The yoga retreat at CRYS was nothing short of outstanding. The staff was extremely kind, helpful, and willing to do anything to make your time spent there as relaxing as possible. The meals (primarily vegetarian) were amazing and prepared with vegetables from their own organic garden. The view over part of the forest is breathtaking, especially as the sun sets... More

Costa Rica Yoga Spa is a beautiful space. Here you feel like one of the family as you sit around the table for delicious, buffet style meals that are made with local, organic ingredients. The "staff" (who honestly become your good friends after a stay) even greet you with delicious watermelon juice or fresh tea when you arrive. Towels that... More

The food was all organic and cooked in the CRYS kitchen which is under the shelter of the building with no walls enclosing it. The Yoga Studio is under a thatched roof with no walls. Tarpaulins can be dropped during heavy rainstorms. the kitchen, however, does... 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
