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!! The grounds are immaculate, the staff amazing, the views incredible, and the food to die for. What more do you need? I stayed here for a week with my best yogi-in-crime.... More

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...

Wow, what can I say. This was THE best trip of my life and the Costa Rica Yoga Spa was definitely the highlight. I have stayed two weeks in Nosara for two retreats. The first one was at the CRYS and the second was at the blue spirit. From the arrival to the moment we left and even afterwards, the... More

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

This was my first trip to the land of Pura Vida and the CRYS epitomized in every way possible the stress-free, joyful way of life that the lucky people of the Nicoya peninsula so easily express. The Nicoya peninsula is one of the few global blue zones (google it)and Nosara is right in the middle of it. Everything at the... More

When you arrive you simply don't want to leave! It's magical & the staff, food, yoga & beautiful sunsets just keep adding more & more magic. If you want to feel completely happy & relaxed spend some time here! If you're travelling solo you won't feel alone, it's like one big family!

Pros: absolutely beautiful jungle setting, great food, friendly & caring staff, lovely communal living Cons: management constantly tries to sell you overpriced add ons, far from the beach (it's a hassle & expensive to get taxi), somewhat disorganized

Thank you for your review. We appreciate you mentioning our wonderful staff! We are not a beachfront property, perhaps you weren't aware of that when you booked your stay. Its unfortunate you didn't take advantage of our daily beach trips which are included in the price of every stay at our hotel. Taxis can get expensive, for sure. We offer... More
