Our cabina, #3 was very small but had all we needed including a small kitchenette. The view from our private balcony was among the best in town. We were there at the end of the Costa Rican exodus to the beach so being off the main road was a big plus. We had one breakfast at Horizon and it was... More

From the moment we checked in to check out, everything was well thought of in advance with so much attention to detail! We enjoyed our private pool between our two villas immensely, the AMAZING breakfasts and smoothies!!! (I am seriously... More

Hotel staff were extremely friendly and so helpful in helping us plan dinners, activities, cab rides etc. We arrived late Thursday night and they were able to have us all set for surf lessons early the next morning. Their recommendations were perfect, and they made the trip extremely enjoyable and stress-free. The food on-site is wonderful and fresh. The daily... More

We just returned from Horizon's, and I felt compelled to create a TripAdvisor account so that I could review this wonderful place! Beautiful people running the hotel, wonderful yoga classes, warm and extremely helpful staff, and comfortable rooms. We stayed in the two bedroom sea-view room and spent significant time on the balcony overlooking the beautiful landscape of Santa Teresa.... More

Gali and family are the best hosts! Horizon is the perfect antidote to the quotidian, with excellent yoga classes, a multitude of wonderful relaxation spots, incredibly delicious food at the vegetarian teahouse, and fastidiuous attention to detail as other reviewers have noted. The staff can expertly help with absolutely anything you need arranged for your stay in the Nicoya Peninsula.... More

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
