Our third time to Blue Spirit on yoga retreats. A delightful place to settle into yourself, energy and peace, gives time not to think and just be. Stayed in the huts at the bottom of the slope a few times to get that extra back to nature feeling, and showering outside :)

Blue Spirit uniquely combines a beautiful natural setting, amazing healthy food with gluten free options at every meal, yoga rooms that are set within the beautiful landscape, breathtaking views of the ocean and a staff is friendly and knowledgable. Not to mention the massage therapists who are truly... More

I led a retreat to Blue Spirit in January 2015. The grounds were luscious, the food was delicious, and the staff were super friendly and attentive. Blue Spirit has clearly discovered what it takes to provide the ideal setting for a retreat. We will be back next year.

Went for a yoga retreat and had a wonderful time. But be sure to read the other reviews and understand the practicalities of staying at a remote "eco" resort. Dirt road, soap & TP restrictions, stairs and true medical help is 1.5 hr away in Nicoya are all facts to know so you are not disappointed. And also there are... More

Blue Spirit is truly a sanctuary. The staff is warm and friendly; the location is beautiful; the food is exceptional; the attention to environmental concerns is unparalleled. Go! (Note - (1) leave your usual shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and other soaps at home; the eco-conscious setup only allows for biodegradable products. (2) the rooms are sparsely decorated and quite warm;... More

I found a new home at Blue Spirit. Living in New York with all the hustle and busle,noise and pollution, I look forward to a place of peace and tranquility. The place that fulfilled all of my needs was Blue Spirit. For the last 3 years, I looked forward to spend my winter months at Blue Spirit in Costa Rica.... More

We finally arrived at Blue Spirit after 2 days of travel. They arranged for our transport from the airport and we arrived mid afternoon very tired and hungry. Check in was rapid and the staff efficient in getting us situated into our room. Our first disappointment was discovering that there were no food options for guests at this hour of... More

I had the absolute pleasure of attending a yoga retreat at Blue Spirit for one week. My accommodations were rustic but delightful. I chose the tent & slept among the sounds, sights, scents- sensual riches of nature. The food was the freshest, healthiest & varying that kept the palate craving more. The options of activities, lounging, meditation, beaching &/or socializing... More

A fantastic retreat hotel offering peace, beautiful minds and souls in relaxing surroundings. We had the privilege of attending a one week tantric meditation retreat with Deva, Miten, Manoose and Rafia. And the Blue Spirit was the perfect place for it, offering low key elegance, healthy wonderful food and a great location away from the world. The huge yoga/meditation room... More
