I stayed at this resort while on a group tour of about 15 people and it was a very relaxing experience. It's very different to anything in the states, and I'm not sure I would recommend it to someone who has exceptionally high standards and prefers traditional hotel-style accommodation. It's fairly off the grid but still close to local shops/restaurants. Our yoga instructor was great, didn't make anyone feel self-conscious or embarrassed. The layout and architecture of the resort is very unique, with the main yoga area on an outdoor platform. Our room was clean- sheets were great quality and we had a small kitchenette. I've seen other reviews mention the dogs that live there with the owners, so if that bothers you I wouldn't recommend. They were small and didn't bark or bother us when we were there, but they do roam freely around the premises. Overall, I would say if you really love yoga and want to be away from a lot of tourists, this would be a perfect spot.

We stayed 2 nights in a villa that slept our family of 5. The villa was perfect. It had a very small kitchen with a full size fridge and all the cooking utensils we needed. The outdoor bathroom was cool too! We kept the door closed however so that the mosquitos would not get in our room. The grounds were beautiful as was the yoga area. The included breakfast was the best we had in all of Costa Rica. Homemade gallo pinto, eggs to order, fresh juice, pancakes and toast. Wonderful!!! Wish we would have stayed longer but we plan on returning one day!

The staff are lovely & the pool area was my favourite feature. I originally choose this hotel because it advertised aerial yoga, but when I arrived, there was none. My room was basic, while some of the others looked quite nice. I wasn’t aware that Mal Pais isn’t a swimming beach. The waves are too strong & consist of gravel rather than sand. It is also very remote. A car or a quad are a mist as there are no restaurants, or grocery stores. One must go to Santa Teresa.

After a full on Central American tour I was looking forward to resting and catching up on some sleep. Firstly the positives. I was particularly impressed with Jamie who worked on reception and front of house. Her professional and pleasant personality were really lovely. The kitchen staff were extremely competent and the ceviche was excellent. I can't recommend it enough. The other staff were pleasant and friendly. The pool area is pretty and lovely to spend time in. The yoga instructor, Gaby, was world class. The rooms were nice but sadly the walls/doors are paper thin and you can hear people talking, shouting etc on the other side. Worse was the barking dogs that live on the property. After I raised the dog barking issue for the second time, I was moved for one night to a room on the other side of the complex. However, I had to go back the next night to the noise of the dogs. It was extremely disappointing as undisturbed sleep at night was not possible. The dogs, who seem to be quite old, would bark at regular intervals and the barking sessions would often last for more than forty minutes. This was usually at 3am and then 5am. Management need to deal with this issue. If you are looking for a peaceful resort I would urge you to reconsider Indigo.

The resort has lovely grounds that meander through the jungle, and and fair sized pool that is perfect for families with kids, 1 part is a kiddie pool, the rest is at least 4 1/2' deep. Very relaxing place to stay. The bungalows have two bedrooms and a nice sized kitchen, as well as bathrooms that are partly outside (really fun) and AC in the main room. There is no TV, microwave or coffee maker, and the wifi is pretty good. Forget about getting a verizon signal there. The resort itself is located far enough from the main drag that you have to have a car. You can walk to town, but the incredibly dusty road (during the dry season) means walking would be miserable. Its a 8 minute walk to the beach, which is really rocky and while pretty not for playing on. For a stunning beach take the 20 minute car ride all the way to end of the road at Playa Hermosa for the endless miles of perfect beach that you came here for. Miguel the manager will get you set up with anything fun you want to do, but be prepared to pay in cash, US dollars. There is one yoga class a day for $12 per class, and my wife really enjoyed both the instructor and the setting.There is a great breakfast included. it didn't change much in the 5 days we were there, but it was perfect for us and included coffee. Other food seemed really expensive for portion size. Which is also what you get in Costa Rica these days, 1/2 the fun and 4 times the cost of a decade ago. Granted, we came at the highest of the high season, but still. The area is pretty, the surfing is amazing, but your going to spend $60-80 US per night feeding a family of four with some beers for the adults, maybe $40-60 for lunch. Zip lining will run you $50 a head, same for horseback riding. For the total cost of going to Costa Rica these days you can go anywhere. For me, that means this was final trip here.
