Jill and Bob are excellent hosts at Ama Tierra. We'd been to Costa Rica before and stayed on a beach. The reason we chose Ama Tierra this time was for the cooler climate and the yoga. The climate was great and the yoga was a perfect start to our mornings. Ama Tierra is situated on a lush hillside with spectacular... More

Imagine doing yoga on a beautiful clear morning, surrounded by mango trees as toucans and other colorful birds fly by. Our stay in Costa Rica was amazing and Ama Tierra contributed much to the magic. Situated in a less touristed area of Costa Rica, the views of the mountains are magnificent, there are trails to walk on to view wildlife,... More

I just wanted to mention that Amatierra is quite a lovely spot with tons of potential although it is not the YOGA/WELLNESS retreat that I expected . Hopefully, once the yoga studio and staffing is complete, it will live up to it's name at 100 percent.

My girlfriend and I booked a room for a night and got there just in time for a brief evening yoga class in the not-yet-done yoga studio. The class was great and the sunset view of the mountains view was absolutely spectacular; when that studio is done it will probably have one of the best locations in the country. Jill... More

My two friends & I were looking for a hotel in the central valley/central pacific area for a week long stay. I stumbled over Ama Tierra on accident. We spent a week there & had a great time. I don't think we fit the normal profile of most of the guests, but we really enjoyed ourselves. The staff were great!... More

Amatierra Hotel was just what I needed to relax and renew for the new year. The food is terrific, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and you have the choice of doing everything or nothing at all. I felt very well taken care of and I also felt that the owners, Jill and Bob, really cared about the quality of... More

I can't say enough positive things about our experience at AmaTierra. I have travelled extensively, and have never felt more welcome at a hotel than I did at AmaTierra. I felt more like I was visiting friends than a hotel guest. Bob, Jill and Dan are fabulous and entertaining. Staying at AmaTierra makes me want to return to Costa Rica,... More

This February I spent a great week at Ama Tierra with a group 15 ladies. We took the 7 night Yoga & Wellness Package, which really is a great value. Morning Yoga was fantastic, at the pool side with lovely views of the area. The Yoga center, soon to be completed, is going to be spectacular, offering views of the... More

I spent 5 days at AmaTierra and had a lovely experience. My friend and I did the 3 day Wellness package and then filled an additional 2 days with excursions. We were more than pleased with AmaTierra - a peaceful property offering a healthy and nurturing experience. This is the place to come to if you're looking to practice yoga... More
