The Pranamar Villas are stunning. I was at the Pramamar Villas as part of VajraSol Yoga Adventures retreat, and WOW, the retreat and villas make a great combination. The grounds are lush and fully of color, all while leaving the path ways clear and well lit at night. Every villa is completely screened in to protect against bugs and critters... More

My husband and I were looking for somewhere special to stay on our honeymoon and Pranamar was nothing short of perfect. The hotel is made up of a series of villas and bungalows reached by walkways lined with lush plants and trees. Owners Susan and Greg are always around and their warmth definitely translates into their hotel. All this gives... More

We moved to Pranamar after having a mix up with our original accommodations. We wish we had found Pranamar sooner! They were so helpful and made our transition easy and exciting. Our mouths dropped open when we got there. It was so beautiful and inviting. Everyone on staff was friendly and helpful, the housekeeping was impeccable, the yoga was restorative... More

I selected Pranamar based on the reviews I read here (thank you everyone!) and my expectations were met, if not exceeded. I went with a good friend and we LOVE this place! Just the right combination of rustic and chic, with a Balinese style decor, right on the water. The food was amazing and super fresh and healthy, the people/staff... More

We just finished up our second yoga retreat at Pranamar (attending one in April 2012 and now in March 2014) and continue to believe that Pranamar is a little piece of heaven. The grounds are absolutely stunning and so well cared for by Greg. On our arrival we were greeted by the friendly Larissa and felt immediately as if we... More

We finished here at the end of our honeymoon and pranamar is an amazing resort. This is really a yoga and surfing resort, which as that it what we wanted to do, it was great. The room we had was a bit disappointing, hence a 4 rather than a 5, but I would still love to go back and have... More

Pranamar Villas is a stunning, exquisite getaway that will take your breathe away. My boyfriend planned a visit to Pranamar for my Birthday - I was speechless, just taken in by the "zen" feeling and all the beauty that surrounded me. From the moment we entered through the gate, our sights were filled of beauty - the grounds are stunning... More

I came to Pranamar for a week long yoga retreat, and it was wonderful. The location is somewhat isolated, so it definitely takes time to get here, but it's well worth it. The villas are beautiful,mine was right off the pool. The beach is steps away, and the food at the restaurant is excellent. I miss it already. My only... More

Dear Yogis Thank you for your wonderful review. I am doing a tour tomorrow of each villa to find out which shower does not afford 100% privacy but you are right, probably with the dry season we lost the foliage that blocked it so i will find out! This is the first I heard of that so i promise to... More

Amazing resort in a small surfing town in Costa Rica. The weather is amazing and if you like to surf it's a gem. Pranamar is tucked away just outside of town and its a perfect place to get away. The rooms are beautiful- I picked a poolside villa and its the perfect location. The food is fresh, local and healthy... More

So far, pranamar has exceeded expectations. A beautiful location and friendly staff. However, our villa, number 6, feels like it's inside the kitchen. Cooking smells and bashing dishes. And this is on a night where only 3 tables were served for dinner! By all mean come to pranamar but avoid #6!

Dear folks Wow, sorry to hear about this. In 4 years we have never had this problem before at least no one has ever discussed it. But I sencerely apologize. Obviously, with only 3 tables, the noise was a kitchen staff having too much fun! I admit that people often tell me they love the cooking smells as they pass... More
