I was the retreat leader for the Align & Shine Retreat for Driven Professional Women through Semper Sarah® LLC. I just wanted to say that somehow CRYS just keeps getting better and better. The staff greeted our guests with cool towels and fresh juice as soon as they arrived, were friendly and supportive to both the students and us teachers,... More

It’s difficult to adequately express what an incredible experience I had at the Costa Rica Yoga Spa. Simply put, CRYS is paradise. If you are looking for a place with beautiful surroundings, breathtaking views, delicious food, clean and comfortable rooms, and an incredibly caring staff, then look no further. I spent a week there last month, partly to celebrate a... More

So amazing!!! The accommodations and amenities were awesome, beautiful decor, and incredible food! All of the staff were so hospitable and sweet. The resort is off the beaten path and well isolated so don't expect consistent wifi! It was such a treat to see wildlife so close and be able to cool off in the pool. They also take great... More

As an urban cynic, I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived, but this place and its staff completely won me over. First of all, the service was excellent. As noted by the other visitors/reviewers, it's a team comprising Costa Rican natives and expats. They are all especially warm and hospitable, really taking care to look after their guests.... More

I have travelled extensively to some of the most highly rated and publicized places of the world, but nothing can compare to the stark simplicity and pure joy that CRYS can offer. The food is amazing, the staff are all so friendly and accommodating, and the Rancho is an incredible place to practice yoga and meditate. We had the opportunity... More

I've just spent 3 nights at CRYS as a relaxing finish to a tour around Costa Rica. The atmosphere is just so warm and congenial - the many members of staff are all so helpful although it is a little confusing as to who does what, and hence how to book an activity at first - although this is quickly...

Let me start off by saying I'm not a yoga person. While CRYS is indeed a yoga spa, it is so much more. I can't really speak of the yoga and iboga retreats, but I do understand from others that they have a full roster of amazing retreats and talented, educated instructors. As for the resort itself: From surfing, to... More
