I flew from Orange County CA to San Jose Costa Rica for a yoga relaxation week for my aching body. Yes, the yoga was much better than expected as were the meals. But the openness and helpfulness of Jill and Bob was over the top on my expectation chart. Bob is warm, friendly and open and made me feel welcome from the first minute. Jill is a true healer who excels in giving care to her guests. The over-the-top for me was that as my back was feeling better, nature exploded in thunder storms and spectacular, refreshing rain and people coalesced into a sharing meal-time group, all of us seeking and finding something special in this wonderful place. I would definitely return. Ama Tierra is in and about nature at its best.

Hotel's Favorite
My 3 week stay at Amatierra was amazing. Bob and Jill are lovely owners and hosts. They treat all of the guests like family. Jill is not only a yoga instructor, she is also a Chinese herbalist and a gifted healer. My time at Amatierra was magnificent. The genuine smiles, the careful consideration for every guest and the good organic food. Not only did I feel safe, I felt at home. Yes, I traveled to Amatierra solo, but I never felt alone. The warmth of Bob and Jill and the other guests was like medicine to my soul. With all that is going on in the world, Amatierra provided me with a much needed reprieve. I will return sooner rather than later and hopefully bring a few friends!

This past March 2021, I went to AmaTierra looking for a getaway yoga retreat and what I found was a 5 day detox program that exited my expectation so much that I decided to stay for 7 days. The smoothie’s teas and organic meals were very tasting and filling. I lost a total of 7 pound and most importantly I felt refreshed and energized. Jill is not only a great host, but she is also a very caring person that will help you accomplish your healing goals and make sure you understand what the detox program and the yoga classes do for your spirit, mental wellbeing, and physical condition. What else can you ask for right? Jill’s husband Bob assures that your stay in AmaTierra is an amazing experience, not only by organizing all your field trips to Costa Rica natural attractions, but also by looking into every detail of your trip needs. I highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone that is looking to connect with nature, eat delicious organic dishes and if you are looking to take care of the most precious thing we have, our Health!

We love Amatierra! The food was absolutely amazing and all organic with much sourced including fresh eggs from Jill and Bob's own land! We loved the family vibe and the amazing Full Moon Singing Bowls ritual. Jill is an experienced and intuitive herbalist and yoga instructor making all experience levels feel comfortable. My husband enjoyed his first yoga lesson ever! Well equipped in an amazing landscape unique to Costa Rica! We will go again!

I traveled a lot but never leave review since after a trip I will start to research the next one. However, I am writing my first review because Ama Tierra deserves a perfect score. It exceeds way over my expectation. I have normal BMI but always looking forward to lose 5 more pounds. It magically happened in a week of detox and I enjoyed every moment of it. The drinks and foods were tasty, and very fresh and healthy. I did not feel hunger in between meals and snacks. There are many activities provided. I was wrong as my original concern is getting bored. The yoga class is out of the world. The meditation before dinner was a magnificent experience to me. On the third day, I was surprised by the calmness of my mind. I become more patient when come back to the real world. And I know where to go if I ever need to empty my mind and lose some weight again.
