From the beautiful surroundings to the incredible hospitality received from the owners and all the staff, we were filled with the feeling of being home away from home. The hotel is located in Santa Theresa within walking distance of many delicious restaurants and in less than 5 minutes you can be walking on the beach. If you rent a car,... More

We have stayed at the Horizon 2 different times. The hotel is beautiful, super clean, great food, great location, everything perfect but what is really a differential is the service and warmth of the owners Ioav and Gali. They built the place and every inch of it has been thought to offer comfort and beauty. You have everything you need... More

Is it for the natural beauty that you care for so lovingly and sustainably? The tender care for the plants? The staff that is so pleasant? Not only is everything impeccably clean but the towels are sculpted into shapes for your delight. One day I put my hearing aids in a napkin (dumb) while I went for a swim in... More

We had an amazing stay at the Horizon. Great family fun, or a phenomenal romantic getaway. The accommodations are very clean and private, but very functional, including a kitchen, coffee maker and all of the right stuff! Walking distance to the beach and great restaurants, and in close proximity to zip-lining, great hiking, boat tours, etc, you will be pleased... More

We spent three nights here, and couldn't have asked for more! The room was amazing with a beautiful view of the sea. We took a Pilates and Yoga class in their studio that overlooked the ocean. Beautiful and relaxing place to stay- would definitely come back!

We read these reviews when booking our vacation and so had high expectations. Horizon exceeded them. The place is paradise. Everything is designed so beautifully. The food is incredible. The views are surreal. We want to come back to Costa Rica just for this place.

My husband and I stayed at Horizon in November for two nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the views were beautiful, and the food -- the food! -- we loved it while we were there and didn't even fully appreciate how good it was until we moved on to the next hotel...

My husband and I had an amazing 5 night stay at Horizon and from the moment we arrived we felt completely welcomed and comfortable. We got into Mal Pais later then expected and were greeted by a very friendly security guard who brought us to reception. Gali came to meet us and told us our room was ready and not... More

We came back to a snowstorm, but it didnt matter--we felt so healthy, refreshed, and well cared for after our week at Horizon. Gail and Yoav run a tight ship, with a fabulous service-ful staff, top-notch yoga classes, high quality organic food, and attention to detail. We are very picky, but they won our hearts over and we will definitely... More
