I initially chose the Costa Rica Yoga Spa because I was looking for a place that facilitated Iboga retreats. I have never felt so cared for by strangers. Of course the staff did not treat me like a stranger, I felt like I was part of the family. It's a smaller facility so you get to know people (staff and... More

My girlfriend and I were told by a good friend of the Costa Rica Yoga Spa and his experience with such gusto, we had to see it for ourselves. The setting is dream like and ideal for true meditation and superb body work. After the required medical examinations (which makes this the safest place in the world to experience this... More

Words can't express the gratitude I have for CRYS. Every single person on staff here is highly focused on creating a great experience for guests. They genuinely supported me and other guests in our healing journeys. It would not have been the same without them. I definitely recommend CRYS for a vacation or for any healing retreats you might wish... More

Have you ever seen ANY other hotel/resort with all 5 stars, with well over 200 reviews? Everyone has given CRYS 5 stars for a reason. This place is heaven!!

If you're looking for a beautiful setting, complete with stunning vistas, delicious fresh food, and loving hospitality, search no further. I have traveled A LOT, and it is difficult to find a place that can only be described as magical. It is for that reason I write this review half heartedly. A big part of me wants to keep this...

Yeah wow. The hospitality and ambiance of the space is amazing. Fantastic veggie gourmet, an amazing view, and an incredibly friendly crew. There are options every day to get a ride to one of many nearby beaches, perhaps a night on the 'town', or just stay and see what activity is planned for the night. Movies, dance, yoga, or conversation... More
