I had a fantastic time staying at El Sabanero Eco Lodge. I did a yoga teacher training with about 20 people, and I stayed for one month. You can also stay here without a group, and enjoy the luxurious facilities, explore the beautiful area, and get to know the lovely staff on your own. The owners are so sweet and... More

My wife and I went there in order to go to the beach!, the food is awesome, the room was really nice. The location is great, near of the best beaches of Guanacaste and really quiet. The staff is really nice and very helpful.

So, I've been to El Sabanero multiple times and every time has been a little different. All of my stays have been great and affordable. This most recent visit, I had a big surprise as a member of the staff, Donald, had returned after being gone for a while. Donald is part of the heart and soul of El Sabanero.... More

The setting is very chill and relaxed, which was what we were looking for. Since both my wife and I travel the world as part of our business, usually staying at top... More

I stayed for a month for a 200 hour yoga teacher training, and it was an amazing time. The entire staff was amazing, the owner Kurt welcomed us like family, and it was a perfect venue for yoga and restoration. There were howler monkeys, iguanas, and other wildlife that visited, a beautiful pool and deck area for reading and relaxing,... More

We came here for a 200 hour yoga teacher training and spent the last month here. The rainy season was just finishing, and we got to experience the first winds of summer. The coconut and palm trees blowing in the wind around the gorgeous curved pool, with the view of mountains across the horizon was our daily sight. The iguanas... More

Came here for a 6day yoga retreat. The cabins are on the basic side but do have AC and warm showers. No TVs which is what I needed to disconnect, they do have wifi though. Beautiful pool overlooking the mountains. Post-card worthy views from everywhere on the property! The chef Donald was amazing! We were all waiting for the next... More

El Sabanero is surrounded by nature. Harold is fantastic and very accommodating and the staffs too. The place is so peaceful and relaxing. I would recommend 100% to stay on this place. There are no enough words can describe El Sabanero and Harold. We will definitely be back.
