I have been leading yoga and wellness retreats since the early 1990's. I have been in Mexico, Jamaica, the South of France, Harper's Ferry, the Netherlands, Dominica, Brazil and multiple times in Costa Rica. Amatierra is the first time I have repeated a location. The owners Bob and Jill bring a special family touch to their groups. One feels a... More

I just returned from a week long yoga retreat at Amatierra. It was a welcome sight after a long day of traveling. The owners Bob and Jill were waiting for us with cold fruit smoothies. Our stay was wonderful. The terraced cottages were clean and comfortable. Delicious coffee was available for us in our rooms. The meals were exceptional. Breakfast... More

We hosted a weeklong dance retreat at Amatierra in February 2015. It was the perfect location for 25 dancers to live and work for 7 days in paradise. The studio is amazing, and the food was perfect for all our dietary restrictions. I found all of the staff to be extremely helpful and accommodating from the moment we stepped on... More

Amatierra was to me exactly what I was looking for... A quiet retreat to allow me to get in touch with nature, and healthy meals that I did not have to think about or prepare. The property is not fancy, but clean and functional. The activities available are enough to keep one busy. Being in the mountains and somewhat isolated... More

I want to start by saying I strongly dislike writing negative reviews and rarely do it. I'm a positive person that will make the best out of any situation. However, after making many failed attempts to resolve this with Bob, I feel I have no choice. I booked a 5 night retreat in early October during the off season. After... More

amatierra, Owner at Amatierra Retreat and Wellness Center, responded to this review

In the hospitality business as in life, there are always a few people we cannot please, and we have little control over how people interpret our words. Nonetheless, we try very hard to make our guests happy, and this is why AmaTierra has earned Trip Advisors' Award of Excellence for the last 3 years and has a 99% excellent rating.... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time at Ama Tierra. The resort is situated in the beautiful Costa Rican mountains. The owners and staff are very friendly and attentive. The yoga studio is the nicest I have ever been to with unmatched scenic views of the countryside. The food is also very good and the wellness continues with massage... More

Amatierra is a beautiful yoga retreat and spa high in the mountains in San Pablo. The setting is glorious and the yoga studio is so serene that you almost feel that you are interfering with nature just by being there. The yoga classes were very good and the meditation was a new and introspective experience for me. I had a... More

I stayed here with 12 other women as part of a traveling group for a 9-day trip to Costa Rica. The property is tucked away in the mountains and is very peaceful and serene. We practiced yoga, meditated, and were welcomed with open arms by Jill and Bob. The food was delicious and every member of the staff was very... More

My mom and I decided to take a mother- daughter trip. We are both health/ nutrition conscious and were very much in need of a physical and mental detox. Well, we certainly got what we were looking for and more. Amatierra is a magical place. The grounds were beautiful. The yoga studio is open-air and has an incredible view of... More

My trip to AmaTierra started with my friend, whom booked a room. She invited me to go along with her and so I invited my sister, ending in the three of us vacationing together. The casita accommodates 2 beds, but we had two in one casita and one of us in a casita next door. AmaTierra is a resort with... More
