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

My wife and I visited the Horizon last February and loved it. We went back to CR last week and visited the Tamarindo area. I really enjoyed Horizon last year and wrote a review, but now with some additional experience, I can truly appreciate Horizon's the perfect mix of well appointed clean room, great food, convenience to the beach, friendly...

The positive reviews that we read before coming to Horizon Hotel still did not prepare us for how amazing our week long stay was. The attention to details in the service and accomodations was over the top. This place has the comfort of a five star hotel without any of the pretention. We rented the whole hotel to lead a...

There is one place on earth where we are coming back every year since nearly a decade. It is certainly due to the Horizon Hotel with his loving owners Gali and Yoav with their whole crew. We start to come her as a couple and now we are back with our little daughter who loves this place even more. Back... More

We spent 6 nights here at a Yoga Retreat. It was wonderful. We arrived after a frightening drive where the GPS led us through 4 rivers. Owners Gali and Yoav immediately went to work to calm and refresh us. The Hotel is beautiful. Rooms are very comfortable. We were given a double room which gave us a lot of extra... More

Costa Rica was a dream trip, and the icing on the cake was Horizon. We marveled at how attentive Joav and Gali were, how efficient and expert their staff were... we were the most relaxed we'd been in a long, long time. It's a special place in a special place and we felt lucky to be there. You can get... More
