My friend and I just spent 6 completely amazing and rejuvenating days in pranamar. The beaches and sunsets in Santa Teresa are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen ( including Mexico, Hawaii, carribean, etc).. The water is warm and the waves are awesome.. The beach is pristine with gorgeous jungle mountains as a backdrop. However, the staff and... More

Whilst the "green season" gave us weather that was stormy and wet, the dreadful service (or lack of) and bad attitude from some staff, made our 3 night stay at Pranamar memorable for all the wrong reasons. I extensively researched accommodation on the Nicoya Peninsula and wanted to make sure that what I chose was worth the 40 hour trip... More

pranamar, Manager at Pranamar Villas and Yoga Retreat, responded to this review

In the low season, very few places in this town and Costa Rica are open. As a courtesy to our guests our restuarnt staff will cook meals if the guests would like, and hence, at breakfast time we ask each guest if they would like us to prepare a meal. This gives our chef time to go buy all the... More

Having become disenchanted/disgusted by what Tamarimdo has become over the years, my wife and I finally sought out a new vacation spot in CR this year. Needed upper-tier place to stay on the beach in proximity to good restaurants, beginner-level surf, and maybe some nightlife. After reading Lonely Planet and deciding upon Mal Pais, i went to the Trip Asvisor... More

I stayed in the Kula House at Prana Mar for a yoga retreat last February and had a blissful week. I have never been so relaxed and felt so in touch with nature on a vacation before. The Kula House was perfect for the five of us and we all loved the outside showers. The restaurant served excellent, healthy food... More

I will start by saying that I have no affiliation with anyone at Pranamar. My wife and i just got back from a great week at Pranamar. We choose Costa Rica this trip as we didn't have 2 weeks to go to europe this year but wanted to do something other than go to the beach in Hawaii. Santa Teresa... More

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous pool and surroundings. GREAT rooms/villas! I absolutely loved the set up. We stayed in a two floor/two bathroom villa right next to the pool. We did yoga each morning in the shala enjoying the view and sounds of the ocean. So relaxing. Breakfast and lunch were delicious. Dinner was not the best, but wasn't... More

So, we got married in Costa Rica and then headed to Playa Santa Theresa just the two of us. We actually stayed at Flor Blanca, up the street from Pranamar.
