Our honeymoon stay was wonderful! Jill and Bob were warm and welcoming hosts, the food was delicious, and the scenery breathtaking. We also highly recommend a trip to Turubari park. It was an incredible experience that included zip lining, a personal nature tour and delicious food, and was just down the road from AmaTierra!

Stayed September 2006

My husband and I were referred to the Amatierra by the owner's brother, and we were very happy with the result! The owners, Bob and Jill, were fantastic hosts, making sure everyone was content and attended to. Both are very kind and made our stay quite memorable.

The property was beautiful. We loved the individual casitas built into the hilltop, and the main building with the dining and lounge areas and swimming pool were extremely comfortable and peaceful. The view off of the terrace is just breathtaking!

My husband and I did much exploring during the short 6-day trip we had in Costa Rica, and Bob was the perfect travel agent, as he set up each excursion and arranged our transportation. Try and find that in the States!

We plan on visiting Costa Rica again some time in the near future and will definitely make the Amatierra one of our planned lodging destinations.

Bob and Jill were great hosts, the food was great as well. We were fortunate to be in town for the Costa Rican New Year. Our trip to down town for the celebration is one of my most lasting memories of our trip to Costa Rica. We will definately make another trip, and look forward to visiting during one Bob's future concerts..

We had a wonderful vacation at Amatierra July 2006. Jill & Bob, the owners, are great and help any way they can. They scheduled drivers for us and set up our stay by Manuel Antonio park as well. Their grounds are beatiful, we saw many birds and butterflys from the deck during breakfast. The staff are nice, the group evenings wonderful for visiting and sharing about your day. We will return.

Lovely setting, high in the mountains. The area was beautiful abundant birds, flora, and close to incredible parks and beach.
Our stay at the hotel was peaceful and private, with a perfect blend of local interaction. We visited the local villages and parks. Then returned for a lovely evening meal on a gorgeous outdoor deck overlooking the mountain vistas. We would return in a minute, thanks to our hosts Bob and Jill.

Bob, Jill, and Tara were wonderful hosts. This was one of our favorite hotels because of the personal touches. We ate dinner with the family and had some of the best home cooked meals we've ever tasted. Our own little casita down the hill gaves us plenty of privacy with wonderful surroundings. Bob and Jill really cared about who we were and how they could enlighten our visit to Costa Rica. They were so wonderful it was almost sad leaving and after only two nights we felt like part of the family. We would certainly without hesitation recommend this to all our friends and we have.
