and it was pure magic. I don't even know where to begin because everything was so amazing. There was a little mix-up about our pick up from the airport, so we were a little stressed on the way there, but as soon as we arrived at the retreat, pretty... More

Waterfall Villas was an absolutely amazing place to stay in Dominical. My husband and I, coming from the SF Bay Area, knew we wanted to stay in a tropical, jungle-y place in Costa Rica. We definitely got what we wanted! The hotel is an absolutely beautiful Balinese-style property. The rooms have bamboo beds with gorgeous canopies, the shower is an... More

I work in the hotel industry in which I appreciate good service and well designed aesthetics of a hotel stay. This place tops many and the attention to every detail is impressive. First off, your room is located rate by a waterfall where you become absorbed by all the elements (soothing sound from water + Alive jungle + fresh air).... More

I had a wonderful time at the Waterfall Villas. If you love nature and serenity you gonna love this place. I did couple of days of green juicing and felt so rejuvenated. The owners were really nice and made extra effort to book and coordinate for me all the different tours and activities I wanted to do. I really liked... More

I went to this retreat for yoga, meditation, detox, and to have some alone time to decompress. I achieved exactly that. After the first 2 days, I realized how much I needed the retreat because I was having such a hard time dealing with being alone and having me time. Fateh helped me work through my anxiety and truly identify... More

Thank you for writing about how much you enjoyed and liked your introduction to gluten-free vegan experience. I am so happy to hear even in 1 week you were able to loose the unwanted weight.

My husband and I recently spent eight wonderful days at Cascadas Farallas/Waterfall Villas. We chose this vacation to enjoy an all vegan menu as well as explore the amazing biodiversity of Costa Rica. We returned home with a renewed commitment to a healthy and eco-friendly lifestyle. The healthy vegan meals were elegant and delicious. The eco-lodge and grounds are beautiful,... More
