We chose to stay at Horizon for a whole 2 weeks based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. Even though the reviews were rave, our expectations still managed to get exceeded by far. The stay at Horizon is more than just having comfortable and beautiful accommodation- the owners take genuine interest in your well-being, be it healthy lifestyle, yoga or surfing tips or even life lessons. By the end of the 2 weeks we felt like long time friends. We have never eaten as fresh, healthy and tasty food on any vacation or even at home. We ate breakfast and lunch here every day and if they offered dinner I am sure we would have looked nowhere else. However they are right next to the Brisas del Mar restaurant which has excellent food as well (for dinner). The yoga is a unique experience with a fantastic view of the ocean and we made much progress from the excellent tuition. Yoav taught us to do inversions including the headstand in a private session which was a highlight of our trip. He has a special way of teaching which warms you up properly and gradually prepares you and gives you confidence to flow into the more difficult poses. The other 2 teachers were fantastic as well.
We were definitely heart sore to leave and can not wait to go back. We've never had this much value for money and needless to say we very highly recommend this hotel.
Thank you so much Yoav and Gali!
