I had a massage with Rosa given to me as a Mother's Day gift last year. I didn't write a review at that time as I thought it pointless but, on reading the defenses of critiques posted, have reconsidered. Yes, it is a nice view. Period. No wonder they keep changing owners, it is a very pretentious place which misrepresents...

We would like all of our guests to have an ideal experience during their visit to our hotel and spa. We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied.

Everything at TOSA - the dome structures, the kind-hearted staff, the nourishing food - created a wonderful sense of being in harmony with the rhythm of nature. The Mountain Dome offered the perfect opportunity to tap into this rhythm with morning meditation on the terrace, afternoons in the hammock and evenings spent star gazing. I also loved the walks to/from...

I delighted in each day spent at Tosa. The lake is beautiful to gaze across from the resort stairway lookouts in the morning and evening light. The daytime kayak glides on the frequently still water of this serene lake surrounded by high hills and tall volcanoes were my solo meditations of the day. The walk up the mountain trail to...

We really enjoyed our stay at Tosa la Laguna. When you start to arrive to Tosa just seeing the geodesic dome architecture with all the colors it's a sight to see. From the peaceful zin boat ride to being greeted by staff with drinks and great conversation. My first impression was surpassed with the joy I got to stay at...

On the other hand, we realize that certain guests arrive with expectations that are beyond what we can meet.

Tosa bills itself as a top resort but it is anything but. First of all the accommodations are eclectic to say the least. First of all there are only two rooms without numerous, rocky, narrow steps. One is a mini-room with outside bath and the other is a huge room over the water--damp and noisy with the waves. The Mayan...

The hotel is really unique-looking, and built basically up the side of a cliff. This makes for great views, and also lots of steps to climb to your room in the dark! Tosa doesn't really have space for a group of 12, so most of our group was sharing 2-3 to a room. Tosa is under new owners, and they...
